And I have to admit, I'm still mad we didn't trade into the 2nd for Lance Stephenson to play PG. That should've been the easiest move to make all off-season.
No matter how you look at it...this franchise is turning the corner. Season ticket holders are up, sponsorships are up, and most importantly product on the floor is up.
Honestly, I would have given us a -1 if the Toronto deal went through. We would have had alot more problems than we have now. And we would've helped a team close to us in the conference get better while we seemingly would have gotten worse.
But this Dallas deal doesnt hurt us. Declining contracts on Najera, and Carroll, plus a nice piece of bait/or space depending on how the Dampier contract works out. Alexis is a scrub, and better to cut our loss with that now. He was a bust, and I chalk that up to Larry being excited to return to coaching, and wanting to mold some raw talent.
This front office has done a nice job the last year. Getting rid of EO's inflated contract, signing Flip, trading for Jack, Hughes, Theo, TT were all good moves...that obviously guided us to where we wanted to go.
The one thing I have confidence in is that this group will address the issues on hand. Right now it appears to be Center and PG. The Damp contract might not be enough to answer both, but I have faith with as many moves as weve made in the past 2 seasons...we will be straight come Oct.
What?! You guys are forgetting the biggest coup in Free Agency 2010!
YES. WE. DID.
