Revisionist history!!! My favorite thing. The NBA isn't an if/then statement and logic doesn't fit. Go out to shamsports.com or somewhere and add up what these guys are and have been paid since and tell me if 6th in the east is worth that.
I'm surprised we made the playoffs with that team honestly. Was a good move to rebuild.

if the goal is the have a team that can get a 5-8 seed, then yeah keep them together. if the goal is a team that compete for the Eastern Conference title, then you blow it up.
