CMc$ : I agree with you. My point of comparing the two is that the difference between them is much greater than we would have liked to admit. But we cannot just fool ourselves here. Ray, at best, is an avg PG in the NBA. If we have a chance to do better, I would not pass on it at all. You can see how the teams with a great PG always seem to be rising to the top of the standings. That is the straw that stirs the drink, and right now, our straw is not so strong as to be able to stir the drink on a nightly basis.
Just a much a difficlut pill to swallow is our averageness on the front line. Okafor is not one of the elite, and neither is Nazr. We have only one truly elite player, and that is Crash. J-Rich is next closest, but not quite in that league. No one else on the team even warrants comparison. We have to get our hands on the players who can become elite.
