Honestly, you make a great point, but what jumps out at me, is that we obviously have some great pieces, but its not working out.Originally Posted by Dnbman
Gerald and Jrich dont seem to play to well together. I have to say, I liked our team while gerald was out. So what it tells us is that we need some kind of shake up within the team. This draft has some pretty strong talent, and its time to chance it and look for a new solution.
As far as getting it right and wrong, your absolutely right, look at Darko, people thought he was going to be a huge star, and Detriot picked him OVER Dwayne, Melo, and Bosh. The horror.
I think the idea of shaking up the team is really what is perpetuating this acquire draft pick mentality. We got Wallace at such a steal contract, to risk it for draft picks may seem crazy, but the Bobcats need something, and sometimes that is found by taking big risks, something that I havent really seen the bobcats take yet.
Obviously we dont want to screw ourselves, but getting draft picks pretty much protects us from that. Low contracts, three years, then a fourth team option. It could set us up for a bright, bright, future or just be a mistake we can navigate around.
So far, Okafor hasnt worked out (in my opinion), so we dont resign him for 13 mill, and instead we have space to pick up someone else and move on. If we decide to move away from Wallace and to somewhere else including draft picks, we have potential to set us up extremely well, or we can continue to work around it.
Chicago's mistake shows everyone that talent does not equal wins. Which is why the bobcats need to change it up too, because I definitely think we have some serious talent.
