I don't think you could be more wrong. Good business is a happy business. Talent alone isn't going to win you a championship. If you think this team would be where it is now, in the play offs, if it wasn't for the team comradory that was built on Patty Mills, then you really don't know much about this team. "uncle cam", "lil bro" "wessywes", this team cares for each other and that is their strongest attribute. This team can contend already, and the future is bright with Elliot Williams and Greg next season. We're inches away from one of the elite teams, if we lose pretty much and two guys from this roster, and it would almost start over.
i completely agree with Corey. I think your analysis of the "baggage" players is not even close. Andre is not over the hill and anyone with any amount of a basketball iq knows that. no one is asking Patty to lead the team and this is basically his rookie season -- give the kid some time and take into consideration what he does off the court; Marcus is a hell of a defender, still -- blocked shots are a minor part of defense, but changing a shot is very important and Marcus does that (6 blocks a game? the playoff leader is only averaging 3. Brandon was NOT given his contract extension when he was coming off the bench; he likely needs the off-season to get to the level he's going to get too (besides, you can't just trade that size of contract). additionally, you can't judge Brandon's future by seven weeks following surgery as he came back to an entirely different offensive scheme. granted, Rudy is a bit perplexing right now; his shot is inconsistent, however, his hustle is invaluable. look, i've read some of your blogs, and i understand you're one of those who wants to make sweeping change, but the bottom line is this: the season is still going on. no moves are going to be made until season's end (we can't even talk to Greg about his contract until July 1 under league regulations). if i may suggest something here; try looking at the big picture and do some research. imo, any blog about trades or other moves is extremely premature.
You read my mind Kassandra.
Pattey cake is a bad shooter and not that great?
See you at 7:30 tonight!
