What is your infatuation with David Lee? I mean seriously. Its ridiculous that you claim he is elite. His contract is one of the worst in the NBA. If the Warriors are going to take the step from being playoff contenders/2nd round exit ceiling to title contenders, his contract is simply going to have to come off the books. Show me one title contender that has a player on their team that is paid like a superstar but is not one.
Hes overpaid yes, but people keep talking as if this guy isnt a star player which he is. If you can find a way to get rid of David and get somewhat comparable talent back then sure, by all means, but that trade? It isnt even close. All defensive liabilites aside that man is an elite PF, top ten in my opinion. On the offensive side of the ball he does every single thing you want your power forward to do. Can post, space the floor, AMAZING passer, and he rebounds. Hes easily a top 3 player on his team, can easily be two.
Hes overpaid but one of the worst in basketball? No way, at least his production backs the numbers to some degree even if they are "empty stats"
