God damn you guys live second to second.
Y'all chill the hell out.
2 years ago, Dwight walked and we had NOTHING. Kobe with a torn achilles, old man Pau, WAY OLD Nash, and no picks upcoming outside of 2014.
There was a huge split of fans that WANTED TO LOSE to max that pick out, and while we didn't exactly do that, the draft was deep enough to net us Randle, and Mitch was good enough to buy Clarkson. Good start.
He tried to ruin us by offering Melo 97 million dollars that thankfully Melo said no to. And because of that, we now have our PG of the future in Russell, and a couple other diamonds in the rough hopefully in Nance, Brown, and Upshaw.
Develop THEM. Focus, on THEM. And THEN, players will take our money.
LMA hasn't even said no yet. DeAndre hasn't even said no yet. Monroe or Tobias while secondary options, are both solid young NBA players, that we can add to the mix of youth we have assembled. They haven't said no yet either. Tyson Chandler, RoLo, haven't said no yet.
Point blank, we are better this year, than we were the last two. The talent level is upgraded. The upside is WAY upgraded. The youth is building. All we need to do now, is let them play. What in the hell are people cryin about Okafor for when we still haven't even witnessed D'Angelo pass the basketball yet? That kid is going to attract players, but he has to show his game first.
If we lose LMA to the Spurs, can anyone really fault him on that? He might be thinking this year, vs 3 years from now, but we don't even know that yet, CUZ HE HASN"T DONE ANYTHING YET.
But you all still in here screaming.
It's day 1. One. As in, the first damn day of free agency, people are hanging ropes up for themselves.
