Draft picks doesn't save him. Please stop acting like it does. Every team in the NBA gets 2 picks every draft. They have the option to move them or use them. Phil has done both. Having draft picks is not a miracle. It's expected.
Jackson has made both good and bad moves. Period. We don't really have to go down the list, but he's had more than one good and damn sure more than one bad.
You sound like the chicks that defend their trifling, ho ass man by saying "at least he doesn't beat me".
Right, because it's Phil's fault we didn't have our 2014 and 2016 first rounders, meaning he had no reason to tank
You know who was picked with those two picks?
Dario Saric and Jamal Murray.
And Zach Lavine was taken one pick after our 2014 first
Guaranteed if we had those two picks we'd be in a much better spot right now
That'd be like you getting mad at Sean Marks in two years when the Nets still suck. The only thing the Nets have now that we didn't in 2014 is cap space
Regardless of what you think of the other moves I didn't mention (IMO, they don't matter in the long run), the team is in a better spot now then when Jax took over, that's all I'm saying.
He's been far from great, but by no means is he terrible.
Apparently that's too hard to understand for some on this board
I never in life blamed loss of picks on him.
I don't care who was taken with those picks that Donnie and Grunnie traded.
Phil is in his 4th year now. 4th. Not 1st, 2nd or even 3rd. This summer will be his 4th off-season, his 4th draft, his 4th free agency.
And no, we are not in a better spot. Our picks were already coming. With or without Phil. That's seems like it's too hard for you to grasp along with the "but we have our picks" crew.
Draft picks are given to each and every team. Stop acting like they aren't. Hell, with DRAFTED Shumpert and Hardaway before Phil. So picks were here. We didn't have back to back years of our picks but we were always in the clear from 2017 on BEFORE PHIL.
Right, because if Dolan didn't hire Phil, I'm sure whoever he did hire would've kept those picks. In reality, neither you or I know that, so I'm going with we have 16 years of trading picks, why would it be different now?
And in 2014 when Phil took over, we were nearly 30 million over the cap in free agency.
We had one first round pick over the next 3 years
Our best young player was Tim Hardaway Jr
Now we have 23 million in cap going into free agency, all of our picks, and KP and Willy, both of whom are better than THJ.
This team is by far in a better spot than when Phil took over
