No way do I want to part with a future second, would rather pick up someone from the Dleague.

I remember when Telfair was the main piece given up in a trade for Brandon Roy.

It's easy to win when you're the only one in the race.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

Telfair has played very well, he lost his minutes to team politics nothing else.

Telfair is nothing special. I'd go as far as saying Lucas>Telfair. They're pretty much interchangeable.
If it's for Kleiza then the deal makes sense. If BC gives up a pick, that'll be stupid.

Building a good playoff team requires pieces, Telfair is a good piece. Settle down, not every trade has to be a home run for an allstar...

Would like to land Telfair he's a very solid 2nd unit PG...and thats a need for us, plus hes only 27

Telfair is a decent back up guard these days, don't know why he gets so much hate. He's not a cap killing contract, he's not a locker room cancer, can run a team and hit the 3 off the bench. Giving up a draft pick every year gets tiring BUT Telfair isn't god awful. I'd be okay with this deal.

His advanced stats, per 36 stats, and per game stats are all pretty bad. John Lucas has a higher assist % and he passes once every 7 games. This is a pretty nothing move, but also seemingly unnecessary.
