Give me a break. Just be happy we got GarPax and Boylen out and we (hopefully) will not be the laughing stock of the league anymore.
I'm not asking for a complete roster overhaul so I'll exclude myself from that statement. But to just be happy that Garpax and Boylen are out? Sorry I can't just be happy about that. I mean I am happy with that but what difference does it make if we are the same team with a different front office? I mean I root for the entertainers that are playing out on the basketball court not the guys wearing the suits.
There is no point in trying to improve through trades at this point considering everyones trade value is at its lowest. And it also makes little sense to handicap our cap flexibility trying to sign mediocre free agents this season. AK/ME have preached player development from the beginning, with that we'll get a better idea of how good our players can become and even raise their value on the trade market to THEN start making moves.
Well first off I don't think anyone is asking to sign mediocre free agents. I'm all for player development but some of these players had their chance to develop already and they are what they are. But thats besides the point.
I'm not the GM obviously, I don't have the professional insight that they do. But as a fan I don't necessarily need to dig into that stuff to see that this team needs improvement and if no improvements are made then we are only to assume that we are settling for mediocrity until we "evaluate" or "develop" the players we already have with another set of coaches and/or let the current vet contracts expire. That is not a very exciting outcome from getting what we thought was a front office that was going to build a better product than the previous front office. But if we plan on using their leftovers then I guess some of us fans are just going to have to be patient....sigh
