He got Pippen that year and the team needs to get a Rodman or a 3rd star. Luka has a Pippen in KP, now he needs a Rodman to defend and watch his back.
Luka is being punked now by the Clippers the same way Michael got it with the Detroit bad boys. They're really gonna come after you and try to injure you. If Dallas cannot get Giannis in 2021, then maybe they can max out someone like Bam Adebayo to play that Dennis Rodman 3rd star role. You need an enforcer somehow to protect your stars from getting punked.
agree with this.. the unfortunate part is we probably have to max that 3rd star, which is a need to outbid other teams. as i said on the other thread landing either Bam or OG would do wonders for this team. Our offense is already capable of winning a championship, what we need are defenders and enforcers. Miami can max out Bam, if they would remains to be seen while raptors can most likely offer OG 14m/yr below unless they clear a ton of cap.
