The hate is strong with you this off season Clyde, I think you need to realise that being a GM in the NBA aint that easy and you need to exercise some restraint in that regard. I don't like all of the moves made either, 1 in particular, but there is no manual or brochure available on resetting an all-time great team when seriously ageing, and the best player in the world tells us in the 11th hour he's bolting us. They are doing the very best they can, and unfortunately when your making this many moves, they are going to whif on some of the ideas they come up with.
This season is going to be about patience, and making sure that D-Lo acquisition turns out the very best it can, both on the court and at trade window times. This season will belong to the Clippers, so we are setting up for a huge run the following season. Next year is about MVP Curry year, so sit back, grab yourslf a pint of lager and enjoy.
Myers has been slowly pissing me off lately, pushed me off the edge this last draft after, AGAIN, he completely neglects the wing position.
i do not have much faith in his vision for this team, scouting or decision making, and I haven't seen anything since The Logo left to alleviate those concerns. hope I am wrong.
They'll be aware of the gaping hole they now have on the wings. We won titles with Durant, Iguodala, Barnes, Klay and Livingston in the team at different points, all long athletic defenders and shooters with unique abilities, they will be aware of the importance of them. Hell, we basically invented the positionless basketball team that was full of these wing types, so I don't buy for a second that they aren't aware of what this team will need to address from here on in. The fact is though, we were hamstrung in acquiring difference making wings this offseason due our situation, so this offseason was about grabbing the BPA available in return for the best player in the world, and then cramming as many minimum guys in as we can.
The off season wasn't ideal, but let's not pretend GMing would be easy in that situation. I think Lacob was also pulling a lot of strings this offeason, especially with the D-Lo acquisition and wanting a return on his investment.
Let's wait and see. Who knows, Smiley could be the new Peja for all we know.
