While I can't blame the FO for keeping our core and going all in with them, I blame the FO for keeping our core and not taking advantage of Jimmy's window
But I blame Jimmy too; if he wanted roster upgrades he should've spoken up- he didn't.
If stars/superstars don't insist on roster upgrades they usually don't happen. I blame Iggy too, cause phuck that dude
It's not a matter of FO being satisfied with the roster. There was a plan, Giannis. Jimmy knew about the plan. Unfortunately the plan had risks and it didn't work out.
Now its just about getting through the season and so that they can reass their options in the summer. We all know how Riley operates they are about now. If they see a long term move that could lead to a dynasty like getting Giannis they will be patient. Otherwise they will make moves for now. I 100 % gurantee they would stand pat in the summer. In fact they didn't in the trade deadline, unfortunately again the gamble they took with Oladipo didn't work out.
You can criticize whether they made the right decisions. But to be fair to the FO you can't say they are standing pat. Not everything works out
Not making moves this summer was the same as saying they were content, hoping for Giannis wasn't a plan or action
