if i remember correctly, at the time pietrus was still a totally unproven commodity, and no one saw him as a defensive standout. bc went for the 'sure thing' in kapono's 3pt stroke. not seeing that a player who has never accomplished anything will turn into the lebron stopper is hardly surprising.
the kapono signing was a mistake, no doubt, but not signing pietrus...?
woulda, coulda, shoulda indeed.
