Simple as that.
Blame whoever you want. He`s the GM. The trade was his responsibility.
He engineered the deal that Embry made... Search long and hard for the article, because their never was one. Embry made the deal. Once again, simple as that. If Babcock engineered it, he should of pulled the trigger. Jalen was dragging the team down and everyone in the league knew he was on the blocks but poor old Babs never made the move.
Embry did. Speculate all you want, that`s what happened.
Charlie V is a bum.
Mike James was playing for himself.
His legacy begins and ends at giving Jose a chance in the NBA.
C'mon man... lol.... as a GM his job was to field offers. He did that. he had the offer from NJ in December. Peddie took it to the board (as team president I believe) over his head. Things were different back then. Babcock didn't have the autonomy that BC has now.
Same thing with the Jalen deal. As a GM why would you make a deal in December when the deadline isn't until Feb? That's just bad business.
CV... Mike James.... Jose.... hindsight my friend.
I'm sure that I can compile a list of BC's failures that would make your skin crawl.
