Eric Gordon is a franchise player? Have you watched enough Clipper basketball? I think you're oversimplifying everything. You want to overhaul the roster (again), simply pluck who you want out of where you want, like it's EA sports.... the truth of the matter is that any major rebuild effort through the draft is a 5-8 year project, and it's not even a linear one. There will be times when everyone gets excited because it appears that we are turning a corner only to find that we're still very far away from being a perennial contender. At this point, all BC can do is stockpile talent, make efforts to develop that talent, and build towards a competitive culture. We're years away from being good.
He will be a franchise player in due time trust me, and hes not a 5-8 year project. Maybe in 2 or 3 years max from now , hes gonna be a reallly talented player that everyone is gonna wish they had. Unless BC is just delevoping his young talent and only young talent which is Demar and Ed- (Sonny is garbage, wayyyyyy too inconsitent and Amir aint that young)and then get rid of most of his players than maybe its a good plan. But if they plan to keep Bargnani theyre not gonna get anywhere. Were just gonna go in a continous loop of rebuilding, and rebuilding. Then maybe getting better for a few years , then rebuilding again. How much rebuilding can the raps go through. Since they joined the league , 16 years ago, they probably rebuilded around 4 times already. That is wayy too much. thats a rebuild every 4 years average.
