You don't? Fuck we analyze them before they happen. But seriously, the deals being discussed here made a lot of sense when they were made. I remember Webber saying the Raps had one of the best front courts in the east with JO/CB early that season. As for the Turkoglu deal, it was deemed huge since he was the biggest FA that summer. The fact that they didn't pan out isn't the GM's fault imo. Even the Kapono signing, overpaying aside, we needed a 3pt shooter and he signed a 50% 3pt shooter.
