What people fail to realize is that we and Cleveland were already in the tank, but we went younger, probably to our benefit. The same people who were mad at the J.O. and Turk signings wanted a no-direction patch on the team to gain 7 more wins.

As much as people wanted 9th place....maybe we should have gotten Baron Davis and Gilbert Arenas then??? Playing and developing is part of being in the tank. Among the young guys, we probably are closest to seeing what to expect from Amir, but I can totally see Colangelo waiting to see what Davis brings and kind of a secondary sophmore season for JJ, Bayless. We even have to wait to see Kleiza healthy or what can we get for him?
