I want the team to get better now because by the time Jonas will be the NBA ready player we all want him to be, the players we wanna keep may not gonna re-sign. We saw it with Carter, Bosh
and if we don`t get better fast we may see it from DD, Amir and Ed. It`s a fact, no good players wanna play on a struggling team, knowing other teams want them, simple as that.
Carter re-signed twice actually. Bosh
only once. McGrady didn't. I think that's all over-stated. You're right that they could have been immediately better, but this team is so far away from competing they needed longterm high-end talent.
