Sorry... but expecting a GM to turn around a capped out team with a disgruntled superstar in ONE season was the height of lunacy. I didn't mind him at all because he actually came out and told it like it was. He wasn't afraid to say "honestly... we aren't going to be very good this year". He DID say that and people roasted him for it.
People prefer BC's "used car salesman" approach.
