If by "too long" I would agree....about 4 months too long.

As soon as a "star" player refuses an extension mid season, they should be traded. It's "tough love" and probably would piss off a few fans, but it's good business.

How many more assets would we have if we traded Bosh , McBaby, or even Carter (I know, not an extension scenario) to contenders when they refused the Raps offers?

Easy mistake to be made by a new team. But we are not new anymore. Time to play hardball!
