Signing guys like Landry and Kleiza before you've gotten enough core pieces in place doesn't help long term success.
Well I heard he turned down a job in Europe in the hope of landing an NBA job. Surely he can't be that fussy?! Sheed went back to NY because of Woodson, he said it himself.
I agree most guys might not wanna come to TO, but whats the harm in a revolving door until we hit the jackpot? 1) we suck anyway 2) fans don't resent overpaid players 3) Higher chance of getting the next superstar 4) second only to championships is HOPE (maybe false) when it comes to happy fan bases 5) It would ESTABLISH A CULTURE OF ACCOUNTABILITY - you're not gonna get paid for being average - you need to work incredibly hard to play for TO.

I think it becomes apparent more and more every year what a superstar CB4 was and how important he was to this team. We've suffered more without him than the cavs have without LBJ for gawds sake!!!!!
