isn't expendable, but I think there is way too much hatred and subjective analysis regarding his stats and play that often ignores some of his positive contributions.
Because he was a first overall pick means absolutely nothing at this point but yet he's still chastized for it. That's hate, pure and unharnessed. For fucks sake, we could have been stuck with Ammo or Tyrus. If only we had taken Aldridge and traded that turncoat Bosh
before he bailed!
Last sentence was just for effect!
I would take my chances with Kleiza, DD and Lowry carrying the bulk of the scoring load and I actually think that we'd be a better team defensively with our 4 and 5 men actually battling under the boards instead of floating around the perimeter.
And as jeff said... presumably we'd get something of value back for Bargs
which might help there too.
*sigh* I'd gladly trade the money that we spent on Fields and Bargs
