What Isiah did in NYK? Now THAT was horrible GM'ing.
So did I. And I remember those games against the Kings, Warriors and Lakers when Haffa was actually pretty solid (did you look at the game logs?).
Haffa wasn't supposed to be Tim Duncan coming into the league. He was more a Zaza P. type. If anyone thought differently then that was their mistake.
I remember the Kings game because I was at that game. I think that was his only double double that season, or one of three at best.
I wanted him to succeed, but he just wasn't even going to be the next Eric Montross, let alone Zaza.
