Dwight didn't start with a public trade request.
And then today's interview happened, with the GM BS. That's what I mean by him handling it well, and then suddenly screwing it up.
Oh, my bad.
No I'm not watching it closely at all.
I assumed it was just another "Fuck you, trade me" from the stars.

You have a point there, but miami also took a huge hit that season being one of the worst. For the Mavs I just dont see them being one of them depleting their entire team and then taking a chance to rise back to the top. If they were to get the big 3 it would be done via trades. But the only huge asset I see that teams would want is Haywood. He was a huge part in why they won the Finals

He's talking to Sager on NBA tv, talking about wanting to stay and change the culture of the city and the team, but also wanting to be traded, wanting to win. He's strung two dozen cliches together and makes absolutely no sense. This has been the toughest thing he's ever gone though. He's prayed, he's fasted, he talked to his pastor. He says he is human and has a big heart. WTF12 is how I will refer to him from now on.

He might not have said he fasted. I can't figure out what he might have said instead. And with the weird shit he was saying, I think he actually said fasted.

Ha, i was watching the same thing. He states he asked to be dealt, then right after that said his heart is in Orlando and that he'd prefer to stay. The funniest part though is him saying this is the hardest decision of his life and that he's praying and consulting with his pastor, friends, other players, his parents......

these guys kill me. And he did say he fasted. lol

I just watched the video, it looked like he was just talking scripted crap and kraig sagar knew that, so he was asking him direct questions to either get an answer, or show everyone that dwight's crap is all scripted and he wants to look like the victim because he's going to leave.

If Robinson would have been 5 years younger when Duncan was drafted I'd have agreed 100%.... he was a legendary C but he was almost on his last legs at that point.

I agree with everything else you've said though. Dwight would get mauled by the C's of old.

I don't get why someone like Dwight doesn't try to recruit players to his team. its not like they are far away from contending.

i'm not sure he tried that hard. it was probably more like
"Hey Chris, wanna come to Cleveland? no? ok, let me call my boy Maverick Carter on that Decision thing we talked about... ohh by the way Chris, maybe we should meet up and work on post game this summer? say what? busy, got to do parade? ok, maybe some other summer then."

i believe this is how it went down. toronto had no chance to get the big 3 but miami and cleveland we're financially able to do that. so thats why i think lebron didn't come straight with dan gilbert from the beginning because there was a chance the big 3 could land in cleveland, albeit a very small chance. but i remember reports saying there was no way chris was going to cleveland. he didn't want to go their at all. so in the end they went to miami.
which brings me to another point. people getting mad at lebron for "joining" wade's team. the point was the 3 of them were going to play together and it just so happened it worked out with miami.

ur point about where they ended has some validity but the way it went down? all 3 making their teams hang, no melo type deal for us, "the decision," the parade, "we're gonna win 8 championships!"

For the first 4 years playing with Duncan, The Admiral was still averaging about 17 points, 10 boards and 2+blks per hame.

Those two were an absolutely unreal duo, much different than Dirk and Dwight would be though. They're essentially on two separate ends of the big man spectrum which is why it'd be crazy to watch.

oh i agree but that wasn't the point i was making. the point was the big 3 wanted to play together ANYWHERE and it was possible in miami and cleveland among other places. but Bosh wanted to part of cleveland. so people took that as wade recruit the other two and lebron GOING to wade for a championship.
