All this was done under the false pretense of accumulating assets to lure in a superstar to a team no one cared about after TMac and Yao went down, with a GM hellbent on setting records for player turnover.
Patrick Patterson? Marcus Morris? Solid college role players with limited upside for a team low on talent? Check.
Dorsey, Budinger, scrubs? Check.
Nicolas Batum, star, traded? Check.
Chandler Parsons, an irreplaceable guy who averages 9 and 5 on a non playoff team? Check.
Lowry, Martin, Pau, Nene, first round fodder 10 times out of 10? Check.
Take off the blinders, deloaf. He's overrated by sports journalists and internet posters because they relate to an MIT guy, not because he's done anything relevant.
Budinger got you a first round pick. He originally was a second rounder.
Batum is not a franchise changer.
I mean, they traded Tmac for those first round pics and Kmart. I mean, thats what you do when you try to rebuild, you trade for a ton of first round players, some young promising talent and you go from there.
And then a commissioner comes in an *****s your world up .
And the only superstar available to get in a trade is a diva in Dwight Howard who is so stuck up in his own world and refuses to be mature about anything.
This isn't just 2K where you can just go to the "trade finder" option and see ridiculous trades and get guys like Kobe and LeBron. It just doesn't happen like that.
You can only trade for teams willing to trade with you. Dwight is the only true franchise changer on the block.
And he's a diva. Oops. Stupid Morey. Go drug Pat Riley and to trade Jones, Scola, Martin, and Lamb for LeBron.
Or just change the settings to auto force teams to accept your trade offers.
Because there just isn't a plethora of teams dangling their stars out there, Orlando gets to control the market and jack up their asking price because where else is Morey going to turn to get the superstar?
I'm happy Morey isn't overpaying for rent-a-Howard.
