I understand the 1st round pick from Toronto for Lowry helped send a Harden to Houston (giggle), but what if we would of hung on to that young-cheap-badass in Kyle Lowry, not overpaid Lin, and then still land James M-Effin Harden by offering all three of our 2012 first round picks + KMart and a reach-around?

That'd truly be an all-star backcourt, no?

Yes, I understand, it's all hypothetical hindsight... But one can get stoned (legally) and imagine.

If we didn't trade Lowry we wouldn't have the Toronto pick, which was a big piece in the Harden deal.

I'm sure they would taken all three of our 2012 First Rounders in lieu of the Toronto pick. And I'd happily of given them up to see Harden and Lowry together.

We should have given Dragic his player option. Dragic/Harden backcourt would be better than Lin/Harden or Lowry/Harden.

Lowry was too undisciplined, the guy never took a shot he didn't like. To have that attitude as a SG is ok, sometimes. But that isn't what you want from your PG. That is why Westbrick and the Thunder have problems, you don't want a shoot first PG.

Dragic was a good decision maker, he understood the game very well and had playoff experience under his belt. I'm still pissed that we let him go over a player option.

If we had with Dragic,

we couldnt have another Max contract next season.

Only IF some Super Star accept a 3 years max contract...

Isn't Lowry hurt right now? You'd actually be watching a Douglas/Harden backcourt.

Please lower your expectation on Lin. Cuz I guess it's better for this team.

You guys should meditate, smoke pot and hit some of that newage-hipster-lady pu-tang more often.. You all are way too uptight.

Irving is always a liability on the defensive end. He allowed 1.02 ppp last season...worst among guards.
