    #4 keep repeating the Tilman mantra over and over in your head until it is reflexive.

    None of that will change the fact that he layed off thousands of employees without benefits during a pandemic and proceeded to buy a superyacht shortly after. Hating Tilman as an owner is passe. Hating him as a human is where it's at.

    We could have signed Ariza and flipped him the same way Phoenix did. Instead of bringing him back we brought in a guy that we salary dumped to dodge the tax, Melo, and MCW. If we had some better or comparable option then yea we could have gone with that but we went bottom of the bottom of the barrel instead and that’s why Harden had to score 40 a night — and probably why he ultimately left.

    He was also flapping his gums like this concurrently:

    Russell Westbrook is living proof that this is wrong. There's a certain poetry there.

    There is enough justifiable hate to fill a 190 threads

    James the immortal Ennis. Signed him to replace Trevor. Enough said

    There is no guarantee that we could have gotten that same deal, nobody thought the Wizards would be that desperate, I have no idea why people act like this deal was on the table for everybody.

    Why does everyone conveniently forget that Ariza was absolute trash in the playoffs right before we went another direction?

    He played no D and he couldn't hit 3's to save his life when it mattered. If he was the player so many pretend he was, the Rockets beat the Warriors.

    Instead, he was arguably the worst player on the roster in the playoffs that final season here.... who wants more of that?

    This.

    People really really need to stop judging GMs on deals they imagine to be out there. If there are no sources to it don't just imagine there was a better deal to be had out there. I see a lot of this going on nowadays...

    I never said for the exact same players. I said we could have flipped him. He obviously had more value than Ennis who we had to give up assets to get off of to dodge the tax.

    This analysis is spot on. The fact that Tilman did not go into the tax with Harden is why Harden is no longer here.
