So he turned an 8th pick into a 5th pick and abused the Sonics GM in the process.

What a loser.

MJ could've ended the lockout whenever he wanted by announcing his return IF the owners signed on the line.

This thought that Krause wanted to break up the Bulls, against everyone else's wishes is a load. We wouldn't beleive it if MJ didn't spew it -- it just doesn't make any amount of sense...sure he would'nt pay Jackson and Pippen and MJ the world for them to return, but by demanding the world...they make it impossible to be signed.

We all want fiscal responsibility, but when its exercised we don't blame the players makinbg outrageus demands -- we blame the management for not meeting them.

I appreciate your laziness sparing me embarassment

Or maybe, the players were the right pieces for that team and not super-talents in their own right.

Recognizing the right peices and not just throwing talent together...I'd consider that a pretty big strength in a GM.
