Wording was a little strange but I agree with the general concept. A future all-star should be treated as such. Granted, yes T-mac hadn't reached his full potential as of yet but you gotta cater to the young talent because then they will remain loyal to you (in most cases) when they become bigger and their contracts run out. And as an NBA exec, you gotta be willing to take those risks.
