There's no doubt that the Collison/Ariza side has potentially more upside, but I dont know that it can possibly be realized, at least this season.
On the side, how crazy would this offer had looked during your draft? You wouldve taken Ariza and Collison all day over a returning-from-injury Jameer and scrub Matthews. Crazy how things play out like that.
truth. but regardless, wes is the best player in that deal, thats the funny part. always take the best player.
