Re: Why do some GMs appear to be so dumb?
NBA GM's forgot more about basketball while sitting on the toilet this morning than most fans will ever know.
Fans have the advantage of looking at deals in hindsight and saying how good/bad they were. They're not called on to make decisions in real time and have their job hanging in the balance.
It's time consuming to go back through threads and find all the places an individual poster was incredibly stupid. Not so hard to analyze every GM's comment/decision.
They only appear dumb to those that are deluding themselves in a fantasy world where they actually know something.
