My point is, regardless of his improvement last year, its not like the cavs didnt bother to assess his value with the rest of the league before making this trade.
he's borderline star, and on the road he's on, he'll be one. i stand by that. mark my words. a lot of you i swear either didn't watch him much last year or were watching something completely different than i was. I'd say he's in the top 15 PF's in the league EASY.
and if he were in this draft class, based on last years performance, he'd be the #1 overall pick.
And its absolutely absurd for anyone to say Casspi is the better player, let alone a GM. thats crazy talk.
