for the most part Kupchak been getting the respect for the fans. the picks and signings are not 100% dead on but you cant get everything right. at least he been able to get out from under some of the bad contracts. some people cant figure out at times you have to take 1 step back to take 2 steps forward.
I hear what you are saying but in this case it is more than fair to read between the lines. Mitch is always very prepared before he goes into an interview. It is extremely unlikely that Jimmy was involved in the decision and Mitch forgot to mention it, and extremely likely that Dr. Buss said to get the deal done no matter what. I think he wants to pass Boston for most titles before he dies or becomes senile.
