It's not out of the realm of possiblity.. just rememeber.. people thought Nellie was crazy to trade Tractor Traylor for Dirk.. people act like Milwaukee was the only ones getting fleeced then.. like they were the only ones dumb enoguh tod o that deal.. EVERY NBA tlaking head at the time would have done that deal.

The NBA is a totally different world.. like pople think Durant is going to be much better than Dirk right now.. but they think that becasue Dirk didn't play in college.. so they don't really know. Poeple were saying Darko Milicic was going to be "dirk with a mean streak"... haha Joe Dumars said that supposedly.. just shows how nothing is a given.. what are the worst sports when it comes to predicting how a player will turnout long term? Are there sleepers in ice hockey too?

Comparing Tractor Traylor to Durant or Oden is something more than a stretch. And I don't think anyone thinks Durant is going to be better than Dirk already next year.
