My thoughts, exactly. Except for the bit about Paul Pierce, which I didn't know. MJ didn't use his own money--lots of his own money--to purchase a pathetic, losing team. And I can't see that he's going to sit on his laurels and watch himself lose money for an entire season. Me-thinks he'll make some changes. Building through draft picks will take too long. Better to use some of our better players packaged with Diop as trade bait, as was earlier suggested.
