I doubt you'd be saying that if Adams signed with any other team.

As for Maggette, very unlikely. We got Hassan Adams instead, woo hoo!
The problem is that Colangelo went after TJ. I know people may disagree with me here, but I don't see Bargnani as being significantly better than Villanueva so we could've kept him and drafted Roy.

Well, that's great but we did give up Ford. So you can't just take him out and look at it as Rasho and #17. Ford was an asset to some teams (Indy) and Rasho's contract was an asset and so was the #17.

I love the Indy deal for us, but it was good for them too. My point is that it wasn't a rip off of a deal for us where we won big time. We gave up a lot to get a lot.
