Besides we have Yi now who also will now draw more people to come to games.
The question was more valuable not more talented
i have news for you- devin harris is not so incredibly good that they're building the team around him. sorry, he just isn't.
i guarantee you that vandy and thorn are not passing up any players at any time because they "don't think they'd be a good fit with harris".
the only way they're "building the team around harris" is that they have no choice but to build around anyone who they plan to have around for the future. that means they're also building the team around boone, lopez and the rest of the projected starters.
it may be that in a year or two harris blossoms, puts his stamp on the team, and starts influencing the types of players they bring in. but even then it would probably only be "influencing", not "building around".
