Re: Paxson is a hot mess
The only Paxson has over Krause as a GM/VP is that Krause would've passed on Derrick Rose seeing as he seemed to hate local kids (with the exception given to Eddy Curry).
Paxson hasn't set the world on fire with some of his moves. Noah turned out great, but his love of Duke players has hurt this team, none have panned out (Deng is too iffy at this point).
Having said that, I wouldn't want him fired because he does an adequite job at his position, but he needs to hire a new coach. VDN is not the guy for this job, even considering the remarkable job he has done this year with all this team has went through. Had those injuries not happened, we'd easily be a 50-53 win team. Easily. I just don't think he has it in him yet to advance as a coach or take this team any further than they will wind up tonight.
