So Durant attracted Westbrook and Ibaka? Coulda swore they were drafted.
I also didn't know players were required to be GM's now.
Griffin got Paul, Jordan, and a top 5 coach in the league. (arguably the deepest roster in the NBA)
George got my other argument for the deepest roster in the NBA (definitely in the East).
Harden got Howard and Parsons
Curry got Lee, Thompson, Barnes, Iguodala
Their respective GM's had nothing to do with that? Gotcha.
So 2.5 million (rounded up) is the reason why we have a poor roster? If we had that 2.5 million dollars, which is the difference in Anthony's contract and LeBron James, our GM would have gone out and gotten talent. But because he so selfishly gets paid that extra 2.5 mill, we were forced to spend out mini mid level on Pablo Prigioni and Ron Artest. We were forced to spend our summer courting Elton Brand. We were forced to give up a first rounder for Andrea Bargnani who was likely to be amnestied anyway. We were forced to spend 14 million dollars on Tyson Chandler. We were forced to give Amare Stoudemire and uninsured contract.
I stand corrected
