Ratliff may be old but he only has 1 or 2 more years on his contract where LaFrentz had 3-4 years, and Ratliff still is one of the best defending centers and shot blockers in the NBA. He will make this team better.

Granted McHale messed up the draft but his team atleast does OK for the season. Thomas wastes Dolan's money on overpaid and overrated players like Francis, J Rose, Marbury, and his past mistakes like P Hardaway, Mohammad, etc. Thomas is like a GM w/ brain damage.
