Yeah I agree.

I don't agree with it, but that's what will likely happen.

Are you saying he's better right now or what? Cause IMO Nick Collison is pretty damn good.

Hard to define "better" in this situation, but perhaps Collison is more refined and Adams is still a bit raw.

No doubt Adams has more talent, and it's arguable to suggest either player is "better" than one another at this point...

I know it's a very small sample size, but to me it seems like Collison is a much better passer and has a higher IQ. That's not a knock on Adams though. It's just that I agree, Nick Collison can play.

Not Presti's fault he drafted too much talent all at once.

Nope but it was his fault for giving away a top ten player for pennies on the dollar

Considering his logic in signing ancient Derek Fisher, you might be right.

And since the Mavs will sux until then basically OKC gonna get a high lottery pick in 2016

Sam Presti is GOAT

You realize Martin has already left; and as of now neither Lamb or Adams have proven a thing right? It would take both of these guys becoming borderline all-stars to make the trade look even decent.

Neither Lamb or Adams have proved a thing just like neither Durant, Westbrook, Harden, Ibaka, Reggie had proved a thing.
