You have to give more credit than just this season, he's been pretty solid since trading Butler for Kwame....and in the long run that helped us get Gasol, so its all worked itself out.
He's done well in the draft the past couple of years, drafting Bynum, Farmar, Turiaf (2nd round), J-Critt, and Marc Gasol (2nd round).
The Shaq trade doesn't look so bad now that it helped us nab Gasol and the pick we got in that trade ended up being Famar.
Of course some of the best things he's done is not make a trade just to shake things up, IE JO for Odom/Bynum or Bynum in a J-Kidd deal. He waited for a deal to make us better.
Its been a couple years in the making!
