Because Nets fans certainly think you could with Harris as the 2nd option.
Devin Harris isn't even a Top 10 PG in the NBA,and Jason Kidd still is more effective than Harris yet he's 9 years older than Kidd.
How the **** New Jersey fans feel they got a steal in the Jason Kidd trade is beyond homerness.
Devin Harris-Solid PG
Desagna Diop-Defensive big man currently a Free Agent
Trenton Hassell-$4 Million due in each of the next 2 seasons
Keith Van Horn-Contract
$3 Million-To sign who?
2008 1st Round Pick #21-Is there even value there?
2010 1st Round Pick-Higher than 20
How the **** did Dallas get robbed in that trade other than the fact that Avery Johnson poorly utilized Jason Kidd when he had him,but you're talking about a PG at 34 that was the only All Star from your team,and is a $19 Million Dollar expirer at the end of next season.
Nets got nothing out of the deal for their Franchise's best player of the last 1/4 a century.Someone please argue for Buck Williams or Derrick Coleman.
Yet you get nothing out of the deal other than Devin Harris,JaVale McGee(?),and a 2010 1st Rounder.
Yet your team has $28 Million tied into your 2 "star" players next season but neither are capable of together leading a team to the Playoffs.
Vince Carter has what left in his tank?
I can't believe there was a poster who made an excuse about Carter putting up Triple Doubles 3 years ago like what the **** does that mean,Carter is on the decline in his career and he's gone from being one of the most popular players in the NBA to a guy nobody can remember what team he's playing for.
How does Chicago not have a bright future,did you not learn from Boston of last year who put draft picks and contracts around Paul Pierce and although they sucked,the value of each grew to the point they could acquire both Ray Allen and KG and then keep some of their young talent to serve as role players on their Championship team.
Chicago's young talent has as much value if not more than Boston's young talent,the only thing Chicago lacks were the huge expirers of Wally Z and Theo.
As I've said before it's better to be a 10th seed or lower and build depth with draft picks and hope they can contribute enough to either become a scoring option on the team or to show enough flashes that they could be highly valuable in a trade.
You're not going anywhere with VC and you're not going to get a deal any better than the Ray Allen deal for him due to VC's stupid contract.Of course you could get Jermaine O'Neal but Indiana doesn't need VC.
And I don't hate the New Jersey Nets,I'm just telling how I see it.
I personally hate the Boston Celtics.
