Isaiah 1:18 -- Come now, and let us reason together
Any habitual action, such as eating or dressing, may be performed on the appropriate occasion, without any need of thought, and the same seems to be true of a painfully large proportion of our talk. -- Bertrand Russell
I am a huge fan of Paul, but the practical side of me says he does not fit. It will be tough to demote him back to the bench. He is a lower tier starter, but would dominate off the bench IF he could accept that.
From another angle, if Koufus can go from a 3rd/4th big to a starter/rotation guy, what do Kanter and Favors do with a legitimate chance to start with no associated drama? I remember thinking Koufus would be out of the league soon after he left.
I wonder what Jefferson would say to a bench role? Not immediately, but as Kanter and Favors progress?
If a championship is the goal, either Paul or Al works off the bench, otherwise a change in direction is needed.
I would love to get Bledsoe....
If we trade them Pual, we would have to take back Odom to get Bledsoe to make money work!
If we could convince them to take our picks and Watson for Bledsoe that would be awesome!!
Think about this more immediately. If the Clips had Millsap in there instead of ****ing Turiaf, then they'd seriously be real contenders. When an org has the opportunity that get that extra oomph, then the good ones take it and worry about the long-term later. They're going to lose Bledsoe anyway, so if they can use him to get over the top, then they should seriously consider it.
(yes, I know Turiaf plays C. They'd put Odom at C and Millsap at 4. They've shown willingness to go small this year. And, they know the Heat will go small.)
