    Yet you continue to waste more of your precious "time" (I'm not so sure browsing an NBA fan forum is actually considered valuable time) by posting multiple times in this thread that you supposedly hate.

    Go go gadget bull$#*&

    Now, carry on.

    Either way, fishing for views through a misleading title is juvenile and annoying. Sorry you so strongly disagree.
    In all fairness to bean, how was the title misleading? You assumed it was Deron talking about the jazz but bean never even named the person speaking.

    This was discussed and your understanding was as incorrect then as it is now:

    Amnesty is a one-time deal. Teams can use it prior to any season under the current CBA, but once they’ve used it, it’s gone forever.

    SF - Harrison Barnes? (this year's pick - around #4? Possibly better if DWill wasn't playing?)
    PF - Derrick Favors
    C - Brook Lopez

    That's not a bad group to build on. Add in an All Star in the free agency and that's a team with a pretty bright future.

    And that's being pessimistic about last's year and this year's pick (Approx. #8 and #4).
    I looked at the Nets forum after this story was posted and I think the general opinion is that they traded Deron for Harris + Favors + Kanter all of whom they think are busts.

    There's a thing about these big market fans that are just so impatient, they seem to think that their owners can just throw money around and get any players they want. Youth movement? What youth movement?

    Reality check - once DWill is gone - you've got nothing left. NOTHINGGGGG....

    DW has a great point. The players get the majority of criticism when they become FAs, they are cast as traitors but when they get traded the fans and organization usually wash their dirty hands from the transactions. Loyalty is a one way street especially in the NBA.

    Well if DW was giving advice to King then he should stick to basketball because the Nets were idiots for giving up a top 3 protect number pick to get Gerald Wallace. Just imagine if the Nets were able to get MKG or Barnes then sign Dwight Howard in 2013 as a FA. plus their 2013 pick. Throw in Lopez and DW. Now that is a talent ed team. Now the Nets might end up with Gerald Wallace and Marshon Brooks as their main pieces.

    DW
    Brooks
    Barnes
    Howard
    Lopez

    Wallace/Morrow/Humphries off the bench.

    ...who did we get for Williams? A few mediocre players...who haven't won anything for us yet. Williams didn't win anything for us, either, although he did get us to the conference finals one year with his sidekick Boozer. Certainly if Williams leaves the Nets, which he most certainly will do if he's got any brains at all.....was definitely a bad trade for the Nets.

    LOL - and if they do manage to re-sign D-Will then they should strongly consider changing their name to the Brooklyn Dodgers - 'cause they'd sure dodge a bullet by doing that

    Maybe you shouldn't be juvenile by fishing for views through a misleading title then.

    I didn't intend the title to be misleading I just thought it was a funny quote. Also the thread was intended to high five KOC for keeping us fans out of this drama and giving us a bright future. But I guess that's not Jazz related......

    Also you guys move the thread after 3 pages? Pathetic.

    So if Deron leaves will that trade go down as one of the biggest rapings ever? I have to give KOC credit, I'm so glad were not in the Nets position. Ive never been more excited about a current Jazz team or their future.
    Poor Nets? What did they think might happen? It was very risky and looks like it probably won't pay off.
