2018 Award Winner
Good thing I’m not arguing for a third rebuild under DL.It's not Hood or Burks. It's telling Millsap to take a hike so Lindsey can do a half-*** rebuild. He had ONE top-5 pick. If you're going to do a rebuild, do it proper. Get multiple high picks, you know, in case you happen to waste 5 first round picks on PG's and STILL don't have a decent one.
It's keeping payroll at the bottom of the league, while spouting nonsense about financial flexibility YEAR AFTER YEAR. And then bringing in JJ and Fat Boris in a futile attempt to placate your star player. Based on Lindsey's failure to date, Hayward would have been foolish to stay. Ainge had shown he was willing to spend money to build a team. Dennis never did. Even this summer, what did Lindsey do with the MLE? Again, refused to spend it. Plenty of players signed 1 year deals.
How many teams have been able to make trades because they had a pipeline of solid, young players? Dennis has Rudy and Donovan. And maybe Joe would have decent value (like a late 1st to a contender). Beyond that...nada. Lindsey brings in jetsam and flotsam. But he's a master hypnotist. Who else could fool so many of you that the Jazz have this wonderful development program? Jazz can make all-stars out of scrubs. They have the formula that no other team in the league has.
But wait, he'll certainly make a move once the GS dynasty has run it's course. Or is that after Houston no longer has Harden and CP3. I know...it's after Giannis retires, Maybe THEN the 3rd rebuild will be complete and Lindsey will decide Utah can spend money to build a better team.
But sure, let’s make more unsubstantiated arguments.
It’s now or never. What part of that did you not understand?
