[QUOTE]In Response to Re: 3 Ways to Do it : Al Jefferson is not even 6-10 with shoes on. http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Al-Jefferson-2979/links/
Eric Gordon is 6-3.25 with shoes on but only 6-2 without shoes http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Eric-Gordon-328/
1 inch in height difference also means a difference in wingspan, so 1 inch is more than 1 inch if you include other physical attributes like wingspan and reach. Please stop it, it's getting ridiculous. Heat fans have Lebron, Wade, and Bosh. Bulls fans have Rose. Thunder fans have Durant and Westbrook. Clipper fans now have CP3 and Blake Griffin. And us Celtic fans will brag about Eric Gordon and Al Jefferson? Really?

So Al Jefferson is the only player listed at 6'10" who is actually 6'9" and all the other players listed at that height like Perk and Amare must be a legit 6'10".
I have shown you how the OKC draft appraoch is not the one that works historically and it doesn't even pertain to where we are picking anyhow.
I have given you options that make us better now AND give us the cap space to persue DWill/Howard (Nash, Kaman, Gordon, Thompson while keeping the big 3)
I have given you options that make us very dangerous is '13 despite no superstars (Marion, Odom, Pierce, Okafor, Jack, the MLE, Big Al, Gordon)
you have countered with
"let's get Gasol and Mo Williams and see what happens"
"let's blow it up to make 5 selections in the draft between 8-22, its a deep draft so there is no way that fails"
I am confident I have researched and thought outside the box better in my options than yours and do not feel they are at all rediculous.
If Ainge feels he want to wait out the Heat players prime's with draft picks then fine...
he has to hit on ONE once in a generation star (Jordan, Hakeem, Duncan, Kobe, Dirk) or TWO all-stars (Ray/Pierce, Gasol/Odom, Pippen/Grant, Dumars/Rodman) and then have the cap space or trade assets to add a superstar or 1-2 other all-stars.
Do you see picks 8-22 in this years draft landing us that?
