DA's made a lot of mistakes. His biggest? He's been DYING to break up the Big 3 and he did it too early. This summer will be exciting as us C's fan wil be able to sit back, watch, and hopefully figure out why?
I will say this, though. I think he's been coming around. I like most of what DA has done recently:
I like how we traded a coach for a draft pick- something you don't see too often.
I like Sullinger, I liked Melo when we drafted him.
I LOVE Jeff Green. I was glad when we traded Perk for him. -*Of course I realize I'm the minority on this one.
I'm happy to see Marshon Brooks come back.
I think Brad Stevens is the perfect coach for next season.
And last but not least, I like how DA traded up to get KO. I think KO will have a nice NBA career. And I don't think we would have been able to draft him at 16.
I DON'T like Lee or Bass. Lee was a bust. Bass is just an extra body. *Keep in mind that we got Lee after exhausting every possible option for getting Mayo who I think would have been a nice fit last season.
Once the dust settles I think we'll have an exciting team next season which is set-up well for the next few drafts. Without a decent Center, the C's won't make the playoffs and I'm sure at the end of next season we'll be rooting for them to lose games and improve our lottery chances.
But give DA credit, he's having a good summer. We've now got both exciting young players and a bundle of future of draft picks at our disposal. Regardless of who's on the floor next year, it still takes time to build chemistry. Guys like Rondo, Brooks, Green, Sullinger are important as they WANT to be here.
