I kind of enjoy this stuff actually, I have been a fan since 75 or so and as much as I love the good times, the bad times are fun too. One can watch a game just for the enjoyment of it, and not freak out every second about whether they win or they don't, and I love watching the young guys develop.
No arguments with that. The biggest shortcoming in the Big-3 era was the inability to put up a supporting cast around the stars. Looks like Danny is loading up enough shots to not run into that again. I don't see a 3-year rebuild though. Either he reloads next year or we have to play the draft dice and hope that he makes great picks.
Look, I'd love for us to be relevant fast, but you need chance, circumstance and mistakes being made by other GM's to make that happen...that's alot to hope for and you can't plan for it....it may take 3 years to get the stars to align just right to pull it off....
Looks like we are both saying that there is no definite path to guaranteed success and much chance is in play. And I am not engaging in wishful thinking.
I think that there is legitimate opportunity for Danny to look to reload next year and he should position himself to take advantage if an opportunity presents itself. Where will he be able to get to? Probably a top echelon team. Perhaps not a sure shot. But then it takes a lot of luck to get to the sure shot stage.
Otherwise, my crystal ball gets very murky. If that does not happen, the rebuild will last longer than 3 years.
