[QUOTE]LOL! Sorry man but you my friend have no clue what you're talking about. Do you realize we don't have a 10 game lead in the East. If we did your thoughts wouldn't be a problem. These are not panic moves. Get your head out the sand. These are just moves that need to be made. So it looks like they're going to bring Bradley up for tonights game. So Nate goes back to SG, Wafer goes to SF, BBD and Erden. Wafer on Wallace or Capt Jack tonight. As soon as PP gets in foul trouble or comes out the game, we're in trouble. Good luck scoring points with that lineup.

Important notice, everyone: I apologize to BiasLewis. he was right. I was wrong. I didn't realize that the standard for this year is that if we don't have a 10 game lead against the Heat, we must panic and make a trade. under that standard, its trade time!!!! Sorry, I was assuming in the beginning of the year that it would be a dogfight all year and that we'd win the East by only a few games (or maybe just one game)! Wow, I missed the memo that we have to win by 10 games!
Bias - you're not listening to SO many people who are telling you that staying pat OR picking someone up off waivers or off a buyout is a better solution. This approach is not always standing pat, but its not breaking up a good team, either. Even to pick up someone, we have to let someone go and that's expensive (Let JON go and we would carry a big contract AND have to add another contract, for example). We could try a lot of trades, but all of these guys are playing in a system and it just doesn't make sense to disrupt it after a full preseason of training and a half season of playing together.
But, its clear none of us can convince you not to panic. You wanted to do a trade all year and you've not backed off. Camby, Mikki Moore, Stackhouse, Battier, etc.....you've got posts going on so many trades you feel something HAS to be done. I don't. I respect your opinion and its time to stop debating with you because obviously, you won't be happy until Danny tears up the team and goes for change. I've never seen anyone so hell bent on changing a team that made it to the championship last year, lost by a few points in game seven, improved on last year's team with new additions, has the second best record this year, has the best record in the league against the top 10 teams, has a top 5 choice for 6th man of the year (who you wanted to trade for an old guy who has a big contract and got injured), and is picked by most announcers and analysts to be a finals team.
Wow, man. Could you possibly just chill out and stop worrying so much? Love the team that's doing so well, please.
