    Why? He was already halfway down the road to blowing things up and had the support of the fans and presumably of management. Where's the risk there? If you've already put the tank in motion, trading...

    Agreed, we're not going to see eye to eye.

    But I think the key here lies in that last bit; making a big play for an obvious superstar upgrade isn't in doubt - that's clearly the plan. But if he...
  3. I will not admit it. Trading Bargs was the...

    I will not admit it.

    Trading Bargs was the lowest risk move I can imagine. He was hated by the fan base and a trade for a second rounder would have been lauded just to get him off the roster. NOT...
  4. He also hasn't done anything to suggest that he...

    He also hasn't done anything to suggest that he IS willing to take a risk or gamble, which is the point. This narrative directly correlates again to how we talk about players; we wonder if certain...

    Chisholm DID write a piece that outlined what Masai has already done, used that as the basis to ask whether he's too cautious, and very clearly states that Ujiri has done a good job and made great...
  6. He might be correct that Ujiri hasn't to this...

    He might be correct that Ujiri hasn't to this point in his career made the kind of big risk/big reward move that might be required to take this franchise from perrenial 2nd round fodder to...
  7. I'm sorry, but a group collectively ignoring even...

    I'm sorry, but a group collectively ignoring even the possibility that Chisholm is correct despite the fact that a) they can't know what choices Ujiri has juggled because he doesn't divulge that...

    I would hardly call posing a what if question pre-emptively criticizing what he hasn't achieved.



    Well, you're right that there's a difference in basketball understanding there, because how...
  9. I'd say you're exactly right. But I take what I...

    I'd say you're exactly right. But I take what I read from any sports writer that way, because I've not read one yet that was completely objective. To me the point for a fan site like this isn't to...
  10. I would argue that being prepared and waiting for...

    I would argue that being prepared and waiting for an opportunity to arise is another way of saying that he's going to wait and see how things pan out (with 'things' being the lottery, free agency,...
  11. I actually agree that a lot of what Chisholm...

    I actually agree that a lot of what Chisholm states about how Ujiri has operated is incorrect or a half-truth. But that doesn't mean his conclusion is incorrect. I can tell you the sky is blue...
  12. I think the article's argument is dead on and the...

    I think the article's argument is dead on and the fact that it's touched a nerve just demonstrates the hyper-sensitivity of the fan base.

    All the article does is point out the obvious: that Ujiri...

    Some seriously impatient people on these forums!

    Ujiri seemingly has one goal right now: stock the team full of enough quality B and C tier players, tradeable assets and cheap reclamation...

    To me, when I think treadmill, I think of the Joe Johnson Hawks and the Kohl-era Bucks; teams that really didn't make much an effort to break the status quo. It's easy to mistake results for...

    I wouldn't be surprised if this opens the door for Amir to re-sign if they can get him at a reasonable rate. In general now Masai can sit back and poach off bargains to fill out the roster as other...

    Was listening to the Grantland post-draft podcast with Chad Ford and he talked about how development is sped up when players are allowed to simply go out and play through their mistakes. If JV had...

    Love what Ujiri did here.

    Frees up cap space to make a respectable offer to Lou Williams (who should fit perfectly beside Wright off the bench) and/or a 3 and D SF, while also putting another 1st...

    1. Ujiri lets someone else pay Lou Williams too much money.

    2. Casey is retained.

    3. Ujiri throws money first at Middleton, then at DeMarre Carroll, and after being turned down by both he...

    I'm gonna take the full on tank route just for fun. None of this will happen but it's fun to speculate and play armchair GM.

    Trade DeRozan and Vasquez to Utah for Exum and a couple of 2nd...

    Just throwing this out there, but re-tooling doesn't have to mean throwing the kitchen sink at one overpriced piece in order to salvage the current core. MU could still tinker with the roster,...

    I know it's easy to dream of tear-down scenarios when you're pissed off.

    My two favorites are
    1) Lowry for Exum, DeRozan and Patterson for Randle. Start next year with Exum, Ross, Caboclo,...

    I don't think the issue is with the roster, it's with the fans. The roster is exactly where you'd expect it to be if you removed the early season results; they're young and predictably inconsistent...

    I love the idea. If you could get him for fair market value, I'd say go for it. I think I read an ESPN piece that guestimated around 8 mill per year, and signing him to something this would look even...

    Weirdly enough though, making it to the finals in the east isn't far off from LeBron plus 1-2 genuinely great players plus bums equals title. And I think that's a big part of why the raps might be...

    I'm not so sure about that actually. There aren't too may teams in the league that can guarantee him max money, the chance to (kinda) win now and a chance to be a primary offensive cog. And there's...
