    Honestly, all of this talk for Al Horford ignores lots of facts:

    - he's not really a franchise-player-level guy, but a "second star"
    - he'll be expensive
    - between Jonas, Amir and PP, our big...

    Yes, that makes no sense whatsoever. Serge Ibaka is a top-20 player in the league. Even OKC isn't cheap enough to let him go for Amir and spare parts.

    As an aside, if we can't get Bebe (and it appears we're in a bidding war with other Euro teams trying to buy him out, although he wants to come here), we still shouldn't go after a veteran center. We...
