However, I'm not sure how out of sync it really is.
Heck, when I heard TFC was targetting Forlan, and then actually went and picked up Bradley and Defoe, I became a Lieweke believer. Hell, who would have thought such a thing was possible. Then, to bring DeRosario back.....brilliant. Again, what the heck can't Tim do?
Apparently Tim used Drake extensively to lure Dafoe, and even had Lebron chat with Jermaine's mother. Now, I don't think Lebron will be chatting with KD's mother about Toronto, but I'm sure Kev be getting some VP invites and back-stage passes to Drake affairs.
Now, KD is christian and about as clean as they come NBA-wise. Maybe that's why Landry is still around (that, and of course, his untradeable contract) Still, I'm sure Tim will exploit any and every opportunity to lure a premier star like KD, that's just Tim's way. Why not play the "Toronto is a great home for people of faith" card.
FInally, certain things get burned into someone's psyche when they are young. I still can't help but think of the 80's Oilers when I see and Edmonton jersey. It's taken years of ineptitude to squander the sheen of greatness that once surrounded that organisation. KD was an impressionalbe kid when vinsanity was full swing. I'm sure he still harbours some latent excitement about Toronto from those days. If Tim can re-kindle that, get Kevin to see that we have a winning contender...just insert superstar to beat Miami, stoke a vision of championship glory in Toronto.....then I don't see it as a stretch to get KD in 2016.
Tim's the guy to do it, and Masai is the guy to make it happen....
