People should not kid themselves. It was not Dumars but rather Hammond who was the brains behind the construction of the Pistons winning teams between 2000 and 2008. Then Hammond left and Dumars has made one horrible move after another starting with obtaining Iverson.
In the meantime Hammond took over the Bucks and started to raise up from the ashes a once very successful Bucks franchise. Last year they surprised most in the NBA world because almost all of the so called experts/pundits were under the false illusion that Dumars had constructed the Pistons 7 year running ECF teams. When in fact it was Hammond.
Hammond now using the same formula in Milwaukee that he used in Detroit continues to build the Bucks. He will resign Salmons and has has already added Maggette, CDR and D. Gooden giving up nothing in the process.
I look for the Bucks to become one the top teams in the EC year in and year out starting in 2010-11.
All you Raptors Republic readers who read this post can tell your friends that you knew about it before most of the basketball world.
