Outside of OKC what other teams has this strategy worked with? LA had to trade their young players to get Chris Paul. Boston traded their young players to get KG. these are teams who went with the young strategy and failed and decided to trade the young pieces for a superstar.
The Spurs didnt trade away Manu or Parker when they developed. These trade threads have everything to do with impatience. Fans are bored and want a trade to spice things up. And most of the trades are not good. One trade on here basically switched the jerseys of the Kings and the Hornets. Why on God's green earth would I want to be the Kings?
