quote:I should have put potential legit big 3. that was bad phrasing on my part.
That is the biggest miss-use of that term I have ever seen. In-between the 3, you have one all star appearance (not even a start). You are projecting off of pure potential and hoping that the most fragile player in the NBA doesn't get hurt again.

I think we are in a good place right now
That has nothing to do with you saying we have a big three.
It was very lucky and the chances of it happening again are small, but that's the only surefire way small market teams can compete.

Or they can make trades like Memphis did.

Anthony davis and winning the #1 pick was an extremely lucky occurrence. it's not likely to happen continuously and if we are that bad to get that low multiple times than we are far away from hoping to be good.
but there are a lot of extra factors involved and pretty much every one of them has to go right for us to just be in contention for top 6 in the west.
The top third of the western conference will be the judge of that.

We have Ryno, Jason Smith, and now Vasquez
A lot of things would have to go right for one player to force a 20 game swing.
