What the frick kind of leverage do they think we have?
The possible insanity of the other GMs and/or owners is leverage.
Problem being that most of the GMs I could see us out-gambiting are the ones who have no assets and/or no cap room.
For example, I could see Mark Cuban going hard after Gordon if he misses out on Dwight this off-season. Problem being that Dallas' only assets are an aging Dirk, OJ Mayo with an expiring contract, and a likely high 1st that can't be traded until after they make the pick due to the Stepien Rule.
