No, you said that if we swapped DCs with the same roster, results are the same. Development starts with team culture, through conditioning, down to position coaches. Lots more involved than just the DC fella...

What about player development?
And your offensive scheme does not emphasize ball control, and until it does, you will never win anything. ...

[quote]No I didn't. You're saying the cost is more nuanced than most people get, I'm saying the value we got back is more nuanced as well and goes beyond Asik's on court value. [/quote]

We are a far way from 5 top players. We need another star if we want to compete with the teams that have more than one already. ...

You can't have a conversation about Asik without consideration of what we gave up for him, and what it will cost to keep him.
Folks on this board seem to think that 1st round picks aren't worth much, because they have no inherent guarantees of the quality of player you can draft. Well, these pick...
