[quote]claiming that we could have had jrue for less is just flat out calling dell incompetent and a bad negotiator. [/quote]
That's a bit extreme IMO. Even the great GMs can get the worse end of a trade or make a bad move. Doesn't mean we need to label them as incompetent or bad, unless it is a ...

I don't at all think he sucks at negotiating, but possibly too quick to pull the trigger (and of course that could have been highly influenced by win now imperatives).
Edit: I do think he could (potentially) have a bad negotiation/trade without us having to label him as a bad negotiator...

There's no way of knowing, it's all just armchair speculation, although speculation based on recent league trends and the Sixers' tanking desires.
And I agree that Dell is not a pushover in negotiations. But that doesn't mean we can't question the (perceived/potential) value given up in his move....

Exactly. What bothers me about the trade is that giving up those 2 firsts did not seem necessary, regardless of the quality of player each of those picks turns out to be.
A lot of the defense of the trade tends to be some version of "Holiday's impact will (probably) be greater than the impact of ...

Would you qualify Pitt's overall acting performance/delivery in this scene as good or bad (if you had to pick one)?
My personal take is that while there are some strong moments in the scene for him,...

I always found Zack's "it looks like my score is going to help me score" line in the SAT episode to be quite out of place in the series. It's the first time any of the characters acknowledge that they are looking to frick.
His casual attitude toward scoring here could suggest that he and Kelly (or...

[quote]The entire undertone to the movie is that Dottie's amazing, but her heart isn't in the game. She wants family, kids, etc.
Kit, on the other hand, isn't as good but wants nothing more than to play her arse off.
The movie is more about the sibling rivalry between Dottie and Kit ra...
