I love how Philly got Bynum

While we just sat back and did nothing. Because hey, "we're good." That's Paxson's mentality.

Always remember when people try to say, "well, Howard didn't want to play here, and no other good player has ever been available to Paxson," that Philly has a lot less to deal than us and got Bynum.

Bynum and Rose would have made me MORE Than happy not to get Dwight Howard. But alas, instead of Bynum we still have the Boozer/Deng mediocrity-fest as our #2.

Re: I love how Philly got Bynum

Philly gave up an All Star player. They are gambling that Bynum will sign an extension with them, when the new CBA makes it extremely unlikely that he does so without testing the market. This move could easily turn out to be a disaster for the Sixers.

Here come the excuses and apologies.

We had an all star player I would have been HAPPY to give up for Bynum. Luol Deng - who frankly SUCKS relative to what Bynum brings to the championship level of basketball.

Best part, if you don't re-sign Bynum, what are you afraid of? That without Deng you're not going to be able to sign anyone to play with Derrick Rose? Are we going to become the 2002 Bulls if we trade for Bynum and he signs elsewhere?

I'm sorry, but in what world is Deng on par with Iggy?

It could be that the other teams involved share your opinions on Deng (or at least the negative opinions).

Bingo. Deng sucks, until he's a good enough chip to land you Bynum.

Deng does suck for the money and a #2 role. So does iguodala. Am I missing something? Did Philly give wade up? Or was it crappy Iggy?

Also this was not a straight up trade. It was as part of a four team deal. Easier than a trade for bynum straight up

Knock it off. Jesus.


If dealing Deng could have made you a part of this deal, then I'm all for it.

Honesty?

Iggy is a better chip than Deng right now. Arguably, he's a better player when both are healthy, and Deng is not healthy. Deng's shooting percentage has suffered since his injury, and he's thinking of skipping surgery. My guess would be that to get in on this deal, you've got to do better than Deng. As I said before, if I'm wrong about that and you could have dealt Deng to land Bynum, then yes, you definitely, obviously, always make that move.

Re: I love how Philly got Bynum

Denver would have to want Deng for Chicago to replace Philly. Iggy is a much better transition player than Deng and the Nuggets are pretty much the highest paced team in the league. Deng just doesn't fit nearly as well with what they do.
