Re: Trade: Cleveland and London

I agree that Akers would have been a good addition to Barry now. Might have underestimated him.
But Kilmartin will be a good 6th man in future seasons to provide scoring from the bench...not ideal I agree.

Re: Trade: Cleveland and London

Roturn I'd just like to point out that this isn't me trying to be harsh towards you, I think you've learned your lesson. You're new, it's inevitable that there will be bumps in the road. Can't expect you to immediately know proper market value for ever singe player in the league, so things like this happen.

The target audience I'm trying to drive the point home to is to the veteran GM's who defended the trade. It's bad, and it's continuing to look worse. Frankly, it will continue to look worse too as I'm sure next season Akers starts for Porn and then all of a sudden he's leading the league in blocks, scoring 12 points on 55%+, and averaging a double double (17 this season in only 26.1 mpg). Dude was 2nd Team All-D this season without playing starter minutes, he's going to average over a steal and well over 3.5 blocks at 35 MPG...if his ratings continue to grow he's going to be one of the better playmakers defensively at the center position.
