Some of Ratners initial investors were high ranking people at Goldman Sachs (a financial services company) and they were the ones pushing for all of the cost reductions. When they found out the NBA required a full disclosure of finances, they backed out and their money to purchase the team had to be replaced by money from all of the previous owners of the team.

Those were the *******s that ordered Thorn to sell the draft pick

OK, yea I was pissed when that happend.

And they tried to say "we dont see anyone who could help us here"

When thats bull, bc every GM has a few guys who he sees has potential.
I wish they would of at least traded it for a future pick.

That pick became Khryapa/Monia.

I think we would have taken one of them and left the other for the Blazers.

Either would have been a fine selection, as would have Martin, Beno or Sasha

Of course any of those picks still would have allowed the Nets to pick Petro

Warming up to Petro now are we?

Kevin Martin is a fine, fine player.
I was never anti-Petro. You're confusing my opinion of where you drafted in the fantasy draft with my opinions on the actual NBA Draft. In my mock draft I had him going #22.

What I liked about tonight's game is when I say again in the future that Kevin Martin is taylor made to play with Jason Kidd, people will know what I'm talking about.

I compared him to Kerry Kittles in the past, and that's still pretty valid.

And how about my boy Francisco Garcia? His game reminds me of Rip Hamilton.

That guy is smart, energetic, and a good scorer.

I always hear how he needs to put on some weight, but that never stopped Rip.

We are soon going to realize how much Twin means to us, our D needs him.

And the Giants will be in 2nd place in the NFC East

And gase prices are going to go up
And the Spurs will be good
And most of us are going to start making Clippers voodoo dolls

They coulda had Garcia but noooooooo his draft stock is too low. Meanwhile Garcia was arguably the better scorer, better shooter, better passer and better defender in college than the guy they picked at number 15

It's not like a low 1st round draft pick from a year ago would even be in the rotation now. ;)
Of course he would play, he would already have his season of barely playing out of the way ;)

Or won't it had made more sense to trade the pick for a future 1st and less cash?
