After puking all over myself, then beating my neighbors dog and crying to whomever will listen, I would pray I was having a bad dream.
Bottom line, only one player appears worth more than Jay WIlliams and that is Yao Ming. Even that is highly questionable.
If you had told me that we could have Jay Williams and Eddie Curry last year I would've traded Brand myself.
If we are going to settle for Dunleavy than take the trade for Odom and 8. That way, you get a bonafide Player (lots of baggage, plus a vet is something the team needs and Rose wants) and at 8, Krause gets to show off his "scouting" skills and take another player that would appear at this point to be only a fraction less than DONE-LEAVE_ME-OFF-YOUR-DRAFT-CARD.
I don't care how smart he is, who his dad is, he doesn't excite me one bit. I've come to dread draft day and the weeks after. I wish I could just enjoy the thought of the plater we selected staying with our team and not worrying about what kick to my system is coming from J.K.
Dunleavy will be a fine player who contributes to a team for many years....I just pray it's not as a Chicago Bull. If it is, we blew an opportunity to make us great by trade or by Jay.
We have our Center and PF for the next decade, getting our PG for the next decade seems fine with me. Then, working on JC to become a combo G for the next decade is even better. For that matter, I believe JWILL and Crawford could be our gaurd combo for the next 10 years.
Then grab Grizzard at 30 and we will have our sf for the next decade groomed by our sf of the next 4 years.
