We want solid, mature vets that don't have a salary, don't mind playing 0 minutes a night, and actually relish losing and teaching. But, wait, they have to be good players, else their teaching is good for nothing. Oh, and they can't take a roster spot either, because we might not be able to take advantage of every salary dump or roster spot clearing trade that becomes available. They certainly can't have PT, lest some imaginary lack of development happens. Winning/championship experience is a requirement, but God forbid they actually have the nerve to want to play for a winning team...
We want our young mid-first-round draft pick players to play great, mistake free basketball, win, AND be developed. Learning through experience should never come with mistakes and bad play. Not being an anomoly or a draft day steal is not acceptable. Giving maximum effort, day in and day out, even through a lack of results, is something everyone of us is born with, why not them?
We want to win and have high draft picks. We want to lose without establishing a losing culture.
We want a solid veteran big man to tie up 20% of our salary cap for the next five years.
We want a GM who can win championships without the requisite luxury tax penalty or superstar. A GM who tells the owner what the overall strategy is.
We want every trade to be a fleece job. And we want first dibbs to every beneficial trade that happens around the league.
What's wrong with this picture???
