After two wins we are suddenly "clicking"... a mediocre team tends to win half their games.  We could get blown out in our next game and everyone who is saying we are "clicking" will be right back on the "trade everyone!" panic mobile.   I like to cut out the middle man and stay the course with facts... I don't care about a couple random wins.  This team has problems.  I hope we can fix them through trades. 

Danny once made a major trade after a 5 game win streak.  Luckily he's not as wishywashy as Celtic fans.  I feel the same way about this team today as I did last week... we have too many backup shooting guards and not enough starting big men.  Two wins isn't going to change Danny's goal.

I haven't changed my mind based on our current two game win streak, and I didn't change my mind after our recent embarrassing four game losing streak.  I've never thought that this team's ceiling is mediocrity. 

And, I'm not going to panic and call to "trade everyone!"  This is, and was always, a good team.  I'm hoping that we are finally starting to click.  I don't expect us to get the through the rest of the regular season without some more poor moments.  I'm willing to accept those as part of a grueling 82 game season.  We'll be right there when it matters, though.

One win or one loss shouldn't change whether or not to make a trade.

Because right or wrong wins increase the trade value of some and we could still use a trade, 2 wins doesn't change that

SGs are fine, it's the PF redundancy that is the problem, so if you want a big, your priority has to be to trade a big, like Bass. If a SG is needed to make the deal happen, then you do it. But the problem is not having too many SGs, the problem is having too many PFs without centers, and PFs in particular that can't play with each other.

Having too many SGs would only be a problem if we didn't have roster spaces available to add players... but we do.
