It has to be not drafting a player right?
Drafting a player: no Beasleys or Blatches drafted. No impact players drafted but no bad players drafted.
Not trading a player: Ray for Mayo was out of his hands. Also, trading Ray might have meant KG, Pierce retiring.
Signing a player: JG was probably the worst one. But we were so far over the cap it didn't matter I believe. JO sucked but he was meant to be Shaq's backup.
Not signing a player: Tony Allen wanted a bigger role when we had Ray Allen. As for not signing better depth and free agents...we were paying scraps so we could only get scraps.
If we'd gotten players after Giddens or players after Jajuan Johnson, we'd have been in better shape.
We could have had one of Pekovic, Asik, DeAndre Jordan, Douglas Roberts, Dragic and one of Chandler Parsons, Marshon Brookes, Lavoy Allen, Jon Leuer.
But, as others have mentioned, gain some, lose some. We only missed out on a handful of players out of the 30, 40, 50 something viable players left on the board.
He has created one of the, if not the, best locker rooms in the league since 2007. This is not the beginning of the end but the beginning of the beginning. He turned the franchise around.
