Yeah and guess what
Before Butler, the Wizards had been on a 10 yr playoff drought at that point
And okay, they played 4 seasons together
And they were huge for that city as far as identity and establishing a consistent winning playoff quality team
Who was Kwame Brown??
Even when trading away Kwame for Pau, the Lakers still gave away Marc who was an all star caliber center for them for about 5yrs, close to Pau level.
Yes, the Lakers trade pushed them over the top but they gave away about equal talent in the long run to a team that need pieces for the future.
