These moves weren't about just getting better it was about putting a team out there that if it played well...had legit chances to win the title.
Not win regular season games or 1 round.
Our biggest weakness was/is containing the ball for our guards. Giving us Jameer/Calderon would only make that problem worse.
Would our offense be much better? Absolutely, but no way in hell a team starting Nelson or Calderon in the West is winning the title.
This has been title or bust for years and it will continue to be that until Dirk is gone.
Just the way it is.
So while the Rondo trade didn't work, it's not like sitting still would have made sense. And the trade won't hurt us next year at all.
The real killer was the Parsons signing.
