This what this guy said in a recent radio interview here in Cleveland. Here you have LeBron publically acknowledging he wants help RIGHT NOW, and here you have this guy saying sh*t like this.
Have ever heard such a thing?
The type of picks he's reluctant to trade, are what, upper to mid-20's picks?
WHO THE F*CK IS RELUCTANT TO TRADE AWAY THOSE TYPES OF PICKS WHEN THE STAR PLAYER IS PUSHING FOR IMMEDIATE HELP?
And it's not only the absurdity of not wanting to trade the pick, but also the fact this guy hasn't proven he can draft quality guys at that slot given the opportunity. Dude drafts Shannon Brown two years ago and
NEVER gave him a chance.
So what's the point?
And what makes it funnier is here you have Ferry making comments like these two months after extending a coach who is notorious for not playing young players.
What Ferry, you think you're going to draft a quality young player with the 21st pick and he's going to see the court two years from the date LeBron has a chance to walk in '10?
Uhhhhh, hell no.
You see, these are all the signs of a organization pressing. You can see clear as day. What a shame it is that an ENTIRE franchise is resting on the shoulders of a 23-year old. Ferry and company have done nothing that would lead even the most optimistic of fans feeling comfortable with the future of the Cleveland Cavaliers. And the fact by the year of 2010, he would have had 5 years to organize a long-term winning plan around a top-3 player is just plain silly.
Seriously, who would die for an opportunity like that?
FIVE F*CKING YEARS!!! Two open windows with 20+ mill in cap room. Four 1st round draft picks. Five years of having Top-10 team revenue. Five years of playing in a relatively 'weaker' conference. Three years of your best player playing on a rookie salary slot.
^^^^ read that again. In the summer of '10, Ferry would have had all that to work with, and yet, up till now no one would be surprised is LeBron walked for less money at that point.
That's how bad it's been, and can possibly be for the next two years.
Welcome to the mind of a Cleveland Cavalier fan. It's so fun.
