You gotta understand - as usual, MJ must do it the organic way - that always takes longer then being gifted AD or KD like bigger markets get.. so it's easy to call MJ an idiot when you know he'll never acquire a guy like AD and will have to draft such a player.. but he'll persevere and end up on top, because that's what he does
Then why draft Kemba in the first place then?
Why draft Malik Monk?
Like what DMavs said,if you don't want to pay Kemba, why not trade him for someone now or any future picks?
