How does me saying I dont mind them trading a very inefficient MCW mean that I am ok with trading Noel or Embiid? I dont know enough about them to make that claim. What I do know is what MCW is. And that is a very inefficient pg. His inflated stats on this horrible team will dictate they need to overpay the guy.
Plain and simple, I dont think MCW is a very good pg. Decent stats but hurts the team in other ways so it diminishes those stats. AND they got the Lakers pick which will eventually be a good one. That is why I am OK with them dealing him. You are jumping to conclusions when you say I would be OK with them dealing NOel or Embiid. I never said that. I am talking about MCW and I think they didnt lose much dealing him esp with the good picks coming back. You are completely overrating him and staring at his stats.
To answer your question about the lottery. Why would I have a problem with a team rebuilding the way they are? The NBA allows it, so why be mad at them? Be mad at the NBA and their flawed lottery system.
You mentioned "very inefficient" twice, huh.
Attempts to points ratio, maybe.
But how many PGs right now is averaging 7.4 assists, 6 rebs and 1 steal?
yes, you mentioned empty or misleading stats but still, if his teammates sucked big time, how exactly can you pile up assists?
Again, Im not saying he is a great player but come one man, how many picks do you really need?
Im angry at the Sixers bec they have found a loophole and they are really abusing it.
Reminds me of that city treasurer here in Southern California who gave himself pay raises when no one bothered to make rules about it bec most Gov't workers before were patriots who love this country.
While like 80% of the teams are spending atleast 55 mil, Sixers' payroll is 30 million. Never bothered to get good free agents or experienced coaching staff etc.
Yes, the league should adjust and make better rules, but no system is perfect, just like the current playoff system where bad teams like the Nets get to the postseason.
