Reasons to hate this interview are:
- The lie that goes - coaching and ownership have done everything possible to win (except not fill out a 15 man roster, spend money on free agents, make midseason trades, pay for a real coach, OR get scouts and use the D League to our advantage)
- I always wanted to be in Atlanta (which never was said until the $124M was put on the table)
- This wasn't in the interview, but having Joe Johnson making the 2nd most in the entire NBA is really making me sick right now.
- And this one takes the cake
Q. Your agent said you planned to recruit other players. Any ideas on the guys you’d like to come play with you?
A. “(Laughs). We have to go out and see what is out there. Honestly, I think we have the team now we can win with. That’s no question. The last two years we have averaged 50 wins. We all know it’s time to step up and take it to the next level. I think with the team we’ve got right now we can do that.”
And I thought being a Knicks fan was gonna be the most depressing position to be in. At least they have a clue and a hope (Carmelo in 2011) and cap space...
BTW, LeBron did what any 25 year old would do in that position. Get paid big money and go to South Beach and win titles. Forget what they are saying today - win titles, LBJ and this all goes away. Lose and this will be just what you've been getting in Cleveland. It's really a no brainer.
