I wasn't in favor of either, I wanted to develop out team for the long run, versus a short championship stint, just like I am now.
Keep the picks and we potentially have Noah in 2007 and Steph in 2009 with the picks we gave up, right?
Now with Pierce, Jefferson, Gomes, Noah, Steph, Green, Perk, etc., that would have been a long run team.
This is the reason, I'm in the #JKJB camp. Add a vet or two into the mix (Dano, Al), and build around RWill, JT, JB as the big three.
