I love Danny as much as the next guy and had faith in him during the rebuild. I still like our prospects and think a Finals appearance (or even championship) could occur this year with some good luck.
That said, two appearances in the Finals and one ring in 16 years does not impress me anymore unlike when that last number was 8 years...
If we do not make the Finals this year or next, we need to throw a ton of money at Ujiri if the opportunity presents itself and/or get the next wunderkind of MIT/Harvard/Stanford.
That said, we ought to re-sign Stevens to a 5-year extension pronto because there’s no way to upgrade him and, with a better GM, he would coach us to multiple championships.
Danny is a very good GM who is an all-time great trader and decent drafter, but he is below average at managing team chemistry and personnel relations (e.g., IT which possibly cost us AD). If this latest assembly does not change the status of the last piece, he’s going to be shown the door at the end of this season or next. We need at least a Finals appearance, save for if it is a loss to the Lakers, to maintain our supremacy.
