It would suck if Danny traded for someone "better" and end up swapping the win streak for a losing one.
Well, the question is (and its a difficult one), what exactly does the win streak mean?
Does it mean that this team is suddenly a legit championship contender? Or does it mean that they are on a hot streak, and while most teams are turning it down a few notches in January, the C's are turning it up. And so we are seeing the C's play at the top of their potential, while other teams are underperforming. But the C's may not have that extra gear come April and May...or maybe they will.
This is why I don't envy Danny. But it is also why I think Danny tends to ignore how the team is playing in the moment, and try to look at the roster as a whole. He is not easily swayed by a losing streak, just like he is not easily swayed by a winning streak, because he knows, unless that is happening in the playoffs, it is not necessarily telling of the teams overall potential.
