Gut the team and future picks for one player? i know he a top 5 player but is it worth it?
Probably. Teams that win titles usually have top-5 players.
Thatís the thing, there are only so many top-5 players in this league while there are dozens of good/great players.
This isnít a matter or trading four quarters for a dollar, sometimes you have to give $1.75 worth of change to get that crispy bill.
Thereís a larger gap from top-5 to top-25 then there is top-50 to top-100.
If you have the chance to acquire a top-5, perennial MVP candidate such as AD (while keeping your core intact), you have to seriously consider it, even if you are giving up some legit, superstar talent and depleting depth. You can rebuild a bench, you canít just pluck a generational talent out of nowhere whenever you want.
