what a crappy trade for the NETS
shhh, dont say that too loud, the delusional Net fans might try to argue with you that two high draftpicks cant produce the amazing 15.9 points per game that Vince is putting up this year when he isn't busy sitting on the bench with injuries :lol: [/b][/quote]
2 high draft picks?? I love when Knick fans use loose facts to denigrade the Nets. Both picks are lottery protected picks first of all. Second of all, with a team of Camby, Carmelo, K-Mart, and Nene, even in the West, that won't be a high draft pick and Philly's pick is lottery protected for 2 seasons. Especially now in the NBA, high schoolers or European draft picks taken 15 and beyond can take years to develop and by the time they're good, they're free agents. The Nets traded a guy getting 6 minutes a game, a guy who hated being a Net, and a solid role player with 2 uncertain draft picks for a guy who could be Ken Griffey, Jr. or he could be a top 10 NBA player. On top of all that, the Nets still held onto the Clippers pick and that is the valuable one. Definately a good trade for the Nets.
