how can you say that it was a good trade???
what good came out of that trade?
aletha, no. Please. Just stop. Don't have migya repeat his whole verbatum about this ludacrous trade.
First he'll tell you how Mitch Richmond
was expendable. Yes. A 6-time All-Star is 'expendable'. Richmond
only went on to represent the Kings in 6 straight ASG's, winning a gold medal in 1996 on the 2nd Dream Team, and average 23.5 PPG for 7 years in Sacramento. Of course, miggy sees no reason as to why we'd want to hold onto that kind of player.
Then he'll let you know that Marciulionis 'replaced him'. In other words, Sarunas Marciulionis putting up 18 PPG, then 17 PPG the following year, and then finally disappearing off the face of the earth has made everyone forget about Mitch Richmond
. Hell, who would rather take 24 points over the next 7 years when you could take 17.5 points over the next 2?
Makes perfect sense again.
Finally, he'll tell you (with a straight face) that Billy Owens was a good player in Golden State. Since words cannot describe the sick feeling in my gut that I get every time migya claims Owens was an integral part of the Golden State roster, I give you Exhibit A (Billy Owens' career stats):
BILLY OWENS (1991-2001)
11.7 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 2.8 APG in 29.4 MPG.
If those numbers look familiar, its probably because Mike Dunleavy put up eerily similar numbers in the same time. Mike's career statline is as follows:
MIKE DUNLEAVY JR (2002-2006)
10.5 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 2.4 APG in 27.7 MPG.
There you have it. Billy Owens was Mike Dunleavy's superior by a rebound or two every 48 minutes. Other than that, they were exactly the same. Yet migya loves Billy Owens.
Trust me, aletha. What seems obvious to most is way over miggy's head here. He refuses to believe that, what most would call one of the Top 3 worst trades in Warrior History, was a bad move.
