Migya, I wish you were right.
But perhaps (and only pehaps) you are looking at this differently than Bada and TMC. It's not that any of you necessarily value any of the prospective trade chips differently - for the sake of argument, lets say that each of you think that Monta, Curry, the pick, Chris Paul, and the rest of our guys contribute exactly the same value to their team. You agree on all their attributes, skills, limitations, flaws, upsides, character, etc.
The added variable that TMC and Bada are putting into any trade equation is this: the Warriors horrible reputation throughout the Association - both among the GMs, the players, and the media. To make a Bigtime move, we have to overpay (and so Bada/TMC ask, 'is it worth it?'. Migya, I think you look at it as though its just a talent for talent equation - which is an exericse more theoretical than realistic.
What I want to add to the conversation is this: if we want to make a Bigtime move, and we recognize we have to overpay - then lets make damn sure that this is the one and only time we do have to overpay. As I wrote in the trades section - you overpay for Chris Paul (in talent/potential), but then you don't have to overpay the next time, cause Paul = instant credibility. (eg, we overpaid for Maggs cause we had to if we wanted him to come here, but, in overpaying for Maggs, we reinforced our reputation rather than changed/improved it)
[mods - if you want to move this to the CP3 trades section, cool with me]

I Believe - that Curry and Monta are gonna have a lot of fun playing together for many years to come.
I Believe - we will be the most improved team in the league next year.
