What's the absolute worst case scenario? O.k. maybe not the ABSOLUTE worst . . . which would be Proky being incarcerated by Putin, Ratner being the decision-making owner and the Rat then selling off every possible asset to line his grubby little pockets. Phew!! Not that absolute worst case scenario. But the hand-wringing, Dwight goes to the Lakers and Deron bolts for the Mavs. That one. Well, I for one don't believe for a second that Deron leaves, as long as Billy keeps him as de facto assistant GM and makes a good faith effort to sign some talent next summer. But if Deron bolts, and if Dwight signs somewhere else? So what!! We will have a ton of cap space. Hopefully, a healthy Brook Lopez. A new arena. A dymanic young scorer in Marshon Brooks. A really high draft pick (I'm thinking possible Anthony Davis). A second decent draft 1st round pick from Houston (I'm praying Billy can find a way to get us Michael Kidd-Gilchrest). And a ton of expiring contracts. Other than PG, we could roll out an exciting young line up of Marshon, Brook Lopez, Michael Kidd-Gilchrest and Anthony Davis. And still have a ton of cap space to acquire actual NBA level veteran talent.
So when all looks sad and gloomy. And the opposition is raining 3s. And Petro loses another rebound. And Am-miss and Egregious E are clanging 3 pointers. Just remember, tomorrow is always just a day awaaaaaaaay.
