Not sure if this has been posted anywhere by Net Income or anyone else but take a look at what Billy King (who inherited a 12-70 team as well as newly signed contracts when he came in and took over as GM) turned into Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace:
No. 3 Overall Draft Pick
No. 6 Overall Draft Pick
*Eventually another 1st round draft pick (came from GS, still top-7 portected)
*Eventually 2 2nd round draft picks (Houston 1st round pick that is protected for two more years and then turns into two #2's)
Take a look at that list of totally underwhelming talent; he turned all of that "stuff" into 3 studs who have made a combined 10 all-star teams and are going to be wearing our hopefully awesome black and white BROOKLYN NETS jerseys in just a few months!
No, Billy has not been perfect, BUT he has done a damn good job considering the heap of sh!t beneath his feet when he was given this job.....
Happy 4th of July to NETSNATION and THANK YOU BILLY KING!!!!
