Mo' Money Mo' Problems

By no means am I blaming Mikhail Prokhrov for this mess. 9-19 right now soon to be the worst team in the NBA. Forget about the specifics for now such as: Kidd sucking as a coach, decline of KG & Pierce, etc. (I could go on for days). We all pictured a perfect scenario when Proky bought the team. What more can we ask for then an owner who will spend at will? Clearly it's not his fault but the idea of it is actually a killer. The luxury tax is a blessing in disguise. By Billy King having the freedom to spend at will, there wasn't any restraint on spending big bucks on guys like Gerald Wallace, taking Joe Johnson's contract, $24 mil for Humphries. Then "going for it all" by trading 3 1st round picks for KG,Pierce, and Jet.

It's just a disaster. The organization messed up big time when they had the spotlight on them. Like I said earlier, I can't understand how anybody could really blame Prokhrov. I could see, if he was in it for the profit and not the team. He put his trust into Billy King and Billy went all out. It was a fantasy team, seeming as if there were no consequences. I'm not asking for a $50 million team salary, but if we had the limit this wouldn't be biting us in the butt so bad. Money only causes more problems in all situations in life.

Remember when a lot of us were crying on Christmas because we were 15-15? Yup, I'd kill for that right about now.

Happy Holidays
