^105% but since I agree with your points I'll let it slide
I think a lot of people forget D'Antoni's constant "once we get Nash back" excuse...He lived off that one and it did nothing for us. I thought Brown needed to go, but not for D'Antoni to be his replacement. I would have almost had Brown stay, but have the FO urge him to remove the Princeton O. Still though like you said, his practice length is an issue, don't know how we would've solved that. We likely still run our guys to the ground.
Nash was the worst decision, IMO. No idea why we gave him the full $9M. If he took less money to be here, we might have gotten away with a lesser offer. Even if we owed him $6M instead of $9M, that would have been a blessing. Plus 4 draft picks? Come on....we didn't trade for a guy in his prime
