and you and the likes who are not off of Jim wagon are giving him full credit for the bynum, howard, and cp3 scenario but are telling the rest of us he shouldn't be blamed. I can't argue any further with Antoni hiring, but Brown hiring is pretty evident, I mean if you were in a 3 way equal partner and was in the process of hiring someone, are you gona take your partners word for it even though you WEREN'T there for the interview yourself? From all indication, Brown got offered the job on the stop right after the interview.
Where exactly did I give ANYONE full credit alone for any move? Pretty sure I've been 100% consistent in saying that any move (good or bad) should be viewed as a group decision by the combination of Mitch & Jim (as well as Dr. Buss until his passing).
The only exception made is when we hear multiple confirmed reports from reliable sources saying otherwise (a la Jim championing the "Draft Bynum" cause). It wasn't long ago that most everyone around here was bashing their heads against the wall because they believed Jim would never trade "his project Bynum" for Dwight Howard. When he did, there was quite a bit of euphoria here around 11 months ago. Injuries derailed what was thought to be a championship-contending season. Hard to blame Jim (or Mitch or anyone else) for bad luck there.
