But let's not forget the few blemishes:
-Butler trade (even though it eventually led to Gasol; but it was initially a bad trade)
Wait. That's not very fair.
You're saying that Luke's contract ended up being bad, but the saying it didn't matter what the Caron trade ended up being, because initially it was bad (which I agree with). Also, 71% of CL said they agreed with the Caron for Kwame trade because we soooo badly needed a big man at the time.
But Luke's signing was initially good -- no one complained about it, several people were happy about it (some ecstatic given he shot like 50% from 3pt range for half a season) as Luke posted a very respectable 11/5/4 as a starter.
You can't say one move was bad because initially it was bad, and the say the other move was bad because it ended up being bad. They were BOTH moves most of us supported when they were made.
