At the time that Nash was signed, there were reports that Jim Buss pushed for the deal more than Mitch did.
Maybe,...... But you still don't make the call or you do and don't act on the info? Mitch is the GM and he negotiates the deals that people above him want.
Buss may have wanted Nash but Mitch executed the trade.
So Mitch's boss tells him to get Nash, and Mitch is supposed to do what? Threaten to resign?
If it was Jim that was pushing for it, then I don't blame Mitch one bit.
You make sound as if you were in the office hearing this... If Mitch was told to go get Nash I'd hope to god he's also trying to find out if he's healthy by any and all means necessary. If not then he needs to resign IMHO.... that's his freaking job. If he had found that out and then went back to Jimmy with it we may not have this stone albatross around our neck.
Man.... there is no stink that can stick to Mitch it seems.... he's truly teflon on all bad decisions and everything that goes right is all him....
If everyone thinks Jimmy is such an idiot then he wouldn't know how to form a trade right?..... then who did decide that giving a 38 year old with a significant and long injury history a freaking guaranteed contract for 3 years? How many people have played at a 9 M level at the age of 40 in this league? Why no team option? Why not put Nash on the injury list so he can't play 10 games?
..... it's all his "boss" I guess.
