Mike McGraw's Mute Math*

*Not an endorsement of keytar, spiritunality, or anything else. It's too early to pass over an easy alliteration, and I was the captive audience for a particularly awful concert DVD at 3am.

McGraw sez "stand pat," and I agree with the exceptions of dumping Wallace, Nocioni, Adrian Griffin, and LaMarcus Aldridge Joe Smith. Gordon, Deng, Hinrich, Thomas, and Noah aren't worth trading at the moment. Obvious stuff, obviously.

I am starting to lean in the direction of unloading a heavy chunk of the bad season blame on Paxson's lap. Not because he couldn't get Garnett, Gasol, or Kobe, but for setting the team up for failure before the season even started. McGraw's blame percentages sare tough to quibble with, but I would replace his misguided assessment of the less experienced players as non-contributors with preseason trade smoke.

HE SAYS BECAUSE BEN GORDON HAD A BETTER YEAR LAST YEAR THAN JOE HAD IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER, AND BEN IS MUCH YOUNGER.......


OKAY......

LAMARCUS IS HAVING A BETTER YEAR THIS YEAR THAN ANY YEAR JOE HAS HAD IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER, AND LAMARCUS IS MUCH YOUNGER.

PLUS HE GIVES YOU A LOWPOST PRESENCE THAT WE DESPERATELY NEED, IS A TRUE POWER FORWARD THAT WE DESPERATELY NEED (TYRUS JUST ISNT, PERIOD), HAS TONS OF UPSIDE, IS MUCH BETTER IN THE POST ON OFFENSE WHICH OPENS UP EVERYTHING FOR ALL OF OUR OTHER TALENTED PLAYERS ON THE FLOOR, AND HIS VERSATILITY CAN BE USED AS A STRENGTH IN MANY WAYS.


GET REAL.

I WOULD TRADE BEN GORDON, TYRUS THOMAS AND JOE SMITH FOR LAMARCUS ALDRIDGE WITHOUT A SECOND OF HESITATION RIGHT NOW. ALL 3 OF THEM.
