Lets start with saying this season is over and there is no point in Kobe coming back to worsen his injury. Second, I pray that Steve Nash retires because he is truly useless with this team. Injuries have plagued him and he is not the man from the Suns 5 years ago. Finally, we need to adjust our head coach position. We need a hybrid of defense and offense not one or the other. Also a coach who could handle marquee players such as a Kobe Bryant, Kevin Love, or Kevin Durant. A few coaches come to mind, Stan Van Gundy, Bryan Scott, and George Karl. With these things in effect, it can help our team prosper. We are in last place in the West and 4th worst overall in the league. With our remanding schedule I can honestly say we would win 10 more games, putting us at 28-54. Based off previous statistics and we stay in 4th worst we would have anywhere from a 6-12 percent chance of getting the first overall pick in the 2014 draft. Who would you draft with the first overall pick?
If we land a top 3 pick my first goal would be to get on the phone with both Danny Ainge and Flip Saunders. If you catch my drift, I want to inquire about receiving Rondo and Kevin Love in some sort. Getting a high draft is nothing but hype because Anthony Bennet, Derrick Williams, Marvin Williams, and Tristan Thompson were all top 4 picks in previous drafts and are nothing more than role players. We need transcendent talent and Rajon Rondo and Kevin Love and provide that. With Rondo ability to be a court captain, play defense and be the quarterback shows his value. Kevin Love the best power forward in the game, can post, rebound, pass, pick and pop and hit the three. Just imagine he and Rondo's chemistry. Which bring me to this point. How to get a deal like this done with only one first round pick? Well, we have a valuable Pau Gasol who can command a first round pick. I would seriously consider the Phoenix Suns deal. Emeka Okafor and the Wizards 1st round for Pau. Sounds pretty good doesn't it? It does considering we are headed nowhere, but the abyss this season anyway. We need to dismantle it all. The only players currently on the roster I would bring back are Jordan Farmar, Swaggy P(absolutely love this guy), Jordan Hill and Kobe. Alot of you are saying, but where is Kendall Marshall? Assuming we call Danny Ainge, Marshall would be apart of the Rondo trade along with a 2014 first round pick. If all this fails, I would absolutely sit threw another bad season because and one year deals because the 2015 free agent class is phenomenal. If Mitch is looking in that direction I would not be angry with him because we could just sign Rondo and Love. After those signings we would need to find personnel that fits. Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, Gerald Green, Landry Fields and Amir Johnson are all great role players who could be potential targets. By the 2015-2016 season we will be ready to compete for championship and returning to our glory.
