Just wanted to bring up this great thing you wrote in June '06 that proved to be completely true. Thank God for Kevin McHale!
2. Babcock, McHale, King. As much as we can be thankful for a GM like Danny, we can also be thankful that this trio are GM's of other teams. Babcock has been muddling and going in circles in Toronto for years. McHale has made one mistake after another and may have alienated his one big asset in KG by not bringing in enough talent to support him. Now Babcock has joined McHale to continue the downturn in Minny. Likewise, Billy King has made one dumb move after the other bringing in players who just don't seem to fit together.
What was also cool from looking through the archives was when the Miami Heat won the Finals in '06, you said Paul Pierce would be just like Antoine Walker in a year or 2 and win his own ring. Now if he can only get another 2 or 3.
