Alright guys, now that I've won the LMA bargain buster auction, I can explain, not that I need to, but maybe to at least curb the mockery temporarily. First off and foremost, I WILL NOT BE TRADING LMA, so those if you with a much cheaper Lebron or Durant, just forget it, and no, I won't take your second best player too. Believe it or not I do have a method to my madness and it is a 4-year plan. For the next 4 year I will be operating with a 50M budget, which is why I have tried my best to dump veterans and stockpile rookies. Some of these rookies might be busts, but if I can get lucky on two or three of them, I will be in great shape just when they are hitting their primes, so in 4-5 years I shoukd have a pretty interesting core with LMA's bird rights in hand. Secondly, I've decided to go all in on a punt-BLK strategy with Lee and Ersan, and one that is strong in FT%, so ideally, this strategy doesn't work without LMA. I managed to clear up a whole whack of cap space dealing Pau, Scola, Gay, Vasquez, and McGee, so I went into the auction deciding to win Aldridge whatever the cost may be. The truth is my team doesn't work without him so as expensive as he was (thank yiu So/Tex), the player matters more to me than the salary so I will make it work.I'd like to think that for Pau Gasol and Rudy Gay's combined 25M, I made a pretty good upgrade. Since I am a new player, I will be tue first to entre our new "no max" landscape. You can call it a cautionary tale, but I'm pretty sure in 2-3 years some of you will be here with me.
