It's funny how once you offer up Randolph as a possible trade possibility you get blasted by every Warrior fan on this site. Don't get me wrong, I love Randolph. However, I can't see him being much better than Lamar Odom. Odom is one of my favorite players. He's one of the most, if not the most, versatile players in the league and Randolph is a mirror image of him. But Odom is not a superstar. And thats one of the things we are missing. Im sorry, but I cannot wait 3-5 more years for Randolph to develop into a superstar.
Chris Bosh, on the other hand, is a superstar. He is 10 x better than Randolph is RIGHT NOW. I know that statement is gonna piss a lot of people off, but its true. Everybody's argument about Bosh is that we would be renting him for only 1 year. If you look at my trade proposal, it included Maggette. Giving that contract to the Raptors will allow the Warriors to offer Bosh a big deal after 1 season. Also, why don't any of you guys have any faith that Bosh would want to stay in the Bay? If we make the playoffs next season with him, then offer him a huge deal, I don't see why he would want to leave.
Im sick of this "we are building for the future" crap. We have been building for 15 f***kin years!! We need to win NOW and Bosh will make us at least a second round playoff team. Yes I know it's all about championships, but when your favorite team only makes the playoffs once in 15 years, making the playoffs quenches the thirst a little bit...or a lot. Jus look how crazy the Bay was when we made it to the playoffs 2 years ago.
Bottom line: Everybody's love affair with Randolph is getting in the way of what's really important....WINNING.
