I've recently lost touch a bit with the GSoM world, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet or not.
I want to ask: What does the arrival of Bob Myers mean for the organization, and how long would one with knowledge of this man expect him to make an impact?
I understand that he is one of the more likable men in the association and is highly respected from player to president. Is he convincingly talented enough to pull in the likes of a DeAndre Jordan this off-season? Myers is Jordan's agent. Generally, players and agents share a pretty close relationship, particularly if the agent is good at what he does and has high character (Put's his players first).
To some degree, Jordan would be stupid to leave what is going on right now in Clipper land. He's got a front court mate who may very well own some MVP trophies in the near future, with support of other young talents such as Gordon, Aminu, and Bledsoe. Could Myers convince Lacob to act on behalf of DeAndre and make a push to snatch him from the Clip's roster?
The tandem of David Lee and DeAndre Jordan could be a very effective one, with optimal stopping power at the rim if Udoh were to come in and spell Lee at the 4. If Ellis continues to be our shooting guard, we need to add a big man who can both protect the rim and rebound. This is DeAndre. With Lee at the 4, we will need an Athletic 5 who finishes strong and mixes it up a bit with his size. This is also Jordan.
What do you think our chances are of realistically being a frontrunner in claiming the young center?
