Okay there is my rant. Personally I would trade Buff if we could get true value but I don't think we could. At least going by the majority of the feedback from other fan bases on the main boards anytime his name comes up in a trade proposal. But on the other hand I rather like him and if he found gym and went once in awhile and paid more attention to defense he does have the talent to dominate.
I think what a lot of people (including myself) are saying here is that there was some encouraging (albeit slow) progress last year and if it continues, Byfuglien could round into a dominant player. If he comes into the season in better shape that would be a fantastic sign. Too early to give up on a guy like this just yet IMHO.
