Leggy is an aging mediocre talent with mediocre effort, and we sorely need an upgrade. Call it hate if you want, I call it wanting improvement.
On your #4: attempting to justify abruptly dumping someone you hate by pointing out a legit need for more skill and then suggesting that his removal is some kind of prerequisite to same is pretty transparent. The presence of a Legwand at #2C or #3C does not automatically preclude the possibility of getting a legit #1C, despite your fervent hopes.

On your #5: Is it or is it not relevant in the context of the usual vague accusations of his supposedly being a poor leader?

Seriously. All this is is "he was drafted #2 overall and he's not an All-Star, therefore he sucks and needs to go."
