That isn't to say those younger players don't have more upside right now, but, their current performance is not a significant upgrade over the perennial whipping boy.

Looking back at the past couple decades of performance ... expecting a point per game player is counting on a rarity. That is what people are actively cheering against a team they claim to be a fan of to get.
What is more likely? We get a decent center via the draft or via free agency/trade?
