How about this: Build responsibly so you don't have to irresponsibly trade high picks and young talent away for years in a desperate attempt to shore up holes.
That sounds smarter, doesn't it?
obviously if you are contending for a playoff spot and you dont trade your 1st, 2nd round picks for rentals you arent trying. and then its perfectly fine to trade the player you gave up a 1st for for 1/2 of what you paid to get said player.
Many of us knew and saw this coming years ago. like I said earlier. they blew up a core that wasnt far removed from a Cup Final. We all know why it happened. if things were taken care of earlier they would not of had to make those deals.
