Look at what a nightmare the Knicks were 3 years ago.....Walsh made so many unpopular moves. And like switching on a light, BAM all the sudden we were in great positioning for melo, Amare, tyson, Kidd, felton, etc.....Now we are awesome, and still set to spend in the future. Alderson s doing the exact same thing without a salary cap.
Agreed but baseball is different and more than one piece needs to be acquired. There is also much more random variation in baseball so what might look great on paper does not always work out(Red Sox, Angels, etc. come to mind)
