odds are by that theory we're going to be bickering anyway. if we need two other guys beside Duncan/Splitter, that means we have to replace Diaw, Bonner, and Blair with someone better than Diaw to make a difference and that's a pipe dream. we are running a shorter rotation and playing better defense with everyone knowing their role, so we have the best chance with this squad to win a title than making a trade or two and giving up valuable pieces for one in return.
