This was for sure a wild week for Team TOPH. It was clearly not my best week, logging over 100 minutes more than the opponent and only winning 5-3. But, a win's a win and at this point I'll take it, giving me some momentum for next week when the real changes take place.
It was a busy, busy week for the GM. It took three days of negotiating, but a trade was pulled off in the end, and I think I'm going to like it.
Blockbuster Trade in Starzz02:
Team Players Receives: David Lee, Russell Westbrook, and Danilo Gallinari
Team TOPH Receives: Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Jason Terry
I'm set with rebounds, but I needed more 3's. Between Love and Terry, I should be alright. Everything else was essentially a wash. Plus, I needed to do something. Things weren't going well, the mood in the locker room was pretty crappy, and a shakeup was certainly in order. We'll see how it works out.
- Trade Mentioned Above
- Added Leandro Barbosa, Dropped Anthony Morrow
- Added O.J. Mayo, Dropped Leandro Barbosa
- Added Luke Ridnour, Dropped Eric Gordon (Worst $29 I've Ever Spent)
- Added Jodie Meeks, Dropped Luke Ridnour
- Added Jordan Farmar, Dropped Jodie Meeks
It really was a busy week. Had to piece together some form of a team.
