I'm surprised no one else has seen some comparisions.:surprised:

Apparently this time the logistics are in reverse. Trading Defense for Offense. How many of you remember how upset the local media and pretty much everybody got with Donnie for for trading Det for Derrick? It was a HUGE deal. This strikes me as the same type deal and I think it's near impossible to guage on paper. :tsk:

This strikes me as a team chemistry thing. I don't have an opinion either way. I think Ron is absolutely a phenominal prescense on the court. I think he really impacts the flow of the game.

But maybe we need someone whose impact is a little more focused in one area of the game-Peja's scoring?:hmm:

I know Ron can get selfish with the ball, but he is a glue guy. He can bring the ball up, post guys up, score and play D. Detlef had the same type of impact (minus the D).

So way back when, we traded a utility guy for a specialist. It looks like we may be doing it again.

This is just like back in 94? 95? Whenever it was that we traded Det for Derrick. Back then I thought getting Derrick was a mistake. I was wrong. This time I have no strong opinion either way, but the parallels in the past trade and this potential one are striking. Am I the only one that sees this/feels that way?

Peja and Ron are far superior players to Det and Derrick.

The analogy still holds though. It is similar in the way Skaut is describing.

How about Dampier-Mullin for a comparison?

``A small forward,'' said Indiana general manager Donnie Walsh, ``that can take us to another level. What we were missing was a three (small forward) who could spread the floor and make plays.''
