Hi. I've been a poster here in the past but it has been a few years ago. I enjoy reading the boards here. So to my question. I was reading an Article in RATS today about the 2000 Finals and Jalen Rose mentioned something in the article to the effect of 'We should have kept that team together for another year or two' and it got me to thinking; Why didn't they go for one or two more years with that team? Reggie played at a high level for another 5 years, mark another 2, dale a few more, perkins played another year, and Jalen and Travis were still young. The only guy that I know that retired was Rik Smits after that year. I bet he could have been talked into staying if the team was going to make another 1 or two year run at it. I recall that that they wanted to go with a youth movement, but perhaps Walsh pulled the trigger too soon. I do remember a lot of it. I was 18 at the time, but some of it has escaped my memory. Let me know what you think. Thanks
