For the record, at the trade deadline I believe we will be second in the east. ****, if Wade has some nagging injury we could be number one in the east! That doesn't mean we have the talent to actually win though. As I've stated before, this team cannot protect the rim, it will not win the rebound battle, and they don't have the superstars to make up for our deficiencies rebounding and defending.
I don't think you necessarily judge a team on how many wins they have. I mean that's a huge part of it, but you can evaluate the talent on whether they're good enough to actually beat a great team in a playoff series. No matter what this teams record is come the trade deadline? It absolutely will not change what will happen when they play Miami in the playoffs. They'll lose.
So yes I'd make a trade at the deadline if you could land someone else. Boston did it remember? Didn't necessarily work but they had a plan and went with it. They didn't feel they were good enough to win so they said screw our record we're going to try to make a move that can raise our teams potential.
