Sadly we have arrived short of our goal and are now forced to reflect on what has happened and what we can do to change things for the next season. Clearly we will have to tweak several things with our philosophy and roster to adjust to what happened to us both early in the regular season and towards the end/playoff run. We probably have one more year left of EG. Rivers only stays if the market for him is dry. Why do we even have Faried on the roster if freaking 80 year old Nene is playing ahead of him? I'd like to see us make another run at Jimmy B. It's a long shot, but you've at least got to get into the same room as him at some point this summer.
I'll also throw this out there just for fun. I wonder if it would be at all possible for a sign and trade with the Charlotte Hornets for Kemba with CP3 and a future pick going back in return. Charlotte needs to get rid of Kemba and tank to finally turn the corner as a franchise, but they also can't let him walk for nothing. Here's where the home town hero Chris Paul comes to the rescue. He can still fill some seats with his star power and passing ability while grooming the young talent they'll acquire through the draft. He gets to play in front of his home town crowd every night while still probably not winning enough games to make the playoffs. Kemba comes to an immediate contender with James being the same age at the same place in their careers. Both are clearly able to take over a game late when the team needs it (something CP cannot do at this point). The money matches, etcetera etcetera.
Blow some holes in my scheme.
