In last night's postgame wrap-up, Michael Lee brought up a provocative point. The Warriors' Stephen Curry scorched the Wizards with 29 points, nine rebounds and five assists.
If you recall, Curry thought that the Wizards were going to take him with the 5th overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft before they shipped the pick to Minnesota for Randy Foye and Mike Miller. "That was definitely a spot that was on my radar," Curry said last season after his first game against the Wizards. ...
But whenever you see Curry, you have to take a step back and wonder, what if. As in, what if the Wizards had taken a different philosophy two years ago and decided to add some talented young players, in Curry and DeJuan Blair, to their veteran core instead of just getting two established players. They were able to recover and get Wall last summer, but would you rather just have Wall or some combination of Curry, Blair and a top five pick from the 2005 NBA draft....DeMarcus Cousins? Wesley Johnson? Just something to ponder.
What do you think? Should the Wizards have taken a different path?
