Gasol for Kwame = Unacceptable from Paxson

Unacceptable.  I’m not in love with Pau Gasol, but Paxson let the Lakers pick him up for Kwame Brown and Jarvis Crittenton.   I know that Memphis was looking for cap relief and the Bulls didn’t really have that to offer, but Paxson had to be able to beat that deal.

How about Ben Gordon, Chris Duhon and Joakim Noah plus draft picks.  Tell me the Grizzlies don’t take that over Kwame, Crittenton and picks.  It still offers Memphis cap space, just one year later, if they don’t want to keep Gordon or Duhon.  If they tell Grodon they’re not re-signing him he could even leave this offseason and they’d get the space they’re looking for now.

Gasol wasn’t the ideal option for the Bulls, but he was better than anything else that’s going to be available and, the worst part, is he was easily attainable.  Now what?  Is something better going to come along this summer?  In 2010?  I know it won’t be, but this should have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for John Paxson.  Too many necessary trades never happened because he didn’t want to let go of players he drafted.  Reinsdorf needs to say goodbye to Pax today and get somebody else in here to run the show.  I had faith in Paxson for a long time, but letting this trade go through without even throwing his hat in is simply unacceptable.

When Paxson fired Skiles he knew he’d become the focal point of the team.  Now it’s Paxson’s turn to be held accountable.  Enough is enough.
