Houston just got much better, adding Artest for relatively nothing. It’s amazing how the good team’s in the West keep adding pieces at Costco prices. The Lakers (Gasol), New Orleans (Posey), Utah (Korver) and now Houston have all improved their team significantly without giving much. San Antonio would have been on this list if the Warriors didn’t throw big money at Maggette.
While the Warriors are re-tooling, the conference elite is getting even better. While the Warriors are developing for the future, many of the teams they are chasing are nabbing proven players to win now.
Which side of the fence would you rather be on? Would you rather swoop up the Ron Artest or Shawn Marion types, playing to win now? Or do you like the build for the future strategy?
