NBA Final Four: Give It Up For the GMs

While watching the Conference Finals I suddenly realized how Finals-worthy the Front Offices for the remaining teams are.

Golden State nabs Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green in the Draft at much lower spots than now projected, plus scores Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala for peanuts. They fire Mark Jackson after a decent season and snatch Steve Kerr from Phil Jackson's waiting clutches. They also draft Harrison Barnes. All this draws in the required Free Agents.

Cleveland turns "The Decision" into multiple number one picks, securing Kyrie Irving and the assets to aquire Kevin Love, then picks up J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the Knicks for zilch when The King returns. They also steal Mathew Delladova and boldly grab Tristan Thompson (Their Udonis Haslem) higher than expected, securing the player they need/ have to have. Ditto Free Agents.

Toronto is basically handed Kyle Lowry when he starts butting heads with Kevin McHale in Houston ( how did they even get into the conversation?) then lures DeMarre Carroll from Atlanta (who ever thought he would leave?) and sneaks Bismack Biyambo out of Charlotte (Remember when Charlotte released Boris Diaw in a buyout and then the Next Week he was the starting Power Forward for the SAN ANTONIO SPURS! Again!) They also draft DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas, get Cory Joseph to come home, and never give up on Dewayne Casey.

OKC gets Enes Kanter from the Jazz for a song (sorry...) and the undervalued Dion Waiters from Cleveland for (who..?) they also draft and develop younger prototypes of their aging Glue Guys in Steven Adams (Kendrick Perkins) and Andre Roberson (Thabo Sefolosha), then hire Billy Donovan to increase Offensive Flow and Defensive Commitment and just happen to blow up in the Playoffs the summer before Kevin Durrant becomes a Free Agent. The also have Mo Cheeks.
