Seems to work. Whatever it is, I'd like to know, that's for sure.
Kevin Pritchard knows. He used to work in that front office.
Jeffrey Ma of ProTrade is a consultant to Pritchard and the Trail Blazers, and emailed me this very interesting sentence:
I remember sitting with Kevin Pritchard before he was KP, the GM of the Trail Blazers, and he explained the Spurs' mantra to me: Get three superstars and then fill the roster with guys willing to go through a wall to win.
Pretty simple, right? I like it.
And if you're a Boston fan, you have to love it.
