Ask your self a big question, why in the world did Joe Dumars (The Pistons GM) spend all that money last year when he could of got a good crop of players this year. Joe knew in 2009 that Wade, Bron, and Bosh was going to be playing together. Joe also knew guys like Dirk, Yao, and Gay would resign with their respected teams. He knew that then and spent the money in 2009 instead of waiting. Some will say well he could of got a shot at Amare, Boozer or Joe Johnson. Not in Joe D Mastermind. Joe knew that Amare would either be traded by Phoenix, or he would stay with the Suns or go back with his old coach in New York. Joe knew that he was not going to match all the money ATL or any other team was going to throw at Joe Johnson. Another reason why Joe D did not go at those second tier of players in this free agency class is because it would put a limit on the other players he would need to get to compliment Amare or Joe Johnson. Joe D just did not want Carlos Boozer, he had a chance to get him last year but well we will just leave it at that, he just did not want Boozer. So instead of looking like New Jersey who instead of getting any major superstar and just end up picking a bunch of ok talent. Joe D got 2 of the best players in the 09 market that would benefit his team in the future.
