Gotta separate the 2 "Joes". Joe has made some mistakes as a GM (understatement alert). But was also steering the ship in '04. That championship against the HOF'er stacked Lakers was unexpected and awesome! Joe had a plan and it worked. I'm willing to cut Joe some slack for the past few years. For me, his next few years will define his legacy as a GM. For the record, Joe is my all-time favorite player as well. All of the Rip Hamilton contract extensions, Darko drafts and CV free-agent signings in the world couldn't change that.
