I like KP. I love KP. I've posted before how intersted I am in his secret algorithm of assessing talent. He's the reason why I love the Blazers.
But look, can we all agree--please--to stop with the following comments on every diary that's trying to raise discussion:
- "Trust in KP."
- KP has a plan and he knows what he's doing.
- KP knows more than you do.
- Just wait X-yrs and see what KP does.
- KP knows who to draft and who to play for.
Look, it's probably all true. It's at least mostly all true. But we're here to talk about the game and the team. We're here to discuss each other's opinions. Having to read "just trust KP" over and over again is not only really, really boring but it's also really, really unhelpful. You're just writing noise.
And on the flip side, KP is probably not infallible. As Exhibit A: I give you George Lucas.
Star Wars idolaters to this day defend the atrocities of the Star Wars "prequels" and the "genius" of George Lucas. Do you really want to turn into someone like: a George Lucas defender? If KP messes up as badly as George Lucas, are you going to your grave defending his decisions?
There's a great quote from a guy when someone was getting after him for changing his mind. He responded: "When the facts change, then I change my opinion. What is it that you do, sir?"
We're here to discuss facts and adjust our opinions... not listen to the KP Heavenly Choir.
