Bill Simmons thinks we should have picked up Kirk Hinrich.

"Kirk Hinrich: Played so well on both ends that I'm now moving him into that Jason Terry/Mo Williams "We got overpaid and teams were afraid to trade for us, and maybe we let it affect us a little, but we remained talented, and as soon as our situations turned a little and our teams improved, we made a comeback; now everyone feels absolutely stupid for not trading for us when they could have had us for 40 cents on the dollar" group. Hinrich makes $10 million this season and $26.5 million total over the next three. That's not a fair price? How could the Blazers not make a run at him when they're trotting out that hideous combo of Steve Blake and Sergio Rodriguez? This bugs me." Ugh, Simmons' ignorance infuriates me. Steve Blake's post season: -averaging 11.4 points on 51% shooting (and 10-22 from beyond the arc) -6.4 assists on 1.0 turnovers during this post season. Kirk Hinrich's post season: -averaging 12.2 on 51% shooting (10-21 from beyond the arc) -2.2 assists on 1.2 turnovers. The argument/difference maker here could be Steve's horrible defense. We all know Brooks had an extraordinary first game. However, when looking at games 2-5, Brooks' stat line looks like this: -averaging 13 points on 39% shooting (6-17 from beyond the arc) -4.2 assists on 1 turnover. So really, how can Hinrich be the difference maker? Commiting more than $26M for comparable stats seems ridiculous.
