I covered this on Friday in my WWW, but I needed to talk it out some more. I won’t be disappointed if the Browns stand pat and just take Myles Garrett, but I’ve been thinking a lot about strategy versus practitioners. A lot of the reasoning for not trading down is due to the Browns under previous management making bad selections. How much should that stinging history impact our analysis of existing scenarios and options? In essence, if you have bad management, that doesn’t negate good strategy even if they botch it.
Also, I discuss DeMarcus Cousins getting traded away from Sacramento for nothing. Kyrie Irving and LeBron James represented Cleveland in the All-Star game, nothing really happened, and that’s alright.
