Yes it was. It was a fire sale in terms of players. Evidently you have never been to an everything must go at a Jewelry store or furniture store going out of business. They don't typically give you any real discount until the very end.That wasn't a "fire sale". That term indicates they gave up any and all assets at a discount, they got full value for KD from us despite him being a depreciating asset who is 34 and can't stay healthy. The Suns gave up a haul indicating he was healthy and younger. He's 34, the window is cracked open for this year and next despite being on the hook for 3 more seasons of his salary. He's not on a sweet deal that's movable like CP3 either. If he breaks down we'll be lucky to get expirings in return and we'll still be forking over draft picks to the Nets.
You are missing the point entirely though. The point being made is that in order for your team to give up on it's current direction, means you miserably failed. Team's don't start over out of the goodness of their hearts. Something went wrong in usually horrible fashion to get to that point. Not to mention the Nets front office history shouldn't give you any "feels" about what they can do in the future with any of those assets let along keeping Bridges.
That is the point.
