Time for a Reality Check on Darko/Kahn

I don't think that the Darko signing should be included in the nonsense contract catagories (like what Gay got). after all, there were some who were suggesting, just a few months ago that it would take 8-10m per year to sign him, Kahn signed him for just 5.

While darko may not be the next great center, his salary does seem to be in line with fringe starting centers, and he is better then any other center optiions we could get during FA. really the only other option at Center for us was Run DMC, and while he might have a higher ceiling he is unlikely to be dramaticaly better then Darko this year. (better offensively most likely, but unlikely to be as good at D, and definetly a worse passer, and I was firmly in the boat of drafting cousins).

this team is, right now, much better then last years team. all last year we were B*tching and moaning about how poor our wing play was. Kahn new it too and he addressed it in this years draft. even if the choices were not the greatest choices, there is at least a rhym to them, and it is time we stopped acting like there isn't.  This years squade was never going to make the playoffs no matter who we drafted, even if we had lucked into Evan Turner, but at least we will be better then last year, without giving up the chance to get even better in the following year..
