Just answer one simple question, which you still haven't done:
Pick your coach. Any coach you want. Does Marbury, Crawford and Zach Randolph with no draft picks and no ability to add meaningful free agents ever win a title?
Let me expand:
The point being, assuming you can even assemble a rational thought or know the first thing about the NBA, the answer is no. Marbury can't find an NBA job now, Crawford is a 6th man on the 5th best team in the East, Z-Bo is thriving (though Memphis got blown out last night) with a legit center on his side. If the answer is "No", then the way to get to what you, I and everyone else wants is to get to was to rebuild. And the way to rebuild was to get under the cap, and not be strained by exorbitant salaries and have no ability to maneuver the roster to create a winner.
(Also, if you actually read that "The Oatmeal" site I linked, you wouldn't say I was proving your point. Because it eviscerated your line of thinking.)
