1. It has been, and will ALWAYS be about signability in this organization. [Together with the drafting weakness and developmental weakness and th utter lack of an international scouting dept, this is one of the reasons why the Jackson trade was stupid.]
2. A 360 degree turn means that you're still heading the same direction as before the turn. A 180 degree turn means that you're heading in the opposite direction after the turn. Hence, the bolded part of your previous post was confusing. Can you clarify this geometric reference?
