I like Ted and I think his plan in theory is solid. The problem is the young players we have decided to go with are, for the most part, terrible. They may have some talent sure but there are too many knuckleheads in the group. When you throw out nothing but a bunch of kids you have a much better chance of being the Clippers the last 20 years then you are of being the Thunder.
This team needs to consolidate some of it's youth and make trades like the Celtics did to get Allen and Pierce or the Clippers did to get Paul.
