Yes, why study history when we can find out next year that D-Mo has cancer or he gets caught murdering his GF. We don't call basketball games in the first 24 minutes. Too many unknown unknowns to interpret "history" as it is unfolding. If you want to look at the D-Mo non-deal in a few years, that may be instructive but today, I don't believe we can derive much from it. YMMV.
