And if Lebron and AD held any of the other free agents in high enough esteem, it could very well be someone else (Butler, Kemba, Dlo).
Whoever it is, I agree that the decision has already been made.
Kemba and Butler don't move the needle this much.
I don't think Klay would ever give that kind of assurance... I don't think either side has any interest in him leaving GSW.
I also don't know if Kyrie giving his assurance would trigger something like this... But maybe...
KD would, but I just think with the timing of all this and the other rumors, it's most likely Kawhi.
Jimmy just came the closest to beating Kawhi if anyone.
Jimmy also has made every team no matter the coach or players or fit work and playoff ready. His biggest praising point is he took Wiggins and Towns to the playoffs out west. Lebron cant even say he’s accomplished that out west.
I agree with you on Kemba unless if he giving you a discount. And I know that Klay, KD, and Kawhi are all better. That said I wouldn’t write off the fact that Jimmy could walk in here and change a couple things
- You get a secondary ball handler and playmaker
- You get a second primary closer
- You get a real vocal and loud locker room which AD thrives under
- Lebron has someone who can tell him the **** he doesn’t want to hear like Wade could
Jimmy to me seems like the obvious fit. He’s what you hoped Ingram could possibly one day be impact and leadership wise.
I agree. Jimmy Butler is the personality we need. A badass infusion. Klay is the player we need.
Edit: but if that left knee is projected to heal, you have to go all in for the best player in the game, the finals mvp.
