On the Celtics front: Kryrie is gone, but the ego driven rooks still remain. Marcus may need to take the leadership mantle. I wonder if Ainge can retain all these rookies when Stevens' weakness is being exposed -- cant hold the locker room together and failing to keep egos in check.

They are really going to miss their front court.

My takeaway from this is that while the f'ing media would have you to believe that the Knicks are the SAME OLD KNICKS- the TRUTH is that we have a lot of good young players. It's not as dark as they'd have you to believe

If the Kawhi decision wasn’t contingent upon it, that Paul George trade was the most lopsided trade ever.

Nah I'm good. We don't have a team like the Clippers to go all in and trade youth/picks.

Right?! We too could have gotten all of our assets pillaged but without Kawhi! Where do I sign up?!

it's why i asked if kawhi would have came here with pg. okc was able to leverage the clippers into basically paying for both pg & kawhi because they couldn't get one with out the other. is that what is being suggested ? they we had the chance to make that happen ?

to match the clippers offer would be 3 unprotected 1sts and 2 pick swaps from us. the mavs picks. rj or mitch.
that's just to match. to beat it we might have to give more.

I don't think we would have had a shot. It seems like they were focused on going home to LA or Kawhi staying in Toronto.

Getting PG would have been way too risky... What's to say Kawhi wouldn't still go Clippers and just recruit some other player like Beal or Westbrook?

then why would this even come up ? pg went to management after talking to kawhi and said trade me to the clippers. why call us ? perhaps we were the fall back option for them if the clippers couldn't put together the deal. or this is just bs.

I'm thinking it's just BS. We cancelled the meeting with Kawhi. I would assume that at the very best it was a longshot and we were mainly being used as leverage for the Clippers to get the deal done...
