I recall him being on the DEN sidelines during playoffs...is it official/final?
Nothing official, just what played out this season and he will probably try to get another contract, but will probably end up in China.
Nuggets tried playing him during regular season, but loosing a step made him unable to get his shot up, while on defense he never was a positive player - he is simply unplayable now.
It's truly a shame he ended up this way and never had a chance to get the money honestly earned by his performance in Celtics jersey.
Boston showed they are merciless and it paid of for them nicely
Did it? They got 2 years of Kyrie, one of which he, too, was injured for the post-season, and this season he didn't take them very far and caused issues in the locker room. Now, there's a very good chance he leaves them and they'll have nothing to show for it.
I'm enjoying seeing that Ainge may have missed his window. They've still got a bright future with Tatum, Brown and even Smart. I personally think Smart will really come on later in his career, in his late 20's. Lowry/Billups-esque maybe. I don't know why, I just think he's got that competitive fire that won't let him quit. Could be way off.
