Well Brown and Tatum better show what they are made. The pecking order has them having much more prominent roles. No more excuses.
He just traded a ton for a rental in Irving.
Outside of the #8 nothing else mattered in that package.
So # 8 and "nothing else mattered" for Irving
vs a deal of
MEM pick, Tatum, Smart for AD.
Considering AD is a superior offensive player, and a far superior defender and rebounder.
You know what. IT doesn't **** matter. The point is Ainge just traded for a rental point blank.
And with that "huge" Nets trade, it's resulted in trading for one all-star in Irving. Who.Was.A.Rental
If your'e going to say that you that in "retrospective" it wasn't much. Well of course it wasn't IT NEVER IS, youth never pans out. You either have an MVP or you don't. You almost never lose a trade where the main piece is picks.
But whatever. Stop nitkpicking on every little thing that isn't making an excuse to celebrate.
