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.
I’m not celebrating anything. We made that Kyrie at a time when we thought we were going to be so good that their was no way he would leave.
Last year was an utter **** show and danny screwed the pooch.
He should have moved Rozier last offseason at the very least and he should have offered a Jaylen Brown package for Kawhi Leonard. But it’s much easier to say that after the fact.
At the time most of the board thought we made the right moves.
Danny better do something compelling in the offseason though. Because if we just resign Terry ,I am going to lose my ****.
Yeah idk man.
I guess at this point, is we do everything looking at Tatum. He's the only player on our team with all-star potential. And now his contract is officially on the clock.
I doubt he's the type to get the QO and leave after his rookie year like Porzingis is... but everything we do has to be centered around making Tatum happy.
We officially have a roster full of players and not a single one of them is all-star level. That's typically a sign you need to be a bottom 5 team in the NBA and you need to do it fast or you're just delaying becoming that until after your main assets have left in free agency.
