Even I would no longer dare suggest trading Timelord. Come on. When it comes to bigs, thereís Jokic, Embiid and then, yep, thereís Timelord. Heís that good. Heís surpassed KAT and AD, as far as Iím concerned. Anybody who watches our games can see how dominant our D is with him when heís healthy compared to when heís out. You literally do not trade him unless somehow Jokic or Embiid became available (their D is not comparable, but overall they are better and at the margin we would be better with them compared to Timelord). You just do not.
What the team ought to do is spend millions giving Timelord the best care and nutrition team possible. Heck, pay Tom Brady whatever it takes to get him to talk to Timelord for a couple hours about how itís done. Whatever it takes to get the guy conditioned and ready to stay on the court. And let him stay off the court the remainder of calendar year 2022. Give him a ton of time and resources to become 100% such that he can stay 100%. People wanna talk about a Big 3, well, Timelord is positioned to be that true number two to JT. Defensive player of the year. All-NBA. Those could be in the cards for this talented young man and weíve got him secured on a bargain contract for four years. Brilliant, Brad! In Brad we trust.
