Wouldn’t it be ironic if one of our last pieces to one of the worst trade ever produces another one of one of the worst trades ever?
Ainge has passed the point of getting fair value. He will need to overpay in any trade. Even when we think he overpays, we come away impressed with his coup.
If he’s not Executive of the Year, I have no clue who could be. He overhauls the roster, returning just 4 from a conference finals team through two trades few have the cojones to even ponder, let alone pull the trigger on. Which means Stevens needs to be CotY, it should be the first of many. Doing what he has done since losing GH is simply incredible. /tangent
Don't forget the Phoenix/IT trade which was an offshoot of the Brooklyn trade and set up teh Irving trade.
The crazy thing is that, if Fultz does indeed turn out ot be a bust, not only did Danny achieve one of the most remarkable rebuilds of all time, but he also will have potentially damaged or destroyed three of our conference rivals in the process, Brooklyn, Philly, and Cleveland.
This is "There Will Be Blood"-level theft.
