It was already going to be a brutal/killer week for me IRL and a tiring one (first of the semester).
Then we find out Davis wants out at horrible timing (before deadline), then predictably see he wants to go to the Lakers (or Knicks). He also apparently only views Boston as a "rental option" according to reports (even from Shams) so that's not encouraging.
Then to make it worse, now there's legitimate concern about Kyrie's future here. I personally still think he'll stay here but I'm definitely a little less confident than before. But the fact that there's even a 1% chance that he leaves the C's for the Lakers just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Idk guys. Idk. Hopefully Ainge has a plan and/or they've had internal discussions with Kyrie and everything's good there, otherwise while not acquiring Davis wouldn't be so bad, losing Kyrie would actually be unless you think Wannamaker/Smart/Brown can replace him as the star PG, or if you're confident we can draft a future PG with the Kings Pick (since we won't really have cap space to acquire another star FA regardless). I think that's another reason Ainge will keep Rozier, as a Plan B to quickly re-sign if Kyrie does go to the Knicks.
Hopefully in the coming days and weeks we hear more encouraging news but yeah today felt like a buzzkill. I had amazing Thai food for lunch and couldn't even fully enjoy it lol. I remain optimistic things will work out, but man a lot has changed in just days it seems
And I think this perfectly sums up the week for us C's fans...
