I dunno. Paul George was just as much of a sure thing to leave OKC for the Lakers, yet here we are. Kawhi is more likely to either stay a Raptor or go to the Clips than the Lakers.
What the heck happened with Brown not playing?
It could be a number reasons.
But one thing's for sure, Celts have too many players of the same kind.
That will not happen again next season when the Celts trade for AD.
Which will lead to a mediocre roster after AD leaves Boston after one season.
Will be interesting
Yes it will be. And you are right, sometimes these guys grow fond of their "one year rental" team. Just feels like a huge risk to destroy what has mostly been an extraordinary rebuild. It means something to me for our players to have some level of attachment to the Celtic tradition. I beleieve the guys we drafted and signed as free agents like being part of the Boston Celtics.
Agree with you there. Gordy, Al and our young guys (especially Smart) all seem to not want to play elsewhere. I think if DA believes we can win it all with this team - with the addition by subtraction of Morris and Rozier - then I hope he sticks with it. I've also grown very fond of JB this season, and now probably like him more than Tatum.
I've learned over the years that Danny knows far better than I do (me being critical of both trading down for Tatum and trading what I thought was going to be a chance for Luka Doncic in the BKN pick for Kyrie), so it's really just about waiting and seeing.
Playoffs can't come soon enough for me.
