Well, if I was just humiliated because of selfish play from a guy 4 games in a row ending our season, and the fans keep pouring their love for that same guy to leave his dark shadow over the team for 5 more years...ultimately being the rest of Al's career...I definitely would send a big message to the front office myself.

And I will bet it goes right over Danny's head.

So...I think we've seen the last of Al.

First off.

He isnt getting a 5 year deal anywhere.

2nd....4 games is not going to influence any professional athlete as opposed to multiple years worth of experience.

Trying to blame kyrie for Horford doing something intelligent for himself professionally is really reaching with an agenda of kyrie hate

I can only ask you read my first post one more time to see if you can see anything that remotely looks like reality and not hate.

Otherwise keep on with the pursuit of what is slowly destroying everything positive this team has. This team is a giant mess right now because of one guy that gives you 22 points a game on an island by himself.

Good luck.

Also people need to remember its a contract negotiation at the end of the day. Is this a way to opt out and work with Danny on a worthwhile contract

I still think Horford will opt-out and then re-up here for something around 3/60M (or 4/75M-ish).

Team is a mess because we havr no rebounding.

No defined roles

Cbs handled the hayward situation terribly.

Team forces al to play at a less effective position for him.

Team ran bad offensive schemes.

Team has entitled players (tatum, rozier)

And hayward absolutely sucked and was a negative in both ends for thr majority of the season.

But yeah...its the best players fault exclusively.

1000% Yes.

As I said in the other Horford thread, I would be fine giving Horford 3-4 years in the 18-20M AAV range. I think he'll opt-out and restructure here for more $$$, but also to help the team and its luxury tax implications a bit too.

Yeah, that sounds like Kyrie, Brad and Hayward need to go...something I been saying for a few months now.

Also Tatum and Rozier...along with JB, Smart and Al...were indeed entitled to atleast pick up where they left off last year... which was snatched away in training camp.

Oh, and you left the biggest one out...that rotten, pathetic defense they play.

As a fan of the NBA...their defense OFFENDS me, and because of the team-wide amateurish effort they give, I really wouldn't care who they got rid of at this point.

I kinda despise all of them for it.

Danny maybe should have chosen a defined path but instead tried to horde it all..... hoping for all the moving parts to adjust

in some ways probably can't blame Danny ....that he went all in and waited for the River card.... and hit a blank. Very close to a flush but no cigar

Agreed!  A restructure could also help the team in the trade market if Kyrie decides to walk.  The salary cap is expected to jump to $109 million next season.  Boston would be somewhere near $85 million in salary if Horford restructures to $20 million per year.  In turn, this would allow Ainge to make any deal without needing to send out much in salary.

Depends how much of a discount he is willing to take

If it might turn out like what happened with Pau Gasol a few summers ago, Id vote pass

Been saying this for some time. I think Horford likes Boston and will want to opt out and do like a 3 year, $55-60 million deal.

Part of the quote that Horford said in the OP was he hadn't even thought of leaving Boston. How, leaving Boston wasn't something he had even thought about turned into 50/50 he is leaving and it's because of Kyrie is baffling to me

He's 32

He'll be 33 at the start of next season, but that still doesn't make him "33 or 34"
I'm bitter.
