Will not concentrate on a few other. Young teams and packages they will have to offer. That Lakers pick with Lebron and now Ingram our is looking pretty good. They will have trouble winning another game if Lebrons minutes and games are slashed as much as they say it will be.
    He's definitely out for the season. They're talking a couple of months at least. And it could be just a one off and never happen again. BUT, it could happen again, and his career could be over. Is it worth that risk when there are other options available?

    No. I'd be saying the same if it was Tatum.

    There's a reason Chris Bosh got medically cleared to play but his own doctors, and still nobody has signed him. This is dangerous.
    Watching Pelicans games is what Georges Bataille meant by limit experiences.

    It’s hurtful from a trade point of view. But you still need to approach it from a point of strength. If the Celtics want Davis they have to pay. We can still keep him and they will never get him. And you need to bargain from that.

    It sucks in a couple ways. 1- we can’t flip injured player (Ingram and Ball) along with value their value going down. 2- Boston will see this lower value and drop their offering. Either way it looks like we may get a lot less than we were expecting.

    I don't actually think that's true, by the way. I think the introduction of the Nets as a competitor (remember they reportedly make an offer before the deadline) sort of sits as a baseline below which nothing can drop, and something like Allen, Kurucs, and the Nets 1st is a solid enough deal to mean that Boston and NYC can't afford to try and rob us.

    Good thing we got Randle instead of Ingram. Acquiring Randle was one of Demps better moves. It would have been really bad if we had traded AD for Ingram. As for Ingram man this is not good but I feel he still can make it. I think he returns next season.

    This needs to be mentioned more. As much as the "trade AD before the deadline incase he gets injured" crowd balked at the idea of keeping him and the risk of it, we never really mentioned the possibility of traded players being injured or career threatening conditions.

    This adds quite a bit more credence to waiting until the summer to trade AD. Now with the news of Lonzo being shut down for the remainder of the season we'd have been looking at a pretty bad trade package when the top two pieces of it aren't healthy.
