I dont see it. I was just there last week in WBurg which is supposedly awesome. It wasnt fantastic by any measure I am familiar with. Overcrowded. Expensive. Traffic up the ass...
Well you shouldn't drive there so traffic shouldn't be an issue. And the expensive component is irrelevant to millionaire athletes.

The Nets have the leverage in this if the Cetls need their cooperation to get Al. They can ask and maybe they get more than just the Milwaukee pick.
I’d assume they would have both figured out before agreeing but maybe not.

Why would you win as the man, and then go to carry LeBron's bag? Go to LAC if you want, but not there
We had this same discussion when KD went to the Warriors. Great players just like playing with other great players, that should be clear at this point in the NBA.

Because he wants to win again? Perhaps he likes Lebron or AD or both? The allure of the Lakers? Maybe he hates Jerry West? Who the fuck knows, but there are literally hundreds of reasons why he may want to go to the Lakers over the Clippers

I suppose Kawhi reaching out to KD would be somewhat consistent with him then deciding to go play with the Lakers, unfortunately---wants to be with other great players.

So odd from the one guy who just proved you can win a title without any other great players, but he's a unique dude

Then we have this to contemplate:


Source close to Horford says that even after all the Celtics' cap gymnastics, he will not be winding up back in Boston.

Perhaps bringing Al back for 4 years is not a good idea. Maybe this opens up another avenue for another player to join the Celtics? Ha, at this point I don't know squat. Things are moving way too fast.
