Celtics Trading Kemba Walker to OKC

Did a single person predict us getting the better end of the whole Kemba situation?

I always thought we made the best move, was shocked to see the amount of hate given when the sign and trade for Terry happened.  I guess the hate was more towards the amount we gave Terry rather than Kemba leaving.  But there were very few people here who did think we came out on the best side of the situation, including myself.  Outside of this, basically everyone in the national media was trashing us.

Okc wants to move him as well, they just wanted the pick. Maybe they'll buy out his contract. I'd take him back to back up ball. I wanted no part of a max deal with kemba but I was pissed we spent all that money on Terry when we should have been clearing up cap

Terry is on a steal of a deal at $18m right now.. he has overplayed his contract IMO.. I broke down his numbers compared to other star SGs around the league and his numbers held up well..

P.George = $35.5m
Thompson = $35.4m
Booker = $29m
McCollum = $29m
Beal = $29m
J.Brown = $24m
Lavine = $19.5m

First off, he is set for life financially…good for him

and rozier has been more than we could ever hoped he would be

Kemba needs to be some where that he is the main cog

but as somebody else said. I think his knees are gone…he’s not a 40 min a game guy anymore

 Bump some of the old threads, I believe I did, but can not recall my wording. I dont follow as much as past yesrs, just never was a big Kemba supporter. Petty sure i said rozier would be the better player and hated giving up picks too. So glad no max for Kemba and glad kemba got got paid as well, hes one of the good guys.

Mike, remember all those people saying you couldn't run a team or pick players?!

Where they at???Michael Jordan Reaction GIF

Still the worst owner in sports, Mitch has done a GREAT great great job and Mike gets credit for hiring him.

That's huge and comes from learning. He signed off on letting Kemba walk. I was mad about that. It ended up being the best move. Gotta give credit where credit is due. The team image, uniforms, atmosphere at the arena, all better because of MJ.

I've been to many old Hornets games and Bob Johnson Bobcats games, when MJ took over the arena became more of a party atmosphere every game win or lose.

I'm giving MJ credit for what the Hornets are now, much more flashy, court and all, now more firepower than ever with a real GM and a good up and coming coach who is getting better. Miles Bridges, LaMelo, good decisions.

His biggest problems have been 1) Rich Cho 2) hanging on to Rich Cho for way too long.

    • Tepper could certainly do that without worrying about the cost, but I believe it would be at least a season too soon.  Especially, for an owner that kept Rivera and Hurney around as long as he did.  I see Rhule getting 3 seasons minimum before Tepper begins to get impatient. Darnold was a clearance aisle special in comparison to what some teams are willing to give up for a franchise QB.  If Sam crashes and burns, Rhule will likely get at least one more bite of the apple before being dispatched by Dave.  
    • I'm one to give us a reset on the back to back winning season narrative.  This is a new regime with a new owner.  The days of Fox and Rivera are gone and so should the whining about back to back winning seasons. If Rhule and Co. come out and have a winning season I won't be crying about waiting until 2023 for another winning season.  I believe we'll continue that success. If we start 4-0 It will give this team some great confidence for the rest of the season.   IMO it all lies on our O-Line and Darnold.  If the O-line gels together and Darnold limits the mistakes we'll score enough points to win.   Our defense is going to keep us in games and might even win one or two. 
    • I happen to enjoy listening to 89.  His takes are usually pretty brutal but accurate.  I think this is a next step for him and he'll move into the booth full time.  Hopefully for the Panthers. He is and always will be a Panther.   He may have had some wounds from being let go and he exacted his revenge on us.  Quite brutally in fact. His heart has softened and he is where he belongs. He'll be our first drafted HOFer.
