The unicorn has his positives, but he is not what Boston needed, immediately anyway. Yes Al Horford is aging and may retire and Robert Williams is physically unable to play two games in a row consistently, but the obvious acquisition should have been a Point Guard. The ridiculousness of this trade is that Boston could have waited a couple more hours and gotten him as a free agent. A center could have waited until deeper into the offseason.

Look, Memphis have one of the better rosters in the Western Conference and they have only gotten better. This deal is like when Arsenal sold Cesc Fabregas to Chelsea and then witnessed him become a champion before challenging properly for a title, a travesty.

Can I say as well the absolutely imbecilic job that Brad Stevens is doing as a GM? My theory; jealousy. Jealousy of Ime Udoka. Jealousy that Ime did in 10 months what Brad couldn’t do in six years, and lets be honest, fired him for having sex. The Celtics clearly needed a guard as first priority after witnessing a possibly historic comeback from 3-0 down get wiped out due to Jaylen Brown taking threes like it was a Black Friday sale and turning the ball over like a snowball down Mt. Everest.
But no, lets trade the ONLY competent ball handler in the team. Now that Beal is gone, Lillard is seemingly going to the 76ers, who will the Celtics get?
Well, I am 18 years old currently undergoing my Bachelors of Science in Media and communications. I'm currently in my first semester and I would like to be a sports analyst in the future. I am also from Jamaica. I would like to work at one of the biggest sports companies in the world (ESPN/SKY/BT) but everyone needs a start and I would love it if you were to give me that start.
