I would love to have him, but NYK has no reason to move him right now. KP has no leverage.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

This is the frustrating thing about the draft lottery ... seeing exciting, likable young players have their best years wasted by crappy organizations.

Porzingis, Davis, Towns, Cousins ... these guys should be the next wave of mega stars in the league, but they're only seen in next-day highlights because their teams are so poorly run.
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

Agree with everything except for Towns being on this list. Minny isn't perfect but I wouldn't classify them as poorly run.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

  • Boston Celtics= Championships, nothing less.
Where does it say he may not return to NY?
"We are lucky we have a very patient GM that isn't willing to settle for being good and coming close. He wants to win a championship and we have the potential to get there still with our roster and assets."

quoting 'Greg B' on RealGM after 2017 trade deadline.
Read that last line again. One more time.

The thread title is misleading. He is going to stay in Latvia until he is required to report back to NY for training camp

He can sit out, not show up,  tell them to bite his butt ....they'll have to trade him. ......too embrassing to keep someone who hate on your organization 24/7

He's under contract. Pretty sure he'd be in breach and would face repercussions under CBA guidelines.

 Loss of pay, but I'm not sure what else happens to a holdout. He couldn't play in any respectable foreign leagues either.

Celtics need to send a spy to Latvia and convince him to demand a trade, outright.

The fans on this site should keep this in mind next time they bash our organization. When we land good players we actually know what to do with them.

I don't know about Towns,  they have a very exciting team to watch and grow. I believe the direction of the team changed once they hired Tom Thibs, only time can tell where they will be 3-5 years from now but a lineup of

Lavine/Wiggins/Towns is very exciting

Red Auerbach couldn't stand Jackson - always thought he got way too much credit for the success of the both Bulls and Lakers.  He was 100% correct.
