I love me some Jayson Tatum, but let's be serious.  You wouldn't trade him for Anthony Davis?  Come on.

Absolutely NOT.  We now have all the pieces we need to compete for championships going forward.

Irving, Smart, Horford, Davis, and Hayward is not a championship team to you?

So tell me what you think is the best method, or plan of going through? I would like to keep the youngsters. We could certainly have a dynasty on our hands, for quite a long time.

Davis is certainly the cream of the prop in prospects, and the possible superstar the Celtics have been waiting for.

The guy doesn't know basketball. Surprised anyone here pays attention to him.

2021. I remember people saying to trade for Hayward as well. Don't give up anything for him. Let the kids develop and sign him in 2021 after horford takes vet min.

You thought GSW is a superteam? That team won't lose 5 games. And they could have a title by then already.

Straight up it'd be impossible to say no to.

But it wouldn't be straight up, which is why I'd be hesitant

Yeah, it depends on what is needed for “filler”, but if it was realistically possible to keep Horford, Kyrie and Hayward while adding Davis, you’d have to do it.

What’s Tatum’s upside? Granger? Pierce? PG13?

Taking emotion out of it, I’d trade any of them for Davis.

Salary-matching is a big issue unfortunately.

The way Tatum is playing year one his upside could be KD level. Would you do KD for Davis? I wouldn't.

Yeah you still hand over all the kids for Davis, assuming he wants to come here and sign another contract. He's that good already and only 24.

I hate his injury history and body type lasting a long career.  He will eventually have foot problems and that will be it. 

Also, why doesnt he win more?  Wasnt Lebron winning more?  I dont feel he is that franchise changing.   But also,  i cant believe tatums ability to score at crunch time at the end of games.  Seriously,  whats his ceiling?   I think its arguably higher than Davis

anthony Davis is one of my favorite players but you make a fair point about his winning. If he was such a. Game changing player, why don't they ever make noise or even play the playoffs? There's some stats showing the team sometimes plays better with cousins without davis on the floor

I read similar arguments about not trading for a 31 year old KG who couldn't get his teams to the playoffs the last two years. Anthony Davis is that caliber of player, MVP level talent, right now and he's only 24.

He definitely gets banged, but he still plays enough for me to to stress about it too much.
