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
Cousins PPG/RPG/etc are crazy good, but he also turns it over a ton and fouls. His overall efficiency isn't elite.

Davis has played better than him this year still by a wide margin, and I think Cousins has been playing pretty great.

Dang, I voted "No" on this poll too btw, but I bet you if this was asked a few months ago (August-September), this would be lopsided in favor of "yes".  :P

Of course, a lot of people in Boston didn't like the KG trade because the loved/believed in Big Al so much.

Trust me, if they pulled off "another KG deal" with Anthony Davis here and they traded away Tatum, I'll be sobbing in my bed.  :laugh:

I'll go with whatever DA decides is best. He's not always right but he sure as heck knows/does better than most!

Wow what a great problem to have  ;D I can see an argument either way. Strength in numbers or having another superstar added to the team. It may suit the Cís to better to let the young guns continue to develop if GS stars take less money like they say they will.

Pelicans traded Buddy Hield for Cousins.

Ainge should've packaged something like Smart/Rozier/Celtics pick for Cousins so AD wouldn't be in the discussions these days.

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.

Whatís Tatumís upside? Granger? Pierce? PG13?

Taking emotion out of it, Iíd trade any of them for Davis.
The way Tatum is playing year one his upside could be KD level. Would you do KD for Davis? I wouldn't.

Not sure about KD level... PG13 level...sure

Tonight again, marvelous game.clutch buckets

18ppg with 2 clutch buckets is becoming the norm

Thursdays game will be a big test for Tatum and the Celts

Tatum is the perfect modern NBA talent. He reminds me of Kawhi a little bit. I donít know if he could be THAT good on both ends of the floor but the talent is there.

Would I trade him straight up for AD? Reluctantly, yes. But would I add in multiple assets such as Brown, Smart, Lakers/Kings 1st? Nope.

Everyone who watches the kid play comes away impressed. Heís 19! When he hits his prime, watch out.

Voted No.
I wouldn't give very possibly 2 future all-stars and a starter for Davis.
Not that Davis isn't worth a lot, just that it is too much also considering his durability issues.

So far seen Tatum is our future, full stop. But, how about Brown + Hayward for AD?!   :)
Giving Hayward should leave Smart out of it.

Kyrie
Smart
Tatum
Horford
AD

If Tatum keeps this up he's having a stronger 19 year old rookie season than Kevin Durant.

You don't trade that bar of gold bullion for anything.

Not my recollection of the general reaction to the KG trade.

The polling before the trade showed that fans were very against a KG trade if Big Al was included.  That was both here and on the Globeís website.

After the trade actually happened, fans were ecstatic.
