I think it's cool this video is even a thing. Wish more videos existed of players finding out they're traded

That whole series is good.  And IT will be fine.  The trade gives him the opportunity to reach the Finals this year, and earn his next contract in a better situation.

The lens is "too soft", "too shallow" to be a cell phone camera.
The way IT was shot (filmed) it looks like as there was/is a documentary about him in the making.
I find his response authentic, but I think that the part of him and his wife getting out of the car is directed.

I literally just realized out while watching this vid how epic the ECF is gonna be.

IT is the most inspirational player I ever watched.  Watching a guy that small destroy guys a foot taller than him like nobody has ever done before is simply awesome to witness.

That emotional buildup from going against the team that traded him combined with the chance to get his first ring is likely going produce some special things for us to watch.  I don't even care that it'll be at our expense; if we come out victorious it'll just make it that much better.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

It was very cold blooded for Danny to trade him....BUT--several factors made it the right move.
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.
