Well its more like one and half season but you get my point. 

Really what matters from that trade was the 2018 8th pick (no disrespect to IT4 or Crowder).

Stays or walks, I would make that trade any day of the week, for a chance to win a championship.

Picked yes because C's are a playoff team. If they were building I'd say No.
Mock "trade deadline" team: Blazers.
PG-Lillard, Napier, Baldwin
SG-McCollum, Connaughton, Wilcox
SF-Fournier, Harkless, Layman
PF-Aminu, Davis
C- Nurkic, Leonard, Collins

Have to say yes. Everything that happened last season helped Brown and Tatum.

With Irving and Hayward healthy this season?

Celtics should be as good as any to make it to the finals.

Without the trade? I just don't know about any of that...including Ainge has to pay the guys he traded away.

None of this was going on before the trade...

Irving's arrival + Hayward = contender

No

We keep IT and 8th pick plus we still have Hayward. Thomas eventually gets healthy and is solid for the playoffs. Now we still have a great team without cutting IT's throat and team chemistry is even better.  Going forward, we have a much more settled roster and a better chance to trade up for Mamba.

What we don't have is a flake for a starting point guard, who is self-centered and doesn't care who knows it.  I say with a healthy Thomas + Hayward + Talented Post Defender we are better and are a contender for titles for the next decade. With Irving, we now have a bunch of uncertainty. I say Thomas would re-sign for a reasonable contract in the end because he absolutely loves being a Celtic.

The number 8 pick?  Are you kidding me?  Have people looked at the history of that pick?

I would take Kyrie over any 3 of those picks.

This is a joke right..?

Kyrie is worth a top 3 pick.. lets be real..

Lol. IT is trash now, and will most likely never even be an All-Star level player again. Why would you want him? Worse at both ends than Kyrie, older and on the decline.

Oh, crap - Kobe's coming out of retirement? ;) And we're going to trade a top 10 pick for him, to boot? ;)

Lol, just kidding ;D.

If the trade was 2 seasons (one playoffs) of Kyrie for the 8th pick?  And he leaves for another team with no additional compensation?

No way. Why would anybody make that trade?

Thomas is trash now ??  I thought he finished up this season with the Lakers playing well. I'm not saying he will return to the peak he reached two years ago, but he would be a great 6th man on our next title team without the Kyrie headaches to deal with.

15.2 points, 4.8 assists, 37% FGs, 29% 3-pointers while being possibly the biggest defensive liability in the NBA is trash by my standards. Putting up ok, yet empty numbers (at terrible efficiency) on a garbage team isn’t what I’d ever call playing well
