But so what?
What I'm thinking about is what did we learn from this signing? We learned
that Danny just doesn't know with certainty that Kyrie is coming back. We
learned that Danny thinks that Kyrie is as mercurial as we all do. His
flights of fancy could fling him out of town in a year without a sound.
That is something the Celtics could survive and still be Champions. But
they would need Rozier, or Smart, playing the Point.
already settling into the Celtics for this season. "I couldn't be
more proud of what (the C's young Dudes did, and) experienced. I mean,
they went to Game 7 of the frickin' Eastern Conference finals,"
Irving said. "For me, I'm just glad everyone got to learn how special
they were on a bigger stage. I'd been talking about how great (they) were.
Some of their numbers probably didn't look as appealing to the
outside-looker, but they were just… they were always locked in. And then
when they were afforded the opportunity to take the reins of the team, you
saw them take full advantage of it. You saw guys that literally are going
to be stars in this league for years to come." With LeBron gone, they
are going to be in the Finals for years to come.
A large part of
Marcus's deal is that he is Smart Insurance for Kyrie. "Three agents
told the Herald they fully expect Irving to opt out and leave next
wrote. "But sources connected to the player reiterated in the
last two days that, while there are miles to go between now and the end of
the coming season, the All-Star guard is quite pleased with his Celtic
surroundings and has been talking about the future here beyond
2018-19." Now I don't buy all that.
Kyrie will definitely
opt out of his contract after this season. DUH! Who the hell wouldn't! If
he opts out he is talking about a near 200-MIL DEAL WITH THE CELTICS. Not
news dudes. So the idea that he is instantly gone is 200-million short of
reality (okay, so about 187-mil short;). Now he could sign a grand deal
with the Knicks or (God forbid;) Brooklyn. But it ain't gonna be as close
to a quarter-Bil (that's BILLION) as the Celt's can give him.
You just don't
dance outta town, and toss away 80-Mil or so, so you can go to Jersey. The
idea the Kyrie is gone after this season is not settled math. There is a
clear path to New York for Kyrie, and we all know he dances to his own
band. So there is a chance he's gone. The slightest of mercurial chances.
That's a lot of cake. So the idea that Kyrie opting-out is a hint in any
way shape or form that he is thinking of leaving is stupid. He HAS
to become a free agent. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY HE CAN SIGN THE MAX DEAL.
"Contractually, financially, (not opting-out would be financial
suicide, and) just doesn’t make any sense," Irving said.
That is not an
admission of anything other than common sense. "I think you guys can
feel my attitude is really just redemption next year. Really integrating
myself with our team again and really focus on winning a championship.
That’s the only thing I’m really worried about," Kyrie said.
"Until I get to that point, then I can’t really answer any
questions. I’m pretty sure management and I will have a talk, but that
talk won’t happen now." However, it is also not saying that it will
be a Leprechaun who gives him the pot o' gold after this rainbow season.
So Marcus is
Irving-Insurance, because there is also the knee. "Me and my strength
and conditioning coach, we're taking it one day at a time," Kyrie
said. "I think around this time is probably 15 weeks until the third
week in September, not that I'm thinking about it or anything. So I'm
excited to just really utilize this offseason to dedicate myself to my
craft and things outside of it." Oh, that's all he's thinking about.
He also sees
the advantage of having top talent around him, and not just being a one
man band. "The Warriors are just, they're that great. You see in a
Game Three in Cleveland, and you see the difference on why (KD) is so
special," Kyrie said. "You see a 43. And then you see: 12, 11,
10, 10, 10, 10. The year before, in playing them in 2016, they couldn't
necessarily get away with a game like that. They've afforded that. Of
integrating that team environment, and now adding a very, very special
player. Just a big fan of what he does out on the floor." Kyrie is a
very, very special player, and once he is added to the young Celtics they
will own the East for as long as he choices to stay, like since the
Warriors added KD they have owned the West.
more year of health, and he is also on his way to being a 1/4-billionaire,
and maybe a champion again. "The focus is solely on winning a
championship next year," Kyrie said. "I don't think (my contract
being up will) necessarily have an effect. I'm doing my best to kind of
deflect all that, and focus on what's in front of us." Only the
Celtics can sign him to that contract. Not the Kicks, or the Nets. That
is why he will be back, but...

"Of course, if you’re one of The 54 Percent — the Americans who actively oppose Trump — there is a good chance of electing a radically new House of Representatives for 2019 that will act decisively if special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe provides enough evidence for impeachment. But Republican senators and The 41 Percent won’t stand for Trump’s ultimate removal, and I’m not sure anyone is ready for the new brand of civil war that would be created by all of this.
"The other possibility that could actually bring Trump’s support below 41 percent is also unspeakably grim and undesirable: A recession might demolish the argument that Trump is doing an “amazing” job (and which might come sooner than normal because of the recklessness of his trade wars), but it would also demolish a lot of undeserving hard-working American families. The other great uncertainty is war, which often boosts tyrants at first only to bring them low in the long run.
"These fears are what keep most of us awake at night — but they don’t seem to resonate with The 41 Percent. Not when you can still sit around a sun-soaked picnic table in Michigan and cling to your image of the tall man at the podium. Especially if you put the sound on mute."
