Here at DRaT, we often have group text threads that Stavi doesn’t feel inclined to participate in. What follows is a (slightly edited) transcript of said textversation.
Geo: Rondo + Deandre = bad news. Free throw/shooting is just too poor.
Bicky: Deandre has a terrible contract
Weiner: This clearly benefits Boston. KG is expensive as fuck too and Rivers was leaving. Free picks and they’ll probably unload some bad contracts (terry/lee). If they snag Bledsoe it’s an obvious coup.
Bicky: Don’t think he’s on the table.
Geo: Bledsoe’s a freak but I wouldn’t want him running my squad.
Weiner: Rondo would be the PG. Celts could experiment with Bledsoe’s role or trade him immediately.
Bicky: Listened to a Simmons podcast. He said he thinks the Celts might make a run at JSMOOV
Weiner: LOL RONDO AND JSMOOVE CLANKING JUMPERS
Bicky: ya kinda makes sense why doc wants to get the fuck out.
Geo: I’m gonna miss this Celtics squad. But the Clips will be interesting if the trade goes through.
Weiner: definitely contenders. They could get PP too.
Bicky: CP-(?)-pierce-Blake-KG with a coach who calls plays
Geo: And Crawford!
Weiner: sounds elite to me!
Geo: KG will teach Blake some shit too. That’s a scary team wow.
Bicky: Only thing stopping it is if Clips front office thinks they can get Dwight in a S/T for Blake and Butler or something.
Geo: You guys high on Blake?
Weiner: I think so Geo. Never had a real coach.
Bicky: Kinda weird him and CP don’t get along great though. I know a good coach fixes that, but gotta be a red flag.
Geo: VDN not a real coach? LOL. I like Blake too. Would like to see him work hard for a summer and become more polished. Easier said than done obviously. And I agree Bick. I wonder what the deal is with that. Blake needs to start playing more mad and fuck people up.
Weiner: It’s more of a red flag for CP3. He’s no more of a playoff winner than melo!!
Geo: CALL OUT!
