What exactly is this long game?
building a team that can compete for championships for several years. 3-4 years from now when this years rookies will really start to come into their own is when lebron will be past his prime and the warriors will have broken up. it will be the perfect time for the celtics to step in and start winning some more rings. trying to win this year at the expense of the future is stupid as shit unless you are the warriors/cavs
With all due respect, I think you are being dramatic. You stated above that we have a 0% chance to win this year no matter who we get, and I completely disagree with that. I think that's a major exaggeration. Cleveland in January was a huge flop (7-8), they were playing bad basketball, and Lebron had a fit. It takes getting Cleveland frustrated, and they could certainly drop a series. It also could take an injury (For example, Love being out or not at 100%) for a series to turn. So, I think the Celtics are in a possible "We can pull this off this year" mode, and I see where they are coming from if that's the thought process. Also, the Warriors don't look as good to me this year watching them, Green/Durant chemistry isn't good (numerous times screaming at eachother during timeouts and on the floor), and Steph isn't back to his old self yet. And remember, Steph was hurt in last years finals, and all's it takes is someone to be banged up.
I am not throwing the towel in on this season, I want to make a serious run, and I think the Celtics front office has that in mind. This doesn't mean we have to destroy our future. If we decide to make a move, it could involve one pick and a young player sure, but we will still be young and have the ability to grow. The 0% chance comment is not accurate.
