1 for 4 deal closed! The coolest deal in NBA history, absolutely, amazingly
This deal happened in the midst of electric flint...
Two days ago, the Blazers sent Lillard to the Bucks for Holladay, and then immediately released the news that they were going to trade Holladay.
Unexpectedly, only 3 days later, Holladay's deal was reached.
You know, Lillard traded, it was a toss for 3 months!
Not the Lakers, not the Heat, not Philadelphia, not the Clippers, not the Warriors, the Blazers sent Holladay to the Celtics.
The Blazers sent Holladay with Robert Williams, Brogdon, a 2024 first-round pick (of the Warriors) and a 2029 unprotected first-round pick by the Celtics.
How do you think that what you get in this deal is not much worse than Lillard.
So, taken together, Lillard traded the Blazers for Ayton, Kamara, Lowe, Brogdon and 5 first-round picks.
Gee, it's still worth a lot.
Cousin: This is bitter, who understands! For the first time, I felt that I could not be worth so much.
It has to be said that the Blazers' management is quite awesome in this wave of operations, which can be called the most awesome in history.
It's not that this transaction is so rewarding, but this operation is too cool, the main thing is a revenge, there is revenge, you don't make me feel good, I won't let you have a good time.
Not only did he have a good harvest, but he also disrupted the situation in the east, "retaliating" on two teams at once, and Lillard was also counted.
Lillard, don't you want to go to a team that has the strength to compete for the championship?
Bucks, do you think you're stable in the East?
Heat, don't you quietly want to pinch us and "take advantage of" Lillard?
Hum! Go for your own evil consequences, destroy them!
After the Bucks got Lillard, the odds of winning the championship jumped to first.
Then, after the Blazers sent Holladay to the Celtics, the championship odds were updated as soon as possible, and the Celtics immediately overtook the Bucks and moved up to first.
Oh yes, the Bucks signed Cameron Payne at Lightspeed today, and they also discovered that they don't have a serious point guard on the roster right now, right?!
But the Celtics got Holladay and it still hit them hard. Seriously, whether it's the Lakers, the 76ers or the Heat, whoever gets Holladay's impact on the Bucks is not as big as the Celtics get Holladay's impact on the Bucks.
Yes, the Celtics sent away almost all the defensive gates in the roster, Smart, Gwe, and Lowe are gone, but didn't this get Holladay? Defend a team of members!
Today the Celtics also signed Lakers veteran Gabriel (training camp contract), and they also know that their roster is a bit empty inside and are working hard.
Celtic celebrities, Garnett, Pierce, etc... One by one, mushrooms have sprung up, happy as the New Year, and they all think that the Celtics are operating too beautifully.
Many believe that this is the strongest lineup for the Celtics since winning the championship in 2008.
What do you think?
Anyway, Embiid over there was very hungry, and after the deal was concluded, Embiid updated his tweet, writing: This offseason is interesting, haha.
Is this a bitter pleasure?
It's bustling to watch the free market, but it's not about me. One by one, the opponents become stronger, only they sink in various contradictions ...
Emperor, is there an impulse to join the Celtics, just because they lack a young center!
The Heat probably didn't expect that they just dragged the deal and suddenly created two powerful enemies for themselves in the east.
Riley: Playing geese all day, I didn't expect to be pecked in the eye.
The two Blazers deals, the biggest hit is definitely the Heat, the Bucks and Celtics have become stronger, only they are quietly weakening.
The past 15 months of the Heat, 3 trading periods have been quite difficult! In the superstar battle, the Heat are 0-4, worse than this year's Finals, which they won 1, 1-4.
Wanted Mitchell, went to the Knights.
Want Durant, go to the sun.
Wanted Bill, went to the sun.
Wanted Lillard, went to the Bucks.
A summer passed, and the Heat, who reached the Finals, stumbled in terms of reinforcements. Lost Vincent, Strus, Oladipo, Utsevern and Cody Zeller, but only Thomas Bryant, Josh Richardson and Jaime Hax were added to the reinforcements.
Anyway, now the Heat are definitely not among the Eastern Conference championship favorites...
I don't know if they regretted "provoking" Lillard!
Judge with the naked eye, these three teams, who is stronger on the books!
