Little Tuesday Shams Bomb From The Clouds!!

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers

Some might be surprised by this news. Thankfully my #sauces were already giving me the DM heads up this morning

Why are we hearing about a more developed Shams Bomb now? Well, the calendar is important. There are many ways the Celtics can come up with a way to get close to Kyrie Irving’s $19M. One of those ways includes our favorite dancing bear Yabu. Well, Yabu couldn’t be traded until August 20th. It is now August 22nd and here is the leak. VERY interesting.

Now here’s the thing, try and not freak out. What is the ONE thing we know about Danny Ainge when it comes to trade rumors? If you hear about it on Twitter, chances are nothing is going to happen. I can’t stress that enough.

We’ve gone over it time and time again as to who you would prefer between Isaiah and Kyrie, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. The problem is it’s not a one for one deal, so the additional pieces matter. Kyrie alone isn’t bringing this team over the hump, and it’s going to take 3-4 players to even make this happen, which you then have to replace with nothing minimum contract players I would imagine. That’s not great. To those who say well, you get Kyrie moving forward, so this trade would be about the future, that’s part of why this whole thing confuses me. You’re going to have to give UP valuable pieces of your future in order to pull it off.

My guess? CLE is working on a separate deal, and leaked this info on purpose. How does it benefit the Celts to have this leak? I’m not sure it does. Either way, everyone head to your battle stations and buckle up
