While that last bit may be hyperbole, the fact that this offseason is going to be a wild ride that may make Gordon Hayward's free agency signing feel like a relaxed afternoon at the park is probably not.
"I’ve heard that Davis wouldn’t completely rule out staying with the Celtics without Irving, but the odds of him re-upping in that scenario are significantly lower."
I won't try to divine what exactly a scenario where AD would stay might look like just yet, but with rumors Kyrie might be already locked up as a future Los Angeles Laker bubbling up from the likes of the Ringer's head honcho Bill Simmons, I find myself aggressively avoiding any speculation what such a crazy heel turn might end up looking like...or how it might play out.
"The rumor mill is fantastic. I don't mind passing along various things I've heard, including, somebody told me that ... the Lakers had to back out of the Ty Lue thing because Ty Lue and Kyrie, they couldn't be together again and Kyrie's going to go there and that's why that fell through. Not because of the contract. I have no idea if that's true or not but that's going to be the next two months of my life."
This doesn't exactly feel like especially strong intel, so I won't go any further down that particular rabbit hole, but if nothing else, it ought to give you the tiniest taste of what's coming down the pike over the next several weeks. I hope you're more ready than I am.
