Cool. I can make some wild ass scenarios where Brad Stevens stays, the team doesn't make the playoffs this year, finishes under .500 next year. Tatum and Brown get pissed off and demand trades etc.OK Example......We play .400-500 ball the rest of this season. (under an Interim)
We bring in SOMEBODY for next year. He also goes .500
We all say well he needs a year for his system to take hold.
He comes back the following season and we go @.500.
Tatum is pissed. Jalen is pissed. They demand a trade. We change the coach to try to appease. But one of them stays pissed.
We trade them for Quarters on the Dollar because we have to and now the new coach is stuck with a less talented roster.
Somewhere in here Ainge is fired. (which may be part of your hope) and replaced by SOMEONE.
So 5 years, 3 coaches and 2 GMs from now Tatum is a FA and says screw this, too much change and chaos. I am going go play with my friend in ______.
SO yeah I think it could get alot worse and Backfire quite badly.
Question 1o you think Stevens is a Bad Coach? Where does he rank in the league?
Question 2: Do you think Ainge is a good exec? Where does he rank in the league?
Question 3: How does Tatum (and Brown) actually feel. (we dont and probably cant KNOW this. Until its clear that he cant exist with CBS and or DA then its silly to make a change because "Often the Grass is greener". Often it isnt.)
Look at 2019-2020 We were coming off a miserable season of Kyrie trying to wreck it all. CBS coaches them to the ECF.
I am not saying that CBS or DA is untouchable. But this year is not the year to decide that. See how a fresh year shakes out next year. if its bad then Wyc has a heart to heart with Tatum (maybe with DA, maybe without). Then you decide.
