Seems like revisionist history when it comes to last offseason. It was clear from the outset that Brad's and Wyc's #1 priority was to get back to the Finals this season (hard to argue against that), and so there were few trades involving Brown that could have made much sense. And the comparison w/ Dallas makes little sense, as that team had little star depth beyond Luka.I disagree that the only thing out there is/was Durant. Star players are always becoming available and/or looking to move on. Dallas fans are probably saying the same thing right now about not getting back fair value for Doncic before he forces a trade. Hmmmm
If they have to unload Brown this summer, so be it; they will still get enough value in return to be able to retool around Tatum & Co. But given the team's situation last summer (before the Ime situation blew up), Brad absolutely made the right decision by keep Brown in Boston. Brad just needs to be better than Danny at reading the room regarding JB7's intentions when he hits his UFA year; shouldn't be that difficult.
