It's obvious you are seeing many things during his long and illustrious career but I don't know if he's ever seen. Anything like this. About trading -- coach. And a key player. The word is is there's no deal. I said at the beginning of the show I don't believe that I still think there's a -- what do you think. I think you're right there I think when you've had this much invested in the so much and too motivated parties here. A lot of times and put it to a so I would not rule out that they could still get something done here I -- both sides want this done right and you're gaining you obviously want to move on and try to rebuild. You get free Estes for your coach enemy LA. -- they would want docked there right at 156 games last year they get rid of their head coach. Give me guys gonna keep Chris Paul here so I think it's fascinating negotiating is both sides of this thing blew up would be upset about it that just try to get the right deal. It doesn't people who dig in and then it's blown up on both sides of times I'm not ruling it out. Don't underestimate the -- -- read Donald Sterling in this thing you know that's the -- you wonder why isn't why that is doing this why they've been. And that's probably why because it's a very. The rational. Let me just a little bit on the final offer that I heard the -- and you talked -- Henry Jordan and 21 round picks and they don't give up second first round pick if you got the kidney and he wouldn't be doing -- there in LA get me. You're worried about what 25 this year but next year -- they don't -- right on hello well what do you know Illinois and try to get it on the regular vitamin that type of player -- I mean that type of player you take a project yes you have that at states has no doubt about it and you know I -- -- -- deal breaker. Right now which is that's why it's -- fracture in in. But here's the thing is a lot of people have been talking about who has the hammer you know who has the leverage who needs to make the steal more. And I'm gonna disappoint some people live here but. The realities. I don't think the whole lot's gonna change in the way that the for example. If not doesn't go to LA and Byron Scott becomes a head coach of the clippers' Chris Paul is still minister. Because Byron Scott was his guy -- once the Paul doesn't get Rivers he wants to. So then Rivers but so Allstate's. NBA coaches. The overrated it's still comes out of the players. Kevin Garnett guys. If you're telling me that Kevin Garnett is the difference between the LA Clippers up ending the Oklahoma City Thunder. I think you crazy. We're really over valuing these steal for the Clippers on the other it. We're over valuing the deal for the Celtics. The other Jordan isn't gonna do anything to this team that I could get anything of the draft picks so if this deal doesn't get done and doc pulls away in those TV. Nothing really changes well twelve of the -- gonna go ahead ask constituted. Or. They're going to you know start over right I think the scenario B looks like where we're headed here and how they do that what the cast of characters I think it does affect that. Want him but the -- that uses -- you -- talking about two high draft -- now we get on the road getting into the lottery now. You know and well I actually did you get really -- and -- and you get something because he's gonna retired doctors and come back. In my opinion. This -- whoever coaches the celtics' next is gonna be fired before they win the next night but I mean it's just that kind of lead in the -- files by the end of the month -- a big deal it's a big chip that has to play out Chris -- is the big back like you said he's Tuesday was Scott by the time he'll be with. If you once if you want KG adopt this day.
