A time for every purpose under the sun...
A time to be born and a time to die...
A time to lose and a time to seek.
Also.... to everyone there is a task..... and Danny's task is very different from ours. We are supposed to love our players, especially KG. That's why they brought him here. Danny's supposed to look out for the team's current and future health. It's Danny's job to trade KG... if, and ONLY IF... the RIGHT offer comes along. Is the Clips offer the "right" offer? That's the core question now.
It's not "Don't trade KG, he's the heart of the team, yada, yada, yada." Yeah, he's the heart of the team now. And in a year or two, he'll be retired and GONE. G - O - N - E. He's said it a million times: he intends to disappear when he retires, and lead a private life. I completely understand (and, btw, agree with) that inclination. It's his absolute right. But what it means to us is: once KG retires, there will NOTHING LEFT. Not even his knowledge and value as a coach for the younger guys. He will be 100% gone, to be seen only as a jersey in the rafters.
So.... a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance.
If Danny does his job well, and trades KG because the right deal did come along.... it will not be a time to weep or mourn. It'll be a time to celebrate the fact that this team will have reshaped its future.... from hopelessness and interminable waiting, to, hopefully, renewed greatness and relevance.
I.e., it's all about the deal. Forget the treacly emotionalism. It's the deal that counts. Is it a good one? Or not? Worth making? Or not? If it's the former, let's do it, without hesitation. If not.... well, we still have a banner to win right now.... so let's get to it.
