The natural play seems to be sending George as a rental to Cleveland for Love.

I just don’t see why the Celtics do this if Love doesn’t push the pedal for the Cavaliers being able to compete with the Warriors, why would it make the Celtics be competitive against the Cavaliers OR Warriors? Ainge is smart, he knows the Cavaliers won’t last forever; they’ve made plenty of organizational errors. The Warriors on the other hand, who knows how long they will last? Three to five years of being the very best team? Nobody is expecting Durant or Curry to retire after a 3-peat like another dominant team we know.

Two years ago, I would have agreed. But things have changed. Plus, if Paul George is better, wouldn’t the Celtics not be interested?
