Saunders doesn't seem like a General Manager ready to trade his franchise player. His jab at Celtic fans seems genuine, and not a selling tactic. When Love goes to him asking to be traded to Boston, you know Saunders will be faced with a big choice. Gamble on Love resigning, or trade him for potential. Saunders to me sounds like he knows the Celtics have won Love, and he's upset.
“They’re the same fans who thought they had Tim Duncan,” he joked. “They still think they got Tim Duncan in the draft. I’m not really sure, but the last I looked he was playing for San Antonio, Old Man Riverwalk.”
