From what I read she seems pissed about the outside influences on the team... I bet you she won't do business with the Lakers unless Boston and other suitors offers are like 50% what the Lakers is... to give in to them now (or a week ago) would be letting those influences get what they want. She might move him for less to another team just as an eff you to the Lakers, AD, and Rich Paul. She should have dug in and told the NBA to shove it and that she'd take the fines and use her legal team to fight the hell out of them. Could start a small market rebellion. I get it... players want to be in better markets... can't blame em and not gonna stop em... but the NBA caters to big markets and stars a bit too much. Whether they like it or not the big markets need the small ones. If small markets just become super team feeder programs it ain't good for the league as a whole. Now... NO isn't blameless here... they had 8 years to put something around the guy and couldn't get it done, but AD trying to strong arm his way to the Lakers when he could have signed a shorter contract or added options is kinda his choice too... so if you sign the deal you better be prepared to ride it out or you work with the organization on a solution. Using back channels and pressure to strong arm the organization was wrong.
