Ainge about to take BC to school
KC: Do you still think your a championship caliber team?
Gar: I never said that and correct me if i'm wrong
KC: You were asked that question at the news conference announcing Thibodeau's dismissal and you answered yes

I'm on board with making this move if we don't give up too much, but I have an awful feeling that if this happens it's going to be BC burning through our future assets (lakers and kings picks) and our fan base (myself included) will be livid.

Do the 76ers really want Fultz that bad? If the plan is to have Simmons run the offense, why not just take Tatum at #3?

Guess the rumors that the Celtics Love Jackson are true..Thought Fultz would be s better fit in Boston then JJ since they already have Brown

He doesn't have to take the heat of selecting Josh Jackson 1st overall and assets. More beautiful assets.

What's wrong with Julius Randle? No D, but is he out of shape already?

I think I'm one of the few Okafor fans left out there and I think this draft is deep, don't think it's a bad idea for Ainge to go for him and 3

3rd pick + Lakes pick maybe? Especially if BC thinks the Lakers could end up winning enough to not be a bottom 5-7 team next year.

Lowe said no players involved only picks.

#1 for #3, lakers and sacramento would be glorious. Show us your incompetence Colangelo, Ainge is waiting.
