If IT trade gets voided, he might ask Celtics fir buyout and sign with another team later in season with contender. Wouldnt mind having him for this season

Sure an all star that was in most people's eyes a top 5-7 MVP candidate would love to play 6th man behind cp3 and harden...



But on a serious note...if for some crazy reason he would, I'd be so happy. Huge IT fan

He could save Harden and cp3 a ton of minutes during regular season.... Those guys will be much fresher come playoff time. He would get starters type minutes during regular

Oh geez.

That's not Shawn Livingston, but it ain't much better.
One things for sure, though, that's no "fracture", that's a straight up twix commercial break.

GWS Hayward.

What's been up with all the gruesome leg injuries over the last 10 years or so?

Livingston, George, Hayward.
Others?

I don't remember ever hearing about any of these from before then.

Maybe some supplement that reduces bone density?

^ No way. Capela is currently the more valuable player, and he complements our roster a lot more.

But I do want Okafor if we can get him for a reasonable package that doesn't include any of our key pieces.

Oi.

I read that as "Emeka" and not "Jahlil".

OLD.

Side note: Apparently, he only played till he was 30, and he got worse every year.

I know it's early, but the NBA standings so far make NO sense.

it goes by winning percentage
if tie then it go to tie breaker
head to head matchup first, then conference record, then division, then home court

here you go

Sounding like a championship potential if it trends.

2017-18 RPM came out yesterday, Harden is number 1!

This is also the first season where the Rockets defense was better with him on the floor

Noel is in the doghouse with Mavs. If the Rockets don't have to give up much for him, i wouldn't mind having him. His attitude isn't that bad....would like another rim protector. I just don't trust Nene's health going into post season. Tariq is solid, but we need another big behind Capela.

Found a nice, non-SAP-converted throwback to the old version of NBA.com

http://www.nba.com/encyclopedia/playoffs_appearances.html

The part of SAP that REALLY, REALLY blows my mind...
I GUARANTEE you that their new pages all cost upward of $250,000+ per page (between licensing, DBAs, BAs, PMs, Development Contractors, sales management, project meetings, design meetings, regression testing, etc), and quite possible much higher than that. I honestly wouldn't be shocked at $1,000,000 per page, given all the plumbing that underlies them.

Who thinks they paid over $2,500 per page for these old HTML pages? $400, maybe even?
Compared to "Hey Joe, we need a new page to show NBA Finals history. Can you spin up a few dozen of them? I'll get you the info by Tuesday."

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
I really have absolutely NO idea how it makes financial sense. It's just absolutely amazing to me.
