Thats big trouble for us if he goes to the heat or philly. I think both would beat us in a 7 game series if they landed him. He is a 2-way game changer and the piece each team is missing and has been our cryptonite.

Simmons/embiid/Lowry or Bam/Jimmy/Lowry is an all-time great defensive core


if we have full strength KD/Harden/Kyrie we are not getting beat by them.

Jarrett Allen is about to get $100 million dollar extension by the Cavs. I'm happy for JA and his family, he worked hard for that.

Yep I would say that the trade worked out for everyone involved when you consider how a) it literally saved Caris LeVert's life and b) Jarrett Allen goes to a team where they can afford to give him his market value. I'll always root for those guys and the rest of the Nets who helped lead up to this point.

This is the 2nd time I've seen someone test this man and ending up getting embarrassed. When will people learn that the 15th man on a NBA roster will whip your ass on the court?

This reminds me of the thread on the RealGM GB where dudes actually believed that they could drop buckets in an NBA game :lol:

We really miss Jarrett Allen though. I still cant help but wonder why the Rockets are so greedy. I'd understand if its Cavs' own picks, but it appears to be Bucks 1st round pick which will be around 25-30th. Why cant we just give them 2 x second round picks instead? Is a bottom 1st round pick worth so muchh at all? Losing Allen seriously hurts our title chance and we will have to count on Andre Drummont at least not signing with the Lakers(if he goes to LA its game over).

Drummond can go to LA but good luck trying to guard the 5-out Nets if he's on the court with AD...

Bucks haven't changed. Put zone d and dare them make shots, they can't. Its amazing how bad Kemba and Smart been, both Tatum and Brown seem to regress, very lackadaisical.

5 min down 10, Saltics might pull this one out. I want them to lose every game but this win can actually help us here so I'm not all against them winning.

How did Tatum and Brown made all star game before Harris? I know he always plays great when Doc is coach but really he's been balling this year. That all star Clippers Harris like if not better. Them coaches voted two players that playing sub 500 bball, some bs.

You can defend Giannis with basically any starting center and just have him stand at the FT line and dare him to shoot. it was pretty telling when DJ was guarding him.

At the time, Boston was a handful of games over .500 and philly, while in first, didnt have the great record they have now. and Tatum had significantly better numbers at the time. his shooting tanked since.

Appearantly Tristan Thompson has "major chemistry issues" and there are locker room issues in boston once again. Brown/Stevens scrambling to deny it

https://celticswire.usatoday.com/lists/brad-stevens-denies-team-chemistry-issues-amid-tristan-thompson-rumors/

So Horford, Morris, Heyward all decline huge options and leave for nothing. Rozier makes no secret about issues with the team. Kemba calls out the team for not playing hard. Smart is screaming at theis and now thompson has issues with teammates.

Tell me again how this was all Kyrie's fault?

There is no way Dame going to win MVP over Harden. I'll go after those clowns who think otherwise.
I'm not sure about Joker though, guy is a iron man monster. Denver is a lottery team without him.

Neither one of them played better than Toby.

lol, now Boston media is starting to say Kyrie was right.

Ainge was on this morning saying "we had more significant talks for more significant players but it would be too costly". he acknowledge the team is not a contender but this "makes them betteR"

Seems like they will do everything but point the finger at Ainge, who played himself by overvaluing assets and trying to rip people off instead of making moves.

It just doesn't end with them... People laugh but Jaylen Brown is a low key snake.
