More like Lakers in shambles if they don't land Kawhi.

They just need talent right now. Klay isn’t playing next year and that team is seriously suspect after Curry.

Draymond is a glue guy
Livingston is a backup
Igoudala is cooked
Jordan Bell sucks

They are so shallow post KD and with Klay’s injury. Cousins likely out, too


Iggy can still play lockdown D. The guy is a freak.

If that is Taj Gibson, he is a Knick.




76ers need Butler gone to get Horford?

Doesn't that put Boston in a great spot, if Dallas falls over?

Celtics could instead get plenty from Miami, plenty.



Do you want The Kelly Olynyk back?

2019-2020 - we finally get to see if Jayson and Jaylen are worth the hype.


With Kemba coming in and the way Brad loves scoring PGs I think the training wheels are firmly slapped on Tatum and Brown for the next couple of years. If we had brought in a big or two rather than Kemba then I think we'd get a chance to see what they can do as featured usage guys. Now we may not find that out until we have to decide whether or not to extend them.


Nah, Irving Morris Terry Horford all gone. That's like 65 points to replace. Kemba is good for 25.

Tatum and Brown will average 20ppg..

Dlo to Warriors, Kawhi to Clippers = perfect night.

NBAtv thinks a Warrior has to be on the move for the sign and trade to happen with Brooklyn.

The Warriors get something for losing KD, but Nets don’t wanna play ball with us for a Kyrie S&T? Blah.

You don't need them to be high usage guys to understand whether to resign them or not it is about wins and losses. We win 50 games and a round or two in the postseason then you pay the boys for a job well done. If we are under .500 and they are putting up 20 pgg but just out of high usage why would you want to pay them?

Team still needs a big man but I kind of like where this is going.

Tough crowd lol.

Tough crowd let's see now we draft small lose rozier,irving, horford,morris, baynes, and sign an older version of kyrie without the attitude. Let a plethora of decent bigs with good contracts walk without talking to them. so ya not a tough crowd a very smart crowd that sees a hurry up plan turn to no depth and below avg available bigs left that we will most likely have to pay and play, all the while almost every eastern team not named wizards increased there talent.

Yep. Seriously don’t get these everything is fine posts. I guess it’s to be expected from posters who spend months telling everyone Davis will be a Celtic when it never even came close.

All signing Kemba did was alleviate a disaster. It wasn’t some genius move.

Meanwhile the rest of our team got gutted and we are left hoping Jaylen Brown learns how to dribble and Tatum can figure out how to be a great scorer. Both fairly ridiculous expectations in just one off season.


Just a few years ago the two best players on the team were Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green. Then we had a period where the only young talents on the team were Marcus Smart and James Young.

The current team has an all-NBA point guard, a former all-star wing in Gordon Hayward who was the centerpiece of a good playoff team out West, a first team all defensive player, the youngest Celtic ever to score 30 points in a playoff game in Brown, a very exciting young wing in Tatum, and then at least three other players who are just interesting young guys with upside - from Williams to Langford to Edwards. Things change quickly in basketball - one flukey trade like the IT deal or one draft pick who unexpectedly pops can change a whole team around. Who knew Khris Middleton would be a star? Also players grow and improve. Jimmy Butler was just a defensive specialist, same with Kyle Lowry, Marc Gasol was a throw-in. Even older vets make jumps - Enes Kanter was really good with Portland. The Cs are in a tough spot but if they at least play hard, they should be very fun to watch, which is more than enough for me after last year.
