Ainge needs to pick 2 and move the other


Dis we Not have all 3 starting in Haywards first game for us? Why not repeat that?

Celtics tried this last year it didn’t work. Brown to the bench


That's an incredibly hollow argument. Circumstances dictated a lot of that struggle (Hayward's recovery, Brown's injury, etc). Brown was closing games by the end of the year, but was clearly worthy of starting over Mook. Brad was trying too hard to appease the expiring contract vets.

Please do not sign MORRIS.

Didnt the Celts learn their lesson with Rozier and Mook last year?

Just let Tatum, Brown, and Hayward have his shots.

SMH....I just want Morris GONE. Tired of his black hole offense. When he gets the ball, you know its going up. If Boston does this, you can say goodbye to seeing, Williams or Timelord getting minutes. Then all year long you guys will complain about not getting to see the Williams' getting PT.

Any chance our rooks (Langford, Edwards,Waters) get some burn over Wanamaker?

Also don't like the fact that Kanter and Poirier will take minutes from Time Lord. The kid needs to play.

One on one sign and trade shouldn't take this long at all. Unreal.

Celtics tried Tatum at the 4 last year and it failed miserably. Nothing hollow about that

Good luck coming up with enough salary for a midseason trade without including Smart or Hayward.

Unreal? Do you have an issue with it taking this long?

Maybe another years experience and strength could make a difference. Might depend on match ups as well, but they might not be happy with that.

Sorry, I’m trying to win as many games as possible this season in a wide open Eastern Conference.

Just thought it should have been done by now, and wanted to them to go after a star player. I was hoping for that, still am.

Does it matter when it is AD, who demands a trade after getting the blame from old man Lebron who are out of the playoff race? Lol
