Guess who Miami played yesterday? Washington ...after playing them, multiple teams players test positive...it's really strange?

I'm kinda disappointed. Was looking forward to seeing our deep bench getting a little play. I still maintain there is deadwood there that should be cleaned out. But let's give them a chance to see what they can do.

I’m fairly certain that you don’t test positive 18 hours after exposure.

This whole mess just highlights how much health luck there will wind up being in the regular season standings.

Exactly, they tried to outsmart themselves when deciding on this rules. In all sport here in Europe is like this, player testing positive goes into quarantene, others play on.

Contact tracing...come on all players are in contact with one another.


Yeah that’s the dumb part in this. To sit out for contact tracing makes no sense. If Rob Williams had it, then almost every player on the Celtics and the guys that were on the floor with him on the other team should all sit out based on contact tracking. But they pick and choose. Makes no sense.

What would make sense if what you are saying. If you test positive you sit and quarantine and if you’re negative, you play.

This is the problem. Good posters leave, so the board gets worse, so more good posters leave, so the board gets worse. It accelerates. This is how forums become ghost towns.

Please stick around.

Well ironically it appears the games postponed because the Heat only had 7 available players. We still had 8 the and game was on from our end.


We should really claim one of our 8 tweaked an ankle so we can postpone all our games until we have Tatum back.

Silver doing a piss poor job with this, but that's not surprising as he's only really done one thing right since taking over the league (the bubble).


That's what Doc tried to do with Philly and it didn't work.

Correct. That trend of everyone testing positive a day after playing the Wizards is just statistical noise. It doesn't work that way.

The real situation is that it's almost certainly just well-spread throughout the league already, and we'll be seeing more and more cases in the days and weeks to come.

Stick around. Game threads are unbearable. Not sure why every game is a referendum on Danny and brad.

It has become dumb.

This is the right call. It was moronic they were even waiting this long to make the call. For all the cred Silver built in the bubble, seems like they are losing it just as fast this season. Pause the league for a week, reset and retest everyone, and get going again from there.

NBA should require inflatable full body sumo suits for all players. I'd pay to watch this game.

Don't forget about Ainge. He drafted a bunch of players who can't fight covid. He needs to go. Fifty players went later in the past three drafts that could have played tonight and not been in quarantine.

Actually, i like the different characters here in our board. It makes it more fun and interesting. Just imagine if every posters are alike? No complaining, every one agreeing with each other, all are homers and team fanatics. That would be so boring and dull. Just look at other team’s board, not much action in there, even on a game day. I’m glad we have different personalities here. It makes our board fun. Other boards are boring, that’s why their fans/posters goes to the GB for action. At least we try to remain respectful with each other, and our mods are quick to react when things gets testy. So o respectfully disagree :D Now, if you are too sensitive to hear or read complaints against Brad and Danny, then this is not the place for you. We are all Celtics fans here ao everyone is good :D

PS. Try to go to the raps board. They have the biggest number of posters there, and they are allowed to say some things to each other, (like you are the worst, dumbest, etc), which i find funny though, at least nobody really does that here i think. My point is, they have an even bigger group than ours, and their board is as alive as ours. Much better than those boring ass boards!

Whoa Smart has already taken 17 threes, and it’s only halftime.

On the bright side, we get to hold the #1 spot in the standings for a little while longer.

I didn't get to watch the game, though I heard Nesmith hit 8 threes. Who says Danny can't draft? :D

Spoke too soon. Fakers on top again after their win over Houston.
