Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

If they can get anything out of him I will be floored. Who are they cutting?

Don’t know how I feel about this.. if he can come in and get 10-12 that’s better than anything we have minus Fournier. Doesn’t help the D though.

Jabari Parker thread by Stadium5 is on a good time to be unlocked.

I don't understand the move. If they cut Edwards they will have to absorb the rest of his deal, probably stretched, but with margins so thin, why?

Oh if they cut Edwards that's stupid. Has to be Wagner. But maybe I just have too high of hopes that Edwards will be a serviceable player. I dunno why you would hamper your future cap even a little bit just to sign some bum who won't even play in the playoffs.

Stadium5 says he's wearing #20, which is what Wagner currently wears.

Stadium5 has dropped stuff before. No idea why that got locked.

Stadium5 said he'll wear 20, Wagner's number atm. Going by that, Money Mo might have laced em up for the last time with us.

Second year's gotta be a team option, I'm assuming

We're back to last season stats for a stretch here(meaning top 3-4 stats). Hopefully this continues. Maybe, Jabari could offer something. Dude was a pretty decent talent, injuries and being kinda lazy prevented him from reaching his potential imo.
Good assessment:

Since Perk's comments on Tatum (not sure how many games) It seems like Tatum is as good as any player in the NBA.. JB is coming off his Best Pro Game.. How nice that they both are hitting their strides right now.
Boston will never win 18 BECAUSE of Brad Stevens

This teams going to be dangerous when they’re fully healthy. Our bench has been a huge problem but now with the likes of Fournier, Parker, Thompson & Pritchard coming off it, it changes the dynamic off this team.

So let's see what we have here. When healthy:

Kemba/Marcus/JB/JT/TimeLord

bench is now: PP/Romeo/FournHub/JP/TT

All the sudden we have the makings of an actual team here, no cap. And the fact that we're starting to play our best ball and we're still getting guys back. We could be that team going into the playoffs that EVERYONE wants to avoid.

After tonight's game, the Celtics now have the best record and best net rating in the month of April. Top 6 in both offensive and defensive rating. I didn't expect for us to turn the season around, but here we are. Celtics basketball is fun to watch again.

Can't believe I'm saying it, but this bench is actually starting to look passable IF Parker can continue to get buckets.

PP, Romeo, Fournier, Parker and Rob off the bench isn't going to blow the doors open, but it's a ton better than the crapola Ainge put together at the beginning of the year.
