    Could Sterns exit mean better luck in Lottery for C's?

    Just wondering if the exit of David Stern {The Crook} could mean that those Lottery balls could start to pop our way now? I think we all know that the Draft Lottery is a joke and as honest as the crooks in Washington DC and I sure wish we could see the balls being pulled. Brad Stevens is a very like-able guy and pretty Marketable as well and if you watch C's games on the road, you know there is always a ton of green in the stands. It would be good for the League if the C's got back into contention so might our luck be about to change or as Tommy would say, the Leprechauns are waking up? Happy New Year to all!!!!

    Thank YOU Sir. Maybe I got into the Coors Light a bit early, ha. Heck Mel, I would just be happy with a top 4 or 5 pick this year but our luck has to change eventually. We have never had the first pick in the draft if I recall correctly? Cheers!

    I did not even know they had a draft in 1950. Now, I am old as well but I thought I read that the C's were the one of the only teams to never have the #1 Pick. Maybe they meant since the Draft Lottery started {uh hum} David Stern!

    Celts picked Charlie Share #1 in 1950.

    But Share never played for the Celtics.

     

    And yes, since the inception of the NBA Draft Lottery, the Celts has never had a #1 overall pick.

    Fierce, I really appreciate a person with the knowledge that you have. This is my source for answers to my Celtic questions and I am too old and have NO patience to search this stuff out on the internets. So my friend, Thanks for the info!

    I hear you Mel. I read folks taking shots at each other here and I just wonder if they were ever on a TEAM? We are all after the same thing and that is #18 for the Celts and I just do not get it when people takes shots for wild guesses. Nobody here has the answers and we are all guessing when it comes to "what might be" so why would we kick each other?

    Regarding Red Auerbach and Bob Cousy.

    Here:

    The early years (1950–56) [edit]

    Prior to the 1950–51 NBA season, Auerbach was approached by Walter Brown, owner of the Boston Celtics. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22–46 record.[5] The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach. In the 1950 NBA Draft, Auerbach made some notable moves. First, he famously snubbed Hall-of-Fame New England point guard Bob Cousy in the 1950 NBA Draft, infuriating the Boston crowd. He argued that the flashy Cousy lacked the poise necessary to make his team, taunting him as a "local yokel".[2] Second, he drafted African-American Chuck Cooper, the first black player to be drafted by an NBA club.[6] With that, Auerbach effectively broke down the color barrier in professional basketball.[3]

    In that year, the core of the Celtics consisted of Hall-of-Fame center Ed Macauley, Auerbach's old favorite McKinney, and an unlikely addition, Cousy. Cousy had refused to report to the club that had drafted him (ironically, the Blackhawks, Auerbach's old club), and because his next team (the Chicago Stags) folded, he ended up with the Celtics.
