    In Response to Re: Johnson #1 trade:
    The 6’10, 220-pound glass of water can run the floor, jump, and possesses a wingspan that would bring a smile to Jay Bilas’s face. During his senior year at Purdue, Johnson extended his jump shot range and became the Big Ten’s Player of the Year. He used a diverse offensive game and explosive athleticism to score more than 20 points per game as a senior, and defended well enough to be named the Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year. He also shoot 80% from the line.

    You do realize that Marshon Brooks already has the NBA size to play his position and also has the same wingspan...

    But hopefully this JJJ kid works out.  Brooks didn't look like he could adjust to not handling the ball constantly and starting.  He didn't look like someone who could come off the bench and only take 5 shots per game...

    Brooks has the potential to be a great scorer in NBA and would help behind Allen and PP right way. I don't think that was a good trade, Ainge should have kept Marshon Brooks. Too bad...

    In Response to Re: Johnson #1 trade : Screw Brooks, he's a New Jersey Net who can't defend.

    Yea but his thing (scoring) instantly translates into the NBA (on a team like New Jersey where he can start and shoot a lot more often)

    If Johnson needs to bulk up first, his defensive prowess won't help right away.

    We'll see.  I like it.  They got what they needed (size).  I still hope they can sign Chandler or (much more likely) Dalembert

    Kirk6, totally agree.  Brooks appeared to be a scorer but nothing else (not a passer or a defender).  However, the Celtics need capable big men.  JJJ seems to be an athletic big man who has decent offensive skills and can defend.

    It's a great accomplishment to be the Big Ten Conference Player of the Year AND the Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

    If all JJJ needs to do to improve is get stronger, then I'm happy with the pick.  Now, only if we got lucky enough to see Jeremy Tyler still on the board at #55 that would be even better (oh well, Charlotte just took him).

    So the Cs keep him then how do you address their biggest need which is a big who can defend? Marshon is good but guys his size are a lot easier to come by then a 6 10 athletic guy who can defend score and shoots over 80% from the line....

    Well, there's nobody left in the draft that has a prayer of making the team...why bother.  kinda bummed with the JaJuan trade, but I hope he fills out and pans out.

    Let's see how Moore pans out first. He could catch on if he plays the PG position and can defend.

    Great post, true marshon is a very good scorer, but the guy had one of the worst usage rates (avg 18fg attempts a game)  the least he could do is drop 25. He aint gonna get more than  5-8 shots a game with the cs. On a team like the the nets he might put up some numbers though. As far as Johnson I really like the pick hes very long,athletic a good weakside defender and can really shoot the mid range shot.  He really fits a need too.

    I think this was a ho-hum draft.  This must be a very small part of the plan Doc and DA have in mind.

    In Response to Re: Johnson #1 trade : You think he'll start ahead of Morrow?
    Posted by Mployee8


    Why do you love Morrow so much?

    Ray Allen is not only the best shooter in the NBA today, he also has an expiring contract that would help the Celtics clear cap space in 2012. Trading Ray Allen is a stupid idea. Just saying?

    Ray Allen = Humphries/Petro/Morrow


    NJ does this trade as it gives them two legit stars and helps them attract another FA in Gasol, Nene, West, Dalembert, Chandler, etc
