    Because Ainge failed to trade Bradley before the deadline. That, or Wic doesn't want to upset the season ticket holders.

    Either is inexcuseable.

    Re: Why win a game?

    This season has been a joke and the win tonight set the Franchise back many years. It makes me sick watching the idioots walking around after the game like they just won Game 7 of the Finals. VERY DISAPPOINTING.

    Worse yet, we are playing Philly the game after next.  You've got to be concerned that there is a good possibility that we will be tied with the Lakers for the 5th worse record when it is all said and done.  So we could easily be picking 6th after the Lakers.

     Why win a game?  Ooh Ooh Mr Kottear!  I know this one.  Because a game was played. 

    DEAL WITH IT.

    Oh Scubber, I was depressed enough but you are right on the money. I hope there is a trade in the works for pick. If not, it will be the same thing next year and I would assume for quite some time to come. Stevens does not realize this now but if this is how the chips fall, he can look back to this year when he is looking for another College job. And the Celts will be locked into another 20 year slow death.

    That is how some of us deal with it, by rationalizing how pointless the win was.

     Pointless.  I've seen the Celtics win game 7's and lose.  I want them to win because they are my favorite team.  The Celtic's will have ping pong balls. That's already a fact.  I hope they win that too.

    Re: Why win a game?

    Worst thing about this season is Vitor Favorani's injury after a exciting 37 or so games and D League appearances. Like with Sullinger, it's frustrating to see a promising rookie only have half a rookie season ......good to see K OLY's bony body hold up for a whole NBA season and see Phil Pressey earn his paycheck with all the innngs he's eaten up this season....

    2ND worst thing about this season was the inaction at the deadline......

    Loving that there' s only 3 games left, nice win tonight, don't think there's going to be any 4 game winning streaks to end the season, Celtics are top 4 , possibly top 3.........

    I like our chances on draft night with 2 #1 picks plus the $10.3M trade exception thing, betting on Ainge to cash in and be a player on draft night

    VT, I am not trying to be controversial here at all but the win was a loss. It is common knowledge that there are 3 gems in this draft {Embiid, Wiggins and Parker} who can turn a franchise around and this win cost the C's chances of winning the lottery by a bunch. You do not want to win anymore than any of us do but losing is for the greater good. And if you are old enough to live during the 20 year drought that followed Bird's Teams then you should know how much that suxed.

    Danny managed to get the trainer to hold RR out tonight and possibly against the Cavs next game but Brad didn't do anything to help the cause ... namely Anthony over Hump.

    Unless we get lucky with the ping pong balls the I can see Danny drafting a big (Randle, Vonleh or Gordon) for Minny to replace Love.

    [/QUOTE]

    I hope you are right Mployee8. That seems like the only route at this point. Celts are becoming that team that is a day late and a dollar short and if they think they are going to build through the draft without a Cornerstone player out of this draft, IMO they are sadly mistaken. They will be a liitle better next year so this was our chance to strike gold and we just stepped over a dollar to pick up a dime.

     20 year drought.  Yeah, I was here before that. Celtic fan since Dave Cowens was a player.  When the ball goes up in the air, get it.  Let the chips fall where they may.

    pitiful win. i'm most upset at the Bobcats who laid an egg vs a bad team with the 6th seed on the line. now they may have to face Indiana or Miami in round one as a 7th seed. and i hope that happens because they deserve it. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Yeah 911. It just made no sense at all. Come all this way to end up with nothing. I feel another 20 year drought on the way unelss Ainge can pull a rabbit out of his azz.

      I am aware that every MORON on the board will forever claim that the Celtics could have had whatever player turns out to be the best one if they had only lost a few more.

      What's wrong Elmo?  You challenge, for no reason, how long I have been a Celtic fan and then act badly when finding out that the answer is longer than you.  Perhaps, you should have the cookie Jr., I insist.
