    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.

     

     



    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.

    No, not challenging YOU, just your opinion on how things are shaking out. I will not call you a moron either. You have your opinion but it really has no logic. That is all I am saying. And trust me, I am far longer than you ever thought of being. And you need to read ALL the posts. I was not the one that said I would give you a cookie...said I admired your S P U N K  but that was getting us no place but in a world of mediocracy.

    Re: Why win a game?

    Its called karma.  We tried the whole blatant tanking thing and both times we got screwed. This time we played hard all season.

    "The Celtics have now played a whopping 48 games that were within five points in the final minutes (that's a whopping 60.8 percent of the team's season schedule). That's tied for the second-highest total of such contests in the league, but Boston's .313 winning percentage (15-33) is second-worst behind only basement-dwelling Milwaukee (.231)."

    I understand odds and %s. But what most fail to realize is at the end of the day you STILL have to get lucky. If you have the 3rd worst record YOUR odds are that you DONT GET A TOP 3 PICK. (42%)

    Obv the cs cant do worse than 3rd and even then your still not likely to get a top 3 pick.

    The way the lotto is set up is exactly that a lottery. If they gave more %s to the worst teams that would even cause more tanking. Then I would agree that yesterdays win was a "bad" thing.

    But by playing the game the right way maybe the celtics have created some good karma and they will be rewarded.

    Re: Why win a game?

    It's not really about the chances of getting the top pick that are important, it's the chances of how bad your pick can be.  4th worst record and the worst you could do is 7th, 5th=8th, 6th=9th.  We already saw this happen in 2007.  If we win against the 76rs and lose a coin flip we could end up with the 9th pick. That would be a true disaster.  Forget about any chance at an all-star player at that point.  This draft is top heavy, not deep.

    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.

     

    [/QUOTE]


    Exactly ... that's why I never fell for the "build thru the draft" nonsense. Which one of these top 4-5 players can be banked upon as "cornerstones?"  I don't see any sure bets ... maybe one or two pan out in 2-4 years but who needs to wait that long if you can get Love or another superstar now. And Lord knows they have no intention in doing this again ... Especially with Brad at the helm. Sitting back with cocktail in hand and steak on the barbie waiting to see the fireworks display ... Cheers!

    [/QUOTE]

    So another franchise is going to trade us an allstar for one of these non sure bet cornerstones? 

    Maybe Minnesota ? Love is a good player but, did he bring his team close to the playoffs ?  They're 7 game back Of the last spot. Love is a step in the right direction but, if you give up too much for him you're stuck in mediocrity.

    So another franchise is going to trade us an allstar for one of these non sure bet cornerstones? 

    Maybe Minnesota ? Love is a good player but, did he bring his team close to the playoffs ?  They're 7 game back Of the last spot. Love is a step in the right direction but, if you give up too much for him you're stuck in mediocrity.

      Minnesota tanked for years.  They have been horrible.  Now they have made it to mediocrity.  Even letting a couple of free agents walk, Minny will be over the salary cap going into the off-season.  Unless they get lucky in the lottery, after not tanking, they will likely draft 13.

    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.

    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.

    Exactly ... that's why I never fell for the "build thru the draft" nonsense. Which one of these top 4-5 players can be banked upon as "cornerstones?"  I don't see any sure bets ... maybe one or two pan out in 2-4 years but who needs to wait that long if you can get Love or another superstar now. And Lord knows they have no intention in doing this again ... Especially with Brad at the helm. Sitting back with cocktail in hand and steak on the barbie waiting to see the fireworks display ... Cheers!

    Actually, kevin love has NEVER made the playoffs. Offensive only bigs are overrated in this league. Kevin love is not that much better than big al, who is on his 4th teams now. A guy who can get you 20 and 10 but provides no defense.  What is the benefit of putting up 20 if you give up 20 on the other end?

    Re: Why win a game?

    I've been watching and listening to this team's games since 1960...I shared season tickets with my brother for years in both the old Garden and the TD Garden...no one here can tell me that what they did last night was the absolute dumbest thing they've done all year...hands down the dumbest...there are times when you win by losing and lose by winning...this was one of those times...

    If this was the middle of the season, I'd say, yeah, fight your butts off and do everything you can to win, to set the tone for the future because we know we suck and we will only get better by trying hard against good teams and by getting better players....well, that was 40 games ago...there are 4 games left...NOTHING can be taught in the final 4 games that shouldn't already been learned..period...They fought the good fight and have nothing to be ashamed of...until now...until they have declared themselves idiots before the world...and that's what they are right now...IDIOTS!

    Get over that!

    Be smart at the right time...it's also a very valuable lesson to learn...they obviously haven't learned that.

    Dude...where have you been during all these games...root for them all you want, but the people you see here posting have been on these games threads night in and night out....I haven't seen your screen name here in ages...that doesn't mean you don't root for the green...I'm sure you do...but if you were one of the "we're getting into the playoffs this year" folks, you were quite wrong...if that's you, your right to root is as good as anyone else here...you judgement about the team and what it should do isn't...established fact if that's the case...if not, no offense meant...root on, and I'm with you....I just want them to lose the last few games they have...they can only lose by winning at this point.

    I am baffled by the fact that you can't understand simple logic.  You must not know what sacrifice is.  By losing one game, you have a better chance of landing a player who could potentially be a factor in winning hundreds more.
