    If the team is not better this year (higher seed in playoffs, more wins) I'll be surprised.  You can't judge a rebuilding plan before the job is accomplished.  To sit here and judge every move DA make more »

    In response to billge's comment: All NBA GMs are great.  Thats why all teams finish with a winning record if you know better than DA, then why are you here?  Clearly, the guy has had no success and ha more »

    Band wagoners who know better than an NBA GM.  Don't let the door hit you.

    Step one on the road to becoming a better player for Sullinger is getting in shape so he can play 32 mpg.  Hire a trainer and a nutritionist.  Step two is convincing him to stop jacking threes and to more »

    Honestly, what can he say?  He takes responsibility for where this team is, let's give him credit there.  But there seems to be a trend where the Sox overpay for FA talent (Crawford, Sandoval, Ramirez more »

    I posted this elsewhere, but I feel like Rozier has the tools to be a better combo guard than Bradley because he may be able to give this team legit minutes at the 1. Rozier can get anywhere on the fl more »

    Of the comps, Mickey seems to be a blend.  He can rebound, he is not offensively inept, he can block shots and he is athletic.  Ratliff was a physical specimen but Mickey is better offensively based o more »

    He's an interesting player, trying to think of a comp but none comes to mind.  A more efficient and under control version of Josh Smith?  Mickey might not be as athletic as Smith but he is an undersiz more »

    Rondo needs to realise that he needs the Kings as much as they need him.  He needs to reestablish himself and if he gets his head on straight he could provide leadership to a young, talented team.  I more »

    Seems the Celts have recognised that they have a  2nd round find.  They are trying to lock him up according to Yahoo.  Looks like a guy who can help out now and who could get better.

    Young is, well, still young.  A little competition will either bring out the best in him or further relegate him to the end of the bench.  I think it's apparent that Hunter has shown more in summer le more »

    He's looked solid.  If he can continue to develop his jump shot he could be a very nice find.  Nice upside for a 2nd rounder.  I know it's summer league, but it's an important indicator for a young gu more »

    Posted 07/13/2015 01:53:19 EDT

    Coach dad was saying he's a better passer than shooter - which I thought was hype.  Have to say for a guy picked where he was he seems to have a good all-around skill set, including passing.  I've hea more »

    Some thoughts about Marcus after watching him in summer league: I agree that his decision-making is better and he is definitely more of a vocal floor general than he was last year.  He was playing off more »

    The Nets are in transition, hopefully at the right time for the Celts to cash in.  I have seen Joe Johnson's name out there in trade rumours as well.  The Nets are trying to shed payroll and get young more »

    I think it's discussion-worthy.  If Dallas trades its best (2nd best?) player to gets its #1 back, that should put them in a better position to land a top pick.  On the other hand, Boston can gamble t more »

    I thought Wallace was relatively optimistic while here despite the fact that his resume in Boston probably had more DNP CDs than minutes played.  I hope he gets to GS and can play some minutes for the more »

    DA needs to control what he can control - his coach, his roster (and salaries), and his draft picks - so he can build a war chest of assets and maintain his flexibility.  This will allow him to either more »

    I'd rather David Lee and his expiring deal for Wallace and other flotsam.  Have read that this move would save GS some dollars and it would give the C's a functional big man even if would add to the # more »

    I'd rather DA bide his time and not tie up money for the sake of filling the roster.  He is keeping this roster fluid so he can react.  If Brad can develop young talent along the way even better.  The more »
