    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the tie-breaker goes into effect only if NEITHER the Celtics NOR the Jazz get a top three pick after the ping-pong balls have stopped tumbling. If that should be the case, more »

    He's a tall, lithe, coordinated, 6'9" guy with big hands who can also run fast and jump high. These attributes are natural gifts. Having been introduced to basketball, he also learned how to shoot a j more »

    Is it fair to say that the ball moves better and there is more spacing without Rondo? 

    Fair or not, it does.

    Win or lose, the team made recognizably sound basketball plays when Pressey, Bayless, Olynyk, Sullinger and either Johnson or Babb took the floor. The two bigs cleared out of the block areas, they pas more »

    Guys, what energy? Bayless brings no energy. Just because he dribbles the hell out of the ball but gets nowhere with it doesn't mean he's an energy player. He can't defend at even a break even rate. M more »

    Please, no more "Let's keep Bayless" talk. He is maybe the most consistently careless and error-prone guard I've seen in years. Cannot make ANY basic plays. Is right up (down?) there with Bradley in t more »

    Listen to a lot of people here and you get the impression that simply drafting high will be the solution to all Celtic problems, i.e., a) that a top five pick is an automatic cure-all, b) that getting more »

    This 21 point game against the Lakers might look good to some people, but it was an empty 21. First, Green's plus/minus was -17. You could actually track it happening. Next, despite being 6'9", good l more »

    End of Suns game. One of thousands of examples of why Jeff Green just doesn't have it. Last shot by Rondo (admittedly bad), offensive rebound by Sullinger, put-back by Sullinger, defensive rebound by more »

    Go to your replay button and check the last few minutes of the 3rd quarter of the Suns game. And watch Green only. Holy cow! At that rate of interest and exertion, this "professional athlete" could be more »

    It may be that I grossly overvalue the art of passing the ball in basketball, but seeing Bradley, Bass, Green try to move the ball around the court to me is tantamount to sticking needles in my eyes. more »

        Exactly. You need to guard against it. The hyperbole machine was at one point in full overdrive on Olynyk, but he's looking shakier and shakier by the day. It seems truly burdesome for him to be p more »

    [/QUOTE] I agree with everything you said. I like his game. Me saying I didn't see anything "special" was a conscious attempt to combat hyperbole. I see him as a good bench guy who can play 15 to 20 m more »

    The operative term here is "value."   It sounds like a circular argument when we say that we want to get rid of a player whom we no longer value, while at the same time worrying about getting equal va more »

    Regardless of how long he stays with the team, Johnson tonight showed in 25 minutes more pure, intuitive basketball instinct than Bradley, Bass and Green collectively. He can score, he's athletic, he' more »

    To think, Avery Bradley was once neck and neck with John Wall as HS player of the year. If those pre-university evaluators were right, it begs question, "What the hell happened to him?" I prefer to th more »
