    In response to UWhuskiesAJM's comment: We should be focused on signing both star players and building through the draft...  I understand conceptually that GMs are trying to keep their jobs but people more »

    DA is year 2 into a rebuilding programme.  Give it some time.  Assuming you think rebuilding is the way to go (not all do), also realise it takes time, draft picks and expiring contracts to make large more »

  • Forum Post: Gerald Wallace

    Posted 07/21/2014 04:02:40 EDT

    Gerald Wallace does nothing to advance this team's agenda.  They're looking to develop young guys.  I don't think they care about placating Wallace by giving him minutes.  Don't get me wrong, I always more »

  • Forum Post: Still sick about the 2nd round pick

    Posted 07/21/2014 03:53:56 EDT

    BB is good at drafting TEs?  He drafted enough of them over the years so I would hope he'd unearth a few good ones!  He drafted Dan Graham and Watson in the first round.  Both solid but not spectacula more »

  • Forum Post: Rondo Turns Off Free-Agents?

    Posted 07/17/2014 10:14:58 EDT

    The first step to getting back to being relevant is to have at least two young-ish, established stars to build around.  If DA trades Rondo then he's back at square 1 -- hoping he can land a centerpiec more »

  • Forum Post: Bosh denied HOU. And now HOU is interested in Rondo. What could they possible offer us?

    Posted 07/14/2014 04:52:55 EDT

    Rondo gets amnestied?  There is a better chance of seeing Santa Claus riding a purple unicorn up Savin Hill Beach on Labour Day.  Rondo is their best player and an asset.  They either sign him, sign-a more »

  • Forum Post: What player would help us?

    Posted 07/14/2014 09:28:54 EDT

    A team that had little shot at winning the lottery last year won it.  It's a crap shoot to simply rely on the lottery.  If the C's go out and try to win games next year -- fine.  They won't win many o more »

    In response to CubanPete's comment: Young was a stupid pick. It's indicative of how inept team management is.   ...the King of the Rumba Beat... [object HTMLDivElement]   A lot of draft boards had him more »

  • Forum Post: Would MN send Love to Clev w/o Wiggins included in deal?

    Posted 07/12/2014 11:51:15 EDT

    Think about Wiggins and his one year of college.  He was inconsistent.  He didn't dominate all the time, great games here and there.  In some of KU's biggest games he was practically invisible.  I jus more »

  • Forum Post: Marcus Thornton not going to play a minute in a Celtic uniform ?

    Posted 07/11/2014 11:47:29 EDT

    Taking on Thornton's deal is meant as a strategy to clear space for next year if his contract expires or to help in the acquisition of a player via trade who will be here long term, either now or at t more »

  • Forum Post: Thornton is better than advertised

    Posted 07/11/2014 10:29:53 EDT

    I'm guessing that since this team is in rebuild mode that Thornton will not get a lot of minutes and is counting the seconds until he can leave town.  He may not even be here past the summer.  Danny w more »

  • Forum Post: Smart looked like a stud today

    Posted 07/11/2014 10:24:50 EDT

    All I'll add is that Smart doesn't need to be jacking threes.  I get that it's summer league and he's working on his form and getting used to the three point line.  He can get to anywhere on the floor more »

  • Forum Post: Tyler Zeller

    Posted 07/11/2014 10:16:54 EDT

    At worst, Zeller is a low cost 5 who can probably play 25+ mins. and average 8 points and 5 rebounds.  They got the guy as a trade throw-in but he happens to actually have some skill and fills a need. more »

  • Forum Post: Celts Get T.Zeller and Marcus Thornton

    Posted 07/09/2014 10:51:07 EDT

    LeBron homecoming?  Good for us.  We get an expiring contract, a big man and a pick.  Good move by Danny.

  • Forum Post: I Like It! Use the Trade Exception DA!

    Posted 07/09/2014 08:33:50 EDT

    I thought the TPE couldn't be used on multiple players?  And wouldn't DA want to use it to acquire an expiring contract if he can't use it to land a player who fits here?  It seems there are multiple more »

  • Forum Post: Smart has not looked that good

    Posted 07/09/2014 08:31:03 EDT

    I watched both summer league games multiple times.  Smart comes as advertised on the defensive end.  He can handle the ball and distribute just fine like a PG.  It seems like he's getting used to the more »

  • Forum Post: Celtics resign AB

    Posted 07/03/2014 09:01:49 EDT

    What I don't get is that the same people who want the Celts to pursue Chandler Parsons and pay the guy whatever he wants ignore the fact that Jeff Green is essentially the same player - a little older more »

  • Forum Post: Houston or Finch?

    Posted 07/03/2014 08:45:35 EDT

    It will take a strong training camp to unseat Bolden in my opinion.  He does lots of things well.  He's a jack-of-all trades RB who, while not great, knows the offense, plays special teams and could s more »

  • Forum Post: Celtics resign AB

    Posted 07/02/2014 11:51:44 EDT

    Bradley has turned out to be a pretty good pick and a superb find at 19.  His career to date supports that he should have gone in the lottery, he is worthy of a top ten pick for the year he was drafte more »

  • Forum Post: Celtics resign AB

    Posted 07/02/2014 11:38:03 EDT

    AB may have been overpaid, not based on talent but on his ability to be an 82 game contributor.  He's had a lot of injuries for a guy that young.  But you know what?  The C's slightly overpaid for a g more »

    If the Celts can get some veteran talent to add to their core (core is Rondo...?) I am sure they could find a passable big man/rim protector.  Doesn't make sense to add a Gortat until they markedly im more »

  • Forum Post: Why Smart was a smart decision

    Posted 06/27/2014 04:29:20 EDT

    I like this pick.  He will be a good and (potentially very good) player.  I would be shocked if he isn't a contributor next year and a long term core player.

    Like people say about Belichick and Brady, let's see how good the Spurs are post-Duncan.  That guy is arguably the best PF of all time.  I like how the Spurs find players, sure, but even at his age a more »

  • Forum Post: Question all fans - Was Ellsbury worth it?

    Posted 06/24/2014 08:22:01 EDT

    Most fans realise that Ells' performance could make letting him go look like the wrong decision early in the deal.  Conversely, it's hard to judge a player on a long term deal 70 something games into more »
