  • Forum Post: Celtics signing McGee

    Posted 03/05/2015 10:57:15 EST

    He and Zeller can man the 5 and let KO and Bass play the 4.  He adds a dimension the C's don't have, and for the cost it's totally worth it.  Expectations are low right now, so whatever he brings is p more »

    Posted 03/04/2015 10:02:02 EST

    He isn't shooting great but he isn't playing terribly.  He can only improve offensvely. My post was meant to say to the OP that we should compare the 46th pick versus the 6th pick somewhere down the l more »

    Posted 03/04/2015 08:01:47 EST

    It may be true that RC needs seasoning, but it's hard to see him sitting in Pawtuckett (Providence?) for too long.  Betts has less experience than RC and he too could use some seasoning, or at least p more »

    I am willing to give this some time to see how it plays out with Smart.  Call me crazy.

    Posted 03/04/2015 07:45:29 EST

    If the money is right, I would have him in.  It all depends a bit on what they think about Dobson and Boyce's offseasons and whether they're going to hold on to Amendola and Tyms.  I think LaFell is t more »

  • Forum Post: BB's biggest mistake?

    Posted 03/03/2015 11:19:29 EST

    The Pats should go the extra mile to retain Revis or they may be starting another long search to find a difference-maker at CB. It is probable that some team (Jets?) will be hel1 bent on acquiring him more »

  • Forum Post: The Next RIM-Protecting Center

    Posted 02/24/2015 01:09:00 EST

    The C's will have cap space.  I could see DA taking a shot at a Jordan, Asik or a Mozgov to platoon with Zeller at the 5 and then using the draft picks on the best players available, maybe a SF/PF.  S more »

  • Forum Post: which player would you prefer?

    Posted 02/24/2015 01:01:45 EST

    Harvin already got his ring with Seattle.  I am thinking money probably means more to him at this point.  Does anyone else think that Amendola could probably make more more $ after his restructure in more »

    Posted 02/20/2015 08:11:44 EST

    Sounds like the Colts needed an excuse to fail.  BB is inside the head of everyone in that orgainisation.  Everyone knew going into the Colts game (Colts included) that it could get ugly.  And it did. more »

    I don't see how Dragic fits this team at this point.  They aren't good enough to legitimatley contend, and by the time they are he'll be in his early 30's -- assuming they could even get him to re-sig more »

    I would take Mankins back in a heartbeat -- assuming he has anything left in the tank.  I don't fault him for taking a hard line stance re: his contract.  That's old news.  He's seen what it's like to more »

    Posted 02/12/2015 01:48:57 EST

    I think Cauley-Stein would be a good get as a rebounder and shot blocker and he and Zeller would be a nice combo at the 5.  That way Sullinger can stay at the 4 and Olynyk can come off the bench at th more »

    I see flashes from Smart as a player.  Whatever he ends up being, it's probably not a pure PG though.  There's a lot of promise, he will get better, this is year 1 and he does a number of things well. more »

    I have watched the play at least 100 times from every conceivable angle.  Great effort by Browner and Butler.  If you look at when Wilson threw the ball, you realise that Butler had to make a perfect more »
