    If Okafor is the real deal, he will be better than anyone on the current C's roster.  I've seen him compared to Tim Duncan - time will tell with that, but he looks like a good player. LA is a better F more »

    If Ainge can't get a player that he covets with either pick I have no doubt he'll grab the most talented player regardless of position.  He's shown a willingness to draft a player despite roster redun more »

    It seems that in the NFL the news story is too often about the commissioner and his incompetence, his bungling of high profile matters or his heavy-handedness in dealing with teams at times when his c more »

    Sweet and Dandy or 54-46 are classics too.  Or is your Pressure Drop a reference to how Goodell is feeling?

    In response to cole-ely's comment: Marcus doesn't have the fastest first step. I see him more like backing people down or posting them up like mark jackson. Jackson got a ton of his assists out of the more »

    Just to remind myself that this is about the NFL having an agenda to "get" the Pats and to make Brady look bad by trying to catch him in a lie, I harken back to what Jeff Blake said about footballs: " more »

    In response to CubanPete's comment: What saddens me is that some of the Cs fans here are just as dumb as the trolls. Young shot 34.9% on 3s and didn't play any D at Kentucky but he's got upside. Marcu more »

    I really like Young's game.  He could be a deadly spot up shooter and he has enough mobility and handle to get his own shot.  He showed enough in the NBADL at 19 y.o. to make me think that he will get more »

    This whole thing is about two sides (Pats, NFL) with two separate agendas trying to conclusively pin the mistakes, inconsistencies and the blame on one another (or mother nature) when the standards an more »

    I think the main reason Spikes left is because he wanted to be a internet personality, and because he felt like he was being pigeon holed as a run stopper.  I think the main reason the Pats let him wa more »

    I say this every year only to be pummeled by the draft guys around here, but the draft is an inexact science and you have a better chance to guess the weather than to accurately predict how Billy Bice more »

    If Sullinger is smart he gets in the best shape of his life so he can get the most money he can from what will probably be his biggest contract.  Hopefully the Celtics don't fall for it though and ove more »

    Not sure he is the rim protector we all think this team needs.  Not sure he could even back up Zeller, who himself should probably be a backup.

    Everybody wondered what would become of Rondo post Big 3.  It's clear that with a full complement of stars and playing for a player's coach in Doc that he was at his best.  I thought he'd be better th more »

    The argument around trading Ryan Mallett was that since he was supposed to be a high ceiling QB he was worth more than #3 where he was drafted.  Problem is, there was no tape on him, and ultimately th more »

    Cherry picking players from past drafts and saying "BB missed on this guy" is just not productive.  If BB missed on a guy picked in the 200's, then the whole league missed on the same guy because if h more »

    This is a good thread, and I agree with the OP's premise.  I wrote on a similar thread (BB as HC) that it cannot be glossed over that BB identified, drafted, developed and entrusted Brady to run this more »
