It's won them some games and kept them in others, so I'm not sure that it is. If there is a downside, it's that it isn't always going to be enough, but that speaks to other problems with the team, or blunders they've made in crunch time.

Caught the end of the game against the Warriors, great win for the Celtics there. The Splash Brothers are admittedly misfiring in the fourth as of late, but credit to the Celtics for turning it up when it mattered, going on that run and forcing all those turnovers.

Avery Bradley's defense in the fourth quarter was top notch. He was harassing Curry all over the floor, and was causing so many turnovers and rushed shots. He also hit that sweet mid range clutch jumper at the end.

Jae Crowder with the two beautiful 3 point bombs off of Offensive Rebounds at the end of the game, clutch. One of them was because GSW doubled Horford (Horford was being guarded by Klay Thompson), and he kicked it out, and Crowder made them pay.

Kelly Olynyk (+29 btw) with some awesome offensive fire power, KO has been growing on me, I feel like he is getting better and better as the season goes on. Did anybody see that sweet ball/dribble fake he pulled off in the 4th quarter en route to a dunk? He faked Iggy out big time. Nice to have a big guy that can do that.

I.T. With the big clutch 3, and deferring when he needed to. I'm glad he didn't force the issue, he relied on his teammates when he was guarding tight. Good stuff.

And of course Horford with his hustle, and his high basketball IQ. And Smart with his hustle plays (And sweet bounce pass to Olynyk, and sweet tweener pullup from like 7 feet).

I liked what Steven did with the rotations this game, and maybe what I.T. said made an impact on that. It was nice to NOT see James Young out there in the 4th, Jerebko played a bit to long for my liking in the 4th, but other than that it was solid.

How nice was it to see Boston win (And Curry SUCK in the 4th) after he talked smack to Jaylen Brown after that buzzer beating 3 in the third? Awesome. Draymond Green as his usually talking crap self after a couple of his dunks. The Warriors have turned into a bunch of babies it seems, I remember when they won the title in 14-15, they were humble and I don't remember them complaining so much. They seem to complain about everything, and show off WAY more than they should. Curry was acting like a baby about his reach in at the end of the game, when he CLEARLY reached in across the offensive players arms, it was a clear foul. Also, watching Livingston shoot that 13 foot fadeaway with completely blue sky and not even hit rim... wow... be cause that IS his shot. The Warriors looked like a wreck in the 4th.

Love seeing the Celtics healthy and showing what they can do. I'm really looking forward to seeing how we play as we get closer to the playoffs.

I know what you mean. I was hoping they'd win in 2015 when it came down to the Finals and was glad that they did, but since then, there's been too much flexing and preening. I certainly enjoyed the 3-1 collapse, though with the way LeBron's been acting this year, I'm dreading the thought of yet another rematch, as I really don't want to see either of them winning another title. Spurs-Celtics would actually be my preferred matchup.

I mean, I'd obviously prefer the Bulls to be in a position to be competing for the title, but that's just not realistic right now, so Spurs-Celtics is this year's "if not my favourite team, then them" preference for me.

Big W vs the Wizards last night. I was reading an article on RedsArmy called "Green Envy", it captures what the opposing teams fans/bloggers say about the Celtics. It seems that most people in Washington don't even think they are on the Celtics level.

Being a Celtics fan... I do NOT want to see Celtics vs Heat in the first round. That scares the crap out of me.

We may get that #1 seed, but I think a series against the heat is 50-50 the way they have played the second half of the season.

I don't think anyone wants to face the heat in the 1st round.

I'd love to see the bulls against the Celtics. Great narratives of Rondo against his former team and also the butler possibility of being in Boston next year

So, do you trade the pick? What would you guys like to see the Celtics do in the offseason?

I am completely torn, I actually have to admit that I am find of Fultz now... his upside is tremendous...

Do you think the Cavs moving will be 100% moving Love. and that Boston has a good play for him?

The Hayward situation? Blake Griffin?

So much going on... if I was Ainge I'd be losing my mind.

Who would you want to get for the number one pick? It's obviously not something to give up too readily.

the celtics trading the pick would be the dumbest thing ever. like i said before, there is not a single player in the nba that makes us good enough to win the championship right now so why throw away the future? what would the goal of trading the pick be? coming in 2nd place at best and even that is a long shot. sure there is no guarantee that the top pick will be a career all star but i want them to take the chance he will be so we will be ready to win when someone else in this league can actually win. if i am the celtics i trade thomas instead of letting him walk because there is no fucking way i max the dude

Here is my opinion...

I think you keep Fultz, because with his enormous upside... I just don't see him being a big risk. I wasn't sold at first, but after watching a bunch of full games of him playing, his ceiling is so high. He has amazing body control, he is really good at creating space, he's confident as all hell, he is very athletic (more athletic than I originally thought), his finishing around the rim will translate very well to the NBA. I don't care that his team had a losing record, it impacts my opinion ZERO. When you put his talent, his skillset, with the right group around him, I bet he will be great.

If I had to forecast him as a comparison, MAX I would hope for a more athletic Chris Paul, MIN Jeff Teague. Again, that's what I hope. We have no idea what's going to happen. I think the big thing with a talent like Fultz, is that he gets the opportunity (Minutes) early on, so he can make mistakes and learn from them.

I say keep the pick.

I also want to see a big jump from Jaylen Brown, who showed flashed of how good he could be in the league.

If the Celtics sign Hayward outright, draft fultz, cash in their serviceable assets (add Brooklyn pick if necessary ) for a legit frontcourt player, the Celtics would be contenders for sure

Not sold on idea Hayward makes the Celtics any better than Isaiah. But perhaps Hayward's best years are ahead while Isaiah has reached his peak.

Nah no worries, I remembered there was a Celtics thread, used forum search but I barely found it myself, had to repeatedly tweak the search functions just to narrow the search results. Found 3, one was locked, one was mostly a spam thread, and that one by Jao.

Up to the moderators anyway if they'll merge or the current thread stays as the new one for everything Celtics.

IT'S FUCKING HAPPENING PEOPLE! WOJ BOMB!

https://twitter.com/wojverticalnba/stat ... 2982434817

Sources: Philadelphia is waiting on medical information on Markelle Fultz, but deep into talks on acquiring Boston's No. 1 overall pick.
Boston would acquire Sixers No. 3 overall pick in 2017 and package to include future first from Sixers, sources say.
Deal talks are far enough along that Fultz could be on his way to Philadelphia for a meeting Saturday, sources say.

Roto also says the Lakers like Fultz so much that they could try to move up to #1 with precondition Ingram being only untouchable player. It's a bidding war between the Lakers and 76ers.

It could be Lonzo or Josh to the Celtics after all. That wouldn't be bad at all actually if they could land another future 1st or D'Angelo/Julius in the process. :lol:



Ainge wouldn't be done. He is to enter a bid war for Blake Griffin. The Thunder's also in the mix it seems. Likely scenario though is he re-signs because $40 extra million for just 1 extra season in contract book.

I've spent what feels like too long getting hyped up for Fultz and building the best team possible in 3-4 years with Smart/Brown/Fultz/'18 Pick than trying to build around IT.

But F it, either way the team theoretically gets better than they were this year with a 1 seed.

Celtics trading the pick to Philly makes sense. Celtics don't need the talent that badly so they'll still get a good player plus some good future picks. I could see them being OK with taking whoever the lakers don't pick out of the 3

I might become a Warriors fan if we get Ball.

Do you think fultz, ball, and Jackson all share the same potential?

my opinion is the gap is close enough that landing one with additional assets (like 2 additional first rounders) is worth it. now i would prefer the kings pick over the lakers

Danny Ainge is channeling his inner Red Auerbach. Red wrote the book on wheeling, dealing and fleecing (see Robert Parrish & Kevin McHale).

This almost seems like a smokescreen to me. Ainge could be pitting Philly lala or whatever team wants fultz against each other

Welp.

I guess what he's doing makes sense. I just hope Fultz doesn't end up being a juggernaut in the NBA.

I dont like how there is no mention of the Bulls or that this trade will go down Monday.....was hoping that none of this would happen until it was time for the third pick so the Lakers can't fuck it all up.

There has not been a PG selected with the first 3 picks that has ended up being a bust, so IF this is happening, I'm waiting to see the upside.



OK, so. We get the Lakers pick next year if it is 2-5, otherwise it's the '19 Kings pick. Theoretically we could get 2 top 5 picks in next year's draft thanks to the Nets, and I believe we still have our own next year. So there is a safety net for giving up the #1 pick in an NBA draft.

Still feels dirty, but it's not my decision and I'm going to be a fan regardless (just, maybe, not as much if we get Ball).

So, is the '18 draft class projected to be deep?

man i went from rooting for fultz to rooting against him. i am only able to wish he has an ok career at best now as all the what if scenario's will fucking kill me if he turns into a hall of fame talent. still i like the deal however it worries me that the celtics will now offer thomas a max deal which will imo kill their chances of winning a championship

Plot-twist: Ainge only GM to know Silver is taking down the minimum age elegibility next year so he now has 2 possible top-5 picks for 2018 to pick one of Bagley, Porter, Mamba, Ayton & Doncic.

I'd only be interested if it was John Bagley and his wonderful beard.

Just simmed some seasons with 2K14. Drafted J.Jackson, signed Sullinger for a year (Griffin and Haywayrd came back to their own teams). At the trade deadline, I moved Bradley and LAC pick for Giles (picked 17th by Bucks). Landed 1(BKN) & 3(LAL) pick in 2018. Went with Doncic, Phoenix went with Porter at 2, I picked Ayton at 3. Let Thomas walk away and brought back smart cheap.

Current roster:
Doncic, Rozier, D. Jackson
Smart, F. Mason III
J. Jackson, Jae Crowder
J. Brown, Horford, Caleb Swanigan
Ayton, Giles
