Only for Butler or any other "superstar" scorer to help IT...except Melo, no thanks. I'd rather the C's keep the high draft pick and either trade it before/during the draft, or draft another future start to develop with Smart & Brown, and the other youngins.Dee4Three wrote:What are your thoughts on the Boston Celtics this season?
lolNets. I'm in disbelief that the Celtics are at the top of the conference and in the running for the #1 draft pick. I don't see the team (confidently) beating the Cavs/Warriors/Spurs in a 7 game series, but I do think it'd go 7 games.
You said you wanted a rim protector, IMO we're hurting at the 3 for scoring. I think Brown will develop to a nice player, but I'd love to see a scoring forward come over to help IT....I just don't really want to give anyone up....or the picks.
TBH, at least from this year, I'd rather keep Amir than get Ibaka.

IMO you're going to need bradley for those teams otherwise a lot of pressure will be on the rest of the defense because IT can't defend.
air gordon wrote:there's no doubt IT will be playing big minutes and putting up big numbers on offense
its just something to consider... as well as per 82games.com the most successful lineups (and have the most minutes stephens has given) the celts have this year include bradley

and just to add regarding IT's defense. he ranks last amongst PGs in Nba defensive real plus minus
still some time for boston to make a move.

Without a 3rd team, it'd have to be Amir + AB/Zeller + Smart/Olynyk
And I'm sure a pick would be in there too.......not enough Ainge magic in this for me to go for it.

I originally saw the replay on Instagram. Watching it again there, yeah, there's some contact but not a lot. Even if it's enough for a foul, the late whistle still looks bad. Snake bites should be foul calls, but watching it again, probably not quite enough force and contact there.
