Re: How I See the Celtics Draft Going Down

In response to Eldunker's comment:
But at this point, I think Danny should trade down to late first round and add a second round pick because there is not much separation between another half dozen scorers, With a trade down late first round pick - several of the following players and much needed scorers will be available: Crabbe, Franklin, Bullock, Canaan, Hardaway, and Rice. PG Schrodoeder should also be available, but I see us selecting an outside shooter.
My first round pick even at #16 would be Antetokumpo, an athletic still growing 18 year old 6'10" PG (yes PG!!), SF or PF from Greece and if we had a second rounder, I pick Leido, a 6'6" SG from Providence. Both very high risk, very high reward. I take the chance because none of the other picks after the first 11 are solid bets to make it.
You just wrote this on another thread;
"I'm proud of you Danny. Let me count the ways...
Horrible over-paid multi-year and untradeable contract for Bass (a bench player)
Horrible over-paid multi-year and untradeable contract for Terry (a has-been liability)
Horrible over-paid multi-year and untradeaable contract for Lee (an under-performer)
Both first round and second pick form 2011 draft a complete waste (as were first round picks in 2009 and 2008). Keeping fingers crossed with 2012 Sully's health and 2010 Bradley's needed improvement.
Chased our starting center out of town before last season (Doc with contributory nergligence)
Speaking of centers... inability to land a decent starting center for the last two...going on three years.
Allowed Ray Allen to walk (contributory negligence from Rondo and his puppet Doc)
Leaving an over-paid Garnett and Pierce to rot on a nonplayoff team in 2013?
Inability to complete much needed trades, acquire quality FA, or draft impact players to rebuild the team in a reasonable time frame.
Maybe you can still work a deal and get LaFrentz, Szczerbiak or Dickdau back here!!!
Danny first round picks: Johnson, Hudson, Giddens, Telfair/Ratfill via trade, Gerald the head-case, Troy Bell and Marcus Banks. Every a blind squirral gets lucky Danny Boy!!! Congrats on AJ at least (and maybe Sully and Bradley)."
You'd be the 1st idiot whining about Danny if he took your advice and came up snake eyes ... Jeesh!!!
