    Re: The Master Plan


    I agree completely. I think we will be in the running for Wiggins without a doubt. Philly, the Magic. the Suns and Boston will battle it out for the rights to draft the next franchise player. Even if we don't get Wiggins we will get a very good to great player. We could come out of this next draft with more than one great player if the cards were to fall the right way, or Danny trades a couple picks to move up.

    The Celts don't have to be the worst team in the league this coming season.

    Remember, the Cavs got a supposedly #8 pick from the Clips and Baron Davis for Mo Williams. After the lottery, that supposedly #8 pick turned into the #1 pick that turned out to be Kyrie Irving.

     

    Andrew Wiggins is a franchise player.

    There's no way Ainge is not thinking about Wiggins.

     

    It's just stupid to try to make this current Celtics team better just to battle for the 8th seed this coming season.

    Ainge is not stupid.

      4 teams won less than 26 games last season. If your prediction of 26 wins comes true we will be right there for Wiggins, and don't forget we're due for the ping pong balls to bounce our way.  I predict we will win 23 games this coming season. This year less means more for the C's.

    True.

    The last time the Celts had the #1 pick was back in 1950!

      OneOnOne is the only one old enough to remember when old Chuckie played for the Celtics.

    Signing Chris Kaman and Nick Young is a sign of a team grasping at straws.

    Re: The Master Plan

    Dumb comparison.  The Lakers and Celtics are in completely different situations to begin with.  The Lakers with Nash, Kobe and Gasol have to win now given their age and needed to few added pieces which may get them in playoff contention. Anything can happen then. 

    The Celtics are young, inexperienced and are lottery bound no matter how you cut it.  It would be stupid for the Celtics to invest in players this year.  Danny will observe which players are keepers, which players are compatable with Stevens and his system, and invest in FA after this season.  The shallow and uniformed may call it tanking.  But its simply intelligent team building.

    Re: The Master Plan

    I don't know about you guys but aside from waiting till next year's draft I'd like to see something happen with the 2/3 spots. Can't see Wallace being here too long and we need a guy at the 3 that can shoot, rebound and defend behind Green. We need a deadly shooter at the 2 spot to stretch the floor and I think Lee can be better this year and Brooks is intriguing but I'm not sold on Crawford.


    Since the Pelicans picked up my man Anthony Morrow I'd like to propose another Georgetown product to fill the 2/3 with size. Hollis Thompson was an undrafted signee by OKC in 2012 and did a year at their DL affiliate. This summer he played for the Spurs and didn't see much time until the final game when he was given plenty of time over the regulars in their final game. Sure it was garbage time and a meaningless game but this kid scored, rebounded and defended with impressive pts/rbds for the game. At 6'8" he has size/length and can play SG or SF ...

    Once Wallace or Bogans is moved this kid should get a look if the Spurs don't have him in their camp and give him their 15th roster spot. Here's some links for a look at him ...

    Hollis Thompson Making the Most of His Opportunity | July | 2013 Articles

    When the final game came, Thompson was awarded the chance to show off his full game. A thin 6’8” Thompson finished with 21 points on 8-12 shooting. He was able to create his own shot off the dribble and knock down the open three. He is constantly all over the court, seeming to always be in motion on both ends. Defensively he plays with an energy that gets tips, steals, and blocks. Offensively he never stays still even when without the ball. You would see him constantly on the offensive glass or cutting backdoor on a defender.

    Hollis Thompson: Georgetown Product Shines in Summer League finale

    Thompson has yet to make his mark in the NBA, but with more performances like last night, it will not be long before he does. He has been solid all Summer League long, particularly defensively and as a rebounder. He was terrific offensively as well last night, scoring 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting while contributing his usual on the other end. Chances are he will earn a training camp invite with the Spurs or some other team. He still may need to develop for a few years in the D-League, but Thompson has the ability to play in the NBA.

    Wrapping up the Spurs' Summer League action - Pounding The Rock

    Out of all these guys, Thompson had the best summer league. He defended, rebounded well, kept the ball moving on offense, and had a knack for being in the right place at the right time. As the starting small forward throughout the week, he was usually a role player offensively, but in the consolation round with the signed players sitting and DeShaun Thomas struggling, Thompson scored 21 points on 8-12 shooting and proved his worth. He's an inconsistent scorer, with an offensive game not nearly ready for the NBA, but I would like the Spurs to keep him in an Austin Toros jersey for a little while to see how he develops. As raw as he is offensively, I believe he has a chance to be a good 3-and-D player.

    I don't give a fat rats azz about he Fakers...I only want us in the lottery.....don't care at all about those people in LA...DA is most definitely planning on the lottery or close to it.....Fav is NOT a real center yet not ever having played one second as an NBA center ...DA's vision of the coming year is a lot more close to reality than a few posters here want to acknowledge.

    Just look at what the Lakers are doing and compare that to what Ainge is doing for the Celts.

     

    The Lakers signed guys like Chris Kaman and Nick Young.

    That's a sign of a team wanting to win.

     

    Ainge is saying the Celts will not be tanking.

    But moves like waiving Shavlik is an indication of tanking.

    Shav would just have cost the Celts 1m and he would've been a big help coming off the bench.

    Right now the Celts have Oly, Sully, Faverani, Bass, and Humphries as bigs and only Faverani is the true Center.

    That's not a team built to win.

     




    really?

     

     

    Randolph?

     

    he is a difference maker?

     

    in what league is that, I would like to know...because it's NEVER been in the NBA!!

     

    Come on Fierce...I know you said the other day that Ainge woudn't cut Randolph and all right before Randolph was...CUT.

     

    but just say....you were wrong on that. no need to make out like Randolph was anything more than SCRUB in the NBA.

    Re: The Master Plan


    I should add.......I will say right now the Celtics will NOT get the #1 pick in next years draft.

     

    even if we end up with the worst record in the league, the odds are we won't get #1.

     

    but not to dispare, there could be up to 5 TOP level players in next years draft.

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nba/news/20130712/nba-draft-2014-andrew-wiggins-julius-randle-marcus-smart/

     

    so even though odds are we won't end up with #1, if we are in the top five, we should get a possible future all-star.

     

    unless we get Aldridge first that is!

    You got it wrong.

     

     

    Mployee was the one who said Randolph will NOT get cut.

    I was the one who said Randolph will get cut because he doesn't fit in.

    Check the posts again because I never said Randolph won't be cut.




    fair enough I thought you said there was no need to cut him now....my mistake.

     

     

    I am correct on Randolph being an NBA scrub however and  that his being on or off the celtics roster will have NO BEARING on  the teams sucess.
