Forum Post: Excellent!!!! we got the 5th spot!!!
Posted 04/18/2014 11:15:07 EDT
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the tie-breaker goes into effect only if NEITHER the Celtics NOR the Jazz get a top three pick after the ping-pong balls have stopped tumbling. If that should be the case, more »
Forum Post: What is Jeff Green?
Posted 04/10/2014 11:17:42 EDT
He's a tall, lithe, coordinated, 6'9" guy with big hands who can also run fast and jump high. These attributes are natural gifts. Having been introduced to basketball, he also learned how to shoot a j more »

Is it fair to say that the ball moves better and there is more spacing without Rondo?
Fair or not, it does.
Posted 04/05/2014 09:04:51 EDT
Win or lose, the team made recognizably sound basketball plays when Pressey, Bayless, Olynyk, Sullinger and either Johnson or Babb took the floor. The two bigs cleared out of the block areas, they pas more »
Forum Post: TANKAPALOOZA BOWL...76'rs vs. Celtics
Posted 04/05/2014 02:33:47 EDT
Guys, what energy? Bayless brings no energy. Just because he dribbles the hell out of the ball but gets nowhere with it doesn't mean he's an energy player. He can't defend at even a break even rate. M more »
Posted 04/04/2014 10:02:31 EDT
Please, no more "Let's keep Bayless" talk. He is maybe the most consistently careless and error-prone guard I've seen in years. Cannot make ANY basic plays. Is right up (down?) there with Bradley in t more »
Forum Post: If you had the #4 pick for 4 years in a row could you do better than this?
Posted 03/14/2014 02:40:14 EDT
Listen to a lot of people here and you get the impression that simply drafting high will be the solution to all Celtic problems, i.e., a) that a top five pick is an automatic cure-all, b) that getting more »

Forum Post: Jeff Green will not hunt.
Posted 02/22/2014 10:39:15 EST
This 21 point game against the Lakers might look good to some people, but it was an empty 21. First, Green's plus/minus was -17. You could actually track it happening. Next, despite being 6'9", good l more »

End of Suns game. One of thousands of examples of why Jeff Green just doesn't have it. Last shot by Rondo (admittedly bad), offensive rebound by Sullinger, put-back by Sullinger, defensive rebound by more »
Posted 02/19/2014 11:01:41 EST
Go to your replay button and check the last few minutes of the 3rd quarter of the Suns game. And watch Green only. Holy cow! At that rate of interest and exertion, this "professional athlete" could be more »
Forum Post: Chris Johnson and the hockey assist
Posted 01/29/2014 07:33:22 EST
In response to chris33's comment: [QUOTE] The Celtics pass the ball too much. Even Tommy talked about it last night. They turn down open chots at the head of the key all the time. You have 17 seconds more »
Posted 01/29/2014 10:56:19 EST
It may be that I grossly overvalue the art of passing the ball in basketball, but seeing Bradley, Bass, Green try to move the ball around the court to me is tantamount to sticking needles in my eyes. more »
Forum Post: C. Johnson Signs Second 10-Day Contract! Is He A Keeper?
Posted 01/28/2014 02:18:08 EST
Exactly. You need to guard against it. The hyperbole machine was at one point in full overdrive on Olynyk, but he's looking shakier and shakier by the day. It seems truly burdesome for him to be p more »
Posted 01/28/2014 01:11:00 EST
[/QUOTE] I agree with everything you said. I like his game. Me saying I didn't see anything "special" was a conscious attempt to combat hyperbole. I see him as a good bench guy who can play 15 to 20 m more »

Posted 01/27/2014 10:45:14 EST
The operative term here is "value." It sounds like a circular argument when we say that we want to get rid of a player whom we no longer value, while at the same time worrying about getting equal va more »

Forum Post: WHAT CHRIS JOHNSON ADDED
Posted 01/22/2014 12:03:07 EST
Regardless of how long he stays with the team, Johnson tonight showed in 25 minutes more pure, intuitive basketball instinct than Bradley, Bass and Green collectively. He can score, he's athletic, he' more »
Forum Post: Bradley continues to be an issue
Posted 01/20/2014 01:25:54 EST
To think, Avery Bradley was once neck and neck with John Wall as HS player of the year. If those pre-university evaluators were right, it begs question, "What the hell happened to him?" I prefer to th more »

Interesting, but you do understand that Ainge couldn't have got rid of these guys without first having signed them to begin with, right? They didn't just walk into the locker room and play until Dan more »
