    Paul to the Hall (2021 Hall of Fame discussion)

    Re: Gorman. I was lucky enough to get floor seats from a friend for a game a couple of years ago v. the Pacers (we sat front row, midcourt, the best seats in the entire garden) and brought my HS son who was a senior and an enormous basketball/celtics fan. We were sure to get there early to...

    Smart Move: Keep or Say Goodbye to Marcus?

    If you cannot sign Marcus to a team friendly deal, then no thank you. He's not getting better as a shooter, and he may actually regress. Couple that with the expected defensive decline, and he will be a significantly less valuable player under his next contract than he was under this one...

    Smartfood for Thought: What do you want to do with Marcus Smart after this year?

    Next year will be Marcus's 8th season in the NBA, where he has averaged 30 minutes a season playing a fairly aggressive brand of basketball that is hard on his body. What reasonable expectation can we have that he can "get back his defensive chops?" My concern is that we've seen the best of...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    This would be an interesting take if anyone in this thread was advocating what you suggest, but since no one has, it's rather lame. In case you haven't been following, the the conversation that the majority of us are having is between guys who think RL already has a plus NBA skill and projects...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Yes, it's a small sample size, but your suggestion that if he had hit one or two more 3 pointers, it would "elevate his percentages" is uninspiring. One can flip your enthusiasm on its head and say "if he had just missed 1 or 2 more 3 pointers or missed 7 more shots" he's be even more god...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    What are Brad and ET gonna say, he sucks? Right now, he's a lousy NBA basketball player who has had a string of bad luck with injuries, so there is still a chance. Almost every part of his game is well below NBA standards. He's defense is average...although people can quibble. He's the...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Completely and totally agree. I'm hopeful he develops into a meaningful, 20 minute + player per game. Just don't think he's remotely there yet.

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Friends, Romeo-lovers, Greenteamers, I come to bury Romeo, not to praise him. First, I respect the hell out of the basketball knowledge of a bunch of posters here (benhogan, lovegtm, HRB, etc.). That said, right now, Romeo Langford is not a very good basketball player. He cannot shoot for his...
