    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Shooting is momentum not power. Range is not determined by legs/knees. You're think is old school and wrong.

    Doc Rivers fired by Clippers.

    Yeah that's the appeal. Probably why he'll get offered the Clips.

    Jayson Tatum Needs His Own Thread

    Pierce said it best on Countdown tonight. Guys like Butler ( very, very good but not a superstar) can afford to be the fourth best option on the Heat at times and they'll still win playoff games (deep roster with lots of shooters). Tatum, as the Celtics are currently constructed, cannot enjoy...

    ECF Game 5 - Enough of this %*#*

    JVG emphatically stated Kanter should start the second half...which was hilarious to basketball fans or at least to me. Yeah I get that the commentators want to keep it simple and come up with their own easy adjustments that are digestible to the public, but I was still surprised. JVG should...

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    Haha. I appreciate that. Unfortunately, I feel like a bad dad because I do let my kid stay up and watch these games when I know most parents wouldn't. Anyway, as for game 4, I'll have to think about it. Right now I'm consumed with my kid being home all the time and prepping my own team which...

    9/20 Pats at Seattle

    Yeah watching this again, even going outside Cam would've been caught by #97 probably or maybe.

    9/20 Pats at Seattle

    I do think that as the staff gets more used to Cam they will get better at calling plays that take way more advantage of his strengths. It is still way early in this relationship.

    9/20 Pats at Seattle

    Good to know. Thank you. Easy for me sitting on my couch where I can just press rewind and watch it unfold in slow motion. I recall thinking before the snap either stall your run for a split moment or rollout wide bc Seattle will totally sell out for the between the tackles QB run. Again though...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.2 at Seattle

    I'm not a football guy but if you go back and look at the last play, Cam had the easy bounce out to the left pylon. He could've walked in. He has at times waited to see how the blocking unfolds but didn't in this case. The entire left side of the defense was hemmed in and pancaked. Anyway, not a...

    Agree and should also add that in spurts the Celtics aggressive jumping of passing lanes with their more athletic wings led to easy offense. Defense was their offense at times.

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    And Jesus I don't mean Hayward's presence was the only difference. Clearly, blast cuts (catching on the move on the perimeter and continuing) tonight were emphasized. Very hard for zone or man to react to that if the receivers are decisive and skilled.

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    Spo in the first two games essentially eliminated Kemba but in a different way than Nurse did with Toronto. Nurse went box and one on Kemba and face guarded him and denied the pass back (which actually allowed the Celts to play 4-on-4 which is a big advantage but was under appreciated here). Spo...

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    And yet that is who they flashed from the weak side tonight. Which was always the answer. Hayward being the best option for this bc he's incredibly unselfish and decisive and a midrange threat and still has Tatum as an option on the perimeter (frankly, a double team is usually advantage Hayward...

    ECF Game 3--MARCUS

    In fairness, getting something quick is generally not Butler's game especially from three. Though I could quibble and say Butler as an attack threat is valuable in those situations.
