    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    The Celtics should assign a drop dead date on any KD deal that involves Jaylen Brown, preferable one before the start of the pre-season. If the Nets don’t meet it, they will have to find value elsewhere for their disgruntled superstar

    RIP Bill Russell

    The NBA dropped the ball when using the term grandfathered. I’m also guilty of using it in the past, and will no longer do so. In my business, we have replaced the term Master Bedroom with Primary Bedroom, and Master Bathroom with Primary Bathroom. There has been a bit of pushback from the...

    Just Because (2 Minutes of Jordan Athleticism)

    That reverse was learned by the innovator of much of what Jordan became famous for: Dr J. I remember watching this and just being totally stunned. What Jordan was in terms of superior athleticism to the rest of his NBA was even more amplified by what Dr. J was compared to the rest of his NBA in...

    What's left this off season?

    Didn’t JDD sign his two way deal before he played well in Vegas? Assuming he looks like an NBA player, he should earn a 2nd round guaranteed deal that locks him up for low money. I actually see him getting minutes this season, probably garbage time mop up duty on nights when other guards are...

    Kareem is a thousand times more likable now than when he was an active player.

    RIP Bill Russell

    I’ve read a lot of tributes to Russell in the last 24 hours, and the one posted on this board by Kliq is at least as good as any of them. Very few so articulately pointed out how Russell’s game changing skills basically created the modern game of basketbal. There is a famous picture of Bill...

    RIP Bill Russell

    I never played much basketball as a kid, and started playing in college in the early 80s. I had the temerity to jump in to pickup games with players with so much more experience and skill than I. Being without a lot of basketball skills, but being tall, athletic, and with a lot of jumping...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    This idiot Broussard actually makes a living as a sports commentator/quasi reporter

    Offseason Rumors/News

    Bam and JB are very close in value, with Bam a more rare commodity, in that he’s a rim defending big that can run offense and score. Bam is probably better as a positional fit with Tatum, who could just increase his scoring with JB replaced by a less explosive scoring wing. Bam’s fit with TL...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    I can say that the Celtics will mop the floor with teams most nights, since last season’s Celtics, after the new year, did mop the floor with teams most nights, with a weaker bench than the current squad. Swapping KD for Brown is more about closing out playoff series. I expect the Celtics to be...

    Would you trade Jaylen+ for Durant?

    What if KD buys into the Celtics like KG did? Durant already has a solid relationship with Olympic teammate Jayson Tatum, who is on a career arc to be the next Durant. The Celts would be taking a chance of KD’s health, but if the could acquire him for Brown and White, this team would be...

    Kevin Durant Sweepstakes

    I don’t think Brooklyn will do better than Jaylen Brown, Derrick White and two firsts, assuming KD would squawk so much that any trade to a non contender would not be possible. I wouldn’t be surprised if JB’s new people are behind this news. What better way to raise the profile of your new...

    If there was a way for the 1986 and 2022 Celtics to play each other, I’m taking the 1986 Celtics. The 2008 Celtics would also beat the 2022 Celtics, probably because of a superior bench.

    Grant “Corner Office” Williams

    This was on Celtics social media today. So this is how Grant got the feet to guard smaller covers on the perimeter https://instagram.com/stories/celtics/2889580858818663710?utm_source=ig_story_item_share&igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
