    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    Horford keeps getting his name thrown around here like OKC will throw us a lifeline. The trade only makes sense (without a heavily protected future first) for OKC if they can flip KW for assets after the year. As those lusting after Horford show, Horford has more trade value than KW. If this...

    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    Here are the players selected from pick 20 to pick 30 for a deeper look at Boston's opportunities. (source https://www.basketball-reference.com/draft/NBA_2019.html) Here are the players I would swap directly for Grant Williams: Thybulle, Clark, Bazley, Poole, Porter, Johnson. You had two...

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Great thread and a few thoughts. 1) Who do we trade Kemba to? It's clear to everyone watching that Kemba is not living up to his contract. We might have to just hope for improvement. 2) Regarding "you combine Smart, TT and filler to match salaries, and do a deal based on lots of future picks"...

    Getting Smart with Statistics

    Shot putting the ball on a jump ball (3rd Q?) and not letting the clock expire for NO was an incredibly boneheaded move. It changed the momentum. If he gets credit for his intangibles, he should also get criticism.

    Daniel Theis to Chicago for Mo Wagner

    Good analysis. I was going to reference the same after looking through his B-REF this morning. The totals even bring this out a bit more. He also has a quick release. He set the ball eye level and quickly put it up. On the Celtics, there already looked like plays drawn up to take advantage of...

    NBA Trade Deadline - Buyout Season Thread

    Woj: "Free agent LaMarcus Aldridge plans to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, sources tell ESPN." The rich get richer. What are the board's thoughts on his impact on the Nets roster?

    D(anny)-Day : Predict the outcome of today's trade deadline

    How could Danny not top the offer for Gordon? Squints at Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton, and top-five protected pick in 2025. Maybe he didn't think Gordon was that good (3P% trending in the right direction this year but career .323 and 70% FT% albeit his defense is legit) or maybe the Celtics assets...

    Trade Deadline Poll: Which lane will Danny choose?

    It's time to push in the chips for Collins. He is the ideal piece and will be a true game-changer. If Ainge has the resources, he has to use them to acquire the most valuable piece first. Collins is worth it for the Celtics, even if it is an overpay because a quarter is greater than 3 dimes in...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    This is spot on. AN has beautiful shooting mechanics and good athletic ability. Hopefully, his ship rights itself once he finds confidence. Meanwhile, we are still one wing player away. (Saddiq Bey's lockdown defense and 40% 3P% would have looked nice in green but—if wishes were horses)

    Classy Championship Game (NFC and AFC) Game Thread

    GOAT. PS. Love the sideline focus cams on the players after a big play. Scotty put on a good show there.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Baynes missed close to 30 days in 2018 - 2019 Season. So yes, if Timelord was healthy, he would have gotten more minutes.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Both Langford and Timelord had injury issues in their first year. Langford was on the inactive list 26 times and had 14 DNPs while appearing in 32 games with two starts Timelord was out with knee issues and suffered an injury in the preseason. In July 2018, Timelord was revealed to have (PAES)...

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    There are practice data points that we are not privy to. I think we can all agree that the jury is out on Nesmith. We, as external stakeholders, do not have the full information. Things we know: He talks the talk. "Get 1% better every day" He's still learning the schemes on offense and defense...

    James Harden to Brooklyn

    Great analysis. The draft capital looks right to me. I do see more of @nightbob point. It all hinges on if the stars resign. If the Nets are wildly successful, not a guarantee by any means, then the picks are not as valuable. The stars also have an opportunity to brand with NYC's rebuild...

    James Harden to Brooklyn

    When you consider the time horizon, this trade is a Win-Win. The trade also isn't comparable to the Celtics Nets trade. Harden is in his prime (31). Garnett (37) and Pierce (36) trade was in the twilight of their careers. Brooklyn It appears that Kyrie is out for at a minimum for a short...

    Victor Oladipo to Houston

    Could they get a mid-to-late round pick for Oladipo though? They might be able to convince a contender to part with late picks for their role players as well. It's way too early to tell but the "spray and pray approach" seemed to work better this year and more steals were found later in the...

    That's rich. It's not my intention to antagonize anyone just challenge your groupthink. (As a separate point that does not give OurF'ingCity the right to speak down to anyone on this board.) You're pulling out straw-man arguments for a serious question. I did not say that players do not...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    Thank you for your condescending tone. I've never seen the regular season play out before. What does that have to do with my assessment that the Celtics need to play better? You don't think that the Celtics need to improve on this game? I never said there is a correlation between this win, the...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    Re: Indiana Pacers Mea Culpa on the Indiana Pacers and their competitive positioning this year. My argument got distorted by hyperbole. My point is that the Celtics should be handling a 7th or 8th seed more effectively not fighting for a 6th, 7th, 8th position.
