    2021-22 NBA In-Season News/Transactions

    Maxey was a nobody 6 months ago. You guys are excuse making for a supposedly strong agency who couldn't bully a team into trading their all star client. This was always about Simmons. Pritchard scored more points than Maxey last year and got 300 more minutes.

    I'm assuming that a lot of this is tongue in cheek. Simmons not playing in Philly is a win for Maxey I guess but nobody else. Not Simmons, not Klutch who supposedly could force a trade, and not Morey. Everyone looks like an asshole...because they are.

    Nobody thinks that there's any coming back from it. The day of the refused layup, the relationship was dead. Both Doc and Joel fucked him on national TV that night. Of course he wants out, and I don't blame him. And yeah Morey should have quietly made a deal. Make the damn deal and be done...

    Yeah, I'm all for it. But not just because I'm a Celtics fan (or NOT a Sixers fan). The idea that the 25-30th player can shoot his way out of town with 4 years left on his deal should be horrifying to any fan. It would be bad enough if it were Lebron or Durant having just inked a 4-year...

    16 Days in January—Determining Trade Deadline Activity

    I'm the biggest Turner fan on here, and I wouldn't give up a first for him. I'd be surprised if anyone does, nevermind two of them. I suppose a lottery-protected pick would probably be doable for some teams with a real need, but his last couple of years have not been good to his rep. Have we...

    The Game Goat Thread: WCG @ Buffalo

    Agreed completely. I just don't know what the reads were and, therefore, who fucked up. Someone did.

    The Game Goat Thread: WCG @ Buffalo

    Someone else here might know that play better than I do. Much of this offense is about reading leverage and seams and optionality on the routes. If one guy just can't read the defense the same as the QB, he just won't be where the QB expects him to be. And we've had plenty of talented guys...

    The Game Goat Thread: WCG @ Buffalo

    Not likely. Chances are very high that either Jonnu or Myers read the play incorrectly and ran the wrong route. And given their target rates and production this year, my money is on Jonnu being in the wrong place. I hope that they figure out how to use him next year. He's a playmaker, and we...

    OK, I am going to ask the question: Has BB lost his fastball?

    Mac had a good relationship with Meyers, who was productive and dependable this year. That's worth ~3M.

    The analytics of NBA coaching challenges

    I know...the TV argument. Are the refs so bad that we'd be adding 90 minutes to games because of a dozen successful challenges? It hasn't killed the NFL. They get one back, I believe. If the standard is something like "clear and obvious", then most shouldn't get overturned anyway. I'd...

    The analytics of NBA coaching challenges

    Way to solve this problem is to give you the challenge back if it's successful. Then people would use them. I'd be in favor of getting it infinitely. If the refs keep fucking you, and the calls keep getting overturned, you keep getting challenges.

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    Is Brady the goat because of his arm strength? Velocity is overrated. Mac’s accuracy and decision-making is already above average, and he's a rookie starter. It will improve. His arm is below average, and it will also improve. Plus plus accuracy, recognition, and decision-making and...

    The Michael McCorkle "Mac" Jones Thread

    I agree with all of this. I'll add that there is obvious growth potential in two areas. He'll undoubtedly develop better velocity through mechanics. And he'll get better at reading defenses post-snap with time (he's not terrible there already, but will improve). I think that both of those...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I think what's a bit worrisome to Tatum fans is that we know why Luka has fallen off. Tatum came into this year in better shape, not worse. His shooting is just garbage right now. Maybe Olympic factor...maybe added muscle adjustments, reffing focus changes, maybe team construction, new coach...

    MCL is a bad luck injury and not really related to anything else. Probably good for a guy his age to get some rest.

    The Game Goat Thread: WCG @ Buffalo

    1. Belichick the GM for rostering linebackers who have to be timed with a sun dial, instead of a stopwatch. 2. Defensive coaching staff, who came up with nothing that confused Allen in 60 minutes. The guy played like he had our playbook.

    OK, I am going to ask the question: Has BB lost his fastball?

    The defense that got them to the playoffs with a mediocre offense has multiple years of holes to fix? I get being angry right now, but the defense was gold a month ago. It doesn't need to be completely rebuilt.

    I'm not being understood here. I never said that Morey's position was a good idea. He's an egomaniac who is playing this poorly. What I said was that he was going to do this. And he has done exactly this. Despite the "he would never do this" takes here and elsewhere. Klutch is just an...

    Yeah we don't know. But it's clearly not "another top-30 player". Morey publicly said that his price is a top-30 player, so he can't exactly backtrack if one is offered. So it's safe to assume that Not-Playing-Anymore/Playoff-Meltdown Ben is worth less than pre-Atlanta-series Ben. What we...

    Anywhere but there: The worst coaching opening

    We don't even know if Lawrence is the guy yet, and the rest of that roster just earned consecutive #1 picks.
