    National Celtics discourse

    I'm a big Lowe fan, and I had to shut it off. It was embarrassing. He then went on to talk about some ridiculous hypothetical around if you ran a simulation on the 6 foul calls, you'd probably average around 5 fouls, completely ignoring any possible other fouls Luka committed that weren't...

    5/15 - G5 vs. CLE - Gentleman's Sweep

    He gets a lifetime pass for the 3-0 hand gesture to Embiid in 2018.

    Who's Ineligible For All-NBA?

    You need to play 20 minutes for a game to count (with 2 exceptions for 15-19 minutes allowed), so technically Haliburton has missed 4, as he only played 13 minutes against the Celtics the other night. It also adds another missed game to Kyrie's total, meaning he can't miss another game (not...

    2023 NBA Playoffs

    Because the 9:00 timeslot is the NBA TV game, and they're not putting Lebron and the Lakers on NBA TV.

    10-18-2022: Sixers @ Celtics

    I mean, he's right? A 45% shooter is more likely to get 3 points than a 70% FT shooter is, but that's because a 3 pointer only has 2 possible outcomes - 0 points or 3 points. But ultimately, you'd rather have the free throws, because 2.1 expected points is better than 1.35 expected points.

    Offseason Rumors/News

    Strongly disagree with the "leaving it up to the players" approach. That hangs Poole out to dry, putting him in a no-win situation.

    NBA Standings Watch

    After last night's results, Nets now can't catch the Bulls, and they almost definitely won't catch the Raptors, who only need to go 2-4 in their last 6 to clinch a better record than the Nets, and they have games left against Orlando, Houston, and the Knicks. So Nets in the play-in is now a...

    NBA Standings Watch

    Yeah the Nets aren't catching the Bulls - they'd need to win out and have the Bulls go 1-5 or 0-6 in their last six. Those last six contain 5 home games, and the Bulls have the best home record in the East. I frankly highly doubt they're catching the Raptors either. Even if the Nets win out...

    2020 NBA Draft Game Thread

    Yes. I don't think this has ever happened in the lottery era. Even the infamous 2000 and 2014 drafts had Kenyon Martin and Oladipo who were both all stars at least once.

    Who are you?

    Udonis Haslem - a role player who has somehow managed to carve out a 15+ year career playing exclusively for his hometown team, and won multiple championships to boot.
