    I thought the reports weren't that LeBron coming to town cause Hayward to not happen, but the subsequent Love trade.

    Hayward signed his Hornets offer sheet in early July, 2014 which was matched by Utah. LeBron didn't officially sign with Cleveland until early/mid-August, a full month later, and the Cavs needed the full max to acquire him.

    I think what will separate Hayward from JT and JB at the start of the season is how well he will play with Al and Kyrie, in various 2-player sets. Kyrie and Al would regularly put on clinics in that regard when they were both healthy. And from the highlights clip from the preseason that someone posted upthread, there will be a lot of that when there are 3 such possible pairings.

    Now I hope that as the year progresses, JB and JT will learn a lot watching (and listening) to these 3, but especially to Hayward who essentially plays the same position (wing) whereas Al and Kyrie don't.

    Hayward signed his offer sheet the day before Lebron did "I'm coming home".

    Don’t get me wrong, Horford and Brown are great players, Horford is the classic third member of a big 3, the guy that scores the points the other two don’t.

    Brown projects to a secondary scorer, an effective scorer whose offense comes from the attention the primary scorer gets (and there’s nothing wrong with this, Kevin Garnett was a secondary scorer, albeit one of the best in league history).

    Tatum’s a on a different level, he’s a pure alpha scorer on a team that already has two of those guys. How do you stop someone like that when you already have to stop Kyrie and Gordo?

    Yes I remember there was an annoucement prior to the "official" signing but the point remains......Cleveland couldn't sign both Hayward and LeBron under the salary cap.

    According to yahoo article (no link sorry), the Celtics sent a trainer out to work with Hayward last week and reported back that he looked great.

    He looks pretty good at whatever you call this. Swipe or click to the right to see the second half with the nifty behind the back recovery:

    Hard to tell for sure given angle and length of clip but sure looks like there's a lot more range of motion in his right ankle. Probably to be expected.

    In the 1st video, I would agree. Appears that he isn't being pushed to extend his left leg way out to get the ball. 2nd video though, that does not seem to to be an issue.

    This would instantly be near the top of memmorable things in Boston sports history if the Cs won a championship chanting that at opponents.

    The slightly creepy angle definitely helps.

    Edit, just figured out a rhythm:
    DA dy's AL ways
    *clap* H
    *clap* A
    *fast clap* P
    *fast clap* P
    *clap* Y

    This video would work for us on many levels--need to listen to the pre-song chatter:



    Game so fucking on.

    Didn't C's fans essentially already do this when Delonte West played in Boston the second time around?

    I think "Dad-dy's Hap-py" maximizes sentiment and rhythm.

    Agreed, I'm taking back my earlier suggestion and am in for this.

    His upper half looks bigger than I remember.

    He's been pretty jacked for a few years now — I seem to recall some eye-popping before/after shots from a few years back. Probably a good thing given that he's now the de facto 4 in the Cs' optimal lineup. He's gonna need that strength for banging with Draymond and Jordan Bell in the finals.

    I wanted to see the landing and that’s when numbnuts walked in front of camera.
