    Christmas Day, a lump of coal for the Nets.

    I would like to imagine Mike Gorman congratulating Kyrie for having the “second most points by a Celtic on Christmas Day” and then having Kyrie ask “Who had the most? There’s Tommy, smiling and waving.

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    I am curious. What adjustments could tip $251,774? It would not surprise me if someone like Ainge would be capable of finding ways around this sort of thing.

    You are correct. Shockingly, John Hollinger is wrong.

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    40% of the US population live in the same town they were born in. 60% in the same state. Many parents don’t want a stranger raising their kids. They want to share the experience with their parents and brothers and sisters. Many people would rather die then leave the home they raised their...

    Carry on my Hayward Son: Gordon to Charlotte for 4 years, $120M

    OTOH, having 4 kids 5 yo and under makes the idea of having grandma daycare just down the street pretty attractive. It would not surprise me if his wife wants to live near home regardless of what Gordon would like. Remember, Happy Wife=Happy Life.

    There is a huge difference about going to LA for a season at the minimum and going to Milwaukee for a season at the minimum. The Bucks will have like 14 million to fill out their roster. This team is one injury away from disaster. (They can still make moves, but being hardcapped is a problem)...

    The Bucks now have 6 players on their roster and are hardcapped. I don’t see how this ends well.

    It certainly would be. What’s in it for The Kings?

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    Nothing about Brown? I thought he injured his leg in the last game against Toronto.

    Gordon Hayward 2020: I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!

    FYI When a baby has a due date, anytime 2 weeks before and after that due date is fair game. The baby may decide to come right after our 4 game sweep of the Heat and Hayward will leave after the game and rtn for game one of the finals, or he may decide to come right before game 7. (Most likely...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    Need more information. Just because he mentioned the 2008 game does not mean he was taunting Chris Paul or predicting that he was going to lose this one as well.

    On Assets and Liabilities: Celtics Playoff Bench vs their Peers

    I would agree with this except our window is not 2-3 years from now, the window to compete is now. We will not be drafting for contributors this draft, we are drafting for trade fodder and the picks themselves are trade fodder. With the clock ticking on Hayward and Walker, we need that bench...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    Suddenly, according to 538’s Raptor predictions, the Celtics and the Clippers are tied in the “Most likely to win the championship” at 21% each. After this game they may decrease the Clippers likelyhood.
