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

    I thought it was a Scooby Doo jersey? Or did he do both?

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

    I don't subscribe to b-ref so I can't run this search. But if you said "non-lottery guys form the last 20 years", I suspect that Rondo and Al would rank not top 5, but still reasonably high. And Terry Rozier is having a nice year...

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

    There's truth to that, but the stage you are in can change in a hurry. And even if it doesn't, you've got a nice trade chip. As it turned out, Olynyk was an nice, cheap role player for a team that went to the conference finals. And yes, they could have had Giannis or Rudy Gobert instead, but...

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

    Olynyk was better than nearly everyone picked below him, and most of the guys picked above him. Yes, one of the exceptions to "nearly everyone picked below him" is Giannis, but there are 20 Kedrick Browns for every Giannis who grows 2 inches after being drafted and reaches his ceiling. Having...

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    Don't get me wrong as I'm extremely happy for it, but Why is Williams so effective on those lob passes? Seems like there are a lot of 6'8" guys who can jump with halfway decent hands that should be able to do the same thing. Is it just a knack for being in the right position?

    Extra Points with Cousin Sal and Dave is going to be a fun listen tomorrow.

    Salvador Perez gets paid (4/82)

    Catcher on the wrong side of 30 seems like a weird expenditure for a small market team. Hope they weren't swayed by his OPS+ of 161 last "season".

    LeBron James to join FSG as full partner and become part owner of the Red Sox(among other FSG entities)

    Wow. I guess that could still be a very small share but either way, good for him. I too wish he'd be at least a little more critical of China, but he's got a lot of company among businesspeople who have had to make moral compromises to protect their interests. Baseball and the Red Sox have...

    LeBron James to join FSG as full partner and become part owner of the Red Sox(among other FSG entities)

    How much of a share do you typically need to become a partner? Maybe the threshold for him is lower because of what else he brings to the table, but if FSG group is worth 6.6 billion as this article states, even a 1% share is 66 million. Which he probably has, but that's no small chunk of...

    Pats Roster Planning: Offense

    If they do end up with Ornette, it will (I'd hope) have zero to do with who they are taking him from.

    Pats Sign LB Matt Judon

    This is no doubt fun, but don't we always make fun of the Jets for getting excited over winning FA?

    Got it. Thx to all for the responses.

    Pats Re-sign Cam Newton to a 1-Year Deal

    How do incentives work with the cap? Do they have to keep the space in reserve in case he meets 100% of them?

    Rheal Cormier dead of cancer at 53

    Kenny McDonald had a nice couple of years at PC and was the head coach of a Western Kentucky team that beat a 5 seed (Illinois) in the 2009 NCAA tournament. That's all I got.

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

    Anyone want to bet on whether or not Jerami Grant is more than a good stats/bad team guy? I'm kind of intrigued. Also, I didn't realize that he's Horace Grant's nephew (Harvey's son)...

    "Spot and Choose": New Proposal for Overtime Rules

    I like this idea, don't think it will end up being enacted if only because it opens up a huge area for coaches to be second-guessed. But maybe that's ultimately good for business?

    Thank You, Jackie Bradley Jr.

    Glad he got a decent payoff -- this late in the game, I had my doubts. Hopefully he's still a viable FA two years from now.

    NFL QB Carousel

    Has any holdout, in any sport, ever gotten to that point? I expect this to get resolved, one way or the other, with Watson getting traded the most likely outcome.

    NFL QB Carousel

    Houston's leverage is that Watson doesn't get paid.
