    If getting Steven Adams for an extra year at $18M is a good thing then I give up

    Still can't figure out which was worse 1. Watching TT/Theis cover wings for numerous possessions or 2. Theis being a spot-up 3pt shooter with Tristen clogging the lane The saddest bit is the first 10 games were the best part of the season. COVID season came as advertised. It's the only thing...

    2021-22 NBA Off-season Thread

    if I was a Memphis fan, I'd rather have them aggressively go after FA (Fournier?) or young RFA talent, stay put at 17 and keep Valanciunas (who I like much more than Adams) Bouknight, 7.5 and climbing, he's not hitting double digits or did you also want them to trade up again for James...

    Trade Deadline Poll

    Chaim moves some upper-level positional prospects, that potentially create a 40-man issue this winter, for a relief pitcher & good glove LHH first baseman. At first blush, they won't be the sexiest moves, but they will help them win the AL East. Workman's days in Boston feel numbered. I'm a...

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Jaylen could also be just as good as Beal in 2yrs when Tatum also starts peaking. The Celtics have done a lot of the hard work/development in regard to Brown. He's on a friendly deal (relative to Beal's next deal). and could benefit from a new voice/coach JB should be off the table in regards...

    7/25/21-vs. Yankees-Perez vs. German-1 pm

    Franchy looks very comfortable at the plate sadly he doesn't seem bothered missing the ball by a foot every time

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    If you're adding Beal while keeping Jays then the 1sts shouldn't be of any concern. What's the delta between late 1sts and early 2nds (which can be purchased). for example, OKC has 3 1sts + 3 2nds in 2021. Pistons have Cade + 3 2nds. They really don't have the roster spots for all those...

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    After watching some Kessler vid, Pepperdine needs to get out of the gymnasium and build a multipurpose arena. They own swaths of some of the most beautiful real estate on the planet, shouldn't be that tricky to figure out (then again the roads/PCH & neighbors probably kibosh any thoughts of 10K+...

    Have you looked at Kessler Edwards yet? nice length/wingspan, shooting% is solid but slow launch

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Danny had a rough couple of years which was all set in motion by Kyrie's false promise. 'Hob aptly labelled it the Ky-HEX That in turn set off a chain of unfortunate events that Danny tried to correct on the fly last year and Brad is trying to correct now.

    this is correct If Semi or Jabari started off the year as the 15th man, that would be acceptable Starting the season with Semi/Jabari in the top 10 rotation would mean that Brad cleaned out a lot of the roster for Beal or Dame while retaining Brown/Tatum/TL...that also would be acceptable

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    Grimes climbed the mocks after the combine. Unfortunately, he probably won't last until 45 as far as Vegas Insider, I'm seeing Grimes at 32.5 McBride 30.5 Wieskamp 42.5 looks like they have ~50 players O/U but not seeing anything on Bassey, Hyland, Nix Bassey and Hyland have shown up on...

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    yea, that's kind of what I was thinking. Always hard to guess who else would be interested in Murray (well everyone) but be willing to pay up. The top 20 NBA teams are pretty well set with their starting PG. Top 10 lottery teams aren't going to move numerous picks for a defense-first PG. His...

    Red Sox sign Enrique Hernandez (2 years, 14 mil)

    SoSH, and I'm sure yourself, are wildly more astute than 95% of sports fans in the mainstream.
