    The summer chopping block: who do you want gone and why?

    "No one" for me. JB's issues can be mitigated with better coaching, and better coaching can be gotten by hiring some veteran assistants for CJM.

    The Celtics Offseason

    I'd bring everyone back, get Mazzulla some veteran coaching help, and hope Horford can go the distance again. It's still a very strong team. A few tweaks might make them better.

    Al Horford - the Celtics' Resurrected Saviour of the Season

    It seems that Tatum electing to draw Embiid on offense freed up Horford on a lesser defender and opened up the other shooters after passing to him inside. So either Tatum blew by Embiid for a dunk or layup, or he passed to Horford or other passer en route to the open shooter. I know "primary...

    Celtics vs Heat ECF Redux Discussion Thread

    If we go by ORtg and DRtg, the Celtics are getting a similar defense to the Sixers, but a much worse offense: Sixers: ORtg 117.7 (4th), DRtg 113.3 (8th) Heat: ORtg 113.0 (25th), DRtg 113.3 (9th) For comparison: Celtics: ORtg 118.0 (2nd), DRtg 111.5 (3rd) Bucks: ORtg 115.4 (12th), DRtg 111.9...

    Way Too Early 2023 Season Prediction

    With all the rookies and new players, in addition to the veteran core and a new OC, leads me to believe that the Pats will start slow (say, 3-5) against a tough schedule, but improve as the season goes on and end up 9-8 or 8-9. Then, if enough drafted players pan out as quality players, they'll...

    2023 Pats: Post Your Final Draft Grade

    I voted A. This year's picks seem to reflect Belichick's philosophy from years ago: build a strong defense, couple that with a ball-control offense, and win with turnovers and special teams. The 2001 team featured a defense that finished 24th in the league in yards allowed, but 6th in points...

    4/13 Kluber at Springs

    I'm still not impressed with the Rays. All they've beaten (Tigers, Nationals, A's, and now Red Sox) are last-place teams. (ducks)

    UConn back to Big East?

    Also, going toe-to toe with the top-ranked team in the country using only 6 players is bound to lead to a letdown the next game.

    2/8 Embiid and Harden at the Garden

    I was at the game tonight. Yes, that was a great game. Celtics were missing three starters (Smart, Horford, and Robert Williams), and Jaylen Brown was hit in the face near halftime and didn’t play the second half. Also, Tatum and Brown totaled 16 points between them on 7-24 shooting (1-9 on...

    2/1 vs BKN 7:30 ESPN

    Shooting 53/92 (57.6%) from the field while making 26/54 (48.1%) 3-pointers means the Celtics converted 27/38 (71.1%) 2-pointers, a higher rate than they made at the free-throw line: 7/10 (70%). Boy, the Nets didn't put up much resistance there!

    Let's say BB stays on until he retires. What does that mean for the franchise?

    To clarify this analysis, the original Reddit article was written 5 years ago and used WRs drafted from 2002 to 2016. In BJ's cited examples above, only Demaryius Thomas (drafted in 2010) would count in the dataset. Reggie Wayne was drafted in 2001, Mike Williams in 2017, Wes Welker was a UDFA...

    The Game Goat Thread: Wk.16 vs Cincinnati

    Patricia. I don't blame Rham for that fumble. I blame the play call of yet another running play near the goal. He got stuffed, and helmet, plus the cold, forced the ball out. Mix in a pass play there!

    Raiders game goat thread

    Upon further review, I’ve decided that there are three main goats in this game: 1. Mac Jones. The three-play touchdown drive to go ahead 24-17 included a 39-yard pass to a wide open Jakobi Meyers (perhaps a blown coverage). Outside of that pass, his passing numbers were: 12-30, 73 yards, 40%...

    Raiders game goat thread

    Game goats in chronological order: 1. I don't know who to blame for the early-game sequence near the goal-line in which they called two timeouts, whistled for a false start on fourth down, and ultimately settling for a FG. 2. Mac Jones for throwing deep to double-covered receivers and almost...
