    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Who said "Boston management?" That line from the article is outside of quotation marks, it's at best a paraphrase: Was there another instance of "Boston management" being cited that you're referring to, or was it this? Because if this is is it, you're attributing words to Rich Paul (that you...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Other than Horford, Hayward, and Garnett (agreeing to extend before the trade), sure. He also got Irving on board, initially. How many stars did the Celtics get to join them before Ainge’s era? What’s the right number of stats that should have joined during Ainge’s tenure? Other than Durant...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    You’re putting way too much thought into the words of someone who is bending over backwards to avoid saying “I work for LeBron, of course I want my star client playing for the Lakers.”

    A lot of it is endorsements, brand management, etc. Here's an article that might be interesting, with some anonymous quotes from agents on how the endorsement market has shifted in recent years: https://hoopshype.com/2018/09/19/the-endorsement-game-how-nba-players-make-money-off-the-court/

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Kinda surprised they didn't get Kuzma. Lonzo doesn't want to play there and can't play offense in the half court, Ingram is an injury risk and doesn't play hard all the time, Hart is a JAG, and the initial of those first rounders is the 4th in a three man draft. There better be light...

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    The dude does push ups while watching Spongebob before going to bed, claims he's "addicted" to working out, and is part of this family: Of the roadblocks to a Gronk return, staying in football shape seems to me to be the least daunting impediment.

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    Would Bosh getting inducted be out of line? Career cut short by injury and his stats dropped when he teamed up with LeBron and Wade, but he was an 11 time All Star and a key piece of two championships as part of a historically significant team.

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    How far back are we talking here? Are we counting, say, Red getting Russell for Ed Macauley and Cliff Hagan the Ice Capades?

    Decisions to be made

    Is there a better big game, big moment linebacker than Dont’a Hightower? Well, sure, maybe. But, SB 49 he had the famous stop on Lynch to set up the Butler interception. SB 51 he had the pivotal strip sack on Ryan. SB 53 he had two sacks, after only one in the entire regular season. With a title...

    The 2nd Season - 2019 Playoff Thread

    I’m still seeing GSW at around -285 to win the title, so Vegas appears to be less swayed by either Eastern team.

    Now if we can just get Kobe to be the next GM of the Heat, we’ll have a full set of hatable Boston/New England sports antagonists running mediocre Miami teams. As pointed out, I can’t read.

    Dame also had a lousy four games against the Pelicans last year when they got swept in the first round, and then came back strong this year against OKC and Denver. And those Pels didn't have a defenses like Milwaukee does this year. It happens, even to Dame/Kyrie level players.
