    Agreed - Eduardo Perez was focused on those crow hops. Just a bad time to make a blunder like that.

    Gilbert smoked that ball though - it was tough to grab. That throw was what cost them but credit to Miss St for some big ABs to start the inning and Auburn's Burns couldn't get outs when he needed them.

    That throw was horrible and the second one in a row (the first was from the SS) that almost cost them the lead. I love when teams continue to grind their way out of a hole. HOLY SHIT!!!! Baseball doesn't award victories until the final out is recorded. Miss St 5, Auburn 4...wow

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    If you are right, the New York media (though some members here who are NY locals have stated they are a lot more benign of late) will bait him into saying something controversial or will savage him after a bad stretch or playoff performance. I cannot imagine a person who suffers from that...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    I mean, he clearly is the kind of person that would generally be labeled as someone who "marches to the beat of his own drum" so you may well be right. I would love more color on what went down with him the locker room this year but I doubt we ever get anything close to the real story. Its...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    But would Ainge trade Irving to Philadelphia or Milwaukee even if he was throwing in the towel? My sense is that were the Celtics to determine that Irving wasn't returning and that they wanted to get something for him, they would likely send him to the WCF. Then you have narrow down the field...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    I don't know Kyrie Irving personally nor do I know anyone who does so you might be right. That said, I am interested how you arrived here if you are able to share. The other explanation is along the lines of what 128 suggested - there may be more to this story than has been reported. We may...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    No you didn't and no offense intended. Just not sure how you can even begin to answer the question you are asking.

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

    Yes. They signed LeBron James last summer and now they turned a bunch of young players & picks into Anthony Davis. That undoes a lot of bad calls in the years prior. We can dismiss these events as a function of their location and the value of the Lakers brand. However, they are now in a...

    Austin Martin with only the second multi-HR game at TD Ameritrade since it opened as he leads off the game for Vandy with a one run shot and then hits a two run jack in the seventh . Vandy 3, Louisville 1 into the eighth.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    I am curious what is to be gained by this line of thinking. Its history, it was never really discussed beyond maybe this forum and other dark corners of the interwebs. At the time, the general view was that the Celtics still had time to turn things around and/or be in play for Davis. None of...

    Wait...what? Pick a side! Someone is a massive loser in this deal right now - there has to be or else why bother posting. In all seriousness, the Lakers had to do this - they went all in with LeBron/Klutch last year and they are now in a position to contend for a title next year depending on...

    Again, I like Clint Capela but I am not sure where you get that he is one of the best defenders in the league. And I would not refer to him as a "very good rim protector" either but YRMV - he wasn't much better in terms of BPG than Horford last season and nobody would refer to Al as a rim...

    I don't get the Capela talk at all. This is not to say that Clint Capela isn't a good player - in the right system, like he has in Houston, he can be very effective. But he is surrounded by good shooting which gives him a lot of room to roam on PnRs etc. He would not have that sort of...

    The Lakers are going all in for the next few seasons. Its not a completely crazy gamble but the stakes are pretty damn huge.

    Tatum can shoot but he needs to show he can do so at volume now. Brown shot well the second half of the year but its unclear whether his 3p% post-ASB is sustainable or not. There are questions about not only whether Hayward's last season in Utah was an outlier but also if his pre-injury...

    Once again, the EC in '17-18 was wide open after the Cavs and the Celtics got some favorable draws (a Wizards team that was injured and not well constructed and a Bucks team with a not yet fully weaponized Giannis). I would throw out that result in looking forward as other teams in the...

    The IT4 seasons came after a rebuild...the Celtics were amongst the favorites to come out of the East the past two seasons. Totally different dynamic and trajectory.

    A Hayward/Horford/Tatum/Brown/Smart team may be fun but they aren't likely to go to the ECF. I think you expect a six to eight seed with a few slot upside if Hayward can retrace some more of what he lost, if either/both of the Js improve and Horford doesn't fall off. That squad may win a...

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

    Yeah I think the takeaway is that Ainge and team didn't believe they would have any success convincing Davis to stay, especially with Irving all but gone. Griffin clearly wanted a package centered around Tatum and the Celtics couldn't stomach Tatum for a one and done. I am not sure the team...
