    Pats file tampering charges against Texans

    Let me know when Belichick retires. Until then, there's no evidence that any of the backroom squabbling has any effect whatsoever on the Patriots' on-field performance - last year being the prime example of that. Edit: to clarify, I'm not suggesting that anyone here was saying otherwise.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    There are ancillary things to discuss like the potential (admittedly probably very slight) for a S&T. And if he hasn't yet definitively told the Celtics he will not re-sign with them, this could be his opportunity to do that so the Celtics can move forward (or, conversely, the Celtics will just...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Sorry I wasn’t taking issue with your post specifically, just the general position you referenced that some people have that a Boston is somehow uniquely disliked as a free agent destination.

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    Stars will go to teams in premier locations or to teams that are already great or have a very good chance of being great. Boston isn’t unique - in the last 10 years, how many great free agents have gone to, say, Minnesota? How about Atlanta? Orlando? Phoenix? Or any of a selection of many other...

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

    Would you not call Hayward and Kyrie “championship winning studs”? Hayward’s injury threw a major wrench into the works no one was expecting, but their plan worked - they just didn’t end up winning a championship. And the Lakers could very well end up in precisely the same situation depending on...

    Pats file tampering charges against Texans

    Ok maybe there would never be a formal lawsuit but the point is I think if Caserio wanted to be the Texans’ GM this year, I think all parties involved would find a way to work things out. As others have said, the alternative is to have Caserio as a lame duck at the Pats who might be spending...

    Pats file tampering charges against Texans

    Yeah, this is why I have to believe the situation is more complicated than just “Caserio wants to be Texans GM and the Pats won’t let him leave.” And even if the Pats were trying to do that, I suspect Caserio’s response would simply be to resign, join the Texans and then effectively say “try to...

    Rich Paul/SI Article....

    This is absurd - Danny is a large reason they won their one recent championship and have contended for others. Even if it were true that Danny was “turning players off” he’d be worth keeping for his overall skill at trading, accumulating assets, etc. But, of course, there’s no real evidence...

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

    Lakers didn’t even have to give up Kuzma? That tells me Tatum was never on the table for 1 year of AD.

    6/13 Vs Tex. Two in a row

    That’s nothing given how much of the season is left and this team certainly at least has the potential to go on a tear if their offense gets hot. Weren’t the 2004 Sox down like 10 games at the end of July? (I know they didn’t actually win the division that year but they got surprisingly close.)

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    Oh, come on. There’s “zero upside” to trading for Anthony fucking Davis? The “upside” is that he gives them the best chance to win a championship next year - flags (or in this case banners) fly forever. And that’s putting aside the chance that, after a year in Boston, Davis reconsiders his...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    I completely agree and made the same point somewhere else - I think in the AD thread. I think the resistance to an AD trade if Kyrie leaves comes down to (1) memories of the ECF team from a year ago and (2) the fact that people like rooting for young players with lots of upside in general and...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    Reading the tea leaves, I suspect LA has already put their best offer on the table, and the reason AD isn't a Laker is because the Pels are trying to use that offer to leverage more out of Boston. Or, the Pels already consider Boston's offer better than whatever LA can offer, but haven't yet...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    I get that. My point more generally was that a lot can change over the course of a season/offseason in any player's mind - which is one reason (LBJ's shelf-life being one of the others) why the Lakers would be willing to part with significant assets to acquire AD now even if Rich Paul told them...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    Right - it's amazing to me how quickly people seem to have forgotten the Paul George saga, which was almost literally the exact same scenario, down to PG's camp saying the exact same things about being a rental: Except then, of course, he didn't go to the Lakers because he realized he liked...

    Binnington played out of his mind and Tuukka had an off night...that’s not the whole story of the game but it’s a big part.

    Plenty of time. Excited for this game to join the ever-growing ranks of amazing Boston comebacks in playoff games.
