    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    That's what I was asking you. Do you think it's a success? I do. I get it's not sexy but if every pick has to be best player available, pretty much everything is going to be a failure. If you want to consider a guy like KO a failure, that's fine. I'm talking about a starting quality player on...

    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    Missing the point. If a player drafted at 14 ends up better than 6-7 guys drafted in front of him and worse than 1 player drafted behind him... is that a failure to you? Seems pretty short sited to judge a draft only by the players taken behind you. Who knows how this draft ends up, but if...

    Was Hakeem a failure at 1 because Jordan was taken 3rd?

    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    If Doumbouya develops into Paul George and Langford develops into Donovan Mitchell, is it really a failure or mistake? At some point, blaming Ainge for not picking these guys is ridiculous. Even Detroit didn't realize what they had at the beginning of the season. If Langford develops into a...

    Markelle Fultz, Year Three: He's back! Big....?

    Last 29 games: 28.5 minutes, 12.6 points, 5.2 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 2.1 TO on .462/.318/.735 shooting. Averaging 1.5 3PA a game. Really curious to see how he develops and what his ceiling actually is. Glad he's turned into an actual NBA player though. Not even close to being the...

    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    To me, Doumbouya still profiles as a 3 and D guy. He's odd because that's what his projection was and he's already there at just 19. I don't think he has the ability to create for others and really hasn't created shots for himself in the early going. Granted, he did just turned 19 and is the...

    In regards to Langford? Doumbouya's been starting since January and has put up 14.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals on .544/.414/.700 shooting. He's way ahead of where he was projected to be.

    Much better strikeout numbers in the minors and throws maybe 2-3 mph faster than Poyner. I'm not sure it's much of an upgrade but he put up some lofty k numbers after being moved to the pen.

    I don't know about that but I think most guys would benefit more traveling, practicing and getting DNP-CDs with the big club than playing in the G league.

    I think Waters can fill a role no one else on the team can really fill. That may get him minutes to contribute. The same can be said about Edwards too, but he's a one trick pony so it's harder to fit him in if he's not excelling at his one trick. I also think Waters makes Edwards mostly...

    It's the G league. The week before, Dragan Bender won player of the week. The week before that, it was our buddy PJ Dozier. I like Waters but what he's doing in the G league means nothing. It means even less for Edwards because Edwards will have a completely different role in the NBA...

    Jabari Bird Kadeem Allen Abdel Nader literally the first 3 names I checked. so yes. Lots. Fringe NBA players should dominate the G league. I like Waters and think he might contribute but odds are against him doing so in a Celtics uniform.

    Alex Cora fired

    You'd think pitchers in general wouldn't be very happy about any of this. It's pretty one sided.

    I think it's Danny Ainge, actually. So it has happened in my life time.

    Four first round picks for... Justise Winslow?? (Ainge's drafting record)

    When was the last time the Celtics signed one of their 2nd round picks to a 2nd contract? Did Dino Radja get a 2nd deal? I'm not sure its ever happened. At least not in my life time. Maybe I'm missing someone.

    Completely forgot about him. I'd still have Moore first. He's had the longest career, anyway.

    I'd take Moore over him every day. He's probably 2nd best. Powe is probably 3rd?

    without looking at his whole history, is Ainge's best 2nd round pick E'Twaun Moore? Does he still count?

    Describe substantial since you named Leon Powe. I guess Powe did manage to get a 2nd NBA contract and played a total of 50 games and 2 seasons after his rookie deal expired. I'd say that's a good outcome for both Waters and Edwards. Yay?
