    Al Horford: does he stay or does he go?

    poorly phased, should have just said " didn't see Al leaving" figured Danny/Al's agent had already worked the framework out for a 3yr deal if Al gets a 4yr MAX deal you congratulate him and wish him luck.

    Al Horford: does he stay or does he go?

    agreed. If Al leaves this team is in for a multi-year rebuild. mea culpa here I definitely didn't see this at all, letting him walk is a real head-scratcher.

    2019 Draft

    yea but I included Semi :drunk: If that's not enough I'd rather see Danny move on, and see what the asking price is on Monte Morris (my new binky) from the Nuggets

    2019 Draft

    What would be the cost for #2 pick for the Celtics to draft Ja Morant? Memphis gets their pick back #14 #22 TL or Semi Maybe Memphis can't find a taker for Conley's contract and wants the half dollar and 3 quarters for the dollar.

    Lonzo and his brother Chuck Cunningham and his other brother Chuck Cunningham

    OK, that's very cool for the Canadian college kids. I've been a hardcore Syracuse hoops fan ('89 Grad) since 1980 (watched Leo Rautins play with Santifer/Red Bruin), so I'm somewhat familiar with the bevy of underrated hoops talent from Canada and Niagara Falls (Harris/Flynn/Washington) area...

    Lonzo and his brother Chuck Cunningham and his other brother Chuck Cunningham

    While the NBA tries to figure out eligibility/draft rules for kids, there is a tremendous opportunity for leagues like yours. I'm surprised a league like the CEBL hasn't merged with the Australia NBL (or a Euro league) to create a place for 18yr olds, undrafted NCAA kids & Intl players a place...

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

    If we see Kawhi and Butler head West, will we continue to hear this nonsense about the Eastern Conference getting stronger/improving? I see plenty of impactful EC players that could move this offseason: MIL - Brogdon, Lopez, Middleton PHI - Butler, Harris, Redick TOR - Kawhi, Green, Gasol IND -...

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    Yea you're right, he's going to want a starting job. As much as you may disagree, Vegas gives the Celtics the 8th highest odds of winning the NBA Championship (if Kahwi jumps ship, the C's would probably go to 7). All the contenders except the Lakers and Celtics have PG's in place. So if they...

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    If the Celtics bring back Rozier to start, Beverly (high volume, efficient 3pt shooter) would be an excellent back-up PG. He probably has "plenty of suitors", because he's very good.

    Newsflash: the Celtics underperformed expectations last season

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    If Hayward is healthy I could see him OR Jaylen being trade chips. I like Sabonis, the Pacers desperately need wings, have several bigs signed and the cap space. I'd also love to trade some of our draft stock & TL for Monte Morris, PG.

    maybe Collison comes back to SoCal on the cheap. Seth Curry, TJ McConnell, Micheal Carter-Williams, Devin Harris old friends Brad Wanamaker and Shane Larkin? Alex Caruso is a lock if he shaves that dome Scour the G-League for the 3 most aggressive, defensive-minded, high energy guys for...

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

    I don't think lovegtm was questioning this trade, he was just questioning Pelinka's ability as a GM. Adding AD is a no-brainer, especially when the agent says he will re-sign there after this season. We'll see just how good Rob is with filling out this roster around AD/LBJ. The filler job...

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

    It sure looked like the Clips were throwing in the towel, at first blush it felt like a good GFIN deal for Philly. The ironic part is the Clippers won the Harris trade this season and massively in the future. They sold high on his 3pt %, the dudes' defense is bad and trending south. Jerry West...

    No worries, the Pelinka-Linda Rambis-Buss brain trust has a keen sense for undervalued talent... The Carter-Williams, Jamal Crawford, Swedish Bird and "Moose" Monroe bench is going to get it done, especially on LBJ/AD load days. :drunk: Can we just put them in the Finals now?

    Yea, I was kind of joking that Griffin owed Danny and would move his shiny, new Laker picks... 1. Agreed Family Ball circus isn't great for a young/developing squad. Get young, cheap assets while you can, before LaVar goes toxic on the Pelicans franchise. 2019 #7/8 have been rumored. 2. Griffin...

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

    I know the paints not dry, but would New Orleans care for the 2019 #22 pick for one of those future Laker picks? Hopefully, Griffin feels Danny gave the Lakers enough concern to make them pay up. David owes the C's for playing along! I agree with those that believe NOLA did a good job here...

    Laker's landing AD was predictable with Klutch/Bron firmly in control of the situation. I concur with DeJesus, credit to them. Kyrie is probably happy with this result, it will give him one more reason to sh-t on the Celtic kids as he exits. Danny has 20 other levers he can pull, I'm sure they...
