    Jaylen Brown: Will he be enough in Year 8?

    Or Haliburton, because the series. But what if it is Tatum <joking>

    But the "uni-korner" three would be fun... that's all I got.

    Celtics vs Da Culture - Round 1 (FIGHT!)

    I guess my point was that he isn't having as negative of an impact on offense as I might have thought. And his defense - while not stifling- has produced (g2 aside)

    Celtics vs Da Culture - Round 1 (FIGHT!)

    It is hard to argue those numbers. I thought he was forcing things at the rim in game 2. Or just coming up a bit short - was wondering if that nagging (was ot his shoulder) was impact his finishing... If you like the way they played in game 3, I don't know why you'd make a change. As fun as...

    Celtics vs Da Culture - Round 1 (FIGHT!)

    I only saw the first period, but it looked like the lane was congested. Jb drove a couple times and was mobbed. Also Miami was reaching and poking for the ball quote a bit. I thought countering with mid post moves (jb's fade at the stripe, jt closer to the baseline) might have lossened thongs...

    2023-2024 General NBA Season Thread

    Like in the jrue salary range? Maybe? He's taller and better offensively (completely subjective assessment on my part). Is terrible when standing in the corner shooting threes, better with more usage (more subjective opinion). He's won some games, but never won anything... I'd maybe be yes...

    Pritchard Extended

    He still has the habbit of picking the ball up too often in the paint. I wish he would keep his dribble alive... maybe that is a reflection on his speed of decision making.

    2023-24 Celtics

    Reminds me of PJ too - but PJ was in Europe through his age 26 season. I assume his stroke as evolving over there... Tillman has time to develop it, but it is probably not happening this season. If it comes to Tillman or Luke on the roster next year I am not sure which way I side... Love what...

    I hate it when Lebron makes me like him. He seems like a genuine good dude.

    Let's Predict the 2024 Red Sox Season

    @Rovin Romine I updated my vote to 78 after giolito news... in this post http://sonsofsamhorn.net/index.php?threads/lets-predict-the-2024-red-sox-season.41886/post-6011701

    Let's Predict the 2024 Red Sox Season

    i just reduced my vote to the bucket below. I wasn't expecting a 20 game winner here, so I am thinking maybe 4 games off of where I was. I was at 82 (my 1/2 full lens) but thinking maybe 78 now (still optimisitic given the news?).

    Let's Predict the 2024 Red Sox Season

    Optimistic in me is voting 82, 1 win over 500. However, I don't see the depth to overcome any prolonged absences, don't trust the "d" at third, and think Breslow will have no problem moving veterans. So maybe 77 is more likely. Still I am intrigued enough to tune in and see if Duran can...

    Contract Conundrum: Do We Sign Jrue, Derrick, Sam? For How Much?

    Would be fun to see him (JB) on a running team like Indy or Sac.

    JD Davison, 2nd round pick

    Isn't a bit telling that he isn't being rewarded with minutes prior to the allstar break. Perhaps they want him to focus on where he is... but 15 minutes of run in a low out before the allstar game is a nice reward for someone who is grinding it out in portland - if they are in fact grinding it...

    Too Many Hitters? How the Red Sox Draft Strategy Changed

    The other side of this is the international players (starting with the period they signed Flores) - but it still looks hitter heavy... But from a count perspectiove looks like lots of investment in "cheap" arms (1/2 the signees but a fraction of the overall budget) Here are all the pitchers...

    Jaylen Brown: Will he be enough in Year 8?

    And Springer. I think the new folks can turn up the physicality when needed - while not allowing the top 6 to get drawn into foul trouble

    Should the Sox sell high on Jarren Duran?

    The other way to consider him is at his career averages. His OPS+ is 96 (improving each of the three years, even there is some regression from 2023's performance), with better than average base running, and perhaps improving defense in center? I am open to trading him, but see that maybe there...

    Jaden Springer to Celtics for 2nd rounder

    Avery is exactly what I thought when watching his on ball highlights. I don't remember much of his early offense besides his back cuts. Long shot to develop averys marksmanship, but he doesn't need to be able to hit above the break to be useful - if he can be respectable from the corner its a...
