    Jayson Tatum - Contract extension - Mission Accomplished (now with more $$$$$)

    So, maybe Ainge would have taken Jackson at #3 if Philly had taken Tatum? Either way, I think Ainge must have felt confident that there was going to be a good player available at #3, no matter what happened. If he didn't, he must really like to gamble because to trade the #1 and get stuck with a...

    2024 NBA General Offseason Thread

    I'm assuming the cash Utah receives is equal to the buyout. So, basically, this is a S&T of Dunn for a second round pick swap, right? I thought a S&T would at least net a 2nd round pick (not just a pick swap) but I guess Trader Danny is getting soft in his golden years :)

    Jayson Tatum - Contract extension - Mission Accomplished (now with more $$$$$)

    My personal belief is that Ainge may felt like Tatum was a better player than Fultz, but I also believe that he must have thought that Fultz was still a good pick at #3. To put it another way, if Philly did take JT, I think Ainge would have been perfectly happy taking Fultz at #3 and felt like...

    Jaylen Brown 2024-25, Year 9: What they gonna say now?!

    Free throws is probably one of the 'easiest' things for him to work on this Summer. Playmaking would be something that would add to his game, but seems a little more difficult to work on that in the offseason as it's not as much an individual skill.

    Luka Doncic: Overrated, Underrated, or Irradiated?

    On a somewhat related note, I was reading a Bleacher Report article on the next wave of potential NBA stars that could ask to be traded. It was amazing to me how many players fit into the same, general archetype: - High per game scoring averages - Relatively high assist rates - Very high...

    Wyc ownership group planning to make Celtics available for sale

    When you are talking big money, the advantages of where you live is huge. I don’t know how FL handles cap gains relative to MA, but just think about the difference in income tax he would pay in MA vs FL on the sale of the Celtics.

    Team USA 2024

    I think Team USA should have replaced Kawhi with Brown. I think Brown has a legit beef of not getting selected. Because they selected White, his teammate, instead of Brown - I wish he would have kept his beef to himself.

    Huh? I thought he wasn’t even one of the best 100 players in the NBA? How does he make the Olympic team? /s

    Wyc ownership group planning to make Celtics available for sale

    Felger and Mazz were ripping him pretty hard yesterday. They had a bit of a point where Wyc has been talking about how it's all about banners, not about making money and then we learn: 1) It wasn't really Wyc's money 2) They are now selling before the tax bills come due (or at least start to...

    Wyc ownership group planning to make Celtics available for sale

    Do you remember when Shaughnessy used to mock Paul Gaston as ThanksDad mercilessly? I'm surprised he hasn't resurrected that. BTW, everyone seems to be quoting as fact that Wyc owns less than 2% of the team. But, is that actually confirmed? We have Shaughnessy saying "okay if I say you have...

    Top 10 Boston athletes

    Football and baseball are still much more popular in Boston than the Celtics. It amazes how much sports radio can talk about the Patriots even when they do absolutely nothing.

    2024 NBA General Offseason Thread

    Doesn’t seem that long ago that Harrison Barnes was seriously being talked about as a trade target for the Celtics (in exchange for a FRP?). Is he now a negative asset? Fortunes sure change quickly in the NBA.

    Celtics Salary Cap/Tax/Apron Restrictions Situation

    So, Pritchard will cost them $20 million ($13 million in tax plus $7.5 million in salary)? Yikes. Don't buy any green bananas, son. Thanks for the half court shots.

    Celtics Salary Cap/Tax/Apron Restrictions Situation

    Can someone do the math on the luxury tax bill with and without making that move? I'm assuming there is some repeater penalty?
