  1. I see now the extended gymnastics you went through to pooh-pooh the Celtics' moves. You have more faith in the Lakers and Kings than I do.
  2. Eh? What happened to the Lakers' 2018?
  3. Wait, their #1 pick this year magically degraded into a #3 this year? They didn't get anything for that?
  4. So Celtics went Tatum over Jackson. Hope it works out.
  5. I'm also hearing that Ainge is targeting Jonathan Isaac and may trade down again. I don't know much about any of these prospects so I'm just watching the shadows on the wall, but it is a little fucked up to see all this when I've been hearing for months about how great the top four or five guys are and about how Fultz is in a tier by himself. I hope Ainge is about to pull off another McHale-Parrish...
  6. The scuttlebutt I read said that Griffin was in the middle of negotiations for Jimmy Butler when he got the news that he wasn't coming back. The fact that LBJ didn't know this was coming ought to chill the hearts of Cavs fans who want to keep their guy local.
  7. Yeah, so target 2-3 years down the road. Hell, that's probably about when Jaylen Brown and whoever they draft this year will start to become real players. From the outside, trying to read the tea leaves, it seems to me that this makes it more likely LeBron leaves in a year.
  8. I didn't know Bonesy had passed. Enjoy Valhalla, LoB.
  9. And loses to the Warriors in the Finals? There's not enough defense or rebounding there.
  10. I'm glad. It means Ainge is aiming for 3 years down the line, not next year. If he really thinks one of these wing guys is a franchise cornerstone... I would also love it if Ainge was making a run at Porzingis. Though I have to admit, Evan Turner's Phil Jackson thought experiment is pretty compelling.
  11. The 2018 pick is supposed to be the Lakers' unprotected pick. So it could be good. Guess Danny Ainge is really doubling down on the 2018 draft, since he has picks from LA and Brooklyn. There's supposed to be a really talented big man coming in 2018, maybe that's what Ainge is aiming for. Or maybe he is going to make a play for someone like George or Butler... which I think would be a mistake. I'm kinda disappointed. I was eager to see what Fultz could do.
  12. Perhaps Jim Tomsula's wife could provide assistance: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/football-insider/wp/2017/06/16/meet-the-muppet-master-jim-tomsula-returns-to-the-nfl-with-the-redskins/?utm_term=.2f369effcec1 I wonder if Mrs. Tomsula could be convinced to give Dan Snyder some leadership advice.
  13. Does this mean no Chris Paul to San Antonio?
  14. When the president of the players' union (Chris Paul) is set to be one of the first to be able to draw a $200 million contract based on the big cap jump...
  15. Congratulations, by the way. I'm torn between wanting to deride your team as front-running spoiled brats who needed Zaza's dirty-ass play to pave their way to victory, and wanting to fist-bump another deliriously fortunate fan of a reviled team. I can, however, say that this is 100% good: http://www.theroot.com/nba-champion-golden-state-warriors-wont-visit-the-white-1796053158
