    Marshon would've been behind Allen and Bradley in the depth chart and add in the fact that Doc makes rookies earn their minutes ahead of veterans, Marshon would have gotten the same amount of playing time as JaJuan did last season.
    Bingo.

    Playing time or no playing time. Marshon will be in this league for several years. Johnson is most likely going overseas or D-League. Brooks is by far the better player. More polished and is able to start in the NBA. Johnson would be hard pressed to start a D-League game.

    Exactly.

    Brooks would not have developed so quickly had he remained with the Celtics.

    The way it works out, the C's allowed someone else to develop a player (Lee) and then brought him in. It really worked out great for Brooks ... and Lee. Kinda sucks for JJJ though.

    I don't think the issue is Brooks vs. Johnson. It's more an argument of taking the safe-bet role player vs. trading way down for a project. And then abandoning the project almost immediately. That's not a very good strategy, but also franchise players don't usually get picked 25h overall so who cares I guess.

    JJ was kind of destined to fail though. He was overdrafted, under-weight, and buried in the depth chart. I agree it's a shame that his career will probably sputter out from here, but in reality this happens to like 2/3rds of the guys drafted every year

    Lets say if the Celtics did draft Marshon though, DA still would've signed Terry and Lee. Which probably means that Marshon would've been either undressed every night or apart of the Lee S&T.

    Johnson would be a D league all star but I get your point. Danny should have taken Marshon. 100% agree.

    E'Twaun Moore had some stretches last year where he got some minutes. If Brooks had gotten those same minutes in his place, he may have shown enough to have received more PT.

    You are correct. I agree that Jajuan Johnson isn't very good. I remember saying this two years ago. M. Brooks will be NBA for years playing good. J. Johnson will be playing overseas.

    Danny missed with both E. Moore and J. Johnson.

    He also missed with Fab Melo, I didn't like the pick, I still don't like it. He is a bust, book it...

    I like Sully pick, just hope he can stay healthy.

    e. moore was a very late second-rounder, I dont think you can call that a miss!

    Ok...apples to apples.

    If given a bag of potato chips or that pick.......everyone takes the chips.

    The pick wasn't very good. Reminded me at the time of a poor mans Joseph forte, also another bad Celtics pick, but I digress.

    No...I get your point. It's a late pick, but we got nothing. Compond that with J. Johnson and it looks worse for that draft.

    Seems like it is official.

    Lang Greene‏@LangGreene

    Mavericks waive Delonte West, which was expected due to the suspensions and emergence of Eddy Curry who needed a spot on the 15-man.


    *** Nope, don't want him back in Boston. This was purely an informative posting.
