    Randle will go to a bottom feeder and pad his stats... LAL was a bottom feeder when they drafted him, pair that with the LA lifestyle bad combination... IMO, he'll grow up closer to 30...

    I'll agree about Kyrie being the best C's player in the past decade, but I have to disagree about mismanagement... IMO, the C's lost Kyrie as soon as that trade was finalized... DA took a chance giving an unprotected pick from a team that IMO he knew wouldn't be one of the top 5 worst teams... Smart move because you got a young, great player in his prime for 2 seasons with the idea that he'd be playing alongside AL and Hayward...

    You just said he was the best C's in the last decade, therefore having him for 2 years was a great move... All of the Kyrie to LA, playing with KD, going to the Knicks could not have just been known just 2 months ago... These rumors had to have been rumbling for quite some time... He was never going to re-sign, even if the C's happened to win a championship, get to the finals with him...

    Unfortunately everything that could go wrong did go wrong these last two seasons...

    Did you even read my post? I said add a third star to Brown and Tatum if they reach their potentials. Thatís not multiple max slot signings in one offseason.

    You seem upset that I exposed you lol.

    And yeah, Langston Galloway, Galli, etc ... theyíre great salaries - thatís exactly why theyíre trying to ditch their contracts off on other teams. They add NOTHING to our team. Thereís far better ways to reserve cap space. Iíve listed plenty in my many posts.
    You take on their contracts in exchange for assets instead of signing a vet. Why is this hard to understand? His post was clear as day and Iíve explained it to you three times now.

    Iím done reading your garbage. Youíll be blocked from now on.
    You didnít even read it though. Not one thing in this post matched up with what I actually said. I exposed you for misquoting and spinning his post, and you got mad. Itís very simple to say ďmy badĒ and move on, but instead you throw a fit. Child.

    Just throwing it out there but would you guys trade away Smart and Tatum for Draymond Green?

    I tried it on the NBA Trade Machine and it worked out. I'd personally I would rather trade Smart and the 14th pick and the 2020 Memphis Pick next yr.

    Umm no, to smart and Tatum no to smart and pick, just no. Why would getting Draymond be a good idea at all? Maybe if Kyrie and horford stayed it would make minimal sense. Just terrible. Draymond is a decent complimentary player for a championship team. Plus all the crap he's talked about Pierce a legend in Boston. Pass move on and bury that idea 🤣😂

    Neither of Kyrie's 2 years in Boston were better than IT's 2016-2017: WS/48, Win Shares, TS%, VORP, etc. etc. etc. Plus far better locker room guy and ally of Stevens. Better overall player? No. But we've seen better individual performance since PP.

    You keep regurgitating mismanagement but never provide specifics. How should Danny have handled Kyrie? By trading Terry Rozier?

    There's a chance Kyrie has to take an 11M pay cut to be the 3rd wheel in LAL. OTOH it makes most basketball sense, OTO it further punctuates what a total fraud he is. He likely chooses BK for reputation reasons and torches that operation in 2 years.

    ^ I'll also say: Kyrie's career years in Boston were, IMO, a function of being pressured to be more complete. I bet he doesn't ever consistently reach .200+ WS/48 ever in his career. Starts sliding back between 15-20 in VORP over the next few seasons.

    If we keep the picks I want:

    14: Tyler Herro
    20: Bol Bol
    22: Bruno Fernando

    Not many players IN THE NBA had a better year than Thomas that year. He came in 5th in MVP voting lol. Any other terrible arguments youíd like to put forward?

    You keep regurgitating mismanagement but never provide specifics. How should Danny have handled Kyrie? By trading Terry Rozier?
    Iíve said tons of times he shouldíve traded Rozier who was a huge problem both on and off the court. It was very clear early on that this team didnít fit well. Sitting on your *** and not making a single move isnít the way to handle that. Now weíve lost half our assets and are back to retooling/rebuilding.

    There's a chance Kyrie has to take an 11M pay cut to be the 3rd wheel in LAL. OTOH it makes most basketball sense, OTO it further punctuates what a total fraud he is. He likely chooses BK for reputation reasons and torches that operation in 2 years.
    If you think that Kyrie cares what you or the media thinks about him youíre so much further from gripping reality than I originally believed. His personality is the exact opposite of that, probably the last person in the NBA to care about that garbage.

    It makes him a fraud to take a pay cut to play for a winning team? Such a bad guy. If he choses BK it will be because theyíve been on his radar ever since he realized Boston screwed up this opportunity, not for ďreputation reasonsĒ.

    Herro is waaayyy overrated... I hope he goes earlier that way someone may slide...

    Bol Bol has foot issues... Foot issues and sports especially basketball is a big red no no...

    I like Fernando, but I think he's going to be a project... I'd rather stay with wings with all 3 picks... That's just me...

    Not necessarily a C's offseason move, but trading for TJ Warren is a good move for Indy...

    Iíve been saying no to Bol Bol this whole time and kind of ignored him because of the foot injury....hearing we are interested in him and just watched some of his game and we DEFINITELY should get this guy! Didnít realize he was the son of an NBA but heís nothing like his dad who made of sheer size and not skill. He could be that Giannis type where you look back on the draft and everyone regrets not taking him. Dump Baynes to ATL and trade up if you need to.

    Guys yes this is pretty much worst case scenario for the Celtics and what theyíve been building up for the past few years. Hayward injury, Kings pick at 14, Kyrie drama and walking out, Horford leaving, No AD.

    Our worst case scenario is Brown/Tatum/Smart picks and cap space and probably still a playoff team in the East....itís not that bad. Relax. Donít blame Danny he still set us up nicely for the future. Relax. We could be the like some of these other lowly franchises in the NBA. Relax.
