lol that would be so sick

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 15:05 (one year ago) link

we cn only pray for a huge personality conflict between bron and ben

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:21 (one year ago) link

im really not enthused abt the carpet bagger lebron james interfering with the celtics rightful 2019 nba championship

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:23 (one year ago) link

sixers need to wait their turn

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:23 (one year ago) link

celtics prob in that second tier even if bron doesn't go to philly tbh

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:24 (one year ago) link

celtics won 55 and have significant improvements baked in already before making any moves

ciderpress, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:35 (one year ago) link

they'll be great in the regular season for sure

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:37 (one year ago) link

they will prob win next year

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:38 (one year ago) link

three allstars + two soon to be allstars + the best coach, the best defensive team, theyre on the verge of winning a playoff series right now without their best two players with a roster of majority under 25 y/o players and u know danny will do some good low key off season moves at the very least

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:45 (one year ago) link

i think this was supposed to be the year they go for brow but the pels didn't crash and burn again

yeah it will be interesting, I think they lack the star power to really be on the houston/GSW level when the playoffs come but they're just below

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:50 (one year ago) link

depends on the leaps the young guys make

808s & Deep States (voodoo chili), Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:53 (one year ago) link

generally the nba is about star power but thats not the only way to do it, these celtics are kinda like a detroit style ton of really good players who play well together a, except they have more star power, theyre like detroit with more stars, bout to stomp all over the flawed lakers (rockets, dubs)

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:54 (one year ago) link

brown and tatum are so far ahead of the curve and theyll be better next year, its kinda funny how everyone is just accepting that they shd beat the bucks even tho the celtics are missing their best two players and the bucks have an mvp candidate, what other team wld be in this series w/o their best two players

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:56 (one year ago) link

if bron leaves cleveland and doesn't go to the sixers i still think i'd have boston as the favorites

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

we also still take embiid's health for granted. if anything happens to him the sixers top out at a second round exit probably.

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

yeah bron to sixers cld blow up in any number of ways, but cld also be completely unstoppable, i hope it doesnt happen it sounds bad

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 16:58 (one year ago) link

if bron goes to the sixers they'd be the favorites to make the finals even w/o embiid i think

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:00 (one year ago) link

i still think Bron returns to Cleveland, though it depends on how they exit the playoffs or if they--hear me out--win it all.

omar little, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:00 (one year ago) link

in the east or overall? the latter seems premature

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:06 (one year ago) link

praying for the cavs to succeed now

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:07 (one year ago) link

yeah the east obviously xp

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:10 (one year ago) link

this is not directed at anyone here but one thing I think tends to be under appreciated is when teams like boston play well without a superstar player or players, there is only so much improvement possible from re-adding that superstar or superstars. the team dynamics change in ways that compensate for their absence, other players grow into roles, etc. adding these players back is not the same as just adding the value that was missing, it is a proportionately smaller improvement

that said the playoffs is where that will really matter so idk. celtics will def be east favorites next year (pending bron decision part 3) but healthy warriors and rockets teams still seem a cut above to me

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:11 (one year ago) link

― J0rdan S., Thursday, April 26, 2018 12:57 PM (thirteen minutes ago)

yeah for sure

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:11 (one year ago) link

unless they have lebron lol

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:11 (one year ago) link

wow one post the celtics dont have enough star power the next adding a superstar wont do anything

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:13 (one year ago) link

my take adding extremely good players is good, will improve the team a lot, but ill guess well just have to see what the outcome of replacing shane larkin with kyrie irving and marcus morris with gordon hayward is

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:16 (one year ago) link

also replacing all their young guys with one year more experienced versions of themselves

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:21 (one year ago) link

wow one post the celtics dont have enough star power the next adding a superstar wont do anything

― lag∞n, Thursday, April 26, 2018 1:13 PM (five minutes ago

heh that first post was referring to the fact that hayward and irving might not be the sort of superstars necessary to give the big dogs a real run, but we'll see

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:21 (one year ago) link

yeah celtics will be better next year. east this year is also quite weak, as always

k3vin k., Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:22 (one year ago) link

im not talkin bout the east im talkin bout all the marbles

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:26 (one year ago) link

celtics gonna be really good even their two dogs havent hit their prime quite yet. both coming off major injuries tho....

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:32 (one year ago) link

nvm gordo just turned 28 last month. thought he was younger

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 26 April 2018 17:33 (one year ago) link

I seem to recall Kyrie Irving giving one of the big dogs some problems two years ago

I am real worried about his knee tho

Got a good laugh out of ESPN's "Possible Kawhi Trades" article. Buncha ninnies.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 27 April 2018 16:59 (one year ago) link

I read that bullshit and I was like y'all get paid for this

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 27 April 2018 18:34 (one year ago) link

ive decided kawhi is staying

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Friday, 27 April 2018 18:35 (one year ago) link

Carmelo Anthony, asked how he feels his season with the Thunder went: "Interesting."

opt in —> demand trade

will obviously be the path here. PG is def signing elsewhere too.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 28 April 2018 21:13 (one year ago) link

@royceyoung
Melo asked about possibly coming off the bench: "I'm not sacrificing no bench role. So that's out of the question."

Remember before this season when the players were up in arms cos melo was ranked 60th or w/e by espn...

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 28 April 2018 21:32 (one year ago) link

what team is gonna willingly drop $28m on this iteration of melo tho

Clay, Saturday, 28 April 2018 21:43 (one year ago) link

its an expiring so it wouldn't be too hard

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 28 April 2018 21:47 (one year ago) link

most likely tho is he opts in and they cut him

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Saturday, 28 April 2018 21:51 (one year ago) link

posted it to the other thread by mistake but Miami and Portland will both want to shed salary

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 28 April 2018 23:21 (one year ago) link

Pacers looking good going into the offseason. Haven't really thought too much about what pieces they should add ... kinda intrigued to see if this team can just grow a bit. They m/l have everyone signed through one more year, then basically all of their olds (Bojan, Jefferson, Joseph, Collison, Young/Lance) are up, with the youngs Domas/Turner/Oladipo on team-friendly contracts. Glenn Robinson III in a weird spot ... was supposed to be the starting lock-down SF this year and kinda got derailed (and the Pacers were probably expecting to commit some money to him after that). Hope they figure out a way to sign him on a short deal this summer. Also unexpectedly fell in love with Trevor Booker as a bench dude, would love if they had a spot for him as well.

Kinda wish they'd managed to develop Ike Anibogu to the point where they could use him defensively in the playoffs. Really excited to see him and Edmond Sumner get playing time next year; both are more intriguing bench dudes than TJ Leaf. Wouldn't mind Leaf, Joe Young, and Poythress cleared out.

They will be paying Monta Ellis through 2022.

call all destroyer, Monday, 30 April 2018 01:25 (one year ago) link
