    I figured the playoffs would suck again this year, but not this badly. Celtics/Wizards was the only remotely exciting series and we're witnessing what it's led to.

    You realise our GM is one of the best negotiators in the business right? He got Kobe a $48m contract over two years right after an Achilles tendon rupture. Also with PG not making the All-NBA teams, the Pacers have no financial advantage in free agency, they have literally zero leverage. The only other team that might trade for him just got massacred by LeBron.

    I don't entirely believe that.
    He's obviously going to the Lakers at some point...I never denied that.

    Hoping the 76ers pick up someone real neat...I'd like us to either trade up and grab Fultz or trade down and grab Monk and Issac or some point guard. I just don't like Fox, Tatum, or Jackson as a fit.

    Worst thing the Internet did was compare the Celtics to the Tune Squad.

    It wasn't a slam dunk, but I'll take it. Eat a dick Cleveland. Celtics in 6.

    Brad Stevens best out-of-timeout-play coach in history.

    More people need to talk about how godly Curry has been. He's weirdly underrated this season after being talked about non stop for the last two seasons.

    This postseason he's been good. But he wasn't spectacular during the regular season. He had (only) 24 PPG. While that's good on its own, and he didn't have the ball as much, he still had a lot and can't play defense for his life.

    Good is an understatement for his postseason numbers! Also regarding his D, he was top 10 in in the NBA for defensive win shares last season and has been an above average defender for years now, smh people need to stop with the media narratives and do some Googling.

    I didn't know that...probably because I don't have the time to pay attention to advanced stats.
