Boston as whole has been through a lot this year. The Nets Celtics trade adds to it.

Philly despite trading away Jrue did good getting Pierre Jackson in the 2nd round and that 1st round protected pick next year in a loaded draft will really prove this was a good trade off

Yeah, and plus Noel can be a game changer IMO.

Rockets hire Dwight's former strength and conditioning coach from Orlando. At this point, if we don't get Dwight I would be extremely disappointed...

[QUOTE="No_Hablo_Ingles"][QUOTE="TheWalkingGhost"][QUOTE="No_Hablo_Ingles"]Missed it, who drafted Glen Rice Jr? I watched him play in the D-League on the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and was hoping the Rockets would get him

Washington Wizards.

Thanks... I suppose that's not to bad. At least he is going to have a chance to play because Beal is injury prone

The Wizards traded for him. He was drafted by the 76ers but then traded for 2 draft picks.

What would your reaction be if they the Rockets do sign him? Also, liked I mentioned months ago, what do they do with Asik? The reason why the local Bulls didn't match the Rockets offer was the 3rd year was too much for a backup center.

Rondo trade rumors now. I think the Celtics are just trying to tank this season as hard as possible.

Honestly it makes sense. Does Rondo seem like a guy that would be patient and act like a good soldier on a rebuilding team
#217 Posted by JML897 (33120 posts) -
Yeah I'm not saying I disagree with them doing it. As we've said a million times it's usually better to flat-out suck than to be mediocre (especially considering next year's draft).
#218 Posted by Jagged3dge (3895 posts) -

I always felt like Rondo was a very good point guard only really in that Boston system, filled with players that he was able to get going.  I don't think Rondo can make a bad team good.  Which is why I've never viewed him as a top 3 PG.  Don't get me wrong, he's still great.  But if he sticks around with a depleted Boston team, expect to see the flaws in his game really exposed.

I disagree. Rondo helped Allen, Garnett and Pierce expand their years. The guy was averaging alot of assist. His flaw in his game is his shooting. The 2012-2013 Celtics was a 7th seed without Rondo. I wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics become the 5 or 6th seed with Bass, Wallace, Humprhies, Green, Kelly etc.

You know me. I'm cool, calm, and collected... Different set of circumstances dealing with Asik's contract. If the Bulls signed him, his salary would have been 5/5/15. Since the Bulls didn't sign him his salary on the books is 8.3/8.3/8.3 (despite him getting paid 5/5/15 in real life) Two idea 1. Keep Asik and never let another team get an offensive rebound ever again. 2. Trade Asik. After this season he has very high value around the league.
#221 Posted by No_Hablo_Ingles (8365 posts) -
I doubt Rondo to Dallas will happen. Both the Celtics and Dallas are trying to create more cap space. Boston is trying to get rid of Bass/Lee/Wallace and probably Jeff Green. Mavs trying to get rid of Carter and Marion to get enough space for Dwight. Won't happen.
#222 Posted by -Halftime- (10004 posts) -
Lakers looking to hire Kurt Rambis, according to Woj. Woj is credible so high hopes this happens. Kurt's a Phil guy and a good coach.

Here's a video of CWebb owning Tim Duncan (2:20 - 2:40) ... Made KG look bad at around 2:50.

Makes me sad that injuries derailed his career.

and yes, I was bored.

Wow, just when I thought his ego couldn't get any bigger. But not really surprised.

I don't believe any of the Bulls teams were the greatest of all time. They can only be the geatest of that era, having not played any of the other great teams in their prime. Prove it? It's unprove-able, and MJ knows it. He can't prove that they were the best either but he knows his fans will suck it up if he says it. But I do know 72 wins in that era doesn't necessarily mean 72 wins in the era of the other great teams.

I could be wrong but MJ seems to have an unnatural and disturbing need for people to consider him and his Bulls the greatest. The periodic comments he makes when someone is compared to him, even to the point of "screaming at the tv (as a sports show host recently quoted MJ as saying) when someone favors Lebron in some area over him. Makes me think he will be a bitter old man when his name and accomplishments fade over time as they all do and that generation won't care a bit about what he did. Just another opinion.

And, yes...push-off!

#230 Posted by JML897 (33120 posts) -
It's funny that some people commenting on that video are saying things like "talk about cockiness and arrogance, now I really don't like him anymore". Jordan's been an arrogant dick for 30 years, if you're just finding that out now then you haven't been paying attention

Now imagine if LeBron carried that same attitude.

Would of made for some ugly reads if MJ played during the internet generation.

#232 Posted by -Halftime- (10004 posts) -
MJ being an arrogant dick is precisely why I like him. Same with Kobe, Gary Payton, and pretty much all of my favorite players. This game isn't about being nice.

:lol: This is freaking classic. It was an advertisement dude. And MJ rejected the GOAT title multiple times.

#235 Posted by TheWalkingGhost (5124 posts) -

Holy hell it was an advertisement for a video game ffs

The commercials leading up to its release had people arguing over the goat team

It wasn't posted as an advertisement. Nothing in the video that I see or hear indicates it's an advertisement. I haven't seen any commercials leading up to any release.......exactly how is it obvious? I even did a short search to try to find out exactly when MJ said those things and the circumstances surrounding it, didn't find anything. Sounds exactly like something Jordan would say imo, I could easily see MJ making a video like that.

That video didn't convince me of Jordan's arrogance, it was just more confirmation of it. Now that I know it was an ad, cool, whatever. Even without that video I believe everything I posted is true.

I don't have a problem with anyone disagreeing, criticizing or even harshly criticizing any thing I post. But in this case a better response would have been "Not sure if you know this was an advertisement", "Are you aware that this was an ad..." But whatever, post what you want, I did.

If the Celtics want to go full tank mode, they would want picks in addition to expiring contracts. Knicks are more likely than the Laker.

I agree that it likely ain't happening. But I definitely think there's a good chance Rondo is gone before next season. Trade deadline at the latest

Hey does anyone else think LA's whole "STAY D12" campaign is kinda sad and pathetic I'm sure Dwight loves attention but stuff like this just makes it look like the Lakers are getting on their knees and begging Dwight to stay. I'd expect something like that from the Cavs or Bobcats, not one of the most storied franchises in sports.

Meh, this is how social media and ad campaigns are nowadays. Best believe if social media was this way back when Kobe was a free agent we'd have been seeing the same stuff.

Yeah its amusing though.  The fans went from crowning themselves last summer to pleading just to not be irrelevant next year.

This is going to be a rough few years for the Celtics. Hopefully we can trade Rondo and start anew with Sullinger, Green, and Bradley. We already got tons of picks.
