    Exactly. We couldn't even beat the spurs without Kawhi. Forget Golden State

    With CP3 we legitimately had a chance to beat the warriors

    Well, that choker was Demar DeRozan.

    To be fair, this sort of thing (negative publicity) tends to snowball. First you have one Mister Smith. Then two, four, eight, sixteen, thirty-two. I can see why Morey is out there with a fire hose. (He better check that it emits water not gasoline.)

    Lot's of good stuff in that interview. Thanks,JR, for posting. I'm starting to believe the hype.

    Interesting that in all of these interviews, Daryl sounds pretty confident about the possibility of getting a legit 3rd guy...

    The FT rate has gone up in the playoffs each of the last 4 years. It's gone WAY DOWN for Harden.

    This guy from 538 is a great follow: https://www.instagram.com/llewellyn_jean/?hl=en
    Here's a chart for example:

    "Most players get worse because competition goes up. A few get better, like James Harden gets better." Lol... no.

    I wonder if DM is being obtuse, purposefully misleading, or - most shocking but potentially true - just doesn't know this math?

    He's pandering to casual fans and non-informed fans at this point. Any informed fan - hopefully many reading the BBS - shouldn't fall for this stuff. I stopped reading after the first line because it was a blatant lie.

    My only hope is that his actual performance doesn't mirror his media performance, which has become increasingly a sham. I think he's tired. He being DM. Still going through the motions, but not with the same zest as he did a decade ago... especially since 10 years ago he probably had an analytical edge over many other teams and now he doesn't.

    I think it's hilarious that when asked "How do you convince me as the 2nd or 3rd option?" he quotes a coach that we fired and is no longer with the team. That doesn't sound very convincing to me.

    GS got worse because of the injuries making the Rockets "better." Odd dynamics but looks like the case. We couldn't even win with Durant down, but with Thompson out, new ball game.

    Now that i think about this...Morey said "it has to be sign & trade", Horford seems like will opt out to sign a new contract and to me the Celtics are going to move him sooner or later cause he's just to old for their core at this point. I really hope Horford is not that star Morey is talking about, i mean, i've always been a fan of Al and i think he would make us better, but he's not a star, i think we need a bit more.

    Looks like Horford is opting out.

    No, he's nowhere close to a star, lol.

    Yeah, and Morey said "sign & trade" not "opt in trade", that's why that came to my mind...it's possible he also said sign & trade cause it's just more simple.

    I guess at least we know he's either talking about Butler or Horford though, that's something although not exactly big news.

    Pretty much the same outcome as this season.

    Horford can't be that third star. Three years ago, maybe. He would bring versatility that Capela lacks, but God knows, he's getting longer in the tooth.

    I would rather he just say nothing and move in silence...less words, more action

    “2nd best team in the NBA the last 25 years” according to Morey, but no titles won in that span...Morey, stop...

    let’s not forget “we’ll have our pick of the free agents” talk last summer as he proceeds to bring in MCW, Ennis, and Melo

    agreed...he would help us a lot, no doubt, but potential 3rd star he is most certainly not

    I'm hopeful that some issues will be sorted out this season. If we can land a good addition to the roster then I'll feel even better.
