    Al Horford does have a history of changing his mind at the last minute. Just ask his first fiancee.

    Really thought Boston was going to have to sell low on some of its assets. Well done Celtics.

    Is Boston still hoping to pair up Horford with Durant?

    They still need someone to protect the rim. Olynyk and Sullinger don't exactly scare anyone off.

    Isn't Sullinger the size of Big Baby Davis?

    About the same. So yea they might scare off a manager of CiCis Pizza but opponents looking to drive to the rim have nothing to be concerned about.

    Yawn. Cleveland is still miles better than Boston. This may wind up being a move that means little to who comes out of the Eastern conference.

    Agree with you actually. We'll see what Brad S can pull together with his new toy, but Horford, at his age, is a win NOW signing, and the Celtics arguably aren't quite read for that. So when the team matures, you'll have Horford overpaid and totally over the hill.

    But you have to admire them for trying and raising eyebrows as a FA destination.

    What did Mauri present at the meeting? An IPAD with slides saying:

    "We are a top 5 destination in the NBA"
    "We have a superstar who everyone wants to play with"
    "We have cap space and flexibility"
    "We are the 3rd most winningest team in the NBA"

    ??

    Horford - Thanks but I'm taking my talents to a more passionate fan base with a top 5 NBA coach and players who play like a team.

    "Thanks, Mr Morey, but in Boston at least I can make it to the Eastern Conference Finals. In the West you have no guarantee of anything. One last thing....your team has an unofficial fan site, really well done. But I figure you must owe half the posters there a lot of money? The level of hate is strange."

    They're still a second round out even with Horford IMO. They have a lot of good pieces but when your best players are Thomas and Horford, I don't think you can get past Lebron.
