    Unfortunately, Williams had a beast game yesterday against the Pels. On top of that a nationally televised game. He has only been getting minutes the past 5 games. If Tucker is not enough to get him, then call Morey and see if Tucker will get us Tony Bradley. Like Williams this guy needs a chance to showcase his skill set. Would prefer Williams, but his past 5 games has put the league on notice.

    No, Bradly or Williams dont take us to the WCFs, but either add a solid roster piece.

    Yep, you're a Boston fan, all right.

    Stone: "I'll send you Oladipo into your trade exception for a 2nd rounder."
    Ainge: "WHAT? HA! A 2nd rounder? I can draft better with that 2nd than you could with a lottery pick!"
    Stone: "Uh, it seemed like a good deal for y---"

    so my bill Simmons takes includes something that you agree with and say I’m correct on? Weird flex. Whose hyping nesmith? Bill Simmons? Certainly not me, he’s underperformed and just played his way into any minutes at all and actually been disappointing thus far minus the last like 3 games.

    get your facts straight when you quote me, I’m pretty fair, not hyperbolic and typically agree with many knowledge posters here. I also hate bill Simmons.

    no, but I’m old enough to remember 6 weeks when Gordon’s contract was an albatross and u all hoped he could be dumped in a harden deal. Miss me with that. I’m good.

    joke fell flat. Sorry

    I like Bill Simmons.

    That's the second time you've been very reactive when I'm just being endearing.

    Are you from Brookline?

    he played really good in the raptors series and the last year also he’s shown flashes. This isn’t new to Celtics fans it’s new to people nationally. His setbacks have been due to injury and immaturity and that’s why he hasn’t gotten more minutes. Losing a young player on a rookie deal with real upside for the right to pay a 36 tucker only for the Celtics to still have flaws ain’t it imo

    I had a few friends from there in college. They were very intelligent and thoughtful but could flip a switch immediately and be all GET OUTTA HERE in the drop of a pin.

    He hasn't been an albatross now. He's moved out from Harden's shadow, maybe. Oladipo has had the tough part fitting in.

    I like your takes, but they do remind me, trading with Boston is nigh on impossible. And we have players that'd help your team (although, "How much?" is a good question).

    But you should hold onto Smart. One thing we lack is that second real distributor; when Wall sits we look like (are you old enough to remember "Bull Durham"?) "a monkey f***ing a football."

    Kemba Walker is a millstone around the Celtics' necks and that's the tough part for your team.

    There are different ways to win. Key word being WIN.

    The shet we are playing now is not winning ball.

    This is why Rockets FO are doubling down on what they know will create structure to win:

    5 Out offense + switch everything defense

    Size of players are secondary to skillset.

    Timelord doesn't fit our team anymore anyway.

    If I'm Stone, I stay away from trading with guys like Danny Ainge and Pat Riley.

    They'll steal his lunch money AND kick his ass, and Stone will smile and actually thank them for it.

    yea good comparison... much like capela who can catch lobs, switch out on the perimeter if needed and run the floor.

    Rockets have enough FRP.

    The point of FRP is to acquire players like Wood.

    Giving up young players is going arse backwards.

    Adding Timelord to team with Wood is a luxury.

    Both are modern day 5's and Wood is MUCH better offensively while Timelord is better defensively.

    Rockets have bigger needs, greater priorities at other positions.

    And trading with Boston is always a losing proposition, if Rockets want to double down at the 5 spot by adding another young pivot, Mo Bamba is my target.

    And unlike Robert Williams, Bamba is a threat from 3.

    Bamba is also much taller, longer and younger.

    Yep, I think Aaron Gordon is a mediocre basketball player, and I'm pro trading everybody for picks. Forever enemies.

    Jarret Culver might be worth a look. If he could get minutes to work on his shot he might be a real player. I think he could have a tall ceiling. Something like a better Caldwell-Pope or an Andre Igoudala kind of guy. I'd rather watch him than PJ Tucker that's for sure.

    Did we ever have rights to Josh Jackson?

    D-Rock & Boston84 what's your opinion on Bradley (76ers). Could Tucker get him? With Cousins leaving we need front court help asap. Thinking Williams or Bradley are a huge upgrade to Patton. I'd even overpay, within reason.

    Bradley has upside but right now he is Justin Patton type player, backup at best.

    I'd rather go big game hunting.

    Mo Bamba has potential to be a star, and he is there for the taking.
