Celtics Talk / Re: For those who dont want us to be an 8 seed...
« Last post by gpap on Today at 11:06:21 PM »
Remember 2013? We were a 7th seed abd went up against the heavily favoured knicks and gave them a good run... That was fun wasnt it?? And we still got olynyk in the draft... Anything is possible so u may as well give the young guys some playoff experience and the vets a chance to showcase their talents and up their trade value...

I agree. Everyone says that being a 6-8th seed is NBA purgatory but I don't think it's any worse than missing the playoffs every year, hoping for fools gold in the draft and ending up with the number 6 pick (sound familiar?)

Not to mention, the Cavs will probably keep winning the draft lottery every year anyway.

If the Celts can acquire a couple veterans right now and make a playoff push this season, they should do it.

Right now, the Eastern Conference is wide open as Miami will no longer be monopolizing the number 1 seed.

Pointless, rather have the draft pick, almost as I want the team to be good in the long run rather than mediocre forever.  Playoffs = prolonged rebuild, I think.  I want us to be good as soon as possible though and I know tanking does not always work.   But this team is going nowhere.   I hope our guys develop and build value.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD TANKING DOESNT MEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS!!! Every time we tank we get screwed over in the lottery.. We have enough assets and should have cap space to make some moves and be in contention but tanking isnt the answer for everything, or anything for that matter..

Totally different in 2013. We came into the season expecting to be a top team.
Doesnt matter.. We were still the underdogs in that series and we put up a fight without Rondo..

Chicago, cleveland, washington, and charlotte are the only locks in the east... Celtics can easily sneak up to a #6 seed (indy or miami would be #5) and go against a washington team and perhaps sneak into the second round and go against the cavs where it will most likely (not certainly) end

PLEASE explain to me how in the name of all things logical is Charlotte a LOCK and Indy, Miami, and Toronto NOT locks???

Charlotte signed a player that had UNDER a 15 Efficiency Rating for the year which is the threshold for an AVERAGE NBA starter in Lance.  Stephenson has NOT yet arrived and he may NEVER be more than a good role player with the possibility of exploding on the court leading to multiple suspensions.  Then their other GREAT signing was arguably the WORST 2nd pick in the last stinking 10 years, Marvin Williams, all the while LOSING the guy that connected the dots per MJ, McRoberts!!!

Looking forward to a really nice explanation on this.

Efficiency ratings dont mean squat and their team can only go up  from last year with Lance and their rookies... They just have the feeling of a very good basketball team and i feel theyll make great strides this year... Toronto r far from a lock and neither r miami especially if wades knees give up again which i think will happen... Indy r pretty much a lock but i think theyll be severely hurt by lances departure and their bench took another hit when Turner left... If hibbert continues his playoff form they could be facing disaster...
Didnt have time for ur "really nice explanation" but well here u go..

Locks (no order)
Cavs
Heat
Wiz
Pacers
Bulls
Raps

The last 2 is wide open. And we know the 76ers and bucks have little to no chance

If Sterling can't be happy walking away w/ a $2B sale for this historically moribund franchise that he's not even worthy of, then I hope he wins in court, gets to retain control, watches all the talent leave (coach, star players) and watches the value of the franchise drop dramatically.

The value of that team could plummet down to one dollar and it still wouldnt knock the smile of Sterlings face if he comes out victorious in all this.

He has millions even without the Clippers, this fight isnt about money its about spite, winning, and his personal rights.  On top of all that, he wouldnt even live long enough anyway to see the team plummet in value anyway

I disagree. Atl like charlotte/new york is not a guarantee to make the playoffs.

Atlanta is getting one of the BEST centers back on the court in Al Horford.  They also signed a very good defensive SG in Thabo Sefolosha and then drafted a solid PF in Adreian Payne.

I think there is virtually NO way that they are not in the playoffs in the top 7 spots.

They should be better than the Hornets!!!!

Its his third year. He will come into trainning camp at 255 or hopefully at 260.  That will make him harder to push around.  He has advanced quickness and pretty good athleticism for a center

He could be a starter in this league and for the celts for the long term. Its up to him
