Sure he could use some work defensively but watching this kid play he truly is a special talent on the offensive side of the ball.

Chandler Parsons was a steal.

Would have liked to see Jeremy Tyler on the team.

They were the 2 players I had my eye on in that draft and was happy with either one.  surprised we actually had each of them at one point.

Really surprised JJJ hasn't produced.  kid has the skillset to make it in the NBA.  I guess we'll see how much of a bust he is if he can't get called up by someone this year.  Houston dumping him had to have been a wake-up call for him

I think I wanted Davis Bertans in that draft.  I might have also been happy with Jimmy Butler or Jon Leuer at the time.

Since hindsight is 20/20, Danny should have taken Chandler Parsons.

Scoring guards are dime a dozen. Celtics aren't missing anything. Marshon is nothing special.

Brooks would have been firepower off the bench for Boston, and if he was retained there and got stuff done his rookie, year, there would have been more of a reason to dump Ray Allen last season and actually get something for him. 

I wanted Kenneth Faried.  Too bad Danny couldn't have moved up for him.  Using hindsight, Lavoy Allen would be quite useful, as would Kyle Singler or the aforementioned Parsons.

They are missing a decent trade asset at the very least.

Ainge turned JJ pick into Courtney Lee. It counts as a win.

And now Ainge can turn Courtney Lee into a better win

Brook likely wouldn't have gotten OFF that bench for Boston.

The best thing that could have happened to him at that spot in the draft, did:  He got traded to a crappy team that could afford to play him.

I don't agree.  The guy has a ton offensive talent, and Boston's stable culture could have helped him become more of a well rounded player. The Cs were starved for offense last season.

I was praying for Kenneth Faried to keep falling.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale
