Just so everyone knows, Rasheed Wallace has the most money spent in NBA fines in $205,000. That's nearly $100,000 more than the 2nd place finisher of Stephen Jackson at $108,000.

There's also this little nugget:

Quote
Rasheed Wallace, who played with numerous NBA teams, including the Detroit Pistons and the Portland Trailblazers, holds the NBA record for most technical fouls. At the close of the 2012-2013 season, he had amassed 317 technical fouls in his career.

Rasheed Wallace also holds the single season technical foul record, which he obtained while playing with the Trailblazers during the 2000-2001 NBA season. He received 41 total technical fouls and was ejected seven times during the course of the season. He also holds second place on the same NBA record list for obtaining 38 total technical fouls during the 1999-2000 season.

I think it might be hyperbole to say that Cousins was worse than Sheed...
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

Are there any big men out there that are the "Celtics type of player"? Seems like Bill Russell wouldn't fit these days because he couldn't shoot the 3. Russell wouldn't be caught dead outside the key in his day. And Parish and Cowens lived pretty close to it.

I think it's up to the coach to take these guys and fit them into the system, taking advantage of their strengths to correct team weaknesses.

That is a pile of garbage offer.

Avery, Rozier, KO, Jerebko, BKN 2018, LAC 2019

That's 3 players who likely start for them, expiring money, and two solid 1st rounders. If it took throwing in Boston 2018 I would do that too. Every piece we send is expendable except Avery. Smart and Brown will have to fill the void until we get to the draft this summer.

That's a super weak offer, too. Avery has 1 year on his contract, KO + Jerebko are free agents, and Rozier has barely cracked the rotation. Clippers picks aren't worth much. They could be staring at zero players, a late lottery pick and a late 1st for a top-20 player.

Cowers had a sweet jumper from 15-20 feet. He would have been a stretch 4 in today's game. Banger inside too.
