  • Let's Go Celtics!
Jeff played very well tonight, but that's not surprising. We all know he's capable of games like this. The question with him is can he do it consistently? That's what this season will be about finding out.

Kris Humphries just hustles. I really enjoy watching him. He finds a way to grab those rebounds.

I love Avery's defense, but his I'm desperately hoping he can find a niche offensively. Him becoming a more well rounded player will help speed up the rebuild.

Courtney Lee is still useless.

Brandon Bass - any trade takers? Move him while he's hot Danny!

Vitor is a nice surprise. I think he can be a pretty good rotation player.
 
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

K.O. has Hands like Roberto Duran.
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.

So, Jeff Green looked solid tonight. Just needs to be consistent.

Love it.  I was worried we'd win tonight seeing as Toronto is almost as bad as we are.  Glad to see we pulled out the loss. 

I... dont know what so say... Never in my life have I seen a fan so ecstatic for a loss. What in the world is happening...?

He didn't play well but stone hands?  That's Bass.  Olynyk has a lot of touch.  You aren't a great passer with stone hands.

We're tanking.  This is what we should hope for every night... hard-fought losses vs fellow lotto squads.

C's are going to be bad this season but I don't root for a loss. I want a stud prospect from the draft but I'm don't want to tank that sets a bad example for young players.

We tanked the moment we traded KG and Pierce.  You're looking at a squad that has thrown the season.  Embrace it.  It'll be great in the long-run.

Look, I get it, we are not good enough to win or even make the Playoffs this season, I accepted that three days (or maybe more) after PP and KG are gone..

But cheering because we lost? Is this our identity now? Are we a team that should embrace losing? Is this what was being implied here? Losing but trying to win is one thing, welcoming and encouraging sucking is another. And good Lord.

But of course, losing right now would CERTAINLY mean winning in the next seasons. That's always a sure thing, just like in '98. Let's be proud that we are losers now because it will GUARANTEE us to becoming winners in the years to come.

SMH. I wonder what Larry Bird thinks about embracing losing?

If we can lose lots of games unintentionally, in the sense that they are all hard fought, and we can develop our young talent and land a stud in the draft this season will tick all my personal boxes.

Andrew Wiggins / Lou Williams
Luol Deng / Francisco Garcia
Anthony Davis / Damjan Rudez
Brook Lopez / Aron Baynes

Ainge knows what he is doing here. What is the use in scrapping as hard as we can for the 8th seed, when we can just tank hard for a year and Rebuild quickly.

This looks like a once every 10 years draft. Take advantage so we don't have to suck for 20 years again...

Exactly.  So I'm definitely comfortable with this
