why are is this starting at bottom of hour.

CELTICS should not help Sixers. If they are so greedy they want to keep the #1 pick then they should  not be gifted the 3. The only way we should give them 3 is for 1. #1 for #3 and #16 plus Rozier.
I strongly disagree. You must do anything you can do to get better. At this point in the rebuild you cant worry about helping other teams. You do whats best for you.

What's the policy on spoilers here?

It would be great if people don't post the picks before it's announced on TV.  Not that I expect people to follow that.    :)

yes, that would be much appreciated

It'll be tough to moderate.

But Don, you're the world's greatest moderator. I believe in you. If anyone can do it, it's you!  :police:

Woj tweets. Even Ford gets them sometimes, too. I see them on my Bleacher Report app.

Even though everyone is saying the draft picks are useless, I'm seeing on Twitter that these first round draft picks are the most valuable that people have ever seen with who they're trading them for (12 for Teague, 20 for Young, Belineli even got 23?!).
Wait, someone gave up a 1st rounder for Belineli? Some GMs...

refreshing CB every 5 seconds!

Lol there's going to be way too much traffic tonight.

Yeah, I'm expecting this thing to crash at multiple times.  Especially right before/after the Celtics picks.

I still disagree with them talking about positionless basketball when it comes to Philly. It doesn't matter if you play "positionless" basketball when you have three to four guys that can't play together.
