This kid is insanely talented, and he has been so dominant to begin. Early sample size but 33 PPG / 6 APG / 5 RPG. You really can't play better than that.

I think he's the number one pick in the draft today, without a question. I would gladly take him, if we had the chance.

I'll be glad if he will be picked up by either Sixers or Pelicans because the last thing we need is another guard. Sixers already took the BPA approach and have no success on doing it. I'd rather get another wing or big this time.

We don't have enough talent to pass up on the BPA regardless of position.  If Fultz is clearly ahead of everyone else, you don't bypass him to choose a lesser player.  In two years, IT, Bradley and Smart will all be free agents and I don't think Ainge will re-sign them all.

He's very interesting. I'm trying to think of NBA comparisons.
There's something like a mix between James Harden and Westbrook, without the extreme athleticism of Westbrook, but more control and finesse like Harden.

I wonder if he could pull off many of those finishes around the basket in the NBA vs 7 ft defenders on a nightly basis. Something tells me he's one of those guys that just finds away to put the ball in the basket no matter how ugly it looks.
"We are lucky we have a very patient GM that isn't willing to settle for being good and coming close. He wants to win a championship and we have the potential to get there still with our roster and assets."

quoting 'Greg B' on RealGM after 2017 trade deadline.
Read that last line again. One more time.

I want Fultz on the Celtics, so the #20 jersey stays away from the rafters.  ;D

you draft for talent, trade for need. Why pick lesser players for a need when the needs change in a few years? You wind up with a roster of lesser talents.

Draft the best player and then trade for need. That is the best way to go.

How how this worked out for us, it has not.  This is a broad based assumption but it does not apply here.   If you are honest what do we need right now?   One athletic big who can rebound.     Would adding a talented guard or win fix our rebounding woes, nope.   We are a piece or two away, not trying to build an asset pile.  That might be true if it was reversed.   Ainge does not always take the most talented anyway, he has a penchant for taking guys who are flawed whom he hopes pans out.   He rarely takes a guy with potential though Brown and Rozier are guys you can argue that but his record for bigs is poor.

No one wants to trade with Danny because he has a record of winning trades.   This is not NBA Live where trades happen easily.

To all who are opposed to taking another guard: not taking BPA with the #1 overall pick would set this franchise back multiple decades.

This. We have one year left (after this one) of AB and IT. Then, we're going to have to make some tough decisions. If Fultz is the best, you take him and mark him as the future.

17 points (6-9, 2-4 from 3) / 8 assists / 7 rebounds / 3 steals / 2 blocks last night. Highly efficient and dominant as before.

Barring an incredible season from Harry Giles, he is going #1.

From what I have seen of Fultz and to a less extent Ball (neither I have watched a ton yet) both look like big time prospects. This draft is really going to put the Cs present and future on the table. If DA thinks he can really honestly build a championship team with IT as a starting PG then the pick needs to be moved for a player to add to the current roster. However if the opposite is true and DA may find himself drafting a stud PG prospect on draft night and having to move IT. My concern is how Horford would fit/feel in that situation.

The Cs maybe able to make that level of move without effecting the team in the win/loss column. Looking at the elite PGs drafted in recent years and the best Wall, Irving, Curry have been very productive as rookies if Fultz and or Ball could be the same the Cs come out as a comparable short term team and drastically better long term team.

They didn't "lose" Teague -- they got rid of him because Schroder made him redundant. Other than that, they replaced Horford with Howard. Injuries or no injuries, our roster is not any more superior than it was last season. Probably less.

There will be some funky locker room conversations going on next year if we do luck in and grab him...
