Even if you tank, you're probably still just getting a pick in the mid-teens b/c there are SO MANY bad teams this year (in East especially) and the C's have played neck and neck with the likes of Cleveland and MIL so far (even w/o Hayward and Morris).

I don't think Ainge and Stevens will appreciate that, and neither will Horford (guy signed here to compete, NOT tank...)

  • Be the posts you wish to see in the world.
I can't control what the team does but I will be tanking my posts for the remainder of the season in solidarity.

If this man



didn't allow us to tank when IT first arrived in BOS then I have complete trust in him to make BOS competitive even now.

Give him time and he'll max out every single one of our player's abilities - like he's done so many times before.

Even with GH's temporary situation, this is a playoff team. Kyrie WILL get better, we'll get Marcus back and the youngsters (Jaylen and Taytum) will continue to grow and shine.

Boogie Cousins has plenty of x factors over Davis but he would be soooooo much cheaper to get. He shoots 38% from 3 and basically averages 12rpg and would also help a TON keeping the other teams frontcourt from getting those pesky offensive rebounds. He also takes 4x more fta than Big Al and is 4 years YOUNGER ...getting the other frontcourt in foul trouble.

Boogie has a 7'6'' wingspan and a YUUUUGE 9'5'' STANDING REACH.

Does anyone know the un-obvious repercussions from the cap if we did:

Omer Asik (3 years $11m per)
Boogie Cousins (have to sign him in off-season)
4
Big Al

Don't want to make this into another 'get boogie' thread, but the fact is that if Ainge wanted him, he could have had him, and WITHOUT giving up Al, who by-the-way, is a 34.5% career 3-pt shooter.  That is not much worse than boogie's HIGHEST season last year 37.5%.

With hindsight I think most were proved right when saying ranking in IT's first season wouldn't have paid off. We can say the same again here. Development is what a team like this needs, guys learning to play a bigger role so that next year when we are hopefully fully healthy we can be even better.

All of these years of BKN picks and some folks still don't get it. Tanking is best outsourced.

I have given it more thought. Not possible to tank because the bulls, knicks, lakers suns and hawks are really really bad. Then the other group of teams like nets and magic  are still bad
