To be completely honest that pic of him and Ted Cruise together makes me want him more.

Ted Cruise in the NBA would be quite the irritant.

Please get him, Danny. I'm sold. Seriously.

Him and Smart together? They'd be McNasty and McFilthy Part two. Smart could help him hone his craft....trip folks when the refs aren't looking. All Grayson would need to do is learn how to do it on the sly. We'd be in our opponent's heads before jump ball.

Besides the extra-curricular stuff from Grayson he'd be an outside threat and provide grit and guile.

Ainge must be trippin'.

But with both Grayson and Marcus Smart we'd be a step ahead in the feisty department.

These two would get a kick out of needling our opponents.

So, according to you, drafting Grayson and retaining Smart would give us a substantial...leg up on the competition ;) ::) ;D *groan*?

Do you honestly believe that Allen's dirty play would endear himself to his teammates to such an extent that they would actually want to take a...bullet for him ;) ::) ;D *groan*?

Lol. 

Grayson isn't too encouraging as a prospect, imho.  He lacks size for a SG, but also lacks the ability to be a secondary ball-handler.  Shooting seems overhyped.  And he's a very poor defender, not just physically but mentally.  I think he'd be a better and more consistent player if he learned to better control his emotions, though.

This is awesome.

Loved Jeff Ruland. They don't make em' like they used to.

But seriously I can envision a tight game versus the Golden State Warriors next June 2019...Boston is down by 2 with seconds left...Boston has the ball...Kyrie is bringing it up the court...he accepts a good screen around the 3 point line from Big Al and shoots!!

But misses. This is one of Kyrie's few misses in this game. He, Tatum and GH have given GSW all they can handle so far.

But Marcus gets one of his signature offensive rebounds...BETWEEN BOTH Durant AND Draymond....sees an OPEN GRAYSON ALLEN in the corner...



GRAYSON MAKES THE SHOT!!! AND GETS a FOUR-POINT OPPORTUNITY after the foul!!!

Draymond is cursing and livid and gets tossed. GSW is deflated.

BOS defeats GSW in 7 games with Both Marcus' and Grayson's big plays.

I couldn't agree more. Check out this video of his career high, which has to be the most pathetic 37 point performance that I've ever seen, LOL ;D -

More importantly, check out his numbers in terms on conference play, which are quite alarming, imo. Dude's gone completely downhill since his sophomore season -

Iíve been skeptical about drafting him, but, after more thought, and some video, am thinking he is probably under valued at 27. Started 4 years at Duke, nice stroke from 3, quick release, and decent athleticism. Would be ready for backup minutes assuming we donít re-sign Larkin. Also good hedge if we donít match Smart; rumor that several teams interested in him may force Danny to protect for that. I also think this kidís antics, age, and lack of progression have probably driven his stock down lower than it should be. Could be a solid backup 1-2 guard. Reminds me of Bucks picking the Virginia kid a couple of years ago, who went on to become rookie of year. Allen wonít win that. He wonít get the minutes. But the tape suggests he will find a role in the NBA and have decent career. At 27 pick, thatís about all you should expect.

I might throw up if the Cs draft Allen.

Well done...TP!   8)

Seriously.  Unless Allen can be a back up PG and do that well, then forget it.  Give me a specialist like:

for defense: Melvin Frazier
for shooting:  Jerome Robinson

That's if my all around stud choices are gone....Thomas and and the red haired Italian...

Khyri Thomas? I thought that he was going to be off of the board by then, although, in fairness, I don't know a lot about the guy, but who is Robusto Italian? ;) ;D

I'd prefer a lot of people over Allen at 27. I would love to get Khyri Thomas, but I think he's gone along with the red-haired Italian.

We are not going to draft Grayson Allen.  Yes, his athleticism and offensive ability is something ainge would like.  But if you listen to what ainge loved about pretty much every player we have drafted recently - especially guards - itís their toughness that we rave about.

Allen is someone who was basically hysterically crying when reporters asked him about the first tripping incident in the season after he started tripping guys (his junior year).  It was embarrassing (and Iím a Duke fan). Pretty sure that tape is going to be a big negative in our mind to drafting Allen unless he has somehow shown he is much mentally tougher than he was then somehow.
