Wouldn’t it be ironic if one of our last pieces to one of the worst trade ever produces another one of one of the worst trades ever?


Ainge has passed the point of getting fair value. He will need to overpay in any trade. Even when we think he overpays, we come away impressed with his coup.

If he’s not Executive of the Year, I have no clue who could be. He overhauls the roster, returning just 4 from a conference finals team through two trades few have the cojones to even ponder, let alone pull the trigger on. Which means Stevens needs to be CotY, it should be the first of many. Doing what he has done since losing GH is simply incredible. /tangent

Don't forget the Phoenix/IT trade which was an offshoot of the Brooklyn trade.

The crazy thing is that, if Fultz does indeed turn out ot be a bust, not only did Danny achieve one of the most remarkable rebuilds of all time, but he also will have potentially damaged or destroyed three of our conference rivals in the process, Brooklyn, Philly, and Cleveland.

This is "There Will Be Blood"-level theft.


off-topic, but I really didnt like that movie.
I get that, it's not for everyone.

And it was certainly grim lol
Daniel Day Lewis is obviously really really incredible in it, but I just didnt like the story.

The milkshake scene I did enjoy. I just didnt like the plot. The guy just get more and more evil for 2.5 hours.

What's wrong with that? It's the same story as for a random poster on this blog during a Celtics' game loss.

Good Lord, somehow his shot is looking even worse the longer this thing drags on.

This has to be the yips at this point, right?

How the hell do you develop that kind of hitch in your shot, especially in a free throw?

It's the yips, but the yips are really eating him up because he was already mentally deficient to begin with. I can't believe Ainge managed to score an extra top 5 pick for the privilege of avoiding all this.

Wow I am thinking it is now a significant chance he is never a good NBA player.

The guy who said “Jesus” after that brutal second free throw. Fultz completely deceived me, but at least he deceived Philly too ;D

Strangest hitch I've seen.  I wonder if he didn't do serious nerve damage to back or shoulder and his shot will never again be good.  I can't believe that is mental.  That shot is worse in form than most junior high kids who don't play basketball all the time.

Hayward is INJURED and taking spot up shots in LA right now, and his shots look WAY better than Fultz's  :P

Hayward is even draining them all  :o

If he doesn't recover I'll actually feel bad.  He was legit in college and for an injury to ruin his career before it starts is heartbreaking.

it's funny that he fake acts like his arm is in pain after that really ugly shot.

It's full blown yips, and it is worse than any physical injury you can get.

Yeah, that arm is not injured. Look at the extension he can get on layups (from the same practice session).
