The 76ers look good, really good. Embiid is a top center in this league and Ben Simmons is going to be an all NBA player.Fultz looks like he could be something as well. They also have a good amount of cap space.

I think a great rivalry could brew between the Celtics and the 76ers. Brown vs Simmons, Tatum vs Fultz to determine who should have been the number 1 pick. Embiid vs ???.

That's the problem. The Celtics don't have a big man star. I love Tatum and Brown but I think we need one last young potential star to pair with them. The Celtics to this day struggle with protecting the paint. Baynes has been good defending it but he is only out there for an average 18 minutes a game. I believe he does not provide enough offense to justify him being out there longer.

I believe now is the time for Danny to cash in on a true young big man. It is time to set the foundation for a young big three to develop alongside our own big three. That way we shore up our weakness and are ready when Philly comes knocking.

The Celtics have the better shooters.

The Lakers will hook us up in the lottery and get the second pick so you can match up Embiid vs. Ayton.

BOS, PHIL, & MIL.  It'll be like the early to mid 80s all over again.

That is the kind of overly optimistic post that deserves a tommy point.  Here ya go...:)

I know!  I was thinking about that earlier today as well.  Feels like 1982-83.  Lets hope that only one of Philly / Mil turn into a true contender.

And let's hope BOS/MIL isn't a repeat of '82/83.

I can't believe Philly is entering the playoffs on a 16 game win streak. Yes If Embiid continues to stay healthy they will be a handful for years to come.

Simmons is a special talent.

As for Embiid...health is still a concern. As the games go by and the pounding continues something will give.

What ? ! ? 

we got Yabu !

In the 5 games that Yabusele has played 14 minutes or more?

The Celtics are 4-1

I rest my case.

The upcoming draft has two really skilled forwards (Doncic and Porter) that will go early, and 5 very talented big men:

Ayton
Bagley
Jackson
Bamba
Carter

A #6 or #7 pick this year will almost certainly result in a high quality big prospect.
