Offcourse, we would have taken it this year if it weren't for this:

Nope, zero chance.

We're probably the 6th or 7th best team in the league when healthy. Most teams out west would mop the floor with us.
In the 2017 off-season, I predicted the Celtics will not win the title for the next 10 years.

1 down, 9 to go.

I don't understand.

Tatum fan since he shot his first jumper.

I don't understand.
I think it is because he is afraid to be let down. Hence the rationalization, by the proclaimed lowered expectations. I just straight up believe we will win, and if we don't then we will certainly do it the year after.

It might be one of those years where the defending champs might or a Lebron team isn't the favorite, how's that for saying something while dodging the jinx?

But holy cow. If we can keep Monroe especially, and Irving and Gordy come back 100%, at least by Christmas... all 5 starters and at least 3 bench players could legit average 20 on most teams. That's the top 8, possibly a playoff rotation by itself. I mean, if we really did roll with those 8, we're going to see some 140, 145 point games pretty often.
Don't know if it could happen, but I'd love to "keep the band together".  10-man rotation:
Horford
Irving
Hayward
Brown
Tatum
Rozier
Morris
Smart
Monroe
Theis

We don't have much leverage with Monroe. From what I understand, we can only offer him $5 mil? due to the way that we signed him. I doubt that will be the highest offer.

Resigning Smart will likely put us into luxury tax depending on how much he wants and what the luxury tax is for 2019. If we use the projected numbers, it turns out to leave bout 15.5 mil worth of space for him. Anything more than that and I think that if Danny is smart, he will let Smart walk for free to avoid luxury tax for 1 more year because after 2019-2020, we're going to be in luxury for a long time. I don't see it happening because I think Smart is going to ask for and get closer to 20 mil and Danny will let him walk, otherwise the extension could have been done this season.

Rest are already under contract through 2018-2019.

So, you're telling me, there's a chance? (insert Jim Carrey dork character asking pretty girl for a date)

Yeah there's a chance that we keep 1 of the 2 (Smart being more likely), extremely unlikely both. Does Smart value $5 mil more a season and more playing time, having the keys to the team (the team that gives  him $20 mil won't be a playoff contender) more than being in Boston among a superteam? If you asked me, I would stay in Boston for less money and build a dynasty, but not everyone understands that $15 mil a year is more than enough and not everyone is capable of being the #2 guy.  I'd say if you get to the level of competition of an NBA player, only a small % don't mind being someone's backup.

I don't even want to keep Monroe over Baynes. I'd much rather have a limited offense solid defense center than the other way around.
