This is not an appropriate topic for right now.

We need to be thinking about how we can match up against the Raptors.

Why stop there? Let's talk about how we can beat the Rockets or the Warriors in the finals.

Or how we are gonna restructure our title defense team after Hayward comes back.

Way head of you guys. Should we retire Brown's numbers in the rafters after multiple championships?

That's pretty much a given. Question is should we draft Tatum or Al Horford's son.

It's not gonna matter if the league doesn't get off their ass and ban genetically modified player clones. That new four-legged LeBronicus travels CONSTANTLY.

Does the four-legged LeBronicus even make the New Hall of Fame? Afterall, his career lasted only 4 seasons before the NBA moved entirely to a multi-simulation league, where fantasy-boosted Daryl Moreycus dominated for centuries as player/GM.

Why wait? We know where his career is going. Let's do it on Saturday.

Calm down people. Jinxing in this sense is about as real as ghosts. Unless the Celtics players read this forum and somehow this post affects their performance (as if there aren’t 100 other similar things that they could read instead), it has 0 impact. So, the next time your team is winning and you say to your friends “this is over,” and they happen to lose, know that you have just witnessed a coincidence, not a jinx. I know that your parents told you that you can do anything... perhaps, just not that. The way to jinx someone is to do it in person, also known as getting in their head. I suspect that professional athletes are, however, difficult to jinx.

In terms of the Celtics beating the Sixers, we’re going to need to stop dribble penetration and rotate to shooters. Horford on Simmons, Baynes on Embiid, rest will contain penetration and rotate to shooters. I think we played them very well in the regular season. We’re missing Kyrie, but I don’t think we need him for this matchup. We can just abuse Redick.

well spiritual paranormal activity has been proven. i have experienced it.  We may not be jinxed by this OP but it was silly nonetheless.

You what? Just because you had a bad LSD trip doesn't exactly make their existence a fact.

1) Get to the 2nd round
2) If step 1 is not complete, complete step 1

I think the Sixers are like the Bucks (star player is impossible to contain on drives, but can't shoot outside) with a few differences:

1) Sixers have some shooters, Bucks only have Middleton
2) Simmons is a better distributor than Giannis, combine that with the shooters and they are more trouble on offense
3) They have a fantastic Center
4) But, they don't have the defensive length that the Bucks have, so probably won't force as many fast breaks as the Bucks.

So, yes, I think (<nojinx>in the unlikely event we get there  ;) </nojinx>) we'd see Horford on Simmons and Baynes on Embiid.  The rest will have to stay home and smother Redick, Covington and Saric. 

C's should probably have more offensive cohesion, better ball movement vs. the Sixers due to less length.

It doesn't matter if the Bucks don't have shooters. They are making their shots. They're ranked 5th in 3pt shooting in the playoffs so far. They were 7th WORST in the regular season. And it's not like they're getting a ton of wide open shots... they're just making them.

I think that overall you're right that the Bucks and Sixers are similar, the part I will disagree with you is that the Bucks that we are playing are better than the Sixers.

The Sixers are a much better team than the Bucks even if the Bucks do have the best player among those teams.  Frankly, the Sixers probably have 2 of the 5 best players in the Eastern playoffs this year (along with James, Giannis, and DeRozan - yes I'd take them both over Wall, Oladipo, and anyone else in the Eastern playoffs).  Saric, Redick, and Covington give them a very strong starting 5 and Ilyasova, Belinelli, Johnson, McConnell, and Fultz/Anderson are a very strong bench.  The Sixers are just a darn good team.

Since Adam Silver says he wants to clear up the "PROCESS" of tanking. One of the things the League should have done was prevent the 76ers from signing players in mid-season in order to improve for their chances for making a long playoff run. Perhaps, allow them to sign with the team, but make them ineligible for the playoffs.

Sure, they did things by the book. But clearly they deserve some form of punishment for making a mockery of the League. Maybe they can make it retroactive to upcoming seasons.

Good grief.

Win games 1-2, someone posts a poll asking about our chances vs. PHI, then we proceed to lose two straight @MIL.

Then we win Game 5, and this gets posted right before Game 6 @MIL...  >:(
