Celtics are a mess.

Tatum has taken a step back, Brown has taken a huge step back. Hayward still doesn't look right. They're 10-2 when Irving doesn't play.

Defense is smoking bad teams, but really struggling against Top 10 offenses. And there doesn't seem to be enough balls to go around on offense.

They've fallen behind the Oladipo-less Pacers...

33 and 15 for Jonas Valanciunas as the Grizz beat the Rockets.

He's been reborn since the trade. Even before tonight he was averaging 18 and 8 in only 25 minutes.

Also somehow is still only 26 years old...


23/24 tonight. Give that man minutes.


He destroyed Steven Adams tonight as the Grizz knock off the Thunder.

Irving will soon be gone. Ainge still has a lot of valuable picks to use to figure this mess out.

Horrible injury for Nurkic last night. That's too bad. He was having a great season.

Brown is hard to figure. He exceeded expectations last season. This season he has looked awful more times than not.

Horrific. Hope he can comeback 100% from this. Leg injuries to guys his size are always scary.

Its weird. He was almost unplayable as a rookie, looked like he was on the cusp of superstardom last year and now he's really regressed.

He's a super smart and insightful kid. I wonder if he tends to get too deep into his own head?

Since returning from the groin injury Jan 31, LeBron is averaging 27.5 points, 10.1 assists, 9.0 rebounds. The Lakers are +7 with him on the floor and -158 when he hits the bench

I'm not great with numbers ... but it appears they are slightly better WITH him, right?

I'm not very smart, but I'd have to agree with your statement!

LeBron is GREAT, but their record is terrible and he still has more help than Towns does.
Both team tanking.

They're horrible without LeBron.

27-27 with him.
6-14 without.

They're decent defensively, but they're among the worst offenses in the game - with even less outside shooting that us.

They rival us in being horrifically run. Magic is (as in all basketball related things post playing career) so far in over his head, he has no idea what way is up.

They were gifted LeBron because his wife wanted to live full-time in LA and he wanted to be close to his media empire.

He also seems to have an abiding love for iconic franchises that I hate: Yankees, Cowboys, Lakers.......

Great ceremony for Ginobili in SA last night.
One hell of a career.

He is something else
I think I saw him kick boxing the other day. That's a scary thought.

That was fantastic.

One of my favorite players ever. Also, I think a little underrated.

The Popovich/Ginobili relationship is fascinating. He certainly didn't look like a Popovich kind of player. A little reckless, did things his way, but possessed great basketball instincts. Turned out to be a perfect match.

The way Ginobili played and understood the game, reminded me of a young Maravich.

Love it or hate it, I think he was responsible for bringing the Euro-step(?) to the NBA.

Gold Medal, Multiple NBA Championships, Euro League Championship. Played his entire NBA career for one team.

Winner.

Probably the most underrated aspect of Pop has been his ability to modify what he wants to do to fit his players. How many times has the guy completely changed his offense based on his roster?

Absolutely. He's without equal when it comes to understanding, recognizing and adapting to his personnel.

Best coach of basketball ever, including Wooden.

Big game tonight boys!!!! 🙁

I saw you guys were pretty well handling the Warriors the other night till their customary late barrage?

We actually need this one pretty bad, however our ceiling has come down quite a bit losing another Blazer center... 😡

I’ll be interested watching Towns/ Kanter. I’m pretty sure Towns will have a huge game with Kanter’s defensive limitations.

Enjoy

Yeah Magic needs to go.

I was telling this guy that the GM was Kobe Bryant's agent and he/we started cracking.

The Rockets have the 2nd best defense in the NBA since the ASB.

Its absolutely amazing how Morey completely rebuilt his bench on the fly during the season.

I love how proactive Morey and D'Antoni are. If they make a mistake, they just fix it ASAP.

On the other side of the coin … WTF happened to OKC?
They've been putrid.
Shortly after everyone crowned them Kings.
