    Boston media can’t decide whether the Celtics played great and should be proud of themselves or if it’s only one game and OMIGOD LEBRON. Some are doing both, naturally.

    So Lebron will probably score 43 in Game 2, but clearly the C’s are capable of winning games against the Cavs.  I have so many offseason fake trades queued up.

    The only guy I’m up for moving at this point is Rozier I guess because he’s likely at his peak value and won’t be as good elsewhere. I could be convinced on Kyrie.

    What’s the return for Rozier?  Non-lottery first?

    If that’s the case I’d just keep him.

    I’m asking, what’s your guess?  He’s a FA next year I believe, that would mitigate it.

    He’s an RFA, but I’d expect his market to be big. I know Danny doesn’t let people walk, so maybe they hold onto him until the break depending on how Kyrie’s knee is. I’d guess a top 12ish pick potential plus a guy with a couple more years of first contract control maybe?

    That’s a good option, though not striking when the iron’s hot.  If they feel good enough about Kyrie’s knee to trade Rozier, it probably means that Rozier is only playing 15 mpg or so.

    Who wants to take the first stab at 2018-19 roster? I have a hard time seeing another major shake-up but you never know what Ainge will do.

    Under contract: Irving, Horford, Hayward, Brown, Tatum, Rozier, Morris, Theis, Ojeleye, Yabusele, Nader

    RFA: Smart, Gibson

    UFA: Morris, Baynes, Larkin, Monroe

     

    Short of a deal for Davis, I don’t want to touch the top 5. I love watching this team and part of me wants to see them keep the top 8 or 9 under contract, re-sign Smart and Baynes, add serviceable bodies at 1 and 5, and PTT. But I’m guessing Danny has different (better) ideas.

    Pete Schrager on NFLN annoys the shit out of me, based on appearance. Best way to describe it is constipated gay face.

    The biggest question for me is what Jaylen’s ceiling is. No player in his 21 year old season other than Rashard Lewis (who was in his third year) has shot with such efficiency and high a volume from 3. Is it 7ish time All Star? 2nd/3rd all league guy?

    No matter what Fenway Sports Management wins.

    Guessing everyone is out on Leonard?

    I think they could get a top 8 pick for Rozier. Rozier and the SAC pick (or Lakers pick if they strike gold tomorrow) gets you an all-star.

    I wouldn’t want to move Kyrie unless Ainge predicts that he’ll only play in roughly 50% of games going forward. He’s a top 10 player in the NBA.

    I would trade one of Brown or Tatum to get Anthony Davis, but I doubt N.O. trades him. Not sure there’s anyone else even remotely available, even Leonard, that I would trade those guys for. Nobody is trading Durant, Curry, Lebron, Harden or even Towns.  Brown for Porzingis would be an interesting swap, but with Porzingis’ injuries I’m not sure I would do it for Boston.

    And he’s arguably the 5th best player on the 2018-2019 roster.

    Stupid question that came to mind while Rozier was still out there in garbage time:

    I know they have a short bench but how many players are on their active roster? Do they not have anyone else that could’ve been out there? Bird? Allen? I know Larkin is hurt.

    Yeah, no thanks on leonard unless he can be had for Rozier/MaMo/sac pick  Brown/Tatum untouchable unless for Davis, that’s it as far as I’m concerned

    Will I be able to buy weed or bet a 10 team parlay first in Massachusetts?

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada’s monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits.

    I thought Nicky Santoro was supposed to make sure this didn’t happen.

    Interesting lottery in terms of Philly/Boston. 96% chance of Philly getting a decent (#10 or so) pick from the Lakers, 2.9% chance the Celtics get a great pick, 1.1% chance the Sixers get the #1 pick.

    Unrelated events, teams and eras have one thing in common! Oh no!

    I count at least 11 guys in the draft who are going to be really good, and its pretty flat. Other than Ayton and Bagley, I think the next 9 are pretty equal. History will almost definitely prove me wrong as it always does, but I think this is an awesome draft.
