Durant learning there’s a double standard for LeBron

Celtics use the draft to plant seeds in future free agents’ heads

This is why the people who run basketball teams are infinitely smarter than idiot bloggers like me.  Because I would be going to to things like the NBA draft combine and focusing primarily on figuring out who the Celtics could draft at picks 21 and 22.  But the Celtics and the Spurs, two of the most [...]
