What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

I’m still pretty steamed with the Celtics inability to move up in the draft. What’s the point of having all these assets if you aren’t going to use them? It appears Danny Ainge tried to use the assets but Michael Jordan and the Hornets simply wouldn’t bite: “They [the future picks] are worth a lot, [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Ainge says we fell for the draft hype

Your Morning Dump… Where Ainge says we fell for the draft hype

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Did the Celtics just steal a rim protector in the second round?

Did the Celtics just steal a rim protector in the second round?

Chad Ford seems to think so Mickey is a great shot blocker. Just undersized. Never quite understood why NBA teams didn’t rank him higher. Celtics get rim protector. — Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 26, 2015 Jordan Mickey is another 6’8″ power forward, but he’s not nailed to the ground. The kid can block shots and [...]

And with the 28th pick… the Celtics select RJ Hunter

Now that we’ve had enough drinks to get us past the confusion of the 16th pick, let’s tell you a little bit about RJ Hunter… another guard. Actually, before we go too crazy and make Khan/Timberwolves/guards jokes, Hunter (a) isn’t undersized and (b) can shoot, so he breaks the pattern. As you can see from [...]

Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

I couldn’t be more disappointed. Not only were the Celtics unable to move up in the draft (Jahlil Okafor went 3rd to Philly, Justise Winslow went 10th to Miami), but they drafted a defensive point guard. Terry Rozier is 6-2, 190 sophmore out of Louisville. He can defend like hell, rebounds well, but struggles with [...]

Rumor: Celtics to prepare monster package for 3rd pick?

Wow … @WindhorstESPN just said that if Okafor slips to 3, the Celtics are ready to send a monster package to Philly to get him. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) June 25, 2015 Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report says there’s growing momentum the Lakers are going to select D’Angelo Russell with the 2nd pick. It’s highly [...]

2015 NBA Draft Combine notes

2015 NBA Draft Combine notes

With the NBA draft 6 weeks away the Celtics will look to make a splash with a couple of first and second picks. This draft has been labeled a top heavy draft, but it’s filled with players who have skills that match the Celtics needs. When describing the combine last year Brad Stevens said, “The best [...]
