I'm glad there are people like you who enjoy these.

You hit the nail on the head on all of these.

Not making any predictions yet, but I'd put them in that range, yeah. I think they'll be better than last season, and the win total may not show that. I mean, the entire Eastern Conference is much better this season. Development is what matters most, IMO.

It's only Q3, so I'm not ready for any definite predictions (talk to me in late September), but right now I'd put their ceiling at 35 wins and their floor at 20. That's a wide range, but some of those stretches are just brutal.

This is one area I didn't even touch on entirely. I didn't want the post to run too long...but you're right. Bass will take up 10.9% of the cap this season. That's a big chunk.

The trades aren't perfect comparisons, obviously. The point is to show that no similar player has received anything of significant value.

for Trade him before the season, even if the return is nothing special. The young kids need to play.

Voted on Aug 10 2014, 9:34p
My 27-win prediction isn't final at all...but I doubt it'll change that much. I just don't think Boston's off-season is necessarily over just year, nor are the offseasons for some of the other Eastern Conference teams in the ballpark, so we'll see.

Bradley because of the experience. Probably Smart in the long-run because of the versatility, but it's close.

I think point guard defense is overrated by virtue that the NBA is so loaded with great scoring point guards that the average defensive guard is going to get killed on a nightly basis. Unless you're an great/elite defender, you're getting beat one on one.

How do you react to Lowe's former report that Boston was looking to trade GSW? They would've used their trade exception.

Women or men, it really doesn't matter to me, because domestic violence is an awful thing either way. It goes both ways, we just never hear about violence towards men. But obviously you're right.

I agree. I'm just speaking on my own personal views. Not what a team should do.

Not a rumor. That's just speculation, like this article is...except one is semi-realistic (mine), one is totally unrealistic (his). No way the Celtics take on Amare. None.
