For me this teams success will depend a lot on how good NAW is, the Front Office basically made the Zo decision a year ago because they believe in him.

If you're gonna talk about the Pelicans and not include him as a major part of the discussion then it proves to me you (as in Lowe) haven't been paying attention.

If he sucks we probably will, but the team has made that bet quite obviously and we'll see what will happen.

dude why are you always trying to be confrontational Laughing
NAW is a nice shooter, a good young potential role player so far that i agree could end up averaging a decent amount of points if he stays fit and continues to develop.. but somehow you are mad that i somehow didn't bring him up in a discussion which revolved around Bledsoe/Adams and Graham/Jonas.

scapegoating Bledsoe for your team's badly coached and lack of clear identity on both sides of the court is poor overall analysis. You need to hold your coaching staff and other players more accountable. Graham and Jonas are useful players, but yea you are overstating it if you think the improvement will be "drastic".

Of course you are allowed to be optomistic about your team heading into the new season like we all are with our own teams, but i will be here to tell you i told you so if the team ends up being dysfunctional again and has another poor or below-par season.


First of all i wasn't being confrontational, i was just offering a viewpoint lol.

Secondly NAWs shooting is arguably the worst aspect of his overall game lol, Lonzo is a better shooter than he is.

I'm not scapegoating at all, he was that bad and the fact you think I'm scapegoating leads me to believe you really weren't paying attention.

Dunno why the feel you the need to tell me the potential of another disappointing season either. I'm very much aware of it lol, me believing that Graham and Valenciunas are upgrades over Bledsoe/Adams corpses shouldn't really be met with such resistance lol.

The Drastic part says more about how bad they were, then how good the incoming players are.

The fact it is tells me as much as you appreciate Lowe's takes being very ignorant you still don't really fully understand how bad Bledsoe especially was.

Also i said in my post the NAW part was aimed at Lowe (i was quite clear about that)

It's fine for random fans to not know our success is defined by him taking the leap the team expects from him.

I was criticising Lowe because it's literally his job to know these things. You not knowing it is fine.

Hearing the Lakers, which is just not a good fit.

He needs the ball in his hands. Of course, that wont be a good team even if he is leading the bench unit but his only hope of making it back is still going to be about fit.

Dont ring chase just yet, get a year under your belt in the league so people know you still can play.

He looked okay during his 10 day for us but the standards were quite low as Lonzo, BI and Zion were all out at the time lol.

So we were basically playing kids, guys on minimums and 10 days.

Looking forward to our game against Golden State.

One of the few teams other than ourselves in Summer League that actually have people who will likely be rotation pieces next year outside of probably Detroit and Houston.

Firstly not really, you had a 3 that shouldn't have stood lol. Besides by the letter of the law it was the correct call as weird as the explanation was.

But anyway the reason we didn't make it is because the tournament had some weird point differential ruling and the Kings had a slightly better point differential.

Although i personally think both us and the Kings were better than the Celtics tbh.

Draymond out here talking shit with KD about Steve Kerr and Bob Myers in an interview. Woj RTing an old interview from 2019 in which Draymond said the complete opposite from what he is saying now lol.

Draymond for Ben trade might start to gather steam now.

Dray and KD to some extent, came off as immature to me. Or at least they were not keeping it real to each other.

They are painting it as something that needed to happen and if left alone, it would have all turned out fine.

Utter nonsense, KD still would have left and it would have went down the exact same way.

Not to say Kerr and Bob couldnt have done things differently, but KD and Dray especially are painting the picture that how they handled it was the cause of KD not staying.

I really dont like the direction the NBA is heading tbh, the players seem totally unrestricted and basically run the show. Its too much. At some point KD said "we dont give a s--t if Klay missed a practice". There is just something not right about that statement to me.

yea agree with you, very immature, took the accountability and blame of their own issue and placed it onto the management.

At some point KD said "we dont give a s--t if Klay missed a practice". There is just something not right about that statement to me.
i don't recall this part... what was he referring to here in a larger context?

I think Dray was asking about the difficult players KD has played with (himself, Harden, Kyrie, Westbrook) and how people (fans, media) now say Kyrie's behavior (missing games, etc) is the main reason they might not win with the Nets.

KD basically dismissed it, said everyone has issues and Kyrie isnt a problem. Led to him saying when Klay missed a practice, nobody cared. But I have the impression he just used Klay as an example and it could have been anyone.

My problem really is the flippant way he said it and how Dray received it. Basically, as I already suspected, practice is totally unimportant and these players do pretty much whatever they like.

This contract seems super Team friendly, no idea why Josh agreed to it.

Further more and the reason I'm posting it, it's like nothing I've ever seen before.

The language in the contract is basically saying both team option and player option in the same year which you aren't allowed to do but because of how it's written they can.

Whoever the agents are seem to have done a terrible job.

The money isn't the point of the contract or the point of the post.

More so the fact only one year is guaranteed and is basically operating like 3 seperate 1 year contracts.

It's super unique and not normal at all. He must have been getting absolutely no offers.

Why Celtics are retiring Kevin Garnett's jersey ? I never saw him play yet i know he was a tremendous player

But he spent just 6 years there, 1 championship with a super team. It's not like it's the only chip they ever won although it's been a long time before and since then. Statistically his prime years are with another franchise (Timberwolves)

Seems odd to me, is he that much of a Celtics legend ?

As well as Michael Jordan's number retired by the Heat. And Kobe retired by Mavericks but they never played there.

Good intentions but imo a bit wack. As a contest of who pays the most respect.

Because he was a great player for them, don't overthink it.

Also the only reason the Timberwolves haven't retired his Jersey is because they're a shitshow of a franchise.

What's going on with Zion

I know Pels aren't really the best run franchise in the league, no offense Mole altho you know it more than anyone, but it feels way too early to have some of this noise. Zion's hardly done anything in the league yet.
