So Ainge drafts Tatum instead of getting Tatum plus?

Yeah, right - got it.

I don't know if the Celts and Lakers could have made a 1, 2 swap, and neither do you.

its possible if Ainge took Ball, LA would have gone for Fultz, got their PG, and the consensus #1 player in the draft, and avoided the headcase father.

Ainge's guy was Tatum and he engineered a trade to get him plus get paid for it.

Philly had the assets to do the deal, the Lakers pick, that the Lakers no longer owned, so he made the deal with Philly.

i suspect if no deal was to be had, he would have taken Tatum, the guy he wanted at #1.

Now you are just uninformed.

Ball was going to Lakers, one way or another - and only Celts (or Philly after the swap) was stopping it.

heh

and you're speculating out of your ass becasue you got nothing to rebutt the facts so you're just double dribbling spittle off your chin.

LA might have happpily taken Fultz, the consensus #1, if the Celts had taken Ball.

LA didn't have the pick to trade, so taking a player as comp in a trade made no sense as the Celts had to shed bodies (they traded Avery Bradley) to get under the cap to sign Hayward.

You are clueless.

Trey Burke got married 3 months ago, and has a 3 year old (that's new math, folks), and says the family routine has settled him down and allowed him to refocus on hoops.  Intimates that he liked to party/run around in the past.
https://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/on-verge-of-comeback-with-knicks-trey-burke-opens-up-on-renewed-mission-to-resurrect-nba-career/

Quote
"I am a playmaker naturally," Burke said. "Guys ask, 'Are you a point guard? Are you a shooting guard?' I believe I am a point guard and a shooting guard. I believe I'm both: a combo guard, you might say. I believe I can run a team as a point guard, though
&
Quote
"I'm at that point. I'm not a role player. I believe I still have a ways to go, but I do believe that I'm a starting guard in [the NBA]. I do believe that I'ma be an All-Star. I do believe these things in my heart."

It's good to have confidence, but I'ma be a naysayer.  Lack of size, defense,a nd mostly being a scorer put a limit on him and washed him out of the NBA once.  Good if he's hungry and in shape.  Hopefully he can be a competent bench scorer.  Craw made a 2nd career at that (after refusing/sulking when asked to come off the bench in NY); LouW has been putting up huge numbers off the bench.

Reportedlu Knix looking for a deal for Sessions (try to pick up a 2nd rounder) or will waive Ramon.  Sorry Sesh, Jack owes you a lunch . . .

My latest deal works with getting Burke on the roster.

We would just waive Hammons.

Just finished watching The Lake Show.  Obviously we have to see if this holds up vs healthier teams, but Lakers not looking like a team that will get a 2-5 pick.

Raps rapped Cavs.
Best I've ever seen VanVleet.
I've mostly seen him run around for no advantage.
He was bombing 3's, moving the ball, even involved in a number of odd plays, like falling down and catching a pass while on his back.

TOR was much more active the CLE.
Lots of deflections.  7 blocks.

Also best game I've seen from Poeltl.
Real active on both ends.
I've seen him look good in 2 or 3 min spurts, but this was half a game and a few tours of strong play.

Credit to OG for defending LeBJ well.  hey rook, you're checking LeBron tonight ... gulp.
Did a real nice job, including once contesting LBJ's favorite step-back 3 very well <clank>

Well, in a blowout win, everybody looks good.
Even deep bench guy Lorenzo Brown came in and whipped the ball around and had 5 assists in 16 mins.
You rarely see a team's bench play that well.

I think Lue's job might be jeopardy.

Coach Killer Lebron.

But I think Brown goes first.

Frank Vogel may join him.

And I am unsure on Billy Donovan right now.

Marc Berman: Kind words on Knicks from defensive guru Tom Thibodeau, who never got a Phil dinner “Their defense is vastly improved, great length. Their rebounding is terrific. In my eyes, they have a very dangerous team.’’

I think James is the same age Bill Russell was (and a lot older than was Dave DeBusschere) when he was made player-coach.
