Trollin’ Volin with a huge HC/GM article in Globe this morning. While Caserio & McD are considered a potential “package deal” across the league, Volin suggested that Nick could also team up with Dabol who is high on a lot of team’s lists. One thing that worried me was his mention that the Giants are 100% going to overhaul their entire operations – both GM & HC. When the mass exodus of coaches started last year, we assumed it was because BB told everyone (or they figured out) he was staying. What if it’s the opposite? What if they all… Read more »

Memphis has set multiple school records on offense and scored 30 or more points in 43 of the 53 games of his tenure. The Tigers have won eight or more games for six straight seasons, and Norvell has been at the helm for the past four. From 1974 to 2013, the Tigers had just two seasons of eight or more wins.

Poor N’keal. The black hole of talented Patriot WR’s is closing in around him. Go ahead and include Meyers and Dorsett. The Pats have never been able to nurture young talents toward success. They just drown them in unrealistic expectation with an impossible burden of appeasing an old Goat – where perfection is the enemy of good. And the young bucks are so terrified of reading his mind wrong, they can’t even remember the routes, let alone use the natural talent they have. Gillette is a literal cemetery of would be starting WR’s that never get a chance once all… Read more »

“Of course, any deal between the two Eastern Conference rivals would have to include Gordon Hayward, who actually earns more than the player Boston would theoretically be trading for in Love (the swingman is making $32.7 million this season to Love’s $28.9 million).”

For me, Houston is the clear destination. Love and a future 1st for Gordon and Capela. The money is pretty much spot on. The Cabs get a young middle man to pair with Garland/ Sexton and the Rockets get a veteran front line scorer/ rebounder. Cavs clear cap next year, Houston recovers a first.

i wouldn’t mind Love on the Lakers, but the Lakers have no draft picks and cap space. The only real asset is just Kuzma, but wouldn’t make any sense to trade him for Love. And Lakers are just loaded in the front court

Kevin Love this season:

17 games, 31.0 minutes, 44.6 FG%, 37.6 3P%, 88.1 FT%, 10.7 REB, 2.8 AST, 0.4 BLK, 0.7 STL, 16.7 PTS

Here’s an updated look at the Celtics’ first-round draft picks over the next two years.

2020 NBA Draft
–Memphis Grizzlies (top-6 protected)
–Milwaukee Bucks (top-7 protected)
–Boston’s own pick

2021 NBA Draft
–Memphis Grizzlies (unprotected if it doesn’t convey in 2020)
–Milwaukee Bucks (unprotected if it doesn’t convey in 2020)
–Boston’s own pick

I think Celtics would be a better team with Love and moving Theis for the 2nd unit.

Kemba- Smart – Tatum – Brown – Love seems a very good starting line-up

Hayward – Theis – Kanter on the 2nd unit would help to upgrade the biggest weakness of this Celtics team: the bench

If I were Cleveland I would want young players I could build around. I don’t think the Celtics could afford to give up their good young players like Smart , Brown or Tatum.

Deadsmack #GreenShirtGuy

I think they would prefer draft picks and expiring deals. They want to get rid of Love because he still has 3 years remaining on his deal

dp73

I don’t see that the Celtics have the value to get Love.

Sure, it is in part about money but Cleveland should get a young good player and a high pick. They have a lot of rebuilding to do and Love is the biggest piece that they have to rebuild with. They can’t waste it.

Draft picks

IMO, that is not going to to be enough. So if the the Cav’s don’t get any young players from the Celtics who are they going to trade to other teams to get the young players they need?

Love has 3 years remaining and 60 millions of salaries, not many contending teams have the cap space to get him

No.

I think the Celtics need a Center that can rebound and make then a better defensive team. I think R.Williams could be that guy in the future but maybe not this year.

What would you think Cleveland would want?

Deadsmack #GreenShirtGuy

maybe some draft picks.
Love would be perfect for the Celtcs to close the games, he is a great rebounder and one of the best long range shooters at PF

What high picks do the Celtics have?

I think they would want a player as well. I don’t think the Cav’s are going to give him away. I think they would want a young player that could help build their team.

20-3 record, the best defense in the NBA, 2 MVP contenders (Davis and Lebron). 11 consecutive wins on away games, won 14 games in the last 13.

you were thanking the Lakers for not picking Brown and Tatum in the draft, but guys like Ingram, Ball and Hart also helped the Lakers to get AD.
AD and Lebron presence helped the Lakers to get guys like Rondo and Bradley for much less money too.

Belichick raised a good point about RPO and refereeing. I noticed 3 plays in the Texans game when OPI should’ve been called. Travis Kelce is notorious for OPI so hopefully the refs pay attention in the KC game.

I think there are supposed to be 10 coaches overall. They are at 6 now I think. Lombardi will be the last coach revealed since Belichick refused to rank the players and coaches. The show would conclude paying homage to Lombardi for the evolution of the game, if I have to guess.
