    Celtics, 76ers agree to swap top picks; Philly expected to take Fultz 

    CAMDEN, N.J. — The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers have agreed in principle to swap the Nos. 1 and 3 picks in Thursday’s NBA draft, and Philadelphia will use the top pick to take Washington guard Markelle Fultz, sources told ESPN’s Marc Spears, confirming news that was first reported by TNT’s David Aldridge.

    The trade will be finalized on Monday. The Celtics will receive a package of picks that includes the Sixers’ No. 3 overall pick this year, sources said.

    I remember being bummed that we missed out on Marcus Smart in the 2014 draft….

    I’m sure there are some that thought he was a bust up until now….

    I feel the same way about DAR now and think the critisism of him up to this point is ridiculous….

    The gaurd position takes the longest to develop…

      I think bigs take longer to develop, but they ALL do unless you’re a special, elite player.

      Well, it’s Smart’s third full season in the Association, Russell is only a year behind. While I would argue a bit more has been asked of D’Angelo, up to this point, Smart has never been anything but the consummate teammate. If Russell could have as much of an impact on the game, in any fashion, as Smart does consistently with his defense and hustle that would be a welcome addition.

      Criticism from fans is simply observation of the final product. Criticisms from the media are not much better, though I do put stock into older players who displayed above average Hoops IQ. Criticism from the coaching staff is not ridiculous in any fashion, take the note, as they say in the theatre. There has been a fair amount in regards to the young man from all three fronts. But he’s a Laker and, as I’ve said, he did show more than little improvement (most of all and most importantly I think, in maturity). Here’s hoping he takes another step forward.

        Had the advertising/hype been less flamboyant, status quo might be palatable. But all the Magic Johnson comparrisons, the apparent “wowing” of the brass, all failed to materialize. Luke Walton has literally parroted Byron Scott in his assessment of Russell, and, again, if he were all “that”, we wouldn’t be looking to draft a PG.

          It’s one reason I try not to tune into too much of that. the videos, the footage, all of it is versus amateurs either going one-and -done like you or aren’t good enough to and need more years of NCAA to see if they can supplant raw latent with better fundamentals.

          You get to the NBA and it starts to feel like going from single A ball to the Show, lots of these guys could come out of college so much stronger if they went just 3 years a la Magic. Let that body better fully develop, hone that craft. But money is money… NCAA isn’t worth the wait for anyone with enough hype.

          Anyhow, I hope a little continuity in a system he likes along with a summer of work will see him on the right path to taking another decent, to big, step forward. Barring a stellar trade I’d just as soon roll the dice one more year and just try and shed salary. I’m certain if a ‘can’t say no’ deal crosses the desk that trigger will be pulled. Trading to trade….naw, I’ve had enough of that. He’s cheap for another year.

          The Celtics are much further along in their rebuilding process, thereby making it easier for a young player like Smart to develop, not that D’Angelo Russell isn’t an overall better player than him anyway. Mr. Tate needs to quit with this point guard bullsh!t because if he knew anything about Russell, he would know that he’s a combo guard and that a player like Ball will allow him to play off the ball more, where he’s more comfortable shooting and passing. Also, whether it’s Ball, Fox or whomever, this player will be a ROOKIE, so those shortsighted folks who want to pawn Russell off on anther team might think twice about that. Mr. Tate’s suggestion that we swap WCS and Zubac and swap Russell for the #5 crapshoot is laughable.

          that’s what you get for believing “news” to be actual solid information.

          it’s television. the internet is television. by definition, it’s full; of actors and writers, it’s entertainment. it doesn’t have to be facts. it just needs a few facts to keep the stink of reality in it, then everyone makes up their own stories and sells them to viewers.

      DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS

      Russell doesn’t play defense. Nwaba will unseat him -- if he’s not traded. There’s even talk about playing Ingram at the 2. He’s not cheap. He’s costly -- turnovets, boneheaded drives into traffic, trying impossible passes when a simple one would have been more effective. If he’s traddd, it won’t be “trading to trade” it will be to improve the team.

      The “hype” for DAR was brought on by the previous regime. They’ve been shown the door now so I won’t dwell on it too much any more. The new regime seems to have the proper perspective on him at this point. You don’t hear all that face of the franchise stuff outta this new group…

      Benjamin -- if you read my post you will notice the hyphen segue into what I mean by “costly”.

      Keen -- Russell, hype notwithstanding, was advertised as, drafted as, and is still listed as a point guard.
      http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/r/russeda01.html

      HE DOES NOT PLAY DEFENSE. what part of that can’t you get you malformed brain around? Were you dropped on your head as a child? If he were expected to blossom in the near future, there wouldn’t be a mad rush for Ball, Fultz or Fox. The focus would be on Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum or Malik Monk.

      Patience? Screw you and your c**k and bull story about how it was “time” for the Lakers to suck, anc your blithering idiocy about the 2011 CBA and the CP3 trade. All the praise you heaped on the Buss Boy and his plan B.

      Put your big boy pants on over your pull ups and worry about Oscar and not Tate.

              Kawhi’s my favorite NBA player right now. Do the Spurs really have much more than him? During the regular season they seemed deep, but Pau’s old, Lamarcus is limited IMO (glad he snubbed his nose at us in hindsight), Tony Parker and Manu are old, and the rest are just role players. What am I missing here?

              Yeah, he’s become one of my favorites, too. Not sure what’s happened to LA’s game, but it sure seems to have dropped off considerably this season for some reason. And u’re right, as it stands now, Kawhi is the ONLY star player on that Spurs roster.

      Joined some elite company tonight. Dude can really ball and the Suns need to find a dominant low post threat to pair with him. Needs to figure out how to do these kiinds of things in wins before he’ll be taken truly seriously. Same thing with all the greats. Make the playoffs and win a few rounds.

    Almost 100, ‘Forgotten Legend of Basketball’ Still Marvels at the Game 

    Great NY Times article on the original Lakers coach!

    MINNEAPOLIS — John Kundla sat in a wheelchair playing cribbage opposite his 68-year-old son, calling out numbers in a quiet, deep voice. The efficiency apartment here had a twin bed under a painting of Jesus tending sheep; a desk topped with a large magnifying glass and a Bible; and, resting on a shelf, a photograph taken on a basketball court in 1952 showing Kundla atop the shoulders of a jubilant George Mikan, the sport’s most dominant big man in the first half of the 20th century……..

    How Thunder experimented all season to find winning formula 

    “As one team executive said, if you identify the trend and try to copy it, you’re already too late. It’s about defining your own trend. The Thunder were rigid in their roster building. Presti has always put a priority on size at each position, athleticism and positional versatility. The “trend” the Thunder are creating is having an elastic roster that can bend in whatever way is required. But what that takes is a high-minded coach, one who can identify adjustments and enact them on the fly.”

      Lotta folks aren’t giving the Thunder the proper credit for what they’ve done to the Warriors’ offense. Too much talk about Steph n Draymond “not being themselves” while failing to acknowledge that OKC has ALOT to do with that. That length all over the court has disrupted their normal ball movement and has messed with their usual usual shooting rhythm . The issues GSW are having ain’t just a coincidence or accident….

        No doubt length and athleticism are keys to defense today. The other major factor has been the elevation of games by Adams, Ubaka, Roberson, and Waiters that has given the Thunder the championship level role players they needed to match up with the Spurs and Warriors. If they beat the Warriors, I think they could go on to win the title.

        This series can be about History, about Hubris, about execution…It can be about length and athleticism, etc…

        Sometimes, believe it or not, things need not be over analyzed, like this series.

        OKC have just been more intense for the last 8 Quarters. more focused, more aware, more relaxed.

        Very simple explanation.

          I think you have to give the coach credit for getting the team to play up to its potential. It took them the entire season to figure it out but it looks as if they really have. Says something about Donovan and Brooks as head coaches.

    Everything you always wanted to know about Russell Westbrook but were afraid to ask 

    This guy is the closest thing to Kobe….

          What, in the article, makes him a “much better human being than Kobe”?

              Well, there’s no real figuring to do. Blowing out the other fellas candle doesn’t make your light shine any brighter. I guess one would have to actually know the person, and not go by something that he read.

              Not crying. Just asking a question. Shoulda known that you’d be misguided enough to think I was a trump supporter. Takes a special kind of gormless to spout that kind of absurdity.

              I know what NBA is trying to say, too. And he did a fine job of saying it. And there’s nothing in that “article” that suggests that Russell is “a better human being than Kobe”. What a Shecky.

      No other player in the league (maybe in all of sports) that I’d rather watch.

        As of right now, he’s definitely the most competitive athlete. Can you imagine him in Shaq’s body?

      Never really wanted to ‘know’ anything in particular abt Russ … but one thing I do know, is that I’ve been impressed that he finally seems willing to trust his teammates in key situations now.
