philly is doing the smart thing with him like the knicks are with frank. let the 19 year old remain healthy and develop strength. no need to rush them back.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Frank should start. He was better than Sessions when he was a baby.

Sixers have a history of being injury-burned with their high #1s... Will be interesting to see if it isn't a season long issue with Fultz.

EnySpree: Can we agree to agree not to mention Phil Jackson and triangle for the rest of our lives?

Isiah thomas all mad at Ainge, blah blah......
"Should have sat out and not played with the bad hip in the playoffs">.....

Isn't this the guy that said "better back the truck up" regarding his free agency?
Sure, ainge did well getting him and his play at 6mm per year was a bargain, but isn't ainge first responsible to the Celtics than Thomas?
Thomas worked his arse off and the luck of his injury is not good, but he was still tradable (No doubt cleveland was squeezing celts for more after.....)and it was a discount becuase he was injured!!!

Is Thomas a "Victim" or should he zip it???

Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Athletes always look for an edge. Players are all geared differently. Given Thomas size and the criticism that he has probably heard his whole career. He probably is geared this way which helps him be good at what he does.

The San Antonio Spurs and LaMarcus Aldridge have agreed upon a three-year, $72.3 million contract extension.

Aldridge's deal contains a partial guarantee in the final year of the deal.

Aldridge could have become a free agent in 2018.

Gregg Popovich and Aldridge cleared the air during camp after he was involved in trade rumors in the offseason.

Why are they giving him $25mil a year? he looked bad and overweight most of last season and sulked and wanted trading.

Wow. I admire SA organization but this seems like a big mistake

Fortunately for them not too long

From what I read him and pop worked out a lot of things and the fact is he came to camp in good shape, healthy and lost weight.
He has a professional history. Good teams and pro's work things out. They did pretty good last year but Leonard got hurt.
They are still top 4-5 in the west and sneaky always.
If not a NTC in his contract he is tradable.

Experience tells me to not question the Spurs. Not that everything they do turns to gold, but they have a solid history.

Wow...one of the few teams with a worse PG rotation. Worse is an understatement. There are NCAA teams with better PG rotations than the Bulls.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

Every once in awhile horrible things like this happen. Compound fracture of the leg I believe--he'll be ok but it will take time. In theory you can move Tatum or Brown to 4 man and they swapped up for Marcus Morris. JUst stinks for the Cs their fans and especially Hayward on night 1

Celts playing Woodson style defense; switching on every pick...Cavs killing them on mismatches...Celts improved offensively but lost alot of grittiness and defensive toughness...

We missed you Briggs.

I feel terrible for Hayward but not for the Celts.
They're not that good anymore.

Think about the fire power the Cavs have-- they will take GS this year and it will be something like 4-1. They have their own dream team and its balanced offense and defense.

Good to have you back man. It’s a long season and shyt happens. Gotta play it out honestly I think some of the players break down happen. Including LeBron he has a lot of mileage. I don’t expect Wade to make it to the finals.
