Draft for talent, not position...unless both can be fulfilled by a draftee you are selecting...

Celts should draft Ball just to mess with Lakershow....lol!
Agreed, but if you're heavy at a position, more notably with YOUNG talent....why draft and keep at the same position? Trade the pick to address your positional needs.

I can't see Boston NOT drafting Fultz, unless they trade the pick away. I would rather the Lakers draft Jackson who might have a higher ceiling than Ball, also try to humble Papa Ball.

Damn, This CLE vs BOS game could be much worse. 61-39 Halftime but they're not shooting the 3 ball as well

Haven't been watching the game, but literally just turned it on, and boom, LeBron favouritism no call.

Clear as day backcourt violation by LBJ. So rigged.

Lebron is surgically tearing the Boston D apart. May have to wait until the finals before Cavs lose a single playoff game.

Every year the NBA playoffs get more and more boring. I don't mind having another Cavs vs GS finals, but the process of getting there is laughable when those two teams are so far ahead of almost every other team in the NBA. Why even bother having 3 extra rounds of games when the Cavs and GS will lose only a couple of games at most over 3 series?? Just fast forward to the finals and save everyone the trouble.

This is why the NHL playoffs is 1000x more superior than the NBA playoffs and it always will be thanks to more parity and competition. The NBA really needs to start looking at a hard cap or some other way to prevent one team from having too many stars on it because the league is a joke these days when only a couple of teams can dominate so much for so long.
Toronto sports teams..............forever cursed. Profound sadness. :(

Yes. To many top loaded teams. Have a hard cap and max of two players that are paid 25% or more of cap per season. So if more star players want to jin, they will take a huge pay cut.

Max salaries per year is getting really crazy.

Lets hope brad steven has a good counter for Lebron next game.

Well to be fair, the NBA is a star's league where a couple of superstars on a team can carry them all the way. NHL has 4 lines and the stars play less than half the game. Hockey is a much team oriented game. I do have to admit that the first few rounds have been very boring as there's no competition good enough to go against the Cavs or GS.
TEAM CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!

The GS/SA series was looking like it was going to be a good one for roughly half of the 1st game. Since Kawhi got injured, can we just fast forward to the Cavs vs Warriors series now? What a terrible NBA playoffs this year as been.

BOS/WAS and LAC/UTA were both great first round series. The domination of GSW and CLE have been enjoyable to watch too lol

Mann, in the old days, a team gets too dominant, you start playing more physical. All you see nowadays is the defense running out of he way and avoiding contact at all costs so they don't get fouled, thrown out, etc..

What a bloodbath. The Celtics should just concede the game and not even come out to play the 2nd half.

I know the Raps got rocked too, but damn, it feels good to see the Celts and shit talking Thomas get absolutely destroyed.
