    The Celtics fucking suck, and thanks to faggots like Bill Simmons, I'm happy when they fail, instead of indifferent.

    Not saying those were good picks but what were they supposed to do? It's a weak draft

    I was hoping for some type of trade for a proven NBA player.... You're right though the draft was weak

    I think the Celtics' offseason will be judged on whether they can land Kevin Durant.

    It seems most of the people who follow NBA basketball believe the Celtics will be the second best team in the Eastern Conference next season. Signing Durant would put them toe to toe with Cleveland. There are also some good complimentary players the Celtics already have that can be traded; just because no trade happened last night doesn't mean it won't happen at all.

    Good point, Although the Celtics have never been able to attract free agents. They may have a shot at Al Horford but I doubt they get Durant.

    I don't know much about the game but Jaylen Brown seems like a good kid. He's respectful and very well spoken for a, you know.... basketball player.

    Don't know any of the guys except Bentil, who is a tough SOB who can score a little bit inside and has a decent midrange jumper.

    Trading for the future number 1 was a no brainer. They had too many picks. If 8 guys come in at once they are only going to have roster spots for two or three of them and the others end up being wasted picks. That may be why they took so many Europeans also. At least they can stagger their arrivals a bit.

    Ainge wanted to either sign Durant or trade for a stud like Jimmy Butler. Neither happened so he drafted the best available

    As a Celtics fan I am happy. A lot of good young talent.....and Ainge is still angling to make a trade. Free agency will be a fun time for us as we have a fuckload of cap room.

    Look out next season.

    Boston Celtics: C

    Round 1: Jaylen Brown (3), Guerschon Yabusele (16), Ante Zizic (23)


    Round 2: Demetrius Jackson (45), Ben Bentil (51), Abdel Nader (58)

    There are two ways to evaluate Boston's draft night.

    Based on pure talent, I really like five of the six players the Celtics netted on Thursday. Boston probably gets an A- to B+ in that category.

    I had Jaylen Brown ranked No. 7 on my Big Board, but there's no question that he has a very high ceiling if he can consistently hit jump shots in the NBA. He wowed the Celtics in workouts. If that's the player that shows up for them, he's got a real shot to be an All-Star someday.

    As my colleague Fran Fraschilla said, Yabusele is the French Larry Johnson. He is a beast in the paint, has a great motor and can step out and hit 3s. Zizic is one of the best rebounders in the draft and also has a terrific motor. Yabusele and Zizic can both be stashed overseas, which adds to their value.

    In the second round I really liked the value they got from Jackson and Bentil. Jackson is a great athlete, plays hard on both sides of the ball and is an ideal backup point guard. Bentil is a scoring machine who can put up points from anywhere on the floor. I have no idea whether they can crack the roster for Boston, but I like the potential of both players.

    Nader wasn't in our top 100, but with their sixth pick at No. 58 it doesn't affect their grade one way or the other.

    The other way to grade the draft is on what we expected from the Celtics.

    Here, they earn an F. The plan for all of these picks, as the Celtics have talked about on multiple occasions, was to package them (and players) to land a young All-Star.

    The Celtics tried hard and got close on a few things, but in the end they didn't deliver. The assets Danny Ainge had just weren't as valuable as he hoped. For Boston and its fans, that's a big disappointment. Nothing that happened on Thursday night will move the needle significantly for the Celtics for a couple of years, unless there is a trade that materializes later.

    I averaged the two grades together to get a grade of C.

    On Mike and Mike today, John Salley said that McHale was the stinkiest ball player he ever saw. Said he brushed his arm under Kevin's armpit during a game and had to take a shower at halftime.
