reason the Celtics have no interest in Kawhi is Cap Cash. They want to
stay under the Cap for one more season. That is what we really learned
from the complete lack of moves by Trader Danny in the Draft, and the off
season so far. They are approximately 10-mil under the cap. And they are
not going over the Luxury Tax for nothin' or nobody.
they are also in the most unique, and best, situation of the four teams
that were in the Conference Finals last season. "I feel great that we have a lot of players that people like and
want," Ainge said. "That’s a great feeling to have. That’s not always the case, and that’s the reason we like our guys, too, is we have a lot of talent on our team. I’m excited about our team going forward."
They have already added the most talent this off season of the four
finalists, by far.
quit the crying' Celts' fans, because this is your roster. "I think that most of that is
false," Ainge said. "Especially the details of it. And what I don’t like about it is, I don’t like how names are just thrown around.
[You guys] probably don’t care about the names. And that’s your job is to make good stories, and have things to talk about on the air. Most of it’s not
true. But there’s sometimes bits and pieces of it that are true. So it’s not total
lies. I can’t call it fake news. But it’s complex." I told you
guys they ain't tradin' Brown for nothin'!
(no longer Trader Danny;) is not trading Kyrie's, Gordon's, or Horford's Salary
slot for anyone (Kyrie is taking the Max Deal from the Celts next season).
"These are complex situations, and I think that, just like [you guys] don’t like answering or having to respond to rumors,"
Danny said. "Even though it does give you good programming. I don’t like it any
more: having to deal with the players that are calling me, and the agents that are calling me.
When their name is in a rumor that's just totally made up." The
Celtics are so talented right now (with LeBron gone;)? That if healthy,
they are a lock to go to the Finals.
is so easy to forget that the Celts already added two All-Stars to an Eastern
Conference Finals Team: Kyrie and Hayward. The Warriors added the bitter
and vengeful Cousins. The Cavs lost LeBron, and will be Lotto bound next
season. Houston added a hope and a song. It looks like only the Lakers can
over take the Celtics in the most added talent department to the active
roster from the Conference Finals to now (and they sure as hell weren't
anywhere near a Conference Finals last season;). They will be in the
Conference Finals next year.
they want to stay under the Cap for one more year, and want to hold off
the vicious "Repeater Tax", which will almost quadruple (375%)
every buck over the Cap. "First of all, we don't have the cap space," Ainge
said. "And 2nd of all, we don’t really have a need. We have really good
players." They have some really good CHEAP players.
key phrase there is "We don't really have a need." That is what
we learned from the Draft. The Celtics are set for a long long long time.
If they can keep the personalities together? They are a dynasty waiting to
happen. Trader Danny has put his gun in the holster. Because he knows he
has acquired the most young talent since, gulp, the
Three J's? Which is the only real danger to this team: immaturity, chemistry,
and the Road.
youngsters have to learn to live with each other on the Road, and not let
egos tear them apart. "That is one of my regrets in pro sports, is that we didn’t have enough I would say camaraderie amongst ourselves, core values,"
said. "And our egos were a little bit too big that we couldn’t coexist together for whatever reason it
was." To not be burned up by being: too young, too suddenly rich, and
too much on the Road.
a rock 'n roll band with a sudden hit that grew to hate each other. That
is the only real and present danger to this team. The age of LeBron is
almost over. The age of the Warrior's is almost over. And rising up from
the ashes in the East are the Celtics. With young super talents who earned
their experience, not on loosing teams like most Top Five picks, but in
the fire and furnace of the NBA Playoffs. But money, women, ego, and the
road has destroyed many more friendships than it's made.
mean, the Celtics were led to the Eastern Conference Finals by three guys
still on rookie contracts: Brown (2-years 11.7 Mil). Rozier (1-year 3.1
Mil), and Tatum (three years left on his rookie contract)! "I feel great that we have a lot of players that people like and want," Ainge said. "That's a great feeling to have. That's not always the case, and that's the reason we like our guys, too, is we have a lot of talent on our team. I'm excited about our team going forward."
Your damn right that every team wants guys who led their team to an
Eastern Conference Finals' Game Seven against LeBron.
ARE STILL ON THEIR ROOKIE CONTRACTS! "If I feel like it'll help our team we explore every trade of players of certain magnitude or superstar, first-ballot Hall of Fame-type of players," Ainge said. "We're going to take a look and kick the tires and see if there's something there. But that's
all. I think those things are unlikely." Giving up NBA winners on rookie
contracts for one year wonders is stupid (Yes! Read: Kawhi;).
Celtics top priority this off season is to be under the Cap at all cost.
That is what we learned from this Draft (sometimes it takes a while to
read the tea leaves;). They had the ammo to trade up for whomever they
wanted in the Draft. But that would have quadrupled or quintupled the Cap Space
of the rookie contract. They were stuck at pick 27 for Cap reasons (and
still got a top five physical talent;) for about 1.5 Mil, instead of 6 to
8-Mil per season. And trading that pick for a veteran likely would have
been a disastrous Cap hit.
why this obsession with not paying the Luxury Tax. Because they are in the
most unique situation in the NBA. They were led by three guys on rookie
contracts to Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Finals (against LeBron):
you imbecile, you bloated Idiot, you stupid fat head (I don't know why, but
that just cracks me up;)! Can you remember the last time that
happened, because I can't? The unique, invaluable, and extraordinary
experience that Brown, Rozier, and Tatum got this Post season, sets them
up as winners for 10 to 15 years.
think it is safe to say that we've never seen what the young Celtics
achieved last season, after Gordon and than Kyrie got injured.
"It’s easier when you have three guys already that you've gotten from the years before," Ainge said.
"And you got some budding stars in younger players that are
progressing." If LeBron was the best player in the Eastern Conference
Finals, than Brown, Tatum, and Rozier were 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
didn't just take LeBron to Game Seven in the Eastern Conference Finals,
they were the leaders of the team once Kyrie and Gordon went down. And
without doing any extraordinary deals!?! The Celts are adding two friggin'
All-Stars to those those three young and extraordinary players (with
Horford still leading in the background as well;). Those six guys are the
base of the Celtics going to the Finals for years to come.
accomplished so much more than the Three J's, who were really more a
marketing scheme than a winning team. Because the J's didn't have any
veterans like Kyrie, Gordon, and Horford to learn and lean on. And the
Three J's didn't have veteran leaders like Kyrie and Gordon, two veteran
All-Stars who got injured for the season, and still went to the Friggin'
Conference Finals! But the invaluable lesson is still there for all the
young Celtics, and Kyrie, Gordon, and Horford as well.
team, historically speaking, will only be as good as their chemistry off
the Court, on the Road, and on the Court. And the shots are about to
shrink noticeably for everyone. Kyrie cannot average 25 PPG and only 5.1
APG, like he did last season. Though 10 APG could be the difference
between winning the Finals and losing to the Warriors (though I do think
they will lose to the Warriors in the Finals this season). Gordon cannot
not average 22 PPG and only 3.4 APG, like in 2016-2017. And Brown and
Tatum are not going to average 18 PPG, like they did in the Playoff.
why not trade for a veteran this off season, because they have one year
left were they can still be under the Cap, maybe two (and already don't
have enough shots to go around;). Brown and Rozier (and likely Smart;)
will be up after next season. This is the last year of getting three or
four Playoff Veterans still under a rookie contract salary. Brown- 2-years
left on rookie contract, and then BOOM! Rozier and Smart will be looking
for 10-plus-mil per season a year from now (and are highly unlikely to get
that from the Celtics): Boom! In three years, Tatum will get a Max Deal
bigger than Brown's: BOOM!
they also have a slue of potential Lottery picks that they can rely on to
add cheap talent in the coming years. That is why they didn't trade into
the Lotto. They already have the Lotto picks that will be cheap NBA Contracts
for four years after they are Drafted, like Brown, Rozier and Tatum are
now. So when the Celtics are in the NBA Salary Cap penalty box, they can
still add three, four, or five rookie contracts to develop. That is how a
dynasty is built in the new Luxury Tax Capped NBA.
they desperately want to be under the Luxury Tax this year, because that
gives them four years before they have to pay 375% on every penny over the
Luxury Tax. That is what Danny told us at the Draft. He is going to
squeeze this year's team out under the damn Cap, like he's giving birth.
It is going to hurt, and be ugly and bloody, but in the end it could be
Celts are about 19-Mil under the Luxury Cap right now. So they will NOT!
Be paying Smart more than 6 to 8 Mil this season. They would rather lose
him this off season than be over the Luxury Cap. That is their primary
goal: add a healthy Kyrie and Gordon to an Eastern Conference Finals team
(in an Eastern Conference that just lost LeBron!!!), and stay under the Luxury
Tax at all costs (about 123-Mil). It is good to be a Celtic.
6 to 8-Mil contract to Smart would bring them up to about 115-119-Mil.
Which would give Danny about 4 to 9 Mil to play with during the season.
That is what we learned on Draft Night, and everything they have done
since. They are at about 109-Mil right now, and they are not going over
123-Mil for any reason this season. With three or four uber talented
youngsters hitting BIG contracts over the next three years, and a slew of
picks to replenish veterans leaving, the plan was revealed on Draft Night
for all to see.
