Here is Part One of my 

2017 Boston Celtics 3.0

1st Round Mock Draft.

SV=Standing Vert, MV=Max Vert + SR-Standing Reach = MVR Max Vert Reach.

Yeah, no. No-No-No-No-No-No-No. Uh Danny? No. Don't tell  me that Fultz isn't a generational player. He did things at 18 that hadn't been done in a generation. He led Division One college basketball in scoring average at 18. That has been done in a generation. He had the highest scoring average in the PAC-12 since 1997. That has been done in a generation.

For crying out loud, I take one day off for Father's Day. I play a little basketball, watch my son's Little League Playoff Game, and then we all go out for dinner, and go basketball sneaker shopping on a perfect day. And then all Hell breaks loss. I wake up this morning to Danny trading the best player in the Draft Markelle Fultz. NO-NO-NO.

I will say this abut Fultz. He reminds me of Rose. One thing about Fultz is that he hurt his knee last season, and that was Rose's one and maybe only problem in the NBA. Can Fultz stay healthy in the NBA. That was my only worry with Fultz, and that cannot be predicted or really considered.

First off what Jared was doing is not a "Backdoor". A "Backdoor" is a legal way to have private conversations with other world leaders for the benefit of America. What Jared set up was a Covert/Illegal/treasonous communication with a foreign enemy who was ATTACKING US! And let's be clear again: 

As the Impeachment of Trump continues the (R)s have used that

and the Baseball Shooting, to attack our Democracy again.

All this talk of over-partisanship is poppycock. 

The (R)s are the open, proud, and clear aggressors in over-partisanship.

When the (R)s are dismantling our government in a furious effort to attack the 99%, 

and give even more to the 1%, 

than they have to be stopped.

When they are creating TOP-SECRET LEGISLATION to destroy

MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS RIGHT TO SEE LIFE SAVING DOCTORS!

Than it is not a PARTISAN ISSUE. It is an American Citizen issue.

Mitch (I hate the 99%) McConnell and Paul (the Scumbag) Ryan

have phased Democrats completely out of the Senate and Congress, 

AND THUS ALL CITIZENS OF AMERICA.

Instead of doing their job, and helping their constituency, they attack the rights of working men and women all over the country, with some of the most vicious, cruel, and un-American legislation I have ever seen! They are letting the worst Corporate polluters poison our

CHILDREN!

Markelle Fultz

1. Sixers- Markelle Fultz- Washington, 19 years old, 6-4, 185, 6-9 WS, 8-6 SR.

41.3% 3-P! 23.2 PPG, 6.7 APG, 5.7 APG, 50.2% 2-P, 1.6 Steals, 1.2 Blocks.

The Team: The Sixers got the steal of the Draft. "They have a young team, and I think the upside of it would be crazy," Fultz said about Philly. "I'm close to home. So a lot of my family can come out and just show love. And this city has great fans." Trading up to #1, with either an extra 1st in 2018 or an extra 1st in 2019 for Markelle Fultz. 

Futz is the prize in this years Draft, like Simmons was last year. "I really don't pay a lot of attention to it," Fultz said about the rumors of him being traded to Philly. "I'm blessed. I pray every night before I go to sleep. I let God take care of that. I wake up every morning and get ready to go to the gym. I don't really pay attention to everything that's going on." He has top character.

He actually wants to play for the Sixers. "Oh, man, I can see it happening," Fultz said about coming to Philly before the trade. "I come to Philly a lot, and just showing the love for the city. I'm out here. I just want to show love. That's all it was. I got to get a cheesesteak. I'm big on that." He's a local kid.
Simmons, Embiid (if healthy), and Saric will give them a hell of a top four. "Embiid and me have been talking before," Fultz said. "He’s a cool guy, pretty funny. So when I saw that it was like, cool. I’m happy the players want me to come here." You win with stars in the NBA, and Philly now has three or four stars to give the Celtics some trouble for a long while.

The Sixers want to move Simmons to PG. "We need Ben at point guard," HC Brett Brown. "Let Joel be Joel and we need shooters around them." If they want Simmons to play the point than they have to succeed with the musical chairs that will follow defensively. Simmons can cover Power Forwards and Small Forward. But I just don't see him covering other positions.

So they have a need for defensive players first and foremost to make that plan work. "I do concede the thing that we missed with him not playing after the all-star break is I have this vision that I want to pursue with him as a point guard," Brown said. "Nobody can promise that I'm right. I don't know, either. But I think from what I have studied from his childhood, high school and at LSU, I feel confident that we should try this and look at it. We would know a lot more if he had played." They need a Wing who can cover SGs and Small Forwards, and maybe PGs and PFs as well.
That is starting to sound more and more like Malik Monk. "It is of that species, that is for sure," Brown said. "It's somebody that can guard the other point guard. It's somebody that can make a Three, and can bring the ball up the floor from time to time. It's a combo guy." They need a pure SG (Monk), who can cover PGs defensively.

And with the Third pick in the Draft they also need him to be a star, or an offensive force. "To Bryan Colangelo's credit, he does fit the qualities we're going to need in that position next to Ben Simmons," Brown said. "If you go Ben Simmons at a 1, that type of player at a 2, Covington at a 3, Saric at a 4 and Embiid at a 5? Can that team play defense? You bet. Can they score? You bet. Can they run? Yes they can." Only Monk is not a PG in any way shape or form. He is a pure shooter who can play a little defense, and little else.

One thing we know for sure is that Johnson can play the wing defender role. It is much easier to find a Shooting Guard in a Point Guard body in the NBA. Then Covington can cover Twos, and Simmons and Johnson can cover the Threes and Fours. Or, Saric can cover the Threes or Fours and Jackson can cover the Twos. But if they honestly want Simmons to play the Point, and I wholeheartedly agree that he can, than they have to think about an ultra-versatile defender first, and that is Jackson.
The Player: Markelle Fultz: Baby Faced Assassin

The Reason: You have to give Philly credit. They found the talent they wanted, and they went and got him. "I think that should we move or should a transaction come up that gives us the chance to perhaps increase what impact No. 3 could have in terms of its return, I think we will look at it," Colangelo said. "There’s some discussions that have been fairly interesting. And its not that were motivated to move it. It’s just that time of year where you find out what you have and you explore all options." He made a bold move up.
Fultz is the player who is clearly ahead of all the rest in this Draft. "I think if you look at him, you look at the tools that he brings," the VP of PP Marc Eversley said. "He's very versatile, he's got a great handle, he's got terrific vision. He's a great passer. I think he can shoot with range. And I think he's a very good defender." He is an underrated defender.
They didn't really want another Wing. "We have a choice of multiple wings that would address things with our team that we have said that we would like to address," Colangelo said. "There are some guards that you have to look at that would dramatically improve our guard play." And he got the best guard in the Draft.
Fultz is a franchise changing player. "I think that should we move or if there's a transaction that comes out that gives us a chance to perhaps increase what impact No. 3 can have in terms of its return, I think we will look at it," Colangelo said about the trade he is now consummating with the Celtics. "There's some discussions that have been fairly interesting." It was interesting enough to pull the trigger.
They have have two of the best passers who can also score (and Fultz is a great shooter), from the last two Drafts. "I think good basketball players and good decision makers and guys that get out and run and can finish in transition and shooting obviously would all be things that complement Ben Simmons," Colangelo said. "Defensively we probably want to put guys around him that can guard the point guard in certain cases. In some cases Ben will be able to guard the point guard and in some cases you’ll want him guarding off the ball." You win with stars in the NBA.

Second Choice: Trade pick back to the Celtics.

Lonzo Ball

2. LA- Lonzo Ball- UCLA, PG, 6-6, 190, WS 6-7, 41.2% 3-P! 73.2% 2-P!

7.6 APG, 14.5 PPG, 6 RPG, 1.8 SPG, .8 BPG,

The Team: Ball is the type of guy who can pull a team together with his magic on the court (pun intended;). "They have a lot of good players," Ball said. "I just think they need a leader at point guard. I feel I can bring that to the team." The Lakers are overloaded with PGs. Though I don't think that Russell is a PG. But Clarkston certainly is.

They started winning at the end of the season with Brandon Ingram at the Point. "I think a lot of it is just natural," Ball said about leadership. "I think you're either born a leader or you're not." Russell is not! But Brandon might be. It is not a shock that he took on some of that role. He played some point at Duke as well. 
But Ball is a guy who can dominate a game without taking a shot. "My dad loved [Magic], loved the way the Lakers played, so I kind of patterned my game after that," Ball said. "Magic Johnson is one of the greatest players to ever play. I love the way coach Walton coaches. Rob's a great dude too. Just meeting all of them is a blessing." It is hard for me to imagine Magic passing on a generational passer, who sees the floor the way he does (or did;).
He is clearly the second best prospect in this Draft, and a better passer than Fultz. "It was a blessing," Ball said. "He's the best point guard to ever play. Me, being a point guard, I looked up to him my whole life. And to finally get a chance to meet him is a blessing." Amazingly this is the third year in a row that they have earned the 2nd pick in the Draft. 
Of course the annoying thing to me is that we have to talk about his Dad when discussing Lonzo. Lakers head coach Luke Walton said, "[I have] a very outspoken father myself." But doesn't see it as as a problem for him or Lonzo. "We’re in the NBA, to me, that’s not an issue. Parents are always gonna have their opinions. They’re gonna be outspoken at times. As you know, I have a very outspoken father myself. It doesn’t bother me. If we were to draft him, we’re gonna coach him. He’s gonna be part of our team. He’s gonna be part of our family. And we’ll go from there. This is the NBA. We’ll keep the team where it needs to be. We’ll not let outside things like that influence us on whether or not we pick the kid." But I think the story over his dad being a nut job goes further than the truth.
Lonzo does seem to have a good head on his shoulder. "They said they want me to come in, if I get picked, come in and be a leader and play with a lot of pace," Ball said. "So the stuff they were saying was very positive, and it kind of fits my game. They need a leader. They need a point guard. I feel like I can play that role." I have no doubt that eventually he will.
The Player: Ball is the purest PG to come out since Kidd. "Does he possess the talent, and the mindset, and the basketball skill we're looking for?" Magic said. "Of course. We just have to get him in for an interview first before we can make those types of decisions." He consistently makes the positive passes that put teammates in better position than before the pass.

That is a great skill to have, and rarer than you'd think. "This young man has been a champion in high school," Magic said. "And then he’s gone on to have a stellar career at UCLA. And his father was talking at that time, but it didn’t bother him. So as long as it doesn’t bother him, it’s not going to bother the Laker organization as long as Lonzo performs on the basketball court, right?" Which is something he has done his whole life.

The Reason: You know Magic loves Ball's passing abilities more than most. "I am aware of some of the comments of Lonzo’s dad, and I think he’s someone who’s passionate about his son," Jeanie Buss said. "I admire that. In my long history there was a time when I was heavily involved in tennis promotion, so I dealt with a lot of the tennis players’ parents. Their commitment to their kids rivals LaVar Ball’s connection to his own children." If they don't mind his Dad's shenanigans than this is an easy pick.
Jerry West seems to have given them his endorsement. "I don’t even like to talk about his dad. I’d rather talk about the kid," West said. "His dad, to me, I wouldn’t want a father like that, to be honest with you. Because I think he puts added pressure on his kid. You know he loves his kid. You know that. But it should be about his kids, not about him." But his father didn't bother him and his coach at UCLA.
So I have trouble believing that he will be trouble for the Lakers. "I don't look at any parent, when it comes to a professional league, that would be a problem," Magic said. "We’ve always had parents who loved their sons or daughters, who play in professional golf or basketball, or whatever, who get involved, who get excited, and also who think that their child is the best." Still, you have to wonder if Lonzo has some of LaVar's crazy.

If Magic doesn't think his Dad will be a distraction than that is good enough for me. "Now, some will say it publicly, some will only think it, but I have no problem with LaVar," Magic said. "[He deserves] a lot of credit for being in not just Lonzo’s life, but the other two sons, as well. It also seems like it hasn’t bothered Lonzo." Lonzo is a little too quiet for a PG.
I just don't think either the Celts or Lakers can get away from the two point guards. "Nothing in a workout or what I hear from a workout is really going to change [anything]," Goodman said. "From what I was told, Fultz didn’t shoot the ball exceptionally well in his workout in Boston, but they know he can shoot the ball. It’s one workout, it’s a one-on-zero deal. I was there after that workout, and then I came out to LA for Lonzo Ball’s workout here, and then I sat with LaVar and Lonzo yesterday for a while in Chino Hills. So I still think it’s going to be Fultz at One, Lonzo Ball at two, I think Magic is enamored by Lonzo Ball. And then I think Three is a little bit of a tricky choice for Bryan Colangelo and the Sixers. Do they go with Josh Jackson? Do they go with Jayson Tatum? It’ll be one of those two, I have a feeling." I have a feeling as well.

Second Choice: Josh Jackson SF

Josh Jackson

3. Celtics- Josh Jackson- Wing, 6-8, 203, Kansas, FR, WS 6-9 3/4, 8-3 SR,

16.3 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 3 APG, 54.9% 2-P, 37.8 3-P, Steals, 1.7, 1.1 Blocks,

The Team: You win with stars in the NBA. This is not football. The Celtics just traded a bona fide NBA star for a bag of magic beans in 2018, or maybe just possibly in 2019. They went through all these ridiculous trades to get themselves in position to pick up a franchise changer. Then boom! He was gone. Jayson Tatum is not a franchise changer. He is not a star. He is certainly not Paul Pierce, please.

The Celtics needed a star. They need to be loaded up with Superstars in three or four years to take a run at the Warriors. That started with Brown, and should have continued with Fultz. This puts them back a few stepped in the process. 

Jackson is an interesting prospect, but where is he going to play? He played power forward at Kansas. He is a good defensive rebounder, and an elite athlete and defender. He is as fierce and scrappy as it gets. He discourages very good players with his defense. He is defined by his competitiveness. But is he a star? He is certainly not a star on the offensive end.

This trade has to keep coming back to stars. You win with stars in the NBA. You win with Curry, Durant and Green. Those three guys are the stars that nearly led to a sweep over the Cavs. The Celtics started winning with their Superstar Isaiah, and Bradley becoming a star. Those two guys led them to the Eastern Conference Finals. Then when Isaiah went down, Brown and Smart stepped up a little to show hope that they might someday be stars. 

You just don't trade away a star for a bag of magic beans! "If Boston can turn that into more than one player and still get a guy it wants," an Exec said. "I think they’d love to do that." That is always the best. When you can trade down and still get the guy you think is a star.

Okay, take a breath. Calm. Easy. This pick is reminiscent of the last time the Celtics had the top pick in the NBA Draft. So long ago that it has been misreported that the Celtics have never had a number one pick. They traded the Number One pick in the Draft to Golden State (who they are now current trying to catch up with;) for a unmotivated Center named Robert Parrish, and the 3rd pick in the Draft. 

That pick turned into Kevin McHale. "I told Kevin that today," Ainge said. "We've got a spot for him. I know we could figure something out for him in some capacity. But I think he's just in a wait and see mode." But are there any McHale's out there in Pick Three Land.

Plus, there is also a chance that the #3 turns into Lorenzo Ball. If the Celtics get Ball out of this deal it is an absolute steal. Ball is a more efficient scorer (thought Fultz is a better scorer), a better passer and defender, shot the same percentage from Three as Futz, and affect wins without shooting better than Fultz. His problem is that we don't know if he has his Dad's crazy, and if after his rookie contract is up he will pull a Paul George and only want to sign with an LA team. 

I have to trouble with Fultz and Ball as 1 and 1A in this Draft. If I'm the Lakers I take that 1A option and laugh all the way to the bank. If I'm the Celtics I worry about his dad forcing him back to LA in a few years. If LA passes on Ball, and Danny thinks the Celtics winning will keep him in Boston for at least that second contract, he is a steal. And we all know how things tend to work out for Trader Danny.

The Player: Jackson reminds me of Jimmy Butler. He is a defensive first Wing, with a lot of offensive upside. I say he has a lot of offensive upside, because he is far from being an offensive player teams have to worry about. He has to work obsessively on his 3-Point shot, like Butler did, to become the star people think he is. He is already one of, it not the, fiercest competitors in this Draft. That goes a long way in the NBA. 

He has already meet with the Sixers. "It was definitely just more of come in and try to impress them and hopefully I impressed them enough," Jackson said. "But they can’t look past any guy in this draft because we’re all really, really talented and I think we all bring a lot to the table." If Brown is thinking about a SG in a PG-body, who can cover PGs and be a deadly shooter, than it will be Monk.

However, Monk is not a PG in any way other than size. He is one of the worst passers in this Draft. He is a boom or bust cluster-scorer, like Vinnie Johnson. "The point guards in this draft are really-really-really good, and are special," Jackson said. "But I don’t think you can really look past anybody in this draft. Point guard or forward, it doesn’t matter. I think this is a really good draft class." If Brown is thinking versatile defender to pair with Covington to cause havoc around Simmons on defense? Than Jackson is the easy pick.
He probably has the best versatility of any player in this Draft. "The way the game is changing so much today, versatility is pretty important," Jackson said. "I think I bring a lot to the table, especially being able to switch on pretty much any position except the Five." But he seemed more comfortable covering Fours than I like, because I don't see him doing that in the NBA.
Jackson carries the most off field baggage of anyone in the Lottery in this Draft. He admitted to vandalizing a car of a ladies basketball player from Kansas. "It was just something I had to do,” Jackson said. "And I learned from the mistake that I made and I’m making it through it." He was ordered to attend anger management classes.

The Reason: The pick only makes sense if the Celtics never exercise this pick. I would rather trade down for 5 and 10 than exercise this pick (I'm not pouting;). I would rather they trade for one year wonder Paul George. I would rather pick up Isaac at Five and Ntilikina at Ten than exercise this pick. But this is not what we are looking for. I don't either is going to be a Superstar. Though both have a chance to be stars.

The point of the trade is that they now have three possible top five Lottery Picks again. They have the Nets pick next year, which has a shot at top three. They have the Lakers pick next year, if it is 2 through 5, which could be two top five picks in a Draft that is said to have four stars in it; Or they could end up with the Kings pick in 2019 (instead of the Lakers pick, according to the conditions of the trade), which is a good bet to be top five as well. 

Of course the theme of this story is also that they don't want Jackson either. It is well know that Divac wants Jackson and is will to trade up to get him. Ainge has been interviewing guys in the 5 to 10 range. There are clear indications that Ainge wants to trade this pick, and maybe trade down to five, or trade for a veteran. That would guarantee them four Lottery picks over the next two or three years.

So trader Danny made his big move, and the only question left is was it to pick, or trade for a veteran? Getting one of the big names out there would put them in the Cavs class. Getting two of the big names out there could put them in the Warriors class. It smells like Trader Danny is putting away picks to win now.

This of course would be true genius, if Trader Danny traded back, and picked up a veteran All-Star, and still ended up with two Lottery picks in the next two Drafts. Could they make a move for George, for the 5th pick, and still have Ten. The Pacers can't be expecting much for the One year wonder who wants to go home to LA next year. Trader Danny clearly has more to offer than the Cavs.

"The Indiana Pacers are looking to move star forward Paul George prior to Thursday's NBA draft, and have been immersed in trade talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told Amico Hoops late Sunday," Sam Amico wrote. "One source familiar with the talks said a deal could potentially involve multiple players from both sides. According to sources, the Pacers are looking to get a substantial player and picks for George."
It would be a big risk for the one year wonder. "There is also the matter of the Boston Celtics, who seem prepared to offer some of their many 1st-round draft picks in a quest for George," Sam Amico continued. "The Celtics own the No. 1 overall pick this year (now #3, and maybe #5 tomorrow;). Although a reported swap with the Philadelphia 76ers is expected to move the Celtics' selection to third. The Celtics also own multiple 1st-round picks in the 2018 and 2019 drafts." But if they get to the Finals it would be a lot harder for George to leave the Celtics for LA.

Then there are the beautiful rumors of Anthony Davis. Are they real? Ian Thompson seems to think so:

I can't believe we're talking about Anthony Davis as a possible thing [to the Celtics]. But that's how much stock the Celtics have built up. And, that's the kind of predicament they're in, in New Orleans... If you're trying to get Anthony Davis. [Trader] Danny's never said he's going after Anthony Davis, but we all know he is. Just like if LaBron gets the ball near the rim you know he going to dunk it. You know Danny's trying to get Anthony Davis now.

I can't believe were realistically talking about Anthony Davis coming to Boston. "You wanna talk about Anthony Davis," Thompson said. "They have not been winning with him. They're having a hard time developing their team. They're in this no man's land. And they are seeing this whole trend of players leaving small market teams to go elsewhere. They saw Kevin Durant [leave]. Paul George is leaving. When Anthony Davis comes up, he owns a house in Los Angeles. And if they aren't able to build a winner around him [he's gone]. Well now they have a chance to get all these #1 picks, guys they'll have under contract really for seven years, and they can rebuild around DeMarcus Cousins (LOL). Whose from Mobile Alabama. They can start to rebuild that way." I'll take Davis over Fultz any day.

Remember the NBA Draft and the NFL Draft are different, and almost opposite things. "They are an NFL Franchise. They are owned by the New Orleans Saints," Thompson said. "They have an NFL Mentality. You can see it in the way they built their team. They do not understand this NBA Idea of developing for the long term. That's why they've made all these short term moves that have not worked out. They may be looking down the road, and seeing that players like Anthony Davis leave when the team doesn't win." They have to start looking more long term.

Davis is gone when his contract is up. That is the biggest factor to me. If they trade this pick, and the magical Lottery pick in a year or two, for Anthony Davis than I am the number one fan of this deal. Davis would be the perfect Celtic. He doesn't give a crap about anything except winning. He could turn into the new Kevin McHale, from the Golden State pick.
