I always thought Gary Payton was bald.  :hmm:
Melinda was mine til the time that I found her
Holding Jim, loving him.
Then Sue came along, loved me strong
That's what I thought
But me and Sue, that died too.

It is far better for the truth to tear my flesh to pieces, then for my soul to wander through darkness in eternal damnation.

Jet: So what kind of woman is she? What's Julia like?
Faye: Ordinary. The kind of beautiful, dangerous ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
Jet: I see.
Faye: Like an angel from the underworld. Or a devil from Paradise.

Celtics got the number 1 pick! :yeah:

Good management developing through the draft vs. long term pain for very short term gain for the Nets.
We need your wisdom Mr. Murrow

Yup. Celtics are making slow and steady progress.

Didn't have any chance against the Cavs this year, but next year is looking like a real possibilty if we get a difference maker in the draft and manage to sign Hayward in the offseason.

The Celtics are looking hard at signing Jazz forward Gordon Hayward in the off-season, The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Boston is “really focused” on courting Hayward, who will be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

The Jazz own Hayward’s bird rights and can offer him more money than any other team this summer. Hayward did not make an All-NBA team this year and will not be eligible for a designated player extension (a “supermax” contract), which has led to some speculation that he may look around at other teams.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens coached Hayward in college at Butler, where both made their names during a run to the NCAA title game in 2010.

Hayward, 27, averaged 21.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists this season and led Utah to the conference semifinals.

I know what you're insinuating, but Boston is a big market team, that just got to the Conference Finals and most importantly has a personal connection with him given that Brad Stevens was his college coach. Those things, as well as their cap space, make them the most likely contender for his services. The only one I can see beating us is Miami if he picks based on the weather and night life.

This is what the they like.

And what is he insinuating?  :huh:

The rumours of Hayward to Boston have been going on for a bit already.

That Boston just wants a white star to gin up enthusiasm among a racist fanbase.

The Spurs didn't much up much of a fight in game 2 either.  Welp.

At least  they won two playoff series. Other number one seeds have been upset earlier.
