Re: '18 MD PF Jermain Harris (Offer)

Harris sounds like he's just what the doctor ordered.
Big boys getting involved is problematic, as it

Re: CELTICS and the NBA

I've seen Porzingas handle the ball pretty well.
Again,l who on the Celtics comes within miles of his talent?
Again, he's only 21.
He's fed up with all the Knicks drama. He's from Latvia, so
the Boston climate isn't a deterrent for him, as it seems to
be for many NBA players.

At 21 years old, he's still learning.

Re: CELTICS and the NBA

Rumor of the day is, the Knicks are looking to trade Porzingas.
He's 7'3" 21 years old, with incredible upside.
He can shoot from anywhere, rebound, and block shots.
He's far better than anyone in this years draft.
He's just what the Celtics need.

Re: CELTICS and the NBA

Fultz never made anyone around him better.
His body language is awful.
Of the PGs, I think Fox from Kentucky is clearly better than
Fultz or Ball.
However, the Celts need help up front.
Jackson is a total package, and can do everything,
and contributed to some late heroics for Kansas.
