    Question: Is a win without Leader/Closer Kyrie more satisfying?

    I have been to 2 Celtics games this year ...
    Not saying they are a better team without him ...
    But they play harder when he is on the bench - what does that say?

    Maybe they believe they can lay back and let irving carry them. IMO it would be a monumental mistake to sign irving to a long term contract. He Always has an excuse or points fingers at his team mates even going as far as blaming or second guessing brad stevens. Hes a cancer, let him go to the knicks.

    Watching this team play is sometimes like dragging one's genitals through a pile of broken glass. This game is one of those times.

    Gotta give credit where credit is due. The C's were impressive last night at Indy ....across the board. Kyrie opened strong. Tatum's ball handling skills were impressive. Hayward was perfect. Al, Aussie Sniper, Lock-down Smart....more than solid
    Indy is toast

    He usually sits vs bad teams. Only good team they've beaten without him is Philly.

    So is anyone optimistic beyond beating the Pacers?
    They need to play defense for the entire game like last year ... so we'll see.

    Draft update:
    According to tankathon.com (great website), as of 7:54 AM April 9, 2019, Boston draft pick slots are as follows:

    #14 from Sacramento
    #18-#20 (3 way tie) from LA Clippers
    #22 Boston
    #52 Boston

    Most interesting is the #1-#8 protected Memphis pick that current resides out of the money at #7-#8 (2 way tie with Dallas). Just a few days ago, this pick dropped to #9 before a Memphis loss lifted them to current position.
    Memphis has 2 games left: vs Detroit on road, a reeling team fighting for the final playoff position in the East, and vs Golden State at home, a team with nothing to gain.
    Dallas also has 2 games left, at Milwaukee and home vs Indiana....both teams with nothing to gain.
    New Orleans who sits at #9 has one game left vs Golden State at home.

    Odds are that the Memphis pick ends as a protected pick but never discount all teams' desire to tank this time of year. Memphis might screw up and win a game giving Boston a chance to draft at #9.

    Boston will no doubt lose their final game vs Washington given the list of players sitting this one out. Currently #22 Boston is within one game of #18 -#20 LA Clippers (3 way tie) while San Antonio and OKC are still battling for playoff position.

    Does Boston want #9 this year to go with their other 3 mid first rounders?
    With so many picks, will Trader Danny feel the need to draft young foreign players knowing they won't play in the US next season.

    Pre lottery lottery complete and the luck of the leprechaun touched all colors but green

    Celts pick.....22 (locked in)... could have been 21
    Clippers pick....20 (locked in)...could have been 18
    Kings pick .....14 (slotted in / subject to lottery adjustment....could have been slotted at 12
    Memphis pick....8 (slotted in / subject to lottery adjustment....could have been slotted between 7-9

    Memphis pick has 46% chance of dropping out of protected 8 at lottery

    They can get a solid player at 14 and probably 2 stash players with 20 and 21.
    I doubt we get the Memphis this year which is no big deal.

    For comparison purposes, Terry Rozier was a #16 pick. (Dooooooomed)

    Have to believe one #1 pick will be used to replace Scary unless Flat Earther bolts and Ainge panics and resigns Rozier.

    On another note, what if the Celtics were playing Brooklyn in the playoffs. I’m not so sure Boston would win this series. Couldn’t beat them on the road.
    Consider Boston’s roster has been fortified by Brooklyn’ s high draft picks and 3 max salary stars, yet Brooklyn and it’s piecemeal roster would be competitive IMO.

    was anybody impressed with the Celtics Sunday? they almost had as many turnovers as they did points.
