That's what you get for tanking the season.

First off Zaza Pachulia is great at center, Marvin Williams is a sixth man, I am not high on him at all. Javaris at 1 or Papaloukas, JJ 2, JSmoove 3, Brandan 4, and Zaza 5. We could use a true scoring PF like Yi or Brandan. And since we are a run and gun team ala the Suns we can play Smoove at 4 and Brandan at 5.

I may be going out on a limb here... but I don't know... I'd think Wally Szczerbiak (15 PPG) missing 49 games, Paul Pierce (25 PPG) missing 34 games and Al Jefferson (16.1 PPG) missing 22 might have had something to do with the Celtics record. Theo Ratliff played two games. Tony Allen (11.5 PPG) missed 48 games.

Down the stretch, the guys the Celtics were trotting out there included Gerald Green, Delonte West, Rajon Rondo, Allen Ray, Ryan Gomes on top of Al Jefferson. I don't think a single one of them is older than 25.

So I'd say it's pretty easy to figure out why they were in the position they were in. Anyone that claims they "tanked it" must have a very high opinion of those guys I just listed...

Edit: and for the record, I think every single one of those guys will eventually be really, really good NBA players. Eventually.

Pachulia can be upgraded over. He's not "great" at Center. Marvin Williams is one of the most talented young players in the NBA right now. Smith has him right now but Marvin has oodles of ability.

What the hell would you do with Johnson then? It's going to be Conley or Hibbert IMO.

Nah, no one should feel sorry for us. It is what it is. It sucks, but that's just the way the process works. It's got to be hard to feel bad for a team with 16 banners hanging from the rafters...

As much as the lottery results hurt the C's fans tonight, I still don't think it's as bad as it was when they missed out on Tim Duncan. They had the No.1 and No. 3 picks heading into the lottery, and came away with picks 3 and 6. Pitino drafts Chauncey Billups (great pick until he dealt him midseason!) and Ron Mercer (meh.)

Good work Pitino.

i like how people think they run the same offense as phoenix, just because your team tries to score fast doesn't make them like the suns, we actually are very organized in our offense and no one can do what nash does

Yes and no. Maybe. We've had good times and bad times. But at least one of our teams has been one of the best pretty much throughout. So I guess it could be worse. For years, it was the Celtics and Bruins carrying the weight. Now he roles have reversed.

I'd say New York is a little more spoiled, but we're probably up there...

Just needs to get stronger and needs some defensive work but his post skills, his range, and his passing skills are very promising assets for him.

I've finally cooled off, I'm always pissed after the top few spots are given out. I really wanted Boston or Milwaukee to get the top pick. But I'll enjoy seeing Seattle become respectable again.

I have not seen Hawes, but from what I've heard is good. If what i've read is correct he does well from the pick and roll/pop and that would work real well with the bulls.

However, personally I think Hibbert would be better for the next 3-4 years for title runs.

my problem with hawes (when i watched him which was sparingly) is that he can disappear from games. He doesnt stand out at all on the floor. Hibbert did to me, so maybe thats why Id like Hibbert more.

Hibbert is also 2 years older than Hawes. He's 19 years old, of course he's going to disappear at times, it's called being inexperienced.

I like how people are singling out Boston as the only team who tanked...Milwaukee benched Redd (left knee pain), Mo Williams (left knee pain), and Brian Skinner (ear infection...no joke)...Memphis also tanked multiple games...there are plenty of games where they had very large, double didgit leads and completely, magically blew them...yea the Celtics did tank it...Im not denying that...we were starting Brian Scalbrine for God's sake, but we were not the only ones in this business...I find it a little ironic that the 3 most blatant tanking teams ended up with the worst possible picks they could get...for some reason I keep thinking Stern has a say in who gets each pick behind those closed doors...



That being said I think think the Celtics are left with some very nice options...sure we definitely needed a center, but Jefferson managed himself very well at the 5 this year with Perkins out and starting Gomes at the 4...with that being said we will have a shot at Yi, Brandon Wright, Julian Wright, Jeff Green, Al Horford...all those could be very solid picks and contribute to the team...I personally like Brandon Wright the best...he is a great athlete and has an incredible wingspan allowing him to be a big time shot blocker...he was under used in that UNC offense because there was so much talent around him...I think he could be a Bosh like player if he bulks up some...Yi is a bit of an unknown...he could end up being a Dirk like player and be a great compliment to Jefferson, but I skeptical on foreign players...but unlike many foreign players Yi has had serious production and put up big numbers against team USA...Horford is just a polished down low player who can contribute right away...those players are never bad and Horford has all the tools...then there's Julian Wright, Jeff Green, and Corey Brewer...who all bring some different things to the table, but all could come in at SF and help Pierce out...I am greatly disappointed...Oden would have been huge for us...but that being said there are still some great options left

Um why would Stern put arguably the two best talents to come around in a while, well since LeBron and Carmelo out West where no one pays attention? Marketing wise that's not smart. Which is why Boston or Atlanta would've been the good places for these guys to go because they have good markets. Charlotte, eh I guess but it's still not up there with Boston or Atlanta.

Maybe this puts the West coast, preferably Seattle and Portland back on the map in sports because no one really cares about those two cities in the sports world.

Oh and here's a little something for you Bulls fans that'll give you even more reason to be pissed off by Eddy Curry; had he not hit the game tying three and the game winning basket in the last game of the regular season, we would've been at #6 (where Portland was) and we'd be picking #1 right now with a chance to get Oden. Son of a *****, haha.

Hold the phone ladies and gents:

Hibbert might not enter the draft. And I've heard too that Hawes may be in the same boat. Should be interesting.

I'd sooner give him a nudge.
Simmons is phenomenal...there's no need to do that.
