    Did the Knicks really work to clear cap space so they could give a 4 year $71m contract....Tim Hardaway Jr.? o_O

    Yep. Even though we fucked off a while ago we decided to bring him back. I hate this team.

    In what is becoming a daily segment of why boston sports is the worst of the worst, the celtics are now planting negative stories about how difficult a player they just traded is. Honestly, the guy put the celtics over himself and put the team on his back in a playoff game not 24 hours after burying his sister.

    Yeah it is really weird in all honesty.

    I think (speaking as a Boston fan) most C's fans were perfectly ok with the trade. We loved IT but most people, or at least the ones i know, could see the upside of not paying a max contract to IT, could see a younger player who can score just like IT, a guy who has played well in the finals and brings the exact same disinterest in defending. We have all the legendary "assests" for exactly this type of situation where we could pull the trigger on a super-star.

    IT is a fan favourite, people love the guy but people would be fine with the trade.

    Why the hell are they trying to trash IT? Even for the harshness of the Boston media it is shit.

    We just gave them a 2nd round pick in 2020. Trade is now complete.

    Worth pointing out that the Celtics are now 12-0 since Kyrie Irving told a fan to suck his dick

    Celtics are now 14-0 since Kyrie Irving told a fan to suck his dick,

    Beat Golden State despite Marcus Smart going 0 for the game from the field and actually committing one of the stupidest offensive goaltending incidents in recent memory. But defensively he was an absolute monster.

    Celtics/Warriors will be the finals, IMO.

    Incredible defensive performance from the Celtics and a huge statement. Hopefully they face the Cavs in the postseason, could be a hell of a series. Really enjoying watching the 76'ers this season as well with Simmons and Embiid lighting it up.

    The Sixers are very fun to watch and Embiid is incredible. I give it another month or so before he gets injured again though

    Lonzo Ball is absolute trash. My god. His father's one hell of a marketer though. Propped him up big time and got his son to a top 3 pick and millions of dollars.

    He really isn't a good shooter at all and looks a bit over-matched defensively.

    Good passer, but if he can't figure out how to shoot then he is just Rajon Rondo without the defensive ability.

    Great passer, but cant shoot, cant dribble or play defense. Keep seeing the Rondo comparison but that is being way too generous to Ball, IMO.

    I didnt know i needed a Donald Trump/Lavar Ball feud in my life but I must say, I love this. I love every second of this. So amazing. Comedy gold.

    For those that dont know, Lavar Ball is the only reason his son, Lonzo, is so hyped. He's Lonzo's manager, agent, father, hype man, etc. He also says he could beat MJ 1 on 1. And the stuff he says and does is absolutely hilarious. I hate him but at the same time i love him. He's a great troll.

    The reason there feuding is because the middle of the 3 kids was arrested in China woth 2 or 3 other players from UCLA basketball and Trump got them out and didnt get a thank you so he whined on twitter

    Trump didn't get the thank you and praise from Lavar he thought he deserved.

    LiAngelo Ball and the 2 other UCLA players did thank Trump in their nationally televised press-conference.

    But since Lavar didn't give enough thanks for Trump's taste they are now feuding.

    Like most things with this administration it is impossibly stupid, but it is funny as hell.
