The best explanation I've seen about the Celtics side is pretty much, he wanted to play so they told him what he wanted to hear.

One of the most storied franchises in the sport isn't going to risk obliterating their reputation by lying to a player about the extent of his injuries, just to... what, get a extra few games worth of great play out of him to boost his (already very high) trade value? And physicians aren't going to risk serious investigation, losing their ability to practice medicine, etc. because Danny Ainge slipped them a few extra stacks under the table to keep hush-hush or something.

Yeah, I can safely say some championships Bill Russell won against guys who bagged groceries won't stop an organization from doing everything it can to be successful today.

That's not the point. Cleveland, a team that just went to three consecutive Finals and could have had their pick of several packages offered by other teams, traded for IT even when they knew he'd miss significant time. IT's value was established. People were going to pull the trigger and take a risk on IT whether Boston "lied" about an injury or not. Dude showed what he could do all season long.

I'll probably take a team with zero track record of sketch history (save for a former player representing another franchise gifting them KG) over one basketball player who's been pretty demonstrative about feeling like a jilted ex-lover.

But the problem is from the playoffs, not from when the teams exchanged medicals for a trade.

You're the only person I've seen really reference trade value when talking about this story though. Everyone else seems to seems to see a situation where an organization may have pushed a guy because they knew they weren't paying him when his contract was up.

I'm assuming Noel won't get into this game tonight. So he'll end up playing about 70 minutes this month. Is there a reason Dallas isn't trading him?

If IT reaches full health, with or without D Rose, I think the Cavs walk through finals to a proper 6-7 games against the Warriors.

Well we can't fire Carmelo, so someone's going to have to fall on a sword. I fucking hate Carmelo Anthony. Everyone here told me I was wrong to say it was a bad idea, and that it would suck. They told me I was dumb. I said, "how long have you watched basketball?" and was mostly met with rolling eyeballs.

Fuck everyone here.

Hasn't PG been the worst of the lot, with a net +/- of like 24 for the whole season? And you prolly shouldn't believe anything your people tell. One of the better hot taeks I saw today was that Billy should sit Melo and PG after the first 2 or 3 minutes, so Russ can do Russ and Melo and PG can run the deeply untalented bench unit.

Nah PG passes the ball, and PG plays harder defense. Most of the stagantion in our offense is the result of a certain someone getting a pass, dribbling, jabstepping 4 times, then chucking a Landry Fields.

He was pretty much garbage in the NBA. Guys like MarShon, Jordan Crawford and Jimmer thrive in China because all they know how to do is score and the defense over there is pathetic.
