[QUOTE=wayne1218;8470486]I have read many opinions and scouting reports on tacko and the upside is no doubt there. It was a flyer with zero downside if it doesnít work out[/QUOTE]

This I agree with, there's no risk in signing him as an undrafted FA, if he isn't good enough, you cut him and move on

You'll appreciate everything Horford brings to a team when he's gone, great defender, can shoot the three ball, great passer for a big man. Horford's contributions can't be measured by statistics alone, he'll definitely be missed. And if you think Baynes sucked for us, then you must not value defense as much as I do

Baynes did suck, period. Good guy, good bench guy. Certainly shouldn't be a starter in the NBA. He won no games for us and we won nothing with Horford in 4 years ... nothing. I like Al but not for the money he wanted. NO THANKS!

Everyone in the league would take Davis ... EVERYONE!

Denying his talent would be ignorant. He did get hurt a lot but many times they simply had no interest in playing him. Bol played 9 games in college and you are giving him a blowjob? Okay.

Davis only played in 56 games this season and that was by New Orleans choice. The last 2 years Davis played 75 games both seasons and no less than 61 in any other year. So yeah, a little more durable than some guy in college that played in 25% of his teams games

You talk about Davis like the guy plays 20 games a year. You are wrong about that. He is there quite often actually.

75%+ every year is pretty good. How many did Kawhi play this year? And yes 75% is a little higher than 25% for anybody wondering.

You must really think Kawhi is a joke. He missed 22 games for rest

I never said he was a starter, I said he's one of the best backups, he's too limited to be a starter

It wasn't Horford's fault we didn't win a title, using your logic Anthony Davis hasn't won anything, Kemba Walker hasn't won anything, Russ Westbrook hasn't won anything either, I can make a long list of players who haven't won anything. Maybe the Rockets should trade Harden, they haven't won anything with him either. Danny Ainge could have traded for Kawhi last year, but the cost would have been Jalen Brown, and Danny didn't want to lose Brown for potentially one year of Kawhi, if he had, maybe things would have gone different and it would have been us celebrating a title instead of Toronto. I'm not blaming Ainge, just saying there are plenty of reasons why the Celtics haven't made the finals during Horford's time in Boston, but he isn't one of them.

Not even close to the same. Horford had a lot more talent around him and he played in the east, on a team that went to the conference finals without their 2 highest paid players. Sorry but I'm not even interested in that debate. You love Al and that's great. I think they will be fine without him. And if he was there, no chance of signing a guy like Walker

They keep talking and saying Kemba should go to LA. That's why I believe nothing until he signs here

This would destroy any chance of Lakers winning it...... I don't give 2 shits about the Lakers and this is a terrible idea......


Lakers favorites for Carmelo
If Carmelo Anthony decides to return to the NBA next season, there's a good chance it will be with the Los Angeles Lakers. According to a report from Ian Begley, the Lakers are expected to be the favorites to land Anthony this summer. The veteran is clearly diminished on the court, but is a close friend of LeBron James.

I had a feeling Carmelo was going to end up in LA. I think that plan has been in place for a while now.

Apparently I'm not the only one who loves Horford's game. Here is an excerpt from an article written by Brian Windhorst.

"He might not be a superstar like some of the others in this class, but Al Horford's entry into the free-agent market [B]has sent numerous teams into a [/B]tizzy trying to get his valued services. Much like three years ago, when a number of teams rushed to offer him a max contract when he decided to leave the Atlanta Hawks, [B[B]]Horford is in such massive [/B]demand [/B]across the league that he's likely to get the four-year, $100 million-plus deal he's seeking by opting out of his deal in Boston".

That post must have got the best of you. I think you have quoted it like 3 times now. We didn't win with Al. We went to the conference finals without the top 2 paid players on the team. They came back and the team went backwards. Changes needed to be made. Al wanted out and Danny was fine with letting him go and paying someone else a max contract. I agree with Danny and I like what he is doing.

My point is, you don't seem to value him that much, you think that losing him isn't a big deal while I feel it is. It's not easy for me to get all the Celtics news I would like since I live in Miami, but I don't think Al would have left had Danny agreed to pay him what he thought he was worth, I might be wrong, but if Danny agreed to pay him 4/100 I think he stays in Boston, again I can't say this for fact, but I never once heard him say anything bad about the city or his teammates, I'm under the impression he liked playing in Boston, but at this stage of his career he's only got one more big contract left, and I think he's leaving for the money. I've posted numerous times how much faith I have in the Danny/Brad combo, and if they feel the money can be better spent elsewhere, who am I to argue, I'm just a fan with an opinion. We just have differing thoughts on how important Horford was to the team, and the article I posted let's you know there are many teams very interested in his services. Assuming we sign Kemba, we still have a massive hole at the center position, right now we have one center on the roster, Robert Williams, and we're not going to have much cap space left to sign a viable center, I have no idea who our starting center will be next year.

The team went backwards due to bad chemistry in the locker room combined with Tatum, Brown, and Rozier all having worse seasons last year than the previous one, and Hayward not playing like he did in Utah hurt as well, although it was understandable coming off that devastating injury, the step back they took had nothing to do with Horford
