    Im a 6.7 Big-man that luv to watch teams that coach their front-court BIGS to win games ...
    All the best NBA big-men coaches are unemployed!
    The NBA teams shrunk down to small-ball coaching .. look how weak the western conference has been playing b.ball without having the league top 10 front-court big-men teams.

    Every Houston Rocket game has looked PHONEEY all season .. Dwight Howard plays above the rim ball, plus box-out well, yet receive one alley-oop dunk every other game .. six Rocket players get more shot attempts than Dwight Howard every game. It was Dwight Howard many alley-oop dunks to outscore Clippers D.Andre Jordan in a series last season to take the Rockets to the WCF.

    The Memphis Grizz without their offseason big contract center Gasol looks like a team that will get knocked out of the playoff in the first round.

    The Portland Blazers without Aldridge n Rolo to go with Plumlee in the frontcourt rotation also look like they will be knocked out in the first round.

    The NBA #1 all-around PG Westbrook vs the NBA #1 all-around PG Chris Paul will show excitement in the playoff, but no one knows how Blake Griffin will come back from his season layoff.

    So everyone is guessing Western conference Finals will be the match-up of Warriors vs Spurs ???

    Will give the easy Eastern Conference playoff to Finals match-up later on Cavs vs Raptors ......

    Last night the Toronto Raptors 22 pt lead through first 3 quarters of the game vs the Atlanta Hawks was a Blow-out!
    The Raptors made it official last night that they are the only team in the East with the capabilities of beating the Cavs in a series

    D'Angelo Russell n Nick Young controversal subject ..
    The reason why i dont look at Kobe Bryant as a team captain or team leader or lockerroom leader
    Kobe did nothing the past 5 years to bring the Lakers players together as a team .. Kobe did do a lot to bring division to the Lakers players the past 5 season

    Weird story. I thought the Lakers young core had started to gel a little bit and was just waiting for Kobe to just retire already. Obviously not.

    The Atlanta Hawks Loss to the East top two teams this week .. Raptors n Cavs
    Teague had some great 4th quarter performance in both losses
    Its looking like the ECF show .. Raptors vs Cavs

    I still dont want to believe Isiaah Thomas were the last 2nd round pick (60th) in 2011 draft class
    This week Boston Celtricks West coast road trip put on a great defensive show on 3 playoff teams
    1) CP3 Clippers
    2) Lillard Blazers
    3) Curry Warriors
    The Boston Celtricks pull off the April-Fools .. being the first team to beat the championship Warriors in GS

    Should the Chicago Bulls get on their knees to plead to coach Thibs into taking his job back LMAO

    Congrats to the Celtics for pulling off the shocker of beating the Warriors at Oracle to end their 54 win streak. Ironic that it was the Celtics whose 85-86 Celts team who were the closest to go undefeated at home with a 40-1 record that ended their streak.

    No team has gone undefeated at home in an NBA season, let's see if the Spurs can pull off what may be a record that will never be achieved again.

    Great win at GS but the Clips and Blazers beat the Celts scoring over 110 pts in both games, how is that a great D?

    The Celtics have done so many things right in their very quick re-build. Hoarded 1st round picks. Made a smart trade to get a now All-Star PG. They're part of that ridiculously close block of 4 teams that are basically dead even for ranks 3 through 6 in the East.

    Now, the interesting part will be if they can attract a top tier free agent or swing a trade for a top player with all those 1st round picks. My guess is that it is probably still very unlikely just due to the nature of the NBA at this point.

    The Celtricks inside-outside n transition defense has been matching-up with the same type of defense coach Doc Rivers n coach Thibs use to win a championship in Boston. Doc Rivers outsmart the Celtricks by running a fast 11 man transition rotation to out score the Celtricks in every quarter by never giving the Celtricks time to set up on defense.
    The Clippers got 65 pts from their bench-players.

    The Blazers could never stretch their lead on the Celtricks in all 4 quarters, the game was close throughout all 4 quarters until one minute remain in the game with Blazers holding a 2 pt lead.

    The Celtricks did not fall for the Warriors sucker move like all the Warriors opponents do by shooting as many 3-ball shots as the Warriors .. The Warriors shot 43 threes to Celtricks 23 threes .. The Celtricks tight transition defense kept causing the Warriors SSOL transition to cause turnover after turnover. The Warriors kept hosting up 3 ball shots to try to gain the lead while the Celtricks stuck to their 2 pt shooting game to force Warriors to double team n foul Isiaah Turner n Smart while Sullinger owned the offensive glass for put backs.
    The Celtricks WON by playing the old way of NBA B.Ball by having design picks n screens to score inside to get 30 FT shots.

    In the offseason the Boston Celtricks are the number 1 team that will make the most improvements through draft night and Free Agent Market.
    The Celtricks will be the team with the lowest cap-space in the post season games, plus the offseason will have a huge increase in teams cap-space that will have a lot of the top FA looking towards joining a Celtricks team that made the playoffs the past two seasons.

    That seems like a reasonable opinion, but I just have a hunch even a team completely teed up like the Celtics is going to struggle to lure a top tier free agent. If the ping pong balls bounce their way, the Celtics could end up making a huge impact on draft night either by getting a very high pick or possibly putting together a package for a blockbuster trade. Still, I think the indication from this last trade deadline was that doing all that stuff is much easier said than done.

    Never thought IT was an All-Star PG, thought he was 3rd best PG next to Dragic and Bledsoe on that Suns squad. Still have my doubts because of his size but he's looking like a great trade by Ainge.

    The name of the game is assets in the NBA and the Celtics have plenty of those so they should be able to swing plenty of deals. I thought they were in better shape cap wise, they're over the cap at 77M so if they want to attract a KD or another max player it won't be easy.

    It would be a shame not to get the record of an unbeaten season at home with only 3 games to go but this is who they play, I think they'll be resting guys and playing bench guys to get them ready for the playoffs which makes it even tougher.

    - TOR 4/2
    - GS 4/10
    - OKC 4/12

    Spurs beat the Raps 102-95, Lowry and DeRozan didn't play but it wasn't an easy win. Kawhi set a personal best scoring with 33.

    That game with GS on Apr. 10 should be epic.
