Sixers were inquiring about Bradley's availability at the trade deadline last Feb.
It was on the day of the trade deadline.

I think the Sixers will not be afraid of losing AB in free-agency.
The Sixers have so much money to spend this summer.
And the #5 pick will most probably be Monk, Dennis Smith, Isaac, Fox, or Markkanen.

I think AB is the better option, if you're the Sixers, than those 5 players.

Sixers are going to make a playoff push next season.
They're going to need veteran players because they have so many young and inexperienced players.

TJ,

I would say this may be a case where it's a matter of interpretation.

I didn't see him as half-speed or casual at all.  I'd say if anything he projected a high degree of confidence.  Perhaps to the point of being a little over-confident at times.  As Fierce mentioned, if there was any appearance of being casual, it's because the kid could take over as he pleased.  Confidence.  Or over-confidence.  He's 18.  That's the main issue here.  18 and without debate ready to step in and play NBA ball.  I think he'll get a lesson or two that will humble him, and probably pretty quick at that.  We all did around that age, when we thought we were hotshots.  If that's the downside to this player, I could live with it easily.

I'd be very happy with Fultz. If we land #1...

Regards

Just for the record - I'm hoping that Danny can cut a deal for an established elite player - even if it involves the Nets #1 pick.

Ainge can get creative and offer the 2018 Nets pick, but with protection.

I also want Jimmy Butler or Paul George on the Celtics next season.

I think it's time Ainge trades Crowder and Bradley.

Not a lot.

Usually, I only watch college games that feature potential lottery picks.

This season I was following Fultz, Ball, and Tatum.

Rondo's just not a good fit in Brad's system.

The NBA game has changed.
Right now teams like the Rockets and Celtics are winning games relying on 3-pointers.
For an offense like that to work, it's a must that the PG is a shooter.

Washington Huskies fans probably wished Fultz used his confidence to make his teammates better and to produce wins.
Washington had averaged over 21 wins per season over the last 13 seasons. They won 9 this year with Fultz at PG.
Fultz casual approach to the game reminds me of D'Angelo Russell. Yes, Fultz gets to the rim better than Russell does.

There have been many clear cut #1 picks over the years, such as Towns, Wiggins, A. Davis, Wall, Rose, LeBron and many others.
I don't feel this is a year with a true #1 pick.
The tryouts will determine who will go #1.
I like players with a strong motor and fire in them.
I believe Ball and Jackson have that. I don't feel Fultz or Tatum have that fire or aggression on the court.
If the Lakers are lucky enough to keep their pick this year, Ball does scare me some with the amount of drama and baggage that will come with him.

What I do like about Ball is his Rondo like intelligence on the court. I don't like his build.

Ball's build can be developed.

What I don't like about Ball is he doesn't have an in between game like Jimmy Butler or Paul George.

It's either a 3-pointer or a drive to the basket for Ball.

Ball doesn't have a pull up jumper or a mid-range game.

hey i wasn't serious, just busting your chops a little bit about the old days over there. Perhaps my memory is faulty but I though you were always into the old Rondo debates that went on and on over there.

over here the debates are more civil and about Kelly O now....LOL

I have moved on from Rondo a long time ago.

Kelly O is one of my favorite Celtic players.
I think he's a keeper if the price is right.

If you thought the Rondo debates in the old days were bad, you should visit Mployee's Celtics forum.
They will drive you nuts!
Larry Sanders is like the next Robert Parish over there.
