I was already becoming enamored with Fultz, and then I saw this:

Sure sounds like the Kid was a Celtics fan, and that he wants to play here. Given that Ball grew up a Lakers fan and wants to play there, this draft could reignite on of the most storied rivalries in sports for years to come. It's almost too perfect...

He's been close with Isaiah Thomas since their workouts at Washington this summer. "I've talked to him a lot," Fultz says. And yes, the family is well aware that Boston currently has the best odds at the No. 1 pick. "We always talk about the opportunity. That would be the craziest backcourt. The way he scores, the way I can pass, and the way I can score… we can switch between the one and two."

Markelle Fultz Doubles Down On Excitement To Potentially Team With Isaiah Thomas



May 17, 2017 1:15 PM





BOSTON (CBS) — Markelle Fultz has previously spoken about how the Celtics would have the “craziest backcourt” between himself and Isaiah Thomas. Just a month later, he’s doubling down.

Fultz is now likely to be suiting up in green next season, as the former Washington guard is ascending to the top of most people’s draft boards – in some cases, there’s not even a debate. So with Fultz donning a Celtics uniform looking that much more likely, his comments about playing with Isaiah Thomas become that much more intriguing.

Speaking with Michael Felger on CSNNE’s Early Edition on Tuesday, before the NBA Draft Lottery announced the winners, Fultz spoke again about the tantalizing prospects of forming a backcourt with Isaiah in Boston.

“Me and Isaiah Thomas would be a great backcourt,” said Fultz. “I think the opportunity that would be there would be amazing, just for him to play off the ball, where I think he’s better at it, or him to play on the ball and I can play off the ball. I think the chemistry would be amazing.”

Watch Markelle Fultz’s freshman year highlights below:




Fultz echoed his own previous comments, when he spoke about the opportunities he and Thomas would present for the Celtics in terms of offense and drawing up plays.

Despite his continued remarks about the Celtics in particular, Fultz said he’s willing to do whatever is asked of him – and he just wants to win games.

“I just love the game and I think I’m versatile enough to play the 1 or the 2 [guard],” said Fultz. “Whatever a team needs me to do to win, I think I’m capable of doing that.”

One thing is clear: Fultz could step onto the court and immediately be part of a team that could win a lot of games, both immediately and for the foreseeable future.

MY NOTE:  Picture this, 3 years from now.  Still young, but with a few years of experience under them...

Ante Zizic
Guerschon Yabusele
Marcus Smart
Jaylen Brown
Markelle Fultz
Brooklyn's 2018 pick
Terry Rozier

Throw on top of that Al Horford, who will still have 1-2 years left and at least one more high quality player (could be IT, could be Gordon Hayward, etc) if not more. And that assumes Bradley and/or Crowder and/or Kelly are gone in trades or free agency.

The future is so bright on Celtics Planet I gotta wear shades...

Bob,

You may as well add Kelly to your long range rosters. He will be around for a long time.

But I'm really intrigued by the idea of Porzingis and the #8 pick for the #1 pick.

This video happens when everybody learned that the Lakers were #2, meaning we were #1.  Check out Scal and Blakely's reaction.  Then check out Draper's.

He needs to go somewhere where he actually likes and roots for the team.

I don't know where Blakely was born, but he went Syracuse and was the Detroit Pistons beat reporter for years.  Scal, of course, was a Celtic.
