I say WAS wins fewer games, and UCLA goes to the Final 4, at least.

Fultz had no top notch team mates, while Ball has three who might be first round picks.  I don't buy into this "leading his team" crap

The question about winning and Fultz is that his teams have never won.
Not in HS.
Not on his AAU team.
Not in college.
Does he make players better or is he a volume scorer because of the amount of shots he takes when his team is down double digits?
In the 13 seasons before Fultz went to Washington, they never won less than 16 games and averaged 21.4 wins per season in those 13 seasons.
Last year Washington won only 9 games.
Is this a concern for Boston or other teams?
We will find out next week.
My guess is this won't be a big concern.
If Boston does not draft Fultz, I don't think it will be because of his college W/L record.


you sure sounded like you knew your shit right here....maybe you should do some research before you make such definitive statements

I was 100% correct about Washington's record in the 13 years before Fultz went to Washington and his 1 season at Washington.
I was not correct about his senior year in HS.

It's not his fault the Lorenzo Romar couldn't get anyone else to play in WAS. If Ball went there, to WAS, are you really saying they would have made the tourney?

Washington always seemed to have good players.
Michael Porter Jr. committed to Washington but decommitted after Romar was fired after their 9 win season.

We have no idea what their record would have been with Ball at pg.
That's a fruitless discussion.

No, it's actually very pertinent. Ball played with at least two other kids who will be drafted in the first round. Fultz played with a bunch of nobodies. If you would answer someone's question, instead of cowardly skirting the issue, you would perhaps understand that this whole "leadership" thing is crap. Ball could not have "led" that team of nobodies to the tourney. If Ball played at WAS, we'd be questioning HIS leadership skills. And if Fultz played at UCLA, he'd be everyone's #1.

Don't think I'm alone in my opinions..........but you are!

If you read the story that started this thread, it was league executives concerns, not mine.
To me, winning and losing in HS or college are not a factor.
I judge and analyze players based on other criteria.

RedRuss/Hedley, you were an opinionated know it all and a very divisive person on BDC and the Boston Home Court website.
Now you are here. Great...
It was good here while it lasted...

Thanks, I'm enjoying my time here.
I only fight with delusional lakers fans, here, there and everywhere.
You are clearly unhappy we have the #1 pick, whilst you have #2, and you are clearly trying to convince yourself and all of us that Ball, or whoever you take, will end up better than Fultz.
I have not heard of any of your other criteria, other than quoting the article at the beginning of this thread. And, by the way, I was not the first to call you out on this thread for making stuff up...............

I think we need to calm down a bit and stop using heavily loaded adjectives.

Thank you,

Good luck with your time here Red.
You are too filled with anger and too close minded to have daily "conversations" with you.
You have a long, well documented history of bullying.
You can take my spot here on Sam's Forum.
This is no longer worth it.

Cowens,

Everybody thinks that the other guy "has it coming to him", that's why they give it to them, but we've all seen things start spiraling out of control very quickly, with threads getting shut down which means everybody loses, because some little spitball fight between a few people who think the other guy "had it coming to them" escalates to pistols at dawn just because of an overly connotative word or two.

If we conduct ourselves as if we were sitting across the table from each other this works like a charm because we're all reasonably intelligent, reasonably polite individuals who realize you can catch more birds with honey than with vinegar.

Cowens,

1. Reread the posts on this page.

2. You are making assumptions, some or all of which may not be correct.

It's just a feeling.  I have been looking for reports of the Celtics bringing in players to work out for them and I'm not seeing them.  No reports of Jackson being brought in for a workout like Fultz was, no reports of Tatum being brought in, nor Fox, nor Monk.  Dennis Smith was brought in on 6/7 but, interestingly, there has been zero press coverage of that visit and workout and Jonathon Isaac was worked out.  Unless Danny trades down I do not see him taking either Smith or Isaac with #1.  So, there really is no evidence of disenchantment in Fultz nor excitement about someone else for me to base this opinion on.

Maybe I'm just being too much of a cynic.  The lack of obvious workouts is unusual for Danny and Brad.  I realize they've never been in this situation before, where they DON'T have to make a choice based upon who is left on the board when they pick and that makes it easier.  I've just been watching Danny for so many years.  I've seen how he is.  It's like how, just before an attack, all communication chatter stops.  When Danny stops talking about players and trades that's when something always seems to be in the works and he did make a point of saying that he has been watching all of these top players since AAU and High School.  

Philly told Ben Simmons before the draft last year he was going to be #1.  The presumptive #1 picks often get the word in advance precisely because it's a no-brainer.  Danny hasn't said bupkiss to Fultz.  In fact, Fultz is saying the exact opposite, he said Danny told him nothing is promised and he has to earn it.  I know, that could mean a lot of things or be nothing at all, but what it was not was an embrace of the inevitable, not even after Fultz completed his workout.

Just me, worrying.

I can see that this thread has stimulated a lot of interesting comments but I will agree with Bob on this as we are very close to crossing the line.

Look, we all have different opinions about basketball.  That is a good thing.  

But put on your big boy pants.  If anyone comes with weak stuff it will be rejected.  At the same time we are here to enlighten each other and to do so in a way that is not offensive to the person that needs to be enlightened.

We all need to be enlightened from time to time.

If you are a Celtics fan the most important thing is to enjoy watching the team play.  That is the essence of being a Celtics fan.  Always hoping for a better tomorrow.  Wanting another banner.  Supporting the team.

Gitters are understandable for Celtis fans.

This is historic.  The Celts coming off of a very good year are sitting atop of the NBA draft.
