Utah is a really tough matchup.
Won’t be surprised if this is an L for the Green.

no question! if we could only steal one of either hayward or gobert

Big fan of Gobert

My eyes are on Gordon Hayward tonight
I see so many people on here clamoring for him
I think he is overrated and NOT a superstar or a max contract player and I DO NOT want him in green

Do you differentiate between
a “max contract player” and a player who is going to get a max contract?
by Castiron on Jan 3, 2017 | 7:38 PM
Of course I do
And I do not want to give a max contract to a player who isn’t a max contract player again in back to back offseasons
by GTR216 on Jan 3, 2017 | 7:39 PM
I think I can agree with that
While Hayward isn’t what I would call a “max contract player”, he’s definitely getting the max.
by Castiron on Jan 3, 2017 | 7:41 PM
Max contract players are this point are stars not super stars.
There are 50 guys or so in the NBA who could be called max contract guys, and 10 or so super stars. So the argument with him becomes a) is he one of those top 50 guys (probably) and b) is he the top 50 guy that in addition to trade/picks/player develoPMent moves the needle towards winning a title (less likely). C’s have room for one more max contract and then bird rights and MLE guys. If Hayword or someone else is that guy, the C’s sign him and Wyc is probably willing to blow way past the cap on bird rights for IT/AB/Smart and co. If hes not things get more complicated.

It just sucks to think we might blow a lot of money on non superstars like Hayward just as we did with Horford
by GTR216 on Jan 3, 2017 | 7:41 PM
Hayward looking good tonight
by Castiron on Jan 3, 2017 | 7:55 PM
both teams have forgotten how to basketball
by jaaaaasper on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:02 PM
Have we had one too many days off or something?
Wake up guys!!!
by GTR216 on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:02 PM
brad stevens looked so pissed
by carl schmitt on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:03 PM
Diaw annoys me
by Castiron on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:15 PM
Diaw is like the guy at the local Ymca
He doesn’t look like he got game and then you play and he’s balling.
He’s passing to cutters from the post, boxing out, talking on defense, and always got a knee sleeve lol

Looks like Hayward and Jerebko have the same barber.
by clover on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:27 PM
Let’s not defend Gobert, guys
by Castiron on Jan 3, 2017 | 8:29 PM
Not sure I like Hayward as a max signing
I know he’ll get a max offer from Utah. But he lacks the explosiveness of the high-level players. I’m fine if we pass on him.

Great ball movement tonight.
IT and Smart getting everyone involved.
by GreenCeltics on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:08 PM
they’ve made this vaunted Jazz defense look foolish
by Skeptical Dawg on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:11 PM
Watch out kellys in!!!
by Boston4Eva on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:00 PM
Poor Utah. They still had a chance before that. Now…
by BHCELTICS on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:24 PM
They let them right back in the game!!
by Celticgreen18 on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:29 PM
Joe Johnson is killing us!!
by Celticgreen18 on Jan 3, 2017 | 9:34 PM
Big Time shots by Horford
Meanwhile Joe Johnson killing us as always
