The best part about all of this is that the Celtics will have a lottery pick next year, too.

Personally, as a Knick fan I'm not distraught with the 8th pick.... i figured it would be 7th or 8th. We'll still shake out a decent player to help at the guard position. Have to laugh at the Celtic fans taking a poke by thinking Jax would ship out KP for the 1st rounder. He's proved his worth in NY; won't be going anywhere soon.

You act like the #1 pick in the draft is a joke offer. Meanwhile the man running the team has publicly questioned whether or not Porzingis can be the centerpiece of the rebuild. The disconnect is a bit strange.

...That doesn't sound like a bad deal for either team. Knicks don't really have a reason to do that, but if they wanna blow everything up and start from scratch it would be ideal. Maybe **** around and get the Nets 2018 pick too.

You're full of crap with your imaginary persona. I'm not upset, so I act like it's not important? So I'm supposed to believe that NY can duck the odds and win the first pick, and then wring my hands and cry when we get what we were supposed to, a 7th or 8th? The man running the team has been fvcking with the media since day 1, and I have to respond to every verse. Who's the one with disconnect here?

It's posters like you that stink this place up. Enjoy being swept in 4, pal.

People act like they have seen enough of KP to gamble on trading him for an unknown. The draft may be deep, but no one knows who will rise to NBA standards. Think Hubie Brown would agree? Sure, we'll give the Celtics everything they want like Brooklyn. Sure thing.

I'm looking forward to the draft, to see the Celtics draft Fultz, and to see Knicks fans boo their pick like they do every single year without exception.

Don't even know where this is coming from. I realize that your actual "point" was weak and easily argued, but going even further off-track with whatever this is about doesn't make what your're saying anymore intelligent.

Again: I am talking about the established #1 pick in the draft that Celtics just got in the lottery on Tuesday. Google it.

So we should disregard anything that PJ actually says and just listen to you? Nah.

The Celtics exceeded all expectations I had for them this season. Can't say the same for NY...but mabe you would. Sorry I destroyed the forum.

I hate to say it but do you really give Bradley the max contract? i mean he is clearly the best defender for Celts however drafting fultz will limit both fultz growth and Bradley's playing time. Unless they say good bye to thomas which is unlikely.

I think Boston would rather go for Hayward than pay Bradley. But if they trade the pick then i think Bradley and smart would stay.

I dont understand why people say ingram is a bust, dude is young and its not like everyone is born like lebron who can dominate right away but i think ingram's ceiling is higher than Wiggins.

Wiggins has never impressed me much. I liked what I saw from Ingram. He needs to mature physically and hit shots which is supposed to be something he can do.
