    Smart move by Jackson.
    1. Goes to a warm climate.
    2. Gets playing time right away
    3. Didn't have to worry about whether he'd be in Boston, traded to Chicago, Indiana, New York, etc.
    4. Or maybe he stays and Boston STILL gets Hayward. Jackson is then a sub?

    This is kind of like Ball only wanting to workout for LA. Jackson knew he'd piss off Ainge and the Celtics and then likely just drop 1 spot.

    Found this quote. Apparently Phoenix was behind Jackson cancelling the workout.


    I hate Ainge, so I'm glad he got schooled. I don't know what it is about him, but every time I see his smug, pouty face, I just want to punch him in the mouth.

    We'll know if he got schooled in about 3 years.

    Handlogten's Heros was first.

    Bumping to relive the magic and hope for more Lindsey miracles.

    I was so awful in this thread.

    Bradley ended up being our 4th center, behind Gobert, Favors, and Udoh.

    I heard recently that the Jazz front office was ecstatic when they drafted Donovan and some in the front office were calling him "the next Dwayne Wade" during their celebration on draft night. They nailed the **** out of that comp.

    It was interesting to read the confusion about Tony Bradley pick. Before the draft many posters had stated they didn't like his game as a fit on the jazz.

    It has also been interesting to see how many Kuzma haters there were around here pre-draft. I’m glad for the guy. He got drafted in the first round and has WAY overplayed his draft position thus far.

    I kinda nailed it didn't I? The Knicks should've drafted DS Jr. from the start. They thought they'd hit another homerun with drafting Frankie like they did with Porzingis. lol

    You realize he wasn't the only offensive threat on the team right
