Celtics First Round Matchup
This has been the best season for the front office since 2007. What happened then you ask?
There are three reasons the celtics season is a success. Two of those reasons are the trades that Danny Ainge pulled off this season.
Trade 1: Celtics send Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell to the Dallas Mavericks for Jameer Nelson, Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, two draft picks, and a $12.9 million dollar trade exception.
Great deal for the celtics. They ended up getting 4 picks because they traded Brandan Wright to the Phoenix Suns for 2 more draft picks. Huge that we got rid of Rondo because he wasn't happy and we weren't happy, he just had to go.
Trade 2: Celtics trade Marcus Thornton and a 2016 first round draft pick to the Phoenix Suns for ISAIAH THOMAS.
That's exactly how I felt Isaiah.
Hands down best deal in the entire NBA this year. Colossal steal for the C's. Isaiah is the heart and soul of this team, and we got him for free basically.
Finally... The last reason why the Celtics have a serious shot of beating these little bitches from Cleveland is this man
Brad Stevens should be the coach of the year the way he got these players that no one thought were relevant to play like a legit playoff team. Yea I know Steve Kerr blah blah blah. A donkey could've coached that team to a 1 seed in the playoffs. Brad is notorious for getting the best out of guys. Remember those 8 seed Butler teams that shredded your brackets a few years back? Yea brad Stevens was the mastermind behind those Bulldog teams. That's another reason why I think the Cavs are in big trouble. Brad was given a free pass to the sweet 16... Now he's ready to make his upsets and send the Cavs packing.
Oh yea I almost forgot, ITS CLEVELAND. Cavs with 0 championships, Browns with 0 Super Bowls , the Indians with 2 championships (1920 and 1948). This city just does not know how to win.
Prediction: Celtics in 6 games
