    This is interesting on Jaylen Brown. Knew he was a smart dude. Didn’t know all this though - https://www.instagram.com/p/C8Xbq7LR...1mb2g1cXVhdA==

    None. For serial. Everyone important is under contract, and if Kornet and Tillman will sign for the minimum, keep them.

    I've seen that before but only on social media so no idea if it is all true.

    Not knocking the guy and I'm sure he's smart but some of that stuff is a little exaggerated. He took a cultural sports education class at Cal. The idea that he enrolled in a bunch of masters level courses is complete horse shit and not even allowed (I went there and have friends who are professors currently). There are many "grad student level" courses not in the general curriculum. It's just how they classify them. I took one studying the films of the Coen Brothers - I guess I'm a genius now.

    Is there a good page for that? This one seems dated: https://www.spotrac.com/nba/boston-celtics/contracts

    yeah, that one isn't correct. This one seems correct based on what I know: https://www.basketball-reference.com/contracts/BOS.html

    I wonder if the Celtics flip back into the second round as second round contracts don’t count toward the luxury tax. Team seems pretty set.

    The Jaylen Brown stuff is accurate but misleading. I used to run an AI ethics education research project and have collaborated with a number of Media Lab folks. The talks he gave at MIT and Harvard were about algorithmic bias. Jaylen wasn't teaching computing or engineering. He was talking about the consequences of racist AI. He isn't an expert on this topic, but he certainly understands it well and is someone who can talk about it in a way that makes young nerds listen. Jaylen is a smart guy with social conscience. There is no need to make him out to be some sort of mad scientist.

    First round pick traded from Philadelphia. Excellent wing defender with athleticism, but a developing offensive game. Philadelphia was looking to clear cap space and Celtics took advantage. He should get regular minutes next year.


    Hauser signed as an undrafted free agent and thus why the low salary.

    Still ain't right. Hauser came off the bench before even Pritchard in some of the finals. 6th man in the house!

    Brady did get this knock all the time. "The Patriots play in the AFC East against terrible teams like the Jets and Dolphins giving them a easy path to a great regular season record and byes for the first round of the playoffs". The thing is the Pats beat everyone from every conference the same way. It was just that the Pats were so much better than everyone else. Same thing we saw with the Celtics this year.

    What does Brad Stevens do with D White and Big Al after next season? Two integral pieces of the team. It would suck to lose whatever amount of basketball Al wants to play with the remainder of his career. I not sure he's ready for a veteran minimum paycheck. And White will presumably want more money. Luxury taxes?

    White is eligible for an extension on July 1. I suspect they'll get that done this summer.

    Oh the Celtics will be paying a lot of luxury tax. Back-to-back seasons with record breaking contract extensions (brown and Tatum). Plus Jrue and KP both will be making around $30 mil/yr.

    But if you are able to win multiple titles, it’s probably worth it

    I think Horford will retire or take on a substantially reduce paycheck to be a roll player off the bench. Nothing left for him to achieve now other than enjoying the ride.

    He already announced he’s returning for next year

    Right, under his current contract and that is great news. We're talking about the following year.

    He was supposed to be an off the bench player this year. Pretty nice to have Horford as a 6th man. And then KP got injured and Al stepped up big league. He deserves his ring.

    With KP's injury history, Brad knew they needed to keep Al around as a backup.

    JJ Reddick as the Lakers' new head coach?

    So Bron's podcast partner is the new lead man in LA? Guess we can pencil in Bronny with the 17th pick in the draft and LeBron retiring as a Laker.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Caruso for Giddey, first trade of the new season.

    Good trade for both teams, IMO.
