Boston's recent uninspired loss to the Embiid-less 76ers (google his finger injury if you like large acute angles) suggests the Celtics need a change.  They've already overachieved with both Tatum and Brown blossoming All Star-ish 20+ PPG stats, Hayward's flashes of his pre-injury self (though not lately), Kanter having the 12th best league PER and Kemba Walker doing a decent drama free Kyrie Irving impersonation but the Celtics are unlikely to get by the best teams in May and June without a true center / more inside defensive presence.  The price of admission is probably giving up on Hayward (they don't need him with Brown and Tatum already there), another "bench player to be named later' plus some sort of first rounder (I'd hope their own as opposed to Memphis's). The dream is to get 27 y.o. Drummond who syncs perfectly age-wise but I'm guessing Detroit will want more (Marcus Smart) than Boston wants to let go.  The fear is Boston stands pat or settles on Danilo Galinari or Davis Bertrans, two big-ishes capable of scoring but adding very little defensively.

Funny interview. The Knicks fan makes a half-court shot
during half-time and all he gets is $1,000....in $5
scratch off tickets. He ended up with only $500, silver
dust all over the place and carpal tunnel. This is why I
hate the Knicks.

Pretty embarrassing for an owner of a team pegged at a $3.6 bill valuation by Forbes 2 years ago.  The Lakers pay $100K and Jeanie Buss lavishly rewards people who are loyal to the organization by treating them to oversized contracts like Kobe who got an unexpectedly huge payday late after he gave his knees and body to LA for 19 years.  Jimmy Dolan gives out 1/100th that much in scratchers and is a pound foolish buffoon who punishes people loyal to the organization like Charles Oakley who gave his body to the Knicks for ten seasons and got treated to expulsion and banishment.
