R.I.P. guy
he was truly great - a perpetual motion machine - he just ran and ran and ran and ran
Celts would never have gotten all those championships with out him - I feel sad - I really admired the guy

I "hated" Hondo. Guy just did everything right. He stumbled into open shots, somehow ended with with loose rebounds and had every foul call go his way. We hates him.
Rest in Peace.

I see the NFL draft is underway
The funniest thing about the draft is how sports reporters rate how well teams drafted
WTF
Nobody knows how well a team drafted till about 5 years down the road

How old are you? Hondo was around for about ten years before I saw him.
Did you see George Mikan play? I saw Bob Cousey come off the bench when he was player coach for the Royals one game.

I remember Hondo
1976 NBA Finals
Celtics vs Suns
Game 5 OT. One of the best basketball games I have ever seen in my life

Sure, but he, Lucas and Knight played together decades before that.

R.I.P John Havlicek.

Daniel Jones, Duke QB, selected by the Giants as the 6th pick of the draft? ??? NYC newspapers will be roasting the Giants.
Sometimes, people are just a bottomless mystery. And, after all, this is just a sh*tty little forum in the sun-less backwaters of the online world.

I don't know the stats or the market, but there was a time when Eli was just Peyton's younger, less-talented brother. Takes a few years to develop - maybe they know what his true potential is.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Why roast
This might br a great pick. Could be a bust.

What were the initial reports when Tom Brady was drafted??????????
