Paging Tyler!

Post by vnatale » Tue Feb 23, 2021 9:13 pm

I have to admit.

Doncic IS impressive.

A 21 year old white guy who plays like that??!!

Good game, right? O0 For those who missed it, here are his highlights from tonight. Be sure to watch to the end.

Luka is amazing. And the crazy thing is that he plays like that all the time. He's a walking highlight reel who just finds ways to win.

Yes, good game. But devastating outcome for a Celtics fan! I did NOT see it coming in spite of his prior shot!

Frankly I'm a bit turned off by white basketball players. Have white people not stolen enough from the African American community but now to take their official sport as well? Basketball has been a historically African American sport and as a white person, I get disgusted when I see other whites culturally appropriating for profit.

Don't worry. The NBA has become so woke, their ratings are plummeting year-over-year. If the trend continues, there will be no more basketball to watch, and then you won't have to feel upset any longer.

I have a recurring calendar appointment at 9pm every night to research new things to be upset about. I find that it helps me sleep.

I hear that the Mavs are shopping Porzingis. My Knicks don't want that prima donna back.

He has some kind of injury as he was in street clothes on the bench for last night's game.

As the end of Thursday's Celtics postgame show Brian Scalabrine stated that Porzingis fits the profile of someone that Danny Ainge goes after. We shall see!

It does seem like Boston could use a change, but Ainge has the same reputation among other GMs as that guy in your fantasy football league who is constantly trying to offer his entire bench for your best player. Eventually everyone just tunes him out. So I have my doubts he's willing to offer anything close to what Dallas would want for KP. But as you said, we'll see.

Thanks for that non-Boston view of Ainge! I think he is great and support all he does.

I also happened to see several of his iconic moments. The first one was during the NCAA's when he got the rebound in a Brigham Young NCAA game and went coast-to-coast to put in the game winning basket.

When he and Tree Rollins got into a fight in the NBA playoff and Rollins bit Ainge's finger(s)!

Finally, all the machinations Red Auerbach went through to get the Toronto Blue Jays to release their interest in Ainge to the Celtics after Ainge had already been playing as a major league baseball player.

It looks like the answer is yes. O0

This is how I imagine most Celtics fans feel right now:

Have you guys seen Doncic's game-winning three pointer from last night? It's worth looking up. The guy is amazing.

Didn't realize we had a Luka Doncic thread on here! The Mavs absolutely have to get him a better supporting cast and soon. He and Porzingis have a great connection but Porzingis is too fragile for the long NBA season.
