Duncan is announcing his retirement!!

To me, the most underrated player of his generation. Never really got the highlights or kudos, but the guy has rings for all 5 fingers.
One of the best ever and from what i've heard a great guy. Next stop for him the HOF without question.

Such a fresh air he has been compared to most guys. What a career.

The 99 finals ... Knicks never had a chance... and he was only a rookie.

Top 15 player ever... At worst.

Also I LOVED KVH coming out of Utah. I thought the Spurs were crazy not to draft him.

Oops.

The Celtics had 2 lottery picks the year Duncan came out, but they ended up with the 3rd and 6th picks. Ping pong balls were unkind. The Rick Pitino era did not get off to a great start, and it wasn't a very fun ride while it lasted. Oh what could have been if the ping pong balls bounced their way that night.

True, but their dominance was before my time. I didn't really get to witness vintage Larry Bird. I saw a lot of Larry laying down on the sidelines to preserve his aching back. Also the untimely deaths of both Len Bias and Reggie Lewis weren't exactly easy to take. When Paul Pierce was stabbed, I thought "not again?" Luckily he was ok and they built a championship team around him. But the Celtics did have some rough years there for sure.

There is a STRONG rumor that Westbrook will be traded to the C's for players and those Nets draft picks the C's control.

Certainly makes sense for OKC. Assuming he doesn't bolt Boston ...makes sense all around.

Could be risky for Boston though. Next years draft class is supposedly loaded, and the Nets could very well be the worst team in the NBA next year by a good margin, and I doubt they'll improve much in a few years either. Westbrook is great, but there's risk there because he could be a 1 year rental if he bolts for free agency the following year. They'd be rolling the dice that he could learn to love playing in Boston and they could entice him to stay by obtaining his Bird rights.

I've heard the C's linked to Blake Griffin and Demarcus Cousins as well. Gordon Hayward's name has also been thrown around. It wouldn't shock me at all if he joins them once he hits free agency to reunite with Brad Stevens, if not sooner.
