Can we form an anti-Warriors coalition? Kyrie/Kawhi/Lebron/AD/Embiid with CP3/Harden/PG3/Giannis/Gobert off the bench, maybe?
I'm bitter.

Either Cousins will be great or he will be hurt most of the season.


He likely won't be healthy enough to even play until March or April. His career is likely just about over.

Now, what good does it do for anybody -- you, the blog, etc. -- when you just start making stuff up?

Calm down itís a guess.

When you say something is "likely" that is a fabrication, it doesn't add a lot to the conversation.

Well it is likely considering the history of players who have had their achielles torn.

This literally might be one of the best Cs team ever and they will not win a title. Hate to be that guy but I am rooting for injuries to rip through GS....and not just sprained ankles...like torn ACLs and broken bones
A lot of people seem to be conceding the title when we haven't even seen a full strength Celtics team play yet.  Many seem to be forgetting how good Hayward and Kyrie are.  I'll still like the Celtics chances assuming Hayward comes back healthy.

True, but Boston's gotta stay healthy, which they really haven't been able to do well for a decade.

Iím with you.  I look forward to challenging the West next year.  The Celtics will be [dang] good next year and have a good chance of being in the finals.  Bring it.

So howard is still available?



Jk. I could care less. But this effectively ends all Howard to GSW rumors.

I mean, I think the prevailing opinion is him returning February or January at the earliest, so is this really that much of a stretch?

Do you really expect a 280 lb basketball player who relied on his unusual mobility for his size to be the same player after rupturing his Achilles? And if any team would bring him along as slow as possible, itís GS, who objectively doesnít need him.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

He didn't say that, he said you're fabricating his recovery timetable

There's only been like 1 player that ever from this injury

I just don't see him coming back as the same player. I don't see it as a career ender, but he will be less than what he was.

Achilles ruptures are brutal for the common person, but a 7foot basketball well over 200 lbs? He's got a good enough skillset to adapt, but his mobility and deftness at his size is what made him really special. Those aspects of his game are going to be significantly compromised.

I absolutely would take a look at Howard. Had a decent year last year. Try to out big the Warriors.

Severity of injury determines prognosis.

1 year MLE for Howard makes sense. He said he would take less to go to a team that had a chance.

Exactly what Iím saying... Howard would be a useful 6 fouls vs the Warriors
