  1. This black guy is out of his mind by saying the Celtics don't need Butler because they made it all the way to the Conference Final…. DUDE, did you watch the CELTICS/CAVS series? Did you see the gap between the two teams. There's no way this Celtics team will get past the Cavs next year without Butler&Hayward.

  2. No,celts didnt blow it….during in season trade deadline they wanted this years #1,next year nets #1 and last years number 3 pick and crowder….so why should they talk to them again?

  3. Whenever a team trades with the Celtics they instantly jack up the prices so they can get the "most" out of them. This is why all these trades with the Celtics get blown out of proportion and Danny never agrees.

  4. Williams is that white Friend u carry to the hood and he learns 2 or 3 slangs and go's to every other hood saying it thinking he's cool with all the Hood people 😂😂🤣

  5. What the hell are these guys talking about?! I live in Chicago and am a big Bulls fan. Jimmy Butler NEVER has had rumors or issues with teammates. No player has EVER talked poorly about him as a teammate. In fact, it's always the opposite! These so call "analyts" don't know anything! Jimmy Butler has been a great teammate and player because he always gives it his all on both ends. You may say, well I don't know anything either about what goes on in a locker room. You would be correct. BUT in the NBA and sports whenever there is a bad teammate, it comes out easily to the press. Jimmy Butler was loved by the teammates and the fans because he is a top 10 player and a top 5 two-way player in the NBA. Look at the the statistics that prove that. I'm sad to see him go but I wish him the best. John Paxon and our GM Gar Forman need to get fired.

  6. Why should he be fired? He is making the very obvious observation in that Chicago hosed themselves by dealing Butler to Minnesota and getting an injured player, plus another that shot 28% from the field! Plus Lavine is going to leave Chicago once he clears the injury reserve protocol! He is an announcer and not just a "white" guy expressing his observation!

  7. Ainge wants players like Love, Olynyk, Zeller, Gordon Hayward, Jerebko, Scalibrine, Aerosmith, Trump Jr., Willy Wonka,.. if you catch my drift. Ain't nobody trying to see 80's Celtics Basketball.

  8. Or… maybe they weren't entirely willing to give their best player to a competitive rival team when they could at the very least start building a young core from players out of other conferences.

  9. The Celtics are trying to build for the future; but the problem is, since they didn't make any moves that will make them stronger, even if those picks turn into good players, by the time they're ready, Isaiah and Horford will be too old so the Celtics will be minus two stars.

  10. People don't get that the Cavs and the Warriors are a lock for the next couple years. The Bulls are rebuilding because they know that even trying to be competitive doesn't get you past the Cavs.

  11. If im Boston i wouldnt have even entertained the idea for Jimmy. What does Jimmy do for the Celtics? At best he makes them the 2nd best team in the league so trading future assets that can turn into stars doesnt make any sense.
