Lakers turn attention to scheduling workouts with top players

So in a way, he feels responsible for the Celtics' No. 1 pick.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens and GM Danny Ainge have carefully honed a genuine collective at TD Garden.

The 76ers' fifth annual trip to the NBA Draft Lottery ended Tuesday with a small but valuable payout.

"I think there's been a lot of discussion about that", Colangelo said at the team's training facility.

When the Celtics traded Garnett and Pierce after the duo played six seasons together and won the National Basketball Association title in 2008, they began a rebuild.

As for the Philadelphia 76ers, against whom, in Game 6 of the 1980 National Basketball Association finals, he announced himself as a dominant rookie destined for career greatness, Johnson exhaled mightily when the draft lottery spared his Los Angeles Lakers from having to surrender their top pick to Joel Embiid, the towering figure standing to his left. After having the best odds for the No. 1 pick in 1997, Boston missed out on the chance to get Tim Duncan; in 1986, the Celtics landed the No. 2 overall pick and used it on Len Bias, who died two days later of a cocaine overdose.

The 2017 Eastern Conference finals summarized in one photo.

"It's busy", Grousbeck said. The Lakers stink. They've won 27, 21, 17, and 26 games in the last four seasons. The other time was 1950 when Boston picked Chuck Share, who never played a game for the team. We don't know which Nets pick. mind you.

Yup, Boston has Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, but as this freshman said Tuesday, "I can fill up the stat sheet any way".

The league also said that they are working on gathering more information from the club, medical staff and Brady himself. Gisele Bundchen has a whole life planned out with husband Tom Brady, but concussions are starting to worry her.

"It was just a "Wow, ' like, "OK", James said Wednesday before the Cavs" shootaround at TD Garden when asked about Celtics winning the No. 1 pick.

Not only that, but they would have had to trade their 2019 first-round pick to Orlando if that happened, so Johnson was all smiles even after finishing behind the rival Celtics.

"I think we have a good chance of taking that pick", he said, leading Johnson to turn and exclaim, "Wait, what?" Los Angeles secured the second overall pick. "We interviewed Markelle Fultz at the combine last week".

The Philadelphia 76ers could do a few different things with the third overall pick in the draft, and most of the options they have would still benefit the team greatly. They are a team in the purest sense, hence why role players like Kelly Olynyk are able to make series-defining contributions.

Ainge said the lottery victory, coupled with the team's playoff run, vindicates his decision to hold onto the pick rather than use it as a bargaining chip at the trade deadline. You know what? We don't even need the envelopes. It's hard for me to be patient.

For more than two decades, the ping-pong balls have defied the Celtics.

The NBA Draft Lottery was great to the Sacramento Kings this season.

The three men evoked cherished images for those old enough to remember or witness the 1960s spectacles of Bill Russell (Boston) versus Wilt Chamberlain (Philadelphia) and of John Havlicek (Boston) stealing the inbounds pass by Hal Greer (Philadelphia) to ice the 1965 conference finals, with Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, as usual, awaiting the Celtics out west.

This was the high-wire act Johnson and the Lakers were walking Tuesday night: keep two draft picks, and gain a player to add to a struggling rebuilding effort for next season, or lose two and go into the offseason with only a late first-round pick to try to improve a young core that Los Angeles is hoping can lure Paul George or another big-name free agent in 2018.
