Boston (50-32) won a tiebreaker with San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Portland; San Antonio then won a tie-breaker with Oklahoma City and Portland
Well #19 is better than #22 and I much prefer the Celtics to draft before the Spurs as Pop usually knows what he's doing. Don't care about what position the draftee plays, just pick the best player available Danny. Hopefully we don't end up with a Marcus Banks, Gerald Green, Gabe Pruitt, or J.R. Giddens type, or trade the pick for Sebastian Telfair.

Interesting Celtics Draft Fact: Danny Ainge's two best draftees, Al Jefferson and Rajon Rondo, were each offered to Seattle/OKC at different times for Robert Swift. As the old adage goes, "Sometimes the best trades are the ones that are not made, because the other GM was dumber than you." I think that's the adage...

A solid player should be available at #19. I haven't researched the draft much (ok at all) yet, but we'll have a ton of stuff on the draft in June. Well actually, we'll probably start not too far after the Celtics season ends. And no TB, you can not use the "Well then we're starting in a week" joke. Anyone have any guys they realistically hope will drop to #19?

    Geez 11 teams picking after Boston. What a lovely regular season. I would've bet my car that there wouldn't be 11 teams picking after the Celtics this year.

    And the draft is so overrated nowadays- there's no player that'll make any kind of impact at that spot. Free agency's much more important.

    Now that I think of it the draft hasn't been good since like 1998, except for 2003 lol

    And the Celtics winning that tiebreaker with San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Portland- that's like one of the only things the Celtics have won since Christmas lol...

    There are plenty of quality NBA players picked 19 and up. Even in the last few years. Just have to pick the right guy. I don't want to see someone very good fall to us, but Danny chooses someone out of left field. This would of course be followed by Danny saying they actually had him in their top 10 on their draft board and all the Danny fan boys get excited.

    After all Rondo, Finley and Robinson were all picked at #21. All by Phoenix Suns - what a coincidence!

    the celts need a super strong power foward someone who could move inside if needed but agile enough to take defenders off the dribble or step back and shoot a 15 footer, you know a basketball player with skills.

    I'd like to see the Celtics take a solid backup point guard if there's one available.

    Also, last time the Celtics had the 19th pick in the draft, they took Acie Earl. Hopefully they do better this time...

    Would love to see us go with Solomon Alabi out of Fla St. a 7-1 agile shot blocker would be a great addition to this team
