@CelticsLife Young talented team, solid bench, an all-star point guard, cap space to sign another free agent max deal with his deal.— Nick Beard (@nbeard22) June 27, 2016
@CelticsLife 48 win team that was the youngest in the playoffs, ability to win now and sustain success for years, can sign another max— Josh (@JRatcliff34) June 27, 2016
Along the lines of sustainable success, here's what ESPN Insider Kevin Pelton wrote today:

The stable coach/GM scenario is big:
@CelticsLife Elite defense already in place, space for 1 more max, ability to have two more top 5 picks in deep drafts, stable coach and GM— John Carpenter (@John_Carpenter1) June 27, 2016
Some fans are a bit down on Danny Ainge at the moment following the draft, but the coach got a lot of hype:

Play for a banner. All the glory can be yours. You look good in green! #Celtics #micropoetry
A little creepy:
@CelticsLife if @KDTrey5 comes to boston, I'll get his name and number tatted on my back where it would be on his jersey..— Zach Blochlinger™ (@zachblochlinger) June 28, 2016
The mock LeBron approach:
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 not 3... not 4.. not 5... not 6... not 7... not 8... not 9... not 10... not 11... not 12... not 13... not 14... not 15— Matt Piazzi (@thepiazzifacts) June 27, 2016
That one was missing 16, 17 and 18, but this one finished the alley-oop:

1. Everybody looks better in green
2. Be a part of BBall greatest Franchise
3. Our PG will actually pass to you.
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 if you join any other team you'll be #2. (Ex: DWade will always run Miami). Your legacy can't be built anywhere else.— Omar Khan (@5lumdog) June 27, 2016
I think this one is huge. Durant is never going to be the best he can possibly be alongside Russell Westbrook. There are just too many possessions where he never sees the ball. The Warriors already have Steph (and Klay and Draymond), the Clippers have CP3 (they probably have to trade Blake to get KD), San Antonio has Kawhi and Miami has Wade. Boston is the place with the best chance to get the most out of Durant without him being in anyone else's shadow.
The Legal Sea Foods approach: This guy's farm better be unreal.

In case KD has the same values as my mom:

Any chance I can to include this Pierce video:

Durant would have to be pretty cold to turn this down:
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 - the family of Reggie Lewis approached the @celtics organization regarding un-retiring jersey no. 35 #bleedgreen— SURGDissection (@SURGDissection) June 27, 2016
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 Ask Russ to unretire #6. Let KD wear it. Raise a special lone banner "Bill Russell 11/13" in a special ceremony.— Van Costa (@VanCosta5) June 27, 2016
Interesting thought, but obviously requires the above above Lewis plan first:
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 Larry bird was #33, Paul Pierce was #34, it's only right if the next Celtic legend is #35— Jacob Daily (@Jdaily14) June 27, 2016
Solid history of forwards named Kevin--McHale, Garnett, Gamble (OK, too far).
@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 It's worked out for a couple of well known Kevins (Garnett, McHale). They've got the hardware to prove it.— Kristian W. (@kristianwong) June 27, 2016
Speaking of legends, I want Russell in the room for sure for this July 1 meeting in NYC. Bill Walton telling Bird stories might help too:
@CelticsLife Ainge tells Durant "if you sign this paper, 20yrs from now, you can be sitting there..." Danny points to Russell..— Seraphique Vox (@SeraphiqueVox) June 27, 2016

@CelticsLife @KDTrey5 Have Bill, KG, McHale and Pierce in the room tell him stories then have Isaiah and Brown come in with his jersey.— Justice Dickey (@PreelectJustice) June 27, 2016
@CelticsLife the fans chanted (Let's go Celtics) for the final 5 minutes of a game that was over.— Josh (@JRatcliff34) June 27, 2016
@CelticsLife over do it, talk about the city and the fans and what the atmosphere is like, would also show him the clip vs MIA down 20 when— Josh (@JRatcliff34) June 27, 2016

For the record, I know grammatically the title should contain the word "fewer" instead of "less," but it just didn't sound right.
