Boston Celtics Daily Dish: May 20, 2014


Good morning, Boston Celtics fans, and welcome to phase two of Boston’s “Let’s Add Banner #18!” rebuilding project.

With the results of the NBA Draft Lottery being revealed tonight, everyone who follows the green and white will finally have a clear picture of where the Celtics will be picking once the NBA Draft takes place on June 26.

Make sure you tune in before the start of tonight’s Miami-Indiana game to see the results!

Now, for the daily links!

How did the Oklahoma City Thunder fare without Serge Ibaka?  Uhhhhh . . . not so good.  Maybe you should just check out the recap and video highlights of last night’s game to see for yourself.  [NBA.com]

According to the Daily Dime, the Thunder might want to invest in some aspirin, as the Spurs are going to cause headaches with their match-up advantages all series long.  [ESPN]

For those of you who wouldn’t mind seeing the Celtics draft Dante Exum, here’s a piece in which Exum likens his game to a blend of Russell Westbrook with Manu Ginobli.  [Bleacher Report]   I’d take that!

Your Morning Shootaround throws a little ice water on the rumors that Minnesota will trade Kevin Love.  [NBA]  Drat!

I know you missed ‘em, but never fear: the Charlotte Hornets are back, baby!

Ready to click through a lot of slides?  I mean, A LOT?  Have I got something for you: the top 200 players in the NBA for the 2013-2014 season!  [Bleacher Report]  Click away!
