Celtics are projected to have 2 of the top three draft picks in the '18 Draft?

How?

Do both picks belong to lottery teams? (I know the Nets pick belongs to Boston.)

Sixers are projected to own at least a top 5 pick, but I believe Sixers are playoff bound, so that's a mute point.
The Porzingis blessing is real.

Ainge is gonna go down as a genius. Either he upgrades with tbose picks for someone on the AD/Cousins level or they get all those picks and have a draft party.

hes dont well getting picks

but he hasnt landed any franchise players with these lottery picks over the last couple years.

Its not just having the picks but more of what you do with them.

but what he lacks in draft he's dont well with coaching hires/signing free agents

ainge has done a pretty good job of getting long, athletic swings. jaylen and tatum look pretty good, that kid that got from smu was killer in sl. now kyrie needs to show he's an upgrade over thomas and not go iso crazy. i think they will miss crowder and bradley's defensive intensity. smart needs to step up his game on both sides of the ball. they should definitely sign bogut as a reserve, they'll need his toughness in the postseason. with so many new faces, finding the chemistry will be a challenge.

Just looked at a few mock drafts and it seems we have to finally buy a new version of NBA live. The rookie creator is running out of names: Bruce Bowen, Jaren Jackson and Gary Trent are reentering the league next season. :P

Yeah, I knew about nbadraft.net. Believe it or not DX wasn't the best predictor of draft order. Ive always gone to nbadraft.net for thier mock, it's just that they suck at analysis. Player pages were way better on DX.

But it's that other site I like. I like the player pages

So if the Knicks can't tank hard enough for Doncic, MPJ or either of the 3 stud big men in this year's draft......our consolation prizes are Colin Sexton and Miles Bridges if we miss the playoffs?

You know......I'm kinda ok with that

Yep, way too early to panic. The 2nd rounder we got from OKC is originally from the Bulls, so it will very high; likely to get a 1st round talent that slides down the board on draft night for cheap.
