Chris Paul: The first 3 times I ever played against you we both were called for double techs…I’ll never forget what you said to me my rookie year during the jump ball to start the game in OKC(I was an awe, but you changed that real quick lol)…I’ve never hated playing against someone so much but also wanted them to be my teammate as much as you! Hate that we never got that chance but I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know as a competitor and I wish you and the the fam the best in what’s next in store in life!!! #ThankYou #BigTicket
Some Celtics fans will not want to hear this, but Isaiah Thomas, who was waived by the Clippers, is not an option. Evan Turner, who is expected to have his contract bought out by the Timberwolves, struggled in limited minutes for Atlanta this year. But he could be a good break-glass-in-case-of-emergency possibility for the Celtics if there are multiple injuries during the playoffs, because he has shown he can play well in Stevens’s system.
