Future top NBA pick Markelle Fultz made fun of LeBron James' hairline

A 53-win conference finalist plus an All-Star forward plus the consensus top talent in the NBA Draft. "I think the opportunity that would be there would be awesome", Fultz said. "He was on the phone with everybody from coast-to-coast, and he was offering everybody". It will probably cost Boston a $180 million contract to keep Isaiah Thomas in the 2018 offseason, and Fultz gives them a replacement at point guard if they decide to let their leading scorer walk.

DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, Md.) is historically one of the more prolific basketball powers in the country, and Mike Jones has been at the program's helm for the last 15 years.

Prior to Wednesday's shootaround, LeBron spoke about the Celtics getting the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and whether it should have an effect on the crowd for Game 1.

Boston now faces an interesting decision regarding whether or not to give Thomas a max contract extension.

The Boston Celtics' rumors are heating up just days after the team secured the No. 1 overall pick via the NBA's Draft Lottery. The Lakers can be as good as they want to be after next season. Thomas also becomes a free agent in 2018 and will likely demand max money.

"They need shooting desperately on that team and that's why I think J.J. Redick from the Clippers is a significant target for them". Now that the Celtics officially have that pick, it gives them much more leverage to pull off a deal. "If you can get a really good guy with this pick, you've got him".

Redick would obviously be a great fit here in Philly next to Ben Simmons. In Steven's high screen-and-roll offense, Thomas absolutely thrives as the primary ball handler.

And like Woj said, the veteran leadership thing. The Celtics' own the Nets' first-round pick next year, too, and barring a rapid revival in Brooklyn, that could be the No. 1 again.

Not many people are picking the Celtics to defeat the defending champion Cavaliers, but it doesn't really matter because the Celtics future is so bright. It would be ironic if he joined a core of players that are a product of the Sixers rebuilding efforts. "It's one game. They took care of business, and we've just got to take care of business Game 2". "Like, we want to win this series, and that's what we're trying to do".
