Dont forget 7 year Celtic Eric Williams with #55...

Fair enough hate was not the proper description, valid point. That being said I dont think this kid will go to Maine once and will play 10-15 solid minutes a game.He dropped to 25 because college sr's are out these days and hes not a "sexy" euro with unlimited (and usually never found) upside...10 years ago this guy is the 10-16 pick in the draft. Also that Purdue team went 4 deep, hes on a team by himself he would have garnered a lot more attention. We have a small window as we all know, Id rather have Jajuan now then a 19 year old that will take 2 years to learn half our plays.

Really dont understand the hate on Jajuan when people on your staff are admitting they have "no idea who this guy is"...again I have seen him play tons the last 4 years, but I am admittedly one voice.... this is via Ball Dont Lie's draft report card that was just published, from someone who lived 8 min from Purdue,but is not a college b ball fan: Boston Celtics Additions: JaJuan Johnson, E'Twaun Moore Grade: A For the last few years, I've lived in Lafayette, Indiana, which is just an eight-minute drive from West Lafayette, Indiana, where Purdue is located. Both of these players are from Purdue, and I should either be terribly biased in their favor, or reacting negatively and inappropriately based solely on the punk Purdue hipsters that dodge in front of my car every time I cross over the Wabash River to buy used LPs in West Lafayette. The truth is that I don't care about Purdue, I watch as much Purdue basketball as I do Duke or College of Charleston basketball (that is to say, no basketball), and my location has no impact on this rating. With that in place, I think Johnson can be a terrific player in the right system, so much so that he was my favorite target for my hometown Chicago Bulls as they picked late in round one. And Moore, though his game is full of holes and he is a wing trapped in a point guard's body, could be a rotation-level talent. Even knowing Johnson's rebounding issues and understanding his small frame, Boston could turn him into a contributor that lasts for years. Not bad, for the end of the first and second rounds. Boilermaker-hoy! (I don't think that's what they say, here. I'm not at all certain what they say, here.) Give the guy a shot...

If you know nothing about them how can you comment on where they will be playing next year? I have seen both play many a time in person, both are waaay more polished then Avery Bradley. JaJuan Johnson can give us 10-15 min next year.

I went to Wisconsin and watched him in big 10 games for the last 4 years, no way this guy ends up in Maine. Hes an extremely athletic, defense first big who will be great with Rondo on the fast break. Think Chris Johnson with a much better skillset. Is he an impact player next year? No, but 10-20 athletic minutes off the bench for sure.

Wow cant believe he listed Arroyo and Murphy as positive things Ainge did.

Ehh..Simmons can be annoying, but the guy knows his basketball (just wrote a damn good 700 page book on the subject). Also I would be a little more then skeptical about trusting your pronouncement that "Shaq will be back soon". Whats the most games hes played in a row this year? Still open on the trade, but lets not decide it was the right move just yet, Baby was TERRIBLE last night.
