2012 NBA Draft Open Thread

It’s draft night!

As of 7 p.m. EST, the Celtics still have picks 21 and 22 in the first round but that could change at any moment.

Let’s have your reactions, thoughts and outrage in the comments section below.

  • nfrench88

    Legooooooo!!!!

  • LACelticFan
    • Anthony

      I'll take that trade.

  • High Rollers

    Who wants to see Danny make some waves? I do! I do!

  • High Rollers

    @LACelticFan If that happens, I hope they flip Mayo for Smoove. Josh Smith has grown on me while Mayo has never been one of my favorites.

  • micky

    i dont know whats gonna happen tonight , but it better be good

  • High Rollers

    Kind of surprised Blakely fails to mention that sign-and-trades can’t happen during tonight’s draft.

  • SteveB

    With money to spend for a change I hope Danny finds that free agent or trade to make a bigger move. As much as Josh Smith drives me crazy, and I don't like the Hawks of course, I think he could be a great fit. This team needs two things, rebounding and scoring, and in that order. I just hope we aren't disappointed my some crazy move or pick that never helps the team.

  • nfrench88

    Stern's got some swag, not gonna lie. Brushin those boos off like it's nothin

    • Anthony

      I wouldn't call it swag… more like delusional. Lol.

      How many years did it take for him to acknowledge that flopping is an issue? And he still hasn't fix the issues with the refs.

  • nfrench88

    Flopping and refs are two issues that are intrinsically controversial. They can't be fixed, unless they wanna let the refs go to replay on every charging call, or any call for that matter. And Stern knows everyone hates him, and he's telling everyone tonight that he don't care, haha. SWAG for days!

  • Anthony

    Lol… it definitely is funny to watch.

    Are we up to the 21st pick yet?

  • Morpheus

    MKG is the 2nd best player in this draft, will eventually be as good as Anthony Davis.

  • High Rollers

    Will Anthony Davis and the Davisettes pick Junior next?

  • Patrick

    Still a good crop of guys to pick from…

  • I_Love_Green

    Danny staying put I guess

  • ChrisJ

    I am really hoping we can get Terrence Jones and Royce White. I think that will be a great core for the future. Anyone else agree?

    • ChrisJ

      Shit! I spoke too soon!

  • Tos

    GOOD. Royce White was NOT a good fit for Boston.

    • micky

      who you think we gonna get

  • micky

    who you think we gonna get

  • I_Love_Green

    TYLER ZELLER PLEASE

  • ozcelts

    White is interesting prospect- looks like a tweener who can't shoot- but great basketball IQ. Good luck with that one KevMcHale

  • I_Love_Green

    SON OF A

  • I_Love_Green

    BITCH

  • Anthony

    Rockets just picked Royce White. I wasn't really sold on his game and actually pleased the Celts won't be picking him. Hope there isn't some sort of trade scenario involving Houston and Boston with the pick.

  • W2.

    No Terrence Jones, No Nicholson, No White. Me thinks Dreymond Green and Marquis Teague….

  • Phil

    Nuggets are taking Fornier, so a lot of players for the Celtics here. I'm getting excited. Missed out on White, but he was climbing too much late. I'd be happy with the Baylor guys personally.

  • I_Love_Green

    My two least favorite players in the draft, PJII and Sullinger, are probably going to be picked here back to back just to mess with me.

  • Rolltide3332

    !Here we go boys

  • OKCeltic

    Moultrie & Jones?

  • Anthony

    I predict Perry Jones III and a shooting guard

    • Anthony

      Maybe Jenkins or Teague

  • Phil

    There's Sullinger. Ugh.

  • I_Love_Green

    And we're taking Sullinger…….god damnit

  • Tos

    I was hoping we'd get Fournier.

    I agree with whoever said this ealier: I hope we don't find out we traded up to get White via Houstons pick. That would suck.

  • I_Love_Green

    I said the entire year I would laugh at any team that takes Sullinger, and that he'd be a big bust….now the Celtics are taking him.

    Hoping for Jeffrey Taylor at 22.

    • Tos

      At this point in the draft I don't blame the Celts at all.

      My worries is that the Celtics have bad luck with players medical history… so this does make me cringe a little bit.

  • Tos

    Right on one!

  • I_Love_Green

    FAB MELO ARE YOU KIDDING

  • W2.

    Jeff Taylor would be good at this point.

  • Tos

    That was a shocker…

  • Rolltide3332

    Nice picks. Im ok with both

  • lakershater13

    WHAT??????????????? PERRY JONES!!!!! TERRIBLE!

  • LACelticFan

    Sullinger and Melo.

  • W2.

    Trust in Danny….and clean the puke out of my mouth.

  • Patrick

    Solid picks. I’m happy.

    • LACelticFan

      addressed our biggest need…..rebounding

      • I_Love_Green

        With what pick?

        • LACelticFan

          you dont think either guy will improve our deficiency on the boards?

          • I_Love_Green

            No. No I do not.

            Melo was a terrible rebounder in college, and Sullinger might surprise us, but realistically he won't be anymore than an average rebounder.

  • lakershater13

    How do you take Melo over Jones???? You could have traded back to get Melo. Everyone said he was horrible in the private work outs. Just what we need an all defense no offense center. PERFECT!

    • cowboy

      I imagine you still wish we had Perkins too. What is he an all defense no offense center.

      • lakershater13

        No I hate this pick. Melo is not a good pick. People were saying he may drop out of the first round.

  • Anthony

    Ugh… guess Rondo will only be running with AB.

    Sullinger and Melo have to be trade-bait right? Maybe DA thought it was Carmelo and not Fab Melo.

    A little disappointed to say the least.

  • OKCeltic

    Coulda used an heir apparent for PP but okay with these guys I guess. Does Jeff Green play more at the 3 now if we keep him?

  • KYCelts

    weak picks, shaking my head

  • Phil

    I'm done slamming stuff for now. I'm fine with the Sullinger pick, but is there anyone besides Ainge and Boston and Syracuse homers who don't think Melo sucks? I can't think of a worse realistic pick than him, so many guys with big upsides fell, and they got stuck with guys of the ceilings of Big Baby and a better Ryan Hollins!

  • skeeds

    An NBA-ready big with health problems, and an NBA-unready big with huge uside. Ainge gambled in two very different ways. Whatever. Big guys are always a gamble. For every Shaq there's a Kwame Brown. Nobody ever has a clue about how they'll turn out…
    Given the C's bigs health history, we're screwed. Given Ainge's and Doc's history of late 1st round picks, we might've just locked our future frontline.

  • micky

    you got no faith yo. with the help of KG coming back . if he does. KG will help them both

  • Anthony

    Guess the Sullinger pick means Bass is gone.

    Fab Melo = Acie Earl??

    I hope Miami doesn't get PJ3. Fingers crossed knocking on wood while throwing salt.

  • JCP

    Health issues aside (which we can only trust the doctors on)… Jared Sullinger is a TOP TEN talent! How is that a weak pick? We need some BIGS… you can't teach seven feet.

    I think both picks are great value and look forward to having additional large bodies off the bench (if Doc will play either of them).

  • Anthony

    Knew Sam Presti wouldn't let PJ3's potential go to waste. SMH

  • Patrick

    What’s our 2nd round pick going to be? Any ideas?

    • OKCeltic

      I hope it's an athletic 3. Maybe a backup point?
