I wrote a post earlier today about staying positive and maintaining perspective. Intellectually, I still think all the things I said earlier. But this still feels like a massive, massive loss.
The Celtics will pick sixth. They will not have a chance to draft Wiggins, Parker, Embiid or Exum. They will have to settle for the second-tier prospects — all significant talents, all flawed in significant ways. If they want to trade it for Kevin Love, they will be hard-pressed: The sixth pick holds a heck of a lot less sway than the second or third.
We’ll break everything down later. I don’t have it in me right now. This sucks.
