Surprised he is still here and this tells me I didn't need to grab Lillard earlier.
No real surprise considering he tore his ACL late-January, ACL recovery takes 9-12 months, and the Celtics have no reason to rush him back (Tankapalooza 2014). Wouldn't shock me if he misses more than a month of the regular season.
I was thinking the same thing. Probably someone I'm avoiding and letting someone else draft this season.
Fair point and there is absolutely legitimate concern, but all signs point to him returning by the start of the season. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised he wans't picked already in a FBB cafe mock draft, but I gotta guess the closer the season comes, the higher he will be valued, and the earlier he'll be drafted.
Following up on the chatter about Bynum I'd rather risk Rondo than Bynum. When in doubt I'd take track record if all else is equal (and obviously they aren't, given how different they are as players).
