Celtics strike gold in Draft Lottery but still have to wait at least 5 years! “Stones”

"You already know this means nothin' right? Yeah I know but it makes the fans feel good! Just so you know!"

The NBA held it’s annual Draft Lottery durin’ halftime of the foolishness that was technically called Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. When all of the dust settled the Boston Celtics walked out of the joint with the No.1 pick overall followed by the Lakers at No.2. So the two most storied franchises in NBA history will pick at the top of this year’s NBA draft.

However, the Celtics come out of the joint lookin’ like genius’ and prophets. They’re the No.1 seed playin’ with home court advantage tonight in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavs and they’ve got the No.1 pick in the draft in June! That’s NUTS and hasn’t happened since the Lakers were able to draft James Worthy in 1982.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This is the type of foolishness that happens to a boy when they are consistently terrible. Back in 2013 the dull Brooklyn Nets were so bad and desperate that they gave up three No.1 draft picks for both Paul Pierce and KG. Four years later the Celtics look like Albert Einstein rockin’ a Member’s Only jacket and some penny loafers in 1917. They get to cash in on those No.1 picks and it just so happens that the Nets were the worse team in the league so they’ll get the first overall pick too.

Talk about bein’ able to take the franchise to the next level! What’s so crazy is that they can draft a boy and not have to put any pressure of the kid to be the man right out of the gate. He doesn’t have to carry the franchise from day one. It doesn’t get any better than that. Most cats that get drafted that high have to come right in, whether they are ready or not, and be the freakin’ man on and off of the court for the organization.

Now the Celtics can draft wisely and allow the dun to develop into the system without feelin’ overwhelmed. Brad Stevens is doin’ a helluva job of coachin’ and now they’re gettin’ top flight draft picks too? Look out for the Celtics in about 5 or 6 years. What?!!! Yeah you read that right bruh!!

The NBA is a game of opportunity and timin’ playboy! Nobody’s gettin’ out of the East until that Philistine slows down or unless somebody shows up with five smooth stones and a sling shot. I don’t care how many No.1 picks they’ve got! It’s gonna be another 30 years before we see a freak of nature like LeBron. Nobody’s winnin’ the East until he gives them permission to, that’s the Celtics included. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
