Watching the Pels in the play-in has really made me wonder how much extra Philly could’ve gotten on top of CJ in a Ben Simmons trade.
Imagine if Larry Nance was their backup center right now instead of DeAndre. Maybe RoCo could be filling in for Thybulle in Toronto. – 10:55 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash is handling a possible return by Robert Williams the same way Ime Udoka is with Ben Simmons. He’ll worry about him when he has to. – 2:09 PM

Who had the better Prada fit: Julius Randle or Ben Simmons? #FullCourtFits

Like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving has no expectations of Ben Simmons returning against Boston. Wants him to get healthy and they’ll go from there. – 1:31 PM

Appreciate everyone who dropped into our Celtics-Nets Q&A today. You can catch up on everything we discussed, from Ime Udoka’s defensive scheme against Kevin Durant to the potential return of Ben Simmons to our favorite MF DOOM track. theathletic.com/3247928/2022/0…1:15 PM

Kristian Winfield: Kyrie Irving on Ben Simmons: “We don’t have any expectations of Ben. I’m not going home being like ‘Ben’s gonna be here Games 4-6.’ I don’t know how those reports come out. I’m not expecting him to do anything outside of just getting healthy, and if he is ready, great.” -via Twitter @Krisplashed / April 15, 2022
