Kyrie Irving says the Boston Celtics are nearly at 'rock bottom'

To be eligible, the players must have achieved one of three accolades during the first four seasons of their career: MVP award, Defensive Player of the Year award, or two All-NBA selections. Still, there's plenty of time for the Celtics to get back on track.

"Even if we're missing (Davis), we have to play the right way and the right way is to be able to control the ball some", Gentry said.

"I give Markieff a lot of credit", Brooks told the Wizards team website.

Boston's rumoured interest in the five-time All-Star has been well documented and are better positioned than many other National Basketball Association teams to put together an attractive package for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Pelicans just got swept on a three-game East Coast trip, losing at Philadelphia on Wednesday, at NY on Friday and at Washington on Saturday. The former ACC player of the year is waiting patiently in the Kings depth chart behind bigs Willie Cauley-Stein and Nemanja Bjelica, but it will be hard to keep them there if he can keep performing like he did in his 20 point and 17 rebound game against the defending champion Warriors.

Real Plus-Minus is an estimate of a player's impact at each end of the floor, expressed as a point differential per 100 possessions, based on both box score statistics and on-off splits. "We've got to find a way to take it on the road now". No matter what happens, though, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry isn't interested in speculation.

"Marcus, he's a tough player", Marcus Morris said.

"I mean there's a reason why we signed him back", said Irving. Nobody really wants Lonzo Ball mostly because of the family stuff and what might blow up in the aftermath of that. "Our pace has been dropping nearly every game". New Orleans committed 22 turnovers, tying a season-worst in that category. It has allowed an average of 36.3 first-quarter points in the last three games.

The Boston franchise also has the future of Kyrie Irving hanging over the team, and while the Celtics will be desperate to extend his deal, here are three reasons why his departure may actually benefit the organization going forward. 'It's going to be a Herschel Walker type of deal to go get Anthony Davis'.

The Wizards have won the last seven meetings and 13 of the last 14.
