Chris Forsberg from ESPN Boston joins CSL just prior to Monday night's OKC meltdown and discussed whether that will make for a memorable off-season for the Celtics courtship of Kevin Durant. While Chris denies having a man-crush on any one prospect for the Celtics if they make the 3rd, Justin is all in on Jaylen Brown noting that the Cal product moved up on the DX mock draft ahead of Bender, while Jon hopes that LA falls in love with Bender so that Ingram can fall to #3. Finally, we end the show discussing the possibility of no trades and debate whether Ainge and his staff can trust the competitive process moving forward.
Celtics Stuff Live welcomes Scott Souza from the MetroWest Daily News to the show. Scott gave his take on the season, the draft lottery, and offseason possibilities for Jared Sullinger. With water sufficiently poured on the Durant to Boston hopeful fires, we also looked forward to what could be an exciting Finals between the Cavs and Thunder. After the interview, Jon and Justin answer questions from fans on twitter and debate the potential picks in June's draft as well as the importance that HYPE will play in positioning the Celtics to move the #3 pick for the best possible return.

Sean Grande joins Jon and Justin for the first off-season episode of Celtics Stuff Live. Some crazy names get dropped, like Robert Swift..Marcus Banks..Brandon Hunter..and JR Bremer...see if you can handle it. Sean emphasized how the lack of shooting and hitting open looks really hurt this team in the postseason, but especially because of the draw against the Hawks. We discuss how the Celtics lost both tiebreakers for playoff seeding and draft position, which did not receive enough angst at the time. Looking ahead at the draft, trades and free agency through the prism of Evan Turner's spectacles and the benefit of wet cement.
