More than a month later, it's still difficult to believe the Celtics snatched Malcolm Brogdon away from the Pacers without surrendering a key rotational piece.

Brad Stevens' willingness to give up a first-round pick and other players who haven't panned out, in exchange for someone who should provide exactly what they needed, is refreshing, bold and commendable.

The Celtics are already a balanced, talented and well-constructed team, but Brogdon has a chance to take them to the next level. He's unselfish, versatile, tough, skilled and poised, and if he stays healthy, he just might be the missing piece.

My first memory as a Celtics fan was a sad one.

I was 11 years old, so staying up late to watch my Celtics take down Kobe and the Lakers again in the 2010 Finals was not an option. Bedtime for a kid is much like Father Time: undefeated. As you all know, Boston lost. I woke up the next morning to my dad at the side of my bed, prepared to break the bad news to me. "Sorry, buddy. Your Celtics lost."

A Pistons fan for life, my dad was skeptical at first of my Celtics love, but he soon learned to accept the fact that once I started bleeding green, nothing could cauterize my open heart.

On this week's episode of the Celtics Pride Podcast with Adam Motenko, Josh Motenko (@coachmotenko) and Mike Minkoff (@mikeminkoffnba), the Celtics Pride guys discuss the signings of Juwan Morgan to a camp deal, and Luke Kornet to an Exhibit 10 contract (camp deal with non-guaranteed team option for 2-way contract). Which player would you rather see take the Celtics' 2nd two-way contract? Or would you guess the team uses that spot for a player cut from another team like Adam suggests?

Early Tuesday morning, Basketball Forever posted a tweet quoting Tyler Herro saying that the Miami Heat would've won the championship if they were healthy. He pointed out that Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry and himself were all injured during Miami's 2022 playoff run.

Tyler Herro says Miami would've won the title if healthy:

"I think we win it all, honestly. It wasn't just me who was injured. Kyle was playing hurt, Jimmy was injured. So if we're healthy, I think we win it."

The Miami Heat are still in pursuit of Kevin Durant and Donovan Mitchell, but they reportedly have a backup plan in place.

Sean Deveney of Heavy spoke to an executive who believes acquiring Gordon Hayward from the Charlotte Hornets is Miami's "Plan B."

"If you want to give up [Tyler] Herro before you pay him and you want to move [Duncan] Robinson, you would have to add a pick, but those two guys and Omer [Yurtseven], that might be enough to get Hayward if the Hornets decide to reconfigure," the executive said. "It's a short-term move for Miami, but they need to make their move now.

Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reported Tuesday -- following news that Kevin Durant issued an ultimatum to the Brooklyn Nets about his lost faith in team management -- that, "Barring a change of heart, the expectation is Miami will not budge on its stance of keeping Adebayo and Butler off limits."

Now, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel said July 22 that while there had been internal consideration to use Bam Adebayo in a trade for Durant, "at least one influential member of the organization" shot down the notion.
