Buy Or Sell: Is Al Horford A Playoff Superstar?

BOSTON (CBS) -- Celtics big man Al Horford has come up huge in recent playoff games for the C's, especially in Sunday's Game 1 win over the Wizards. Horford scored 21 points with nine rebounds and 10 assists and has been one of the Celtics' best players during their five-game playoff winning streak.

So does that mean that Horford is blossoming into a playoff superstar? That's what 98.5 The Sports Hub's Adam Jones and Nick Cattles discussed in a round of "Buy or Sell" on a Game of Jones Monday. Questions and answers are below:

Buy or Sell: Al Horford, Playoff Superstar

"I sell that," said Jones. "He's been great. ... 'Playoff superstar?' I've got to see what he does against Cleveland to put him on that level, but he's been better than I anticipated."

Buy or Sell: The Mets are cursed

"I buy that," said Jones. "What organization in the last 30-40 years has developed pitching better than the Mets? ... For the most part, recently, they're going through all kinds of arm issues. ... When it comes to their pitching, I would say that they are a cursed organization."

Buy or Sell: Letter grades as a way of judging the NFL Draft

"I buy it," said Jones. "I don't put a ton of stock into it. I certainly don't read all of them. ... But I'm OK with the letter grade. I just understand that you can't just treat it as gospel after the draft."

Buy or sell: 44-year-old Manny Ramirez could hit double-digit home runs if he played in the major leagues right now

"Ooh, I buy it," said Jones. "Manny's got that in his arsenal right now. I don't know that he'd hit for average. I know he couldn't field. I don't know that he could stay healthy for a long period of time. ... But could he hit double-digit home runs? Sure."

Buy or sell: Doc Rivers should keep his coaching/GM job with the Clippers

"I buy that he should and I buy that he will," said Jones. "I don't really think he knows what he's doing when it comes to being the 'basketball czar' in L.A. But if I'm [Clippers owner] Steve Ballmer ... I would give him another shot."
