so, considering how fast Cleveland is cutting this lead, if Brad has to bring back the starters, that would make the second time this season the C's end of bench players would have blown a blowout with Waters the primary person running the offense into the ground each time, would that be enough to just cut him loose?

Trying to decide who is worse: Waters or Grant Williams. Arguably the two worst players on the roster imo.
See above.  ;D
Joking aside itís waters. For sure.

His only value is that he is on a two way deal. Heís legit awful. Canít pass. Canít score. Canít play defense because he is so small.

Man, what happened to Grant's defense?  As a rookie he was a guy you could trust to be in good position.  Now it looks like he's late on everything.  Can't think of many instances where I've seen a player get less intelligent on the court.

Looks in poor condition. Just slow on everything.

Everything should be run for Nesmith at this point.

Also nice to get this game on the first night of a B2B. Jaylen only had to play 19 minutes. No starter played more than 27 (Smart).

Edwards is awful
I live in Big Ten country. I didnít like his game at Purdue and I donít like it now. Though thatís 3 whining posts from me about a great athlete that I have no reason to hate in 1 game so Iíll stop now.

I hope he's not going to go the way of Sullinger - getting progressively worse as his career moves along.

What can Brown do for you?

Nesmith is much more interesting off the bounce than scouting reports predicted.  I think the kid will figure it out.

Bring up raw on/off to say that he's a non-impact player for the Celtics. :laugh:
Jaylen for All-NBA

Looking at a 60-piece if he played ~35 minutes.

I know basketball doesn't work that way, but let me have my fun, lol.

Apparently heís the first player to do it since Chet Walker in 1965.

This was a 2K performance

Very athletic! Nice bounce.
