My bet is he comes off the bench but finishes games.

Brogdon is best point guard and it no even close on this team . Should be one of the top in the East .

I only stayed up for the first half. Kabengele apparently had a huge second. Among our 2 two way guys, is there anyone who showed enough to be considered for elevation to the regular roster?

The Celtics won every quarter of the game.

Kabengele looked very active and did some good things. He looked way more active than Vonleh. So, my guess is heíll get minutes until Time Lord returns. JD looked very good in his garbage time minutes but, barring several injuries heís not getting called up any time soon.

Iíve thought that Kabengele would beat out Vonleh for a spot on the 15-man for some time, and nothing today changed that for me.  The only question is if he can beat out someone who isnít currently on the roster (whomever that may be).

If the Celtics didnít have so many PGs, JD would absolutely be promoted, but they donít need him so heíll be a 2-way.  He looks like he belongs out there ó canít wait to see him next season.

Should be able to beat out Kornet. Luke doesnít really do anything  well and he has no upside.

watched on tape delay.  tonight's takeaways:
- everyone looked at least decent though the players that looked like they could have had better games: Tatum, White and Vonleh.  hard to believe Vonleh had 9 rebounds but he was underwhelming in the first half.
- team is still way too careless with the ball -- especially in the first half
- players that looked better than expected-- Davison, Hauser and Kabengele.  all looked really good against NBA competition

Nice big win. Nice to see the Jays coming out big.

Lastly, just preseason guys. But nice to see Celtics basketball back again.

I like Kabengele and Vonleh more than Kornet. I mean, I'm sure Luke is a good teammate, but not really sure what he adds on the court more than these two.

Brogdon really makes that second unit go. I have no doubt that The Celtics would've won the championship last year if we had him.

He would make the first unit go as well. Brogdon is  too good of a player to come off the bench. The Cís would be better off with his shooting ability next to Smart instead of White.

He would be good starting too but I like him off the bench. It'll be a luxury not to have Jaylen or Jayson on the floor and the offense still runs. Brogdon gets open shots for those bench shooters.
Brogdon is going to play A LOT with the starters as a sixth man. Not sure why people get so ruffled about who starts. Malcom has already accepted his role because he knows he will play A LOT with the starters.

WE are missing 3 guys and we look like we have too many players. That makes me feel good.


Oh, 4 guys if we include Griffin...
Gallo, Kornet, R-Will and Griffin. If even 2 of those guys play to their potential, this team is unstoppable.

I guess we have to acknowledge the Hornets were missing Bridges, Hayward and Martin. If they had all 3 of those guys, C's still would have won but by a narrower margin. Hornets could take a deep dumpster dive this season, they're just not that good.

I think that we can safely disregard Gallo and Bridges from any discussion for this season.  Neither will see the court this year.

as we've seen with team every year since Brad was coaching and through last year, they look like world beaters when they hit their 3's.  they live and die by them.  waiting to see how they handle a game when the 3's aren't falling.
