It was time for a change. I think Carlisle is overrated as a coach, honestly. He's solid, but he's also controlling and combative.
lol...who is good enough for y’all, honestly?

Carlisle hadn’t made it out of the first round in a decade, so I can imagine he’d be appealing to Celtics fans who were tired of Brad’s conference finals losses.

He has Boston ties, but he doesn’t check all the boxes.

Look at Rick Carlisle’s teams over the past decade, he’s actually overachieved. In 15/16 season alone Dallas came 6th in the West with 37 year old Dirk , well past his prime Deron Williams, Wesley Matthews and Chandler Parsons.

It doesn’t matter what is appealing to fans as most have no clue and will turn on management as soon as the team loses even if they picked a fan favorite.

Carlisle was a bench player during Bird’s 1986 championship winning season so I actually think the fans won love him because of the Bird/Red connection. Carlisle works best like Stevens with players who lack huge ego and work on defence, something sadly that is going extinct.

I love Carlisle regardless of Brad’s decision but picking the right coach is all that matters. Ethnicity, gender or age shouldn’t be a factor in that decision.

5' 10" former point guard

Career highlight: 1973-74 championship, Boston Celtics

Career lowlight: traded for a washing machine

I love Carlisle. I think he is awesome.

He did a bad job with Porzingis but that guy is difficult to coach. Unorthodox players in general are more awkward to coach and the guy is nickname "The Unicorn" for a reason. Carlisle couldn't figure Porzingis out but I wouldn't hold that against him.

Carlisle has done very well with most players throughout his career. He has an excellent track record.

That's my main concern with  Carlisle. He is too similar to Stevens. This Celtics team needs a new voice, new direction.  They need someone who can manage Tatum and Brown and get them to fix the weak points  in their game, to integrate each other and their teammates better on offense and truly lead.

I think he overachieved this season. They need to get some players around Luka. It's the same problem as Boston has.

Report is that Luka is upset over losing Donnie Nelson.

Here's what needs to happen:

Brad Stevens to Dallas as Head Coach....Kemba to Dallas for Porzingas and a Pick...for letting Brad leave.

Brad would love to coach Luka.

Then we find another GM...and get out of Stevens owed money and Kemba's contract.
Larry Bird was Greater than you think.
