They loved him. But also, he got hired less than 8 months later. So idk, how truly bad was what he did really?

Also Iím starting to think they didnít even go hard after another coach or ask most of the players for their input. Seemed like they just focused on internal options and picked Mazz who is also Tatumís guy but probably not Jaylen, Smart, Brogdonís, etc

Thatís interesting considering the Cís won 57 games in the regular season, which was the second most in the league. But if Woj says soÖ  :laugh:

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

They probably tried to make the most of the situation, plus talent alone may have propelled them to most of those wins. The playoffs are different. Itís a time to make adjustments. Winning cures everything, but when the losses pile up, thatís when the cracks in the locker room start to show.

Itís amazing how no one, even typically level-headed national guys, can seem to acknowledge that the Heat exist and have anything to do with this. Theyíve shot bananas this series and have been out of this world. The Heat are a combined 7-1 against the top two teams in the regular season after limping into the playoffs with a negative net rating. Itís absurd. Theyíve shot over 50 percent on 3s twice in this series already (the other one they were over 40). Gabe Vincent has become Steph Curry and Caleb Martin looks like Larry Bird. I donít get it. All I can tell you is that the other team gets a say, too. People are idiots if they are laying this all at the feet of Mazzulla or insisting that itís all about effort and heart and such.

yeah, and i never got over being born via caesarean, but sh*t happens and life goes on.  ::)

these prima donnas had all of training camp, preseason, the regular season, and two playoff series to get over it, but theyíre going to meltdown about ime in the ECF?!?

if thereís any merit to this report, the players responsible are soft AF and should be traded posthaste.

How are those statements remotely mutually exclusive?

I know this might come as a shock, but professional athletes sometimes play differently if they feel their coach is incompetent. For instance, if you haven't bought into a coach's gameplan, you might not execute it well.

The team really dipped after all-star break, was that just time away and egos or Joe becoming the official coach? I always wondered.

My gut feeling is that Wyc cheapened out with replacing Udoka.

It makes no sense to entrust a head coach with a total of two years division II college coaching experience. When you factor in the expectations on this team, the only conclusion I can come up with is that Wyc didnít want to pay an expensive replacement & Udokaís salary.

Wyc should sell the team to give the Celtics the resources they deserveÖbut in saying that, the grass isnít always greener. Rich owners donít always equate to winning, in fact it usually means more meddling.

Just surprised that we didnít hear about this at all during the regular season. Now that the team is one game away from elimination in the ECF we get a new narrative that the players never got over Udoka being dismissed.

I donít think thatís surprising. Discontented parties probably wouldnít want to rock the boat whilst succeeding.

Plus, Tatum and JB had incentive to do really well in the regular season. Those all-NBA supermaxes are a big deal

heís been incompetent all season and the game plan hasnít changed. they won 57 regular season games, the first round of the playoffs, and the conference semifinals. if they couldnít figure out heís incompetent until the ECF, then maybe theyíre not the professionals we thought.

if they were pros, they wouldnít quit because they ďfeelĒ any particular way about joe. but therein lies the problem with our ďleaders.Ē theyíre not pros; theyíre entitled brats who quit on brad, quit on joe, and now theyíre allegedly throwing away a chance at a title because theyíre sulking about ime?

joe is incompetent and should be fired asap, but like i said, the players are soft AF and any who are complicit in this unprofessional mutiny should be traded because they donít deserve to wear celtic green.
