Celtics Talk / Re: A trade for Towns wouldn't cost as much as AD

He should cost more given he is under contract 5 years. I would explore it to see if I was wrong though.

Celtics Talk / Re: Stevens... it's time to let Tatum and Brown get loose

The reason jaylen doesnít get more minutes is because he gets lost on D. Morris (deservedly) gets blasted for getting burned on D but Jaylen needs to get called out for overhelping/late rotations/lack of communication.
Being garbage on defence over the last few games hasnít stopped Mook, JT, Rozier or Theis playing

Besides no one said JB needs to stop getting minutes.

Iím saying thatís why he isnít playing as much as people probably want him to play. And Iím saying itís because despite his offensive surges, he has a bunch of defensive lapses.

But these guys arenít featured the way Jaylen is featured either. I mean, JB gets a lot of touches and opportunities. Just because he doesnít start doesnít mean he doesnít get his opportunities.

Brown had earned the right to start.

Has he? https://streamable.com/cxzz5

These guys are professional athletes not 3rd graders.

But why expect them to buy into hard work and high effort when we can just hand them everything without them earning it?

Like I said before. I dare someone to point out what Jaylen, Jayson or Terry has added to their games ON A CONSISTENT BASIS since last year.
Jaylen has added a beautiful, knee kick, Dirk-like, fall back, turn around jumper that is virtually unblockable and he is hitting it at a great rate. Jaylen has also added a great Eurostep in the lane which has seen him be able to finish better. Jaylen is also finishing at a better rate inside and doing so through traffic. Jaylen improved his handle for his 2nd straight year to the point he can actually shake and bake outside looking to open a lane and drive. Jaylen reduced his turnovers by 15% while increasing his usage by 5%.

He is also better at passing of the drive to open shooter or dumping it off to a diving big man. He's added a finger roll to his finishing tool belt. He does a better job at playing physical in the post area against opposing wings and big men (Lebron killed him in this area at times last year). He has displayed at least some ability to play with rhythm off the bounce keeping the man on his hip in the paint (I'd like to see more of this).

And I know Jayson Tatum is going through a tough spot right now and has looked a lot less efficient than last year but I think he's noticeably improved his rebounding. He seems to also have made some strides finishing inside, and he's starting to add some fouling drawing (grifting some would call it) to his game.

Terry..... well he is ne he is. Very similar overall to last years regular season numbers. He might just be what he is, fine 3rd guard type.

Title could be true, but KAT is unavailable and a lower tier player compared to AD.

Yet despite all that he is still an unequivocal positive on defense, both by advanced stats and the eye test. Yes he makes mistakes, but people are confusing that with being bad. It's not that he is bad defensively, he just isn't as good as he could (and I think will eventually) be.

I also think the jaylen is error prone message is overstated, as others have pointed out he is far from the worst offender in that regard on this team.

Given his age, durability and new contract extension he would absolutely cost you Tatum. Plus everything else. Also he isn't gonna be traded.
