I don't think Kanter will be an issue.
It's a given Kanter will not disappoint us.
The problem is the Celts still need another star player.
If the Celts add a guy like Kevin Love or acquire a player like Bradley Beal, Kanter will prosper even more.
Just don't expect Kanter to be like Horford when it comes to pick and roll defense.
Celts have the talent
Yeah I agree - Kevin Love is pretty much shot.
He's not a star and hasn't been for several years now. He's basically a better (but smaller) version of Kelly Olynyk these days. He's an above average pretty good (but not elite) rebounder and he's a skilled passer, but his jumper isn't what it once was, his post game left him years ago, and his defense has been consistently mediocre.
In terms of intangibles he's also a proven choker in the playoffs, he's highly injury prone, he has known emotional/mental problems that he's admitted to struggling with (not a good mix for a team that had all sorts of chemistry issues last year), he struggles with leadership roles, and and he struggles to deal with pressure. He's proven to be incapable as a leader.
I can see how Love could be a nice fit on the right team (he'd actually probably be a great fit on the Clippers, Lakers or Warriors right now) but he's just not a good fit on a Celtics team that already has too many wannabe stars and who's biggest concern right now is defense.
