Cattle? Does the fact that he is the GOAT factor into this?

I'm scratching my head about that one too. I remember vaguely him being called 'Veal' for a while... is that it?

You got it. In his New Jersey days, teammates called him Veal after the dish, Veal Scallopini.

I'm not fully following all of this stuff but I'm seeing stuff from Weird Celtics Twitter calling him Meat Check and Beef Bullet.

This dude is going to be fun to watch.

I like that Perk points out his short-shorts as one of his “short comings.” Short build, short dreds, short shorts.

I like what I have seen with his hot shooting and confidence.  I am concerned he could have a little bit of Rozier in his game.  What happens when he takes these quick shots and they don't go in?  Tatum, Brown, Hayward, Walker don't get a touch. Saw a quick clip by Forsberg from the practice scrimmage today and he came down and launched a bad 30ft shot. I think he is smart enough not to go down that road and is the most likely reason why he will be a 2 coming off screens while others initiate.

My guess is, even though he's a pg, he'll play a lot with Smart and not handle the ball as much as he is in preseason. They'll be trying to get him more stuff off the catch than off the bounce.

But, yeah, it's something worth watching for.

Do we have a special player in Edwards?


https://youtu.be/ZAB7TkNSq-Y

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/27856286/carsen-edwards-drains-8-3-pointers-third-quarter-vs-cavs

Brad Stevens came away impressed after Carsen Edwards hit eight 3's in the third quarter of the Boston Celtics preseason win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Edwards finished 8-11 from 3 in the quarter, scoring 26 points.

"I've never seen anything like that. He was pretty special ... You look at a guy that size and you try to figure out how he does it. And he just keeps doing it," said Stevens.

Klay Thompson has the NBA record for most 3's in a quarter with nine. Three other players have hit eight 3's in a quarter in the regular season.

That's always the risk you take with a gunner. They live and die by their shots going in. If they go in they're awesome, if not they suck. I think we'll get a better idea of his shot selection in the coming weeks.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

Great Boston.com in depth article on Carson Edward's development over the years. Started with a slight by the varsity coach who demoted him to JV.

Reminds me of how MJ got his edge.

Awesome read for sure! TP.  He has a definite toughness and chip on his shoulder that most players in this day and age do not have. Love how when he is doubted, he goes silent and lets hard work and results speak for themselves.

Not to mention, Edwards had a TS% of 65% in the preseason, which is elite. Rozier was at 50% last year which is terrible.

It's unlikely Edwards shoots that well this year, but he almost certainly won't be as inefficient as Rozier. Gunners who shoot efficiently are easier to deal with than gunners who shoot worse than everyone else on the floor.

... he will be a 2 coming off screens while others initiate.

He’s Rozier’s replacement. Fortunately he looks ready to step into a rotation role early on.

Like Rozier, he’s high-tempo and gets shots for you off the dribble. If he can keep the turnovers down - like Terry - then he’ll really have something.

Terry’s shooting efficiency tailed off last year, but it’s never been great. Carsen looks like he could potentially give you all the great things that Terry gave you, but with better shooting efficiency.

And yes - that confidence to take the big shots. Rozier in the 2018 playoffs was clutch over and over.

Carsen looks like he’s got IT levels of confidence.


My guess is, even though he's a pg, he'll play a lot with Smart and not handle the ball as much as he is in preseason.

Definitely they will pair him with Smart. They’ll run a lot of the same sets for Smart/Walker that they run for Smart/Edwards.

They'll be trying to get him more stuff off the catch than off the bounce.

Here I have my doubts. Getting shots off the bounce is a strength for him.

He’s got big potential as a triple threat - very quick first step, can go left or right; he’s got a burst. Getting to the rim and making plays are the big growth areas. The deep threat opens up the floor for him and his teammates.

Isaiah Thomas with more size, and defense?

· Team executive on Brown’s future: “All-Star. Multiple times. Just like Jayson. Everyone loves Kawhi and PG as a wing duo. We think we have our own version growing right here in Boston. It’s gonna take a couple more years, but those guys are stars. And neither has an ego. They just want to play and win.”
