The bench reaction was great, love the playful camaraderie.  If you rewatch the bench reaction, keep your eyes on Wanamaker at the end of the bench.  I LOL'ed at his reaction.

He is not good at it, good to see him hit one, I hope he gets it down.  Bench did go wild.

I heard Mike Gorman on Toucher and Rich this morning mentioning that the players on the bench were planning on acting like they fainted if Williams ever hit a 3. Wannamaker went through with it, but everyone else was so excited they couldn’t help but to react the way they did. The comradery on this team is great.

I have to think that camaraderie affects winning.

You hear sometimes that players don’t have to even like each other to win (Shaq and Kobe is a prime example that gets mentioned); but camaraderie definitely affects whether players stay with their teams, and teams get better as they stay together.

An argument for not trading any of the core guys.
· 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.”

Guess we can start talking about his shooting. His high free throw shooting percentage was indicative of being a good shooter.

He was a beast in college.  Williams and schofeild were pretty much the Tennessee offenses.  I was surprised he wasn’t shooting more until now.

He’s such an unusual player. True he’s not very long and he’s not quick off the ground. *But* he is increasingly able to stay in front of wings and guards, and strong enough not to be rooted out by forwards and even some centers. He gave KP trouble and stayed in front of D Rose. That’s so useful. He sets a solid screen, usually well timed; he can punish smaller players in the post. If he hits threes now? Really nice future.

He has the potential to be PJ Tucker with a little extra offensive IQ/passing.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

Agree

Really unusual move... running away from the basket for the short fadeaway?

I agree, though I think grant has the potential to become a Draymond like player.  Looking forward to watching him develop.

The passing looks really good right? Currently watching the Celtics vs Pistons game in full (I missed it yesterday) and I'm impressed by his passing.

Grant is starting to grow on me a little.  He does have a certain exuberance about him that seems contagious.  I wish he had a little more 'crazy' in him, though, as that sort of edge that players like Rodman or Draymond have is what truly makes a player of that skill set great.
