MYles turner sucks Theis is so much better than him. Literally delusional.

Turner would have made this team so much better with his ability to space the floor, attack off the dribble, and block shots. The perfect center for Brad's system and we got people on here saying they'd rather have Theis. We need to expand our basketball IQ on this blog lol

Typical brad coaching.  Let your college defensive player chuck 3’s while your top college shooter sits the bench lol

Anytime it feels like Smart or Grant or Semi is taking too many threes, I guarantee you it's because the offense is failing to generate the looks the sets are supposed to generate and those guys ending up taking shots as a release valve.

It's either that or isos that slow things way down.  I imagine the team has tried to avoid allowing things to devolve into Brown and Tatum isos.


Why can't they run more traditional spread pick and roll?  Because the most offensively potent guys aren't quite there yet at handling and passing to do that on a regular basis.

Early double digit lead due to Pacers starting cold and Tatum / Brown starting hot.  Things have got gummed up since then because the Celts have struggled to run a half-court offense against the Pacers pressure.

Weak call.  Looked like a clean strip.

Ainge has built one of the worst rosters I've seen in the last 3-4 years. At least when we didn't have the star power we had incredible depth. Not only does this team lack depth we lack star power too.

And on here we are going to bashing Stevens all year despite the fact we will be a 4-5 seed with a literal dogsh1t roster

How do you feel about Danny Ainge and the Celtics roster?

Exactly. Blaming the wrong thing.

I hate seeing Smart get so much undeserved criticism for this. This is what happens when you field lineups that are deficient in terms of ball-handling, passing, spacing and/or shot creation. It stalls and it forces less capable scorers to take action more than you ideally want them to.
