That great refreshing feeling of 5 players that can go nuclear on any given night.

Tatum has been nuclear ever since he was selected to the all star game.  It’s been awesome to watch.

Hey folks,

I don't know where to put this message but I think the optimism thread is a good place. I want to apologize for my attitude for the past couple of days. What I said doesn't reflect how I truly feel, it's just that I was shocked at the effort the Celtics had played for the first two games. It was wrong and I should have calmed down before doing stupid hot takes that I don't even believe. I'm fine now and hoping that the Celtics will pull through.

TP for you.

Payton Pritchard looks like a gamer.  Jaylen Brown is constantly improving.  We actually have a rebounder in the starting lineup.

I have a feeling that in a couple of weeks, we may get better from getting worse, too.  Tatum may be humbled into playing better team ball and we may switch Smart to the bench in favor of Teague for better synergy.

I really liked what I saw from Robert Williams last night, save for his defensive screw up (also Grant Williams) on the Sabonis game winner.

Payton Pritchard already looks like a player who is going to be in the rotation for a long time.

Jeff Teague seems really steady and assertive, to me.  I guess it shouldn't be a surprise because he was an All-Star not THAT long ago.  He's got the confidence of an established vet.  He's limited in what he can do defensively and can't really beat anybody off the dribble, but I find myself trusting him when he's got the ball.


Tristan Thompson is such a great fit.  Could have really used him the last couple of years.


Jaylen Brown just keeps getting better.  He's a guy I expect to add something to his game every single off-season.
You’ll have to excuse my lengthiness—the reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

Tatum has had "off nights" during these first 3 games and still managed to become a positive influence and work through it.

Tatum actually made an impact in the first half last night.

Brown's midrange game is looking elite.

Pritchard looks like he'll be a very good 8th guy by the end of the year.

Thompson and Teague are what we hoped they'd be. Thompson will only get better as he finds things that work for him in our offense.

Grant has made more 3's this season than he did during the first 1/3 of last season.

Smart is making way better decisions with his shot-making.

The players are saying all the right things.

We beat the Bucks.

agree on all of those points.  We may not have the win total we want by mid season, but I think by the time the playoffs get here, we will again be a tough out.  It feels like we have a better balance this year than last year.  We just need two things to happen:  1) Kemba will need to come back and be at least 80%  2) young guys need to continue to develop - and I don't mean become all stars, just good incremental development from Timelord, Grant Williams, Langford and PP.  If those 4 can become dependable role players it would really help.
