My response to this thread, because I don't want to get it off topic more than I already have, was I don't think building like the warriors works because we don't have Curry. The entire team goes through him they have Klay Thompson and Green. We have Isiah Thomas who could make it interesting that way somewhat. I wouldnt mind getting a sf more like Green on this team. That's why I like Crowder. Green is even better. Unless a guy like the next Larry Bird comes along though. I don't see that though. That's why I think ainge is drafting guys like james young and taking chances on young small forwards that are halfway decent. jeff green was the same t hing. Crowder etc. Draymond would be an upgrade over Crowder. Isiah is not in Curry's class but that's the point is to upgrade.
I think our team is better served getting a big man down low though. Be a more balanced team and be stronger down low. The Warriors have great guard play and are weak inside.
I'd still be looking for that Larry Bird sf and center. That's just me. But if we could get Draymond ..
Draymond would be a really good signing and get a center too on this team to go with Smart and Thomas and guys like Bradley.
We sign Draymond I would let Crowder walk though. They are redundant. I would sign Draymond and bring Young along as a shooter. Save money that way vs reupping Crowder.
That would be a good move for the celtics. I still think Crowder might come along and be a draymond kind of guy but Ainge has been kind of spinning his wheels there. jeff green wasnt it. Crowder could be. Draymond Green we know what he is.
I think Isiah and Smart are keepers for the time being.
If I could build the celtics like this today it would go something like this
Smart Bradley or Young
Draymond Crowder or Young
Sully/KO Kevin Love??
Draft a center or sign someone in the interm to be a rim protector.
I would keep james young just because he can play sg and sf. Smart ultimately may be our pg as well.
I really like Draymond Green as a player but also feel like we might be sellling ourselves short here a bit. Unless we are getting Kevin Love. Ben Simmons guys like that might actually be Larry Bird.
If I'm making anyones faces melt my apologies. It's not even like that.
