Zizic has not played a NBA game is so young and his outside game doesn't exist at this time
At his age and experience he will be foul prone
Isaiah is out, the draft is next year and crowder shot well but was taking minutes from hayward ,tatum,brown-he might have instigated some problems he couldn't win-
semi can be as good as crowder shoots the three,better lateral,more vertical a has work ethic and high character-did i forget defensive DNA
This trade favors Boston in near and intermediate time span
If iIT had stayed and was hurt most of season-the celts would certainly be worse off ,if he comes back damaged and asked for brinks truck next season -that was it
We got a superstar with playoff experience that has chemistry with hayward,younger and just set free.Now with Brad as his coach after 3 Lebron puppets
-A four times all star, playoff finals three times-clutch,best ball handler in league and able to jell with a whole new cast of players
Wait what, @rollie didn't you start the "KILL THE DEAL" thread like a few weeks ago?
Rollie always does that. Every C's player is always the answer (see Jerebko, Green, Zizic) until they're no longer on the team and someone else becomes the new answer (see Theis, Semi, Morris). Those green glasses are extra think. I do agree with him that we won the trade. However, he did want to kill the trade AFTER the Cavs had issues with Thomas' physical.
What did i say about jerebko -that i thought his 3 point shooting would improve after a summer with a court in his house
Green i was enamored with his athleticism and transition play as it was paired with isaiah with suns-I called green a stiletto and that as an opponent Brad feared him-a streaky,offensive weapon in brads hands
.I had little to say about Theis
Zizic, I only defended or thought something was wrong in Salt lake like long season,jet lag and elevation-he looked so slow
I did give game results during his season
I think i quoted Blatts story on his toughness and determination,relentless on boards and he had good form on foul shots.He set good screens and had good motor but he only made one mid range'good form.
I have NEVER thought of Theis or Zizic as an answer
Morris was a good addition and brings some grit
-Nader i followed from summer league and and watched his games for Red Claws -he was much better than RJ and James but now is really at back end of loaded position
Semi shoots the three better and plays better defense and a crowder replacement.
Nader was d league rookie of the year and shot the three much better in first half season until forced into point forward position
Nader would have helped last season off bench but is buried now-
