He is not elite. Heís a good defender. He canít hit threes. There will be few minutes.

Care to make a minutes prediction?

I take it you would at least agree that heís elite at staying in front of his man and getting a hand up to contest (i.e.: quick hips and shoulders combined with anticipation), and that those are the most important skills for a defender. If not then we donít need to waste time getting into the finer points.

You may remember after a game with Phoenix this past season that Brad remarked on his defense, saying something like he was on his way to being an elite defender, ďand Iím not sure he isnít there already.Ē

Looking forward to seeing how Hassan Martin plays in this one. A solid defensive effort would be great  to watch and maybe get him a camp invite or G league contract offer from Maine.

Before todayís game every time they announced Robert Williams as being out for the game I was annoyed but after hearing heís out again tonight now Iím more worried. If this artery condition wasnít such a big deal then thereís absolutely no way a bruised knee would keep him out over a week. Iím starting to think that this knee condition is more serious than they are making it out to be.

We canít have a player that if he simply bumps knees with another player misses 4 games and counting, thatís way too brittle for my liking. At first I was excited when we picked Robert Williams but now Iím just worried and annoyed at the whole situation.

Meh it's tendinitis in SL. They won't play him in meaningless games unless he's 100% and why should they

Understood but this is just speculation.  It was a high risk-high reward type pick and we have to be patient.

Most of the top guys are shut down at this point. He might not be playing even if he was healthy

In my opinion if heís ready to play then you play him. I donít care if itís Summer League or the playoffs. If someone is 100% then you play them. Robert has said himself that he played through this injury throughout his entire college career so Iím not sure what we are being so careful for. The fans want to see him play and for a lot of us fans itís the only reason we would want to watch the game. Iíd rather have them just say heís out till the preseason if thatís actually the case then get everyoneís hopes up for each game by saying he might play.

Respectfully, I think youíre overreacting a bit. Is his arterial condition even related to why heís out? My understanding is that heís out to simple tendinitis in his knee that he was dealing with before the draft, not something related to the arterial condition.

Regardless, theyíre going to play it safe because itís just summer league.

Youíre entitled to that opinion and I probably am overreacting. Heís just the only reason I wanted to watch Summer League and they keep saying he might play and I feel like itís just a lie at this point and that they are going to keep him out till at least the preseason which is fine, just wished theyíd come out and say that instead of giving us the run around.

Oh, Iím right there with you. I still watch the games, but I have to admit thatís it not nearly as exciting without our new prospect out there.

Selfishly I was hoping Tatum or Brown would be allowed to play summer league just to have some more exciting prospects out there  :P

Could be the last #Celtics game for G Kadeem Allen. According to an NBA source, #Celtics will release Allen from his two-way contract and add another player on a two-way deal next week.
This is all about money laundering.

Aw sorry to hear, I liked Allen. Wonder who they like better?
