  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
Semi canít hit a [dang] barn and Uthoff looks like SL Chris Bosh out there.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I like Uthoff, too bad he won't make the roster...

Semiís inconsistent shot is the biggest concern of SL. I was hoping for improvement from last year.

Uthoff looks so much better these last couple games. Wonder what happened

Someone just threw Yabu a lob on the fast break and ... uh...no.

Uthoff is a poor man's Daniel Theis.

(Which isnít a knock, because Theis is a nice player. Just means itís hard to see him landing in Boston this year.)

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
Semi is not elite or even near elite in any facet of the game. Heís a pretty good defender, which is impressive given he was drafted in the second round, but calling him elite is a major exaggeration. As for a minutes prediction, Iíd guess five minutes per game or so, with a lot more dnp-cdís than a lot of people think unless an injury opens a spot for him. If Smart stays he is the 11th man on the roster at best, maybe 12th if Wanamaker can contribute. Hard to see a guy that far down the roster who canít shoot, pass, dribble or finish at the rim getting a lot of time. The Celts have much better options.

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.
Aw sorry to hear, I liked Allen. Wonder who they like better?
my first guess would be uhtoff. but we will all learn soon enough.

Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

I donít think much of your scouting. Youíre going to be surprised.
