It's still too early.
I know itís early but the results have been ugly. Perhaps the off-season expectations were severely misguided? Seems to be a fit to a large degree, but talent may also have been overestimated. We have one proven star in Kyrie. Thatís it. We also have Horford who is a solid solid player. Does all the dirty work.As for the rest, well, they all have warts. Jaylen is athletic but inconsistent with low basketball IQ. Heís essentially the anti supporting player. Unsteady, erratic, and often out of control. I continue to be very bearish about his potential and future. Not a star in the making at all.Smart is smart. Gritty defender but below average offensively. Hayward not ready. Morris has been great but can make you pull your hair out when heís bad. Rozier has been awful. Played WAY over his head in the playoffs and having really hard time with his minutes.As for Tatum. Iím more bullish on him and expect him to be very good. But there is a chance that weíre wrong. His iso ball is troubling. Is he the next KD or the next melo? We shall see.Now onto fit. Obviously theyíre experiencing growing pains but who thought that a mix of smart, Morris, and rozier sounded good? If Morris wasnít playing over his head, theyíd be a complete disaster. I think the starters will get better but I still say switching out brown for a steady player would improve the team.
Hey guys new here but long time Celtics fan. Great game tonight had me fuming at points to obviously ecstatic. I really have bad feelings about Gordon, I understand he is coming off a terrible injury and he needs time to recover but man I feel like his shot shouldnít be this affected especially with those spot up threes and recovering from this type of injury is not something many athletes can do. I understand PG did it but Gordon has never even averaged 20 a year or been as explosive as him. As for Tatum I really think Kobe ****ed his head up and got him out of his game and did it to pay us back as Celtic fans lol. I really liked how jaylen started going back to the basic and getting to the rim in the second half and built his confidence up for that OT three. Looking forward to posting and interacting with you guys cheers go Cís!
