I hope he looked in the mirror.
5.4 points on 32.8% shooting isnít getting it done.
Scoring is not why he's on the roster. Smart has been one of our best players so far and I like that he takes considerably less shots than he used to. He has every right to call out the team for their efforts and execution. Especially when Irving and Horford don't do it. Smart is the team's leader.
I don't care if Irving goes 0-25 with 10 turnovers. Marcus freaking Smart has no right to call him out. HE can bully Jaylen Brown for now all he pleases. Not a player that is 10 times more valuable than he is in the realm of winning a ring and the future of this team.
Well Smart has been the longest on the Celtics roster he definitely has credibility (on some sports teams the player who has been there the longest automatically receives captainship). Boston doesn't have an official captain, but sometimes players need to take action if the coaching staff doesn't get the message through.
And I don't think he called out Irving here, since he's one of the few guys who has been showing effort on both sides and playing well.
Marcus has played well, as in playing his role.
I get that Marcus hasn't called out Irving directly or that he won't do it that way.
It's just weird for a player with such futility in his offensive game to be the voice of reason.
I really like Smart this year, save for some stupid shots here or there.
But how many years has he been in the league to where he can't improve any aspects of his jumper or his long range ball. he gets worse and worse.
He is an enigma, i love some things he does then I want to leave him behind in the airport.
