Another A+ job, Brad! One of our most important players gets severely injured in a meaningless game right before the playoffs because youíre a dumbass who doesnít think, even though you had no problem resting other players costing us games while we were still in the battle for the fourth seed for some ungodly reason.
So done with Brad. Itís dumb, arbitrary, and inconsistent decisions like this that have screwed us over all season long. What a joke. The day he no longer coaches the Cís canít come soon enough.
Smart could have gotten hurt in any game.
The reason we love him is that he tries hard in every game he plays, and that he tries to play as often as possible.
Your reaction is over the top and irrational, but I get it because this is some really bad news.
First, this wasn't just any game - it was literally meaningless for the Celtics. So, sure, he could've got hurt in any game, but he had literally no reason to play in this game, along with the rest of the starters.
Second, the only thing irrational here is Brad's decision-making - like, literally irrational. He rested people down the stretch in numerous games for the playoffs, even when we were fighting for home court advantage, costing us several games. Yet as soon as we lock it up he goes ahead and plays everyone in a literally meaningless game, leading to two starters getting hurt and leaving the game. That's literally irrational decision-making.
I know people have kind of perfected burying their heads in the sand when it has come to Stevens' shortcomings, but, man, how you can rationalize this one away is beyond me, Pho. This is literal harm with no benefit coming from Stevens' poor decision-making, yet somehow it's not his fault? Give me a break.
