    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Nope, not really. I wanted consistent minutes (and no DNPs) to let him build confidence/develop by February. I was a Nesmith buyer during the draft, and was impressed with his energy when I saw him play. By game 20 it was more than apparent that Romeo wasn't going to be ready, Grant had moved...

    but so fitting for this season and the mere fact that Danny traded a good player in Theis for a packet of beans ($$$ reasons)

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    He also had 5 fouls in the Hornets and Spurs game, but I'm sure you noticed that when you looked up all those other games...so that's a fail ;)

    speaking of which, why the heck did Houston toss aside Mason Jones?

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    It's all relative. then again, I hate the idea of Javonte getting 33mins of run..so maybe your right

    Theis/Javonte/Teague trade is part of an ongoing joke about Moneyball/Billy Beane trades taking the power away from Art Howe not playing Hatteberg

    1 confused play = 7 games of DNPs when the team was desperate for WING help from Day 1 this season? Pretty crude approach. Good thing Danny shipped Javonte + Teague + Theis for a 7'2" Center. OR we may have never heard from Nesmith again this season.

    Man, too much ball washing of Brad and his handling of Nesmith this season, which has been inept since the end of February...The kid has offered more hustle/energy than every other bench player on this team, by a large amount. If you can't see that I don't know what to tell you. If Aaron is...

    Grant and Smart never did get back into game shape and the results are in. :( They both sucked this season. Grant especially. Expect major turnover throughout the roster, but I wouldn't be shocked to see GW back in the Garden next season. Maybe some Miami fitness boot camp should be put in...

    It took me longer than most to give up on him this season. BUT dancing on Grant's head this season has been deserved. Last season was different. Preview of Brad's post-season conversation with Grant: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkoPq5AOCOA

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    He didn't suck last year. He was a rookie that took the first half of the season to get up to NBA speed. Played well enough in the 2nd half of last season to be part of the rotation. Then by the playoffs, he developed into a key bench piece that shot the 3 well and played good D. He showed up...

    Smart Move: Keep or Say Goodbye to Marcus?

    I'm not sure if there is a team that would add a 31yr old, fragile, defensive liability for 2 seasons @ $73.6MM? Maybe the OKC Rehab Center? The flat cap isn't helping Danny's cause. Kemba is built to be a ball-dominant #1/2 option on offense and has been better in that role over the last...

    Smart Move: Keep or Say Goodbye to Marcus?

    Yea, agree with this take. I've been a Smart stan for years and have felt he has been the de-facto Captain of this team the last 2 seasons. I'd rather move Kemba than Smart but KWs contract makes him pretty unmoveable (that Kemba contract could end up hamstringing this team for the next two...
