    Smart Move: Keep or Say Goodbye to Marcus?

    Couldn't you have applied similar logic to IT in the summer of 2017 (sub out "one bad year" for "one late-season injury")? I'm not saying that the situations are identical, nor am I saying that the Celtics should get rid of Marcus (although I probably lean that direction). My point is that...

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    I think how good Jaylen subsequently became is making people forget how many issues he had as a rookie. He was used mostly in specific spots in the playoffs--"go shut down Bogdanovic" was the only big minutes he got. Nesmith right now is probably better than Jaylen was at the same point in his...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    I get your point, and I think Gordon Hayward is a really good player and it sucked to lose him. But they played well without him last year, both in the regular season and the postseason. Not "championship contender" well (they were legit contenders with him healthy imo), but a lot better than...

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    And I'm old enough to remember Tyler Herro going at 13 and not 14.

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    We're all rooting for a huge crash and burn as deep into the lotto as possible now, right? It's pretty hilarious that the Celtics own pick might be better than the Mem or SAC ones.

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Maybe I'm missing your point but are you referring to Hayward, who basically didn't play in the playoffs, when they won 2 rounds and played even with Miami in the ECF? Or Kemba, who was more limited offensively then than he has been this spring? This year's team would have had trouble beating...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    Yeah, I'm fine with people disagreeing on the cause for this, but effort on both ends doomed the Cs this year, way more than roster issues imo.

    Jaylen Brown's 2020-21 Season

    It was an incentive in his contract.

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Non sarcastic question: what do you see as the role of an NBA coach?

    5/9 vs. Miami

    Yes, hence why I wrote "if only partially." It's English for "not all on CBS."

    5/9 vs. Miami

    The Heat have had tons of health issues this year. It's insane how reluctant people are to criticise Stevens in any way, even if just partially.

    5/9 vs. Miami

    Yes, and Marcus Smart has been a big part of that.

    5/9 vs. Miami

    Not like he could guess that Miami might trap him.
