    Honestly, I thought waters was heady last year when he got his run. But he looks to be torpedo-ing himself. Its crazy how much he shoots when he is on the court...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    I was thinking more on your first point. I think marcus is good enough bringing the ballup against pressure. I havn't seen RL enough as a primary handler bringing the ball up under pressure to know he will be sufficient. I am not sure evidnce of him getting to the rim in PnR is enough to say...

    Romeo Langford - Pick #14

    And they were fun last yr too. He is in the right place to make plays pretty often for a ~rookie. Do you really see his handle as tight enough to bring the ball up the court under pressure? I wouldn't want JT/JB doing it either...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Question for you folks - what are you using and paying for internet fees to enable you to cut cable. Cable is a "wife" expense, so I don't get too involved - but she insists the internet is as expensive as cable.

    +Brown looks to not be as sharp cutting post knee injury. But they are not playing as a team. Too much hero ball from the would be heros and too much defering to them from the others. Too little practice.

    Daniel Theis to Chicago for Mo Wagner

    widen the court. They should have done it years ago - I remember the first time I saw the t-wolves play live with Garnet's massive wingspan. I have been on the "widen the court" bandwagen since then. Even a foot on each side would provide so much room...

    D(anny)-Day : Predict the outcome of today's trade deadline

    There is little reason to keep both (Theis and Tristian) of them at this point. Maybe they could be both go to cover the cost of fournier - and they could start fourneir at the five (and keep the TPE open). <kidding>

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    I do wonder if there are after effcts of the knee/covid/compressed schdule limiting the impact of the Js. Agree on their willingness to ball stop/iso - the team is no fun to watch. But they are not as effcective as they were to start the yr. Were they just lucky at the start or is there...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    And the lack of practice has to be impacting them as an inexperienced team. as others pointed out the stars are still learning how to be stars and make their teammates better... and obviuosly PP, AN, GW look like they could use practice time too - learning sets and rotations. Maybe they will...

    Langford or Nesmith: Who's the better long-term fit?

    I like langford. I like him as a defender and someone who can finish on the break and off cuts. I am not squinting to see that - he had that last year. Question is whether he can get to 35% on 3s - but don't most folks who put in the work eventually get good enough?

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    its not Javonte. its javonte, carsen, waters... teague (he has been okay in "break glass" capacity, but i suspect they thought he might have a bit more). There is not a player at the end of the bench that has a sinlge elite skill (beyond javontes athleticism). Not sniper to turn to. No...

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    way too much one on one play. I suspect JT / JB become better one on one players becuase of this - but the 1 on 5 (well not 5, but mulitple defenders) needs to stop. JT's handle is too loose to go iso against mulitple defenders. The three ball wasn't there - but I thought the ball movement...

    Is it time to talk about Coach Brad?

    I am in this camp. This isn't the year - don't use the TPE if it pushes you into the tax. Nobody thought JB was going to be this guy, this year - lets have fun watching them, and hope that we rebalance the carsen, semi, javonte, tremont, teagues into a single capable wing and #3-4 string ball...

    2020-2021 NBA Game Thread

    I think the luxury tax is a matter of setting up a run for contention. Aren't they better breaching the limit more into tatum/brown prime? Not many had brown performing like he is this season.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    Hee has looked better over the last two games - and some shots falling would help that perception - but he seems much closer to being in the right place (more often than not). You can still see him thinking a bit - like the airball against cavs. The sequence was essentially: xhe was open...

    Jaylen Brown re-signs for 4 years/$115 million

    His balance getting into the shot is so much better, not just compared to himself (historically) but the league. He is almost always straight up and down on his jumpers... Whether that is pullups off the drive or coming off picks. Maybe it is the confidence in the handle, knowing it is there...

    Celtics 20-21 Roster Construction

    I read that an immediately thought they are missing easy to use databases and tools. Maybe they have them and the front office doesn't have a supporting process for handling the conversations. As a name comes up (even if you don't want to integrate with the voice solution) they could type in...

    Payton Pritchard drafted #26 overall

    Price was a hell of a player. I remember him being much quicker than PP is - but that might be my memory. They are both crafty with the dribble and creative finishers

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    Going back to last year Semi has been a 38% 3pth shooter. I think that number 37-40% is sustainable if he is taking catch and shoot 3s, since he has (already) sustained it for a (sort of) season
