    Sam Cassell to join Celtics coaching staff

    I have no idea what his reputation is in terms of Xs and Os or player development, but if nothing else he was intimately involved in game planning against the Cs and is also very familiar with Joel Embiid's strengths and weaknesses. I also remember him being awesome as a player-coach in 09

    Celtics vs Heat ECF Redux Discussion Thread

    Shouldn't there also be an option 3.) ball movement and player movement, especially utilizing the threat of your stretch 5, to open up the paint and get good looks at the rim/midrange?

    Joe Mazzulla officially named head coach

    View: I think Cassell would be a great hire and probably better than JJ Reddick who was floated for Joe's staff last year.

    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    As long as Simmons meant as an assistant not a head coach he wasn't off the mark at all. This is from last year:

    Celtics vs Heat ECF Redux Discussion Thread

    I have no background in statistics so apologies if I'm misunderstanding, but it seems like a lot of this conversation is a redux of the talking head debates about analytics vs eye test or guys like CJM saying "I like math" vs guys like Barkley saying "you can't win as a jump-shooting team". I...

    Celtics vs Heat ECF Redux Discussion Thread

    This is a great article written from the Heat perspective. He gives a breakdown of the adjustments and counter-adjustments made in the series with lots of good stats.

    2022-23 NBA Game Thread

    It kind of looks like Kuminga starts laughing at that point which seems to have made Clarkson more pissed. Don't know him but not surprised he's a fake tough guy

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    I've always felt like these arguments about minutes are just cherry-picking whatever side fits at the moment. Either the player has "gotten into really good shape" or "they wore themselves out playing big minutes". And people just pick whatever side fits their narrative. Is there any evidence of...

    Big & Tall Shopping for a New Center

    If the team keeps playing like they are and no more injuries to the bigs, I think they'll look for an upgrade at the margins rather than a Horford replacement. Plus Poeltl is going to be the most sought big on the market and I bet his price will be higher than we want to pay for an expiring...

    Just noticed Galinari on the bench. Has he been coming to all the games?

    Jaylen Brown, Year 7

    Aside from his social media presence, has anyone else been a little worried about Jaylen's play? I know he's putting up pretty good numbers and we don't need him to be amazing since Tatum has taken a leap, but he doesn't seem to have learned anything from his playoff run. So many drives where he...

    2022-2023 General Celtics thread

    This matches the eye test for me. Al, in particular, has looked bad on D. Doesn't look as springy on switches and has even looked a little lost in post against bigs like Jarrett Allen and Vucevic. Marcus seems like Marcus and his shooting will come and go but I think his defense has been pretty...

    2022-23 NBA Game Thread

    This season feels like the first "real" season since 2019. There are so many guys back from injury and interesting rookies its kind of overwhelming to try to keep up with it all.

    Ime Udoka suspended for the 22-23 season

    Is Director of Player Development a subordinate to Head Coach? Given that she's the only female staffer it seems likely it was with her and the power dynamic doesn't seem quite as clear in that case

    Grant “Corner Office” Williams

    I know this has been discussed in other threads but this is the question I've been thinking about most this offseason. It really seems like Al is the rug that ties the room together. He basically allows the Cs to play Timelord since he can space the floor on O (can't play 2 non-shooters anymore)...
