Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Very easy stretch here in December in which I think, you know, they're always going to get right to some degree. But would you advocate keeping Brown out of the starting lineup? I mean, that'd be weird to have both. He and Hayward out of the starting lineup. And I know who this so starting smart and Morris now. Yeah, they're starting those two right now. And I it's a really tough question because I think in the short term like right now, they they're just better with Jaylen Brown off the floor. I think he's six percentile in points per shot attempt. This season is the Celtics most if inefficient player by far even though it feels like to me that Gordon and Terry Rozier have gotten most of the PR for like, you know, struggling so far this season. He's only shooting twenty six percent from three. But I that's kind of tough question. Just politically with the team. You know is he going to be okay with that? I mean Gordon's gotten his money so far already. So maybe he's more comfortable coming off the bench. But like Jalen is out there trying to get paid right now. So I don't know would would you do that considering the long-term ramifications of moving them to the bench. What do you think doing? I would worry about the long-term with this one. I mean, Jalen Brown. Yeah. He's been rough this year, but he is still an important part of their future. And I don't he might need him. They know New Orleans pelicans future to that might be even a bigger. Yeah. That that's an that's another factor in that. And the other part would Marcus smart as much as I love him as a player, I think they need Jalen Brown to get this offense to the right level. Like, I mean, he has to play a whole lot better than has far against the best of the best. We've seen Boston granted that was without Kyrie Irving. And then you know, Zale was limited the year before we've seen them kind of flat line a little bit offense in the playoffs and against the raptors in the bucks and the Sixers if if they keep playing, well, they're going to need more scoring on afford, Marcus smart Ican, I still don't trust the jump shot. So I think he would be exploited on that end of the floor and as great as he is defensively that's harder for the dove. I think smart by might be the only person the league who actually trust his jump shout, frankly. And that's the only person who matters to be honest. Well, a Brad Stevens might have a say in that too. But I mean, obviously, you know, the way Bron was shooting it even. Smart at this point, it is it upgraded at why they broad has been solid defensively is career as look good. I mean, he's still any maybe he's a little bit better against some bigger guys whose effectively playing shooting guard most of the time, I think smart is better guarding sugar. So they may well be better at this point in time with the way broad is playing with smart, but both to preserve proud as an asset to keep him engaged with that. I think just the upside in terms of the way Brana shut the three the last two years in his career. You know, I think he does of a morbid upside there there's I mean the shooting the twenty six percent from three though Liotta is like he this was always kind of the concern firm right in his shot at well is four looks much better. Still not great at the free throw line always wondered like, you know, this is that buddy attempts like the Knockin was he couldn't shoot coming out. So you always wonder if maybe this could regress what else you got to these guys. Well, I just wanna touch on that I think with with Marcus smart. I mean quietly his usage rate has gone down significantly this season. I think he's become much more comfortable. With not shooting as many shots. And I was surprised in the games. I saw that teams actually for for some state strange reason, they're staying attached to him on the weak side. I think just like his reputation as you know, somebody that's gonna shoot regardless if he's gonna make it for some reason has teams guarding and maybe more than they should. So I think that's definitely helped and jail..
