"Evan valenti, Alex Francisco, of course, from Nestlé, coming at you here this morning. Talking to C's and just fun with numbers because numbers can do a whole lot of things that can show that the solids are playing really well, and they can show that they're not playing so well. Case in point, Boston went from a top bottom 5 defense to the top 5 defense in 11 games. However, there's still one of the worst open three point shooting teams in the league. And they're turned around as sort of been based Alex on Tatum finding some rhythm, or there's a little bit, right? 44 straight 30 point games, hitting the nets game. Didn't have a great game against snacks as we all know. But the thing with Tatum is still not shooting the ball that well, considering what we've learned, what we've seen from him throughout his entire career so far, the only difference that I see really is just the ability to get to the free throw line, more like 7, 8, 9 attempts per game. Over the last we'll call it 11 games. Now, I don't really have a stat that shows like I don't believe that Tatum has another lead coming this season, right? I believe in the sample size that we have over his career. I think he's gonna shoot a lot better at some point, but is there any concern in your end the fact that his, for some reason, he just hasn't really found that solid footing that he normally has at this point in the season? I think it was just all the confusion of this offense had him playing so much ISO to start the season, which is always the gripe on Tatum, right? But just seeing he's just put on so much weight and is so skilled that when he just attacks the basket and he's just in his bag, how do you stop it? And he's gonna get, and then he's gonna get the calls, too. He wasn't getting calls because he wasn't attacking the Remy was just kind of resorting to ISO and or maybe trying to throw up like a dumb shot to get everything back with one play and it just doesn't work..

"Welcome back and Celtics are back. Preseason is not quite here yet, of course the regular season not too too far away, but training camp and all of the wonderful, fluffy interviews that you come to expect this time of year. Everybody's in the best shape of their lives. Everyone's and has a chance to contend and all that good stuff. Where do the Celtics realistically fall into all of this we'll get into it Adam Kaufman. Chris grant, I'm Chris, it's great to have you back on the show. I'm not sure you and I together have ever done one of these Evan valenti, I know who of course is typically with us. You've talked to him. You've come on, but I was looking last time you were on Celtics beat was back sometime in February. So at that point, Evan 48 was still with the magic. Jaylen Brown hadn't heard his wrist yet. You know, Jayson Tatum's still using an inhaler. It was a different world back then. So it's good to have you back now. It was a different world. I think this is a better world now where, you know, things are a little more situated, but it was a much different basketball world. Thanks for having me on. Yeah, absolutely. Of course, Danny ainge was still in charge and Brad Stevens was the head coach. We know how that has gone. So the new pobo is Stevens as people have, you know, come to learn. We've talked a lot about it on this program. Email doca is the new head coach. And now that we're finally getting into camp and practices are underway and I know there's only so much that you guys are able to watch when you're down there and obviously you're paying attention, you're listening, you're getting a feel for the guy beyond just those introductory press conferences when he was hired and whatever we've been able to gauge from his experience with Team USA, but what do you find you're learning about email doka this early on? I think he's a tough coach, but I think it's, you know, kind of there's an element of tough empathy there where he's a players coach and guys really like him, but he holds people accountable and that's sort of been his reputation in Brooklyn and Philly in San Antonio. A lot of guys that come out of pop system that's kind of their MO. But I think it's gonna fit well because it's different than Brad Stevens. Jalen Brown talked about it at media day. He was like tough coaching for Brad. Isn't really tough coaching. That's just, and that's not a bad thing. That's just the way it is. Brad Stevens isn't a guy that's going to really get in your face, kind of hold you accountable, sure he can get fired up at times, but emio Doc I think is a little bit different. A lot of guys have talked about that tough coaching element..

"Evan valenti, Gary washburn of The Boston Globe by madam Kaufman and Gary, you have not been on with us since May. So at that point in time, there were a lot of things with this team. They were still, you know, you know, seeking the playoffs at that point. So we were dissecting are they going to make it out of the play internment? What roster changes need to happen? And as the front office need an overhaul, what needs to happen on Brad Stevens bench? Needless to say much has occurred since we last spoke. So we can get into all that, but here's where I want to begin. I don't expect you to know this, but it seems there's just obviously bet online is a sponsor of this show. There is no safer bet in America right now, Gary, then the fact that after Evan and I record a show with whomever it is is kind enough to join us about two hours later, something significant with the Celtics breaks. So do you have anything you'd like to get ahead of right now that might be coming up later this afternoon or tonight? No, no. I think I've heard of. No. It's getting to be ridiculous at this point. We recorded last week. We stopped in an hour later the rob Williams extension was done, making the entire episode kind of move because we didn't talk about anything at all. So just really stinks. What was something the week before, too? There's been the Josh Richardson stuff. There's been signings with coaches. There's been a whole bunch of things that we've missed by ours. And it's just really annoying. So just trying to get in front of it, Gary, just trying to get in front of the story and we want to text any sources or anything just while we're on so we can make sure that we really knock this out of the park before we're done. Sorry, nothing is no. I have no news to report unfortunately. Nothing imminent. So how, I mean, we'll get to the Olympics in a little bit. I know you were there. Generally speaking, how's.

"So talking about this roster, Max you brought up in a counter. Now, I like Evan. If Evan Valenti were here with us for this show. Evan was not excited about the the cancer re-signing said, I can't do anymore, enes Kanter minutes, you know after what he saw in Boston a couple of years back. I for one, you know at a certain point in time Max you look at roll. You look at salary, you look at all of it, you know putting a team together and enes Kanter for one year in the Veteran's minimum wage. What two point seven million dollars for what he can do off pensively for what he can do. As a rebounder. Yeah. It's not the best defensive player. He's not even a good defensive player. But for what he can do in those other areas and plus as a glue guy, a lock room, Gaya, podber teammate, all that when there was reported friction in the locker room. Tristan Thompson among others last season. To me. It's just such an easy value-add. It's such an easy value-add and if he's, you know, for for any reason unplayable in the mind of, who dhoka, because you need to crack down defensively and you just, you can't put them out on the floor, you don't? You don't because like you said, you got William shank. Well, you got a boyfriend and be off each X the boxes to me. Yeah, because you said, you know, just playing defense, maybe not have nothing but offensively getting second-chance opportunities. Tough off-set mean pics. Locker room guy, great guy. That really his teammates have been braced him. 2.7 million a note for for you. That's low peanuts. But oh, yeah, in that in that respect. I think it's a steel. Yeah, Springer. And he was already familiar with the guys who he he's playing with now in brown and Tatum. So I I love his pickup. I love the fact that you bring him in and said that you may be moved on. You know, the one guy I'm going to miss a little bit. It's going to be semi you shoot me over your way. Yeah, cuz I think he was With bands and everybody else. I think he was a little underrated because he was, he was solid. He was a solid Defender. We we we did. Mike do wage, didn't like the fact he was shooting threes all the time. We wanted them to go towards.

And of course, Evan Valenti, producer, sometimes host of this program, welcoming good to have you with us, not a ton of her life changed in the wide world of Celtics basketball since our last show with keysmith, where we really went deep on. All things, Olympics and Jayson, Tatum and email dhoka, and many other things as well, but that's kind of good job. Kind of exciting guys because it allows us to bounce around here tackle, a whole bunch of different things. Beyond our off. Air show, just prior to coming on where we really ran the gamut. I think, how are you both doing? Great, man. Thanks for having me on early, don't have any bees in my yard, which was a topic of discussion free show. So I'm happy about. That's right, the excitement of homeownership, you know, we, we can't imagine team ownership we touched on that as well. That's, you know, that's what Groesbeck and Steve tell you cuz problem and and you know, other minority owners and everybody involved, we can get to some of obviously the the decisions that that group is facing your this offseason. But I think what is what's really appropriate for right now? Is this is, It's, you know, I'm seeing it on social media, guys. Do you have another opportunity for us to go in the way back machine? Look back at that? 2013. Draft of meds, man. Selfish could have had that. That g honest guy. He, he seemed pretty good back then Giannis, antetokounmpo in the Box to 2 with the sun's right now in the NBA finals and that dog. Is otherworldly Tom. I mean the black obviously is, is incredible. I mean, and the thing to remember, too is like this guy was injured. What like, like, you know, a couple of weeks ago? Like like, he's in a still just doing everything. I mean, he's amazing. He's so much fun to watch. And, like, somebody pointed out on Twitter yesterday, I don't remember who it was. So I apologize, but that it was, it's pretty cool that, like, the best player of the game last decade like his signature moment, is a blocked shot and now, you know, you don't know where yada ceiling is, but if he's the best player of the next, you know, five to ten years or whatever it is, you know, maybe his signature moment will be a block as well with with that last night. So, yeah, I mean, yeah, Celtics missed, maybe they should have drafted that guy. All due respect to Kelly Olynyk, of course, you know, it's really like rating your children but which block I mean, whether it was the honest chase down, or obviously. What we saw from yanis as we talk here last night, which one was more impressive to you? You mean the LeBron James? Now, LeBron chase down. What did I say? Oh, you said yamas birth. Yeah, well, I just assume he's going to do that at some point in time. Yeah. LeBron James down. Yeah. I mean, I think it's definitely the LeBron James down, right? I mean, it's like a, a game seven like, you know, real game-saving play..

"In the past week since we record a show it began with Brad Stevens. Making the full trade of his time as president of basketball operations, Kemba Walker, sorry, love you mean it, but gone off to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Who, of course, probably will flip him somewhere else for more draft picks off. Al Horford back with Boston and plenty to get to their, obviously, the C's no longer have a first round pick in this draft number, 16 gone with Walker, a trade of second-round picks. And with hwoarang, Moses Brown coming on in, as well, hoping to parts of Defenders and continue to pile up games like he did against the Seas. When he went for twenty twenty earlier this season with Evan Valenti. I'm Adam Kaufman. The big news web that we will begin with and then we can Circle back to Walker and Horford and that swap new head coach. It's all done. It's not been officially announced as we sit here right now, but it is all done. We know what's going to happen. The 18th head coach in, Boston, Celtics, history in the man who is chasing Banner 18? Someone that you were very, very highly on all over social media and it shows past email, udoka comes in after nine years. As an assistant in the NBA, seven learning under future hall-of-famer Gregg, Popovich and of course after that, one year with the Sixers, most recently, one year with the Nets and that super team that I so passionately routed wage. Throughout this playoff run, they are all done as we go to the east and west finals. Now at this stage of June almost July, but the new head coach there are a lot of things to like here. I'll let you start what stands out well Boston's. Probably get back to the defense jobs. As that was one of the my biggest one of the biggest gripes. So exterior was how bad they were defensively. Just was a complete opposite of what they've been in the entire you know, Junior. Brad Stevens, notoriously, good defensive team. Regardless of whoever was tried it out there, they were an overachieving Bunch defensively. A lot of the time with smaller point guards all over the place would be camber. Isaiah Thomas, you know. Kyrie Irving. They've always been able to manage defensively in this year. Was a bad one defensively so they are going to get back to the defense of fruits doesn't shock me that Brad was looking for that cake guys. So at that particular point I'm just thrilled about a defensive coach then come in and maybe and tweak this team a little bit now we will see if the tweaks work you know, you look at a couple of things off. On the internet, you know, things were the bottom and a couple of defensive fix that he made, you know, to, to Philadelphia resulted in more turnovers, but it didn't really result in better defensive numbers so to speak. So we'll see if the personalities of Austin is a little bit better. A little bit different than it had in Philadelphia. I like that. Just to start. I like the fact that mister Gregg Popovich cloned or at clone believe, you know, disciple worked into that will see. If you know, took a look, you make the, the NFL comparison. Like Belichick coaching tree or the Andy Reid coaching tree or the Bill Parcells coaching tree, you know, Popovich's coaching trees had some success, had some not successful depends on, you know, where your at, your breath Brown, being some sort of maddening in between, right? So we'll see if email holds up on that end and I like, the fact, this guy's worked with a lot of different players. Often is a foreign player himself so you look at all the things that Boston was.

"The one that's, that's it. No, none of us. Have I met him Kaufman welcoming, you know, Evan Valenti. And of course, Gary Washburn. Good friend of this program, longtime Boston, Globe, described columnist and covers, not just the C's to the entire league, and, of course, the cells, most closely Gary, how are you independent of watching this team play this year? Everybody's good for me off, you know, for slowly, another pandemic. And and we're starting to open up a little bit, so yeah, I mean everything personally is, is great. So yeah, that's month, that's all I got for that but and then it's all downhill from here, right? Yeah, that's that's the good part for the Celtics not-so-good no losses and five out of six to COG. Games left in the regular season. We now know obviously this team is locked into the play and tournament which means maybe it will go to the playoffs, maybe it won't. We'll find out the 7th seat is most likely though that is not even as we chat page. Now definitive you still got the Hornets the Pacers in the mix Washington Chicago or battling for the final play in spot but your top six and at least the order that it sits right now it could change see things want the ceiling wise, but the Sixers net box that is the top three clearly in the East and around that, the Hawks, the Heat. And the Knicks Celtics as we know I mean the seasons effectively over guys, they're not going anywhere. They're not doing anything. Even if they do escape the play-in round and inevitably they will. That's how the season has gone. They just, you know, do do the unthinkable, do the unpredictable, so they'll get out of the play and tournament. They'll go to the postseason and off. Maybe shock people just for giggles and win around, but they're not doing anything noteworthy. As we know because Jaylen Brown is he's done, he has had his wrist surgery enza a remarkable year for home. Both on and off the floor. And you know, when you consider obviously everything his role and in Social initiatives and everything that has happened over the course of the year plus, but specifically basketball, it was a dynamic. It was a great year of growth for him but this team I guess in some ways Gary, I don't know if you felt this way, maybe you're a little less emotionally invested as someone who covers the team that a regular fact would be obviously. But, you know, there's an element of once that injury news came out. Once I saw it, I just kind of went. You know what, good and not good. Obviously the Jalen is is hurt and has to go through this page, all the recovery, like that whole part sucks. But just simply the fact of now, I'm not going to low myself into believing that this team can just magically flip that switch. Get healthy and active and go on some kind of run the playoffs. We now know that there's no Mirage coming. This team is what it has been all season long and whatever's going to happen. This offseason is going to happen, but nothing is going to be reactionary wage. To this team somehow magically getting to the Conference Finals..

I'm a professional that would never happen, especially on the page that I used to Hosanna care about dearly, you know, clearly an amasha Marcus Smart is not unprofessionalism whatsoever see and and he looks good. He looks comfortable. He looks more comfortable in the rest. I think next time Jared's on all three of us need to rock rock rock the the robe. So it's starting to say Rob will get to Rob Williams. Obviously, we all need to rock the robes Evan. Well, it's I think if you are a guest a future guest on the show and you don't wear a robe, then you're just going to be dead. You're lazy look down the upon because security does said the part extremely high level and do your all future guess is stuck you imagine if we had Mannix on in a rogue last week, that would have been I can't actual I can't imagine that we're I was going to start to go. I was texting earlier today cuz I was starting to think about our next show after this one, which will be no later than the week sometime. I was texting with Bob Ryan Berg, you know, if he doesn't show where the robe, you know real crying on her clothes and words and then we all rocked the road from now on if it's going to say what what a great flag say, I was just texting SpongeBob Brian the other day, you know, the most famous sports journalist in the world it bogs Ryan showed up though on the show wearing a robe. Would that be the greatest accomplishment in the history of Celtics paid off? Yeah, no question. What a way to ring in show number four hundred. Yeah. No see that now now we got to do it. So now we gotta do it. That's that's just the books now wage. Yeah, it feels like the only thing that's that's really available to us. We have a lot to cover in the next hour including obviously everything is fixed the Celtics who are still marginally about 500 but they've won five out of six. Going back to before the All-Star break had that ugly loss to Brooklyn coming out. It wasn't even that ugly they played..

"Back into another new addition to Celtics beat we are back in maybe just maybe sure the Celtics it was just despaired Doom and Gloom last time we chatted maybe with held from Gary Washburn. We sent things in the right direction four straight wins to take the season to the all-star break. It's where we are now off a couple of days away from that midseason classic in Atlanta plenty to get you there. I'm Adam Kaufman, of course, you know, Evan Valenti our producer and his triumphant returns been a while. We've missed you Chris Mannix. How are you man? God I'm good, man. How're you doing? Good, I'm glad that you were able to put aside your I'm sure very coveted spot in line at Top Shot to do this show. You know, maybe it is a sign of Aging but I can't think of anything more dumb than Top Shot. I just I can't do to be paying actual money for videos that I can just you know, took a look up on YouTube. I claim ownership of them or or whatever it is. I like I was a big Baseball Card Collector back in the day. But but like those were tangible physical things. Yep that I still have somewhere in my parents basement a video clip. I don't I mean maybe I'm wrong but I don't I don't get it. Yeah, it really is amazing. The amount of money that is being said around online for these digital moments, obviously and people that believe this is just the the next wave of of collecting and especially card collecting and the you know, the part number That clearly exists between the NBA and top shots. That's I mean that's a big feather in in people's cap in terms of giving this thing legitimacy, but I'm with you and and again maybe it's an age thing. Maybe it's not because Heavens considerably younger than both of us, but I just as someone who grew up collecting cards, I like to hold cards and read the stats on the back and trade them with buddies and you know, put them in my little holders and sleeves and binders or whatever and and just have them I was never in it's just for the profitability which is that seems to be the wave right here with this thing. People are just looking to put them and make money didn't they do this with like pictures of cats years ago wasn't that a thing like fax number is Pat Trading Card business first. I can't it was like digital clips of cats. It was like, you know, you could buy weird-looking cats of some kind. I don't know like that was another Fab that just fizzled out. And again, maybe I'm wrong but this is kind of one that I don't I just I just can't see it. Yeah, I don't get it either. It's just you have like with the actual physical. Card those eventually run out. Right like the Honus Wagner baseball card the most famous baseball card in existence, right? There are only so many of those left. These clothes live on Forever on YouTube. I mean, what are we talking about here? I just don't I just don't understand it. I mean look, you're going to make money. Good good for you. Congratulations. I got your pride. If you pay actual legitimate money for that. I think I look at it this way..

I'm to by after historic collapse against orleans pelicans to say the least celtics continued to struggle to break through for their cycle of mediocrity with boston stuck on the treadmill. The question is this who is to blame brought on special guests. Evan valenti to sort through the noise haven't just off air said that the discourse is nauseating so perhaps he can keep us calm here. Evan how are you. I'm not nauseating out some good Everything's good Young healthy. I have a roof over my head on my family and friends. Real healthy That particular guard is fine. I don't know if you guys i mean. We all check the twitter sphere in raw online all day. I i can't stand the tapes. I really can't and it's just like is you have a hot tape right. You can't just come out with this medium. Luke warm like you know like level headed stuff you have to. You have to be bold. You have to be brass it. You have to come up with some ridiculous excuse. As to why. The suffolk started performing at thirteen and fifteen. And like as we all try and piece takes together. The actual takers like there's a little bit of land that could go around the entire and you can. You can really just been like. Yeah so this is a rostrum. Major issue is is a somewhat coaching issue. This is a guys aren't healthy. Issue is this defense is terrible issue like this whole lot to go around here. If there was one simple answer it probably would have been fixed by now one number right guys. It's never really that simple. It's usually more complicated net. So like the just. The amount of be asked that i see all over. The place is just absolutely killing me at this point in end. The problem is us consumers of media. Just eat it all up all day in just get our own takes off the dock so just a compounding problem kelsen Week last week. We had the rifts man on all following the risk man. i'll just say the risk men offered some great wisdom in terms of keeping it real and kind of maintaining. I'm sorry to let down your audience. After electric gas says audience of eleven people. We are the audience. Well so yeah. He tried to keep things calm. And i think alex.

"We were just with you on Sunday right back on a Thursday. We don't have a president yet and we don't need everyone's going to do so, there's just so much uncertainty here in the world. Welcome in Adam Kaufman, you know, Evan Valenti are always producers sometimes host. And of course Chris forsberg who we don't have all that often off. Because we don't like him we happen to love. Um, we just feel he's already got multiple podcast that he does over at NBC Sports Boston the guys probably tired of talking. How are you you've already told me like I'm over exposed and that hurt that hurt my feelings. I was like man, I used to be the go-to guy. I was like and I was laying low and now like no one calls anymore. I'm just hanging out in the base where my dog so, you know, like anytime I'm here registry me a shout anyone that's watching by the way versus listening the basement looks great. Great. Yeah looks like you're it's weird talking about here lately real definitely. Yeah that hoop next to them to overthrow right shoulder. It's it's it's it is actually regulation. It is just speculation. No funny story but nothing too much more chance, but when I was first planning this out, I wanted a basketball-themed back of people can't see if there's a box in front of me and maybe my mini-fridge next thing with loaded with drinks or soda and uses sure, you know, but for the for the hoop, I was going to take an old basketball hoop wage. Where the full-sized rim and put it up and then I actually went outside and grabbed an old hoop and realized like you forget how big a basketball hoop is like it would take up an enormous amount of this wall. And so we we we got the mini hoop and shouts to Amazon. I think I found it on there. Yeah looks pretty good. My kids would enjoy we still got the I mean, what is it like Little Tikes? Is that the brand maybe the took like five foot hope that fortunately my gas. You know that eight year old 5 year old and then the two-year-old is just kind of figuring it out right now, but he ate and five-year-old. It's just it's dunk contests in the basement every single day. We have one outside and it gets plenty of years. Whenever people are bored. I wish one of you as long as you've been dumped on yet by your kids your kids. Well I have but only because they make me play game on my knees when I'm going against excuses, huh?.

"Right, everybody welcomed into another offseason addition of Celtics beats and I wish I could tell you exactly how long the offseason was going to last. Maybe it'll be Christmas. Maybe it's MLK Day. This could go on for a little while whatever the case we got plenty to fill you in on information wise and rumors and Rumblings and all that good stuff. So let's do it Adam Kaufman with Sean Grandy long time. I was like to tell him that long-time voice of the Celtics on the radio. And of course Evan Valenti our producer Sean. How are you buddy? I you know every time I log My heart Springs when I hear a long time voice cuz I know I know what it means. I know it all you're saying I know what it's all about. Oh, yeah. I used to listen to you when I was. I get it comes to the same thing. I understand. Well speaking of you being around for a long time. You've been around just a tid bit longer than of course the head coach of this team Brad Stevens a good friend of yours who today as I'm sure you know, it's his birthday forty four years young still looks almost as young as he did when he got the job way back when he was I think toward the end of year 36 months of his rotations on the on the Earth Here rotations around the Sun. What and what do you get Brad Stevens first birthday? What did you get Brad Stevens? Well last night he need any kind of gift cuz I thought he did a fundraiser with Pete buttigieg. Yeah last night. I think I said something like I was disappointed. They didn't ask me to write the jokes for that two guys. You need a strobe light to make it look like there. I was watching the two of them. I was shocked that they actually agreed to this thing together just because you know, I've never seen a dog Both in the same place the same time so you can't say that they're they're not the same person and they Marvel at last Halloween, right? Yeah. He dressed his people to church and gave out and gave out candy vice versa to be winners Brad, you know, just throw on a Celtics at basically. I've been saying you you can't really dress up when you're the two of them but I.

"Welcome in everybody another new addition a selfish being here on a Tuesday. And for the first time we're actually having one of these shows after a completed NBA season. Let's bring in of course Evan Valenti, you know him producer sometimes those to the program office in Thompson. Our featured guest who is good friend of the show has been on many times. Although the last time Ian that we had John was right before the season and I know we were texting, you know, we were thinking of each other off. I suppose as the Lakers were hoisting that Larry O'Brien trophy because we had a pretty good debate going into the year as to who was going to win a championship and in particular where the Lakers stood out from the get-go big on l a i was very skeptical. I don't remember and I haven't gone back to listen exactly what I said, although I do remember saying I didn't think they'd win. I didn't think they'd make it to the finals maybe, you know off its final or something like that. But clearly they went out they were awesome. It's been about a year. So how how are you? How is everything and we can dive into the LA stuff, too? You know, I think I'm doing this. Well as anybody could right now everybody I know is healthy and getting on you know watching these p.m. We also just amazed at how well with all came off. I was I was a real bubble skeptic going in and I thought they were really taking the risk cuz they were they might be hurting their product by playing in these conditions with Iraq and some people might not enjoy the MBA the same or even worse that you may end up feel like the only like you're watching like a B-movie like you had double stars, but they were being directed by Rodger Corman or you know, something you know, whatever the production value was going to be really bad and it turned out to be just the opposite is that was watching these games. I hardly even notice that they weren't fans. Um, and you surely couldn't tell from the play of the players. It was just as intense dead. Hard-working is ever so it's it was a real Revelation to me that it worked out. So well, I'd love to say congrats to the Lakers on their title, but I wouldn't mean it nevertheless..

"Scores, he's really tightened up his handle so now you you have trouble with Brown of kind of. He's not loose the ball. He's getting to where he wants to be. When tatum able to tighten up his handle. That's GonNa make everything easier. That's to get him some where he wants to be for shot himself in a position to find his teammates a little easier right now. It's not that he's an easy cover. But when you put a guy like Chris Paul on him, he can't just take them off. The GERBIL Paul's going to strip it away from 'em. Knock it away. Make a tough on them. Then that's probably the single biggest thing he needs to clean. Clean up in his offense of game, a guy I quite frankly I really wasn't thinking about talking to you about this show is starting to kind of put together my notes and thoughts and talking with my producer Evan Valenti and all that, and then some people start tweeting me about this individual, and it was okay all right. Let's let's examine this a little bit because we usually don't when this team is doing well versus what it's doing poorly, it's not an x factor type of guy, at least initially in your mind, and I'm talking about and his canter because he has served a role off the bench this year. I think more often than not. He's filled up. Up Pretty well, and he certainly a fan favourite just because he's such a likable guy, and he's got his podcast out there and all that, but the last month his last eleven games, he's been terrible thirteen minutes per three point, seven points five and a half rebounds. He's only shooting thirty nine percent prior okay to the last eleven games all the way through the first. I don't know thirty nine games I think it is. He's averaged ten points eight and a half boards. He shot sixty percent, and purely clearly we're talking about offense. Never mind the deficiencies in his defensive game, but are we talking enough about kanter and a lack of efficiency over the last month? Probably not I think there's definitely some connection there to these recent struggles now a couple of those games for example, the Houston Rockets I know. He played big in the one game against Houston and really did some good stuff, but then that second game that by that point Houston was we're? We're not playing anybody big. We're playing five hours. That's just not the game for cancer. It's not he's going to go poorly if you try to play him more than a couple of minutes. There's just no one for him to guard the minis other. Other Games Brooklyn Utah Oklahoma City he's had a guide that guard and what I'll say is we criticize Brad Stevens a lot for not pulling the trigger fast enough. He tends to like to let his guys play through it. He tends to take with his guys, and he has pulled the trigger very quickly. Getting kanter out of those games you talk killed them off to pick it. All and Kanter played I wanna say it was only about maybe eight or nine minutes in that game in then maybe wasn't even that I. I don't have five and then last night. He only played six minutes because so he went right back to whether your garden, Stephen Adams or a nerlens Noel they went right to it, and he played just under six minutes in in the yesterday's game. on Sunday. So that is the challenge acting for for Kanter is GonNa have to either commit to building your defense around him..
