It did the next year. So I've always seen that game, you know, with highlights or whatever. But that was a game, the Celtics were way ahead. They were, you know, they had that game. This was every single point that Jayson Tatum score was critical to winning that game. I mean, and it was, it was efficient, it wasn't like, I'm just going for it. It was. So it was all on the flow of how the game was going on. It really wasn't forced in any way. It was him going to the basket along, not gaining the free throw line, just taking control. And and you know, the other thing I want to say about that is he was taking control from the start. He was not found though that scene was horrendous with a capital age for the first 2 and 1/2 quarters of the game, he was doing everything he could. I thought both ends of the court to try to not be in that in that spot. It just took a long time ago. He led by example, of energy side of things too. Yeah, oh doubt absolutely out

Kemba Walker Rusty, But Also ‘Pain-Free’ In Return For Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks
"Boston celtics had a bad weekend and kimball walking. I would call them. Losers kemba walker. I had a bad return simply because they got smoked at harm by the new york knicks by thirty points and kemba walker made his return now again. He didn't have a great game individually but he got through the game although he did leave in the third quarter with injury. He was fine to return if he could have been. He was that his minutes restriction. So he wasn't gonna come back now. We're getting drilled anyway but kemba walker said after all the right things felt good to be back at their now. It's just a matter of getting some getting his wind back and he's hoping to have that minutes restriction lifted. These things usually take probably three or four games at least Before we get there but one of the probably as a bit crazy we've seen some strange scores a strange result but seeing the boston celtics get absolutely hammered. No jason tatum. Who's out with coronavirus. Right now by thirty to attain the knicks. Who have been awful. Recently was a real big surprise really. I know the celtics hadn't played so they were a bit rusty. But i don't think we really expected them to get hammett what By that much. Good signs for the knicks. Obi toppin they rookie came back Hit two threes as well. We we heard all about how he played at close to the rim. They knocked down threes last night. That's how confident he was feeling. Took four two of them so that was great. Julius randle had another very good game here for the knicks for the celtics. They just couldn't get it going at all here at thirty five points in the first half alone And i think it was only fifty after three quarters they had yes so really shocking performance here from the celtics once they get back once they get jason tatum back. I think they'll be fine but this is the one they want to flush down. The toilet drilled at harm. And that's what the coaches say. I don't really want to evaluate this guy just like let's just flush the toilet.

"He's a guy that's come out and saying even in post came from yesterday, you're gonna expect to see me play more minutes. I've had these conversations with Coach Boone holds her and I fully expect to be logging more minutes. It's something he wants. It's something he'll be granted. I don't have. It's a non story from last night. It's an unfortunate bounce of Jason Tatum, three that was well defended. Miss free throw that he shorted on the second of two. He's your guy, and they made the right choice. And nobody in Milwaukee is gonna be questioning this decision to pay him. 220. Okay, let's move it out of the Celtics. So the Celtics won the game last night against the Milwaukee Bucks as we've mentioned now, I think five times Um and Jason Tatum is the one that had the game winning three and so You have been saying for a long time J to me that Jason Tatum now needs us. A little solidify himself is the superstar Gordon Hayward. He's already a star. He's already a star. But it's time now to put him in the category of superstar and this is now the year to do it. There's no more Gordon Hayward on that team. Although He's probably a star in the N B. A that I can't believe No one's even speaking about that. There's just no longer on the team, and no one cares. Says maybe he didn't add as much value in the bubbles. He was hurt, etcetera. So I guess my question to you is Jason Tatum even said himself. He didn't feel like he played that well last night, but he played well when it counted. So now this is his year to go out and prove that he can be Compared among the elite. He is in all MBA third team guy last year was great. He's a star. Jalen Brown is is one be on that team stars. Well, incumbent to those guys were all very good last year. This year. I want Jason Tatum. Trying contend for a first team guy. There's a lot of stars in the league. It's probably be very difficult, but Jason Tatum has the tools has the skill set to do it. And him demanding that shot have the confidence to take that shot. It's clear that is shot right? It was a fluke that it went in, but he wants those moments. What that game delivered last night, which was greatest Two stars trying to seize the moment when I was winning time. Tatum, with the Bank three was able to get it done. IATA's hit Went short on the second of the free throws. Jason Tatum. A moment like that. Those are the ones you want to see. More of. I expect to see more of Ah, Yannis Miss free throw not being able to deliver. I don't expect to see a lot of things. But for Jason Tatum and for Celtics fans. You want this star to take an even bigger step and becoming even more massive star? I wouldn't see Jason Tatum is a face off the week rights Not to that point, and I've heard J will and key shot of those guys have this conversation on this show. It's It's a fascinating one. It's a very radio conversation. Who are the true superstars in the MBA. Jason Tatum's Not there. Jason Tatum can get there. It's going to require more winning and more even more gaudy numbers and moments like yesterday he has the ability to deliver and check all three of those boxes. I look forward to seeing. All right straight talk wireless, no contract, no comp. No compromise questions swirling around. Who will be the Patriots quarterback this weekend. Next year we moved to the NFL.

"It was about the Nuggets. It was about the obvious in the Clippers in the late change, Sure, but now you have Ah, shirt and then who are we talking about? In the East? The Celtics? The Bucks. Now you have a team in the nets that are and we weren't I mean the heat obviously down the wire, but I don't think that was a team that we were mentioning continuing, but now we are, but now we are And so now I'm saying you have a team in the Nets that have Superstars. They have depth. They have all the abilities to carry them throughout a season and into the MBA files. Is there bat more balance? Now? Between the Eastern? There's just another team shade that is, ah! You could throw in a contender. I'm saying front runner in the eastern. These nets, like a lot of people would follow along with me and say No, It's the next for the taking in the East, But you can't discount Janessa drew holiday out there with Chris Middleton with the Bucks. You can't discount the heat, ALS he culture how we saw that lead them to an NBA Finals last season. The Sixers maybe do they go get James Harden and pair him with Jo Ellan beat and get rid of been seven. I hope I just hope the Brooklyn doesn't make the mistake of going to get James Harden. I do take it Hardened gets moved, which is inevitable. It's a matter of when not if I do see him being rejoined there with Daryl Morey. And Fili, and that becomes yet another team. The Celtics. What with Jason Tatum is your legit Go to guy, Brad Stevens. I'll never discount him. There's a lot of teams worth watching. That is beautiful for the product. It's a very good thing, but right now I see a Nets team that I say. I don't know if there's anybody better than them out there. Except for the Lakers, who are playing with a sense of urgency and day one for me to truly know who they are yet, But I know they got LeBron James Anthony Davis had a better roster that they did a year ago and oh, by the way. They're the reigning NBA champion, so it's setting up very nicely. My hype is through the roof, and we've only seen two games. Okay. So speaking of the Lakers, let's go there. They lost last night to the L. A Clippers won 16 109 end. Jordan mentioned it. Probably not. The sense of urgency they were looking for. The Clippers got out to a big lead. It kind of gave it away. Obviously, in the second half, that's why the game and end up being so close down the stretch. And this was the Lakers. I don't think they let one time in this game. So the sense of Arjun see clearly not there. You kind of heard it, too. From LeBron James. After the game, just you know, it was a weird off season for him. He couldn't quite get his body the way you wanted to. We didn't know in the season was going to start like it's just feels like that kind of vibe right now for the Lakers. Those guys don't care what happened in that first game. I mean, we heard the comments about the conversation. With a D and LeBron talking about man. I can't believe we just played a game today. I mean, that's the mentality of the Lakers. LeBron knows the same sprint so he ain't thinking about what it's 40 time is Thinking about what his time is when you cross the finish line of the marathon, But there will be some intriguing moments as we find out how these other pieces fit in for the Lakers. How's my trust? Harold fitted? How's that? A shrewder Phillip Phillip, filling sugar filled in very nicely fitting into the puzzle in Game one. Marcus alone was not very effective. How will he be a peace Lakers roster is better than it was a year ago. That's all you need to know They won the title last year. Watch out for this team. Biggest thing to me, though. Clippers. 31 collapse First Nuggets collapse that lead in the first half of this one, A Paul George, who's known for making blunders off the court, and had some blunders on the court, obviously down the stretch of the bubble. Care business down the stretch. Paul George said My team right now I've got it. Yeah, Gotta stay focused. All right. To celebrate Festivus.

Boston Celtics Hopeful That Tristan Thompson Will Play Opening Night Vs. Bucks
"But the celtics. I think one thing that if the celtics can get everybody healthy on the floor This team can really look forward to is how good this defense can be when everybody's healthy and able to play. I think tristan thompson was actually a fairly strong acquisition in the offseason especially for that price point. And i think there's gonna be some nights where marcus smart jalen brown. Jason tatum grant williams and tristan thompson. Make life very very difficult for opposing teams. So at its peak. I think this team can be really dangerous and potentially vinyls worthy. Everything breaks the right way. But i do think the beginning of the season is going to tell us a lot about the squad. Some pretty rough night's early on where we are playing a lot of young dudes lot of unproven dudes and we're not going to be completely healthy
Nets Destroy Celtics to Cap Preseason
"Without Hyperbole and Bobby and I were talking about this prior to the game. I think it's very safe to say there's not one positive thing you could say about tonight. I guess the only thing is I can only go up from here. Just amazing that looked okay to Steven in portions of tape I'd say but yeah, I want to get to that in a minute. We're sorry. Sorry. Sorry, you can't complain once the referee that's not bad preseason numbers. That's not bad. All right. This was in that Rose for multiple reasons we get everybody's First Impressions what first or the shooting is the shooting a true purchase. Nobody's going to the basket when they are trying to go to the basket. They can't get there just brick after brick after brick and again when Tatum and Jaylen aren't knocking the absence of shooting on this team. And if this team is going to rely on shooting is the scariest thing by far to me that if this is who they are a team, that's just going to fire it up there and they can't shoot off. Matt are we in trouble? Yeah, we're a big travel especially when you have open shots. Like how many times these guys get open looks especially Jalen Brown do you like essentially there were like, let's see if jaelynn can actually shoot at a high level against us off and it sort of gave him that space right but then when he do he did a good thing you did the right thing. He attacked the Rim Early on but then when they adjusted when they locked down defensively the southerners were beside themselves. I personally thought the Celtics not only lacked the continuity that they needed to produce offense as a whole. I mean Jason they know how to stay out there the second unit because it was so bad. But also I thought they lacked confidence. I mean the front rimming I'm sure some people will say, oh that's just maturity but didn't even look confident out there the Marcus Smart even look that confident prefer for Marcus Smart, you know, someone heading into it, you know, how many years he's been in the league now and and I was a little I was a little thrown off a bit by off today, especially offensively. I know he started I really high school, but I thought he was trying to you know, at least put some more effort into it but it seemed like he was like, you know what guys I'm not feeling tonight. I'm checking out, you know, and yep. We'll keep playing defense because I got nothing on the office. So this was I guess you could say my biggest fear for the Celtics and I think John's probably his biggest fear too. Is that the name Campbell s overcompensation smart Celtics and I think that's kind of what you got from the start and it was like Margaret smart was not shy at all putting up some of those three pointers. I thought was 146. I don't know if we finished 146 but I think I saw him at that at one point and these were some pretty bad misses. And yeah, I mean when you miss open shots, I'm not really worried about missing open shots. I think Brad Stevens is either. I mean hope it's the first one is say, you know, we got the looks but they just didn't fall it happens. But when you start just chucking shots and they to the point where like nobody on the team is really feeling so you don't have enough like offensive help right now to like get over those shootings something like like we said if Jason Tatum isn't giving you twenty-five Thirty at night and Jaylen Brown's not giving you 28 I haven't like you're screwed. Like there's just not enough Firepower on this team to carry the you know, the the lulls in the in the in the offense of the game so long, it was pretty traveling to watch from the start and I'll tell you what the Brooklyn Nets are real. I've seen enough.

Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach
"Joe. Lake. Up after mark was let go had a bunch of quotes This was one of them that I found co part of it was that he couldn't get along with anybody else in the organization and look you did a great job. I'll always compliment him mini respects but you. Can't have two hundred people in the organization, not like you. Okay. and he said when I say the organizations whole I don't just mean the team just fifteen players that are involved in the coaching staff I mean everybody there's two hundred employees here. So we look at the organization going forward and the kind of coach we want and not just the performance everything else all these factors matter. We took all of that into account. So we have the player part of it. We have the owner part of it. We knew the front office didn't like him when one of the assistance. was busted for recording Jackson in meetings to play for the front office, which again that actually becomes a pro mark Jackson part of it. The Mark Jackson staff was not good enough the ownership in front office told him repeatedly, the staff is good. Enough Mark said we have the best staff going he and scalping apparently got into it and scalloping he was reassigned the front office didn't like that part of it. So we have the players have the staff we have the ownership we have the front office. Let's also talk about some of the other stuff that's just let's face it. Weird Jackson's Amana Faith I. Don't question anyone's faith. I just say to you leave me alone and I'll do my thing That's the way I've always operated and that rubs people wrong way when he was a head coach but also would find time to get to La whenever he had a convenient off day to go and do that. It's tough to tell a man of faith. Hey, you know what don't be that interested in God? That's that's an almost impossible conversation but if I was at ESPN or anywhere and said, Hey, you know what? I can't watch football this weekend. Because I have this higher calling eventually it worked they'd be like, Hey, you know what? Man Like this is all part of the job being availalbe around is very difficult in tough thing to navigate as I'm not even hundred percent comfortable doing it but I'd have to say employer at the time being frustrated by it actually makes a little bit of sense and I think there's other things that just bumped people out when curry had his ankle issues he was brought up in it was kind of a playful thing curry's brought up they put the holy oil on his ankle and. Jackson's wife at the time and Pete Jackson was like look like he had chronic ankle problems and now he doesn't. So you figure it out. That's one of those things where people like wait what Jackson also had some issues off the core where he was caught up extortion deal and I'm not even really getting on his case for that because I think a lot of things happen to people that are public figures that goes on normal people's lives. But the public figure becomes the of jokes on and on and on. He also said when asked about Jason Collins availability years ago. He said not in my locker room. So it came off as if he was a homophobe because there's evidence that he is, and then when he was asked to clear that up, he said look I know Jas I know his family and I'm praying for them right now. Hey, man you save your fucking prayers. Okay. That's the kind of stuff that just doesn't play no matter who you are and I think the. Most important part of all of this because I guess I'm still maybe a little surprised that he doesn't have a job because other people have been on TV and not been great on. TV. I've looked at other coaches that haven't had great runs and there's been plenty of people that have gotten second chances by the way both black and white. So when I see people out raged that he's been blackballed or as. Shannon Sharpe said White Bald or Kendrick Perkins recently, just saying like all of these things that I just going off on the idea that Mark Jackson doesn't have job it really feels like, okay. Are you informed and but yet you've made up your mind decided not to change your mind or are you uninformed and I think so many people screaming about this or like Oh wait that's right. You know maybe either moments you had just now listening to this like Oh, that's right. I've nothing personal against Mark Jackson. He's one of my favorite college basketball players of all time all-time. You guys know how huge of a Saint John's Fan I am and I actually was you know as a little kid be like dude I can't believe he's going this late in the draft is GonNa be awesome and he was awesome in the knicks I felt so vindicated I was. Like and I could refer team right one day I love Mark Jackson and I was right. But when I listened to him on the broadcast Van Gundy I, think him being on the broadcast Van Gundy chances of getting a job because if I was worth a half a billion dollars or more and had the opportunity to own a team or owned a team right now and I'd go. Van Gundy's on all of these little things like, Hey, look at how they blind me Anthony Davis on free throws already have them on the other side of the court. So he can seal for Deepak smaller offender will there be an adjustment. Hey, what's going on with the substitution? Hey, this rule's actually wrong. Why are they doing it? This Way Jeff Van Gundy will say, here's Hey Jason tatum something's wrong with him. He's the first pointed out it happens multiple times every single broadcast Jeff Van Gundy is easily the best NBA analyst in the game right now. Mark doesn't do any of those things and I. Don't know if that's just him not being comfortable in that role but he's a coach. He's a former player and he doesn't do any of those things. He'll say, Hey, this guy's not just a great score. He's a great individual. He's a human being. Okay. So and so doesn't get enough credit for shooting. Okay. In everything is results based. If the shot goes in, it was a great shot at the shot doesn't go in Hey, that's the guy that shouldn't be taking the shot. It's very. It's very minimal depth and when. You have people that make these decisions. You're almost instead of looking at the resume in Golden State which is on its surface again resume. You'd say Yeah. What like six years? Nicholas gives Scott his shot young team garnered play defense that's hard to do. But I think being next to Jeff. When Jeff runs circles around him on the broadcast. It it might remind go wait why why is this one guy way better talking about the game than the other guy so I think the best thing market do would not be on the broadcast with Jeff and who knows what might happen. So I just think the more we look at it and hey man trust me this is not white guy decide to push back on racism segment because I've. Probably done with those the rest of my life. I'm seeing specific to this one because the NCAA numbers are atrocious. The ABC's the head coaching. Diversity that we have in the pro sports leagues still is not what it needs to be I'm not pushing back on any of those things. But when it comes specific to mark Jackson, there are the informed in the uninformed, and hopefully if you've resisted this, you're more informed now.

"If you're on the Milwaukee side, I think coming into the series, one of the things I highlighted was the Celtics are going to need Jason Tatum to be the best version of himself to actually win this series. Tatum as been missing in action through these first two games. And so maybe that changes and the Celtics can kind of take control. But if he continues to struggle like I said like they just need just enough offense to get this win. And they didn't have it in game two the third quarter like the offense just died, and we saw that happened against the Pacers and the Pacers suck. So they couldn't take advantage of that like six or seven minutes stretch where the offense just kind of completely short circuits. But the books were able to and blew the game wide open. I mean, I'm picking Celtics winning game three for a couple of reasons. First of all, I just went all in on kyri for the first ten minutes the podcast. So he's guaranteed to have thirty. Second of all Janas got a lot of calls in the first half of game too. I thought he was getting that quote unquote superstar treatment where the TV executives are like we need to milk. This series is for as many games as possible. So let's make sure he gets the free throw line. I'm kidding with a conspiracy dog. But you got a lot of calls there. That would be number two. And then number three. I mean Eric Bledsoe first game back to Boston. It feels like he's given five interviews about you know, kind of dreading this game and dreading this moment. I don't feel very comfortable with him and sort of his up and downs walking into that pressure cooker. So for me also when it for Danny too. You know, I think there was going to be a really motion jolt there from what he was going through checked too. Yeah. So that that to me sounds like a Boston went on about you. Yeah. I mean, it's for all the factors you laid out like I was not in my head and all that. But like this team is still really really good. And the one thing that did crystal. Allies for me watching these first two games is like I feel pretty horrible about myself for looking at a series that essentially comes down to Jaanus who is my favorite basketball player alive. Right now versus Horford who is like every basketball nerds favorite basketball player. Live and choosing Horford to win that battle in the end. Like, I don't feel great about that whatsoever. And as I've said, I would love to visit Milwaukee. So no, we want to visit every city you've covered every base. We we've been over that you can't wait hop onto the bandwagon..

"It's gonna hurt the image of that franchise. And you know, maybe they turned around and get a superstar for Anthony Davis. But quite likely when you trade a superstar, you don't get one back, and they're going to struggle year in year out shouldn't the Celtics keeping Jason Tatum out of the lineup. Anybody who could be a free agent shouldn't play in the second half. At some point it'd become insane. And like the players union would get involved these guys to if they want to play in there, and that you know, that they are one of your better players than they should play. That's the thing with JR and mellow. It's like you could argue these reserves that are hell, they're hurting our chances my playing them, no offended those guys, but they're not Anthony Davis level. I I know the Jason Tatum was a joke. But Jason has never said he wants to leave. No, right. And nor has Danny Ainge actually, even come out and said, we're trading Jason Tatum for Davis. Yeah. And they're trying to win a championship. But. I get it. This is a weird scenario anti is to himself this whole thing. And it's ought to see Anthony Davis the villain to some degree because he's not a villain. He is. He doesn't have that type of personality. He'd never has Alvin gentry was on our show in some really he said the first thing that shocked Anthony Davis was he had no entourage around him. He was just him. Just wanna play basketball things have changed. Because of his agency. Yeah. Buddy. Yeah. I mean, it's gonna be fun to watch. Yeah. What the hell? They sit them. How many minutes he plays? I want this start up and take him right out. The really wanna see what the NBA would do that be like you gotta go out there when every jump ball this season, just yank them right away. Yeah. We just took him out. We we didn't. We didn't like what he was giving us that day. What are you talking about you, play twenty seconds? Yeah. Just didn't have it that night. We had to sit him. It was our decision. I think we're really going to see if that old adage of you get injured when you're not trying comes true here because he isn't trying a hundred percent. He's not. He's out there. He's and he's playing basketball. But is yes. Of course, you could see him in his interview after that game on Friday with the SPN..

"They Jason Tatum in the package. Even though you heard the last couple of weeks with the Lakers with coups mauve ball. They can still offer that during the summertime. So I think it was a smart move the pelicans to wait until the summer for the deal, Anthony Davis. So stocked up New Orleans pelicans. I will say it was very smart. Because they got the Lakers to play themselves. That's what happened. Because the Lakers went all in with their poker chips, and the deal was never gonna get done before the deadline because like you said the Celtics couldn't get involved yet because of the rules. So why would you make a deal before you get the best possible package available and get multiple people bidding for a day. And the Lakers went all in man. Now, we want to see how that's going to last the rest of the year with the rumors about Luke Walton. Lebron's is about most of the players on that team. Hey, we'll see how that does pen on out. What you got for me stock number two. All right stock number two is Dany aged the GM the Boston Celtics compare relating to Marquel. Foltz who traded to the Orlando? Magic are two years ago. He passed on the number one pick traded down to number three got the player that he wanted and picked up another asset. And it's not the first time he's made a trade where Kyrie Irving the Brooklyn nets getting all those draft picks, hoping the Celtics rebuild. So when Danny ages made a trade, he's really one the trade by a landslide. So Danny Ainge gets a stock up the number two. Nice. It's gotta make sure it's team doesn't Kelly. Stock.

"I think this is probably the most challenging year coaching from Brad Stevens. As of yet. He has an abundance of talented at abundance of riches, and he's a guy that we've always known made the good great. What is he going to do with great talent right now they have starters right now that are on the bench Gordon Hayward? Jalen brown. I'm scary Terry rosier, they have ventures that are now starting Marcus Morris. Marcus smart, and then they have guys that have solidified their roles, and Kyrie Irving also Jason Tatum and Al Horford, but now coach olives and figure out what's the best midst. What's the best roster? So this is the hardest job Brad Stevens as of yet largely because he has so much talent to juggle. And I think as players are putting out maximum effort is just about putting the pieces of the puzzle. Also, absolutely put it on brass team. Because we've always looked at him as kind of like this whiz kid. We saw last year we cover you urban was out. He saw how this synergy that. The team will move the ball. They will just playing was a unit. What now? You integrate tarry back into the mix a guy who's disapprovingly talented as a eyeso- player. So you almost got two different two different types of.

"I would say undetermined um success in the nba right now as teams than any other time i remembered like this is the league in transition i i wanna make this clear because people in boston it so mad at me i first of all i put this on twitter yesterday i'm gonna say it now to the camera it appears i was wavering on jason tatum i thought that celtics turned the number one pick in the draft which is what they had into the fifth best player in the draft he right now looks like he was the best player in the draft now we'll see when full comes back from injury we'll see all bulb progresses but tatum has been outstanding if not for ben simmons he's you're leading candidate for rookie year long within sent with uh the kitten dennis smith in in dallas pardon me so i wanna make that clear i just think the kyw reese stuff if if we were to take the name away and ceo multi time allstar change teams to the face of a franchise and he's giving you 20 points five assists on 44 percent shooting you would say okay i mean he's been fine but maybe not in when last year he gave you 25 points a game on forty eight percent shooting so i just don't want us to give a disproportionate amount of credit to carry when he can play better than he's been playing flatly and we saw the celtics in two games without him play really well if isaiah thomas was healthy and the sophie said traded for gordon hayward the celtics would still be the best team in the east they would still be very very good would they won thirteen monroe no one can predict that but isaiah kyw ry that trade right there boston they're really talented they got more town than they've had their since they fat pierce garnett in that crew maria as those so i expect them to win i expect don't they have the best record in east at the at the end of the regular season suggesting recap you don't wanna get carried too much credit and you don't want to give brad stevens too much credit so only over the absurd in the top of it.

"If him in jason tatum continue to play the way that they have and they probably won't you'll hit a rookie wall especially tatum was only nineteen years old knows no idea when eighty two games scheduled feels like they'll take their lumps but right now they're playing an extremely high level and it's really urging and when these guys are playing like that i think they have a chance every time they take the court no matter who they're playing and given that three weeks ago we were wondering where they were headed when when gordon hayward went down with an injury it's pretty remarkable see them blame the way they are right now this is i don't know how to feel accepted there's nothing but optimism for the celtics gene this is crazy would we doing being up the mr well you know the pretty fun to watch and i think it goes back to that guy from butler he's as good as anybody who seen in a long time in taking a peace and getting the most out of that particular guy's ability one thinks i really were you really admire about the celtics in stevens when you watch them for prolonged amount of time and not just a couple of weeks went over couple seasons is how he takes a player with an odd set of skills and max is out his ability we saw with isaiah thomas who they built their offense around a fivefoot nine point guard who didn't apps that while but had incredible knack for scorn he's gotten a great seasons out of guys look evan turner featured jordan crawford into a a useful nba player it's it's fun to watch him take various pieces and they don't look like they're going to add up to much of a puzzle but they ended up adding end up adding up to a pretty good basketball team in the end and now he's got probably more talent that had at any point c span here even without hayward so it's a really encouraging time to be following the celtics the fun team to watch it's a smart team and i think you have to feel good about their chances no matter who they're playing.
