"Let's bring the rafters to Boston. Let's do it. Let's do it. With. They need a new home Boston. We've had two teams before in a league. Do it. Two straight thoughts just to end it. One Orland, we talked about talked about the bubble. It is amazing that it went off the way that it did and it really only existed. It really happened because Keith Smith of Celtics Plug wrote it into existence, which is frigging phenomenal. Guy was like, hey, why don't they just do it down there road of all why would work NBA star the. Nominal. That's a phenomenal idea. Then they did it really her way in for key to get his do and didn't. Again. Note you know like somebody sent him like something said thanks but that's it. But Disney Disney got one hundred, ninety million dollars from that transaction. So he just he just wrote it into existence and it happened, which is amazing. Guest or now he made made a lot of people a lot of money I. Hope he gets his fair share unbelievable right a number two. We didn't talk about on this podcast we will eventually i. do think you know one of the things to look forward to? That they posted odds for the season in terms of eastern conference and I will save this full discussion for the next one but it was the Milwaukee one in the east of the team most likely make the final followed by the Celtics tied with the nets and I. think that nets dynamic is going to be so interesting. So I do want to get into that in the next podcast. I JUST WANNA leave everybody with this one tweet from joining. podcast bashing the net. Just, I just just a little primer John Hollinger of rights for the athletic. Now had this tweet which I thought was great. It was or I think he said this on a podcast, the nets have Kevin Durant, this is the nets. Everyone's saying they're going to be great next year but any any put it into perspective the nets have Kevin Durant recovering from an Achilles injury kyrie Irving reporting from a shoulder injury and fifteen other players recovering from spending a year with Kyrie Irving. Over Real. I love it. Now, they got the month or trade rumors coming to is coming off of surgeries or the poor bastards who are healthy all year that had this deal with Kyrie Irving for you. We haven't even gone through trade season with them. Yeah and. Basically, said we got to give. You know like. Jared Allen. There but. That's the other thing. One trade one been reported. One trade hasn't been officially done but I guess that's been talked Oh what are the odds? That's the nets? Right who knows. Is that we could go on on them for a while but I wanna get into that in the next one will see there's more NBA news, but we had a ton here..

"Hear them across the Celtics Radio Network always a pleasure having him with us any major takeaways there other than I don't think not that he came out and outright said it I don't think any of us would not trade Ramadan the Celtics. Yeah. Well, you know, I my my sticking point with Andre Drummond is okay. So you bring drum and then okay what problem if you now created for your job? Of now that Gordon Hayward is the one that's out of the building because again, I think the assumption is Gordon goes out Drummond comes in. Well now one of my biggest pet peeves with Boston this year and I'll sneak out fully admit and we'll do this read want to make her end up being a solid player by the end of the year. And in this shutdown. I thought he was terrific during the bubble. I really do. I was very impressed, you know cursed his name throughout the day, the 1920 season, but in the Bible, he was tremendous so I will give him that but Boston definitely needs a backup ball-handler to both Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward gives you that right it gives you for space and which is more valuable than anything right now in the NBA giving, you know, given the fact that Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown on the emergence, right? You want to give them as much florist near operate as possible and the you know, the ability to kick it out to an open shooter is always very nice and Gordon Hayward helps with that geometry. I just don't understand how getting Gordon out and bringing Drummond in doesn't crave. Whole new set of problems also, so you're going to bring in Drummond to take away minutes from Robert Williams. What's the point of that? Right? You don't you want to see what Rob's all about? Like we've seen some progression through the months and through the years. He's been on the team and it's you know, it's captivating. It's enticing right there are moments where I want to yell, you know at Rob through my television about, you know, jumping up when Serge Ibaka fakes from the three-point line, but they're all the things she does when he gets his head above the cylinder and you're like, wow, that's really awesome. You want to see more of that so I wouldn't wanted to tour the the track that Robert Williams is currently on I think it's a bad idea. I understand the Celtics need to find a way to bring some sort of vet in but I need from it to the type of vet..

"Cut off you know that's going to be a whole new lineup. Then it's like you need to listen if you're the celtics and you don't like anybody draft me to figure out a way to get into next year I row because like you said, John they don't have any future I they need to start working some of those trae Guinea to start building some of the future I game because there might be a player whether it's it's not an associate. Designer could be next off season where they might need to have some of those extra assets because some of their player assets aren't that valuable Romeo You know you can go down the line with some of their. Recent that you can't get a whole lot for I. Mean, you're you're going to be giving some pixel him. You're trying to give some away I. think if you can't figure out a way to treat them imagine how little this would matter if they won the frigging coin, flip a couple years ago and just ended up with tyler hero and we'd be like Yeah Gordon can opt out you know. Could add Kevin Durant. It's unbelievable. All right. So May I Jimmy can I change the grand? Chess read it right air seventy sixers to hire Daryl Maury to run their basketball operations it says it right here. How about that? That was a bit of? I. Mean I know people were wondering what was GonNa Happen when Maury left the Hornets I. Didn't think this would happen this quickly this makes sense but really interesting move here. By philly and I think if you're a Boston Fan it's definitely gonNA worry you a little bit because now you feel like this organization that has had the talent and had the pieces and have the assets all this time was just run poorly, and now you've got somebody who might be able to move move the pieces around build the team and Be Competitive. Here after the absolute dumpster fire that we saw in Philly. Last year and into the playoffs and. Really Oh. Let's get initial reactions here to the Maury signing and again I know immediately people are gonNA wonder what it means for the future of embiid and Simmons will kick that around. But first things first is what do you guys think what was your first thought Jimmy Start with you? My first thought was. Out Brand has been completely cut He didn't lose his job. You just have to hand it over to somebody who's going to do a better than him and just like watch what happens my second thought was what's going to happen to either beat or Simmons? Those are the two guys when the sixers know showed in the playoffs everyone said. Sixers have to blow it up. One of these guys has to go and..

"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.

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?

"Celtics fans killed me like whatever in order to me like let's face it. They don't WanNa do this Kemba Walker Tatum Jalen Brown Brown for a good price you got marcus. And later, but you you can't replace him I. Want but if he doesn't often you. Talk. About the Fate audience. Walks. Jimmy must speak. I think. What we should do most likely to least likely scenarios and I feel like it's still unlikely for him to opt out because I think I I think he might do it. Okay. Fine. We talk about what happened but Jimmy rank him now I just. WanNa, say. Sheriff I think the first thing I think from most obstinate for this final year, it's a lot of money You know allows the Celtics thirty four though it could be like twenty six. Twenty four even like they're gonNA take. Dirty forty percent out of the players salaries this year. Look I'm saying that's the best case scenario for the Celtics the opt-out don't you know world not over from Celtic it is. How John? is definitely is joe slash that wants the worst. Out that production walks out the door and you're left with seven million dollars to replace semi in the. You don't know what's going to happen with cancer I mean listen I obviously. KANTER's guy cancer they're gonNA to. Have big have the full emily. Emily Yeah so you prefer to walk in. And, move forward Joe Sway. In that but really beers. You'RE GONNA. Walk in. Doing it what the flipping your. Nari two things happen you tear this up and you sign up for three years. Now you have a salary, you can trade for the next two and three years, which is a at a player who can't possibly replace for the amount of money. You'll have if he walks, it's a no brainer that they would sign him to an extension. It's a no brainer. Under. What price though that's the thing John I mean I think? Auction. Knicks are really that interested but if the up there you willing to see this. Here's the here's the thing I did the math last night. If you sign him the twenty to twenty, four million for this year, the Celtics could actually avoid the luxury tax this year if they trade the thirtieth pick or send it overseas. Just your luxury taxes no but if that matters. Airs. Pay. Pay Luxury taxes pay some taxes pay any. Agree agree but if Then when you pay for like, what is it three years in a row? Even more on top of it there's. Here, but this is. Okay Eighty might care. This is this is Up to win I guarantee you it will care what is wick making owners have professional teams like.

The that's tied to the revenue here they need. As. Much. Revenue as they could possibly generate to make up for probably having at least half if not an entire season without fans, it's going to be a grisly picture next year but we're starting with our man Gordon Hayward who according to a report could take the Al Horford approach calling it an Army Donald. We don't like here that name address to refresh everybody. In case you don't remember what Al Horford did. Everyone assumed to opt in and or play ball tear up is deal and re a new one a team friendly deal because he's Al he's awesome. He loves her here and he didn't, and it almost screwed the Celtics. It ended up being a actually a fortuitous thing that Horford left and they don't have him on the books right now for three or four years but hayward might be looking to do the same thing and this could be bad for a lot of reasons. It's the scary thing there is that the Atlanta Hawks are team the Zakho mentioned on that podcast for this Guy Robson Simmons everybody there bobby marks Bobby..

"I think he's a good fit in some spots. I just don't think it's here. Yeah, the souls do need veteran leadership Jack and that's something that I'm going to want to talk a lot about because I think that's a that's a big deal in terms of where the solvent sorry now the package they're going to have the package but they can get a lot of players. They could take a potentially package and it's not that big of a deal. They gotta make room cuz all these pics they can still have a plethora of Youth to develop that's you know mid to bottom tier but still belongs to an NBA roster and at the same time. Time combines them salaries and and do that. You know, the problem is a lot of questions out there about whether or not they trade Hayward too, so Yeah, yeah, that's true. That's very true. I think that's that's absolutely that's going to be something we're going to talk a lot about the next few days weeks months. I don't know. I'm not sure what the lender going to play again, but we know the draft of the month just about a month from now and so there's at least some certainty wage then, you know, hopefully between now and then we'll have an idea of when everything else is going to happen. But at least at the very least we'll have at least the draft and so that's that'll be off for a month, you know, and then you know, maybe we'll be able to figure out the rest of it. I mean the other piece is the Cantor piece to juror twice kind of reporting in the athletic that expect the cancer is going to try to go elsewhere as well. So in more localized news, I suppose that's probably the bigger story I guess is you know, the fact that 5 million dollars wage. And you know and I got impatient a damn right? I mean they gotta like work on that. Yeah, he's he's getting a max deal right now for sure. There's no question. There's no question often backed out and he's going to get Rose rule stuff. And so, you know, I think he's he's I can't imagine that goes any other way than that. I think it's really about the the other pieces and then I mean, let's just just throw out since we're talking all over the map here, right? If if they do come back in somewhere between Christmas and Martin Luther King Day, right? That's kind of a window they're talking about right now. Can you really see the Celtics making major systemic changes to their roster, you know taking away Gordon Hayward and trying to bring in life, you know you let's talk about the old Depot and and you know that deal, you know with with Indiana Myles Turner and Oladipo. I mean, is that okay?.

Danny Ainge's Celtics Conundrum
"The logical question though, and he got into this a lot with Bob and we got his thoughts. But obviously I want yours as well. You know, there are only so many options really that Danny Ainge has because of just the economic setup of this month. Stir, you know, it's very top-heavy salary cap wise young guys, you know, you can all right fine. So you don't bring back like an enes Kanter not a young guy but a cheap guy, you know, that's that's not going to give you all that much flexibility back. So it's really do you want to trade Marcus Smart, which I don't think anybody wants to do or do you want to move off of Gordon Hayward in some way shape or form now? He has the power which is often for that 34 + million dollars next year or he could opt out do what everyone thought was going to happen with Al Horford last year, which is re-signed him, you know more years lower aav average wage will value or you know option three is obviously you trade the guy. I don't think there's a scenario in which he just hops out and doesn't return I don't believe that anyway coming off the injury, maybe if he had had a bought a strong healthy season and great playoff run sure, but that wasn't the reality. So it's it's kind of a b and c with Gordon, but you know Brown who has just resigned isn't going anywhere. Tatum's going to get his contract cambuslang. In anywhere, so it's sort of adjusts, you know, your your salary cap position as a results to Hayward or you kind of bring back everybody and you just look to cherry-pick some depth off that balance like you're talking about right or or is there something I'm missing? Yeah. No, I mean and that's the other part of it is in you mentioned Caden pretty extensively Jaylen Brown has also shown he can be foundational second piece that goes he's turning twenty-four I think in like two weeks to have another player like that who and let's face it. The Celtics are pretty fortunate like the wage and they gave him he would Be worth a little more right now. She was going into like restricted free agency. So in addition to those guys being pieces you hope and assume they're both going to get them like camber is what can build which is, you know, an All-Star starters really good. Obviously your concerns about his knee. Hopefully that there's up but with Tatum and Jaylen there's still some there's still a level there. You think if you're if you're a self extension you hope so maybe that's what it takes to kind of get over the hump and you talk about Hayward. Obviously, I know fans are kind of disenchanted with them. He's had some just brutal block really like it's not like these injuries you suffering because he's like frail or like, you know, like just just brutal brutal luck. But off this year when he was healthy like last year when he was healthy. He was still not himself. It was clear this year when he was healthy looked really good. He was one of the best players and I think it was encouraging birth. You there aren't a lot of Gordon hayward's out there. We talked about like moving off of Gordon Hayward like he's back and playing like he's capable. That's a pretty big asset to have particularly. If you're putting them alongside our guys like Jason jail and who were still on their uptrend?
Interview with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
"The game, the structure, the style of the game that you played back to the basket center right trying to get high percentage shots closer to the basket that game has been completely forgotten, and there's very few. There's nobody who plays the center position the way you did with the back to the basket and it's like try to get the highest value shots the furthest away. But three pointers as much as you can does this style interest you disinterested you look down on it. You say you don't know how to play the game properly. Well, you know there, there are different theories about how to play the game but I think getting high percentage shots really makes a lot of sense, but it also has to dovetail with your defensive strategy also. So a great team like the Bill Russell. F- Celtics. Bill was able to to stymie any shots around the hoop and. His team. Would run and get high percentage shots down down court, and that was a winning strategy era. I mean, nobody's playing center. The way you did that is totally gone now. I think. So but that doesn't mean that someone cat had that type of skill and still come in effect the game. In a meaningful way, we talked earlier today. One of the things you said, the eighty five finals against the Celtics was one of your most important moments as a player. One of your crowning moments as a player you were the. MVP that year you guys won the Lakers one but you had to go through the Memorial Day massacre where you guys got crushed by like forty points a game over in the middle of third order and a down moment and I lived in Boston at that moment, it looked like are going to go on to destroy them. How did you come back to win and why do you think of that as one of your crowning moments as a player that series? Well I think that? What happened to me personally in that series was. Once, we made it into the finals I kind of relaxed. and. So I went into that first game thinking that. The worst is over and you know the the worst was yet to happen. So. It kind of woke me up and made me realize that I had to kick my game up a couple of levels in order to. Finish off what we started out to do because we lost. In eighty four to the Celtics and Gabe a game away. And that ended up being the the crucial game. How could you go into? A series against the Celtics who had Larry Bird who series plate you know clearly one of the great players of that time how you Gonna Like Oh, we got this. No. I didn't think that we got this but for me personally, I figured I've done my job where we're in the finals. Things. Think things will be alright and they work. One. Of the one of the chapters, one of the parts of the book that I really thought was really interesting. You talk about athletes and what they must do with how they have role models at the happy aware that they are role models and you say we can't pretend athletes are influencing our children's thinking and behavior. So we must demand higher standards from them like it or not college and Professional Sports. Machines are turning them into role models, and if they aren't willing to accept that responsibility as part of the contract, then they should seek another profession. Strong position. A little bit about why you feel that way when you went through that life right superstar High School Athlete College, Athlete, and you know the way that superstar athletes from a teen age are coddled. They are given you know love for their athletics points for their character. Society is not training them to be role models, but then they become big college players big prosed and we expect them to be role models. Are they even ready for that? I don't know you know for me. Being a black American and in the era that I grew up in all black. realized. That They would be judged by the actions of. Any problem. Black Person. And so. That burden. Was something that that you assumed. Soon, as you've got to do anything in a in a prominent fashion, you assume that burden because you knew that. All black people would be. Judged on whatever it was that you did and he's screwed up A. Set, the race. I mean that's absolutely right and you talk about that I came to realize that the lew alcindor that for the younger folk that was his name forty, fifty years ago the lew alcindor everyone was cheering. Was it really the person they wanted to be they wanted me to be the clean cut example of racial equality the poster boy for anybody from any background regardless of race religion or economic standing could become an American success story to them. I was living proof that racism was a mythological beast like Jack. Elope when when the audience is feeling like that right I assume the media is part of it. How do you? How do you rebel against that? Well. You just have to show them that they're wrong and. That that is not the case, there's a whole lot that has to be done. I into earlier.

Sources -- Doc Rivers agrees to five-year deal to coach Philadelphia 76ers
"That brings us to the Philadelphia Seventy sixers very quickly. This deal comes together Asia, was your Aska dropping the bomb. It seems like it took about two minutes. The sixers are interested in Doc rivers have a phone call great year available done twenty one seasons one tuttle with the Celtics coach of the magic and the clippers as well. Some people love because he's a great communicator and maybe he's the guy that can motivate embiid and Simmons the knock against him is that maybe he's a little bit overrated. Too much of a players coach, he's not tough enough and didn't get it done with the clippers. He's a lot of three one leads by the way he's blown in the playoffs, your thoughts doc running your sixers. You know I think you know I initially my reaction is I think doc is a little bit overblown as a coach You know I'm not sure I'm not sure you know how? Intense he is and where where he'll really take the team to but I do know this. I think he's a big figure and I think he's bigger than the two players at the sixers have to have on their team Simmons and beat doc is you know they can't challenge doc because docs bigger than they are even docs one he's played. He's done everything that the sixers wanted. So there's no more excuses for embiid. There's no more excuses for. SIDS, they have to kind of either buck up where they're going to have to figure out what they're gonNA do plus I think at least they brought somebody in from the outside that'll try to let them know that this is the way we're going to have to play, and this is what we have to do with our team. So you know they needed a big personality I would have preferred billy Donovan data didn't go in that direction because I think they probably thought Billy Donovan would be too hard ass on them, which is what I think they need but they got somebody that I think brings them some cachet and some clout and some real real. Respect that the players just can't walk over and they can't run to the owner. So at the end of the day that the balances I look at it, I'm okay with it I like it better than Mike Dantonio. I wasn't sure how that was ever GonNa Work I. Know Embiid I was talking to people in the NBA and they said embiid really wanted to Tony I didn't know how that was going to work but. I'll take it i. mean you know one thing in another month I'll be back full force for you know thinking they're going to win another title again right now I'm in a depression state I'll come out of it eventually and then I'll be fine and I'll be pretend like nothing happened I'm an idiot can I tell you

Miami Heat's Goran Dragic, Bam Adebayo exit with injuries in loss to Los Angeles Lakers

There's nobody cloaks they made eleven threes in the first half, and at times you felt Miami's intensity defensively laps. Now they battled with injuries to Bam and Goren drugs I understand that. But when a Lakers may shots kentavious pope was shooting lights out Danny, green shot the ball. Well, AD was making threes and one side happens the game is over because then it opens up the paint for ad and Lebron James to attack and that's how both those guys end up having huge night's loss and that's the thing about it especially out in La when they put this team together one of the biggest. Things kept saying everybody and you notice Jay will cover the NBA on NBA down is that where are the shooter's Lebron James Ad but where the shooters there was no real of confidence in the Greens in the peas in those guys to take to be a consistent three point shooting team because when you look historically on Lebron James Teens, he's always had pure shooters around him and everybody was questioning what would that look like but they it to be on the playoffs I mean, what can you say they are right in front of you last night and I can say this if there's no Gordon dragoj on the floor if there is no Bam out of by on the floor. It's over. This thing is over, it's easily over. You could actually make a debate that it would be over even if they were on the floor well, there's no debating. Just. Say Gordon Rockets at. Times during Boston Celtics series he was their best player on the floor. Absolutely. We're Bam, right. So now you take those two guys out of the question only guy that can stop the Lakers to some degree from upfront right from getting offense rebound and things of that sort but he's not in the game you have Kelly Olympic Meyers Leonard hasn't played in a long time. There's really no chance and by the way you have Jimmy Butler who rolled his ankle and his knee twice last night. Yeah, and continue to try to play.

The Los Angeles Clippers Have Fired Doc Rivers
"Another myth another legend was fired Bob and I don't you were shocked as I was I, didn't see this coming where Doc rivers we had on the podcast you and I are both huge fans of doc as a human being as a coach. I don't. I. Don't know where I stand right now. Obviously, he is blown some big leads the latest being one in the bubble. Denver and with a team that let's face it. Steve. Balmer paid doc rivers big money to win a championship not not be eliminated by the Denver Nuggets in the in the western conference semifinals so Valid or not valid to let doc rivers go. I knew that we all knew that losing another three to one was not a good thing to have on on anyone's resume to do it twice in. Three years. And the do it with this owner as you said, who invested the overpaid for the team I think even by modern standards that teams are worthy he he got a little giddy with his two billion dollar plus purchase of the clippers the Lakers we could see but not the clippers. So okay, he's invested in this and I worried about it a little bit but I didn't think it would happen. I thought it was a possibility of Steve Bomber angry. But, I, thought it was an of course couching it. It's mutual ha you know coming out of the usual walk away from that money it's the modern. Thing to do that say it's mutual nationally I felt badly because I am very proprietary to a doctor and I have communicate with him already. But. It's understandable that an owner. Successful businessman. Odyssey's bomber is a highly successful with that investment. I I don't know what I don't know Jeff is the level of his own personal basketball acumen. I don't know how much he thinks. He knows he knows more doesn't knows more than that part I don't know you know. Here's what I'll tell you about. Here's what I'll tell you I. Don't think this was all Steve. Balmer. My guess is Jerry West who they pay a ton of money as a consultant. Okay. As a consultant. Yeah. Good point is Jerry West played a significant. In this move and now the question will be. What what's next in the big thing with doc and you and I know this we've been around enough. Great human being great communicator. But the biggest words that you would hear from players about doc dating back to the Celtics was a little bit of a Country Club, right? It's it's easy doctors a practice much. Older players veterans love, them. Again it's where you want to go to and the latter part of your. Extend Your career. and You wonder if that played a huge part here because certainly the clippers didn't look like there were in tiptop condition in the bubble weather. It was Knox fault whether it's back that mantras Harrow had a death in the family and didn't come into the bubble too late whether it's a fact that Lou Williams left the bubble and came back the Patrick Beverley. There were there were a lot of issues. But ultimately. It. Probably does follow on doc in a sense that you had the pieces you had the pieces. You shouldn't be watching if you're the clippers, you can't be watching the Los Angeles Lakers right now compete for

The end of the year, there were some bright spots, Jalen. Brown played pretty well on Sunday night. He had twenty six points in only seventeen shots on scale. Few things stood out. As you mentioned, Daniel Types really struggled to guard Bam out of bio during that crucial stretch in the fourth quarter and then Gordon Hayward I thought he came off a significant injury. He left the bubble for the birth of his child on scale. He looked a little sub part of me. He wasn't quite as energetic locked himself on Sunday night and I think the Celtics needed him to be that in order to have a chance to beat this Miami.

"He still thinks the Celtics are going to win this series and he also believes that same energy and effort was just fine and game for that that the players are wrong about what they said. Can I can I can I say what? Okay, so welcome. Thank you. I don't exactly think that they're wrong. Like I think to me it's a matter of focus and not energy. Can I give you some stats, please? Sure. I got stats. Okay. Well someone can be repaired to the show good. Yeah. So like against Toronto that you want to keep them out of transition. They're not a great offense unless they get out in transition and you want to make sure you're keeping them away from the rim, right? Like these are things that we would say are like obviously true. just want to give you so game three. We let them get out in transition 21% of their position. And in-game for that number goes down to 5% in game three thirty-eight percent of their shots were at The Rim that number is down to 23% in game four track. Basically, what we did to them in game four is make them take a ton of non Corner threes and they made a ton of them. And so like I think there's some stuff to look at Faith effort. I think like Toronto's ability to get offensive rebounds killed us in that game game four. And I think I think there's like maybe a lack of focus off in certain areas, but I think in terms of like of following the game plan that they're trying to follow I think they did a way better job in game four of forcing the shots. They want to force wage. They also the Celtics did a good job of getting to the rim a lot themselves. They were like really good at getting to the rim and in the mid-range. They just didn't make threes and I think home You know if this is a game where like where they make like three more 3-pointers out of 35 attempts, we're talking about like a close win and nobody's complaining about their efforts. So I just I don't know get a little frustrated when the conversation turns to effort. I think we mean like they blew some assignments because their heads are in the wrong place and I definitely have to clean that stuff up. But to me if they clean up the offensive rebounding thing that they're they're going to win. They're the better team something that we did not talk about wage scary just a billion other things that we hit on wouldn't have time for this one kept him long as it is guy was way too nice to us, but I try to catch a bus and go to Miami Heat game..

"So it's really been a more if you want to call it a trend which I wouldn't it's been more recently. Obviously when he was getting worked back in but he's long past being worked back in at this stage of the game as we know. Yeah. I think he's obviously a very very key component either. He's a guy and he needs to make plays. I mean this team has more quote. I don't know if you want to call it star power Talent like you've got them. You got Walker you got brown like you got three guys who can make big plays and then you got smart who's a wild card but you've gotta have guys they've got a click and they've got birth. And it got to be active and they've got to be how I put it like engaged. I don't think Kimba was engaged and I don't know why in gain for it just seemed like he wasn't there and smart, you know, he's gotta okay, like he had a really big game two, he saved him but he's gotta start making these defensive place. I'm not talking about tackling guys and getting bad fouls and getting illegal. Like what was a key? So keep the keep possession the fourth quarter. He got an illegal pick up, um on Van Fleet like near the sideline like mystifying fouls like that. Like they need to have them in gauge with and getting five and they need to come out and make a statement. They can't fall behind 18 to 8. Like it's just like they can't We've already given Toronto all the confidence. They need you can't lay down because if you lay down and they lose two more games, like I don't know what to say about this song current team. Everyone said they're different after the Milwaukee debacle if they lose this series and 6 and they then and you're looking at the the roadmap. Okay, Miami's the only team to get through and they and they match up well with Miami if the finals are here, the finals are attainable. Okay, it's Milwaukee gets knocked out to make an improbable comeback from a 3-0 deficit. We can they match up well with the heat it is there for the taking to get the NBA finals and then you take your chances their scope. This this is big. This isn't next year long wait, you know, well, you've you signed Kim before this year, you know, you got rid of certain guys you made all these adjustments like this is one of the years and the East is open like oh this is the time no more next year no more Memphis pit. I'm tired of hearing about the Memphis pit. Let's if you're the Celtics like let's do this. Now off as far as I think they have to that mentality. This is our time. Last year was Toronto's time. This is our time and in but if you think that they're a better team if you think that that you're not capable of doing well against the zone and then I guess just give it to him cuz last night I felt like they just felt like oh man were not hitting the threes like you God. More than shoot threes you guys who can get them contribute more.

"For your Gary Washburn talk and sees of course and Gary, you know, just building on what you were just talked about in part the rotations and just walking for look liking 3 to a certain extent as well as we kind of spin that into game five because naturally the team still doesn't have Gordon Hayward. I know he's coming back to the bubble soon, but he's not going to be available for a little while and seizures, you know, too clearly miss him. Jaylen Brown has not been himself by any extent your guy Adam himmelsbach your colleague there at the globe noted in one of his observation that 548 Jalen on 3-pointers in game one against Philly since then 13 of 51 in seven playoff games. We know we missed his first nine out of the shoot back in game four or Jayson Tatum was not himself. You can only rely on Marcus Smart to a certain degree offensively and Kemba Walker. This is kind of my my biggest gripe with in that game in such a winnable game is the Kemba Walker. This happens occasionally but not in the playoffs and not the game like this just it shouldn't happen. You only took nine shots and I don't understand how quite frankly and I know to a certain age Brad Stevens going to go out and let us guys play. I don't understand how that even is something the coaching staff. Let's happen. You know how or Kemba who how is how was sort of resourceful internally as he is to not know? Hey instinctively. I need to go out and attempt at least to give my team and other option to take over this game offensively as he is done many times in the past. I was just looking it up regular season this year if my numbers are right cuz I was kind of scanning it as we've all been talking but 6 and 4, I believe this year from the Celtics their record when Campbell only takes about nine shots or less and I think one or two of those games, he was knocked out early due to injury in a playoff game and again spinning.

"Let's start with the c as though personally. I imagine a lot of faith feel the same way. I'm not over the game three laws quite frankly. In fact game for doesn't sting nearly as much to me as game 3 does just because the way that thing ended and defensive lapses that happened there at the end and Thursdays will Mark a smart seem to be the only one that knew exactly what was going on and you know where Jaylen or ties or anyone else had to go in that moment to defend OG on on a newbie on a Novia who wage obviously wouldn't and hit that winning three-pointer, but you know, it happens but then the impact of game 3 on game for where the Celtics and I know they came out after the fact Kemba Walker Jayson Tatum guys talking about. Hey, we didn't play hard enough. We didn't play, you know as energetic as the other side. Did you wrote about the lack of Desire from the C's as well in that game and wage? You know, maybe it's semantics at a certain point to you know, some of these default cliches the players rely upon after a loss. I think what it just boils down to is obviously the Raptors were out better. It were better. They outplayed them. They you know, they played smarter than the Celtics did in that game how surprising was it to you at? The Celtics came out the way they didn't perform the way they did in the wake of game three. Well, I don't think that's as much like the way they came out. I thought they were okay, you know, I mean, I thought the first half was okay. I thought a big play. I mean there's this series in this this in the last two games a bit of Sears of little things that have added up to big things. Like I thought the end of first half or the Celtics had they had made a run shimmy head of three made a layup instruments for seven straight points and may were had the ball Up 3 and with the ball..

The Celtics will never be scooped. You know they came up where to hire him that there was no leak. There was no clue and now the extension is out there at which I think for the second time I believe the first time around. This was the case as well for the second time. No leaks nothing like. You know put the the tweet out about the Brad Stevens extension after the Celtics had already announced it the sees they keep everything drilled down to silence as it concerns Brad Stevens so that in mind people are probably wondering. All right. Well, we'd like them around forever. But how long is he gonNA stick around? Do you have any sense of the terms of the deal? And do not have any sense. I can try and reach out to his wife who is also his lawyer slash agent that is the reason his tracy that is the reason that this doesn't come out I. Think it's because it doesn't have to go through any other sources said, this was discussed before he even left for the bubble basically it's tracy reading over the contract letting him know anything that sticks out and then it's a done deal. So yes, I. Think no question. This is a foregone conclusion. The Celtics are clearly in great hands when it comes to XS and Os, but also a culture, which is a big thing that any pointed out in the Celtics Statement and fun fact Brad and I started the exact same season..

One morning I didn't really remember how it got there Evan. Are you accused guide absolutely all right I'm from I'm from upstate new. York I'm from near them? Accuse or fan I didn't go there. But Quick Chris Joseph Story so when he was with the Celtics. We went over to Malang. We walked into the court and from one of the Games and there was this group of people who are all wearing syracuse stop. This is Italian people. That were wearing Chris Joseph. Syracuse, Paraphernalia, I was standing there with him and I was A. Did you see this over here and he's like I didn't know the Syracuse. Fans were were over in Italy but yet. Regularly Watch out on the court. Their Chances Name and a bunch of people at Syracuse Jerseys on in wearing orange hats, and I'm like. Where did this come from? I did not expect this from from Italy. I didn't know syrupy a thing over here. I appreciate everybody rapid at thought that makes me feel good. GotTa, get that orange out mark. We're going to let you go, I. Don't have it in front of me once the first preseason game at this point. Riday, so we can't call them preseason games. Okay, yeah, or re restart exhibition game. What?

Sunday afternoon, so got a couple of them coming up for the weekend live basketball..

"That's I'm fighting. You obviously mentioned two thousand eight before I let you go. Is there an equivalent to obviously what ESPN? And the Bulls and everybody and it was very cool Adam silver when he was an executive at NBA. Entertainment is actually the one that green lit them having that behind the scenes documentary crew all the way back in the late nineties. That did this and obviously commissioner now is there. An equivalent You know kind of documentary that that could be featured the celtics that could be put together. Maybe it's a in years from now. It's based around the new big three era. Maybe it goes back and it's the the original big three era may be kind of already exists with the documentaries that NBC sports. Boston is put out over the last few years. Is What do you think is? Is there some time period that you think could be I duNno remembered and produced in the same way that this whole thing will be i. think the team in the new big three are certainly could be a wouldn't be on that scale, and the NBC Boston one eight I I think the only problem with documentaries. Anyone who's ever tried to do, we'll tell you that time goes by and the stories change a little bit, so the sooner it comes out after it happened. Maybe I don't say the less the less relevant it. It is, but it's it's hard within the context of you know short period of time to sort of tell all the tell all the stories. There are a lot of things it's impossible to do a perfect documentary because everyone is watching, it goes. Oh, but what about the time knows have? What about the time that this happened? And that? Oh Celtics documentary in Jim Aberdare on those guys. Put together this great, but could you could that have been four or five times longer. As someone who was yeah on those buses on those planes and Sat through the year the year before when? Now, I've always I've always sort of prepared for this interview. My whole life but All you need to know about two thousand, seven and two thousand eight for the Celtics, and the greatest one season turn around, maybe in the history of sports. Is that a two thousand seven? The Celtics starting off. Guard was Allan Ray. And a year later. It was right Allie. That's really all you need. Is that the poetry of that? What those two years were, and that the thing was over. You know you don't get the pick. And it was. It was done. It just really felt hopeless and I. Think maybe this is a good time to remember when things seem hopeless. They never they never truly are and something I've always said, and maybe it applies to all of our lives right now. Is that when you are winning? It seems like you will never lose again when you are losing. It feels like you will never win again, but it always. Eventually evens out and there are going to.

"Right and do that in a month. Which means you wouldn't have to start until August I. Maybe even later. Which means essentially the reason I bring that up. That example is people are if there's a drop dead date Adam I don't think that drop dead date for the season is until July. And it's the middle of April right now, and it's been five six weeks in this awful, but I don't believe we are halfway yet between when this started and what a quote unquote drop dead date would be. For this season. Let's say they resume. Let's be optimistic just because I think everyone needs a little bit of optimism, which team and obviously the Celtics are included in this. Which team do you think is most fitted by this? Break this layoff? Where everyone's in the same boat, you know injured guys are getting healthier. Nobody can train the same way Jason Tatum has talked about how he doesn't even have a hoop at his house. He picked up a basketball in a month. Which team has benefited the most by this? Which team is hurt the most by this well Lemay answer your optimism with pessimism. It's probably the sixers. Sort of restart and after the Celtics play, and what could be a very short first round, obviously I think taking to deep dive into this, and you could say well Lebron be rested. It's why says to great year this year because he barely played last year after playing thousands of minutes every few for so many years, Lebron's basically coming off a year off. Which is why he's been so good and it's been the second best player you know in the NBA this year I think that it's going to be wild I. Think the. The seating isn't going to matter. It's going to be a wide open tournament I think there are teams that probably talk about the teams that would be in few rights in the playoffs. Probably teams like Brooklyn that would be saying. Wait a minute, somebody want hey, PORTLAND! If you want our spot, come take it because we didn't want to be in the playoffs to begin with I i. think people want content I think they will be as we go farther along this prediction on make I. Think there'll be more and more people saying. Don't bother with it a main. It's going to be such an asterisk thing in such a weird thing anyway. I think that number will increase, but just to finish the point earlier about these next season, being interrupted and starting late in y effect two seasons. Here's the point. You want to start next season late. That is a good thing to start next season late because. Wherever we are in our.

"To you'll Las Vegas or anywhere? I go and I always feel a little bit like crap. After I get off the plane, these guys live on planes, and and I know their private planes for the most part and their. You know a lot of teams not own their own plane east. East Nice, but it's still it's a tough environment, and then you know fan interaction, and those kind of things, and then we see other guys who are just blatantly disregarding what they've been told, and they're up in the crowd, taking pictures and high five and everybody under the Sun, and you know so. It's you know it's one of those things where I think you know. I was back the vast majority of these guys in their early to mid twenties, and when you're in your early to mid twenty, you're invincible, right I never get sick I you know I can run all day and I'm fine, and and maybe the mindset, but I think we're in. Change a little bit with the way it looks here the product as far as the presentation part of it. Going forward at least probably for the remainder, maybe this regular season. Last thing we're going to talk about here and It doesn't really go into natural order. I would have done it earlier except I deliberately thinking of you, the listener, and all the Celtics fans that are tired of even hearing the name Kyrie Irving and the bashing that goes along with that, and oftentimes out of my mouth or on twitter. Wherever else that's fine. I saved for the end. We're not doing anymore Celtic stuff. This will now be Kyri for the next couple of minutes, so if you WANNA turn, show off, turned the show off. That is totally up to you, but the nets fired head coach Kenny Atkinson royally screwed as far as I'm concerned. Concerned because he was one of the best coaches in the NBA last year, total chemistry shift with the turnover over the course of the off season and the moves they had to make in order to bring in that three headed monster of Kyrie Irving Kevin Durant. De'andre Jordan Irving of course as we know only played twenty games this year and then shutdown surgery durant has not played all year, but he is kind of lurked in the background, and then deandre Jordan has played, but not well, and here's what Jordan said in strongly disputing the notion that Irving in durant influence the decision for Atkinson to go the career, but you know Wilson's a new player. Garrett Temple's new player. You know we're all new players, so if you GONNA say new players put it all eight new players like whatever you saying. What reports harbor so okay I think all of that is B S. it's I just I. I know there's some reporting that start to come out of this and we don't know the exact story just yet and maybe Kenny Atkinson is breathing a giant sign of relief that you know that he is no longer.

"Those one of those guys Kinda pull the no show goes missing. Well because you brought it up. If the sixers are the sixth seed, selves finish as the third seed. Do you see that as a problem for Boston I don get? If let's say both sides come in healthy I, don't I? I, think the Celtics can beat them. I think I go back to before the season. I asked the opposing coach I said. Hey, how's Boston GonNa Defend, Philly? They're looking at the of four times. Then at some point, you assume they're going to have to go through each other in the playoffs. Only walk through a few things that they could do. But what he left me with which is stuck with me and it's proven to be true when they have played each other, he said. Philadelphia has to guard them to. And how are they? GonNa Guard the Celtics now that was one out Horford was definitely going to be in the starting five, and who knows what that will look like the time we get to a potential playoff series, but or for devotees gonNA defend one of 'em, favorite or Brown. That's that's I. Mean Nothing has shown me that Al Horford it's GonNa. Be Up to that task, and that's that's why I think Boston what they do better in playoff series, which is why they have advanced outside of last season's debacle while they advanced further than I think most people expected is Brad. Stevens is able to game plan. He finds an attack point for an opponent where we're GONNA. GonNa go at this guy over and over and over and over again if you take him out damn what we're. GonNa do is we're going to find the next guy and they will bleed. Those mismatches matches for everything. They can get out of our and we know that they're going to be. If everybody's there, they're going to be solid defensively and tells us that there they they have always been. So I'm not I'm not overly worried about that. Match up I. Think embiid yet. He maybe averages thirty thirty five points a game for the series, but I don't think they're overly concerned about that house. Really going to get to the other sixty seventy points that they're going to need to win. That's what Boston's GonNa be focused on taking away on. That does the fact that Boston spent so much? This year banged up. Serve as another example of why the team really can't afford to. To rest guys down the stretch. I mean from the standpoint chasing the two seat. Obviously forget it, but also there's chemistry and you brought this up earlier. The key guys have barely been on the floor together this year. Yeah, no one hundred percent. They gotTA play it out. You know seating reasons, not not that just to get those minutes together. It's also reason why want anybody jumps? No, you get them in your mansion because I see him just like assuming mind, why did he? Do anything nowadays. He's on a go. Get somebody. There's part of me I I. Understand. Who did you want him to get people to stop with the Jamal Crawford stuff? There's a reasonable Crawford's out of the League and was barely in the league last year. He was relegated to the end of the Phoenix Suns Bench. Like I love Jamal Crawford, but he's just he's done..

"Think they key so much their offense production off of getting good defensive plays, and what we've seen in these handful games is you have now multiple players from these teams that have just Kinda beat the Celtics almost singlehandedly I. Guess as easiest way can put a camera verb went crazy and went on Personal Westbrook Colin Section the Game Boston one, but he went on Mike Conway and then Chris Paul last night. Chris Paul in yesterday's game. Sunday we go to wherever he wanted on the Ford now he's Chris Paul, but you would think the Celtics should be able to control that a little bit. That was you know that's what was disappointing and then when they can't get those stops, I think they put more pressure on themselves. Happy get a score every time down. I think that's when you start to see guys. Maybe a little bit out of good. Ball Movement player movement offense. The C. is trying to do IT A. A little bit too much themselves, and that's where it all breaks down for them, so I think it's problems. Defensively lead to problems offensively. Maybe the answer is what we just discussed, but because of course you do the popular takeaway columns for Celtics blog after each and every game, and you know it's it's always more fun when they're positive takeaways, the negative, although we were talking a little bit off air about the fan base, and I think it's sort of the nature of fans. In any market by the way, not just celtics, fans or anything, but it's it's more typical it's it's part of the human essence as a sports fan to complain when things are bad than to celebrate when things are good, so you tend to get more reaction out of the negatives, so in the spirit of a negative, what is the biggest flaw right now as a team and you can't say lack of health obviously. Oh Man. You took easy one right off the. no I think it's. toy I I'M GONNA Kinda? I'm GONNA cheat a little bit here because they think it's somewhat created from the lack out, but it'll. Help it's? It's I? Don't think they really know who they are league games, I think because you haven't had enough time with those five. Kinda keys guys tatum Hayward, Smart Walker and Brown on the court together late in those games. I think that they they just they're. They're still a little bit of uncertainty to art. Should we differ to Kemba because he's the vet who has done this? A million times or do we let the kids who are obviously a future? This thing we'd us well hayward actually in there tonight. Go on. Maybe he should be the guy, and then we all know Marcus. Smart's never gonNa shy away from taking a big shot late in the game himself..

"Losses in four or five overall double digit leads in all those Games Boston Blue Against Oklahoma, city Utah, Brooklyn and Houston, and in many cases, leads of seventeen eighteen, even twenty one points. It's been frustrating another edition of Celtics. Beat Adam Kaufman here with you and thank you for tuning in thanks also for just joining us while things are getting a little hairy right. Right now I. Wish I had better news, but closing games has become a real problem for this Celtics team with nineteen games left in the regular season, and flailing hopes at landing the second seed in the Eastern Conference now three game deficit behind those raptors now to be fair, Jalen Brown he's out with a hamstring injury Gordon Hayward Jason, Tatum, they've missed some time. Kemba Walker as well. He's still clearly not right, so the sees far from. From being one hundred percent overall, but these are still games. You need to win when you jump out. Those huge leads like I talked about Marcus Smart. His foul on carousel averted the regulation. The Nets lost just inexcusable, and then the thunder game most recently last night, and I was in the building for this just given away when Kemba Dennis Schroder to take that ball to strip. It away delivers the go ahead, layup and Walker all you. You had to do all he had to do was hold the ball and way to fouled. That's it so pair of just really really immensely frustrating losses and well. Let's hear Brad. Stevens Marcus Smart Kemba Walker Gordon Hayward all trying to cheer us up just a little bit. You can feel like you're on top of the world one week, and you can feel like the sky's falling the next, and that's the hardest part about the NBA. The way it goes, you know we're in a way right now. Where we just don't sustain it the way that we know we can't well. I don't know what's going on out there like we. We let other teams pressure. Take.
