    It would be nice to believe that is it just a matter of time.That they will figure it out. But at what point does that become wishful thinking?

    But what could you get in a trade?

    Haven’t watched the entire game but just looked at the box score...both Rozier and Hayward with terrible lines but both have played more minutes than Jaylen Brown. For those watching, can you me why?

    I think the fact that they’re not clearly superior to such teams is kind of the point. This was supposedly a Finals-caliber roster.

    There is no trade that can help the team. People need to let that go.

    I agree with that. But it its not really an embarrassment if you are getting beat by teams that are a few games within your record.

    I don’t know man. This team minus Kyrie and with a one-handed Smart were one game from the Finals last season. A team with Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, and Al Horford should be head and shoulders better than this low seed in the East Nets team.

    Edit: and I’ll add Rozier too. Idk wtf is wrong with him but no one could have expected him to be this useless.

    Which suggest going with what you got, and hoping that-things-come-together.

    This is brutal. Too many cooks in the kitchen, need to shake up this roster.

    I'm just dropping in to say that the Maine Red Claws are too good for Terry Rozier and that I would trade him for a broken stapler.

    They're in the playoffs because the East is awful. They're under .500 and have a negative point differential. Them being closer to the Celtics than the Celtics to the 2 seed is more of a testament to how disappointing this team is.

    Hayward is still working his way back. We collectively had too high expectations for what he could do this fall and perhaps all year. Brown, Tatum and Rozier have all regressed which happens with younger players.

    This team is still dangerous but if they do anything this year, its going to be a function of improvement by the aforementioned struggling young guys or Hayward getting some more confidence.

    Certainly agree with the high expectations. I thought this team was Finals bound and now I certainly don’t have that expectation which is an epic bummer.

    I think Rozier is a special case - HRB nailed it. Last spring he knew he was under contract for another season and also had the keys to the car. This season, his role has changed, his leash is much shorter and its caused his worst habits to surface. The problem for everyone clamoring for a trade is there really is no trade unless Danny wants to give him away. The day Ainge trades players just to get them off the roster is the first time ever.

    This is reminiscent of the 2002 playoff comeback against the Nets, starring the great Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker.

    Can't box the guy out and you foul him and give him free free throws. Fucking terrible.

    I guess the hope is come playoff time they can turn the 12 minutes or so every game where they look like the best team in the league into closer to 48.
