    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    TL is best used defending the worst offensive front court player, so long that he doesn’t make his living behind the 3-pt arc, to allow the best part of his game to shine......off the ball rim protection. Two reasons for this,.....one, he is an ordinary on the ball defender who can be exploited...

    How is it the first time I’m hearing about this? Interesting that TL was one of the guys who lost two inches from 6-10 to 6-8 which is consistent with his draft measurement.

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    Bertans is only 28. I’m going with culture/teammates/losing as the reasons.

    And getting stops down the stretch, blocking shots, etc. Melo is lighting it up on the second unit providing scoring, CJ and Nurkic will return soon........don’t sleep on this team making some noise and being a major 1st round headache for Phoenix or one of the LA teams.

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    I don’t expect Danny to use the TPE based on Wyc’s pointed comments about having better opportunities over the summer. However, I expect some shakeups here as this year is different than others in that this team has underperformed and frankly he has to be feeling pressure from Wyc & Co. to...

    Powell with the take foul to allow Tatum the FT’s for the -8 push......and Tatum fails to support the Celtics backers

    March 4 vs Raptors

    He had 9 months off and no exhibition season. That’s a tough one for a veteran big. He’s come around pretty good for what he is.....a serviceable matchup 5.

    It’s obvious isn’t it? These guys aren’t picking like it’s Ainge and Jerry West......they are picking their buddies and avoiding those they want nothing to do with.

    Boucher is killing us. We aren’t defending 3’s it’s like nobody knew he could shoot.

    “I’m gonna need some size. I’ll take Sabonis.” Ouch Gobert lol.

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    He was measured at 6-9 with shoes at the Combine. It’s always possible he grew an inch since then. Nobody ever gets an “official” measurement after the draft as far as I’ve ever known. They just list whatever number they want to list. That’s how I was listed when I was in college......they asked...

    Yet year after year Foster is graded among the best officials in the league. Why is that?

    Stop hoarding TP(E) - the what should the Celtics do with the TPE thread

    This is where I’m at. I have him as having a terrible floor game but can shoot pretty good. You can find similar type shooters who can play some semblance of defense and able to rebound. Are there any NBA players whose wingspan is 2.5” shorter than their height? His is 2” longer than Isaiah...

    NBA 20/21 season thread

    This piece plays right into the convo from yesterday about TL’s skill set. Gobert has never been a great low post one-on-one defender due to his frame. He’s been decent/good but people confuse this skillet with his overall rim protection against penetration. Like TL, Gobert is at his best when...
