    Kemba reportedly a Knick

    Surprising story for Kemba this year. Didn't foresee him actually getting benched. It really is stunning how many players can go from All-Star to bench in such a short period of time.

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I would think it hurts his career not to be playing. The $47 million he is owed is sunk cost. Paying him NOT to play or paying him to play for another team is fairly irrelevant to Houston. It seems there should be some mechanism to basically allow him to go somewhere else. I'm not saying there...

    I have no idea what sort of abilities John Wall has, but these sort of situations don’t seem quite right to me. If he wouldn’t be able to make an NBA roster, than sure. But if he could, it seems wrong to me to not have him playing somewhere just because you want to tank. They should buy him out...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I think the trade a star for depth concept just doesn't work in the NBA. As someone else mentioned upthread, this is a star league, and you win championships by having the best 5 players on the court. The Celtics need to find another star, not trade one of the two that they have.

    It's interesting to me how much tighter the whole rotation is this season than last. The bottom ~40%+ of the roster gets pretty much zero playing time. And this is with one of our starters out.

    Shams: Celtics "engaged in conversations" with 76ers for Ben Simmons

    Recent injury aside, which certainly seems like a very temporary thing, Brown seems poised to potentially become one of the real stars in the league. He's also signed to a (now) below market contract, in my opinion. Simmons' value seems to be plummeting. That certainly doesn't mean he can't...

    That's a long stretch. He seemed to keep bringing the energy in the 4th, though. He was passing out of the doubles pretty well, although they always seem a little nerve-wracking as a fan since they don't usually look pretty.

    Did Tatum come out at all in the last quarter? It seemed like he must have played the last 10 minutes without a break as I kept looking for him to get a breather. Not a good game for Nesmith - some mistakes and a pretty unlucky foul (that late play he wasn't even looking in the direction of the...

    Jaylen Brown's health (hamstring strain-Nov 6)

    I would change to "Hamstrung by Jaylen's Injury". The double hammy is too on the nose :-)

    Maybe I'm just noticing it more, but I feel like Smart is trying to be unnecessarily cute with his passes. There was a moment in the Orlando game where Smart threw a behind the back pass, I think to JB, that really caught him off guard. He was able to control it, but it sort of seemed like a...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I'm not a big Smart fan, at all, but his ability to come up with clutch defensive plays is pretty amazing - I'd say. Somehow he is able to find a way to come up with huge steals in the last few minutes or a key charge, etc. It seems like he's had quite a few of these this year. Offensively...

    I highly doubt he spoke with Ime and Ime told him that he should call out Tatum to the press. So, either he didn't speak with Ime or he's going against what Ime told him.

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I think Marcus' comments were incredibly stupid. If you have a problem with how your teammate is playing, talk to your teammate in private. If that doesn't work, talk to your coach and he or she can decide whether to confront your teammate about it. Going and complaining to the media is...

    Analysis of Celtics Games, '21-'22 Season

    I'm admittedly a huge JB fan, but I always think it's extremely risky to call out a player in public and in this particular situation, with a player coming back from COVID, seems even more curious. Hopefully, this lights a fire under Brown and no one ever really remembers this. What I'd hate to...
