    NBA 20/21 season thread

    Rumors Brooklyn is in the lead. I get why anyone would want to go there, and I guess he can still play a bit (ground-bound as he is) but that is a bit of an odd fit in my mind...

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

    I think that's what he is. The questions are about his perimeter defense against other stretch 4s, and it is not good. But I think that's where you plan to play him, personally. I think occasionally at the 5 against specific teams, but not a primary role or use especially given Celts 5s in...

    "Spot and Choose": new proposal for how overtime works

    The fact Belichick didn't do this should tell you there is more to it, though....he is completely unconcerned with what anyone will say. I think the flaw in the above is that the increase in points for the team recovering where they would is too large for the small chance you recover to be...

    March 2 vs Clippers

    That call is a joke—total dive after being beat in the replay.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    But the guys he put in did not play well--that is why several are asking about Nesmith. I have to assume that Brad has a theory for why he's not playing Nesmith. What we've seen on the court does not suggest (eye-test or statistically) that he is less impactful than the guys getting...

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    From a metrics perspective, acknowledging gaps due to sample size/matchups—Nesmith has been better than Green, Grant, and essentially same as Semi by RPM so whether or not it is reasonable to say he has been “terrible” it doesn’t really explain it given the alternatives have been worse. Those...

    Well that was a pleasant surprise

    No idea how you justify that review, they can’t call a foul. But, NBA replay!

    February 28 vs Wizards

    Without Smart they have zero answer for Beal. Sad to watch

    Clearly! Kidding aside the ball movement and motion is what makes it work

    February 28 vs Wizards

    Nesmith isn’t a better player right now—though he does more things. But he has a chance to matter this year by playoffs and none of Grant, Green, or Semi do. That’s why I’d play him, though I acknowledge Brad has gone into win-now mode last few games understandably

    The officiating tonight is worse than the Celtics bench

    Weak foul

    February 28 vs Wizards

    I agree. The theory on Green is he’ll make Beal wrk but he’s so bad offensively it doesn’t work ultimately.

    Sadly not relative to Green

    February 28 vs Wizards

    Too many minutes for Green and Grant. But the problem as always is Brad doesn’t have many options. Nesmith has consistently done more than either when on court but he’s also far from a finished product

    Good call. But I’ll take TL

    Which of them? I don’t think Javonte should play at all, but I get the theory tonight

    February 28 vs Wizards

    I get Javonte to defend Beal...who would eat Nesmith alive. Still want a few minutes somewhere

    Is TL the best alley-oop guy in Celts history?
