I'd have a lot more respect for Mook and Al if they just told Brad: "look, we really don't feel like playing tonight, so sit us." Instead they're out there taking minutes from guys who are actually trying.

Morris has been horrible since the incident when he shoved Brown. I saw him twice in person this week. He got eviscerated by Leonard, and looked bad last night against Memphis.

Look closer. In his age 20 season Devin Booker scores 22 a game. About the only thing Huerter does better than Booker is shoot 3s and play below average defense instead of terrible...
I don’t think he’s as good as Booker was at the same stage in his career (it’s probably fairer to compare Huerter to Booker’s rookie season though) but that he reminds me of him as a shooting wing that can create a little bit off the dribble. His numbers in January are very good.

His numbers against the Celtics are very good. I remain convinced that Stevens made a disparaging comment about the Terrapins or Ainge tweeted something negative about Bill Walton or something.

yea, they need to just start sitting the vets on the back-to-backs

Yeah, this has been clear for awhile. My guess is that Brad wants them to build the mental fortitude they'll need for those back-to-backs in May.
With 4 Centers on this team, there is zero reason to play Al Horford on a back-to-back...Al's mental fortitude is intact and we'll need it in the playoffs, not some back-to-back in May

Acknowledging that this may be sarcasm I am missing, there are no b2bs in May.
