The Kemba Walker vs Terry Rozier matchup should be fun to watch.

I'll always be a huge Terry Rozier fan even if he was an awful fit last season. I hope he goes off and the Celtics still win by 20.

I bet he does. He's the best player in franchise history.
I think you are right about best player in franchise history. I was about to say Mourning or Larry Johnson but neither stayed with the franchise for very long. In terms of career win shares Kemba is the franchise leader followed by Gerald Wallace and Muggsy Bogues.

2018 Playoff Terry was a lot of fun.
The entire 2017-18 season of Rozier was a hell of a player. I miss the days when I thought of Terry as an undersized defensive dog, before he "earned it" in said playoffs and took to the Kyrie Irving school of defensive effort. There was a period when his role was guarding the 1s that were too quick for Marcus, right? Or did I imagine that? Man, last season was long and rough...

My memories of Terry will always be him skying for a rebound. There were games when it seemed like he was the Celtics leading rebounder, not just per36 but in gross boards.

Rozier was like a young Rondo in his first two years as a Celtic: a tenacious ballhawk on defense, great hops, excellent lateral movement, and a nose for the loose ball. Weakside rebounders usually generate great rebounding numbers in Stevens' defensive schemes (which made Avery Bradley look like Fat Lever), but Rozier's talents fit the role to a T. His most memorable moment came in 2017, even before Irving was injured, and Rozier rose to the occasion in the playoffs:

I couldn’t give a fuck about the Hornets but that video even got me feeling a little emotional. Kemba is awesome.

Do you guys think Kyrie is going to get a video/reaction like that?

The athleticism on the floor for the Celtics is impressive.
