Derek White plays well, Celtics win. Plays poorly, we lose. Derek White the real MVP.

The people that want to get rid of D White apparently only care about shooting numbers on the probably 5th or 6th scoring option on the team
I don't know of anyone expressing the view that you get rid of White. It feels like shooting troubles aside, he is one of the more popular Celtics players.

I honestly don't, but I swear I've seen it multiple times. Oh well, I love D White and the other two members of our three headed monster at guard, "NO NO YES's!" and all
Oh I think these folks exist. I think he's mostly appreciated which is awesome because a lot of White's value is not nominal box score stuff of course. The charges and steals alone are huge.

Exactly. He's perfect for his role and does all the little things and doesn't seem like he needs to score to contribute. I don't think there is a better 3 man rotation at guard in the league

The 22 point first quarter is a mirage. They played really well throughout, just couldn’t put the ball in the basket from deep for stretches. If they hit a few more of their open looks in the first they cruise to 130+ tonight. Good shit.

yea, and you'd have to be an absolute moron to think they'd deal any of those 3 for an old, expensive scorer on a tanking team

and you're right its been suggested more than once

It seems the Mojo may have returned just in time to face the Bucks, who BTW just lost big in Brooklyn.

121pts while shooting 28% from 3

I just don't see Brad thinking this team's offense is a problem, other than an early December cold spell
