Can we start Tacko every game just for the jump ball, and then sub him out at the first whistle?

Tommy just getting really excited for Tacko is one of the great joys I will have in 2019. We are so lucky to have him still around.

Poirier has the face of a guy who knows he's about to fall to No. 4 on the depth chart.

Maybe it’s a coordinated coaches’ silent protest of the rule—fuck up the end of preseason games to express displeasure.
more likely the same reason nfl coaches were challenging PI in the preseason, see how refs are going to handle different situations now when it doesn't matter

Time Lord looks like #4 to me.

Jaylen Brown isn't going to get an extension shooting the way he did tonight. And Ojeleye is close to being on the waiver wire for the same reason. Grant Williams is a better player, and they could easily use Ojeleye's roster spot for someone else.

Wish the NBA had more roster spots. I want these young kids on the team. Super fun 4th quarter.

Looked at the ESPN video clip of Tacko's dunk and saw a couple of fans dressed as tacos. That, in itself, should be enough to get him a roster spot.

Did you listen to the Chris Mannix podcast? Gorman is on the second half of it and talks about working with Tommy and how Gorman got his job. Really good stuff. He also completely slams Kyrie as 85% of the problem last year. First half of Pod is very good as well with Ryan, Scal and Himmelsbach.

Tommy keeps calling him Darko.
Five of the more underrated moments of he night. Gorman finally stepped in. I had to explain to my barely watching wife that a) the NBA recently had a player named Darko (Mlicic) and less recently one named Dark (Jesse); and b) Tommy is 300 years old.

I honestly didn't mind as I knew who he was referring to. I just went with it. Just glad that T is still around and has the energy to do some home games. Not a big fan of Scal so I'm enjoying it while I can.

So if someone does something that gets Scal up out of his seat and start dancing about, do the get Scallywags ? "The Scallywag player of the ye-arrrr is.... Marrrrrr-cus Smart" ?

Where the heck did Javonte Green come from?

I'm intrigued.
An interesting note about Green was that his senior year in college he was the conference DPOY.

Radford was the only D1 school to offer him a scholarship. JMU offered him a football scholarship to play QB. His HS coach was Bryant Stith.

Jayson with the three off the dribble! The Celtics are doing everything on offense that they want to do.
