I really wonder how Brad is going to make it all work though. The Celtics have the following guys who should receive/need minutes:Agree with all of this. I mentioned this upthread but the Cs do seem mentally fatigued. Hopefully they can recharge a bit over the All-Star Break, get Marcus and Romeo back, and start playing better basketball.
It would not take much to turn some of the Ls into Ws, even without upgrading their roster.
Outside Looking In
For a team that hasn't yet found its way, that's 11 guys, at full health, that Brad is going to have to eventually juggle and find the right combinations for. But this year, he doesn't really have the luxury of tinkering anymore because of where the team currently sits. Ultimately, as others have mentioned, this feels like a team that really needs a consolidation trade to create more-defined roles and a tighter 8-9 man rotation. But finding that useful 3rd wing via the trade market that does just that just looks dubious at this point.
