Why would Romeo come back to BOS? He really needs to go somewhere he can play and actually handle the ball. Given some of the lack of defense in this league, you'd like one or another team would at least tell him he's going to get regular minutes and do more than stand in the corner on offense.
Back to Derrick White. Lack of comments about him is a good thing. Was looking around some 2 man lineup statistics on NBA.com since 2.10.22, two things struck me. (1) the Smart+White combo plays at the highest pace at 101.90. (Second is Brown+Tatum at 100.74). (2) the Smart+White combo has the 3rd highest Ast% at 69.4. White is in 4 of the top 5 lineups. #1 is actually Brown+White at 69.9%. (Horford+GW is #2 at 69.6%; #4 = White+GW and #5 is White+Horford)
Finally, here's a fun comment from White in his post-CHA interview about charges taken: https://nesn.com/2022/03/derrick-white-takes-playful-jab-at-marcus-smart-after-win-vs-hornets/
White was then asked if he had a competition going with Smart given that the Celtics veteran long has been known as a gritty player who does the same.
“I mean, what’s Smart in the league? You know that?,” White responded.
White is second in the NBA with 24 charges this season. Smart is lagging behind, tied for 14th with 11. When those statistics were revealed to White, he had a comical reaction.
“Not even top ten? C’mon Smart!,” White joked.
