1. Did we look that good or are the Celtics just that brutal? Pritchard was the most impressive guy on the floor for them.

2. I'm waiting for the latest game to game stat comparison between Maxey and Fox like we saw here the other day. Or will we have to wait for a Maxey off game again?


Maxey is all the more reason to swing for Haliburton over Fox. At this point, I'd rather just keep Maxey, let him develop and go from there. Two young, high upside guards on rookie deals? Yeah, sign me up.

1. Both. The Celtics are terrible and we beat the **** out of them.

2. Maxey only plays on off nights.

Agreed. We finally have what appears to be a legit guard that we drafted who hasn't even scratched the surface of what he might become, and people want to attach him to trades? Pure insanity.

This kid cares, he works his ass off, and he wants to be here. To me, he is the only other untouchable on this team right now.

Embiid basically just tagged Maxey as the franchise player on social media after this game. Maxey is untouchable.

Another reason why I feel like Morey has to make a deal. Nets are neutered with Kyrie only able to play road games. Bucks are still shaky and can be beaten. Miami, is strong, but also has some weaknesses. LaVine might have a long term injury and I'm not scared of the Bulls.

Ime Udoka is one of the worst coaches in the league. He is the Celts tank commander. Brad Stevens is a genius putting him there making him look good and leading Celts to tank for him to have a lottery pick to play around by the offseason

Horford was trying to pass the ball while being guarded by Maxey, he's a veteran... how in the hell do you do that?

He wasn't the only one, Tatum called screens several times while being guarded by Korkmaz....

Udoka going to a Schroder-Pritchard line up when Pritchard started to play well was strange as hell too.

You can say the Celtics are bad coached, and probably you will be right, but they're also super selfish themselves, that locker room must be a pleasure.

Maxey has legit sniper potential. Such a fluid release.

His shots are also fascinating, i swear every time the ball rims around the basket on one of his shots it ends getting in. :lol:

Brown is OK as a tertiary scorer, the role Tobi is playing.

So this is what the Tatum/Brown era has become? What is this? How did they go from ECF as pups to this?

Im happy for Maxey, hes upping his volume shooting the 3, and hes pretty good shooter off the corners. Hes back to being a 40% shooter with almost 4 3s per game. I dont think he will ever be a good passer( hope im wrong, hes a hardworker), but if we coud get Hali in a Simmons trade we would have the backcourt of our future, as Hali is a good passer and he can guard SGs, so Maxey can play ofensively as a sg that is his natural position.

They went from playing with multiple other all stars and good role players to maybe the worst 3-15 in the league.

Brad had them .500 last year. This is what they are. We saw how good Rozier and Hayward were the other night, they miss them and Horford not being cooked badly.

Celtics would have been much better if they drafted Fultz and Fultz didnt have the shoulder and knee injury.

Someone who can run PnR for his team to score than someone who run PnR and just jack it up thinking they’re Kobe 2.0

Supporting cast a lot worse, both Tatum and Brown want to be the alpha so they play selfishly locking the other out.
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.
