Doc has always been a sham coach. Ruined McGrady's career and would've never won a thing without 3 HoFers...

The problem with Kemba on Boston is he is so redundant.

Jaylen Brown likes to drive to the rim and is better at it than Kemba.
Tatum likes to throw up 3s and be the point and is arguably better at it than Kemba. Not only that, it seems like Boston/NBA wants to make Tatum a superstar.

So, what does Kemba do? He stands around and tries to create opportunities for these 2 guys through spacing and moving around off ball. It's obviously not what he is used to, but I don't think he's really dropped off much from last season. Shooting percentage has been crap this playoffs, but that probably has more to do with teams attacking Kemba on defense a lot/making him more fatigued. he was sweating buckets last night.

yap thats what I thinks going on. Kemba has been relegated to the relegator. He needs to be kemba and not sure he will have the confidence to do so. Boston is a bigger market and Tatum is supposed to be one of the NEXT BIG THINGS which I don't know if he will. I think coach needs to let kemba do him.

I haven't watched that much but did watch Game 1 against Miami and that narrative was way off from what I saw. Kemba just made knucklehead decisions, it wasn't a system issue.

I wonder if Bam Adebayo is displeased that the Heat are going to wait a year to give him his big extension to maximize their cap space. If he is I want Mitch to pull a reverse Zo and offer him a player favorable contract the first day of free agency next summer.

He says he wanted us to draft him. There's a chance at least.

Adebayo's final pre-draft workout came with the Charlotte Hornets, who held the No. 11 pick. He felt he performed well. He loved the idea of playing close to home -- close to Mom. "I wanted Charlotte," he says.

The BUBBLE has been cool so far. It's like basketball in it's purest form.

This kinda sums it up

Denver is a terrible defensive team for a conference finalist.

Why on earth did Plumlee switch off Davis on that last play?

Dumb move.

The guys started mini-camp today. Everyone is there except Batum and Biz. Hopefully some clips will get posted this week.

This is amazing to me - Herro the #1 jersey right now - but also shows me that you don't have to draft based on "Star Potential" if you draft guys who really know how to play they turn into stars through excellence ... and winning
