Wanamaker. One n. Respect the name.
I think sometimes people don't watch games besides the Celtics, if they even watch those games. NAW has been awful this year and to say he'd suddenly have not been awful in very limited minutes on the Celtics is just fantasy.
Wanna hasn't earned my respect. He completely sucked last year which is a hell of a lot bigger sample size than the 15 games you're juding NAW and Wannnnna on.
And yes, I do actually think the Celtics run a different system that NAW's talents are more suited to than the Pelican's system.
He also wouldn't play PG like Edwards does, nor would he be as big of a liability on defense as Edwards is.
Your hard on for Wanamaker is great for you, but you realize even with all the minutes the international scrub is getting Edwards still has earned a quality rotational spot? So a theoretical NAW wouldn't have to outplay Wannamakakaka to get minutes, he'd just replace Edwards role in the rotation. And he may even slide Wkdslfnadksl to PG which his build is more suited for.
And considering our lack of depth when we played Dochawanna at SF for stretches recently I'm confident NAW would have a role on this team.
