Meanwhile, if Smart gets dealt this summer and Nesmith takes on his old 6th-man defender role, perhaps Nesmith could come to be known as the Grime Lord.

Likewise if Pritchard gets to actually play point next year, he might become their Dime Lord.

And to appreciate the heights of Rob's game, he could more formally be known as the Space and Time Lord.

Perhaps next year they can all play together in the Boston Pantheon.


Romeo learns to stick to his man on D and becomes the slime lord? Or leads the league in thefts and becomes the crime lord? Gets a sprite deal and becomes the lemon-lime lord?

Okay Ill see myself out...


I like u two


Appreciate it... if nothing else we need to entertain each other in this mess of a season.

Article focused on Nesmith's high school days I don't recall seeing previously, athough it was published pre-draft. Highlights include:
-- Very high levels of energy/competitiveness.
-- High school player of the year In his state, over Zion Williamson.
-- A dunk in a practice scrimmage that literally broke the rim.
-- Shut-down defense (literally zero points allowed) when up against somebody who had bad-mouthed him.
-- Bank-shot skills even back then.

Semi will have a great hammer throwing career after his contract with Boston runs out in a couple weeks.

I expect a lot of people to start eating crow on both Nesmith and how Stevens should have been playing him sooner.

Man up or else we are coming for you :lol: I'll provide some ketchup!

I was harping on Nesmith not playing looking for crow eating too.

Celtics fans and Aaron Nesmith:
“Did we just become BEST FRIENDS?”

If this guy’s going to play like this then **** me we got a good one. Sorry Romeo, I liked you, but then I .. met someone.. else.

Homeboy is PERFECT between JB and JT. Yes yes YAS

Nah, all the body language experts are too busy watching Tatum.


Okay, humorless Comedian, I take it back. Here's JB's full interview. He gushed enough about Nesmith before the hurting-others comment, so I agree, JB doesn't deserve a hit here:

PS But has JB said anything even vaguely funny since he got here 5 years ago? I don't recall any legit humor for who seems to be the most dour and serious pro athlete in Boston.


Has Nesmith perhaps clobbered some teammates in practice?

When did “best shooter in the draft” become code for “hustles like a maniac told he has moments to live”?

His effort to get to shooters in the second half — for like 20+ straight minutes of game time — was phenomenal.

Plus his jumper and drive game are great.

Compared to Devin Vassell last night? No ragrats.

Sometimes you got to let people figure stuff of Mr.Stevens. Show of been giving him playing time earlier.

Man I hope he's in the rotation for good. He's a real shooter and he has enormous balls. The rest will figure itself out.

Here's a great story on Nesmith from before he was the "best shooter in the draft":

and also effort in terms of hustling for rebounds and loose balls.

So many times this season, our opponent has been quicker to get those 50/50 balls.

Last night in the 2nd half (and also for the vast majority of the hornets game on weds) we were the ones hustling for all of those 50/50 balls, which was great to see
