The Team is shorter than last year 

Post#1 » by Jammer » Sun Nov 22, 2020 6:42 pm

There is not much height at Center or PG. I'm waitng for the day Ainge has Tremont Waters jump center to start the game.

Starters (without shoes unless noted)
6' 8.25" Daniel Theis
6' 8.25" Jayson Tatum with shoes
6' 5.25" Jaylen Brown
6' 2" Marcus Smart
5' 11.5" Kemba Walker


Backups
6' 9" Tristan Thompson (says he grew since his pre-draft measurement of 6' 7.5" at age 20 + 2 months. I know his hair grew)
6' 8" Robert Williams III (Celtics website)
6' 6" Aaron Nesmith (Vanderbilt website)
6' 5.75" Grant Williams
6' 4" Javonte Green (Celtics website)
6' 0.25" Jeff Teague

Reserves & Two-way players
7' 5.25" Tacko Fall
6' 5.25" Semi Ojeleye
6' 4.5" Romeo Langford
6' 0.5" Payton Pritchard
5' 10.75" Carson Edwards
5' 9.5" Tremont Waters

I hope they can get smaller and faster yet. Bludgeon teams with those 6'8" wings and bigs and I will be a happy man. I could do without all the six footers, but I suppose they have a role in the regular season still.

Interesting though, I think they're going to go a little more 2 big man units this year than they have in years past. Will also help if Langford can show enough to garner trust as a ballhandler.
Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

Thompson is 6'9 without shoes, remember they had to update the heights of everyone last year, he is 6'9

Comment accepted. Grew 1.5 inches after pre-draft measurement at age 20 + 2 months. Still think some of that might have been hair, rounding and/or agent pushing for higher height in program.

yeah but thompson and smart in the starting lineup bring a lot more toughness. and thompson is a much better rebounder than theis.

When do you think Thompson will be given a starting role? First regular game? Or is that something that he will have to earn? His payday suggests he's the opening night starter, but I question if he deserves that role without first proving himself deserving. Just wondering, here. Management of team relationships and personalities matter. Thompson obviously has already been told his estimated minutes and rotation position (earn it vs. specific answer of starter, backup, reserve) or he wouldn't have signed here.

i dunno about starter but i expect thompson will be the finisher. if not the first game then shortly thereafter. i expect he will earn the minutes. the reason is rebounding, and toughness to go against larger C's. regardless of who starts i expect TT to play more minutes than theis or timelord, though depending on matchups theis may do better.
