Sorry, don't mean to be rude, but that is such a BAD statement. Unless regular season wins is our BIG GOAL. Especially considering were are barely 10% into the Regular season.
We were in the Semi-finals for what 3 of 4 years, and IF that is all you want then Congrats on your successful campaign.
I want #18. If you are foolish enough to believe things like Semi/Grant Hitting a few shots has solved our PUTRID bench scoring for the Title run, then what can I say. If you think our early record, is our true indication of our team, then that is on you. If you don't have a problem with Boston Big lead collapses, or a coach who uses a 2 BIG lineup that continued NOT TO WORK as therr is nothing wrong with Stevens, then that is also on you. If You are OK with our Lottery pick NOT even getting the chance to F up over players like Trent Waters, C Edwards, J Green, and so on, then that is also on you.
Me, if I see Dark clouds, hear Thunder, see Lightning, over and Over again. I don't act like it's going to be a Sunny Day.
Sorry, don't mean to be rude but why can't you just enjoy things? Why blame everyone and complain all the time?
Is the current team the best ever? No. But is it winning, fun to watch and generally going in the right direction? Oh corse it is. Just relax dude.
You really are good or annoying more like it, at calling out other posters and using flawed statements.
Let's start with the 1st.
"Can't you just Enjoy things" - Wrong. I enjoy quite a Bit. I often state my "enjoyment" in/for J Tatum. Same for Brown. In fact I have JOYFULLY defended their status and tried to convince others that their Status is only just the beginning and may actually be better then given credit for.
Same for Robert Williams AKA Timelord.
I have thoroughly enjoyed and posted about our rookie PG PP and how much I believe he will turn out to be a great draft pickup for us. Even in going as far to credit one of our much maligned posters for declaring him a great prospect.
I have also thoroughly and perhaps shamelessly promoted Tacko and even Joyously declared myself VP of his fan club. (no voter runoff with our self proclaimed Prez)
I have even given "positive" faith in our other Rookie when many (after a few weeks weeks) have given up.
I regularly and positively declare US ready to Go on game day. Never claiming or believing we can't BEST our opponent.
I can go on and can repost many comments about these "Claims" to back me up.
But the one thing I have NOT given any positive or joyful opinions on is Brad Stevens. I have made my case as to why many times, so no need to regurgitate any of it.
It is quite clear, now that I have posted on here for 6 months or so, that you are one of the Stevens' "apologists" that will come to his defense no matter what the situation. Truth is, I don't even care. I joined message boards to share/read opinions, make observations and YES even become critical when I feel so inclined.
The simple conclusion I have is YOU and some others have different sets of standards. You are happy with the status quo, the treadmill approach. I for one want another title. I was there in 1986 and sat 10 feet from Len Bias the night of the draft. Obviously my high expectations for Boston did not come through. But reality is only 1 time in the next 34 years, let me repeat that, 1 time in the next 34 years did Boston actually win a title. That is horrible by my belief Standards. I simply hate taking things for granted like may on here. Opportunities DON"T always come. And when they do, it is NOT a guarantee that we can maximize on them. Boston since drafting Tatum had a HUGE opportunity, with multiple all star level players and a treasure chest of assets to Maximize the opportunity, and improve. Instead we get treadmill gains at best, with even a possibility of getting worse. We still have the same limitations glaring us in the face. Yet, just "enjoy things" you say.
I will "enjoy things" when we get 18.
