Embiid still dropped 40. Doubling him didn’t accomplish anything.

Can't stand the calls he gets but if you don't think Embiids a great center you have no credibility

Embiid is massively overrated. You put him up against any centre who can defend i.e. Gasol, Horford and he goes quiet. He is just lucky in that he plays in an era where there are not a lot of good defensive big men.


If embiid was a Celtic this board would says he’s better than shaq- he’s a beast. Wish we had him

That is only because its been a long time since the Celtics have had a real quality big man. In any case, Shaq was not a good defender either. He was dominant and hard to bump out of the post but technically he was lacking on defence.

In the last 7 Drafts Ainge has selected Nesmith, Romeo, Rob, Tatum, Brown, Rozier, and Smart. Miss me with that ****. You're mad because he took Carsen Edwards/Tremont Waters with late firsts/second rounders? Go through like every Draft ever. Most late picks don't amount to anything

Celtics are playing with a 6’6” power forward (G Williams) and 3 G League centers (Fall, Kornet and Wagner).

Thank you Danny Ainge!

Grant Williams was a late first rounder who's been a solid rotation guy both years he's been here. Tacko Fall was undrafted and Kornet and Wagner were throw ins in a trade to unload Theis. And you didn't address how Ainge has hit on first round picks in the last seven Drafts, and only one of them even remotely fits your description of "6'2 guy with the 15th pick"

The last big drafted by Danny who earned a full extension with the team was... Perk! This should tell you how badly he has built a frontcourt over the years.

It isn’t brad. It is is his players don’t pass. Today we just turned it over 23 times. Impossible to win.

I feel like Embiid could be part of the reason for this lol

Edit: Nvm, it says unnatural shooting motion off of ball screens lol. Oh well, baby steps NBA

Oooof were getting clapped what’s happening more of the same post two game win streak Celtics?

Box score looks weird not even 70 total fg attempts seems like a really slow low possession game. Fournier being out really was a total mood killer.

Explain to me why he is a good centre? Look at the players who he is up against? None of them can defend. To be fair to the guy that is not his fault; Embiid can only play who he is up against. All I'm saying is that is centres learn to defend the way that Horford, Gasol and Gobert can then Embiid would not be half the player people make him out to be. God help Embiid if he came up against a technically proficient defender like Robert Parish!

His last two lottery picks have not done a thing to help this team. Grant Williams has regressed big time this season. We still don't have good bigs, good shooting or good ball movers. Other than that hia drafting has been A+!

Maybe Fournier would have helped keep the ball moving more if he played. The Jays and Kemba really have terrible facilitating skills and decision-making. Smart has his moments, but he played way too loose tonight which is something you can't do against the league's top defense.

Guess we'll have to kill the Bucks instead 8-)


I'm scared of Brooklyn. Not scared of Philly. They are solid but if we match effort they aren't that much better than us. Game was somewhat even outside that Danny Green flurry in Q2.

Btw Embiid 20 FT's :lol: :lol:

We have the worst collection of bigs. If Rob has games like this where he makes mistakes then it’s impossible to win

Celtics might have to make major changes this summer. Go after Beal for Brown, doing whatever it takes to trade Kemba, get value for smart, etc

Embiid dropped 42 on Jokic. With the calls he gets he is unguardable. Simple as that
