Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

This team is so dumb. How they won this I don't know.

all game too. Nothing he's done has shown me he deserves to start or play major minutes over other guys. He looks the part, just doesn't play the part

Does it matter who the best player is on the Celtics? The team sucks


Brad has to hold the players accountable. I don't feel he know how to coach All Stars.....this was evident when Kyrie was here and is now repeating itself with Tatum and Brown. His best coaching was when Kyrie was hurt for that deep playoff win........the team had no egos at that point.

He's only 23. Let's hope within the next 1-2 years he'll mature and figure it out



He would definitely, but age isn’t the factor.

Really strong game back for Thompson. Smart with 2 clutch 3's and his usually really good defense. We looked. like we were ready to completely fall apart a couple of times but we. kept it together and got the win.

Triple7 wrote:Why is langford fouling lol

Because we had a foul to give so he's making it more difficult for them to score by only giving them 3 seconds to get a shot off instead of 5..

huh?

What, when the guy on the Knicks who is. a terrible shooter made a 3? a) Payton is a 24% 3 point shooter so langford was right to give him space b) with langford's strong close out and long arms and he was still very close to the shooter, any closer and he would have fouled him

N3. Bingo! Pls make it so. Seriously that's the Ainge big move. Wouldn't be surprised if it's an open locker room secret and that Stevens steps aside that causing this miserable season. Get Beal with Tatum, keep the best younger players, and load up with solid, compatible vets.

1) We were 1-6 in our last 7 games without kemba going into this one
2) we got absolutely destroyed by the knicks last time out
3) knicks had same record as us coming in
4) no Fournier

considering all of that, I'm happy coming away with the win.

Trading Beal for Brown is a lateral move. Doesn't make us a better, doesn't make us worse. If anything, it's a bad trade because brown is 3 inches taller, 3 years younger, Brown is a better defender and better rebounder.

Oh and then you want to trade Kemba too, without getting any additional value in return, all we get is Beal? LOL

I'm all for getting Beal, but only if we are pairing Beal up with both Tatum and Brown..

Beal and Tatum is a big 2. Beal, Tatum and brown is a big 3.

I'm all for exploring trades for Kemba.......especially for a defensive/hustle big. No way should you give up your best two way player for another iso player. Way more upside on Brown at this point than Beal.......the additional pieces would have to be crazy good.

IDK He seems to have a cool confident swagger like Tatum. Sure wish I had it. Then again, his folks named him Romeo, and them there are some sweet Italian shoes to fill.

Brown made a bunch of big 3's pff the catch to keep us in it and a strong finish on the break in the clutch. Solid game for him.

Simple answer is they have great talent.

The problem is they don't have great basketball IQ.

Just like a beautiful girl with big boobs but not very bright.

I'd just like to point out, is that more on Brad or Ainge?

Mostly Brad. But Ainge too for picking him 21st overall. I suppose the coach feels obligated to play a guy who gets drafted that high. But at the same time, who cares where they got drafted, you play to win.
