Excited to see a new coach, a different style of play and pretty comfortable saying that Brad will be an upgrade to what Danny has been doing the last few years.
Failed in the sense of winning a title? Because Boston went from a 20 win team post Doc, to 3 ECF appearances in 4 years. Hard to consider that a “failed rebuild”. I thought both Danny and Brad did a great job building this program back up using those Nets picks. Just couldn’t get them over the hump.. and some tough luck with our big free agency signings.
You realize the 3 ecf in 4 years shtick has been a bad meme for a while now right? just checking because this exact fanbase and forum murdered Raptor fans for doing that same thing for like a decade. And yes, failure. I dont recall anyone here talking about how over the moon they'd be for a few ecf flameouts as the pinnacle of this long, laborious rebuild back in 2013 so no need to kick the goalposts around post haste just because it didn't work out.
Danny was undeniably bad at his job when it mattered this time around, and thats ultimately why he isn't still doing it. His 2018-19 campaign was one of the worst GM'ed seasons I've ever seen in sports and the followup to those years was limp. Lot of big assets got away for nothing. It is what it is, psyched we're moving into a new chapter where maybe some Celtic fans will be a little less proud of finishing in 3rd, 4th, 5th place and while we're at it, the style of play has sucked for years with Brad at the helm so hopefully that changes too.
You’re super over dramatic lol. It was the Nets trade that landed us Tatum and Brown. The cornerstones of the franchise.. who led us to the ECF in their early 20’s. You’re just a “title or fail” type of fan. And that’s cool. I’m just on the other side. I loved seeing Tatum lead us in the bubble. I loved seeing Jaylen develop into an all star. I loved seeing Brad get this team to overachieve with the IT squad. We failed at banner 18, we didn’t fail at rebuilding post big 3. We are in great shape moving forward.
And yes, Danny made some bad moves. Which is why it was time for him to walk away. But “one of the worse GMing seasons”?? Really? That’s a comment of someone who’s new to the league, which I know you aren’t.
