Which Former Celtics Point Guard Would You Want Back? [POLL] 

Post#1 » by zoyathedestroya » Sat Jun 8, 2019 3:15 pm

The main assumption is the same core of guys are back. Also assume that Kyrie still wants to play in Boston for most money. No other star tagged along (can't use argument that Kyrie will bring KD along with him). Can't have two on the same roster (so can't have both Kyrie AND Rozier). No S&Ts for Kyrie either.

"Other" option can only be a former Celtics PG. I make the rules.

?? / Brown / Tatum / Horford / Baynes
Smart / FA / Hayward / Morris / Williams
Ojeleye / rooks / FA

Just polling for fun. Mods, delete if you feel like it. No biggie.

If no AD, then Kyrie does not make a lot of sense to me except as asset-conservation. Rondo makes less sense with no AD also, but if he has his mood/anger issues under control, it would be great to see how much easier he could make the game for Tatum & Brown. Don't think he'd let Hayward run up and down the court like a Banshee without getting him the ball now and then either.

Kyrie is the only on the list I have much interest in.
That said if he leaves then we need some other dude
Danny Ainge on Jayson Tatum and rational for not making him available in a trade for Anthony Davis

I take Kyrie back at max deal with no other star player signing guarantees as long as there’s no ‘no trade clause’. That way at the very least we don’t lose an asset in letting him walk. That way at the very least we have him as a trade chip if things continue to not work out.
Pierce: The Celtics don’t celebrate anything but championships. The guys are definitely motivated and the younger guys are hungry to get out there and do it again. Once you get a taste of that success you want more.

Great read!! Thanks for posting. Rondo's IQ (both basketball and general) is off-the-charts for the NBA. Loved him even at his bad-tempered worst. Would love to have him back in some capacity now that he has clearly matured.

Rozier Island, baby! I'm feeling something like:

Rozier, Brown, Tatum, Horford, Baynes
Smart, Hayward, Williams, rook, rook
rook, Semi, Yabu

I dont' resign Morris if we're not trading for AD. Need all the shots for the Jays. At least the ones Terry's willing to give up. 8-)

If you can get Corey Joseph and Ed Davis splitting the MLE or using the Room exception for one of them, great. Depends on who you get in the draft. 14 & 20 should have a path to PT. 22 can be a long shot for Maine.

Use picks, semi, yabs to get another good young player as another option.

Just to be clear, if the rules were different, I'd want Kyrie with AD and/or KD as the first choice. Without another star, I'm moving on (and so is he).

Assuming Irving is gone....

"Playoff Rondo" would be nice for the money but we all know that "Playoff Rondo" only shows up once in awhile now days...

Conley would be a good choice except he's too expensive...

Rubio and some of the others don't play lock down defense....

Only Rozier is familiar with what the Celtics do and if he were to return to playing 32 minutes per game, i would think he would be the logical choice....just throw out last season and he would be the guy unquestionably....

After getting doused with Saki and given the nickname "Saki Daddy"at the local Hibachi bar last night, my son "Saki Birthday Boy' mentioned to me that Rozier is a "rhythm player"....I think "Saki Birthday Boy" has made a good point?

It made perfect sense at the time...the balloon hat that my son wore only emphasized the point...

So give me "terrible' Terry minus the 'terrible'...a year older and wiser and learning to keep his mouth shut...

Unless, of course, he ends up at the Japanese Hibach bar that is... :D

I'm 100% on this island as well.

But to be fair, on this island I'm using the resign Irving for multiple years and Blake Griffin trade him before the start of the season boat... it's just potentially an imaginary boat like so many dreamboats are.

Still quite full of himself, but a highly intelligent person, and sounding much more mature. He makes Irving's musings seem like a drunkard's babbling.
