The celtics lost a lot this offseason and i feel like any slippage will be attributed to the "drop-off" from Kyrie to Kemba even though there's really not one.. its all the other guys boston lost like Big Al's Seafood, Rosey Cakes, and Bingo Bongo Bayngo
if we drop off (which i actually think is likely) then i will blame the loss of horford.
but really, i just want to see the C's play together and play good basketball.
Yeah celts fans are going to love kemba. He does have a nasty habit of completely disappearing on the last possession of the game.... and for some reason refs LOATHE giving him a lot of the foul calls that he deserves (maybe that changes in boston). But when he gets rolling he's one of the most exciting players in the league to get behind. He thrives off the crowd. He can jsut erupt as a scorer at any time and hes super likeable unlike Kyrie. The main thing is you dont wanna leave games up to the final posssession bc he just never comes thru... you're much better off when he erupts in the 3Q and blows the other team out.. the hornets had the worst record vs pythagorean expectations of any team in the league for 3 years running because we lost every close game...
He would have been so good with horford... kanter is a big concern because he just clogs up spacing so much on the low block... that is really going to seal off driving lanes for tatum, brown, and kemba which was boston's greatest strength with horford... beyond that kemba isnt a great defender so pairing him with a stooge like kanter on defense is a big concern... horford could have covered up a lot of those issues.. all that said i doubt brad will play kanter much... Theis is a much better fit as he can shoot a little and he does all the little things out there. i also think williams is already going to be better than kanter after an offseason to get ready
