Celtics Talk / Re: Crowder says team needs identity, set rotations

I'm not sure about this.  I think Brad has a method that I'm willing
to trust.  If we had a star who wasn't playing enough minutes I'd agree
and say get that guy in.  But I think part of the reason Sully is able
to be so aggressive lately is that he's getting some good rest.  Kelly is a guy
I'd like to leave out there longer, but not if he insist on being passive
for 2 1/2 quarters. 

So I would say to the guys, prove it.  Prove you shouldn't be taken out.

Also, more than a rotation fix I'd say the team needs Smart back.
The little I've seen of the college year so far has me as a Brown fan for the #3 pick.

And I'd love to get Poeltl with that second pick, whomever it comes from. Don't know if he'll make it out of the top 10, though.

Crowder needs to stop complaining.  Score 30 and carry the team on your back then

Has he ever attempted 20 field goals?

He does go missing on O at times, but only when plays break down which has nern happening a lot lately.

He is not wrong, no, but its hard to see what the comment achieves other than venting frustration..
Jaylen Brown!
Ingram has disappointed me after a great start. He seems to be having difficulties scoring the basketball, which really isn't what this team needs right now :o

Gronk might not even miss a game!

I'm having trouble thinking of any scenario where I let Gronk anywhere near the field against the Eagles. From my layman's point of view, no way that hit to the knee didn't do at least some damage.

I used to hate Kobe when I was a little kid... man those times go by so fast. I have nothing but respect for him now, and I'd really like to thank him for the great battles he gave us; especially when the C's squared off against the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Those were times :laugh:
Celtics Talk / Re: brooklyn playing well

I can't consider any 4-13 team "playing well". Heck, even at their recently improved play pace (4-7 after starting 0-6) that only translates to a 30 win team over the course of a season. This isn't going to be a good team. 

I never considered the pick to be a lock for the top 3 but I have said repeatedly that it may very well be a #5 or #6 pick. And that's fine by me. Every Celtics fan wants a top 3 pick, no doubt. We all want Ben Simmons. But I'm not going to complain if it's top 5 or even #8...well, unless we get screwed in the lottery AGAIN (at this point it's starting to look like an anti-Celtics conspiracy). Look who was picked between 5 and 10 over the last few years:

2009 - Curry, DeRozan, Rubio, Jennings
2010 - Cousins, Heyward, Monroe, Paul George
2011 - Valanciunas, Walker (really bad draft)
2012 - Barnes, Lillard, Drummond
2013 - Noel (another really bad draft year)
2014 - Smart, Randle, Payton

Some of those years were rather lean but then again they were relatively weak draft classes. But in other years there are some genuine studs in that list, including a number of All-Stars and the reigning league MVP. I like those type of odds. Those picks aren't garbage. So I'm not getting all mopey and depressed because the Nets may not own the #1 pick.

Even if the pick is, say, #6, that's a really valuable pick and remember the Cs have two more of theirs (the right to swap in 2017 and the 2018 pick). The Nets are going to have a very difficult time getting better because of their lack of draft picks and the fact that many teams will have plenty of cash for free agency - and many of those teams are far more attractive destinations.

Thus it could very well play out that we own top 10 picks from them in 2016, 2017 and 2018. If Danny can't spin gold out of those then he doesn't deserve to be the GM.

IT sharing Crowder's sentiment:

“It’s a strength and it could be a weakness just because coach knows we have a lot of guys, and he wants to give everybody an opportunity, which you should,” Thomas said.“But at the same time, when it’s winning time, put your best five out there.

“Not putting anything towards coach. He’s doing a great job. It’s just, as players, we’ve got to separate ourselves.”

Who would you pick as our 5 best (currently)?
