Do we have to put expectations on players so unbelievable high?
First, Green is an all-star player waiting to be unleashed. He was just never used right with the Thunder. He never had the time to be comfortable with the Celtics.
Then there is Sullinger. He will be a starter day one. He will fix all the Celtics rebounding and low post offensive issues.
Now Bradley. He will fix all the issues the Celtics have. He will put the Celtics over the top of the Heat. He is the reason the Celtics will be great on defense.
Why put on expectations on players that have never lived up to those expectations to begin with? It only sets you up for disappointment when they don't play up to these unrealistic goals. Even when the player is playing within the expectations and wants of the team, you the fan will be disappointed in that player for failing your expectation.
First of all, i never once thought green would be an allstar. I thought he should be playing better than he is now that's about it. I wanted sully to start over bass mainly because i don't like bass starting and sully can rebound. Avery bradley is another story.
I have already seen how he plays with us. Are you really trying to tell me he was elite on defense before but when he comes back he won't be? I think maybe you should go watch some tape on our team when AB was in the lineup because you clearly have forgotten how unbelievable good we were. Also, you're clearly not a believer in avery so obviously you love the gortat idea.
This isn't a list of things you said but a list of things that have been pushed around here by different posters.
And I know how good AB can be on defense. We saw it for those 15 games.
But 15 games is enough to call him the difference maker against the Heat?
Has he really shown enough in his career to be called a star?
I have high hopes of what he can develop into, but for now, I will be happy to see him back on floor being a defensive pest and developing a respectable jump shot. Anything more then that is just gravy right now.
