Sometimes I don't think people on this board are real.




 What exactly are you referring to Celtic?

Westworld overdose reaction.
This is where the rubber hits the road

Amazing player. He looks like Westbrook.  But if I wanted westbrook I would.

Some guys are great though.  KG wasn't exactly a guy who was at a lack for words but even still.  Marcus still might not have that kind of explosiveness but the game can be played in different ways.

I like character.  Marcus going into the stands was different.

Franchise potential player.  Looks like he's just having fun but we have to pick the right ones.

Marcus keeping it real

Thing is I saw that incident with Marcus completely different.  He was p---ed.

I like Marcus better...  No good deed goes unpunished.

Huh? A grown man called Marcus the n-word right to his face. Marcus pushes (not punches) him, and yet the country pretended like Marcus committed a cardinal sin. The fans actions should be criminal.

If I were 6'4, 220 and someone disrespected me like that, I would have done far more.

 Hes 6'2" and probably 240 pounds now. I hope Smart doesn't turn into mini Sullinger. Hrs trending in that direction.

Apparently at the combine he measured at 6ft 3.25 w/ shoes on (he plays with shoes on the court). He def. has gained weight. While it seems like he's missing a step on his drives (at least compared to the ultra quick IT and JB), his lateral quickness looks fine on defense.

Dennis Smith looks good, not great. Same with Fultz and Lonzo. I'm definitely not as excited about these 3 pgs as many other people. I don't think that any of them are as good as Westbrook. Fultz might be as good as Lillard, in my opinion. If so, he's worthy of the #1 pick.

Marcus is the same size he's always been.  He's just built like that.

“I think the one thing I always felt — and this is not being critical of Marcus; this is just, I think, for his development — is that he’s a guy that thrives more in competitive situations,” Donovan said. “And I always felt like if he could take that competitiveness to skill work — his shooting, his ballhandling — the sky’s the limit as to how good he can be.

“The thing that I was so impressed with was any time we did anything competitively, the whole disposition in the gym totally changed.

“He has got a great team awareness. He’s great with the guys. He’s got great leadership qualities. But he’s a guy that enjoys practice when there’s score being kept. When there’s a score being kept, he is on and he plays and he’s relentless. I really appreciated being around him for two summers to see that.”

NOt knocking Smith either. He's super talented but more cocky like westbrook. 
 
I'll take Smart though.   If we get both sure thing but I don't see why we'd do that.

I agree. His shot is not broken. If he can hit a couple more shots per game, he becomes starter worthy. He is not as poor of a shooter/passer as Tony Allen.

I do not see why the celtics would move smart and draft a pg as far as the future is concerned.

It's amazing to me how much more athletic or faster some of these guys look to marcus though. But character and mental makeup is a big thing.  It's weird how the celtics draft.  Even if you watch that other footage i posted.  Marcus keeps the ball moving, seems to know where to be etc..

The celtics have always drafted this way.  They don't find the usual players. Brown is a supreme athlete but even he is wired differently.

Usually guys I want to root for.

MArcus may not be the fastest guy but he is still built for the nba imo as well. Even Bradley.  Super athlete that is overlooked but different.

We've been drafting later which does not but even at the top of drafts we don't take the usual suspect.

I don't mean character in the grant hill, karl anthony towns, shane battier way either.  I mean it in that something else that drives these players sort of way.
