I would say critical,  not just important.

Also bringing up Fultz is pointless.  Our ods of getting him are so low that the idea is barely worth mentioning.

They lost Turner and it's showing. Not saying I'd pay him that ridiculous contract but they never really replaced him and Rozier hasn't really performed consistently either.

Turner had that ability and that's why he was like the second/third best scorer on the team in the Hawks playoff series, with Bradley out and IT being triple teamed.

The reality is, this is on Danny for not obtaining another shot creator to come off the bench

Gerald Green is not that guy

Rozier more and more is not looking as that guy either


Celtics should have brought in a guy like Waiters when they had the chance (buy low)

He really was a nice fit.  Can't fault for taking the big bucks, but he had become a nice piece with this nucleus.

I can't tell you how glad I am we didn't overpay Turner to stick around.

Personally I look at this more as a flaw in the argument of those who suggest we could get by with Smart and Bradley as our starting guards. That will never work unless we have a LeBron or Giannis type guy at forward.

You need an elite creator and scorer at the point of attack in today's league.

  • Boston Celtics= Championships, nothing less.
we were up by 13 points. Bradley and Smart had awful, awful games on the offensive end. Jaylen was non existent. Amir was non existent.
It was basically Jae and Horford. Philly got hot and we hit 6 from 29 three point shots which is 20%.

This was simply a stinker of a game for us on the offensive end and the 76ers shot 48% from the field.

Trap game and we got trapped. Don't over react too much.

This team needs another proven guy who can consistently score at a high level more than any other skill set whether or not we get Fultz.

He is essentially all of our offense. Not only is he the best shot creator on our team, and perhaps in the NBA, but also his passing skills are highly underrated. Yeah, he only averages 6 assists per game, but I feel that he does way more than those 6 assists tell you.

Eh, as bad as Marcus' shooting has been, he's been pretty much just as effective on offense as Evan Turner (while being much more valuable on defense).

Evan's scoring efficiency this year is .497 TS and he's produced 13.2 points, 4.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds (0.8 ORB) per 36.  Note that those numbers are pretty much almost exactly his career averages.

Marcus' scoring efficiency this year is .492 TS and he's produced 12.7 points, 5.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds (1.1 ORB) per 36.

Evan Turner's absence has not been the problem.  Marcus has been every bit as productive as Turner in that role.

The problem is that we don't have someone better than that.

Of course, the bold part begs the question of how well our defense (minus the supposed 'defensive liability') performed.
