I wonder if Rozier reads these boards and decided to comment on this post non verbally.  He played well tonight.

Rozier plays well most nights.
He played really well in the playoffs, but Celtic fans like to hate on their players.

He’s had more games with an eFG% lower than .375 than he has with one over .500.  He’s shot extremely poorly this year, notwithstanding tonight.

Celtics fans, in general, want to upgrad the team’s weaknesses. That’s not “hate”.

Most of Rozier's shots are 3s.
In the last five games, he is shooting 44% from 3.
It is always good to look deeper at stats.

eFG% accounts for threes.  His shooting has been terrible.

Yes. For example as you said in this thread, with a G-League player (where James Young scores 40) or a cooked FA like Deron Williams instead of Rozier.

What an upgrade  :laugh:

I actually think Boston Fans tend to overrate our players.   The rest of league knew that Sullinger gassed and a lost cause before many here did.   People always think that our free agents are going to command a lot more than they do.    Haven't you ever seen some of the lop-sided trades that are proposed here?   Or the talk about Yabusele being the next Draymond Green.   So I clearly think that the opposite is true.

It's a City of Champions so expectations are high.   Winning is expected in Boston and Championships are the end goal just not making the playoffs or having a good year.   People expect to win and if you're a detriment to winning you're resented and the flaws are pointed out.  But the caveat is, if you overestimate your talent and expect to win it is only natural that guys who don't perform will take the heat.

This is nonsense.  All fans of teams rate their players higher than players on other teams.  It's called bias.  I am sure Magic fans think Elfrid Peyton's hair looks good.

As for Rozier, he is a 23-year old on a rookie deal who at this time is a plus defender and elite rebounder for a PG.  His shooting is not good enough and he is not a creator.  The question is:  will those deficiencies improve?  If you are a fan of his, you are betting yes.  If you are not, you are betting no.  That simple.

I think most Celtics fans are of course fans of Rozier and therefore think that he still has room to improve.  That is not overrating.

That’s not what Mr. Hobbs does. He just....doesn’t.

Wait...Rozier had two good to great games. He has sucked for weeks. Let's see Rozier consistently shooting and contributing well before having someone say they were wrong about Rozier. Terry's last two games of shooting is a complete anomaly as compared to the rest of his career.

In his defense, I think he admitted to being wrong about the Nets trade and seems to be warming up to the idea that Ainge made the correct choice in opting for Tatum over Fultz.

Rozier was good, off for a while, then had his two best games the last two.  No reason to be negative on him.

There is plenty of reason

lol oh okay nevermind then.

I think he can shoot 3's for example.  His shooting will even out.  I think he still has a lot of upside.  But he is not a guy you want to rely on.  The Celtics shouldn't have to (and especially wouldn't if they had Hayward).  I'm sorry but I don't see much to be outraged about.  Even if you want more of a PG, you can play Larkin and he has given the team good minutes this year.  I like Rozier and the last two games are encouraging.
