Can you just coach the Boston Celtics Mr. Legler? I'm sure you're better than Brad Stevens.

Legler's pts are always on pt & good. Fact is, EVEN IF Kemba is back to LY's level, Celtics will still not advance past 2nd round in this yr's playoffs. Kemba, in playoffs, is too 1 dimensional with relatively low ball IQ, not a play maker just scorer, & hopeless on D due to his sense, bad basics & size. Ainge should hv gone all in to trade him with picks & 1 solid player for Jrue Holiday, who has size & plays both ways, and most importantly, can create for others & play make. However, Celtics woes partly has to do with the players (eg. Tatum's reading of the defense in many instances not just this game has been slow & he is still ineffective in drawing fouls & finish) & partly has to do with the roster & Stevens' tactics.

Kemba took 12 3pts lol that is the problem. More than half his shots were 3's. He's not steph. No need to be taking that many 3's. That's Lazy Basketball in my opinion

As a Celtics fan this is the first time I've lost faith in them in years. Even when they had struggles in years past I thought there was a chance they could iron it out, but as this roster stands I see no shot of them making a good playoff run. They need to add capable role players, their depth is just atrocious. Missing Smart and Kemba struggling they could be staying afloat if they had some quality guys off the bench, but given the burden being put on their core there's no room for any injuries or sustained slumps from any members of their core.

1. This offense is horrible. They are at bottom of league in quality shots. They don’t get to the foul line. 2. The team plays with no energy 3. Stevens doesn’t play Williams and Pritchard consistently enough 4. Rob Williams should be playing 30+ minutes a game 5. Stevens ATO is awful 6. WHY IS STEVENS NOT FIRED!
Michael Auger
Michael Auger Acum 8 Zile
Why would anyone move when the ball is in Tatum’s hands? He is the most selfish player on the team followed by Brown and Walker. They dribble way to much and rarely look inside. Stevens coaches like a woman and doesn’t get after these guys. I’d fire Stevens and get a coach that get them playing good team basketball.

Lets not get too far ahead of ourselves. . The c’s problems this season have been a major impediment to their finding a rhythm or stride. its a bad stretch, one they were due for. 3/4 EastConfFinals appearances, a couple game 7’s. They’ll find their way back to form. But getting over that hump to get to the finals is going yo take focus by brad stevens. Yes lack of depth, but brad needs see a rotation through and instill some confidence in the bench.

Its not about Kemba or Kyrie. Celtics fans are the most toxic in the world...and no NBA star would ever want to play for them. The best solution is to move the franchise in a different city. These toxic fans do not deserve an NBA team.
Jonathan Acum 9 Zile
0:47 Tatum (and Brown & Kemba) is slightly late with some of these passes. Not bad decisions because plays could be made from those 4on3s, but just to hit guys more quicker with passes.

Its mostly Kemba, he is so terrible. Brick after brick, game after game. All that money he makes to launch brick after brick. Also, Steven's plays a lot of weird lineups that doesn't always make sense, he needs some of the blame too. And lastly is the bench, which is awful. Full of first round busts.

Like D'Antoni, Coach Brad is a great strategy coach but he's not much of a personality rangler the way Phil Jackson and Pat Riley was. But with a overload of talent, the Celtics need that skill to get some coordination. The team could get an assistant coach to do it. If not, the Celtics need a "Draymond Green / Chris Paul" type player. A guy who gets the top talent to behave and fall in line in the locker room. Not always the best player, but when the best player doesn't have the personality to do it (Steph, Kawhi, Tatum, PG13, Booker, etc) he does it.

@chris anthony yes I do. Year one , NBA champion ( I do not want to here any SAS, ESPN, Broussard,etc. Nonsense) watch every game of that playoff run, Nurse invented the Giannis wall and the box and 1 against Curry. Year 2, second best record in NBA with no Kawhi. Destroyed Lakers twice and lost to Boston in 7 by a couple of plays that could go either way. Year three...playing on the road for all the games, 2 and 8 start and now 16 and 15 and they beat Nets, Bucks an d Sixers team . Nurse is heading to Phil Jackson/Pat Riley levels as a coach
