And how many times will Zeller/Sullinger/Olynyk watch that lob dunk?
Posted 04/08/2015 08:45:47 EDT
Zeller and Olynyk just can't defend anyone near th basket; both of them just keep getting abused.

Zhou Qi, anyone? Overlook, for the moment, that he's so absurdly skinny. He is only just 19. Check out his reach and the size of his hands. Then check how fluidly and easily he moves, how well he se more »

Can we get someone to smack Olynyk in the face before every game? God, I'm hoping this was, really, no pun intended, an eye-opener for him, a "Thanks-I-needed-that" kind of moment where he figures, "H more »

Blind squirrel corollary. Bradley's a streak-volume shooter and that jumper is dynamite...some nights and under certain conditions. He gets good screens, his rhythm is right, he can get to his spots, more »

In response to spreadthelove's comment: You're missing Omega's, Gamma's, and Sigma's. It's good to remember that we're talkig about a sampling from within a very rareified group of high-achieving athl more »

And the question was, "Why does this starting lineup dig a deep hole most every night?" There are only four Alpha personalities on this team, Crowder, Wallace, Thomas, and Smart, and not one of them s more »

In response to kdp59's comment: so I guess you like MY idea of getting Noel better then, LOL. yes the Celtics are magically going to get 3-4 elite NBA players...using magic beans I suppose. and more »

Oh, and while we're at it, Miami's 'Twin Towers', Michael Beasley and William, Bill, Hank, Billy, Henry Walker, made Zeller and Olynyk look like the Turnstyle Twins. Jeesh!

I was excited that the C's got Jerebco, but apparently the Jerebco I had in mind was the one before the achilles injury. He seems not to be the same bouncy, fast-flying guy I remember. Yes, he is stil more »

In response to billge's comment: He is obviuosly not the starter on a good team, but at some point you have tostart deciding who to keep. By some measurong sticks there are probably not four players more »

In response to cole-ely's comment: I think WE will want zeller. He's the closest thing to a low post player we have. Yes, but not saying much - in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king. On a more »

I sure hope so.
Posted 03/09/2015 11:01:48 EDT
He and Crowder are shooting too many 3's. You agree. Right? [/QUOTE] This is why a lot of times big leads disappear. If they would pound it inside that hould help out, if you live by the 3 you die more »

Surprisingly, Brandon Bass has shown improvement. He's better able to put it on the floor for a bounce or two without losing it. He's been more auhoritative underneath, quicker in his gather and up, m more »

Lots of good stuff in this thread. Agreed that Ainge has done a great job "picking" some hard-playing, fundamentally sound parts and pieces that so far have meshed into a an easy team to root for. Su more »

In response to cole-ely's comment: That was the worst half I've seen for oly. Unfortunately it's not the worst I've seen. Somehow we've been mesmerized by Kelly's occasional guard-like instincts into more »

Honestly, would you not in a millisecond trade Olynyk for Wisconsin's Kaminsky?
Kaminsky is what people want Olynyk to be. At least it's what I want Olynyk to be.
Posted 03/06/2015 11:48:04 EST
I've really wanted to like Olynyk despite what my eyes were telling me. I've kept wanting his high basketball IQ, shooting touch, and point guard vision, etc. to trump all the other troubling issues. more »
Posted 03/06/2015 11:11:43 EST
On the other hand... His hands aren't strong, he seldom wins contested balls, and he's usually a tic late in the first place. For sure, he is not an intuitive basketball player; he's a reasonably uncl more »
