I still think they are too small. They have no physical presence - jut a nice jump shooting team and when that goes off a tiny bit they are cooked. Tatum at 6'8" but plays as a guard, Brown 6'6", Smart 6'3", Walker 6', Theis was centre at 6'8" and now Thompson is centre at 6'9".

Tristan Thompson is their biggest player (excluding Taco Fall who does not play). That is fine if you have Love and LeBron as well supporting - but the Celtics don't.

They are too small.
Yep. Agree with that.

Fans have been crying out for Time Lord/Robert Williams III to start/get more minutes, but the Stevens the dick won't do that.

Kind of hoping Dallas falls into a funk, misses the playoffs and Cuban in fit of pique fires Rick Carlisle.

He would be a perfect coach for us. plus won a ring here as a player too

In the raptors / sixers series.

Kawhi shooting was amazing.

Yeah it's because Ben is taller and it makes them harder to shoot over the top of him. Plus his footwork is sublime. Whenever Luka went to drive Ben was right there next to him and he had to kick the ball out to the 3 point line.

Luka Doncic, asked about Ben Simmons' defensive prowess: "I don't really pay attention to who's on me. I just try to play my game. Sometimes I'm gonna play it better, sometimes worse."

In his first season Luka averaged more than Simmons is likely to ever average in his career. In his 2nd season he averaged near on double of Ben. You’d think that’s about as far as that discussion needs to go.
