And this whole Hayward held the youngins back is a detraction now that we know that it wasn't Kyrie who held them back


The truth is that Jaylen wasn't that good and wasn't ready for those expectations and couldn't perform to meet those expectations, and Tatum was still too ripe, inconsistent, nonaggressive and a bit slow-footed

Excuses being made out the a*s but the truth is that Jaylen and Jayson held the Celtics back, and it wasn't due to anything wrongdoing, but rather their inability to perform

Celtics actually got better in the off-season so y’all can miss me with @ing me every time they win a game this season, but we’ll see that Jaylen is no greater than the 4th best player on a championship squad and his inability to perform in Hayward’s absence was one of the hugest reasons last year was a failure
i will say you were the only other celtics fan not blaming kyrie like i was. it was all on the young guns and terry rozier. hopefully without his lil ego and kyries weird conspiracy having a*s out of boston (boston too smart for dumb flat earth sh*t. you got harvard and mit there. he just wasnt a good fit off the court.) this team can hit their groove. they should have never been using gordon until the all star break at the capacity they did. rozier should have been moved instantly. and the day brown said this i would have sent everything we had to the pelicans for AD, they were young and ignorant and naive top even mention themselves in that category

All I’ll add to that is that Ainge turned down a Kawhi trade for him. Missed out at pairing Kyrie and Kawhi for Brown. They must have high expectations for him and I hope he proves me wrong for his sake.

Brown getting traded before the year over - ainge isnt going to pay him. Ainge only max proven FAs (Horford - Hayward) and chase draft picks.

He turning brown into a 2021 1st and a 2023 1st + an underperforming vet

I feel bad if the Celtics have to pay jaylen brown 25 million a year. His contract is up this year.

Might be a worse deal than Wiggins

That Celtics team was loaded with talent but couldn't make it past the second round of the playoffs, doomed by poor chemistry and inconsistent play. What they didn't lack, however, was confidence -- perhaps too much of it. (Or at least the wrong kind of it.)

Appearing on the latest episode of "The Michael Holley Podcast" alongside Celtics managing partners Wyc Grousbeck and Steve Pagliuca, C's president of basketball operations Danny Ainge shared a telling exchange he had with Jaylen Brown last season in the team's lunch room.

"He came and sat behind me, and he said, 'Do you think we're as good as the 1986 Celtics team?' " Ainge told host Michael Holley. "And I went, 'Oh my gosh. He's so young.' "

The 1986 Celtics, teeming with future Hall of Famers like Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish as well as a young Ainge, are considered one of the best teams in NBA history and steamrolled to a championship after a 67-win season.

The 2018-19 Celtics had Kyrie Irving, a still-recovering Gordon Hayward and a bunch of young kids. And to Ainge, Brown's comparison was a sign of that group's naivete.


"I mean, I just don't think they could even grasp that 1985 loss to the Lakers and the torture of that series and what that led (to), and Larry Bird was in his prime, one of the greatest Celtics of all time," Ainge said.

"But it was just fascinating. (Brown) was looking at it like matchup to matchup to matchup, like you're doing a video game. That was a real awakening to me -- just the perspective of guys."

Ainge then pinpointed what would prove to be a critical problem for the C's as players like Brown and Jayson Tatum fought for minutes on a crowded roster.

"Certain guys thought they were going to be All-Stars this year," Ainge said. "And they work hard all summer to reach these individual goals, but we just had too much individual goals. We didn't have enough guys that winning was the most important thing. And when you have 21- and 22-year-old kids, that's gonna happen.

Ainge added he understood that mindset, having toiled in Bird's shadow on the '80s Celtics. But those C's teams also were fiercely focused on a common goal of team success, while the '18-'19 Celtics failed to do so -- and paid the price.
So they're blaming Tatum?

Lol from who? Hardly any teams have cap space this summer and teams will save for summer '21 .

ATL, MEM, CLE, CHA, TOR are the only ones with cap summer '20. ATL got Reddish, CHA got Bridges, MEM will have a top 6 pick, CLE will have a top 10 pick, TOR got OG.

You should ask the Celtics fans and media that same question. They're writing articles about Kyrie almost everyday; the podcast guys are talking about why he left weekly; and the fans are discussing on him on Reddit, RealGM, and FB groups.

What am I on his d*ck, but they're not?
You post threads of Kyrie on RealGM…..under the same name

You need a hobby bro

I agree yall can get more but Beal could force y'all hand if he doesn't sign that extension. He could force his way to the Celtics to be with his lil bro Tatum.

JB, Smart, Memphis pick, Cs pick this year
