We need to Brad Stevens the fuck out of here. His lineups suck. Semi Ojele should never start a fucking game. Tristan Thompson should be starting over him and Daniel Theis. Please bring in Nate McMillan and get this bum outta here!

Whats up with your boys by the way? Why is Stevens still safe?
Stevens is what's up. He is not a guy who is not into player development, and he is too guard-oriented. Guys like Brown and Tatum are getting better by working out with other players and trainers in the off-season. Stevens doesn't do shit to make them better during the regular season. I thought Carson Edward's would have found a role. Also Aaron Nesmith hasn't done well. If you aren't gonna play them, let them get some run in the G-League. They shoot too many threes. No one can post up. The only one with a mid-range game is Kemba. The bugs don't rebound. It's terrible. Semi fucking Ojele? He must be sucking Stevens off. Brad has his favorites, and it is detrimental to the team. I don't know if the backup bugs are good because Stevens won't play them. I want to see Robert Williams and Tacko Fall play more than 5 minutes a game. Or just get Andre Drummond. They have a $28.3 mil trade exception. Or just take a flier and give up a draft pick for a guy like MO Bamba. Bamba will never get meaningful minutes on Orlando. The main issue is that Tatum is not held accountable for his shitty play. It seems like he is trying to live up to his contract, and the fact that Brown has taken such a huge leap that Jaylen has passed him as the best player on the team has got to bother him. I just think Boston needs to get a new coach. Truth to be told, Smart was more of a coach and leader than Stevens. They have been out of sync ever since he got hurt.

I was just saying the same thing.
Ainge and Stevens need to go, IMHO.
Ainge sitting on those draft picks like they are valuable in and of themselves when they aren't. I would have been flipped those for Drummond and a true PG, hell even Lonzo at PG would be an upgrade.

I been said Jaylen was the best player on the team, Tatum had the look that marketing wanted to sell, but Jaylen was better and has the higher ceiling and greater skill level.

Your boys get Drummond and they are a top 3 squad in the east, hell drop all those picks and some salary relief to the Cavs for Love and Drummond.

They can get off Rozier's contract, get Lonzo for cheap and 4 years, get the same defense, a better passer and playmaker, and allow Horford and Melo to just focus on scoring is my guess.
Rozier actually doesn't have a bad contract. He is just more of a shoot g guard than a pg. He works well with Melo because Melo is tall. I would trade Devonte Graham instead.

As I said, they have that trade exception and draft picks. They could easily make it happen. I been going easy on Ainge, but tes, he should go too. If they actually had decent player development, too, I would say try and take a flyer on Bamba. Stevens doesn't respect big men, though, so it doesn't really matter.

If there was anyone who should have been sat down to heal, it was Davis. He was being hampered with achiles injury, and he kept playing. I know he has a history of being fragile, but an Achillles injury is nothing to play with. That is an instant year off. With Davis, it might be longer than a year. I don't know who to blame, Coach Vogel or Coach Lebron.

Blame AD.
AD should have told everyone and not tried to force through an injury.
Its most likely over for him and its over for LeBron's hopes of another ring.

It's weird that this happened to him, because he has never seen one to play through injuries. I feel for him because he was trying to play through it for his team when he should have been looking out for himself.

Lonzo isn't a playmaker at the NBA level.
I think he is, but his skill set, or lack thereof makes him more suited to a backup role. He has the upside, but he doesn't have the fire or swag to be good on a consistent basis. Look at TJ McConnell on Indiana. The little guy busts his ass, just to be as good as Lonzo is now, and he is almost as good, on a cheap contract. Lonzo will never live up to his draft pick, but he can be good player on the right team.
