    I expected Hassan to pout about the benching but this is worse than even what I anticipated. He doesn't even move. Dude get off the floor.

    I’m starting to think we might have the next Wes in Gary.

    You know what's depressing? We will probably never see Dame play under a different coach in his career.

    This... It's not like Tatum is surrounded by a ton of scrubs. If you can't defend people 1:1 in this league, you're at a massive disadvantage, regardless of scheme.

    Whiteside needs to just focus on his defender

    Yeah I think a shooting slump is pathetic. I think being told to guard a guy like Tatum who is both bigger and faster than you is pathetic. I think the fact that he will end up with a double double is pathetic. Oh and the way he's keeping his head up is pathetic. His fucking shot is off, that is really bad for our team but the term pathetic doesn't apply.

    No one said he was tired but you can get hurt no matter how long you have off.

    I don’t like Stotts at all. But way to project. The fact is this is a horrible matchup for us. It doesn’t matter what ballscreen coverage we choose. The Celtics have the weapons to exploit it. Tatum hedge or double, and he’s going to make the tag man in help side pay. Go under screen, he’s pulling up. Go over screen/drop coverage, he’s snaking the dribble and pulling up. He’s 6’9 with a Paul George-like offensive game. We have nobody who is 6’9 and can move. Be realistic.

    Actually we had one guy. He opted out of the bubble.

    I don't know how Mario won minutes in the scrimmage games with his play but Wenyen did not.

    Hood and Ariza would be much better options.
