              I think Irving and Hayward should sit out the next few games and see how things look.

                Well they currently stand 5th in the East. We've seen how important home court advantage is for this team in the playoffs. It'll be interesting to see how they'll do against a team like TOR (currently best record in the NBA) Today is a ECF preview TOR and BOS are 1-1 can BOS win home in their 3/4 Meetup?

                  Nothing's wrong wit mid range if you efficiently go for them the problem is ppl overvalued the IDEA of 3pt shooting when you got players that aren't mechanically inclined to shoot 3's at a high rate

                        The only issue I have with trading some of the Celtics young talent is you have to identify what exactly you're missing/lacking as the squad is presently constituted.

                        Making a trade & getting rid of quality talent just to get picks or other role players won't make you better unless you know what you need.

                        But the way the Celtics are built right now, they have too much of a good thing. Alot of quality young wings & guards. But is that really a good reason to trade good players?

                          Here's the problem Kyries a combo guard hasn't shown he can run an offense his entire career, before Lebron he's leading the Cavs nowhere w Lebron he's the best batman the league has seen. The Celtics need a playmaker thats the problem. Depending on Horford to run the offense isn't going to work, Kyrie a great clutch player that gets buckets but outside of that doesn't make teammates better b/c his entire mindset is how can I score instead of how can I help the team win, again this isn't a bad thing but it's not the mindset of someone you want running an offense. He's the clutchest player I've seen and prob the best iso scorer besides James Harden but needs to be reeled in by a playmaker that can make decisions and read the defense.

                            Kyrie should’ve never came in that trade, but they should’ve brought Hayward off the bench and kyrie off the bench for the begginjng of season then worked em in the rotation our chemistry is bad

                                        Kyrie need to find the open teammates & get them involve more on OFFENSE. Not Uncle Drew type. The real Kyrie Irvine Himself.

                                              Idk about playing Jaylen Brown off the bench. He’s undoubtably a young star, and will want starting minutes. He’s not gonna settle for the bench for much longer, and he’s likely to leave if they don’t give him what he wants.

                                                      Take Hayward out of starting lineup and give Terry Rozier more minutes(better 2 way player than Kyrie Irving). Problems solved.

As soon as he mentioned him not feeling like coming off the bench 2nd to kyrie it all started looking grim. this is a team centered TEAM and once that became the theme u gotta think how the locker room felt

Most probably kyrie. This 2 are problems already corrupted by kobe a ex-laker teaching 2 boston key players hmmm why ?

                                                                                        Kyrie is a scoring PG, he’s not a SG. No different than any other elite guard in this league other than maybe CP3. Of
                                                                                        Course him not having to create every shot for himself helps him out, like every other player. Nick isn’t teaching us anything new, but y’all think he is. Also, going into the paint for a 6’2” guard all the time makes him more susceptible to injury...something Kyrie can not afford to happen. Let Tatum, Hayward, Horford and Brown draw the fouls, they’re 6’7”+. Tatum does need to stop taking long range 2s tho, get him some post ups and take more threes.

I promise you if he did that more than what he's doing now they would have at least 10 more wins, on the other hand it would fill up the assists stats and not the points stat sheet, which we all know Kyrie is going to get his no matter what. He didn't leave Cleveland so he could go to Boston to do what he did there, he went to Bean town so he could score and win a title without Lebron, period!!!
