    Scoring 41 pts one time means you held your own for an entire series? Lol!

    Bron doesn't get all the glory, look how much Irving got overrated because of Lebron!

    Irving: 22 pts 57% TS 3.5 rebs 5.6 assists
    Blake Griffin: 21.8 pts 56% TS 9.1 rebs 4.1 assists

    BG's stock is so low SVG partially got fired because of him but the reality is BG is performing just as good as Irving, his stats are better than Irving and his winning results have been better than Irving since Pistons now isn't as horrible as the Cavs were under Irving. So a superior player to him stats and performance wise is called overrated but most people think Irving is a legit max player and a true winner. But look at Irvings play on the Cavs without Lebron and now on the Celtics is that worth 40M a year? Put Harden on that team they would instantly be no 1 seed instead of 1 game ahead of the Rockets.

    So no, Lebron doesn't hog all the glory Irving is proof of that.

    Kyrie really has a way to go in terms of leadership.

    He’s doing the Kobe thing in terms of what he says to the media about his team and the players on it.

    The Kobe after Shaq and before Gasol was largely seen as a tough guy to not only play with on the court but also in the locker room.

    I know Irving looks up to Kobe a lot and I know he’s also competitive and wants to win but Kobe started winning when he started trusting his teammates.

    Irving has good teammates that are vets in Hayward, Horford and Morris. He needs to lean on them a little more.

    But he’s also not nearly as good as Kobe on the court so he can’t be Kobe off it.

    Irving is a nice player a great number 2 but he’s not a leader or a franchise number 1.

    He just doesn’t have the talent or frankly the size to do it.

    He’s not a curry he’s not getting 28-30 a night.

    It’s to hard for little guys to be number ones.

    Curry and Detroit IT are really the only ones to win chips as the best player.

    Kyrie is not a good enough player to be an alpha on a title contender.

    He has no noticeable impact on the Celtics success. Not saying they are better without him, but they don't look any better with him either.

    Brad's biggest weakness, imo
    Is his lack of feel for substitutions during the game. Tonight is just another example of it.

    Danny should have just payed Evan Turner than Hayward
    Exact same gene on both players.. But the other guy has twice the salary… Yuck.

    I have never doubted Stevens until now

    Issue #1

    Why does he keep playing AH at center against atheletic/talented bigs(5s) like Whiteside, Allen, Vuce? Why can’t he at least try TL or Yabu? Horford is a terrible center, he is best suited as a 4. How come he keep on playing the same guy at the same position when it simply does not work?

    Issue #2

    Why does he keep playing Rozier? The guy has being awful for most of the season, and he obviously does not play like scary terry anymore, he wants to start or he does not bring effort. Why don’t he play GH at the point or Wannamaker more? Is the sample size not large enough to suggest that Rozier is a terrible back up PG???

    Issue #3

    Why does his offense seems to be sooooo basic. It’s literally just shoot 3s after 3s after 3s until the rim break or something. Why are the players not getting more post touches or more plays designed for back door cuts? It seems like all we do is shoot jumpers after jumpers. This simply does not work in our favour, but he keeps on doing it. I just don’t understand this strategy.

    If us fans, can see this, how come a 6 year NBA coach can not see this? Is he playing us or something? Is he happy with his contract and now he does not have to put any effort anymore? What is going on??? He was the best at adjustment, and getting the best out of his players. Now everyone has under-performed at some point this season.

    Blaming his teammates? I guess he really did learn a lot from Lebron in Cleveland.

    Gordon Hayward for Chris Paul. Who hangs up first? Of course this is with the belief that Kyrie is gone in the summer.
