Marcus Morris is playing better than Tatum. Their numbers are very similar with Morris efficiency much better while playing about 5 mins less a game. Tried to tell y'all you were hyping Tatum way top much.

Celtics is not consistent at all. I have always believed that Kyrie Irving is a slight bit overrated. Kyrie just doesn’t make this team much better at all, matter of fact the Celtics has there two best seasons with Kyrie either wasn’t on the team or couldn’t play because of the injury. If I was owner of the Celtics I would offer him in a trade package with couple of draft picks, for Anthony Davis. Tyler Rozier can play the point, just like the past two seasons.

Max Max Max my man you're totally wrong about the Celtics the Celtics have been Jekyll and Hyde all season long they've had how many team meetings how many times does the players got together it's helped but it always just Fades away and leads to mediocre Celtics. Jaylen Brown needs to be traded I agree with Charles Barkley the Celtics need to make a trade or they're going nowhere the chemistry that they have the players that they have don't work another 10 team meetings are not going to fix it I say get rid of Jaylen Brown. The Celtics are not going to all of a sudden find their self at the 75 game mark they're done for the season unless Danny Ainge can make a deal. Bradley Beal they should go full force for Bradley Beal he would fit perfectly on the Celtics Jaylen Brown in my opinion was never that good Danny Ainge took a chance on him turned him into a project he's been unreliable at best he'll come out and score 21 his next five games you'll get six points the guy's just not good.

Missed shots and a lack to compete against Miami is why the Celtics lost. That lack to compete was why Morris got mad and went at Jaylen Brown. Overall, They got humbled. Nothing more nothing less.

In my opinion the story around the Celtics is that Brad Stevens' inability to manage player egos. It looks to me that Stevens is a coach that can get a team to the point where they are playoff ready, but not the coach to take them to the next level or win a championship. What's also very telling is the way Jaylen Brown and his ego have handled this. If he isn't the focal point of the offense, he seems to fade in and out. At times he's looked disinterested in playing. One of two things is going to have to happen. Either Ainge is going to move Stevens along, which I'm sure won't happen. Or he is going to have to make a trade and shake things up a bit. I don't know if anyone in the NBA is willing to trade with Boston. Daniel Ainge isn't going to find many people willing to help him out, nor should they.
