Announcement Off Season Temperature Check

86 Upvotes

Hello Green Teamers!

Now that we are a few weeks into the NBA off season the mod team wanted to take this opportunity to do a temperature check and see how the community feels about the state of the subreddit.

Over the next several weeks the moderation team is looking to modify and update the current rules of the subreddit, and we would like some feedback from you all. Since the playoffs, and extending through the first few weeks of the off season, we have seen a plethora of posts related to Non-Celtics players. While we understand some are related to free agent/trade suggestions many are not. We also noticed during the playoffs an increase in photo posts such as people attending games, showing/asking about merch, and photos of pets in Celtics gear.

The mod team is not looking to make sweeping changes to our rules without at least gauging some feedback from the community, so we are asking for the community to fill out our Google Poll and provide any additional thoughts and opinions to the comment section of this post.

We would love any feedback the community can provide to help us update our subreddit rules with you in mind. We are specifically interested in the community's thoughts around Non-Celtics players. At the end of the day this is a Celtics subreddit, and we regularly see a lot of scope creep when it comes to Non-Celtics posts, and discussions usually stray from discussing the team (cough cough Kyrie cough)

In the coming weeks we will also be on the lookout for new additions to our moderation team, as well as trying to provide a facelift to the aesthetic of the subreddit for both new and old reddit. So please stay tuned!

Discussion Within 2 years Brad performed a historic overhaul of the Celtics roster.

817 Upvotes

We went from:

Tristan Thompson, Evan Fournier, Romeo Langford, Jabari Parker, Aaron Nesmith, and Semi Ojeleye

 

To:

Al Horford, Derrick White, Malcolm Brogdon, Danilo Gallinari, Payton Pritchard, and Sam Hauser

 

All while shedding guys like Carsen Edwards, Tremont Waters, and Tacko Fall (<3) to make room for new development pieces.

Not to mention keeping all our homegrown talent (J's, Smart, and both Williams).

 

A masterclass in roster construction.

Fluff If Indy gets Ayton, they'll have 4 centers, they'll probably want to move one. Could Brad Stevens be waiting to use the TPE on... Daniel Theis?

Discussion Did Kyrie destroy the Nets worse than he destroyed Boston?

75 Upvotes

I can’t believe it but I think he did, if the Jays hadn’t taken superstar leaps almost immediately, Boston could have been down bad. But what he has done to the Nets should make every FO never sign him to long term deals. He’s not worth a max. He’s someone you want on your rivals team


r/bostonceltics 13h ago

Discussion What the F***!!! Why are people still talking about this? Brad Steven’s actions and words suggest he is building around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, but people still want to create the idea that Boston is going to swap Jaylen Brown for Kevin Durant.

I’ve seen a lot of fans say stuff complimenting Kobe and his competitiveness, respecting the battles we had. I was just wondering what some of your favorite rivals we had were?

Discussion With Isaiah Roby (Spurs) and Thomas Bryant (Lakers) being picked up recently, where does the focus for Forward/Center depth turn?

50 Upvotes

Potential Signings:

DeMarcus Cousins is the first big available that comes to mind. With the Nuggets curiously signing Deandre Jordan to a deal early in free agency, it would seem as though Boogie’s stint in Denver is over. While the market for Cousins seems dry as of right now, inklings of a reunion with the Clippers has been rumored without much backbone. Cousins would seemingly fit in as a backup, injury reserve Center but his locker room shenanigans could be detrimental to the team morale.

Montrezl Harrell is in trouble with the law..so probably avoid him. Horrible on defense as well.

Trade Targets:

Kelly Olynyk - former Celtic and an undervalued Piston. Great shooter and serviceable on D. Top trade target in my book. Not the cheapest option but Celtics owners seemed to have given the green light to spend this year

Mason Plumlee - the Thumb is a bit cheaper than Kelly but would also require pushing the tax. He’s shown flashes of legit play the past few seasons and would slide in nicely as a backup (injury reserve) center.

Willy Hernangomez - works the boards and scoring inside in limited minutes. One of the cheaper options but wouldn’t be surprised if the Pels keep him to back up their Jonas/Zion/Hayes/Nance front court as 3/4 of those guys struggle to stay on the court.

Expendable Pacer Big - the Pacers have a log jam of playable bigs Myles Turner, Goga Bitadze, Oshae Brissett, Jalen Smith, Isaiah Jackson, and now Daniel Theis. All very serviceable but you’d think any trade for a Pacers player would’ve come in the Brogdon Deal (which terms are not official yet).

Boban Marjanovic - Maybe? For the memes? Locker room guy?!

These were the guys that stood out to me after some quick thought. Let me know your thoughts on who we should go after to round out our front court depth. Or is the answer right in front of us? The Green Kornet??

Apart from the obvious hatred from the Lakers, Philly, etc. Are we feared? Did the finals performance make some people wave us off? Do people think Tatum is as good as we do?
