Celtics Talk TV: Celtics midterm report
Hello everyone welcome to ask him. All star edition of celtics' talk TV two of the three amigos -- I'm Kyle hard Traber. A strides -- throughout BCS and patriotism out on Twitter hashed it Celtics saw -- rod. We just got to get right into it the Celtics -- -- good basketball. At the all star break but the big topic is the comments Kevin Garnett. Made last week talking about maybe this being his final Oscar de Kim wants to know it's funny how the media. What turned it had to say last night that he -- a list All Star Games visit his last season. We pretty much no words can be and how they came across yeah I mean. Clarified so we'll we'll let us be clear about something we did not go with him is because none of us knew would help having that tiger is in no way everything I don't know I don't it doesn't look. But the bottom line is -- made it clear that. Is what it meant that this city is not All Star Games lightly -- that doesn't assume that because of who he is he's vehicles. The gist of -- he said but he's played. I think -- understands it's easy for that to be misinterpreting and that's why they went way. Play in I'm thinking way out of his way to measure that we understood exactly what he made those comments NBA trade deadline coming up on Thursday -- -- How much effect the last two games before the deadline affect me just -- right. Deal numbers wise they need to do something to do you think they get it you all they have to do something but I don't think the games themselves this is why he's going to be motivated to do anything more than anything. Is suspect that he doesn't have bodies I mean you're talking about losing three guys this season. We retreated on and the Celtics already had process for us open before that -- -- talk a lot of other needs. And certainly you look at the point guard position and in the big -- of the Eagles busted that you know what Doc Rivers made it wouldn't -- the best player available that's. Shooting guard small forward -- not be surprised to see and had a guy come from one of those other positions and you know aside from that. They don't have a whole lot of flexibility to do anything because this delicate situation so it would not be surprising to me if they get a very minor deal done entry deadline wise. And then they -- one -- two guys who do you eat food in me. Well the Celtics going to -- -- every round winners of eight out of their last and a big reason is guys are playing a little better including Jeff Green -- once you know. Jeff Green has been greatly if we get everyone jumped on him too early and not think about as inconsistent minutes and recovery from surgery. Let's say you've -- -- insiders and listen okay. The reason like Jeff Green wasn't playing as much before because he wasn't playing well is. This thing works the better you play more -- -- plays and he. The one -- has jumped out to them the freedom see exactly what the outlook. Intelligence and green would run the floor and we just -- and wade -- -- find him now and hopefully get a rebound and take it. Which is always. The Phillies do. What we want to be such a great ball him being -- a -- and what does he present offensively I thought Jeff green was among the guys who relied way too much on Rondo to initiate the office to get them. In assists and they needed me and as opposed to just attacking the 14% of their defense is right now it's time rationale where. The answer -- really rants were able one topic that's burning to us -- Give you the Arrington gophers while -- -- nice being a teammate you know you're not used to that I CS NNE dot com -- program that's probably doing. You boot him already -- -- We are yeah my -- it out his class in session and the Celtics are you aware at the unofficial halfway point of the season. And the Celtics as some which he called trials thus far but the real challenges the real test that they're gonna face coming up they have a very typical road schedule right out the gate. And that's really gonna determine whether what we've seen leading up to the break is real or just -- is having a real nice run. My hash it out -- mid term report we aren't the unofficial halfway point of the season and had 28 in 24. Knowing where the Celtics have come from they got to feel good about where they aren't sure they got the injuries no Rondo sellinger Barbosa. But things are trending in the right direction if you can get -- Carter to. Or another player to -- to make some sort of impact you gotta feel good at least maybe being a contender in the east -- maybe for the NBA titles Iraq but being a contender in the east right below the Miami in May be in New York so. Think the Celtics are in good position as long as they antibodies it. Ball is wide open and is really for every spot behind Miami -- mean they're clearly and so does better than everyone else right now and the Celtics understand that and you're right they could use another body to. Well I just. I think this team more than anything else they need to understand that game now and so much harder because they've played with a lot of senses and not really -- a prepared for NC -- UC tournament which I haven't seen this we'll be seeing Jason Terry were to have seen in this one facility dating world that he isn't Rondo. -- the first about the bad is the biggest difference in that Celtics. Know very well. I've been having played them the other night so it'll be really interesting to see how the Celtics -- teams that are going to be much more prepared for what they've prison as far as on the court. How about some of the other. The association. That trade deadline is coming around which teams are going to be buyers and sellers either get a top of the list you've got to talk about the Dallas Mavericks and Mark Cuban who has made it clear. At the bank of QB is open for business well and -- yeah he's well he's Mark Cuban that again. Utley is certainly that there was this season has I think some definite knees and Cuban is not afraid to -- -- does and doesn't meet those needs. Didn't look at it seem like the tree and yet -- already made a nice -- nice move getting Jose Calderon -- he still could use a defensive minded wing and I know that there's also been out scouring immediately ask him looking for a small forward to not be surprised they make a legitimate run at one tomorrow importantly that is not out of the question I know for fact. That Detroit like I had and they they've -- him for awhile and it it's hot sellers that you got a lot -- west to start with the Phoenix as a they've got a new coach and the other. You looking at that roster there's a lot of guys that just aren't getting it done. And they've got reasonable conscious I think that was -- system to really make some moves and then you've got to look at. Phoenix Phoenix or Utah maybe I'll look at -- doesn't -- the team that you have to think. Yes they're gonna Mason was at his house deficit almost have to Berry -- good players. Frankly and they don't involved in building -- -- team is stuck in a place that you hate to be which is right in the middle of the back. They believe they can move one of those guys that can be just what they need to get over that maybe become one of the better teams -- It's not about individual players starting with a -- bills at. And also Jefferson. And yet and I would you tell you look at. Which of those -- did you material that's when you move and that's. As far as impact those guys are pretty comparable -- -- utilities which are going to bring you the most that's when you. -- he seems to be gone out. Gonna -- gone that makes the final because right now is that it is the team they've won a little bit this back to the middle of the pack. In the east and when you when your best player isn't happy he's made it clear he thinks you -- and you will pay him. You gotta do something about you either way it was in his way clearly cause I'm not gonna pay him right right and very. Party we unite here and its own level what -- seasons and knows what about Brandon Jennings Monta Ellis that backcourt while explosive at times doesn't seem to be. Really angry to -- on an NBA title when those guys. Yeah I is going to be Brandon and his situation is some ways is that what adjustments. And that is he is not happy with the situation in my what he's saying publicly he wants to be in a big market he wants to be in a team that. At least has a chance in his mind to compete in that Dallas Mavericks makes a lot of -- because they do and you know great at that point guard position. And you know it's it's no secret that Mark Cuban like him as well so I would not be surprised if those two teams find -- -- -- make that -- that. -- environment -- a few games Andrea Bargnani. Marcy Gordon tie in Austin Jay Jay -- what about those guys when Yani go local animal. Because they've been trying hard and well -- couple of final. He start to play a little bit better ability to the -- tennis it is about him courts I like him a lot and he certainly could be a guy that can bring being something back amateur. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- On Celtics talk Stevie he's the insiders rod BCS and a power Draper -- -- -- using hash tags Celtics saw. We'll see you next.
