Is history repeating itself with Celtics latest star-duo?


      Is history repeating itself? Are we in the midst of doing something very drastic? This writer doesn't believe it needs to be done, but I feel some media members and fans do. Before I dive in let me say this, we drafted two studs, both of which are still young. There are not many NBA players willing to come to Boston. I'm talking studs, stars, guys who move the needle. 

     We all remember the Antoine Walker, Paul Pierce days, there were some wonderful moments, yet only one time did they reach the ECF. Early on they were coached by the rat, whose name I will not use. He never adapted to the NBA and wasted a lot of young talent. That group had their ceiling and it wasn't bringing in any banners. Although Jim O'Brien did a great job getting them into the ECF where they completed a historical epic comeback. fast forward and Toine is gone. It becomes the Truth's team and still no titles. We all know what happens in history. 

     Has this duo of Tatum and Brown experienced more success then Toine and PP, especially early in their careers. Reaching the ECFs a few times. Both players have the ability to lead a team, but can they do it together? Last season we dealt with Covid and a weak roster. This season Covid has reared it's ugly head once again. Plus the injury bug has bitten us. I'm not making excuses I'm just sharing facts. 

      With that said, both the Jays, are very talented and if given the right roster can become very special. The question is what do our readers feel?? I need some feedback. My thought is this you aren't going to bring back anything better in a trade in my opinion, your also not drafting anyone at the caliber of a JB or JT. The floor is yours Celtics fans!

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then.
