The 15th roster spot: Immediate fit or future investment?

 In today's game we look at what Brad Stevens had to say about the final roster spot and your Celtic Knight tries something a little different. 

“You’ll look at it and you will decide, okay, is there somebody that fits that need and who’s really excited to be here if that’s the case,” Stevens explained. “Or is it do you feel like you’ve got that all filled and maybe invest in a younger player. And so we’re going to assess all that over the next few days and try to figure it out.”

There is a lot to absorb in this quote. It ultimately makes sense. Is there a real true fit left in the buyout market that wants to play in a limited role? Does winning a ring matter to them? We have already witnessed a few bigger names sign elsewhere. Will.... Will Barton want to come here?  Does veteran Tony Snell fit that role?

Now on to the game. As we focus on some of our other players.... 

Payton Pritchard 

He always ready to show he belongs in the league. Let's see what he has tonight! PP from way downtown! Bing Bang Boom! His defense has been solid tonight. If he had regular consistent minutes he carve out a very nice career. Unfortunately he didn't play his best and was taken advantage of on defense. 

Luke Kornet

The Unicorn of all centers in the NBA, is playing as well as expected. Let's see what he offers tonight! His defense has been fundamentally sound! Didn't play enough to make an impact tonight. 

Mike Tikka Muscala

This dude has shown that he has the range to be a key player for the C's. Mike has the size to get down low and score. Mike has been coming off screens well and knocking down his shots tonight. Tikka has a push shot?! Give me some of that! He dunks! Ladies and gentlemen Tikka DUNKS! Give him a Tommy point for the fire he's playing with. Mike is showing me that maybe we don't need a buyout guy. Dude played as well as you could have asked for. Except for his last shot, come on man... 

Sam Hauser 

Coming off screens and hitting threes with ease. He works very hard off the ball to get to his spot. His defense is suspect, but the effort is there. Need to see more out of him offensively tonight being short handed. Haus Money with the biggest shot of the game! 

Other Thoughts, Blake Griffin giving up the body for the charge. Hitting threes and driving to the rack. Hes been an asset off the bench, and is really a quality teammate. Mark these words, Blake Griffin will get key minutes in the playoffs vs the Giannis. Blake has held his own tonight on both ends. 

C's ball movement has been spectacular tonight. 

C's have given everything they have tonight, forcing the Bucks into OT. 

GWill doing what he does! Solid D, and hitting threes! 

C's D is giving Giannis the three point shot. Which he does not do well. 

C's D has been very solid overall. Forcing the Bucks into a lot of turnovers. 

MB has been as smooth as R and B music out there. 

Cs played their butts off but came up short. I used to worry about the Bucks but after tonight I'm not. 

Celtic Pride! Bleed Green!

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.

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. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
