Good friend Mike Gorman makes his first appearance on Celtics Stuff Live for the 2016-2017 Regular Season. We discuss the big win against the Grizzlies on Tuesday night, Isaiah Thomas' comments that they "turned the season around" and took a close look at the four most promising young players on the roster. In the second half of the show, Jon and Justin asked Mike to settle their twitter debate on the lengthy reviews involving the league office and his experiences with Scal and the third person in the broadcast booth. Don't miss this one - an hour of Mike Gorman to put you in the holiday spirit.
Jon and Justin kickoff the show discussing the Isaiah Thomas, Boogie Cousins, and Noel trade chatter along with new CBA as details have begun to emerge that have a significant impact on teams ability to trade and structure their plans for the future. With December 15th behind us and January 15th around the corner, the ratification of the new CBA should open the flood gates coming out of the holidays. A look back at the week, the play of of the second unit and a healthy roster are discussed as well as whether Jonas Jerebko or Kelly Olynyk should supplant Amir Johnson in the starting line-up. Enjoy the show!
Jon laments his correct prediction for the Celtics record over the past week at 1-3 and Isaiah's injury is not pegged as the culprit. While the injury has left the team without a go-to scorer in crunch time, it has also allowed Marcus Smart to showcase his passing abilities. Justin wonders if it is time for Olynyk to move into the starting line-up as was discussed during the preseason. Enjoy the show!
This week on Celtics Stuff Live, Jon and Justin discuss the flaws with the IT and D line-up in comparison to last season's team. How strangely some of the strengths and weaknesses have been opposites with the exception of the rebounding deficiencies that have consistently plagued the club. You had to know Boogie Cousins would be a topic of trade conversation as Justin eases on his boycott of any such trade as he has in the past. Jon also comes clean with his college bball allegiances as well, with Alma Mater UMaine having played his Duke Blue Devils over the weekend on Saturday. Enjoy the show!
