A negative spin on the drafting of Marcus Smart

A negative spin on the drafting of Marcus Smart

It’s hard for me to fault the Celtics for selecting Marcus Smart with the 6th pick because I believe he was the best player available. Once you get past the lack of fireworks (see Love, Kevin) and the speculation about how this could impact Rajon Rondo’s future, you should be able to accept the fact [...]

Marcus Smart is coming to Boston (we think)

Marcus Smart is coming to Boston (we think)

Marcus Smart is athletic, tough and physical. He is also an elite defender. Unfortunately, he’s not a natural shooter. Another drawback is his position. He’s a point guard. What does this mean for Rajon Rondo? Or.. does this mean Avery Bradley is out? Celtics need a pure shooter in that trio. We have plenty of [...]
