In the offseason, the Boston Celtics were relatively successful. They supplemented the weak link inside the team and got Porzingis, which made the Celtics’ lineup more complete. Recently, however, some internal problems broke out in the Celtics. Brogden and the Celtics have been at loggerheads and refused to participate in team activities. Tatum, the star of the team, is somewhat dissatisfied with the Celtics.
At present, the overall level of Celtic lineup is ok, including Tatum, Brown, Porzingis, Brogden, White, prichard, Hauser, Konerth, Horford, Lowe, Keta, Banton, Brissett, Kabengele and Mihajljuk.
Under the condition that the Celtics’ lineup is complete, there are some problems inside the team. It is reported that Brogden has been in trouble with the Celtics and refused to attend the activities organized by the Celtics.
When Brogden joined the Green Army, he actually came for the championship. However, after coming to the Green Army, there was always a big gap between reality and ideal.
Celtic didn’t give Brogden enough respect, they trusted the original players more. Brogden has been put on the bench since he came to Celtic. Although the Green Army verbally said that he would be given more scenes, in fact, at many critical moments, Brogden was not even qualified to play.
Brogden, who had some dissatisfaction with the Celtics, reached its peak this summer. The Celtics tried to trade Brogden with the Clippers for the sake of the team lineup. Although the three-way deal was finally terminated because the Clippers were worried about Brogden’s injury, the Celtics’ behavior has completely angered him and has not responded to any news from the Celtics so far.
This situation is not difficult to understand. Brogden came to the Green Army with hope, but now he has been put on the shelf, which is a disrespectful behavior for Brogden.
As far as the news is concerned, the only way for the two sides to reconcile is for Celtic to apologize to Brogden and promise not to trade him, and this matter will be solved.
Not only the problem of Brogden, but also the Celtics star Tatum has some dissatisfaction with the Green Army. This dissatisfaction is not because the team renewed the contract with Brown for as much as $300 million, but because of the team lineup.
Regarding Brown’s contract renewal, Tatum has already expressed his position in an interview with The Messenger Sports, which Brown deserves. More importantly, Tatum will have a contract renewal year next season. Brown has already got an annual salary contract of 60 million dollars. Imagine that Tatum should be higher than this, so he will not care about Brown’s big contract, but will be happy, so he can negotiate with the team.
Tatum was dissatisfied because he hoped the Celtics could find a point guard player to help him and Brown share some pressure in the regular season. At the beginning, the Green Army was a little reluctant to send Smart Tatum away. But the Green Army didn’t listen to Tatum’s advice. Let’s take a look at which players the Celtics have saved.
Konerth is 2.18 meters, the center position, the center position of Porzingis, the center position of Kabengele, the center position of Lowe, Horford can also play the center position, and there is a newly signed Keta, which is also the center position.
As many as six Celtic players are center positions, so they can send a center team directly. No wonder Tatum is dissatisfied with the team.
Looking at the current lineup of the Green Army, even if the two-tower lineup is used, it is more than enough. From this point of view, the starting lineup of the Green Army is likely to be Tatum, Brown, White, Horford and Porzingis. These five people have full offensive space and have the ability to shoot from the outside. They can also let Porzingis play the fourth position, Lowe start and Horford go to the rotation lineup, which has become an important coping point for the team. Rotate Brogden, prichard, Brissett, Lowe (or Horford) and Mihajljuk (or a center player).
From this point of view, the overall level of the lineup of the Green Army is also strong enough. However, as Tatum mentioned, the team actually lacks a real point guard. Tatum and Brown are prone to make mistakes when faced with high double-teaming. This is the consensus of the league. In the past, Smart helped to share some organizational tasks. No wonder Tatum was reluctant to leave Smart. If this problem is not solved, it will still be a big weakness in the playoffs in the future.
