Adam and Mike are joined by Bobby Manning (CelticsBlog, CLNS Media, and Boston Sports Journal) to take stock of the team at the start of 2022, trying to make sense of a team whose last 4 games involved:

  • a horrific loss to a G-League version of the Timberwolves
  • a 4-42 showing from deep against the Clippers
  • a wire-to-wire victory against the Suns – who just happen to be a Top 2 or 3 team in the league
  • a by-the-skin-of-their-teeth win against a normally hapless Magic team that was also without key players.

In short… what exactly *is* this Celtics team?

The guys begin by exploring just how relevant it is that the Celtics have lost more games to COVID over the last 1.5 season than just about every other team and wondering whether the Jays are too ball dominant – and if the solution is simply putting more ‘connectors’ on the roster. They also examine whether or not effort or focus have been – and/or remain – primary issues facing the team this season, and how much blame Ime and Brad should shoulder for development of young players (or lack thereof).

Additionally, Adam, Mike, and Bobby talk about when – if ever – the Celtics might need to explore trading Jaylen, and the circumstances that would have to come about to help the Front Office make that type of monumental decision. But don’t worry Celtics fans – nobody wants to trade Jaylen now!
