  • perk.

  • You think Brad Stevens should be on the hot seat right now?

  • Hell, yeah.

  • He should be on the high seas and look, uh, the subject for me because you know how embedded I am with the Boston Celtics and the city of Boston.

  • You know, that's my home away from home.

  • But yes, because I'm watching this Celtic team and they lack accountability when you have an old guy old veteran like Gallinari who likes you up for 38 points like taking nothing away from him because he still can shoot the ball.

  • But you have enough, you have enough athletic wings and Jayson Tatum Jalen Brown shimmy.

  • Okay, let's Grant Williams to actually go out there and going him, and they're not doing it.

  • It shows me that Brad Stevens is just getting walked over there talking about Oh, it's not Brad Stevens.

  • That's not his.

  • He's not a guy that hollers.

  • Then what the hell are you here for if you're not gonna hold guys accountable?

  • I watched Jalen.

  • I watched Jason Taylor last night and gangs before that oh Power and complained to the referees take a bad shot after bad shot.

  • I watched Jalen Brown, not sprint back on defense.

  • That's lack of accountability, that is, coaching, not getting on their superstar players and then the top it off.

  • You watch a guy and I love Tristan Thompson.

  • I'm watching him catch the ball at the free throw line area, and he's trying to show everybody that he could go between his legs and take a guy off the dribble.

  • That's lack of accountability.

  • And that's saying I could do what I want as a road player, and that's that's disturbing.

  • I'm watching Daniel Tights walk into three pointers at the at the beginning of shot clocks.

  • As soon as they cross have caught the ball, swung his way instead of him going into a quick drop ahead dog, he's stepping into one shot question for you.

  • Big perk question for you, Big perk.

  • I'm gonna give you my time because I want you a question for you.

  • If that was Doc Rivers instead of Brad Stevens, could you tell the national audience what would have happened if the stuff you pointed out was happening with Tatum and Tyson?

  • All of those words?

  • What would Doc Rivers have done if those Doc Rivers and what happened and those things that you just explain guys were doing on the basketball court with no accountability.

  • If that was Doc Rivers, your coach in Boston, when y'all won the title in oh eight when you went to the finals in a Game seven in 2010, what would Doc Rivers have done and stuff like that was happening?

  • Oh, he would have met us at half court.

  • He would have called time out and would have met you at half court and got on you.

  • I remember one time I called myself taking the free throw line jump shot, doctor me out in the first two minutes of the game and told me, Know your role, be a star in your role and set me to the second half and put Big Baby in.

  • But look, here's another thing.

  • Guess what.

  • If that was Doc Rivers right now coaching this team, this same team minus Gordon Haywood that went to the Eastern Conference finals, this Celtic team that we like wouldn't be surprised, got high hopes that maybe come out of the Eastern Conference, he will be on the hot seat and people will be calling for his job.

  • Hell, he might be fined by now, So don't give me all this.

  • This is not Brad demeanor.

  • What is he there for?

  • What is he there for?

  • If he's not going to hold people accountable that I would say that I was, I would say this.

  • There is legitimate criticism of Brad Stevens.

  • You know, like start with started with Robert Williams.

  • Why isn't he starting at the five?

  • He should be starting, and they should ride him as long as they can for his defense like they should.

  • Like.

  • There are things that I that I disagree with with Brad Stevens here and there.

  • Everyone can do a better job and everyone's up for evaluation, including Brad Stevens.

  • But the bottom line is the Celtics kind of get a pass to like the Lakers.

  • Kemba Walker is not Kemba.

  • Walker hasn't been this season.

  • Let's be honest, and they got three guys they get their offense from, and right now it's not.

  • I'm not making excuses for guys for not hustling, but Marcus Smart is the linchpin of the defense.

  • In that way.

  • He's also the other guy who can handle in the backcourt so you're missing two pieces that help your team go.

  • The Celtics don't have the margin for error that other elite teams do.

  • They can't be.

  • They can't have no real Kemba Walker and also not Marcus Smart and then also not get a good enough effort.

  • I agree with your roster construction than coaching.

  • They got their two all stars.

  • They got their rising stars and Jaylen Brown and Jason.

  • Zero excuses for being two games under 100 in the Eastern.

  • Let me get in here, Max Kellerman.

  • You're wrong.

  • And the reason why you're wrong is because if we're sitting here and we're talking about a team that's winning, but they may not make it back to the conference finals, that's a different argument.

  • We're talking about the Boston Celtics team that's under 500.

  • There is no excuse for a team with Jayson Tatum and Jalen Brown in the sport of basketball to be under 500.

  • That is about the coach not having the pulse of the team because we know that Brad Stevens knows what he's doing.

  • We know that he knows what he's doing from an excess and old standpoint, depending the conference finals three times in the last four years.

  • He's 1 56% of his games that we know that he knows what he's doing.

  • So what is it?

  • There does come a point in time where you have to ask yourself the question.

  • Are you the voice in the air of the player that can get them to maximize whatever potential they have?

  • And what K P is pointing to?

  • What Kendrick Perkins is pointed to is a coach.

  • Nobody is questioning his acumen.

  • Nobody is questioning his competence.

  • Nobody's questioning what he is.

  • Resume.

  • What you're looking at right now is saying, Are these players tuning him out?

  • Danny Ages making is going around the public circuit in Boston talking about Yo, We're not giving effort.

  • We're not giving enough effort When the executive of the team is talking about the effort of the players without saying so, he is talking about the coach because that is the coach's job.

  • To make sure it's fair, next out effort wise.

  • And that's not what happened in Boston right now, and if it were anybody else, that's fair.

  • But guys like they have, they have.

  • They have a couple of real good scoring wing guys, right?

  • They run too many, I suppose.

  • And as I said, certain guys could be getting more minutes.

  • They really the real issue is the guy who's really supposed to organize and coordinate.

  • The offense isn't really there in Kemba.

  • It hasn't been Kemba this year, and the and the heart and soul of the defense is really Marcus smart, and he's not there either, So you can point to Brad Stevens and I'm not saying you're not making legitimate points.

  • But before you do, I have to look at the roster.

  • That's Danny Ainge, and I got to look at injuries.
