they give up a second round pick to get Tyler Zeller and Isiah Thomas not that. Not bad at all. What that is aid that's some good sleuthing to go back and tracked that down and yell out and that I think Alec go for a couple reasons Paul and I want your take on this.

As Celtics blog talking on a bad beat beat pick and roll offense has been how Isiah Thomas should help happen in the long term. If he's not a long term Celtic I feel like he's a player any contract

Jessica Camerato of basketballinsiders.com joins the show to talk about Marcus Smart, the starting lineup, and trade deadline.
Marcus Thornton there has operated bass. And I wouldn't be surprised he Tayshaun Prince they'll put Brad Stevens seems to be completely enamored by him and loves everything he does. Well you know he's one of those players are kind of just does everything right even at his advanced stage you know doesn't have that same math was as he had runners with the pistons. But he's still a great guy to have on the team because unlike Gerald Wallace who never played basketball right. You know he's played well he's very good defender but he turned on a special office he always had the wrong thing but he relied on as apt criticism on both sides of the court. Tayshaun Prince a little bit different. He relies on his length. But yes to be Smart about how he's using that blank so. I think he's the Seve is the vets sees the savvy vet like that if you could look it up in the dictionary they're Tayshaun Prince does is he does everything correctly. And he played like it showed he got traded is pulling crunch time two days after

WHDW - Greg Dickerson Joins the Show to talk Celtics
Sam and Ben talk with Greg Dickerson about how fun this year's Celtics team is to watch as well Jeff Green trade ideas.
most frustrated person and I've railed against him for a long time. Jeff Green I can't stand him I can't stand watching imply. There's nights where he just goes off and you're like holy crap the mavericks and he came out aggressive he was shooting at everything it's been he scored the first seven points of the game Tommy heights and was going crazy scene he's the best. One dribble attack guards insist can dunk everything. Any team any drop late 3534. Points and it was great Jeff green is like of course gonna do that's when your party down forty or. Give a forties it was it's a classic Jeff Green frustration and. When the games tight he's too tentative to be aggressive and it's very frustrating to watch because you see you see the ability it's not like. Remember when they had Gerald Green when he just came and high school the and you saw the glimpses of the ability but he knew while he's still a ways away. That and Jeff Greg Gerald Green wasn't doing what Jeff Greene could do. But it was kind of fun to say oh man he's got all the ability in the world weekly develops Jeff green's . Plateaued and turn it development there's no more waiting anymore either has to bring it every Nader and he's done yeah at I am just. With the team the way it's built now I'd like to see Jeff Green dawning get some other guys some time especially when you're gonna go to this release small lineup. In your backcourt which transitions over to the three. When you're getting a really solid that I don't mean Jeff Green . Around to see I would disagree I don't really like Jeff Green as before and that small lineup with sellinger at the five if you're gonna go small I think. Jeff greens are really the one player in your team who can play both the three in the four. And he's like kind of that for her can stretch the floor we need a small I think he's I don't think there's anyone else on the team who can really gives him enough size of that small lineup. However Sam you said something earlier not today but in past episodes about Brandon Bass shooting the threes would you like to see. Rondo Bradley Smart. Bassett the four cylinder at the five and just haven't chuck
have mentioned that he's practicing shooting threes that all good attitude set Jeff green is way better plus Jeff green is much more athletic and Brandon Bass . And if this team especially when that small lineup is all about running. Defense transition basketball Jeff were you gonna want Jeff Green on the wing opera and invest. Fair enough right here's my question to you if you don't wanna see Jeff Green at their which players are you excited about seeing develop. Other than mark is Smart because everyone I feel like that's the
in the offseason or what but not a what's been talked about Jeff Green . Do you see Jeff Green being a part of this team for the entirety of the season and the next couple years movement through future. I sent a secular civic and try to trade him two days ago that they try to trading yesterday I think any on the contrary. I think you'll be double fault the ball on the back. Are Jeff green is is one of those guys cities is just maddening to watch because. He's gonna go up there in one night and
