Brad Stevens perfectly describes Marcus Smart's mentality

Brad Stevens perfectly describes Marcus Smart's mentality

After suffering a dislocated ankle and a fractured tibia in his Boston Celtics debut, Gordon Hayward underwent another procedure Wednesday to remove the plate and screws from his previous surgery, the team announced.

"Right now, they're young fellas and in order not to be young fellas they've got to persevere".

Reportedly unable to work out a deal during their in-season negotiations, Smart can accept a $6.1 million qualifying offer from the Green and hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent next season if he so chooses.

The good news on that front is that they have a pair of All-Stars coming back next season that missed the playoffs due to injury. I always leave everything on the court, every game.

But after losing key men Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving - and important bench player Daniel Theiss - to season-ending injuries before the playoffs even began, there is no doubt the C's exceeded expectation during a hard year.

Attorney: Wildwood officers arresting client was 'overreaction'
In a press release on Wednesday, police say Weinman "forcibly struck" the officer in the torso and caused the camera to turn off. A bystander posted video online showing a Wildwood police officer punching Emily Weinman in the head during the Saturday arrest.

"I think it's a lot of pressure on them", O'Neal told TNT. "It was one of those games we lost that we should have won".

It's apparent you can take the player out of Oklahoma, but not the Oklahoma out of the player.

"I want him here all the time", Jackson said about Irving. "I know it creates headlines and talk radio buzz, but from my standpoint, I'm not anxious".

Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier did not shoot well in Game 7, but for the most part they all with Tatum all produced when the team needed more from them after Hayward and Irving got hurt. "I think it's got some decent depth", he said.

The money will be a huge issue for the Celtics and they need to either clear cap space trading away several role players or just let him walk, as Brad Stevens really trusts his deep squad. Ben Simmons could share the frontcourt with Hayward and Al Horford, giving the much-needed help in terms of rebounding, scoring, and protecting the rim.
