You're ignoring the schedule. Teams the Cetlics played while Olynyk was healthy: Memphis, Miami, Houston, San Antonio, Portland, San Antonio, Indiana. Teams the Celtics have played since he's been out: ATL (win), Charlotte (win), Memphis (loss), Cavs (win), Bucks (twice - split), Denver (win), Knicks (win). I'd say easier schedule has something to do with the fact the Celtics are 6-2 w/o KO. I mean the Cavs looked awful that night, the Bucks are terrible, and the Knicks game Sunday was one of the worst games I've ever seen (if you're a Knicks fan - I rather enjoyed the beatdown). I'd also say the Celtics are learning how to play Stevens' system now that they're 22 games in. Don't blame the Celtics misfortunes on a rook
Our misfortunes are the result of playing Bradley at the point and playing an overmatched rookie over our best big, Humphries. Brad has now figured it out.
Numbers don't lie.....
So we should stop develping the big who has is younger and has a higher ceiling, so we can play a big much older big that won't be here next year, and has already hit his ceiling, all so we can win five or six more games on the year?
Sounds like a smart investment. Banner 18 here we come.
So you are in favor of losing?
