In response to Mployee8's comment:
I could tell he was a keeper whether or not he was a starter. You dismiss players like Fav, Pressey, Babb etc based not on what you see but on whether/where they were drafted, if they scored a double-double in college and stuff like that which is meaningless in the real world. There have been plently of lottery picks that have failed and just as many undrafted or 2nd rounders that have made it.
I dismissed Fav?
Crazy or senile, which are you?
wozzy and I were arguing because wozzy is already declared Fav a starting Center in the NBA when Fav has yet to play a single regular season game.
I said Babb was not going to make the Celtics roster because he's nothing special.
And Pressey will just be a career backup PG.
Has Pressey played in this game yet?
Fav has plenty of experience in Europe which is more experience than Oly has had so why do you need to see him more regardless of whether he'll be a starter or backup. Everything we've seen says he's for real and a worthy pickup whether he starts or backsup ... Doesn't matter, all that matters is that he's a Celtic.
Pressey could replace AB with more coaching and playing time and neither you nor I are in a position to know what the brain trust sees or is thinking. My eyes say he's in the mix but probably only as a backup this year. I'll reserve starter talk till I see how he adjusts to the pro game later this year or earlier next season.
Babb is a ghost right now since we only saw him briefly. But, somebody sees something and brought him into camp and then kept him in the D-League. Maybe one can read into that and maybe not but if he should be brought back up later this season that would be an eye opener and would tell me that the coach/gm know more than we do. Thus he shouldn't be dismissed until he is ...
