In response to Petey62's comment:
System or no system, Jeff Green is NOT a threat from beyond 18 feet. Sully, AB nor Oly are threats from beyond 18 feet. That's part of this system's problem. It allows for guys like Sully and Oly and Fav to hoist up ill-advised, low percentage 3-pointers. None of those guys are consistent enough to be effective using that s-h-o-t as part of any offensive system.
And anyone who things Pressey can s-h-o-o-t is delusional. AB also is not a consistent enough s-h-o-o-t-e-r for a system like the Knicks that encourage hoisting up 3's.
There is no Celtics player capable of being a decent 3-point percentage s-h-o-o-t-e-r that would make Steven's system effective.
You have a guy like Sully who is capable of going for 25 and 20. He needs to LIVE in the post - his post game is THAT GOOD. There is no reason in no system that he should be asked to do anything else. For that reason, we see too many games like today's 8 points and 8 rebounds.
i mostly agree, but Sully doesn't have many "moves" once he gets the ball. his reaction plays are as good as anybody i can remember, but he appears to have that Antoine Walker-type need to show that he can do everything, especially with the 3's. so far it's been minimal and when he tosses up a 3 that clangs or gets nothing but air, he does seem to take the hint and refocus. so mostly good signs there.
but he really does need to develop some post moves. there is no excuse for any relatively big man not to develop a baby hook at the very least. maddening that so few bother.
and the team definitely needs someone who can just plain s-h-o-o--t (now i understand all the hyphens. lmao) the rock.
