I genuinely think.they are a little better without Ja. You can key on him on offense and he's terrible on defense. With Adams on there they defend much better have a ton of length to disrupt passing lanes and block shots. And the offense is more balanced.

Ja will keep getting better and if he can get good defensively like Curry did he can be a special player
Tyus Jones went 1-10 or something like that. Ja puts up 40. They are still a very good team without him but they aren’t better. Maybe Jenkins just overthinked it this series. Adams should be in there

He’s very fast in approaching top 5 status

I dont see him passing kd, embiid, jokic, luka, or steph in the next season. I also would take a healthy kawhi over him. As i said weeks ago he is a borderline top 10 player which is just fine. That particular poster love to act like since IN MY OPINION he isn't a top 5 player currently, it somehow means i don't think is very good player even though i made it clear for me he around 10th best

There are two schools of thought on this...one could argue other than Luka he's the best player under 25. That's a bigger piece than a lot of those guys as result.

That one has to sting Sixer fans. Like taking Darko over Melo, Wade, Bosh bad.

They undoubtedly played the Warriors better once Ja went down. Maybe they just match up better with this particular team without him.

Well he made rotation changes that should have been made with Ja there such as Adams getting more minutes

Jenkins fucked up, they aren’t a better team w/o Ja. COY in the regular season but he hasn’t been that in the postseason

It's a 1 game series at this point... and there's a lot of variables when it all comes down to one game:
  • Will Tatum's shot be on, or not?
  • Will the Celtics as a whole have their shot working, or not?
  • Will Giannis shoot reasonably well from the line and 3 pt land?
  • Which team turns the ball over more?
  • Which team will be better in the clutch?
My sports anxiety level is an 8 right now... it'll be over a 10 when it's actually game time.

I'm glad the Celtics are at home. Let's do this thing.
