The New Celtics:

Aaron Nesmith

 

 

Janey Needs A Shooter.

Part I.

Well, Danny got his shooter. I don't know if he can be a star in the NBA, but he sure can shoot. Best shooter in the Draft. He shot over 50% from the College 3-Point line. Nasty shooter. He can shoot it straight up. Off picks. From the Corner. Off the dribble. He can shoot it a yard past the NBA 3-point line at the Angle. But so-what?

Well, you have to work hard on your shot to shot over 50% from the Three. He is a gym rat, who goes into the gym by himself at night to shoot Threes. You can see he has been dedicated to working on his jumper for years to achieve the numbers he achieved shooting Threes last season. He has that knack for hitting Threes. Plus, he often gets a free lane to the basket, because defenders fear his elite Shoot from Three.

Shooting 52% from Three is a great number. You have to remember that the philosophy behind all the 3-point shooting is that if you shot 50% on Twos than you will have 10 points on 10 shots. But if you could shoot 35 to 40% from Three, you would garner 11 or 12 points on 10 shots. I don't we saw a guy shooting 50% from Three when that philosophy was born.

If Nesmith can shoot 50% from Three? That's 15 points per 10 shots. That is an incredible number. It kind-ah blows up that metric. I was never a fan of that metric, but when it leads to a shooter like Nesmith it is difficult to argue with it. Plus, it will help all the drivers and attackers the Celtics have going to the hole. It will naturally create more space for Kimba, Tatum and Brown. And also making kick outs to the shooter a much more viable option.

He is not just a shooter, he can steal the ball and go coast to coast. “We’re very excited about Aaron," Ainge said. "We need shooting. He’s a long, wing shooter that can stretch the floor. He can shoot right now. We don’t have to teach him to shoot." He also gives good effort on Defense.

He can be a pest inside the arc on defense. Good hands to slap the ball out on D. He has some length and good long arms. He's not a Guard. He is a legit NBA Small Forward. He can stand up in D in the Paint. He often covered the power forward as well. He will get lost in the middle on D sometimes.

It is very difficult to look at their first two picks and not think about the Heats' beating the crap out of the Celtics in the Play Offs, with those bizarre Threes, from not feet, but yards behind the arc.

So I think this is Danny's response to Tyler Hero and Duncan Robinson. "We’re very excited about Aaron. We need shooting. He’s a long, wing shooter that can stretch the floor. He can shoot right now. We don’t have to teach him to shoot," Ainge said. “He can come in the gym and outshoot most of our guys right this second. I’m guessing Jayson Tatum will have a little dispute with that, but I think he’s a guy we had our eyes on and projected that he would be available at 14, although we knew it would be tight."

Those two guys bombed away the Celtics out of the Play Offs. “You know, an absolute sniper, a guy who’s going to make life easier for the creators of the offense, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker," Nesmith said. "[I am] a guy that is always going to be there and work hard and earn his stripes and do it on both sides of the floor. I want to be great. I want to be the best player I can be and so that includes defense. I’m going to give my all and the best effort I have to that side of the floor and with my size, length and athleticism, being able to guard multiple positions."

Both their 1st round picks have elite range on their jumpers. I've saw Payton Pritchard hit a Three 8 to 10 feet behind the 3-point line, like Hero and Robinson. I don’t know how they do it? But Ainge went after two guys who were two of the best 3-point shooter in the Draft. Statistically, Nesmith was the best. But he wasn’t really a move shooter or a deeper than the arc shooter. Pritchard shot more on the move and further beyond the arc.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But it is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:

Trump is a treasonous maniac, and he has to start being treated as such. He is a clear and present danger to our democracy, and has to start being treated as such. It is time for real Americans to stand up and take out Country back. It is time for (R)s to start remember they are Americans first. 

 

If you believe that the Election is being fixed by Democrats. Then you are stupid. You then believe that the Republican Governor of Pennsylvania is fixing the Election for Biden. That's treasonously stupid.

Then you also must believe that the Republican Governor of Georgia is fixing the Election for Democrats? THAT IS INCOMPREHENISBLY STUPID! Because if you believe that than the Republican Governor of Arizona is also trying to cheat the Election for Biden.

THAT ALSO MEANS THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT CONMAN EVER TELLS THE TRUTH.

That means that you are complicit in Trump Traitors (Putin's Bitch) open, obvious, and racist attempt to subvert the Vote of all real Americans.

Everyone knows Biden won the Popular vote in historic numbers. Even Putin's crybaby bitch.

AND... it also means that YOU insanely believe that raving lunatic Rudy understands the truth or reality in any way shape or form. And if you do? Then you should go back to Russia, where Putin can be your best friend.  

Hey Trump, go pee in a hole!
