Rayshawn Buchanan:

Welcome to the next edition of missing the point I am Guy Hollywood ray with my guy one half or I guess yeah one yeah what two thirds of the basketball crew has to say? My God a real BK Bob Kelly. How you doing tonight

Rob Kelly:

man? I'm good man. I happy to be back on the air talking Celtics basketball the last time the two of us were together for an official Celtics podcast. It was a somber mood. To put it lightly. I'm happy we're here already. My favorite thing about basketball season is like the offseason was like this. We're already sitting here talking about next season schedule and we're getting ready to go what season starts? What? October so? Yeah, I'm

Rayshawn Buchanan:

told October 18. This film will be in touch shortly obviously. Media Day should be late September in August so obviously yeah, so preseason first game starts at just Charlotte I think October 2, which is Sunday, so I'll be there most likely we're going to that game but yeah, I'm excited to be like this is always a fun time to see like Oh, like this should be a win just to the probably a scheduled loss like so. There's a bunch of optimism that comes with the schedule so let's get into it. So yeah, so right away. We just alluded to it a few seconds ago but I told the 80s we get we get Philly off rip parts the I love that but just what are your What are your thoughts about that opening the season with Philadelphia

Rob Kelly:

you know it's it's a big game early I know it's it's tough to have a Big Game and Game one of the 82 game schedule but it's definitely going to set the tone for early in the season you know it Philadelphia to me is a is a tear below the Celtics a going into the season I know that that was different the past couple seasons but I think they're clearly you know, Celtics are in that one two conversation the Sixers are in that 3456 conversation I think it's going to set a tone for who the Celtics team is and what they expect because I just think if they come out you know what I mean they blow six was opening nightmare and it's it's on it's on but if it's a loss or like they come out looking like they did it beginning last season we could be in for a tough tough to get in stretch but I like it rivalry open or not you know and beating heart and it'd be fun

Rayshawn Buchanan:

Yeah, I mean it should be late I mean listen, I noticed that a lot of turmoil and fillers offseason as well. You know just trying to figure out what they're gonna do next and you know, they got tons of you know, hit with NBA champion chargers you know with with the signings appreciate soccer miss some of the they brought in,

Rob Kelly:

their dudes honestly do like, they still got their news. Why?

Rayshawn Buchanan:

No, of course, but I'm like, listen, I think tampering in any sports, the job, listen, teams, teams talk all the time. players aren't real time. Like, I know. They don't want us to make you see him. I could say, you know, like, like, it's like it's not happening, but we know that it is like there's just just this except for what it is.

Rob Kelly:

It's 2022 Every one is a text message away, bro. It's like a bot

Rayshawn Buchanan:

that's that looks fine. Okay, call it a day. But it's gonna it's a charity, whatever. But yeah, so open up affiliates good. They gotta back to back right away, which I don't love. As a guest, Miami and against Orlando. Honestly, I don't know about you. I hate back to backs. I think to me, when we're at a stage now where we don't need to see back to backs happen in any NBA and if they do happen, influence should be no more than one or two. And they still have about four or five. You know, and they're in the regular season. So I mean, yeah, so what are your thoughts on that?

Rob Kelly:

I heard a thing today they actually have 13 Back to backs on the season. And it's it's actually when you look at some of the back to backs there's a tough one there's an LA back to back that's gonna be tough book. Most of them are kind of favorable. I think the Miami Orlando one might be one of the toughest ones, man. It's like you have Denver and Utah as a back to back or you have Toronto, it's

Rayshawn Buchanan:

gonna be tough though. And those things are healthy. Well, you know, Utah made that big tracer that

Rob Kelly:

they've been able to save but Utah kind of rebuilding but like, Yeah, I mean, it depends on what direction they had headed. And I guess but like, I just think that's that's one of the Celtics, they actually played Detroit twice, um, back to backs, which is kind of scary because we all know what Detroit does to the Celtics team for some reason, but it just I can't I like that in the schedule that they have some easy back to back the one. There's one thing that stood out to me about the schedule, man is the weird West Coast trips. Did you notice that like, you know, normally, you have a West Coast trip, you play like Sacramento Golden State, the Lakers, you know what I mean? You just go right down the coast. And this year, they're starting out like on the East Coast and they have to travel west and they have to come back east that just the Those are the things that I feel like trip this Celtics team up is when they don't feel mentally prepared or like they don't feel like they're mentally there. That's when they start to trip up and that's when you start to see 18 turnovers again, you start to see, you know, the bad shooting action Jaylen Jayson it just that that's what worries me less than the back to back about the schedule. But all in all, man I just I'm I'm excited for for the the December to January run. I didn't want to get there yet, but I kind of forgot what I was gonna say. And so I'll just jump into I still

Rayshawn Buchanan:

want to look at November. Yeah, even Yeah, I know. I won't get there but you've been so it's a me I feel like the schedule. The schedule is pretty favorable in October and November even with the back to backs like, I feel like the toughest opponent will be Memphis and Denver. And obviously Miami today. They know they got to Dallas at home. Right on basically bunnies. So that should be pretty exciting to Sacramento comes here on Black Friday. So that that should be pretty that that's super easy when it's probably gonna be a magnate game because I feel like that's that's what it usually is. But that's also a stretch that has three or four nights. But to me, I think they got to hit the ground running. They got to blow through teams in November and October November. And they could muster that December stretch where that down the road for about two weeks. So it's like you got Brooklyn, Toronto, Phoenix daughter state clippers then the Lakers. And then you ended up coming back home. We just don't well, no, that's that next Friday night on December 19. And looks like all your teams. Ah, that's yeah, that's brutal. Like that will be the early test in the season. Obviously, you know, we don't NBA they always say Oh, well, you know, to me in the season doesn't start until you know Christmas Day so but they need to hit the ground running I think that's a me especially at the how last year started like they were so terrible early on. And you know, fans were affiliated players were I'm sure he did like, you know, no wonder watch team they would get booed out the building every night. I know. I was there for that for that first two or three months of the season. So they got to hit the ground running Tatum and gentlemen in particular has to be the guy has to go running. Not wait to January to be like oh, like let me start getting 30 At night know from night one. Get out there do your thing and say whether you're coming into Boston, whether would a visiting team. I am the guy not a guy. I have the marquee. I am the main event I under so stopper, you know where I'm going with this. You know, I have I moved to people come to see. So he got that's when he asked to take over and once again, I don't want to turn it into a Jayson Tatum show. But I'm just thinking about, you know, these certain trips. I'm expecting him. I'm expecting jVb I'm respecting the Celtics for to say you know what? We're going to continue to be road warriors. Right get out. That was a thing last year. We are war warriors. We continue to do our thing. So if that's the case, you need to make sure that you handled business especially on that debt first big what what was your trip? So what other stuff are the other spots on the on the schedule set out to you?

Rob Kelly:

So you talk about October November? I just went through it. So there's about 24 games I might have missed a game or two about 24 games before December. Right? You're right. You're right that that that early schedule man is a cupcake schedule. The toughest teams you have on here. I want to call a cupcake but I mean you have the Sixers, you have the Grizzlies. And you have the bowls and the Mavs. So that's really Sixers bowls, MAVs and grizzlies. Other than that you're playing teams like the Cavs the magic the wizards the pistons, the thunder, the pelicans, we don't know what they look like but those Ime you should be able to be done with wizards the Hornets you know teams teams the Celtics should absolutely be no doubt about it on the Celtics best night they're better than every single one of those teams. So to me, I think the successful first two months of the season with something like a 2418 and six 616 At eight at absolute worst right? absolute worse of just teaming 16 and eight going into December I'll be happy anything worse than that? I think I think a trouble in the water because then you're right. The schedule gets tough Quick Man gets let's let's let's

Rayshawn Buchanan:

let's stay there now right because obviously, you know we speak about what they should be coming out the game that we have already alluded to how they should be hitting the ground running like Dude, there's no other way to say that. But just to say it like they have to hit the ground running. They have to be on top of the game from the job. How do you feel they handle being the hunted and the East Coast? Oh, was in Great Bend David consistently climbing you know again they're falling and getting their fall and getting they're falling but now now that they're dead now that it's human needs that just made the finals obviously they didn't win it but you know teams are going to use them as a measuring stick to see where they are and see how close they are to making it to the playoffs or potentially getting too into a deep run so just how do you think they handle being a team that most nice people are coming in during they give their best shots on a regular basis?

Rob Kelly:

You know it's hilarious is you can tell we've been doing a podcast about the Celtics for almost two and a half goddamn years together because I literally had this thought on the way home tonight where I was like man how how are they going to handle not being the question ones not being the underdogs not being the You can't break us up not being the disrespected you know, being being the guys that are respected because we've seen the history of these of this this core, where as soon as they have expectations, and as soon as they have a weight on their shoulders, they have a tendency to not play their best basketball I'm hoping you may is the reason why that doesn't happen why they don't crater and don't fall into their expectations and don't succumb to the weight of their expectations. What I'm trying to say it does it worries me a little I'm not gonna lie. Like I literally sat there for 20 minutes and I like oh my god, man. Like imagine if they come out of the gate like shit and and we have to go into this whole dark Celtics hole again next year. Like, I'm not ready for that, but I don't think they're gonna do it. I just feel like he may is the reason why, in my opinion, I feel like he comes out and he doesn't let them even think about that. You know that mean? He that he doesn't let that creep into their brain because if you remember man, that carry year where you know they went to the ECF carry is coming back and all of a sudden Jaylen is talking about four championships. And like, there was just there was a lot of outside noise that I feel like they're feeding into. I don't see that happening with this team. You see, Jayson at the podium. You see Jaylen at the podium. You see these dudes were they're just so laser focused in on you know, being the best night in night out be gaming and game out. giving their best efforts all this different stuff that he may as has imprinted in their brains. I think that we'll be able to handle it. I really do. I really, really do. It does. I'm not gonna lie. There's a little like 2% inside of me that's like me imagine how fucking dark that would get how bad that would get so fast. Wave they've they're 500 Going into December. Man. Can you imagine? The shitstorm on Celtics? Twitter, it would be unfathomable.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

Right. No, I mean, and honestly, it would be warranted just like it was last year. And I know, you know, we ended up defending it like oh, no, like No Have patience. Now I'm beyond the patient's point. You got to come out. Going in. So to me on my yoke? I don't I don't know. I think my I don't have an answer for it. They're gonna handle being the Hudson Well, I just know from previous or past experience. They don't handle prosperity, wealth. They don't. They have they have not handled frustrated well under burst. He was there they did to an extent under the dark era. And because they'd already won. So they already knew what to expect if they had to finally get over the hump in order to say, okay, you know what, it don't matter what building doesn't matter. What time what time of the game. We're gonna give it our best. And I've said this before on the show, and I want to bring it back because it ties into what we're we're currently speaking about. Chuck Daly, who is one of the greatest coaches of all time costar, one of the, you know, all school rivals, the Detroit Pistons and obviously, you know, I said Thomas Johnson and Bill of beers, and As Rob

Rob Kelly:

mentioned, the USA team.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

And Isiah Thomas paid him the greatest compliment where he spoke about how one he talked about Chuck toes from the neck up. But he also said, hey, you know, if we believe we can win one game on a road, that home court doesn't matter. And so it was just little mind games like that, that so daily will play that would get them going. No one had to short adventure three finals in a row of the time. They had been to, you know, three or four Easter conference finals at the time in a row as well. So, you know, just finding different things to say you know what, yes, the process may get stagnant. You may not want to do things a certain way. You may think this you've already arrived but you know what? It'll be go about it this way. We go about it. That way you know we'll be back where we're supposed to be in June and then instead of watching another team celebrate on your floor again up here in Boston you know the defending will be falling for the right reasons yes that was a big issue for the fans but you know saying you know inherent here and Queen saw we are you know the champions so that's just where I stand on that but hopefully they respond too well to the you know, city heated as that's gonna that's gonna be coming. For sure. So no look No pun intended. Yeah, no, no pun intended and definitely, definitely gonna be there and in the grand scheme of things, so now going on to distributary in march right so before the all star break, so February, so you got Brooklyn you got Phoenix, you got Charlotte, Philly, Detroit, Detroit again before the all star brettly Day last year, they got out of Memphis as well before the all star break so that's also going to be interesting. I'm surprised it's on a Sunday night. I feel like that should be your Friday night game or Wednesday night game. That Memphis game here last last season. Man that could have been NBA finals game. Like it was electric like to he had that game. I was the I was right behind the basket one job where they tell you to draw and he threw it down and I mean, the crowd was 20,000 users 20,000 Oh, oh my god. Like there's still there's still there's students on rail and he's obviously one of the new faces of the league obviously just getting their new Max God he got in this offseason over that five year when $93 million deal so kudos to him but for guys to have much to say but I'm looking at the structure of February I think that's another stretch like it is like we talked about in October November. Although you got Phoenix Philly, and Memphis on there. You also got Detroit twice. I always like to do out the bus on and so on. So you've got the bucks in Detroit back to back before the break that you enter in Indiana. You got Philly and then you got the Knicks semi February is another month where they need to make some more statements obviously. Listen, I we talked about Brooklyn not breaking up. I don't think Brooklyn once you break up so good. You're gonna still have to see them and I want them to give I want them to bring us to give a negative statement game every time you face them. I be like you are okay. It was at Dartmouth Park I don't care was at Rucker Park. I don't keep it at the Barclays Center. It was on a linear gab Williamsburg, Flatbush whatever, we're coming to play and we're going to bust your ass every single time or with that as well. And we're gonna look at free Yeah, why should that be every single time so yes, I'm just thinking about February and and it's a march man. You got Cleveland Brooklyn, New York's on there a couple of times Indiana, Utah. So just going into to most of the variables are at home. So just, you know, what do you want to see for them? accedi Gardens is obviously TD Garden was really a house of horrors last year for the wrong reasons. So just what do you what do you see them becoming in or gaining? become exceedingly Bacchus week? What do you see them becoming? By the time we get to that all star break early March? You know, as we get ready for for the stretch, run to the postseason? Yeah, man,

Rob Kelly:

I think that's such a key part of the season. Because, you know, you looked at it this past year, it's like, that's where we took off, man. That's where That's where this team became who they were, was late in the season, and you have an opportunity to do kind of the same thing, where you're facing a lot of teams that you should be able to beat when you play. When you play your best games, you should be able to be in a lot of these teams home or road doesn't matter. And then the teams that you are kind of a toss up against. You mostly play them at home. I mean, you have the sons at home, you have the Grizzlies at home, you have the nest at home, you have this long road trip there but then you have like dispersed at home, like it's dispersed, dispersed anymore. But you know what I'm saying? You have you have the sons at home speakers at home. Right, so you got all these teams at home that you should be able to be in and the teams that you know, that are a toss up against. You have them at home and then the teams that you should be able to be you have on the road, and it doesn't it shouldn't matter that they're on the road. So that's such a huge stretch right there. And the other big thing too is like as I scrolled through here, there is another big road trip in the middle of March rams, the Hawks, the rockets, the Blazers, the jazz and the kings. Granted you should be able to go foreign one at the very least three into on that road trip. It all depends on obviously honestly, I turned into

Rayshawn Buchanan:

five No honestly. No, right.

Rob Kelly:

That's five minutes.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

I'm sorry. Like I should be Rolling what okay now let me let me say that by lead them and be respectful I'm sorry I forgot to the guy who we wanted and Dr. J Murray they're good they're going to be an issue down there and in Atlanta so let me let me let me say that back so 4141 Even though Portland to Utah can be really rowdy for as their home crowds go off and Minnesota is on there too but

Rob Kelly:

that being said there are no tables this time

Rayshawn Buchanan:

oh my god I listened crickets I still can't believe wonder that I can play music so quickly that happened but then Sue was like why he helps change your culture again for a year and you still like it's just like what do you like what what else is going on

Rob Kelly:

wires bro Park He parlayed that into a sport center a sports center see or first take seat for three three weeks he was on that fucking show.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

talker like he like he had a little pocket like it's unbelievable unbelievable I will look into this so I'm here for it I'm here for like that's the use obviously of Marcus ball he was going to invite everybody but he was he just a cargo him came off the shore he would definitely talk him at it oh, but yet I tend to put it out there but know that that roadster should be another software layout? Listen, I know we're gonna get into this soon but I'm looking forward to seeing at least beer 55 Win team at least at least and I want the ones to you I know that they want as a team they came into the fall season to seed and it was an improbable run and you know all if Middleton Middleton played and you know if this if this happened if that happened, as a lot of hypothetical job was throwing out there. That didn't happen in doesn't matter. yatta yatta must again. If Durant Durant was a size 15 That's gonna save him. FBLA let's shake dog well, because it's Boston. And yeah, I want to be irritable. Yeah, I want to be Yeah, so anti Boston shout can't even make bucket logical takes. It's like broke wrote like, just up. That's it gets me. It gets me annoyed every time. This is like the type hypothetical. This hypothetical is every single year as far as especially basketball.

Rob Kelly:

Pretty sure assaulted. Robert Williams and Brian Mark. Yeah.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

There's so much happened, bro. Listen, there's some there's so many hierarchy

Rob Kelly:

was out. Arjun was out. Like there's so many different things like Stop it saw Chris.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

Chris Paul was over three years ago. So yeah, just the way it goes. Right. Exactly. So it was just like, you know, just just pump the brakes. On once again, things happen once again. I would love for them to be healthy so we could face them again. And you know, we see what goes on there. You're lost. He comes back at the healthiest version of himself. But it is what it is. So yeah. So now we get to the final final month of the season. And it's only for Virgo season games there. So got to run those twice and and Holman home. Philly Dan, Dan Atlanta. So where do you think they're right by seasons. And

Rob Kelly:

I think that that final stretch run man could could turn out to be pretty huge when it comes to seating. I mean, you have Philly, and Milwaukee. In the last goddamn week or the season. Those games could be huge, man. I mean, you're talking two teams that easily could be competing for that one seed with you. So you have Philly, Milwaukee and two games against Toronto. Like, remember last year, how we didn't set our players coming down to the end and like we went into it firing into the playoffs. And that's really what brought us to that NBA Finals appearance was that that mindset, but I see the same things at the end of the stretch run, man, we're gonna go out against Milwaukee and the Sixers and, and we're gonna we're going to play everything we're gonna play in like the playoff games like leg day matter. And I love having these games at the end of the season for this team because we saw this year, man, they don't hide from no one. They're not going to set up and be like, Oh, we're going to set up our playoff, you know, appearances. So we play this. No, they don't give a fuck. They're gonna go out there and just win games, and they're gonna get their seed. You know what I mean? They're not they're not going to sit there and sit this guy at the end of the season where that's not happening with this team. Ama is not that guy, man. He's not. He will not I don't see him doing that being like, Well rest this guy, because we already had this scene. Listen, if it's locked up. That's a whole different story

Rayshawn Buchanan:

but different ways. Number one see or number two see like I totally I totally get it

Rob Kelly:

that's different but if you're if you're still in fluctuation I get there's no goddamn way email is ever gonna put in this team we're gonna lose this game on purpose that's never happening so I'm excited for this and no stretch because that thing is gonna I think he's gonna mean a lot to be honest.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

Yeah so actually what I want to focus on that Toronto the last who blessed with Toronto he believe in Nick nurse. I believe in Saudi bonds I believe in Pascal siakam I believe it's fair to

Rob Kelly:

say no, no no I mean you know i Yeah, exactly right.

Rayshawn Buchanan:

So you know sorry decay but that's what it is. But you know, those guys want me bonds was never a championship obviously but a majority those guys are still there. Were battle tested in Brown, the championship team that won it once again. That's what's just going back to the arguments about few minutes ago. Yeah, we know if he was healthy to run Listen, when guess what leads to it's like they won. They got hurt Steph was a lot this stuff didn't do enough against Skylar in the boys like they still they still they still got gotten Mahendra when it mattered most. But, you know, that's a whole nother story for another day. But yeah, I just think that you know that phenylacetic is Toronto, where, you know, they're probably going to be fighting for fifth and sixth year like they were this past year. And because like nurses sold physical or seals or socialism, so I think that that would be an excellent tune up for the playoffs. Maybe even the race series if we were to face them. They could be whatever round so yeah, I just think to me, I like to ask them a few minutes. You're like, I believe that this could be a 65 win or more season. I think that we're looking at and Tatum NVP light season. I don't know if the model is the MVP. That's too early to tell. I will have other shows where we can we can dive into that and give our prediction on that but just start early and predictions from this. I think that I could see them dollar 56 and 26 was to be good for first in the east in my opinion, baby second, listen to walkie I think you know maybe just hot or whatever and they expose to get to them. We'll see but I think that's gonna be good for a top sucede I think 10 Number browner than the average 25 or more. I think Brogden finds a way to win six months of the year. I do

Rob Kelly:

love you don't

Rayshawn Buchanan:

do your side. So I mean, you know, although it's been a conversation No, I'm saying like I know the beauty of listen to this like oh, like why you made this decision in August and so many things could be i Listen, I'm not one of these guys to do a show. To do it just to be right. I know a lot of a lot of y'all listen to this and be like man, oh, that prediction was crazy. Tell somebody already commenting and all other things other video saying oh, well this was a lady taking this this will cool. warranwood Thank you for listening to everything. It's easy to talk about in hindsight, we talk about what we feel in the moment and that's just what it is if it comes out something you write great if not, then it's forever on the internet and so we just go from there but like I said definitely fit the win season incoming. You know we're going to see at least some Tatum see late some brown we're going to see very high IQ plays and Brogden ESOMAR I think together at the same time the nest should be encouraging as a Celtics fan. And I said lovely Christina Gallo despite what I thought you know, when we didn't get out same bird but you know look love the addition of Gallo as a shooter for the teams when they are stressed the floor and yeah, I'm just excited to see how no fool so you know what, what are your predictions or early early prediction? That's gonna go

Rob Kelly:

I'm gonna get crazy. 62 and 20 for this team member. Okay, so

Rayshawn Buchanan:

like, like the whole night team. Okay, well, yeah.

Rob Kelly:

lesson this is this is this has got to be a special season because I don't see that. I know. We've seen it before. I don't see that downfall coming. And and I can almost guarantee. Actually, I'll put it as well, but I'll put it differently. It's a disappointment to me. If Jayson Tatum is not in the top three of the MVP conversation this year, because because from what we've seen, from from from from, from who he is his basketball player now, right, we saw what he did in that playoff run last year. We saw how he ranks historically, in his first four to five season Playoffs. We've seen all these things right. Jayson Tatum now is that upper echelon elite NBA talent and it's time for a the rest of the NBA dish to recognize that and be for Jayson Tatum to give them no goddamn choice but to recognize that and to me, that's what I think this season is gonna show because now we have so it was I love Marcus, right? I love all these guys that we had last year as role players, but we had no one else on this guy's end team. Who could create a shot by themselves, except for Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown? Mark is smart. 20% of the time can do it. Right. But other than that we had no one else who create their own shot. Now we have Gallinari who who's a step back, who wait didn't happen, who's catching shoot waiting to happen. And we have Malcolm Brogdon. Who is what what Derrick white wishes he was offensively. Let's put it that way. And that was my bad admin, take a shot at Derrick white, I love you, Derek White, I'm sorry. My bad. It's just in DNA that was just put, but I'm just saying like, like, the ceiling for this team is so high bam. And it's the highest it's been in a very long time. And if they if they don't come out and capitalize on this, and, and shut all those goddamn haters up and be that team that we expect them to be, it will be one of the most disappointing things I've seen from a Boston team and a lifetime because I have such high hopes from this basketball team, especially especially from Jayson Tatum, because of the way that ended last year, and the shadow IT leftover that Ron that he had, you know what I mean? It was so magical. It's so amazing. But he still had like this shadow just fuckable working over them. At the end of the season. They go you sucked in the finals? You didn't have it. You're not that guy. You're not really that guy you worked like you might, your it's time for all that shit to stop. And I think this is the year that I just, I really feel it. And if it doesn't, that's a whole different conversation that we can have on a whole different goddamn show.
