Boston has one freshman coach, Ime Udoka. From what I’ve heard the players and fans love him. What is he doing differently that helped them get to this point?
His attitude is crazy. For him to be a beginner you would never know. The way he delivers, that only rubs off on young people. He’s also played ball, he has those experiences and knows what those emotions are in real time on the pitch. He got them all to buy in. You saw us from last season to this season? We’re two completely different teams because we bought into being a defensive team. Call Ime.
Does Marcus Smart embody this mindset?
I love him man – watching him hoops, the way he moves, the kind of player he is. He got a maximum extension and then became Defensive Player of the Year. People have spoken a lot about his deal but he has delivered and just does what he does. He rushes for this town, really, really.
Boston has two star strikers who are often compared – and discussed in trade rumours. If you had to choose, would you be a Jaylen Brown guy or a Jayson Tatum guy?
We don’t do that, brother. nope These are both my boys. i like them both Feel me? I scream the same way when they score and I’m just as mad when they make a turnover.
I get that. But if I’m being honest, as a Golden State fan, my favorite Splash brother is Klay Thompson. Not just on the pitch, but how he lives his life.
Yeah, Klay’s a fun guy, man. i love clay Didn’t he just post something about swimming in the water at the Golden Gate? You can’t hate that [laughs].
Yes, he said it brings him “closer to God.” Who is the Celtics equivalent for you as a fan?
For me, Grant Williams is my type at the moment.
He is Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association.
Bro, his mom is at NASA and his dad [was a jazz musician]. His IQ is insane. Also, being under Al Horford helps. It all has to make sense.
Have you ever been in contact with him or other Celtics players?
I’ve met them a few times walking around in TD after games. Marcus – I’ve done it with him before. He’s a great gentleman.
Who is your absolute favorite Celtic? There are so many to choose from.
botch [Paul Pierce]. That was the guy for me. Paul Pierce was our man. This is the second Celtics jersey I’ve ever had. If he and [Antoine] Walker made it to the Eastern Conference Finals, I thought we did it. I cried when we really lost that game.
How do you feel about Draymond Green and the way he played against the Celtics in that final? Do you see him as a controversial player?
I never had a problem with him until we started playing him. swear to god Now I notice all the antics. But I’m sure if I asked any Warriors fan about Marcus Smart, they would think the same way. They are equal, reserved. That is their job. That’s how I determine it. I can’t get excited about it. if [Draymond] annoys us, he’s just doing his job. And he’s great at it.
