Colin Cowherd: “Win or lose, I think the Celtics have to make a move. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum doesn’t necessarily work because Brown has more ‘Alpha’, but Tatum is the better player. But if you brought Jordan Poole and Wiggins in from the Warriors, Tatum would clearly be the best player, he would have a wing defensive specialist, Wiggins would take some of the defensive pressure off, Poole isn’t nearly the defender Jaylen Brown is, but he’s got a lot of ‘Alpha.’ He’s clearly not as good as Tatum, and you wouldn’t have that issue of ‘is it a Tatum team or a Brown team?’ It would be a Tatum team with more defensive help, and some offense with Wiggins on the wing. The Warriors would be getting Jaylen Brown and Malcolm Brogdon off the bench, so you’d get great bench scoring potentially, and a much better defensive player next to Steph, so you wouldn’t have to rely on Gary Payton Jr. as much. Jaylen Brown is very smart, played at Cal, he’s the kind of player the Warriors love— highly functional, plays his butt off, absolutely commits on the defensive end, but he would know it’s Steph’s team. You gotta do something to Boston. Yeah, Jordan Poole can’t play defense but you already got Marcus Smart playing it, Wiggins would play it, Tatum would play it, and Robert Williams. You don’t need more defense, you need a couple more scorers. Philadelphia’s guys are ‘Alphas’— Harden, Maxey, Embiid, Tobias Harris; they’ve got more guys willing to take big shots. Even if Boston won I would try something new. All the Celtics are are variations of 'good.' They’re not ‘special’, even if they won the title this year, they’re not a great team.” (Full Segment Above)
