Celtics PRIDE podcast: Romeo Langford, the win streak, and Evan Fournier vs. Gordon Hayward

Everything is looking up in Boston these days.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Denver Nuggets Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

On this episode of Celtics PRIDE, Adam, Josh, and Mike interview CelticsBlogger Jeremy Stevens. They discuss how the Celtics are finally playing well (7-3 in their last 10 games since the trade deadline, 3-game win streak) after so much malaise on the court, frustration from the coaching staff, and full on fan depression.

They share thoughts on Romeo Langford’s contributions, his ceiling, and his new-found ability to finally grow facial hair - and for context they remind fans that Romeo is younger than Aaron Nesmith AND has played fewer games than Payton Pritchard.

Jeremy remarks that he thinks Romeo is better than Jaylen Brown defensively, and this sparks a debate about who are the top-5 defenders on the Celtics. Listen to find out where Tatum and Brown rank.

Jeremy also gets introduced to Celtics PRIDE’s game of “NBA Would You Rather,” with questions like “Gordon Hayward at $30 million or Evan Fournier at $20-22 million per year?”

The Pride crew also question whether Jeremy Stevens is a distant cousin of head coach Brad Stevens.

They will talk nerdy to you, dissect the players on and off the court, and bicker like only opinionated New Englanders can. It’s like if CelticsBlog made a BasketballJones / Dunc’dOn lovechild.

You will get the coach’s perspective, the capologist’s view, and a healthy dose of advanced and traditional stats that breakdown everything that happened and could happen with the #1 dynasty in the NBA. If you often find yourself reminiscing about the players you grew up watching, or you just need reminders about what “being a Celtic” means to you, this is the podcast for you. This is Celtics PRIDE!
