We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Charlotte.
“There are three things in terms of the offensive side of the ball,” Dunlap said. “He plays up top, and they use the pick and roll up there nice. And then when he’s not going up top, then he’ll post you. And then the third part of his game are easy baskets, free throws. He’s inevitably going to get to the free throw line. He’s much like Melo (Carmelo Anthony). He’s diverse in how he does things, and he can get some cheap ones off the offensive boards.”
Then the coach got to the heart of the matter — the stuff that isn’t on the stat sheet but most certainly finds its way into the final score.
“The other thing,” said Dunlap, “is that obviously he’s going to be a Hall of Famer, and two is he just settles the entire team down. He has a very calm disposition, and he doesn’t get too high or too low. That’s been his career.
