Is the move for veteran Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart to the point guard position a success, a failure, or something in-between? Could one even make the argument that it has not even happened most night due to bringing on veteran reserve guard Dennis Schroder into the starting lineup many nights when COVID-19 and other causes of injury have forced unintended needs on the team’s roster?

At least one well-known Celtics analyst is not buying what he sees on the court with regards to Smart in the role of the team’s primary floor general — CLNS Media’s Jeff Goodman believes that you “can’t just give him the keys and say ‘You’re our point guard’. We’ve seen that this year that doesn’t work … You’ve got Marcus Smart as your point guard with two NBA All-Stars and you can’t get out of the play-in game.”

Is the analyst correct in his assessment, or is this an unfair characterization?

Even if it is unfair, is Smart the point guard Boston needs to take things to another level, or is he a familiar face holding the team back from what it could accomplish with a better floor general?

Watch the clip embedded above to hear what Goodman has to say to his co-hosts on the eponymous pod hosted by himself, Bob Ryan, and Gary Tanguay.
