By now, his fans are the first to tell you veteran Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart is one of the biggest driving factors for the team’s success, and they have the numbers to point to that support their position.

For whatever reason, the Flower Mound native is a polarizing figure among some Celtics fans, but the fact is he leads the team in plus/minus and Boston has the seventh-best offense in the NBA in recent days no matter how infuriating his occasional ill-advised shot may be. Just how valuable to the team is Marcus Smart this season so far?

Co-host of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast Evan Valenti hosted guest Alexandra Francisco on the most recent episode to talk about the value of the former Oklahoma State player to this iteration of the team.

Watch the clip embedded above to get their takes, as well as the reasons they point to in order to support their views.
