Amid cries for him to go, Semi Ojeleye shows improvement in Celtics win over the Magic
Man...Celtics fans have really turned on Semi Ojeleye. A year ago at this time he was the 'Giannis Stopper". Now? Cut him to keep undrafted rookies because he stinks.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) October 9, 2019
I'm consistently reminded how much we love what is shiny and new.
I must admit to being euphoric about last night's game, but I never get too high or too low on anything. One game is too small a sample to project Semi into stardom, but I was happy to see what he did versus the Magic. Hopefully, it was not a fluke. Semi's defense and versatility are too valuable to quickly discard, and we are seeing a lot of Celtics fans pushing for one of the newer guys to replace him on the roster. Too early for that. If we see more rebounding and shooting production from him, he needs to stick in Boston.
