Can Charles Barkley and Shaq please do something to motivate Brad Stevens a little?

Let me start out by saying that I am a huge Brad Stevens fan. What he did at Butler was ridiculous. And he took us to game 7 of an Eastern Conference Finals just 2 years ago. I don't forget that.
But right now, I'm not thinking about those successes. I'm thinking about 2 straight losses. And I'm thinking about that damned huddle.
Brad. Seriously? Dude. I'm not sure if Shaq and Barkley saw that huddle. But if they did, I would love to hear their reaction. It's embarrassing, Brad. This is the NBA. Show me some emotion. Just a bit. Just the tip. Just to see if they like it. What you are doing in this huddle does not work. How do I know?
Because we lost. Scoreboard.
Yes I know it was just a regular season game. But I'm struggling to understand what group of players you think you are talking to here. This is not a group of students from MIT getting ready to take a math test. This is Boston Celtics basketball. I demand more from you. Give me more. Take it to the next level.
And beat the Mavs tonight.
The Boston Celtics are going to win the 2019-2020 NBA title.
