#1: Marcus Smart Makes 2016 NBA All-Star Team

After an impressive end to last season, and an even more impressive Summer League, Marcus Smart has Celtics fans thinking the sophomore’s ready to take the league by storm. Smart’s improved his game and his confidence is soaring now that he’s established himself as a leader for this young Boston Celtics team.

Considering he averaged 24.0 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 7.5 apg, 2.5 spg, and 1.0 bpg  in the Summer League, do you think that’ll foreshadow the numbers he’ll put up next season? Yes, the competition in the NBA is a lot tougher than in Summer League, but Marcus was far-and-away the best player when he was on the court.

He showed off his improved jumper, in addition to his increasingly aggressive style of play this summer before injuring his hand. We also heard alot about his great leadership skills and it sounds like Smart’s ready to become the face of this franchise. So for the first Bold Prediction during the 2015-2016 Boston Celtics season, I believe Marcus will cement himself as a top Guard in the NBA and make the first of many All-Star teams in his career.

Marcus Smart 2015-2016 Projected Stats:

18.2 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 6.6 apg, 1.8 spg, 0.8 bpg, 0.46 fg%, 0.36 3p%
