Smart found his role last season, establishing himself as a top defensive force on the Celtics with routine shutdown defense. When Avery Bradley went down in the postseason, Smart made a near-seamless transition into the role of a defense-oriented guard.
Marcus Smart is a very gritty point guard. He's as hard as nails and he is a natural leader. He knows the entire playbook and expects the same from the entire team. He does not except loosing unless everyone gave it their all. He's a Boston Celtic through and through.
