JOY Taylor didn’t hold back with her latest controversial game against the Boston Celtics.
The speak co-moderatorThe 37-year-old gave her honest opinion as the panel debated whether the team should “blow it up” if it’s eliminated from the NBA playoffs.
Boston has home advantage as they go into the last game of their series with a 3-3 draw against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Stunning in a two tone blue and yellow outfit, Joy stated, “I don’t think they should [blow it up].

“We look around NBA and we have conversations and ask, “Who needs another piece?”
“If you break that, you’ll need another piece.”
Fans were quick to comment on the exchange, with one agreeing: “These are facts. The grass is not always greener on the other side.”
While another said: “Joy is very good… she knows about basketball.
But a third responded: “I missed the ball here. Brown has all the cards he can ask for, a mark and a swap, and keeps all his money.”
And a fourth said: “You need a real point guard with a real offense. 1v1 basketball can only get you so far.”
