    Oh, my!  BRADLEY?!? = Ginobili ?   That alone.... wow.

    Put it this way, Bradley, Green and Bass into the Spurs lineup would be like pouring beach sand into a Swiss watch.

    Rondo if he would try to score,could be close to Parker. Bayless could be our Patty Mills. Sully may already be better than Splitter. KO is not that far from being as good as Diaw. Hump is a very good role player, AB could fit in on a contender. Stevens I think is going to be a very good coach. Now all we have to do is find a Duncan, Ginobli and Leonard, we may find him with our 6th pick, and we'll be ready to contend.

    Man DaCeltics is HORRIBLE at these:

    - Rondo is a Parker who can't shoot as good

    - A healthy Bradley does for the SG position what Leonard can do for the SF position, just not as impactful on the overall game. 

    - A focused/motivated Jeff Green does for the SF position what a healthy Ginobli does for the SG position

    - Olynyk is our Diaw? Try Splitter, they are both close to 7' and Splitter has just been a 22 minute, 9 point, 6 rebound guy ages 27-29. Olynyk practically put up those #'s with better assist/3 point potential.

    - Sullinger is a Diaw who doesn't pass as well and rebounds better. Per 36 mins Sully is a 17p/10r/2a player. Per 36 minutes Diaw is a 13p/6r/4a guy. 

    - Bass is Bonner I guess, but better, and Pressey is Patty Mills and Bayless is Belinelli.

    So the Celtics are left with turning Faverani and Gerald Wallace into Tim Duncan and Danny Green... if they want to emulate the Spurs next season.

    So unless we trade for LaMarcus Aldridge or Kevin Lovin and also wind up with Gordon Hayward or Kevin Martin, there is ZERO chance of us putting together a team like the Spurs next year.

    Rondo would also have to greatly improve his shooting. Green's inconsistency equals out Manu's age and injuries. Green and Bradley truly are or can be as good a duo as Ginobli and Leonard. We've been waiting for Rondo to improve his shooting for 5 years now, if he were just a 46/36/77 he could be Tony Parker.

    And DA is our R.C Buford ? The Celtic FO for the last several years has turned our beloved Celtics into a backwater franchise that is irrelevant. Until valued free agents see Boston as an attractive destination, the Celts will continue to be irrelevant and posters on this board will be debating about 2nd round draft choices.

    Wait - who, again, among Bonner, Bellinelli, Diaw, Baynes, Mills, Joseph, Splitter, Green were "valued free agents" who wouldn't/didn't want to come to Boston? 

    And who have you heard was ever pursuing them?

    They were valued by the Spurs because they had a defined purpose in mind for their team philosophy. They look around and then dial up an actual player type, a personality, character, skill set, and plug them into the team concept they have already envisioned.

    In most all other cases teams race to sign the "best" free-agents that are available and then try and figure out how to piece a team together.

    In truth, these guys, to most other teams, have been garden variety players.

    YESSSS!!!!!

    Two comparison's that actually make sense.

    Wade went for 16-4-4 his rookie, age 22, season shooting 30% from behind the line. Smart has a year to find himself and his position and practice 3's. If that position is SG, then those Wade #'s could easily be Smart's age 22 #'s in 2015-16. Wade was of course a 24-27 point all-star his 2nd-5th years in the league, but never shot above 30% on 3's in any of those seasons, even shooting under 20% the year they won a title in '06! Wade has shot above 30% FOUR times in his 11 seasons and never over 32%!

    If Smart is a slightly worse Wade then keep him at SG for sure. Dennis Johnson was a 17p-4r-3a shooting guard first half of his career and couldn't shoot 3's. Wade a career 24p-5r-6a guy. Smart could fall in between.

    If PG really is his future switch him there like DJ when he came to Boston. Let him put up some Fat Lever seasons of 19 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists and two steals and pair him with a great spot up shooter. Could that be Young? Hopefully.

    I have said Young is like a Ron Mercer who (knock on wood) stays healthy and shoots 40% from behind the arc instead of 30%. Danny Green has Young's body and hits an awesome 42% of his 3's, so that is ideal. He's only averaged 9-10ppg in the 24-27 minutes he was given these last 3 years in SA so hopefully Young would up that in his prime to more like 15-17ppg in 30-32 minutes.

    Re: 2014 Spurs vs 2014 Celtics

    So now the Celtics have Leonard like defensive impact players in the backcourt in Smart and Bradley. Rondo would be a less cerebral poorer shooting Tony Parker and Pressey a guy who can have a Patty Mills impact soon if he puts in the time and really develops.

    The C's have their Manu at SF instead of SG in Green. based on both being able to affect the game at both ends of the floor but only occasionally as Green is inconsistent and Manu old and often hurt. 

    Olynyk is almost as productive on offense now as Splitter is at nearly age 30, and should be better as soon as this year, but Kelly doesn't have Tiago's defense. Combine Olynyk and Fav and you get a better Splitter. 

    Sully and Bass are younger/better overall than Diaw and Bonner, but neither has the passing of Diaw or shooting of Bonner. Olynyk can pass a bit like Diaw for a big though. As a trio Oly/Sully/Bass are just as good as Splitter/Diaw/Bonner, they just haven't played together as long and been coached up as well.  

    So the Celtics are basically still TIM DUNCAN, one of Smart/Bradley blowing up like Leonard, Rondo improving his shot/attitude, an upgrade from Fav to a center as good as Splitter to allow Oly to be Diaw, moving Bass for 1-2 shooters like Belinelli/Bonner and waiting out 1-2 years of James Young development into a better Danny Green from being anything like the Spurs.

    My point Rame is we are not as far away as some think. Glad you see it too. I hope Ownership and Danny does as well. Stevens has no choice, ha ha!
