    If we trade Hump by the deadline then Oly must play more unless we get a center back. Hump was big tonight with inside play just as the lead was about to slip away he righted the ship. Craw and AB had nice games as well.

    Why trade at all?

    Start Humphries and try to win.

    yes Obviously the Celtics will continue to play 700 ball as long as Olynk never sets foot on the court.

    [QUOTE]Thank you Fierce.  That Hump's good hustle and vet experience leads to an occasional nice game is a bonus.  That some can twist a good game or two by Hump into remotely thinking Hump has the overall basketball ability of Oly is odd.  Listen to Tommy H, "Oly can be a great one".  Tommy is full of hyperbole, but he would never say that about Hump.

     

     

    I suppose Danny could hold onto Hump and use the cap space or resign him but we're top heavy with PF's as it is ... Maybe Danny trades Bass and Oly and holds onto Hump. Houston has a self imposed target date to trade Asik by 12/19 ... Bass and ? might get that done and then Danny could pair Hump with Asik in the frontcourt with Sully & Fav as backups.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    That's stupid!

     

    No way Ainge trades a 22-year old with a lot of potential and keeps a soon to be 29-year old.

    Seriously, the longer you post here the more ridiculous your ideas are becoming.

    True.

    The East is so bad that .700 ball is achievable.

    So. You are saying that you think the Celtics will play 700 ball the rest of the season. and if they don't play 700 ball it is because they play Olynyk.

    It almost seems cruel to spell this out.

    KO may become a good NBA player, but he is not now. Saw him play against Portland and he was intimidated by their size and athletism. Bass couldn't get it done because he's too small. Sully was good and Fav also looked lost against elite bigs like Aldridge. Fav is learning and showing some interest in playing tougher. KO I am not holding my breath for him to start using his size.

     A month in and people are writing off Kelly O.?  

     

     He's shown sign of good atributes at this level and signs of things he needs to aquire or get better at.  In two years with experience he'll be a solid player.  Also I'm not that impressed with Asik, I think are guys are just as good if not better.  Asik is overrated.

    [/QUOTE]

    Statistics seem to bear this out. How could the "steal of the draft" have fallen so far out of favor? What was Bob Ryan smoking that so clouded his judgment when he suggested that Kelly Olynyk could be an ALL STAR in a few years? Many other draft gurus were also in awe of the "steal" that got away.

    There seems to be no question that KO"s NBA reception was anything but smooth. He wasn't ready for the strength, speed and athleticism that frustrated his game. To compound his NBA transition he was forced to play the "5" position because he was 7' tall. Unfortunately, he lacked the strength, savy, and athleticism of his inside opponents. KO couldn't block-out, couldn't jump for rebounds and had his inside shots blocked because he failed to create space or protect his shot release. He needed to sell his inside shot fakes better too.

    Ko was so intimidated that it affected his shot accuracy and changed his game from an offensive threat to that of a facilitator for his teammates. To wit he didn't space the floor to create open looks for himself but rather to create passing lanes. He also decided to become a help defender to stop inside penetration and lost the offensive focus he showed in Summer league. His metamorphosis as a team leader disappeard.

    KO's recent time on the bench (sprained ankle) could have been instructive if only his coaches had identified "whats wrong" with Kelly Olynyk. He needs to become an offensive leader that looks first for his offensive contribution which includes taking more shots while still finding teammates with open looks. He overpasses and neglects his own offense. He needs to space the floor better as Humphries did against Denver and begin contributing a more complete game. When he returns to form speculation as trade bait should also disappear!

    I'm not writing him off...when all the Rondo Youth Brigade members were putting us in the NBA finals because KO played great against the NBA scrubadubs and wannabes during Summer league, I said he'd EVENTUALLY be a good player..a good, not great, player...a part of the puzzle...he's got slow feet, T-Rex arms , no ups and needs seasoning and to mature into his body...he needs to get stronger to get position down low...but he'll be OK...let him learn to play the NBA game.....

     

    Fav will never be more than a decent backup 5...but he doesn't mind mixing it up and can block a few shots....the rest of our frontcourt, minus the Humpster, are of midget length and will falter against REAL , Talented NBA frontcourts....the Hump is gone before the trade deadline...he's being shown right now, that's it...they are NOT getting into the playoffs...they won't tank, but they just don't have that much talent...once the REAL NBA shows up as the season goes on, once the trade deadline starts looming and pretenders to the throne want to improve their benches, some of our guys will be gone...injuries will happen...we'll fade as the season gets longer..watch

    Yeah. That didn't happen.

    Re: 5-2 without Olynyk

    Lets not get too down on Olynik as he is a rookie who has played in less than 20 games at this point.

    As a rookie he is very likely to have an inconsistent year in all facets of his game.  The key will be to see how much he can level off some of those peaks and valleys by the end of this season.

    He is likely to get much stronger by next season and will also become more confident.

    First, let him get healthy and back onto the court without even thinking of trading him.
