    In response to rameakap's comment:

    This Celtics team has won 23-24 games and lost 13-14 by 5 points or less.

    Anyone who thought in November it was impossible for them to win 30 games was a fool.

    Duh

    There is a mandate to TANK and play hard until the last few minutes and blow games.

    All Ainge had to do was make 1-2 moves that were readily available for him (Asik could've been ours no problem) and this was a 40 win team.

    You don't get this?

    Yeesh... pretty dumb.




    Come on Rame. You schooled Fierc(y) in quite some aspects, congratulations. You really have some knowledge about the games and its rules.

    But in this topic, you were clearly wrong. This team was bad from the begin with. Flawed in so many aspects (size, shoting) and went through a big overhaul (lost their best scorer, closer, vocal leader, defender, coach and was without their PG for long periods, ...).

    Many have foreseen it, you haven't, no big deal. But to call other members here a fool or dumb, cause the knew from the begin with that we stink is pretty poor sportmanship.

    The fungus seems to be investing quarters in this thread... and getting back barely nickles.

    "Quite an awesome return" fungus thinks to himself as our idiot savant does the math on his fingers and toes!

    "One of his more lucrative investments of recent" I  say to myself.

    Pud

    In response to rameakap's comment:

    Thanks for acknowledging how badly I school Fiercy around here. 

    Sorry if calling people 'foolish' for thinking we have 'no chance' at 30 wins sounds like poor sportsmanship. It was just meant as common sense.

    ...

    All Houston had to do was take Bass/Lee and the Clippers '15 pick and this team would probably have Toronto's 42-31 record right now (barring injuries).



    You are welcome, nice win. But no, it was not common sense.

    Actually it would have been more realistic, that we downgrade the rooster more than we did instead of imrpoving it. But obviously there were no takers. Also many players and IMO also the coach exceeded expectation (Crawford, Lee, Bass, Sully - fast return from injury - and now Oly) so your calculation that we are "close" to 30 wins and only bad luck is the reason for the missing wins is weak. Also consider that we play in a historically bad conference. In a normal year we would have much less wins.

    Finally: Even the Asik trade would not neccesarily made us better this year, as:

    1) Bass having a good year

    2) Asik was injured most of the year

    3) Asik is a horrible offensive player

    It is unlikely to improssible that Asik would have given us +20 Wins this year.
