there was a time where tommy was less objective than he was now. i suppose you despise johnny most too. well i don't. i loved most and heinsohn was allright with me when he was a hopeless homer.
i really don't feel as if heinsohn has been one sided like that for many years. what i hear from him is a lot of silence when there are bad calls these days. and i have heard many times where he looks at a replay and recants an assertion that there was a foul, if the replay showed it.
you clearly have a lot of ill will that is long in the tooth with tommy. he has changed over the years. but you are bitter for some reason. maybe because you stink at basketball or all sports- i don't know and don't care. but what i do care about is your assertion that tommy is a moron is completely wrong.
even if he was still a hopeless homer, he still has intelligence and insight.
you suprised that he feels running is good? he is a RED AUERBACH SYSTEM GUY, you double moron!! red was about running. it was a system that worked and made the most dominant franchise in history. i suppose you hate red too? teams today could use a lot more SMART running and pushing the ball. scoring when a defense is partially set is much easier than against a dug in defense.
to me, the modern brand of ball is awful in a lot of ways. the one on one half court brand of ball that seems to be the nightly product of the nba is as tired to me as tommy is so tired to you. i'd like to see more running. what's more is the celts have the tools to do it.
green was blowing down the floor like no celtic i've ever seen in a long time last night. now if we could only get rondo to hustle up the floor a little bit then we get much needed easy points per game.
dummy, the celtics are older- they should run WHENEVER THEY CAN, which is what tommy is saying. there is NO STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE TO A SLOW DOWN GAME WITH OLD PLAYERS INVOLVED. run the shot clock out and ray runs his legs out making re-curls off of MORE picks than ever before! i don't know what is there that you can't understand. "old guys can't run" is probably your moniker.
and it's a dumb one. as dumb as flushing tommy down the toilet with the bathwater. this guy has had more insight on player talent in the game sweat out of one pore on his arm than you know of the whole game. much of the talent insight from tommy the celts have been remiss in not using in their talent management in the past 10 years.
he has waxed prophetically about rondo, his fundamentals, his defense, davis and how he should have been playing for most of a year and a half spent buried on doc's spite-for-young-players bench, and a LOAD of other things. all you hear is missed foul calls and no remorse at bad knee jerk reactions.
i think you're listening to tommy of 20 years ago and haven't opened your ears. even back then he still had insight into the game. i'm done talking about this. you're a disrespectful jack@sse to say what you have about tommy and that's that. a living legend of the game and you drip with hatred toward him. what's wrong with that picture?
