In response to Gasthoerer's comment:
Well, I guess Terry is gettig younger. Everyone knew that Terry will become back close to his normal stats and everyone knew that Ray will not shoot 60 % for the year. Last year Allen was better than Terry (and Lee) despite his injury
Just watching the Miami - LA game, Ray gives Kobe a nice fight on the denfensive end. And made a bucket at the rim against him. Can you imagine Terry doing this? With his size? Even in the last games, Terry was brutal on the defensive end and that is not a compliment.
We lost only Ray, got Terry and Lee (and Green back from injury) and still looking for a shooter in Reddick cause we are horrible from 3 land over the year, ughh.
On top of this, we could use Terry's MLE for another player quite well.
Well, yes, we are much better with Terry...
I didn't say we were better with Terry. I said losing Ray has not made a difference for the Celtics.
Don't you remember those early season posts? People were going nuts and were saying things like Ray Allen was the difference between the Celtics and the Heat.
My post had nothing to do with who was "better". My point is that Ray Allen is now nothing more than an average player in the NBA.
Check out the Celtics blog I posted on another thread about Melo being brought back up for the Nugget game. He has been up and down so many times he must feel like a yo-yo. Maybe he is being dealt.
