In response to BirdLewsBias' comment:
R9R, please explain why guys leave the C's and get more minutes on other teams? Everyone knows Doc has a script of minutes. PP will still get the majority of the minutes and we won't sign a rugged PF to play next to KG. Green should've BEEN starting over PP. Ainge should've signed Kenyon Martin to go with KG.
Why did neither happen? I'll tell you wahy because Doc plays guys until the wheels fall off. This is why we've had so many injuries over the last 4-5 years. Injuries happen but Doc has never created good depth since we've won the title.
You have to really be kidding, right? Sully, Rondo, Green, Wilcox, Delonte West, Bradley's shoulder, Barbosa (who didn't play enough!!) .....and all these young guys got injured because Doc played them until the wheels fell off? So which is it - he doesn't play young guys or he plays them until they have heart problems, torn ACL's, and shoulder separations?
I have to ask because Garnett played less minutes (which many people complain he's paid too much for the minutes while you complain he plays too many minutes) and he wasn't injured at the end of the season. He plays old, but not injured. Pierce says he wasn't injured, either. He certainly played old.
Your post makes no sense, my friend. Blame Doc for some things. Blame Ainge for not getting a big man. But, you can't say Doc played players too many minutes.....especially when we JUST squeezed into the playoffs with 3 major injuries while trying to preserve KG's minutes.
What would you have done....played KG less than the 29 minutes a game he played so that we could lose? You'd take your top +/- guy off the court even more? Wow - glad you're not our coach.
