    We need a big and make a run for the title.  You never know what can happen.  The team is playing sooooo much better.  As far as Rondo our near allstar is concerned we are not better off without him, if Doc would coach him and require him to move the ball and if Doc would run less isolation and more plays with multiple options.  I we had another defensive big that could play , we might just suprise.  It may be years before we are this good again and you can forget getting the type of players we need for the future with the old men, unless we were just lucky.

    Who said anything about Jordan or McGee?

     

    Right now even Drew Gooden would be an upgrade over Bass.




    David West will be a FA soon and Bird is gone ... He won't get traded but he could be available in a S&T this summer.

    So you think Sully's back will be fine now and he'll be the starter ... Hmmmm

    Yes, Sully will be fine and he'll be the starter at PF next season. Unless of course Ainge can trade for a big man better than Sully.

     

    We're already seeing how fun it is to watch young guys like Bradley, Lee, and Jeff Green play compared to watching Ray and JO. It's time to get younger and build for the future. David West is not the answer. 




    Hey, I agree ... I'm one that was clamoring for new blood but I don't like relying on the medical opinion of a Celtic Blogger and sometimes find comfort in knowing there's a veteran PF that can start or backup and be a compliment to KG.

    We're not sure if KG or Pierce decides to come back next season. There's talk that KG or Pierce might retire at the end of the season.

     

    And David West is all about the money. We argued over this before. You said West would want to have a chance to play with KG and the Celtics so that he could get a ring. Instead he went to Indy for more money. So again, David West is not the answer.

     




    Maybe not but he learned a valuable lesson ....

     

    and Pierce is talking retirement to scare teams away from making an offer that Danny can't refuse ... He's no Melo .... LOL

    I don't really care what happens to David West at this point ... I point it out to remind you that the gambler you profess to love so much has a second roll of the dice to get him ... Be careful what you wish for, or in this case, what Danny bets on ... Hahaha ... or should I say, GOOD LUCK!

    Doesn't matter. Whatever Ainge does I'm still going to be a Celtic fan. Sooner or later the Celts will win another championship. It's just a question of having the patience to wait for it.

     




    Now you're gonna be patient ... a minute ago your argument was to opt out of playoffs for a lottery pick .... you're contradicting yourself.

    Re: Ainge doesn't have to wait until the deadline

    Ainge isn't going to do anything I don't think. 

    Only exceptions would be: 

    - if he gets a great player offer he just can't refuse for the future (highly unlikely)

    - if he can find a big without giving up much

    As for this: 

    "We need a big and make a run for the title"

    Maybe - but, two things: 

    - we no longer have the assets to get a good big. There's no longer depth at the guard position to trade. 

    fortunately...

    - we may not need a big. I mean, can you tell me the team in the NBA postseason we should be worried about matching up with in the middle? The Lakers are not going to be a concern, OKC doesn't have a dominant big, Miami doesn't either. Brooke Lopez of the Nets might be the closest, and the Nets are hardly a sure thing. 

    So yeah, a really good big would be nice but we have no way to get one without giving up a key piece. I don't think Ainge will mess with this chemistry. 

    But I could see Ainge finding a way to deal for a so-so big that can give some fouls and block a couple shots.

    Even a Drew Gooden would be an upgrade over Bass.

    Celts can offer Bass and a 1st round pick. Remember the Celts 1st round pick this season is in the teens. It has significant value.

     

     



    If I were DA I would be calling Milicic every day, asking him if he is ready to come back and be a part of a playoff run! He is the best available option, and his salary is already on our books!

    Except Darko prob has very little if any respect for Docs... the real reason he left the Celtics imo.  So unlikely we see him again

    Re: Ainge doesn't have to wait until the deadline

    I have read a few articles that hint to the fact Darko may be available:

    Pau’s projected recovery depends on two paths. If he decides to get surgery, then he would be out for 10-12 weeks, which, even though increases the likelihood of a full recovery, means his return would be sometime during the playoffs. If he decides to use physical therapy for his recovery, then he is out for 6-8 weeks, which, if everything goes well, means a late-March return. Darko Milicic, released by the C’s, and Kenyon Martin, rumored to be courted by the Knicks, still linger in free agency, but both might require a bit more than mid-level or injury exception money. Darko is huge and could clog up the paint, and K-Mart brings ample energy. Martin’s rebounding and perimeter shooting could instantly fit into the high post void. The Lakers would seriously benefit from their size and experience. With Steve Blake back in the fold, then the packaging of those financial options with either Duhon or Morris could entice a swap for a body inside, or at least the room to sign one. It seems, however, the aspired direction of the team might not warrant their services. Plus, what team will willingly step up for the Lakers in their time of need?
