In response to BirdLewsBias' comment:
Since it appears Darko is gone, what's the best move...trade or FA to find a big?
I say go after Kenyon Martin. The intensity he brings will be a complement along with KG's intensity.
I would definitely want Gortat but if the price is too steep, wait for Josh Smith or someone else as the deadline gets closer.
Doc still has to play whomever is brought it. I gt tired of signing all these guys every year and then Doc reverts to playing 5-7 guys and then by the playoffs guys are dragging or beat up. DEVELOP A BENCH and VALUE YOUR BIG MEN!!
Celts fans complain both ways at the same time:
Doc doesn't play young guys! Wait, Why do Bradley, Davis, Rondo, Sully, Green, Delonte, Gomes, etc look so bad in their first year? Could it be he's developing young guys? Wait, they developed and we love them. No, wait - we hate them!
Doc must develop a bench. Doesn't matter how many injuries there were to the bench. Shaq, JON, Delonte, Kristc, Perk, Green all injured but Doc must play Murphy, Arroyo, and other castoffs and beat Miami, right?
Doc - this year, you're playin Rondo, Pierce, Sully, Bass, KG, Green, Lee, Terry, Barbosa, and Wilcox. dam it Doc, that's only 10 players......that's not developing the bench!
wait..we're losing. Why can't we win with all the new players playing all thes minutes?
This is how we sound....back and forth every game. Make up your mind. As he develops the bench, not everyone will get minutes - do the math. We will also lose a lot as they develop. We can't have it all ways when we have no young center nor rebounding power forward. Doc is trying to develop a team with what Danny gave him. Have some patience.
and by the way, when we get to the playoffs, we SHOULD shorten the rotation to 8 players for the bulk of the minutes!
