    Biggest move that hurt the C's.

    I think the biggest mistake the C's made this season was not any trades, it was letting Tibbs go to the Bulls. Hats off to Tibbs dam good job he has done with the Bulls. Go win it all Tibbs i'm rooting for you.

    Well I live 150 miles from Oklahoma City, and 150 miles from Dallas.  I for one would rather seem either of them win it all.  Dallas because they got ripped in the finals by the refs against the Heat,  kind of like the Kings did against the Lakers.  Both games the refs were helping out the  Heat and Lakers.  Horrible officiating.

    Well, if Tibbs could hit a jump shot or keep from throwing a pass away, maybe you've have a point. If Tibbs could have kept Rondo's elbow from popping out or if he could make Shaq's leg heal faster....then maybe you'd have a point.  If he could have kept Delonte from hurting himself for almost the whole season or kept JON's knee and wrist from the problems they had, maybe you'd have a point.

    They didn't really have a choice.  Pro sports etiquette says that you can't keep an assistant coach from talking to another team about a head coaching position (unless you're ready to can your HC and elevate the assistant).

    Even if you're assistant manager at Burger King, they can't keep you from talking to KFC across the street about the manager's job.  :-)

    Nevermind etiquette, there are specific rules in place to allow coaches to move out of a contract to another team if it's a step up the ladder.

    He will be missed, maybe part of the reason the additions throughout the season couldn't acclimate fast enough? Perhaps. Oh well, I never get too mad at seeing a former Boston assistant doing good things elsewhere: Tibbs in CHI, Farrell in TOR, Mills in HOU, Pioli in KC and Dmitroff in ATL. Boston is turning into a coaching factory! Nevermind Crennel, Weis, Mangini and McDaniels...even if they did all fail.

    Yeah I kept screaming for Ainge to basically make him Doc's predecessor in waiting after last season. He was worth paying HC money too as an Asst Coach but I'm sure he wanted his own team.

    His defense is just suffocating. Hard to believe that Bulls defense is the kind of defense the C's used to play.

    I hope Thibs wins it.

    When I brought that up at the start of the season, ALL you C's fans mocked me and thought the great Celtics defense wouldn't skip a beat.

    How does that look now?

    That defense might have something to do with younger legs, too.

    The mistake was not letting Thibbs go but that Doc suggested he take the Bulls job over the Hornets gig even though it paid less money. Ouch!

    The biggest move that hurt the Cs was not drafting DeAndre Jordan and waiving Semih Erden.
    Posted by Kirk6



    Semih was really coming into his own this year. but like just about everybody else injuries slowed him down. didn't like seeing the Celtics get rid of him and Nate. danny tried to get too cute and it backfired.

    just needed a little something in the middle to stop the bleeding. and yes Perk was the short term answer but he was thinking long term.

    Losing Thibs did hurt but he really did deserve a head coaching job and what should DA have done? Fire Doc? That wasn't happening. Now Lawrence Frank is getting a second interview with Houston so who knows who will be our next #1 assistant next year.

    Doc`s predecessor was Obrien.

    I agree that it would be have been impossible for the Celtics to retain Thibodeau.  He is doing a great job as a head coach and his leaving couldn't have been  prevented.  He deserved the opportunity to become a head coach.  You make a good point about other former assistants leaving Boston.  They all deserve the opportunity to become head coaches.

    Yeah, that was consistently brought up...but it was Thibs intensity that brought out the best in that defense. Something they were sorely missing this year. How many 4th quarter leads did the C's give up while he was in Boston?! I'll bet it wasn't nearly as many as they gave up THIS year.
