In response to Petey62's comment:
Fierce, do you read other people's posts?
When I read your posts (and anyone else's), I respond accordingly TO THE POINT IN YOUR POST. However, you seem to totally disregard another poster's point and dismiss it without the courtesy of even replying to what it is they're posting.
I'm serious, it's like you aren't even reading what I'm writing and you respond with something having NOTHING to do with my post. Are you so adamant that your position is so right that you don't even address what I'm posting?
Do you even consider the merits of other posters if their opinion differs from yours?
Now to respond to your post, the reason why you DON'T keep AB is because he's not worth the Celtics paying him $7-7.5 million per year. In the next two drafts (incl draft night trade possibility), there is high probability that the Celtics will draft the pieces that will make up the next Celtics playoff team. In the next two seasons, AB will become "Bayless today with defense". Bayless is just 2 years older than AB. AB is slowing falling into the category of "AB is what he is" and investing $28 million over 4 years is not practical for our rebuild.
Now do me a favor, consider what I've posted. Read it and comment eloquently like I know you're capable.
Next season the Celts will still be a lottery team.
The reason why I see no need to re-sign Bayless is he's not needed.
Next season is still about player development.
You yourself said Bayless is already a finished product.
So he doesn't fit in if the goal is to develop players and not win as many games as you can.
Besides money, Bayless would also eat up playing time.
I say give the playing time to someone else younger.
But if the Celts are a playoff team, I agree with you that having Bayless for cheap is a good idea.
This is Fierce's goal. This isn't the Celtics goal. The Celtics DO want to develop players but they do not want to lose as many games as possible. If that were the case, Bass, Humphries and probably Jeff Green would have been gone at the trade deadline. If that were the case, Bass and Humphries would not be our starting bigs, thus eating Sully and KO's time.
You don't speak for Celtics management. That's funny, like Fiercy the BDC poster (or imposter) knows the goals of the organization. You're funny.
Where do you get your reasoning?
