    Conley - 23 points and 9 assists.....really Rondo, really?

    [/QUOTE]

    Rondo is playing hurt. He's forcing himself to play and in the process is playing lousy. That's Doc's call. He should just sit Rondo in the meantime instead of trying to squeeze a good performance out of him.

    Playing hurt is BS. Playing hurt is hurting the team.

    Sit, get well, and let someone who is healthy play.

    My point exactly!

    I'll even go for this lineup. Let's remember Green is the reason why Harden could never start in OKC...he's a starter, starting will not make him nervous. If anything it will make him more assertive and confident. Watch when we trade him, he's going to blow up.

    The sad part is HE'S NOT EVEN THE 6th man on this team. C'mon man, what's going on??

    [/QUOTE]

    Not true.

    The reason why Harden didn't start for OKC was because OKC didn't want Durant playing PF.

    Is Green a scorer? That's the question you should be asking because the Celts traded for him to be a scorer and not just a role player.

    Jeff Green just doesn't have that scorer's mentality.

    [/QUOTE]

    Wrong again...keep thinking that it had anything to do with Durant. Green was more effective in OKC...go back and look at some of his stats.

    I'm on board with trading Rondo now, just for the record.

    [/QUOTE]


    Absolutely. He is an enigma. A large part of the problem as the team stands now. Let Lee and AB run the show. Perhaps package Rondo and Pierce. It would certainly shake things up and help this team move forward

    Conley will be watching Rondo play and start for the East All-Stars on All-Star weekend.

    Who really cares about who plays or starts for an all star game.

    There must be something wrong with your memory.

    Jeff Green played PF for the Thunder. 

    Harden played SG for the Thunder.

    You want proof?

    Why didn't Harden start for the Thunder even when Jeff Green already got traded?

    You said Harden couldn't start because of Jeff Green. But Harden also didn't start even when Jeff Green was not around anymore. 

    [/QUOTE]

    HUH? WTH are you talking about? Remember they didn't have Perk. The starting lineup was
    Westbrook, Durant, Green, Obaka and Krstic...Harden was still the 6th man.

    Harden was a sixth man in OKC. He is six four, he never competed with Jeff Green. Ainge targeted Harden when he  traded Perk and ended up with Green who he drafted.  Harden was the steal, Green as was said the enigma and still is.

    You guys are 6 1/2 games behind the perennial doormats, the GS Warriors, and you are "blessed" with two 7 footers. And as a GS fan too in addition to being a Celtic fan, thank you because all is well here in the Bay Area. SF Giants World series victories in 2 of past 3 years, Warriors beating Clippers by 21 last night & SF 49ers hopefully to meet the Pats in SB and as a fan of both teams, I can't lose.

    Yes, one of our biggest problems is losing rebound battles but it is not necessarily because we do not have a big effective center.

     

    Yup, I know it is a Celtic forum but as Laker trolls post, I, a Celtic fan since the Cousy/Sharman days, am a local fan too. Was at the GS/Clippers(best record in NBA) game last night and it was an electric crowd and game was not even close with GS winning by 21. Have suffered here for years with GS a doormat and the Lakers always beating them. I do not hate the Clippers as I do the Lakers who are now 6 1/2 games below GS.  Was happy to see LAC not extend the 17 game win streak & keep Boston's 19 in a row alive. Many, many posts say that we are one big man away from being an elite team and that may be true but this Clipper team has a Center, Jordan, who got 4 rebounds and scored only 4 pts. GS center, Ezili, also got a 4 rebound/4 pt game so a wash with the centers. Their allstar forward , Blake Griffin, only got 10 pts/6 rebs. But the GS team got 53 rebs to 38 which means their Forwards & Guards hustled/out fought etc. the Clippers. Lee, a F, got 24 pts and 13 rebs and Curry, G, got 31 pts and 6 rebs. Lee is better than any forward we have except KG. And Curry, including Rondo, is better than any of our guards. Their whole team is electric. I have not seen this energy on the Celtic team for years. Ok, here is a Celtic topic--- we all have had to love hall of famer, Don Nelson, who instilled in the warriors a run-and-gun type offense many times using 3 guards and forwards not more than 6 ft 8 as centers yet led the team to many winning seasons & playoffs. This current team is similar. I believe Doc would like to do the same but our players are not as athletic or skilled. So, I am not sure that we are one big man away from being elite as I feel our forwards, Bass, Green, Lee and Terry too are just average and just have not meshed together. We need some better energy in the Forward area and Rondo is not, and will never be in my opinion a scorer like Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook etc. Thus, we need some major changes including forwards and guards too perhaps.

    Re: Celtics are a bad team right now

    Hard to believe this was only a few days ago,  3 games ago.  A little over reacting?  Probably.  Do we still need help?  Yes.  Could we continue with what we got?  Yes.

    Kind of funny what one good player do to a team isn't it?

    Lets see now ,  we have beaten 3 of the top 4 teams in our conference.  2 of them on the road.   Not bad for a BAD team is it.
