In response to aciemvp's comment:
it's all re-arranging deck chairs on the proverbial titanic (not that we are going down, we just can't go up as much as we need to) until danny gets a PG and a 5 masher. doesn't have to be a big scorer as we can see green and terry are capable second unit scorers sans rondo's iron first ballhoggery.
but we NEED a pg and a 5 masher who can get rebounds. until we get that, our chances against miami are extremely poor. even then we really have our work cut out for us and doc has to cut pierce's minutes big time and we have to be good enough to win with pierce at 22-26 mins per night the rest of the year so he has something LEFT for the playoffs. and kg has to be 28 a night. period.
if we can do that then i think we can be competitive
We beat Miami last time we played them.
i don't get why we need a point guard. a board masher absolutely. i like this four guard rotation we have now. Lee and Bradley have good chemistry together and give this team a defensive edge we didn't have before RR went down.
We could use a pure PG upgrade to Barbosa, but its not nearly as important as getting a PF-C who can rebound.
Acie is rarely ever right, but he's got a point this time, the C's are fun and scary but not title contenders if they are going to need 34-38 mins from KG at C in the playoffs and rely on Green (16-20), Wilcox (14-18) and Bass (28-32) at the 4-5 spots.
In the playoffs. Green should play 8-12 mins at the 4, allowing him to spell Pierce for 18-22 mins at SF. KG should be bumped up from 28 to 32 and Wilcox can play 8-12. This team is desperate for a better rebounding big who can give big mins each game. If Bass is not traded for this player he'd only have to provide 20-24 mins while Bass gives 16-20. but if we move Bass for this player, and bump up Green and Wilcox 4-8 mins a game, the guy would still have to give 28-34 mins.
