In response to Fierce34's comment:
I would also prefer Pau Gasol instead of Amare.
Regarding Sully, it's very clear Doc is showcasing Bass and Lee, so until the Celts are rid of Bass, Sully's not going to get more minutes. But I think once Bass is gone, Doc will give Sully more minutes.
Bass played all year with the C's last year. Lee has been around for a few years. The whole league knows what they can or can't do. You showcase new talent, unkown talent, not talent that the league has a scouting report on 5 pages long. You can call it showcasing if you want but thats not my definition of showcasing. Playing Sully extended minutes, bringing Melo up and playing minutes, now thats showcasing. Why Doc continues with Bass and Lee is unkown. They are probably hurting their trade value. I know Lee is. Lee was productive in other systems. Now occasionally you see glimpses of what he could do. Bass was effective last year. Sully has earned the minutes from Bass. We have a double double machine sitting on our bench if he played the minutes. Collins is a complete waste. A veteran that is probably a little better defensively than Sully. Of course we play without a center. I am ready to give up whatever is needed to get one here.
I want Cousins. Hope he matures and we have a good young nucleous around here. Cousins is also a better passer than most big men in the league. I have seen passes from him you don't see from a point guard.
If you trade Sully Melo, and Bradley for someone like Cousins, that is not a good trade. We get something but give up a lot so I don't think we improve right now, maybe longterm. The trick is not trading those type players and getting a impact player. Melo I could let be part of the trade because he is a couple years away. (I guess- who knows)
We got outrebounded last nite as usual. In the last 4 games in pretty much the same amount of time Sully has outrebounded Collins 24-4 Yes Celtics fans, that right 24-4 in the REBOUNDING DEPARTMENT. With a team with rebounding problems, the season slowly slipping away and we play this stiff named Collins.
That pretty much makes it 2 on 5 on the offensive end. Last nite it was Bradley who doesn't create for himself, Collins who cannot create for himself of do anything for that matter, Rondo who refuses to be a offensive force. That leave Pierce and Garnett trying to pick up the slack for the other 3. That in my opinion if bad coaching.
