    Re: Congratulations Doc Rivers

    Always hilarious to hear those whose basketball knowledge consists of coaching their 50-and-over rec league team critique a guy who has played and coached at the highest  level.

    U Cant put everything on coaches. Shame on anyone who actually though Doc would go deep into his bench come playoff time. Im surprised J.Craw even got in the game. This series will end early because KG is gonna play too much and wilcox and Pav wont sniff any minutes.

    Avery Bradley is looking overated right now. How many times did I hear fans say not to trade him. I hope we didnt turn down any good offers because right now he is being exposed as a t/o machine and his defense isnt looking like it did last year. If he aint playing lock down defense, he is basically a liability out there with his t/o's and lack of playmaking ability.

    This, to me was the biggest factor in the loss. Rondo wasnt missed so much during the reg. season but in postseason where posessions are limited, fouls are few and its more hlaf court Bball, Avery is NOT the answer. I would rather J.Craw run the show cuz he isnt scared to shoot and can pass the ball. Terry would also be better. Time to put Bradley back at the backup 2 guard spot. Let him guard J.Kidd and frustrate his old *ss

     



    Avery Bradley is being asked to do too much..........first he is not a point guard as is shown by his turnovers.........carrying that load and trying to give full court pressure is impossible at the NBA level (ie Pitino trying to run his full court college pressure for 82 games) Bradley will be fine when he goes back to the 2 with a good point guard......he then can concentrate on his on ball pressure and he is one of the best cutters in the league.....right now he is just being asked to do too much

     




     

    Agreed! May we see more of Lee tommorow as he seems to be a player who does better at home. I just think AB needs to play the 2 like u said or come off the bench. Crawford is better at running the team and that sais a lot. Green needs to come off the bench and let PP play the 3 and guard Melo. He has been the best defender on Melo. Take Bass off of him exclusively...

    I guess Doc thought (apologize for the oxymoron) AB was his PG.. The kid finally blossomed last season as a 2 and def specialist, then came off surgery this season...still wet behind his ears... so DOc makes him learn and play PG, prob the toughest spot to be in without experience.

    With the additional responsibilities and pressure hes getting handling the ball (hes not so hot at it)... is it any wonder his intense defense may be suffering too

    How people hold on to the notion Doc is an elite coach is beyond me..but then again, some also think fierce isnt an obnoxious lil nerd.
