    Could have played Darko ,left because Doc never played him,even though most agree he played well in pre season. Could have traded for Gortat , Delinbeer or Mozlov but I can't see Ainge looking at any international guys. Portland had a couple of nice 7 footers Myers and Freeman who would have been good rebounders in Boston,but they are not athletic enough for Doc or Danny.

    Yeah...but that's after the fact. The magic word is "IF" - but these players you suggested cost so much & the C's can't afford it with the exception of Darko who is disgusted and went home.




    Boston could afford most of the guys above or trade for them using Bass, Terry or Rondo's contract. Doc and Danny just like to play small ball and draft and trade for athletes ,forget the 7 footers.

    Steamer left the Celtics to go elsewhere Run......

    Watching Jim Boeheim on ESPN the other evening, it was interesting that he made the statement that the kids come out early and don't learn the fundamentals....they don't learn how to play good basketball....hence, in his opinion, both the NCAA and the NBA are paying the price by putting an inferior product on the court nowadays....does anyone remember why Alcinder learned the sky hook back in the day....? ...for those who are too young to remember, the NCAA eliminated the dunk shot to improve it's game back in the late '60's....these kids today rely on their athletic ability not their basketball smarts & talents (see Gerald Green and Marcus Banks as two examples)




    Duke the NBA is game is in decline, poor shooting,slower games. Most teams milk the shot clock and shoot with 5 seconds left.

    I have coached High School,AAU and small college and can tell you the kids are stronger but lack skills we all had. The NBA and College game has changed to defense over offense and the game is very physical.

    Take care Run

    PS The game needs to be cleaned up, no more steroids or HGH allowed.

    And you think J J Reddick will make the Celtics the rebound leaders on the way to a championship? Hahahahahahahahaha! Let me guess. Redick is NOT a thug to you right? I wonder why that is. 

     




     

    Steve

    Why did Ainge not go after Redick or any big?  Why does Ainge always sign players he calls athletes with questionable past history of being trouble makers??

    Run

     



    Jordon Crawford is younger and a better scorer. Redick can't play d.

     

     




     

    Bosox  Redick has become a very good defender , Crawford is a poor defender by most NBA coaches and writers. So why would Danny not want Redick ?

    Run


    If Redick is a good defender then AB is the new Russel. Crawford's problem with d is not ability, it is effort which is correctable.

    Boston is below 500 when playing against 500 or better teams. Thirteen of Boston wins have come against the bottom 10 teams in the league. Boston is also a terrible road team 7-19.

    Worst rebounding team as well ,this team will not make the playoffs.

     

    Run

    Yo Run, break it down since RR went down. This is a new team and season since then. You are comparing apples to oranges. Who they play is not thier fault. They have beaten the leagues very best also. Sports are about momentum and trends. THIS TEAM WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS....no matter how you try to break it down. WATCH. 9-3 since the "EVENT". They are the last team to beat MIA, the Champions, 10-0 since, right?

     

     




     

    Boston would not make the playoffs in the Western Conference and will probably be the last seed 8th spot in the East,but only because Philly lost there center for the year.

    Run

     


    Thanks, Run, It sure didn't take much to change your mind. Thanks for admitting they will go to the playoffs. Have another on me....... Damn, that was easy!

    Oldschool,

    The only "questionable past" the Celtics players are guilty of is their skin color, which isn't to your liking. I mean who can forget the time you falsely accused of Green of using cocaine because of his heart condition.

    Im glad you mentioned about Reddick. I mean, you did say they are the worst rebounding team in the league right? Is Reddick going to play center? AInge might still get that big man, but you'll more than likely call him a thug.

    Are you serious dude? Won't make the playoffs? Have you seen the standings, their remaining schedule , or what they've done since Rondo went down?
