In response to BirdLewsBias' comment:
Uh for everyone writing us off they need to remember we've beaten NY and Miami WITHOUT Rondo.
Yes I know it's not the playoffs but if anything in the playoffs games slowdown to halfcourt games and this team is built more for halfcourt.
So I'm saying we have a chance. Now teams have to focus on 5 guys instead of 1 guy dominating the ball.
This could be a blessing in disguise.
Add me to the "don't blow it up nor give up" category. I remember all too well what its like to have a team that's the doormat of the League challenging the record for consecutive losses.
Instead of trying to go to the bottom of the League and get a lottery pick, I saw play with the team we have, let KG and Pierce retire when their time comes, and get a big name free agent in a future year. That plan has as much success (and is shorter) than getting a great draft choice and then waiting for that kid to develop. Heck Lebron was in Cleveland for 7 years without a title so how long did Cleveland stay at the bottom and then when they got LUCKY enough to get Lebron, they STILL did not get a title. Want to bet that New Orleans, with Davis and Rivers, will be a LONG time before challenging for a championship, if ever. Heck, they might lose Davis to Free Agency and then blowing it up was all for NOTHING!
Our team is not a bad team and we should hang in there. If we don't win a championship, at least maintain our ability to be a team that makes the playoffs and challenges. We are then attractive to the free agents who think they can come to Boston and help take a good team and get it over the hump to become a great team.
In the meantime, we get to watch a good team.....rather than a team that has 30 wins and 52 losses or some such record!
I'm proudly a Celtic fan forever who believes Doc and Danny will fight to be winners and not give up.
