    In Response to Re: Forget the '04 Pistons, C's have a superstar named Rondo and will compare more to the 80's Lakers : Kareem was averging 5 rebounds a game from 84-88, he is the guy I compared to KG as he turned 37 during the '84 season like KG will this May. The Pistons are a good comparison as well, guys like Avery/Terry are like the microwave and Dumars Pierce is like an Adrian Dantley/Mark Aguirre. I just don't see the frontcourt of Laimbeer and Rodman comparing to KG/Green the same way Kareem and Worthy do.

    It is the style of play, and this is where it all falls apart. Magic Johnson was just a different kind of player than Rondo, and the Lakers played a very typical West coast style of basketball, up and down the court. When Magic would enter the all-star game, the whole game changed, in a very dramatic way, it is just not what Rajon Rondo is, even as good as he is. 

    The Celtics are a very typical East coast team. They will be amongst the best on the defensive side of the ball, and toward the bottom on offense, per the whole time Doc has been the coach. This team is not going to be anything like the "showtime" Lakers, not unless they bring a new coach with a different philosophy. You can make all the position by position analysis you would like, but the style of play could not be more opposite. You can take any two teams in the league and try to draw player to player comparisons, and even find some, but when the sum of the parts is polar opposite, the comparison fails.

    You can look at the stats of Rondo and compare them to Magic, and the stats of Kareem and compare them to Garnett, and try to make Bradley into Cooper, and Green into worthy, and on and on. Doesn't hold up, the stats do not tell the story at all. Kareem and Garnett are nothing alike, nor Magic and Rondo, and Bradley is nothing like Cooper. There is nothing on this Celtics team that even remotely is like James Worthy. The Celtics will not and can not transform into a run and gun team with the current coach and personnel. Don't need to see them play one minute this season to say this,  common sense says it is a farcical theory.

    This will never be transformed into "showtime" Lakers. This, last years team is the same starting unit as next years squad, except Courtney Lee is replacing Ray Allen:

    In Response to Re: Forget the '04 Pistons, C's have a superstar named Rondo and will compare more to the 80's Lakers : No venon in my posts what so ever. I am just making it clear, I, am speaking direcly at you, and telling you straight up that I could care less what kind of petty little nonsense you want to get all hung up on. You want to be a jerk, you want to police grammer and spelling like a chump, have at it, I just don't care. I could almost make myself feel sorry for you, but you act like an aaahole, so scrap that. Someday, I am hoping you might come forward and actually say something. But in the meantime, carry on, be empty headed, and keep posting meaningless garbage posts. Posted by shonasty

    What a surprise, another worthless addition to to massive collection of meaningless junk you pile on to this board. Someday, you might actually have something to say, or maybe not. Some people suffer from arrested development, never get past age 12 intellectually. I actually like talking basketball with the rival fans, it is superior to having a bunch of people sit around and agree about everything. Too bad you have no interest, or are incapable of actually talking about basketball. So, you called Mike Brown a clown, how tragic, hope it makes you feel better to get that out for the umpteenth time.

    Let's see if we can find one of your many great "intellectual" contributions to this board. Oh great, here is a little gem: "The Lakers will be a better defensive team, with Nash and Howard, then they were with Fisher and Sessions, who couldn't guard anyone" Nash (39 year old player with bad back) is going to make the Lakers a better defensive team! As stated in an earlier post, I feel like a cat playing with an injured mouse! Just crawl away!

    It is because of efforts like yours, I am going to stay around here forever. The exact opposite of what you are aiming for will happen, because a dipstick like you deserves it. So, by all means keep encouraging me, I am stubborn like that.

    Trust me, after the Lakers slow start, you will go running for cover! PG who is 39 years old with a bad back SG with a bone on bone condition in his right knee SF who is one incident a way from a season long suspension PF who is as soft as the toilet paper in J. Nicholson's Bathroom C who will not be 100% (according to Dr. Klapper) until April or May Factor the above in with a coach that wants to install a Princeton style offense with less than adequate personnel, and you have all the ingredients for a comedy of epic proportions!

    All I know, is that Rondo can be spectacular..and the best player on the floor..even when Koby or Lebrons are playing on the opposite team. He has evolved his game to another level every year and has the best supporting cast to date. That is good enough for me. Of course the trolls will disagree. Did you expect anything different. This team has all the ingredients of a very good if not great team. Rondo is the difference.

    In response to rameakap's comment:

    Rondo isn't a top 3 PG of all-time like Magic, but he is a superstar top 3 in the game right now, and actually shot 3's at the same rate and poor % as Magic.

    While Rondo isn't quite as dominant as Johnson, we have seen a handful of games each year and his stepping it up in the playoffs to show he can be.

    Considering the C's have BOTH Terry and Lee in the Byron Scott role and BOTH Pierce and Sully in the Mychal Thompson role, I think the comparison remains solid. I'd take KG in his late 30's over Kareem.




    ROTFLMAO!!!

    Rondo is not better than James, Durant, Howard, Kobe, Dirk, Chris Paul, Bynum, Deron Williams, Derrick Rose, and this list goes on.  Top 3 superstar in the league right now... Whatever you are smoking must be really good. LMAO!!! 

    Have a very blessed day!




     

    TOP THREE POINT GUARD - that's what he said, oh sad and pathetic one!!!
