[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Free Agent Centers : I am pretty good at that. That's how I found out he was 125th in the NBA in rebound rate. So now you are saying Davis is good because Doc said so? After you wrote volumes about how Doc destroyed his confidence? Color me confused. By the way this post had nothing to do with Davis. Even if Davis is resigned they would obviously still need more bigs as the only center on the roster is JON. Could you just give your obsession a rest for a minute and stop prattling on and on about Davis?

it's really simple- the post was all about free agent centers and it didn't even mention the guy who was on our team the last 3 years who played some of the best bump and grind D on big guys in the league WAY taller than him. allow me to point out the lack of respect for davis' ability to do this.
of course we need more bigs. but davis should be considered in the conversation of bigs, but he gets no respect.
i don't know what your putting words in the blender for. doc did say that davis finishing at the 5 was our best unit. and he was. and then he got hurt, that changed his performance level.
inflamed patellar tendon is not a hangnail type inconsequential injury. typical to celtics, we never got the story over how the injury started. it sure would help to know, right?
so davis' performance suffered after he missed those 10 games and i don't think he ever really recovered his mobility, which was the cornerstone to his game.
so what did doc do? criticized davis for trying to play the SAME GAME that he was before the injury which included taking a lot of shots (and making them) down the stretch and preserving wins for us. when the shots stopped falling, doc started talkin'.
it's fairly undeniable that doc has not liked daivs from day 1. so there was no professionalism there, doc sold him out to the papers again. did davis snap, finally? i think he did. i was wondering how long an affable kid such as davis coudl endure being the hustle guy on the team and also being the only one that his head coach sold out to the media.
man up, snaketart and tell me WHY doc rivers never said a SYLLABLE about fat lazy lollygaggin sheed and in FIVE FULL YEARS never uttered a word to the press about rondo's miserable incompetence at the free throw line and how that affects this team. yet time and again davis gets dimed out the press like a chump.
is that fair? would you eventually snap if you had a boss like that? would you think there was a whole lot of hypocrisy going on? is doc rivers being a classy professional by doing this to davis, year after year?
correct answers are: no, yes, yes, no.
so don't try to mumbo jumbo me, you know exactly what i am talking about. or if you want to go to the rug with it, tell me WHO and WHEN doc went to the press about. not even nate robinson when nate was KILLING US this last year before the trade- i mean nate was HORRIBLE but doc didn't leak crap to the press about him, right?
give me some striaght talk for a change snakes
