    No way. No how.

    Keep Green and Lee.  Trade Terry and Bass...or Rondo straight up.

    Garnett's shooting beter than he did last year and better than his career percentage.

    What he can't do is make players out of Bass and Green.

    It just makes me sick.  Save KG who shows up every minute of every game, these guys have no pride.Paul Pierce is not an NBA starter anymore.  Not when you have guys waiting on the bench.  How does Jason Collins start over Fab Melo at this stage?  Wilcox sure; Collins is a stiff.  Give Melo the minutes.  Get a wheelchair for Terry.  This is PUH-thetic.

    Don't get started on Collins.  What a ridiculous signing.  Hollins or anybody would have been better than Collins. He could not score ten in the D-league.

    Actually, I don't want Gasol.  1. He stinks of Laker.  2. He's soft.  3. He stinks of Laker.  

    He would be number 6 on my list and way behind Cousins, Gortat, Love and Bargnani

    Ill timed boneheaded shot by Rondo.  This is EXACTLY the poor decision making that haunts him

    Love Sullinger's rebounding.  Everything else stinks.  Stupid fouls because he's slow and can't jump.  Offensive moves with no jump so he's like BBD without a jumper.   If he stays in a role, the kid could be very good.  When he gets out of his role, he stinks.   Sound familiar?

    and Tommy correctly calls Rondo out for letting their defense get set while he pounds it on the floor out front.  RONDO DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!...er more crazy.

    But who on the bench plays better than Pierce?  I would love for Paul to sit but we don't have a player to start.

    Our problem is that we no longer have any stars.   No Lebron, Wade, Rose, Durant, Duncan, Parker, Griffith, Westbrook, Chris Paul, Carmelo, etc.   ONce Ray, Paul, and KG got old, we don't have a star (and Rondo is NOT it).

    How many times do we turn our heads, watch the ball, and have our man go behind us?  Its like watching high school kids.   Who was guarding Gay and how can he just get behinds us when we are tring to come back?

    Oh, Jeff Green clearly starts over Paul Pierce.  I don't think Green is an All Star, but he is better than Pierce at this stage.  Also, a legitimate center would be lovely.  Not Jason Collins or even Chris Wilcox, but someone like Gortat who has some idea how to move his feet on both ends.  That way KG can slide back to 4.  But yeah, Pierce should be playing about 23 mins a game in a backup capacity.

    Also, I am all done singing Rondo's praises.  He has a once-in-a-generation combination of skills but he is squandering them for some reason.  Is he trying to prove something?  I don't get it.  In the same season he has gone from a special player in the league to a defensive liability and a 17 second dribble out point guard.

    + 1.   Its obvious that when the shooters can't shoot, Rondo is useless.   He got lots of assists because Pierce, Ray, and KG were high percentage shooters.   Once our shooters stopped shooting this year, notice his assists go way down (averaging something like 8 assists lately).

    Despite his assists, I maintain that Rondo makes the pieces around him worse not better. and if he is our star, he's a second rate one.

    A center would absolutely be great.  But, we don't have one!   So, Green stands around and plays passive ball and that's better than Pierce?   Pierce stinks but Green is not better.  We don't have a center.  Our power forward (Bass) is at best a spot minute player.  

    Danny's talent judgement is clearly WAY off.
