    You need to package  him with anothe rplayer or draft choice.  But his contract is not that bad and when making a trade for a big man you need to make contracts come close to washing.  Your not going to get anything quality at 5 mil.  So you need to package a few players.

    Complete game so far.  Let's close out the last 7 minutes strong and it will be a great game for the C's.  Close it out poorly and its a complete waste.

    And some signs of improvement if it's not too much to ask...

    [/QUOTE]

    You said it. It is hard to see with Wilcox out and Bradley not back a lot of improvement though.  The team has a hole in it and it needs to be addressed with a trade or we are going to struggle.    

    [/QUOTE]

    im not even so sure we need a trade. We played worse than we are right now last year in the early going and look what happened. A healthy Avery Bradley makes a bigger impact than most ppl realize. as Rondo said, "When hes out there playing lockdown D like he is, it tends to be contagious." And it was last year. i want all the new guys on the team to get comfortable and AB to get back, THEN ill seriously measure this teams ceiling. What we are seeing right now is NOT as good as we can be.

    [/QUOTE]

    I agree about what Bradley could do but we need help for KG.  It's a fact consider what will happen if KG goes down.  

    [/QUOTE]

    If KG goes down we are done no matter what.

    Bass has two years left...so the team that gets him is stuck with him, it's not expiring contract which is valuable. Bad contract for trading a sub earning starters money.

    Jeff is coming around to Celtic basketball on both ends of the floor. Losing Baby and gaining Bass is looking like a championship make/miss mistake by Doc/Danny.

    seems everytime there's an offensive rebound in this league, it leads to a 3 or score... how often have we said "breakthru" game for jefff green? when will it just be an automatic for him to do well with consistency

    [/QUOTE]


    If he or anybody else has 2 really good games and 1 OK game; they are valuable...Jeff is  valuable.

    Bas isn't bad but if your looking for rebounding, he's not your man.  There is a place for a guy that can score 10 or more a game.  You just need to find a team that is already strong rebounding but lacks a scoring punch from the PF spot.

    This was a great defensive game for the Cs... I have to say starting Collins was a very positive step... I thought he did a great job... rotation was very good as well except maybe for Bass who seems lost on both ends of the court... Doc should realize after this game that most of Bass minutes should be Sully's...he is a way better rebounder, can score and his defense is improving....

    Rondo only 4 but the team had 25 and that is solid!

    It's his defense that stinks...he's late on rotations. Offensively he's pretty good with a reliable 15 footer and is developing a bit of an ability to make a move in the paint (limited). But for teams that relie on help defense, like the Celtics, he's a liability.

    By the way, anyone who thinks that DWill is better than Rondo just doesnt get it.... Rondo is a complete PG now that his jumper is improved ...DWill is one dimensional

    I agree.  if there is a move to be made, you must package Bass in it.

    It's nice to reflect on all the doubters that sais Rondo will never improve his shot.  His shot is getting better every year and will still get better.

    [/QUOTE]

    Can't get those minutes when you fould out in 15 minutes of play!  Too often he's been in foul trouble.  As he changes that, he'll be on the floor more.

    What looked like an advantage early in the season is actually slowing down their development (deep team with lots of players deserving minutes).  That means no one gets enough minutes other than Paul and RR.   Slows down getting into rhythm and getting to really understand the D.  But, they'll get it and we'll get better by late in the year.  Then, those who don't get it will sit as Doc shortens the rotation and you see the minutes for the top 8 players go way up.    

    I predict it will be Paul, KG, Rondo, Green, Bradley, Sully, Terry, and Bass.  Lee's minutes will decline as will Bass to a lesser extent.  You won't see much of Wilcox, Barbosa, nor Collins at all.

    This was the best defensive game we have played this year.  EVERYONE played D.  They lucked out on a huge backboard 3 pter and another gift 3 pter after we played great defense and a ball pops out to a Net.  Take those 6 pts off and we allowed 70 pts.   Not too shabby.
