In response to darkman20's comment:
Sorry, but this whole:"the team is still new thing" being the main reason to why the Celts are struggle just doesn't hold up in my opinion. Most of the new guys that are suppose to play a vital role in the Celts success are veteran players...on top of that they had pre season and plenty of games under their belt by now to alteast show better chemistry, but it hasn't happen, in fact, it's regressing the other way, and Doc seems to be pulling at straws to try to fix it.
NoT only that, but the starting five, with the supposingly upgrade on defense at off guard (not), should atleast be playing better defense, they gave up more points than the bench tonight...WAS'UP with THAT!!! That's just inexcusable.
Besides, look at 2008; that group was completely a new team all together, and they rocketed out of the starting line; how come no one called that a rebuilding year? Let's face it, this team is letting us down because we all picked them to be the only true contender to the Heats; now the celtics will be lucky if they make the playoffs the way this is going.
KG only plays 29 minutes per game.
Pierce only plays 34 minutes per game.
What happens when Pierce and KG sit?
New players come in, right?
In 2008 the Celts didn't rebuild, the Celts built a new team from scratch. It was a totally different team from the 2006-07 season. A new team!
This current Celts team is being rebuilt on the fly.
Maybe the rebounding problem is not due to the new players. But have you seen the games? I mean did you see every Celtic game this season?
If you did then you know plays like KG thinking Lee will shoot and Lee thinking KG will pop happen all the time. Why? It's because they're still trying to learn to play with each other.
