Since Danny could not pull off a deal to bring in an impact player, like Josh Smith, who could provide rebounding and scoring, he basically did nothing.
For a much needed dependable scorer, he brought in an inconsistent and individual baller in Crawford. AS it turns out, Crawford, like Terry, is not a dependable scorer and is otherwise disruptive to the offense team flow. Swing and a miss. We still lack sufficient scoring. But at least he tried.
Even with a weak offense, the Celtics could have been competitive if Danny had acquired someone...anyone to grab some rebounds. Very few teams, other than Miami who has a super charged offense, can consistently win when they give up a 10-20 rebound differential per game. To not strengthen our ability to close that rebound deficiency as the highest priority, must do, even if it required giving up too much, was imo, incompetent.
I don't believe that this team can even reach the second round of the playoffs no matter who they play. Our guards can't score consistently (Rondo doesn't solve this problem) and our front court can't rebound... ever. Hopefully Sully will narrow the rebounding gap next year, but we still need more presense underneath.
Bottom line - Danny gave up on the Celtics and the fans this year. One of the biggest Cellics managmnt bunders in recent memory will hurt us for years to come.
