How do you think we would have faired in these eastern conference playoffs? I just watched the final game of the Wizards Bulls series, and i feel that we could have beaten either team easily. Had Danny known that the Knicks were going to suck this bad and that the Pacers were going to crash in the playoffs, I think that we would be getting warmed up for a Celtics Heat ECF right now.
Danny definitely made the right move for the short term and the long term, and if I were GM I would have done exactly what he did. But don't you agree that had the Celtics kept the core around we would be in line for an ECF rematch against the Heat this year? It would have been the first time that KG, Pierce, Rondo, and Green all played at the same time healthy. Add Sullinger and Olynyk to the mix, and it would have been a good series.
"The competition, the naysayers, the owners who talk too much. The people who don't think a 36-year-old can do what I do. I take a lot of pride in my craft, I work really hard at my craft everyday, and I'm a true professional."
