    I agree, Kirk!  I think Doc likes Green off the bench, but I can't argue with you!

    In place of Terry.

    And Sullinger can take Bass' place.

      Green needs to start and play at least 30 minutes a game!!

    Green doesn't really need to start. What Green needs is to play 30 minutes per game.

    Once Bass is gone, Green will get a lot of playing time.

    Right now the Celts are trying to raise the trade value of Lee and Bass. Hopefully we won't have to wait that long.



    i actually like lee, though consistency is an issue, but if this is what it takes to get a big guy - gortat? - in here (and it doesn't involve giving up sullinger) then it has to happen. gortat, garnett, pierce, bradley, rondo. green, terry, sullinger, wilcox, barbosa at least gives them a shot at making some headway in the playoffs, though they probably need another serviceable big guy as well.

    Agreed.  Green is not ready to start in place of Lee/Terry.  That is because Boston has to create its offense out of motion with and without the ball.  With Green and Pierce, the ball handling dies.  The offense has to be created by ball movement and that is vulnerable to bad passes and steals.

    Doc has already shortened the guard rotation.  He now needs to give Green more minutes at 4.  Green finally played a complete game today.  I saw him read and react like never before.  We have to hope that he is starting to morph out of his shell.

    I also like Lee.

    The problem is when Bradley returns, Lee is redundant.



    that's true. and sullinger makes bass redundant.

    Re: It's time for Green to start

    Its time to do it for one reason,  Green is starting to play really well.  He needs to play starter minutes. He needs to replace Bass in the starting lineup and Lee in place of Terry.  Lee and Rondo are small but they are very fast and quick which should get us some easy points. Terry could go where he is more comfortable which is off the bench.  Not sure why we are always trying to change guys from doing what is normal for them.

    Never looked at it that way. Makes sense!

    ive been saying this for a long time




    Ditto!

    I noticed something. They don't run plays for JT like they did for Allen. Remember how everything revolved around Allen...once he got going then it opened things up. I notice alot of offense going through PP and that's fine but PP is a turnover machine and him handling the ball so much really messes up the offense. PP forces a lot of shots.

    Green needs to play thirty or more minutes and be there at the end of a close game.  Especially when he has played well the whole game.  Terry had a bad night and nobody should be worried about him. He can play.

    Hi,

    I don't know about JG starting but he is very good at the end of the game, e.g. last night's game.

    After this last week I think he should start and have PP come off the bench. PP has developed some very predictible and bad habits lately.

    Re: It's time for Green to start

    pierce will not be vacating his starting slot any time soon. rondo isn't going anywhere. jason terry is the best option at back-up point only because they don't have one, but he is not that much better of an option than barbosa. perhaps bradley fills that role when he returns? Terry could absolutelynot start at point over any stretch or would get badly exposed. tghe majority of his minutes need to come at the two, where he will continue to be an asset to this team. doesn't matter whether green starts or not, though they really have no choice but to play him more minutes and see how it goes. maybe he'll start to develop some constency and stop disappearing for long stretches.

    You are exactly right.



    I don't think we are trying to raise those guys value.  Hell they have been in the league long enough for every team to know what they can do and how they do it.  Bass is a very good shooter and Lee is better than he has been and he hustles his butt off.

    I really think Doc likes bringing Green off the bench.  If we rest PP one game, start Green, see how it goes...........but I believe we got him to help the second unit.
