    In Response to KG Rapidly Declining : Agree.  They need to sign another big man.  Not sure who they would have to trade to accomplish this, but they definitely need more size.  I believe that if KG has a bad season he may decide to retire.  This really doesn't help us this season, but since he has no contract after this season, it is highly unlikely that the Celtics or another team would want to sign him if he ends up having a bad season.

    Plenty of teams will take a guy who averages 10.8 and 5.8, but he`s taking a pay cut.

    KG is the story of this Celtics season at this point.  The fall off is building each game. Let's hope he proves us wrong tonight.  If not I believe he is injured.

    I was thinking the same thing.  Wonder if something is wrong we don't know about.  Usually bigs continue to play OK in the later part of their career.  Hard to believe KG can just lose it so quick.  Don't think he will ever be a 10 rebound guy again but I think he can be the PF with descent center, or be the center with a strong rebounding PF.  Unless something happens we are going to have to continue with JO and Steamer.  Doc has to continue to give Steamer time even if he is playing bad. Anyone that can block shots in one game obviously has a knack for it.   We need that.

    It is easy to say it is age but considering this abrupt season and the lack of a pre-season it is not crazy to assume he is a having a leg issue.

    KG was a better athlete than his competition. His footwork has always been horrible. He needed a coach when he was coming up to give him that. He was too good and it never happened. Now that the athleticism is fading, the fundamentals aren't there. He still has great heart and can shoot, but the lack of footwork is killing him. That won't change. Given a strong 5 along side of him, he can still be effective. And that's our problem, isn't it? C'mon JO!... Stiemsma... Fesenko???

    Leta not blame our centers for KG not performing.

    KG has relied upon height, speed & jumping ability most of his career to grab boards and block shots.  Hes been in decline since the knee went out.. he no power to hold anything in the middle, hes skinny and not a power player, plain & simple. He shoots fade away 2 footers.

    C'mon, this is the same KG for the past few years with an exception here & there. What looks worse in his game is defensively. All the talking and communication in the world cant make up for not being in position and unable to challenge anyone.  Same holds true for JON... Yeah, he had a good game vs Pistons... those type games will come and go... expect lots of inconsistency from all the old times...it comes with the territory and we've witnessed it the last few years.

    Nothing unexpected imo... just dont waste time wishing they return to former years.. A game here and there but thats gonna be about it

    You may be on to something.  But I'm going to wait a few more games, until he gets his legs back, and then start worrying!!

    KG will average 16 w/ 8 boards in 29 minutes this season

    That's far from "no production" , plus he is still the defensive QB and a mentor to all the young big men.

    STOP TRYING TO BURY KG AND THE BIG THREE ERA !

    STAT GEEKS AND FANTASY NERDS HAVE CHANGED NBA COVERAGE INTO ANALYSIS OF METRICS AND CHARTING TRENDS.

    THE BIG THREE CELTICS WITH RONDO ARE STILL AWESOME TO WATCH , ONE OF THE TOP 5 MOST EXCITING TEAMS IN THE NBA , EVEN IF THE MEDIA HAS MOVED ON....

    IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE A CELTICS FAN , WE ARE STILL KNOCKING AT THE DOOR AND DANNY IS STILL HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF...

    THE CELTICS ARE CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDERS IN YEAR 5 OF THE 3 YEAR WINDOW !

    ENOUGH WITH THE BELLYACHING FROM THE FAIR WEATHERED FELLOWSHIP OF THE MISERABLE...

    THE CELTICS ARE MUST SEE TV EVERY GAME THEY PLAY, HOW DO YOU NOT LOVE WATCHING THIS TEAM ?

     The most encouraging sign from KG tonight is when he rejected Wall's after the first free throw miss follow up.  That's the KG attitude that's contagious.

    There's no doubt that against the Wizards, KG can't be stopped.

    Ugh!
