    Need A DEAD EYE SHOOTING 2

    If Rondo statrs the season and we have Rondo, Sullinger, KO,  and Green, we have a very talented offensive team.  If you could add a 2 that could light it up from outside, you would be looking at a great offensive team.  The 2 would get a lot of wide open looks from outside.  Does Ray have a son?  I do not see him on the team now, Brooks I am not familiar with, Avery is inconsistent from outside, Lee may show different but did not show it last year, a trade to bring in a quality 2 and we would be a lot of fun to watch.  Just a case of cabin fever.

    You're right. We need a pure shooter. This offense (as shaky as its been) functioned because Garnett and Pierce both demanded double teams in situations, opening up the floor for Jeff and Avery. 

     

    Right now, this current team does not have anyone who really commands a double team. Maybe, maybe Jeff but 'm not so sure of that. We also have no post players. We lost our best two in KG and Pierce.

     

    I think people underestimate the amount of struggles this year will hold.

     

    Imagine the first month (1/4 of the season) with Pressey, Bradley, Green, Olynyk, Sullinger. Sure, maybe thats exciting for us to watch, but I just don't know how that team scores or defends. Maybe Hump or Fav start with Sully. Its going to be tough, man.

    Sully and Oly are not proven contributors by any stretch.  Sully showed brief spurts of potential in limited number of games and Oly has yet to play a single game in the NBA...

    I would be suprised if either of them started at the beginning of the season, and regardless, both will need much development.

    Lets hope both Bradley and Lee have been working on their outside shot and will regain their confidence that Doc bruised.  We can count on Brooks to light it up from the 2 position.

    Brooks has the potential to be a go-to shooter, but as yet, he hasn't been positioned to do so.  He played more in his first season, due to Nets injuries, and did ok for a rookie.  Last year, he played behind Joe Johnson and just didn't get much pt.  If he gets a genuine chance and can regain his Providence swagger, he might be the shooter that's been missing since RA left, or even before he left.  My hope is that he has a breakout year, not just for his sake, but because it would be fun to have a perimeter shooter who could spread the defense and allow some of the bigs to get easier looks.  If Brooks can reach 16-20 pts. and shoot a decent percentage, that means Rondo, Green, and Sullinger can be more effective.

    Not a chance that Brooks averages 16-20 points?!!! 

    Everyone would be very happy and he will be doing real well if he averages 10-13.

    Umm wut? Rondo, Sully olynik, Green and a 2 that can shoot outside is a "great" offensive team?

    I don't even think it would be average.

    he relies almost solely on the 3-point shot, taking 5.2 of his 7.2 field goal attempts per game last season from beyond the arc. He hit a pretty good clip from that range as a senior (38.2 percent) and experienced further success during the Las Vegas Summer League, connecting on 8-14 triples (57.1 percent) en route to averaging 5.0 points over 14.3 minutes for the Phoenix Suns entry.

    If The Celts get to the 10th worst record this year, I will tip my hat to Brad Stevens.  The roster has way too many issues.
