    Fierce, I can agree that they need to rebuild chemistry.  I can agree that they need to learn to play together and that will reduce turnovers.

    But, Jason Terry was used to getting wide open jumpers and he's getting that here.  Lee is also getting wide open, in rhythm jumpers.  They are just not knocking them down.  I don't worry about that for one game.  But, they have done is most of the 3.5 games played so far.  Only the first half of the first game did Lee shoot well.

    There's no excuse for that.  Sorry - you're too sympathetic with them.

    [/QUOTE]

    Shane Battier was only shooting 34% from 3pt land in the regular season last season. But in the playoffs and Finals, he was shooting lights out. He went from 34% to 38%.

    We all know Lee and Terry are very good shooters. Eventually their shots will start falling.

    [/QUOTE]


    34 to 38 isn't a monster % jump, you'd have thought Battier went from 25 to 50 based on how mediocre he looked reg season and how deadly he later became... but any #'s in that range from Terry/Lee would be appreciated right now.

    I don't worry about Lee, he is young and learning a new system and maybe trying too hard or just jittery, who knows. He is a career 44/39 guy... he will get to that eventually.

    Gotta be a little more worred about Terry b/c he talked so much during the summer and is the type of battle tested vet who should be immune to this type of stuff and just hit the ground running (like Ray did) but he has not, and he is 35.

    This team is sad right now.  No one can shoot.  Why is that.  Lee, Terry, Green, were all brought in to score and not one can hit a shot and the Wizards are hitting like all stars.  What gives. Unbelievable watching this crap.  Don't get me wrong the C's are playing hard but it''s the F&^%ing Wizards.  Sad team right now. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Stats:

    Green  44% for the year on FG percent and 33% on 3 pointers

    Terry   38% for the year so far and 29% on 3 pointers

    Lee    50% for the year on FG but 25% on 3 pointers.

    Please come back Bradley or Ray or anyone who can hit a darn shot!

    [/QUOTE]

    Imagine if we would have gotten Harden instead of Green,

    25-30 points garanteed from the SG spot.

    Rondo-Harden imagine that ...

    [/QUOTE]

    If we had gotten Chirs Paul, if we had drafted Duncan, if we had convinced Dwight Howard to join us, Imagine if we had gotten the first draft choice that year and gotten Durant.

    If only......

    [/QUOTE]


    ping pong balls are not something you can be as mad at as your GM basically having a deal in place for Harden and then at the last second allowing the other GM to sucker-punch him with the 'Jeff Green and 1st rd pick' switch-a-roo

    Back to where we talked before - what are we getting out of the shooting guard position on this team?   Someone tell me what we are getting?  Nothing.

    Be glad when Bradley is back!!!

    [/QUOTE]

    That's why I said when you lose 70% of the players from last year's team, you're rebuilding!

    I'm not saying the Celts are a rebuilding team like a lottery team. The Celts are rebuilding because they need to rebuild team chemistry. There are so many new guys. It's going to take some time.

    Perfect example is throwing passes that end up in a turnover because the passer was expecting the other player to be there.

    [/QUOTE]

    When you talk about the NBA you only use the term rebuilding when it comes to teams that tear it down and go into the lotto... not teams that swap out role players and bordeline starters for new guys in an effort to improve a contender... that is NOT 'rebuilding' it is re-tooling or a 'revamped' lineup or 'roster upgrades' or any number or terms that do not imply the team is out of contention and looking towards the future. Which is why 'rebuilding' is a 100% wrong term to use.

    Lots of panic going on in here.  Game 4.  Early November.

    Man up a little.

    OK, I can see how the motion gets much better when more of the old faces are on the floor.  I can see how we will get better as the new guys get comfortable.  I am feeling much better now.

    True that. My only concern for this team is Jeff Green.

    Can he man up? I don't know...

    Green should take notice.

    Outside our Big 3, he's the most important piece.

    Not the shot I would have preferred.  They are in the penalty and all we do is pound the ball and not try to dribble drive to make something happen.

    Rondo bailed them out with that heave.

    The 2 critical shots the Wizards had to stay in it were from poor Rondo defense.  Can he gamble any more than he does?  Wow.
