    Re: OKC vs Celtics

    Ainge said he was looking to extend Rondo and now Rondo says he wants to get a 10 years extension.  Is everyone being sincere or there are more to it than meets the eyes?

    He said " I wouldnt mind extending 10 years"  that is a lot different than " I want a 10 year extension"

    Please, no offense, I'm just curious?

     

    fiercy's got a boatload of posts he needs to make daily in order to meet his monthly quota, particularly with his new ID. if we must suffer a lack of substance, well then, we must.

    ain't that right, fiercy?

    To me it is. I think he was just saying he wanted to stay in boston. The ten years was just hyperbole. Just how I read it.

    I was only explaining why I think this game is pretty even.

     

    Pete said the Celts have the advantage because KD is not playing.

    I said it's pretty even because we also don't have AB and Rondo is not a good fit in Stevens' system.



    I think if Rondo were healthy and the Celtics were a good team they would win this game by 20 even if there was no system at all. the problem is the team stinks, not the system, not rondo.

    I did not paraphrased the 10 years part, and no question that is hyperbole with no possibility of ever happening.  I only substituted "wants" for "wouldn't mind", slightly different tone, I would admit.

    Rondo is healthy - unfortunately, the rest of this season he will be dragging around a knee brace, getting back in to game shape, and overcoming the pschological affects of a major knee injury (planting foot with confidence)!

    I don't get to see OKC much, but it looks like at least Perks trade was not so bad for us.

    Fierce,

    You are the only person who repeats the same thing over and over and over and over again like "Rondo is not a good fit in Brad Stevens' system".

    What does YOUR contention that "Rondo is not a good fit in Brad Stevens' system" have to do with this game thread?

    Did you watch "The Brad Stevens Coaches Show" in Boston or something where Stevens said that?  Or is this just Fierce's opinion?  I ask because you make that statement in just about every thread you've posted in lately.

    Please, no offense, I'm just curious?

     



    Pete

     

     

    Brad Stevens' system is an equal opportunity offense.

    It's not like Doc's system where it's more deliberate.

     

    Stevens' offensive system is to try to get players as many open shots as possible.

    It doesn't matter who that player is.

    If Rondo is to succeed in Stevens' system, he has to make those open 3-point shots.

    Passing up open 3-point shots will cause the offense to stall in Stevens' system.

     



    Fierce, come on man.  What are you talking about?  Do you hear yourself?  How does "passing up 3-point open shots causes the offense to stall in Stevens' system"?  I'm not a genius but going 2 for 17 on 3-pointers just might do more to stall the offense than passing them up.  Don't you think?

    I'm wrong that this game should be "advantage Celtics" and you are wrong that this game is "pretty even".

    AB's absence and "Rondo is not a good fit in Brad Stevens' system" have NOTHING to do with tonight's poor showing.

    If AB was available and Rondo WAS a good fit because he doesn't pass up 3-point shots, we'd still be down 18.

    But I still like your posts and their, unusual logic.

    Disagree....he is healthy ...just not in game shape....and dealing with the after effects of a knee injury.....not healthy would mean he is suffering from an injury or illness.....is he injured? is he ill?... not to my knowledge...

    It's simple, in today's NBA if you're a starting PG and you can't make open 3-point shots, you become a liability.

    Doc Rivers did a good job masking Rondo's weakness.



    Please. Stop it...
