    Phil Pressey Day ? Or is it Peyton Siva Day ?

    RED ALERT ~!


    Today is the day the Celtics must decide if Phil Pressey's contract is guaranteed....


    http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/234300/Pistons-To-Release-Peyton-Siva" rel="nofollow">http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/234300/Pistons-To-Release-Peyton-Siva


    Today we also learn that Peyton Siva was released by Detroit......I loved watching Siva in The Final Four and always thought he had a shot to be good in the NBA....the question was always his size


    So what do you say, Phil Pressey or Peyton Siva ?


    Both are undersized, but we kinda know what the deal is with Pressey......might it make sense for the Celtics to bring in Peyton Siva as an upgrade over Phil Pressey ?

    I was just going to start a thread on the same topic.

    Can't see either one getting a ton of mins this year, they are about even.  Read the Celtics like Pressey, so I think it'll be the Devil-you-know scenario.

    I think Pressey stays too.

    He's already knows Stevens' system.

    And he's only going to be a 3rd string PG.

    Not trying to dog Phil Pressey, I know he's a good guy and his dad was a great player, I hope he makes it in the NBA.............I'm just saying.....

     

    SIVA was a player who I thought would be really good, he only got in 26 games in Detroit plus 10 D League games.......just saying, roster spots 12-15 is where you have to keep bringing in guys trying to strike gold, we know what Pressey can do, is he really going to make a huge leap this season ? He might, but nothing he's done suggests that other than a few games in Orlando last week, not trying to run the guy out of town, but Peyton Siva is available today.......

    If I'm Siva, I won't go to the Celtics because they already have Rondo and Smaht.

     

    Siva will just be the 3rd string PG if he signs with the Celts.

    I think he can be a backup PG in the NBA.

    Other teams might offer him more playing time.

    Unless he believes like many others that Rondo is going to be traded soon.

    Pressey, Siva, Stockton, Smith................no one any better than the other.  Pressey knows his role, and will come cheap.  I think he stays.  I would prefer Stockton to any of those........but apparently he doesn't play D.  At least Pressey tries on that end of the floor.

    IMO - Pressey stays.

    please get rid of Pressey.  They can find someone else to fist bump olynk, shoot 30 percent from the floor and fall down a lot.

    Short better be able to score in the NBA, Pressey scares no one with his shooting.  Tiny was a great Celtic but he could do it all.

    That's what I'm saying !


     


    SIVA is worth pursuing for a minimum wage contract

    Pressey is less money, I believe, and if Siva is not considerably better (and we don't know this), then he will stick as a third point guard.  He was not even drafted, and  a rookie.  I think he can still get better.  Drive, and stop taking so many 3's.  Doesn't matter - if Rondo and Smart are healthy, whoever is the 3rd PG's will have plenty of DNP-CD's or inactives.

    All small PG's aren't like Little Nate, Spud Webb or even Mugsy Bogues! They are guys who have to quick because they are being guarded by guys a foot taller and with arm lengths equaling almost another half a foot in coverage! Pressey, Stockton, Siva or any other small PG is at a distinct disadvantage in the modern day NBA. If Darius Bertrans is healthy I'd rather he gets the roster spot. Unlike sex size really does matter in the NBA.

    His dad is Paul Pressey.

    Harder to cut someone with a former NBA player for a dad.

    I remember his dad well. He was very skilled, although if he was 7 inches shorter like his son, he probably would have stunk as well.

    Couldn't shoot in college. Can't shoot in the NBA. Give his roster spot to another young player to take a shot at making the team . On a team that is building for the future; what's to lose.

    Stink now but smell good in the not so distant future.

    I think by 2019 the Celts will smell like fresh doughnuts!

    End of the bench guys are as much fun to talk about as all star in my opinion. I would be doing the same thing no matter how good the Celtics were.

    No problem with that at all.  We are a team with little leverage and a non-competitive future.  The Garnett trade and having so many max players put us in this inevitable mode that as was mentioned will take years to change.  It is painful waiting for it to change. As the speculation comes up with nothing 99.5% of the time.
