    points in the paint, team rebounding

    the Celtics are 26th in the league in points in the paint out of 30 teams (38 per game, Denver #1 with 57 per game). 29th in team rebounding (39 per game. Indiana #1 with 46). we have developed into a jump shooting team with no inside game. in most of out losses we get killed on the boards. not a formula for success.

    Well this has been going on for a couple of years.  Nothing new here.

    Sullinger will help next year, but they still need a young, rebounding, shoot blocking big with all star prowess to make it farther into the playoffs for the forseeable future. No one on their roster with those credentials.

    Maybe we could sign Chris Wilcox.

     

    Oh.....wait.........




    Wilcox is not exactly "a young, rebounding, shoot blocking big with all star prowess"

    He is actually pretty good.

     

    But he can't do much sitting on the bench.

    Maybe we could sign Darko.

    Oh.....wait......




    So many misused bigs.

    If Wilcox were all star material he would have been one by age 30? He is not that big that will dominate the boards nightly while shuting down the inside.

    it's not about making trades or changing personnel. its about coaching philosophy. this has been a problem for several years under the Doc Rivers era. any good high school or college team has better boxing out/rebounding fundamentals. we didn't win all those champoinships by being strickly jump shooting teams like this current bunch.  stats don't lie.

    It kills me when guys take a jumper and know that it's not going in and don't follow the shot to try for a rebound.  How many times do we see 4 guys heading down to the other end of the court when a three goes up from the corner?  You can't get rebounds when you're on the other side on mid court!!!  C'mon Doc, try coaching for once!

    Your right,  come on Doc,  do your job!!!

    Of course Doc says he can prove thats it is better for the team to get back on defense rather than chase a offensive rebound.  I bet he is lying about it.

    No its about better personel. Bass and Wilcox have never been good rebounders. they didnt just become that way when they got to Boston.

    Re: points in the paint, team rebounding

    Absolutely right on with many posts that our rebounding has been weak for a few years...since Perk went down in game 6 in 2010 but we really have not dominated the paint since Bird, McHale & Parish days. Good insight too that as a jump shooting team when the shot misses, Doc has all the players going back down the court to play defense instead of maybe 2-3 players aggressively going after the offensive rebound.

    We have many guys who can play PG, Terry, Bradley, Lee, Crawford, Williams and yes not the ball handler that Rondo is but they are still effective. Heck, even Pierce can bring the ball up, slow & old perhaps, but still can play a pretty good PG & toss up 3s over shorter guards(remember he won the 3pt contest 2 years ago even when we had Allen).


    As has been suggested, Trade Rondo first if possible for Cousins & Evans, then for Dwight Howard and then Al Jefferson. Then KG could play more PF where he is deadly 5-15 ft out as he's usually 2-3 inches tallers than other PFs. Sully & Wilcox will be good backups & who knows if Melo will develop !!!
