    Very astute basketball mind.

    Ignore.

     

     



    Dude...you said pressey was better than Rondo.

    Not only are you not astute you are thin skinned and scared.



    Not hardly.

    Your posts are just a series of insults.

    Go back and read them yourself.

    I don't insult people who disagree with me.

    Nobody in their right mind would have traded AB and kept Lee.  AB is much younger and with so much more of an upside than Lee that it's ridiculous to say otherwise.

    Also, there seems to be a special connection between Rondo and AB when they play together.  We knew what we had in Lee but it would be nice to see if the backcourt of Rondo and AB could develop into a top backcourt.  That jury is still out but nobody could say it doesn't look positive.  There is alot of potential for that backcourt from what we've seen so far when they play together.

    As for the money, if we can sign AB in the $7-7.5M range, that would be the perfect scenario for our backcourt.

    As for the thread title, Pressey is not in the same ballpark as Bayless.  Bayless can score and he can play a lick of defense.  Pressey cannot shoot, cannot defend and makes one ill-advised pass for every nice dish.  Pressey had the label of turning the ball over too much in college and that hasn't changed because he's just not athletic enough and can't shoot so defenses can more easily anticipate his passes.



    I bet Memphis disagrees with you.

    They are 12-1 since they got Lee.

    And Pressey's on and off court plus and minus is higher than Bayless.

    Chris, nothing like the record as evidence, huh.  However, your facts are wrong!  Memphis has lost their last two games so they cannot be 12-1 since they got Lee.  They are 7-3 in their last ten games.

    As much credit as you give to them obtaining Lee, you fail to mention the return of Marc Gasol as a major reason why Memphis has been playing well lately.

    Lee is making much more than Bayless and he has two more years on his contract while Bayless' contract expires in a few months.  Lee has played well since joining Memphis but his role is alot different there than it was in Boston and it should have been.

    For a backup guard who can play both the point and the shooting guard, I think the Celtics put themselves in a much better position with this trade.  Lee was never going to be the starting Celtics guard in this system playing the minutes he's playing in Memphis.

    Lee was our best two guard, so Danny traded him and Crawford because we are in full tank mode.

    And Memphis is 11-3 with Lee starting.

    Re: Pressey is better than Bayless

    If Courtney Lee was our best two guard, in two years he never consistently displayed it.  Since he didn't display it and with that contract, he was expendable.

    He's only played 15 games with Memphis.  He should be playing better.  He's getting more minutes, but more than anything, he's playing with better players on a better team.

    This is why you frustrate me. Say something that shows that you don't think that Lee is the sole reason Memphis is playing well....please...for all of our sakes.

    Re: Pressey is better than Bayless

    Bayless is def the better player compared to pressey, better shooter/scorer/versatility. But he is also a downgrade from C lee who was our most consistent bench player this year. He has also been playing great ball with memphis too.  Pressey has had  some good (mainly that washington game) moments but as i predicted once rondo came back the dnp's would pile up. Pressey is a 3rd string pg. Bayless has been a decent rotational backourt player for a few years now.  

    Agree with petey that ab has much more upside than lee, (since hes much younger) but ab is not much of upgrade over lee at this point, but prob will be  in the future.  Especially seeing how much ab has improved his mid range jumper, he seems like a kid whos a gym rat and puts the time in to improve his game. Hopefully next year he shows same type of improvement and can become more consitent  with his his 3 pt shot, so he can become the ultimate 3 and D player that every team needs in todays nba.

    Fungus credits Lee with their success as well. According to Fungus that justifies "tanking mode." As long as Lee shoots well then he's a better player than Bayless and therefore Danny intentionally traded down to help the C's tank.



    That is exactly right.

    Danny had to trade Lee and Crawford or we might win too many games.

    Nobody wants Bayless.

    Re: Pressey is better than Bayless

    A trade that sends Bradley away returns more than Bayless. If all that was available was Bayless, why should Ainge have used a better chip?  Everyone hammers Jeff Green for inconsistency, but Lee's disparate, yo-yo appearances just wore out his welcome. Bayless is a more confident player, even if he's not better than Lee, and confidence breeds success more so than timidity.  

    Additionally, Pressey isn't better than anyone else in the NBA.  He's been playing only because of Rondo's absence (and a SF/PF-heavy roster), and now that's in the past - rotations do not include him, especially now that Johnson has been made secure for the season. Paul was/is the player in the Pressey family.

    Yeah I am a writer. That is why I am on here a lot. I have a bunch of windows open all day long. We went through this a year ago. I am on the computer...all day long.  Boy do I feel bad that I work for myself on the computer all day and check boston.com frequently. sometimes I might walk my dog or have a fap but other than that...

     

    I am not BP though. Grr. You ever notice that all you ever do on here anymore is post about me?

    I love it.
