In response to rameakap's comment:
Least year the club won 26 games and blew like 17 4th quarter leads.
Play the "who would you rather have player X in 2013-14 or player X in 2014-15" game for me.
Would you rather have recovering from ACL surgery missing half the season Rondo or contract year chip on his shoulder healthy Rondo?
Humphries playing out of position at center giving the 8p/6r/1b in 20 mins we expected at age 29 or legit 7' with room to improve Zeller who averaged those numbers his first 2 seasons?
First year in the USA and quickly injured Faverani or healthy and hopefully adjusted (DUI aside) Faverani?
21-22 year old Sully off back surgery or 22-23 year old Sully with more experience and a better body?
22-23 year old Olynyk with his bad college body facing typical rookie adjustments or 23-24 year old Olynyk with a better body and the experience?
Nagging injuries Avery Bradley facing contract uncertainty (RFA) or confident, newly inked to the security of a 4 year deal Avery Bradley saying he is healthier than ever and the C's will 'surprise people'?
Unhappy Courtney Lee first half then gunner with terrible +/- numbers Bayless (who never played for a winner) 2nd half or Marcus Thornton, a much more consistent shooter than either of them, in a contract year?
Chris Johnson or Evan Turner?
Half a season of Jordan Crawford followed by undrafted rookie Pressy at backup PG or #6 overall pick built like a tank elite defense from day 1 albeit with questionable outside shooting marks Marcus Smart?
THAT my friends is the 10 man rotation I see us using.
You can argue over whether Bass, Wallace and Pressey will be better than last year, Pressey and Wallace should be since one was a rookie and the other injured. But I wouldn't have them in the rotation.
THAT team is going to stink up the joint and lose more games than last year to ensure a top 5 pick?
It isn't a team of Jeff Green's who willingly embrace the tank concept. Rondo and Stevens are two of the most driven competitive men in the NBA and Smart was like that in college.
Cs won 25 games last year... not 26.
Rondo took a 19-33 team and turned it into a 25-57 team, going 6-24 during his return to action.
As competitive/driven as you claim him to be, maybe he was "bored" during the last 30 games of the season. He was hardly inspired... or inspiring.
