    I agree. It'd be like the Bynum/Gasol duo---please no Laker fans insulting me as I didn't mean as good as I think they are, unfortunately for us and others,  the best tandem in the league-- but the problem is KG needs a rest frequently. If we had, say, Wicox, althought not the 6-11, 7 ft answer but a strong rebounder at 6-7/6-8, yup he could relieve KG !!!

    Id like to see Doc put Garnett back at the pf postition and start steimsma at center. It will help us in the long run come the playoffs.

    Steimsma has been playing pretty solid besides the stupid fouls and sloppy turnovers from making bad passing decisions. Two things that experience and confidence will help. The more playing, time the faster he will learn and the more reliable he will become for us as a big. All we need him to do is rebound solidly, and contest any shots around the basket without fouling, whether he gets the block or not just make a presence. Also take the open 15 footer whenever you have it.

    With that being said i think Doc needs to throw him in the fire and let him make mistakes and learn.

    like the idea

    like it better IF Steamer would be a lil more focused.

    although the refs have singled  him out for their foul stats

    Hard to play them together too much as Steimsma allows KG to play the  five minute intervals Doc likes.

    Thought crossed my mind tonight in Denver when we were getting clobbered on the boards and playing Bass at center that mabey just mabey Doc was brain dead, then later when we need size Steamer still rotted on the bench, don't know if we would have won, but we would have at least looked like a NBA team.  Paul and KG played their butts off tonight while the remainder of the team watched.

    Poor Doc's heart was in the gutter tonight after he learned that Duke got crushed in the first weekend of the tourney!!  Can't blame him as Celtics most likely won't make it to the first round of the play-offs.

    Start Steamer at center, KG at PF, BB at SF, PP at shooting guard and RR at point. Bring Ray off the bench. This lineup has more height and might grab more rebounds.

    The 6-foot-11 shot-rejection artist has made a place with the Celtics and endeared himself to his teammates with his work ethic and nature. And with the injury issues the club is facing, it is even more imperative that Stiemsma deal with his injuries and contribute. In just 10:42 a game, he is averaging 2.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks. But when adjusted to 48-minute averages, he’s third on the Celts in rebounding and first in blocks.

    for a while, stiemsma was third or fourth in the league in blocks.  but don't hold your breath waiting for doc to work him into the lineup.  unless, that is, if KG becomes totally worn out from trying to impersonate a 5 and gets injured, then Stiemsma will be given the minutes and it will be too late.

    KG is borderline dunk bait right now- people are not afraid of him.  steamer will get more blocks and is nice and young, who cares if he's spindly, he'll get in there and bang.  if doc will get his head out of his rear and let him
