    Save KG for what? Four games and out in the playoffs!

    Doc said that KG would have played if it was the playoffs.  Instead, he is not going to play him until the playoffs.  What's the point?  We've been losing with him in the lineup anyway.  Rest KG, lose the remaining regular season games and then lose in the first round of the playoffs.  What a pathetic season for the Celtics.

    If we do drop and have to face Miami in the first round I have a feeling Lebron won't have much sympathy for us, put a shoe on our neck, and try to sweep the C's to put the past in the past.

    Fortunately for the Celts the Sixers & Bynum are a joke this year and the Bucks can't seem to get it together either, so they weren't forced to make any deals. But I wonder if the C's FO would've done anything different at the trading deadline if those teams had suddenly gotten hot a month or two ago?

    If KG is out for any significant time we definitely could end up the 8th seed.  You may be right and the Celtics could get swept by Miami.   We still have games against Atlanta, NY, Brooklyn, Miami, and Indiana.  Without KG we could lose all of these games.  All of the additional games that we play for the remainder of the season also won't be easy to win without KG in the lineup.

    Injuries happen.

    The league has determined that Miami will be the champ, and the Lakers must be in the playoffs, so the refs will give Kobe 20 free throws a night, and Lebron gets 3 steps anytime he makes a move.



    Why watch if you think it is fixed? The Lakers won't make the playoffs btw.

    And which Laker troll are you?  How's that 73-win season going for you?

     If you have players that play limited minutes because of age and save them for certain times it is sad to players who can play. C's time to move on and get players who can play the game without restrictions. If you have restrictions you should be coming of the bench. It is what is. We have enough young talent. KG and PP need to accept a bench role or move on. Doc stop cheating father time with certain minutes some one plays as a starter. It does not work and will never work Doc lesson learned. The C's made a good run, but this season is coming to a end. Playoffs your talking playoffs if so it will be ugly. The future does look good with JS, JG, AB, RR and JC. Get a free agent this summer or do what ever it takes to get a big. The transition from KG and PP should not be to bad. Can start to see the writing on the wall for this current team.

    Maybe we need to finish 8th and get crushed by the Heat for Ainge to finally blow this team up and seriously begin the rebuilding.

    technically, the person who opened this thread is correct.  at this point, "save KG for what?" is a valid question.  we over-used his physicality ALL of last year and now ALL of this year until he wore out like a shoe.

     

    right now we are saving KG from more serious injury.  beyond that, there's no future for this team in the playoffs.  danny did a great job landing some PG help.  avery bradley is not a PG and it really really shows.  not even sure if bradley will be the same player he was emerging into being after having 3 shoulder surgeries- that could really throw off the touch of someone's shot....
