    i don't know what you're trying to prove...........

    i am merely stating that it's common sense as to what's good for this team- the blending of skills, the meshing of the body types, etc.  it's not just shaq or JO as the starter, it's who works best with the bench unit players.  this team has a chance to have a really strong bench this year.  more so than in years past. 

    JON off the bench with davis is going to be a great skills match compared to shak and davis who are redundant in some areas and just not the best match.  And that's not even considering the most important thing- who is the best running mate for KG- clearly shak the massive clogger and banger!  i don't know why you can't see it.  other than the desire to quip cutely.  but it's still utter common sense.

    prove to me that you know that jermaine will double never super secret ever ever NOT be a starter for the C's.  shak wasn't even in the mix, hardly even remotely if he was, when JO signed.  if you think these older guys who "want to win one" aren't willing to adapt then you're underestimating things. 

    if i was JO, i would be more honored to finish out games with the nut cupping bunch then waste my minutes in the 1st or 3rd.  the guy does not have 30+ mins a night to give any more.

    Right now JO is the designated starter according to Doc and Ainge.

    yep.  oversimplistic perhaps.  naismith started the game with peach baskets but they figured out a better way.  the celts will also figure out a better way now that their 5 rotation is complete. 

    and there really is no reason to announce that decision to the public in advance, in fact it could possibly have scouting strategic advantage to stay mum since other teams may waste time preparing for jermaine in the starting 5.

    Would'nt that be a crazy shooting team with snaq, baby and rondo on the floor all at once. The Lakers could play Kobe on his own and say to them 'go on, shoot it guys' and pick up the clanks after the shot.

    Maybe there should be a poll as to who misses the most free throws this season:

    snaq or brick??!

    In Response to Re: Shaq as 6th man? : So what you're saying is it's a misdirection, that Shaq will start on Oct. 26 against the Heat?
    Posted by Fierce34


    one last time- not sure how else to say it- against the heat or whoever- shak is our best starter to mesh with / compliment kg.  JON is our best guy to mesh with the bench unit and then finish out games with steadier FT% and some proficiency inside & out.  against pretty much any team.

    do you think JON at this stage of his career is so focused on himself that he won't do what is right for the team?  he just went from close to max contract to MLE and would probably prefer to retire with a ring rather than retire as a proud self-mandated starter as a feather in his cap.

    do you think fans are too dum to figure out what's best for the team at the 5?

    i don't need the answers, just things for you to contemplate as an independent thinker.

    In Response to Re: Shaq as 6th man? : No matter what we think or say Doc is still the coach. It's either we accept what is reality or be in denial and keep posting about Shaq being the starter on this board. I just support the Celtics, I'm not into what's best for the Celtics. If Ainge and Doc thinks JO should start then so be it. Likewise with Shaq, whatever role Doc gives him I'm all for it.

    Perhaps donut carrier??

    Shaq the donut carrier is 10 times better than Theo Ratliff carrying anything.

    and this statement was made before shack was even remotely a part of the equation

    There's no doubt that Shaq will be a good mate but can he still run up and down the court on a nightly basis?  Back in Phoenix they wouldn't even let Shaq play in back to back games and he was only 36 years old back then.
    Posted by Fierce34


    here's another thought- shak plus rondo and the rest of the starting 5 means less running for shak when rondo is havoc making.  that makes shak's role pestering the lane on defense and when we go half court, setting man sized picks and such.

    Re: Shaq as 6th man?

    It doesn't really matter what we think, Doc is the coach.  It will work itself out.  My OPINION is that Shaq will start and play the first 5-6 mins of each quarter.  JON is an ideal 6th man, as he can play 2 positions, and, like McHale (not comparing him believe me), he will get more mins than the starters, in this case Shaq and KG.  I base my opinion on three things:
    1.  Doc will play whoever is the "hot" player, not caring who it is
    2.  Shaq has ONLY started in his career, even last year.
    3.  We CANNOT have him on the floor at the end of close games - JON is a lifetime .701 FT shooter, while Shaq is............not!

    And with the amount of rest KG, JON and Shaq will get, they will all get to start anyway!
