In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"We already messed up by insulting Ray Allen"
Umm asking Ray Allen to come off the bench because we needed his spark and leadership there and he could not play D anymore so we needed Bradley as a starter was not an insult.
Ray was a great Celtic but he was a prima donna. If family was the most important thing to him (Celtics family) he would have stayed.
Tell me, do you leave your "family" because of a perceived slight or two? No, you stick it out.
Ray went and selfishly pursued where he could have the best chance to win. I won't hold that against Paul or Kevin if they want to do the same, just like I don't hold it against Ray. Just don't make him a hero or a martyr.. He did what he needed to do. Alternately, if the Celts feel the need to move on that's fair game to.
Stop it with the family BS, it's a business. KG and Paul understand that and have said as much, time for you to understand it too. Either way their jerseys will go up in the rafters and there will be no hard feelings.
Free agents won't hold that against the Celtics. They will hold against the Celtics the crummy winters and lack of the kind of appealing NBA city that LA or Miami is. If we get a new coach they might hold that against us too, depends on who it is. Guys like playing for Doc and he is a major draw, despite what some of the haters want to believe here....
Just because guys like playing for Doc necessarily does not make him perhaps the best fit for Boston anymore. He looks burnt out.
Where is this coming from that guys like playing for Doc? Was it Leon Powe or Darko or Krystic or Nate or Marquis or BBD et al??? Oh, you mean the mega contract guys like KG, PP & Rondo.. where they do as they please while Doc fetches their slippers and coffee in the morning
I loved my 5th grade teacher... in retrospect I now realize he wasnt a very good teacher, but he let us goof around and made tests easy and laughed with us.
So since DA made the blockbuster deals in 2007, where have all the great players been hiding who are dying to play for Doc? or even before the 2007 trades, where were they hiding? In other words, wheres your evidence?
Now immediately get to your keyboard and click your macro for your "hater" line
