This coach not different

    This coach is ok

    He says the right things, but Bradley and  Green will start no matter what.  Bass, Wallace, and Hump will get big minutes no matter what.  Our best big will rot on the bench just like Randall did last year.  KO will get scattered token minutes and will not be able to get a good rythum going.  Lee and Bradley who shot 6 for 26 last night and will still be considered top guys. Pressey is wasting his time.   Some guys will be released who are better than the ones we keep.  If Danny would let the guy coach, you would see a better product on the court.

    Bradley and green should start unless they do something that requires discipline.

    So we are going to blame every coaches performance on Ainge?

    I bet Oly gets over 25min per game.  Sully deserves more but is a long way from being in that kind of shape.  I think you'll be surprised MG.

    I think four games into the exhibition season with a new to the NBA coach is way too early to form judgments.

    In spite of not playing even one regular season game yet, and proven starters getting initial priority over newbies...

    and of course Danny and Stevens aren't at all thinking about showcasing certain players before the December trade deadline... Duh.

    I'm sure Stevens is a lifelong b-ball fan, and has watched a lot of NBA games in his lifetime, but for the last decade I'm sure 90% of the games he's watched have been college, for the purpose of preparing his teams -- so as part of his re-adjustment he needs to see what his pros can do in person before he starts bringing along the rookies.  Give it time.  First you have to establish your starting lineup.

    The guys they got from the trade will be showcased..period...the ones not playing will eventually be dumped as soon as they can be dumped financially as their contracts demand...this coach has security so he doesn't ever have to work again  if he chooses and has a bright lawyer wife to make sure it's all well invested and the contract is solid...But he's young and DA knew whoever came here was going to have a tough time for at least 3-5 years...if you really think these guys are getting back in the race anytime soon then you need to stop smokin' the chronic...the young guys will be given time to grow, blossom and meld together, but this process will take a few years as new, young and more talented pieces are added from year to year....they will not do anything other than this, and the occassional trade that DA loves to make, bundling assets for the one or two great players to build around and some FA's that will be willing to come here after that...

    DA never promised to have a title ready team any time soon, did he?!

    Bradley shot a blistering 2 for 13 and comes back tonight and shoots a blisteing 4 for 12,  he has other good qualities but he should earn his starting position, at this time two guys are playing better than he is but he will continue to start,  just say I was hopingl this coach would look at merit but it does not appear that he does.  I know there are other things to consider and I hope he proves me wrong, but it looks like he is just another NBA coach.

    All I can say is the Doc haters would be very quiet once the Clippers make the Finals under Doc Rivers.

    [/QUOTE]

    I think if Doc Rivers doesn't take the Clippers to the NBA Finals this season, then he will walk in the 3rd year of the deal and possibly might even walk after 1 yr......

    The Clippers are going to be a lot of fun to watch and I hope they do make the NBA Finals.....but it is just as likely they don't make it out of the first round.....the West has some stout teams - San Antonio will be back better than ever, OKC is right there, Memphis is a legit threat to win it all, Houston (hate !) cannot be overlooked, and Golden State will be even better...then there's the full strength Minnesota TWolves who (if healthy) I really can't wait to see - with K Love healthy and Ricky Rubio finally showing what he can really do as the QB of a team with legit weapons (last chance for that guy they drafted #2 or whatever it was).....

     

    But back to the original point of the original post by MarynGary:

    You say Brad Stevens is a punk and a puppet and he's going to let Ainge pick his rotation ?  Are you crazy ? Ainge would never do anything that stupid...stupid he is not. If anything K.O. & Hombre Indestructible will be pushed to play as many minutes as they can handle. 

    The preseason has not yet revealed the rotation, and it'd good news that Courtney Lee is in the converation because let's remember, it was Doc Rivers who buried Courtney Lee , not Brad Stevens...

     


    Brad Stevens is a smart guy.....can we wait until he at least sets the rotation before we start complaining ???

    OK now that that's settled, if he plays the vets max minutes as a showcase, than packages Bradley, Wallace and some other player for a first round pick or a vet who wants off another team, it will only be a good thing.  

    We had to move Pierce and KG because we were going nowhere, there are still moves left to be made...

    Re: This coach not different

    why not keep our young guys and just try to draft the centerpiece?  I don't think we'll get more than value for someone like bradley.  Once we pick up more scoring he can go back to being a defensive specialist who can hit threes when unguarded.

    The Spurs have the only real coach in the NBA that does not let his players dictate to him.  Study him Brad.

    You have absolutely NO IDEA how players are performing in practice and who is earning play time as a result.  Take a chill pill.  This is going to be a long season with plenty of changes.

    Clippers had undeachieved last two years, Doc is very good with established vets, to say he did not do so good with Randall last year is just a fact.  Just because a poster does not agree with all a coach does , to me , does not make him a hater.  Doc dissapointed me with the way he uses some guys that I thought could have helped us.  But Doc did a good job once be got Kevin and Ray, not so great before but ok.  Stevens, I thought was looking for our best players by merit but it is becomming plain that he is going to play the vets and I understand that he has reason to do so.  KO and the insestsrutable man do just about as good as the vets do, and to me they should play and get the experience needed, but they most likely will have reduced minutes while we try to sell off the vets.  I understand why, but lately I have cabin fever and may not recover in time to see another good Celtic team, you see I am 71 and just as crazy as I was when I was 21.

    You are right , I have not been at practice, but I have watched Bradley for three years, and he had one spurt where he looked like a top NBA player, the guy can defend, but had his problems defending in the New York Series, and over all for three years he has poor shooting performance, After watching him three years and seeing him shoot us out of the last two games that we should have won, I fail to see how he will start over some of the guys we have.  I am not that excited about any of 2 that we have.  If Mr. Bradley would limit his shots, especially when he is shooting aroung 20 per cent, it would make sense to me.  Get out best shooters their best shots and at this time I do not consider him one of our best shooters at all.  Just because I have an opinon backed by watching the guy for three years does not qualify for a chill pill.  I am 71 and have been a fan since I was 15.  I listened to Russell destroy the Russians on the Radio.  I coached for 41 years.  Lee and Bradley do not shoot the ball well enough to be the leading shot takers during a game.  I don't know where I got that Idea from, I do not go to practice.  Stating an ovious fact does not leat to a chill pill.

    Your post makes complete sense, I just would like KO and Indesructable man to get major minutes so that they can develop, I undrstand what you say and I agree you are right, just grates me to watch upside sit on the bench.  sorry
