In response to Fierce34's comment:
What will make every Celtic fan happy is Ainge making a trade to improve this team.
Right now this Celtic team is a playoff team whether we like it or not.
If the Celts had Jeff Green last season against Miami, I think the Celts would've been in the Finals. I mean come on, Jeff Green is way better than Pietrus.
Ainge just needs to find an upgrade over Bass. This Celts team will be very dangerous in the playoffs when KG will be playing 36 minutes per game. That's 36 minutes of great D. KG just needs another complementary big who can rebound, block shots, and score inside the paint.
Fierce...I agree with you that with one other BIG Man to play with KG, we could beat Miami !!!
What happened to conversations with Oden? Too bad Sully went down as he was a good rebounder but still a PF & not a dominant center. I don't wish an injury on anyone but at least the Pau Gasol talks of maybe coming to the "Cs" are over. I say play Melo. Coming to mind I believe many of the following centers were major contributors in their rookie seasons(some too played PF):
Wilt, Alcindor, Elvin Hayes, Wes Unseld, Tim Duncan, Dave Robinson, Shaq and could be more but that's all I can think about now. Did Bill Russell make a strong contribution in his rookie year...dunno ?
