    Well, Oden is not mediocre! Actually he is the total opposite.

    Most likely he will never play for your team because he is always injured.
    That is not what I call mediocre!
    If there is a wonder he is going to be healthy and will be one of the best centers in the league (well, there is not much competition on this position).
    Also not really mediocre.

    This guy is just a major gamble.

    kind of like russell martin in baseball with the yanks. hurt for the last 3 seasons. at age 28, sox would not pass him on his physical, had reservations. yanks sign him and he's their best overall hitter this year and catching as good as ever. yep if he's 32 or over, i would worry. around 25, u roll the dice! one year deal or something like shaq deal. anyone else like a barnes who wants more than a 1 year deal, u just move in. only so many teams that can win rings and offer playing time. danny shoould be patient. i agree with thread poster not to overpay for average types. danny won't! btw, the clippers guy is a bad foul shooter but far from mediocre. could play the 4 or the 5.

    I am not sure that the Celtics can afford more than mediocrity.

    I am also not sure that the Celtics need more than mediocrity.

    They faced the Heat without a healthy Center, or a healthy point guard.

    When the big three retire, then, lets talk.

    the big 3's age mandates mediocrity.

    no teams in the past have remained relevant other than the '72 lakers with age.

    so then what you need is innovation on the rotations to keep the old people fresh.  enter doc rivers- assassin of ray allen by too many minutes year after year.  doc rivers, also master of distrust with anyone under the age of 30 on the roster- see handling of jeff green, von wafer, glen davis at various points in the last few years, most notably the blunderous handling of green (not enough), davis (too much), delonte (couldnt' get mins even after rondo's arm ripped out by the roots) and wafer (disappeared as we played ray more than ever).

    with doc here plus this aged 3 there is no chance for anything but possibly at best chance, mediocrity.

    Speaking of mediocrity, "aciemvp"s namesake is about as mediocre as it gets.

    Acie,
    I don't agree with you on this.  The Celtics will not be mediocre they will be a weaker team with a chance to rebuild around already known weaknesses. If they can find some players who can help the big 3 with significantly less minutes this team will still be relevant. Let's see what Ainge and Doc have in mind before we start thinking we will be irrelevant.  I could still see fifty wins next year.  That is not mediocre.  After seeing Rose and Westbrook the last couple of days I will take Rondo as he complements this team and it's other players.  He is many IQ points smarter.  Important with a point guard if you know what I mean.
