    Again, TA left, not a bad thing. Scal, GONE, again not a bad thing, you know how many posts there used to be flooding this board over outrage with keeping or signing players to bad contracts like TA and Scal? No more bad contracts to athletic white ameoba's and knucklehead Banana IV injecting morons. If you have to overpay for an end of bench player, then better to pass on the situation altogether.

       Tony Allen only had 2-3 MONTHS worth of good basketball his entire 6 year career in Boston. Seriously, if I was Ainge I wouldn't have given him much priority either.............and he didnt, he took care of PP,RA and Robinson,JO, even picked up MD fora cheap 1 year contract. Good moves overall(THough I wish he only signed Pierce for a 3/$45mil contract instead of 4.....). So we have a 2 year window to win still as I see it, and it can be extended if we draft smartly and sign good free agents for team/cap friendly deals. If they arent out there and stopgaps are needed, Id just add small inexpensive 1/2 year deals for stopgaps in the future.

    Like the ball, numbers dont lie:

    In six seasons, TA played in 336 games (of 492; not counting playoff games). That = 68%; I dont think that meets the definition of iron man.

    Again TA was often injured, a suspect jump shooter, a suspect ball handler, a suspect free throw shooter, a suspect passer, a suspect finisher at the rim, and to be fair an off of the charts defender.

    His defense will be missed. Best of luck in Memphis TA!

    Posey wanted four years.  After two, he is struggling in NO.  Tony Allen wanted 3.  I feel the FO feels Bradley can take his mins on defense, and he HAS to be as good on offense - if not better.  Good luck, to Tony oft-injured-we-gave-you-a-two-year-contract-after-you-were-injured-for-an-entire-year-and-this-is-how-you-thank-us Allen.  Hope you're not overshadowed by Rudy Gay and OJ Mayo.

    Personal aside - do you think USC will EVER let in another kid named OJ??

    Has Tony Allen seen Tony Allen play? This guy was probably the least polished player offensively on the entire team after Scal. I don't even know what to say. I'm speechless. San you say delusional?

    -

    "San you say delusional? "  No me san say it cause it not true. 

    Uh, duh, who's delusional?   I remember the year when Paul went down for 25 games and Tony was lighting it up from all over the floor for 20+ points a games before he tore his knee up in a freak accident.  He carried the team for a while.

    Those injuries ruined his career, but he re-invented himself as a defensive specialist.  No one here has been raving about his offense of late.

    We're upset because Danny screwed up and let him go, and he could have been a big contributor for the C's this season.

    He will flourish in Memphis.

    Is that all you got?  If that's all you got, why bother.

    A pathetic one liner? 

    If you're thinking of becoming a comedian, think twice.  If you're thinking of becoming a basketball commentator . . . well, good luck with that.

    Lol finding defensive players arent hard in this league and they just drafted a replacement for you Tony. I would honestly rather have Bradley a rookie with the ball in his hands than Tony.

    Tonys jumper is incredibly nasty and when he should be driving he doesnt.

    Is that so.

    Somehow I find that comment is so lacking in credibility as to be ludicrous.

    I guess that Tony haters come out at night to show how little they understand about team formation, chemistry, and dynamics.

    It's true, the value of "tough dudes like Satch & Posey" and by default, the much maligned, Tony Allen, cannot be measured by any stat. 

    There is no stat for toughness, just as there is no stat for "winner", for a guy like Rondo.  These type of guys transcend stats, just like a Battier transcends stats for a defender by his off the ball skill, anticipation, and instinctive defense, that is not instinctive at all, but just a skill that they have not learned how to quantify.

    Such are intangibles. 

    It is in fashion to put down the relevance of "intangibles" these days, but only by those who lack a full understanding of what goes on during an athlete contest.

    Rondo as a winner, Tony as a tough defender, hard to measure accurately, but the results often speak for themselves.

    I definitely agree with players being taken for granted.  Also, they never replaced Posey when he left.  Currently, they still haven't signed a replacement for TA.  I am not sure who they will sign since they really don't have the money they need to sign a good replacement for TA.  Without a decent bench next year, it will be more difficult for the Celtics to compete.
