    Want to feel Better about our Celtics? Read this!

    I'm trying to feel better.  So, let's have a thread about what's right with the Celtics.  What can they build on?

    1. Sully's rebounding

    2. Bradley's hustle and defense

    3. Fab Melo may one day be DeAndre Jordan

    4. hmmmm.....HELP!  Please, Help!

    Green is too limited of a player to be full time...not starter material..




    Sounds good to me.

     

    But I still would like to see KG, Sullinger, Pierce, Green, and Rondo.

    Be careful of what you ask for.  We could be the Celtics of the pre-Garnett and pre-Allen.  We had lots of youth and were rebuilding and I don't remember ANYONE on this Board happy at that point.

    Allen is gone, KG is a shell of his self, Pierce is on his last legs, and "dead Eye" Rondo is not capable of being anything but a good player!!  What would you suggest we do?

    It is a matter of adjusting expectations. We may not be contenders for a while, it depends what decisions are made by Ainge (assuming he'll still be making the decisions). Reaching the playoffs and hoping for a couple of surprises may be the goal. I still remember the 2002 (I think) conference finals against the Nets. That was cool, even though they didn't win.

    There are no easy answers or they would have implemented them by now.  I would keep Doc, I would let the string play out this year, let KG retire next year, ask Paul if he wants to be traded to a contender as a bench player or play one last year as a C, and try to use money left at that point to bring in a star player.    But, I would never give up trying to build a contender.  As GM, I'd owe it to the fans and I would remember how bad it is and how long it takes to go to the bottom of the league and try to come back.

    While I don't think we can build around Rondo as if he's the Center piece, I would try to get 2 great pieces where Rondo can complement them.  Terry, Bass, Wilcox, likely Green would be gone for whatever I can get for them.

    I would love Larry back, but I don't think that can happen.  They passed him over and he will never forgive them.  Also I think he has some health issues.

    I hope it happens. Cs need fresh ideas and need to rid themselves of the enigma that is Rondo
