    Re: What do we do with Baby this summer?

    I think they will let Baby walk.  He will be looking for a payday and some team will overpay him and it won't be the C's.  He is an undersized PF with maturity issues not worth the deal he will likely be offered.

    Many posters on this board will complain (eg. Powe, Posey, T. Allen, Perkins, ANTOINE????) since they view our own players through "green colored glasses" while failing to see the business side of the matter.  Combine this with the fact that many posters are unfamiliar with the talent throughout the league and there becomes a distorted value of player worth so staggering that they still clamor for the return of said player even after career ending injury (Powe) or overall decline (Posey).

    In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : I don't know where you are getting this about his IQ... from all accounts he is a GREAT teammate who played out of position with no complaints, plays smart ball and is a very solid 3rd option with a sweet mid-range jumper. He was once a 38% 3 point shooter but is now down at 30... he needs to regain his stroke there and at the 3 and being a 4th option he very likely can. He is a natural SF and will be far superior talent wise to most of the 2nd unit players guarding him... how do you already feel the need to question his assertiveness in a role we have yet to see him in? Isn't it expected that he come off the bench and be asked to score buckets and play 'his' game? I think Danny feels he'll be a lot like Posey in '08 this year... then just be leaps and bounds better in the future. When he is playing with the first unit you want him to put his energy into defending while Pierce/Ray and KG are the first two options to score.

    I guess its possible to see KG, PP & Green  on the floor at the same time and maybe likely if we dont get another center.

    What nonsense! Everyone I have read says Green has a very high basketball IQ.  John Thompson his coach says he is the smartest player he ever coached.

    Regarding BBD I can't believe people don't see the unique value of Baby. He will be resigned, count on it.  

    This talk of Dwight Howard has little basis in fact as he has expressed interest in playing for the Lakers.  If he does not he will stay with the Magic.  

    Think about this talk of Howard coming here and point to evidence that exists that this is a possibilty.

    In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : He doesn't have a low bball IQ, so just admit you are wrong and move on. I have watched him play. Yes I remember him at G'Town almost as much as the 20 or so games i saw him in OKC. But still he is 24 and has the ability to play 2 positions, guard 3's very well. drop 20 a night, sweet mid-range J, explosive to the rim and still getting better. He is not Marvin Williams... he'll be like Xavier McDaniel, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Tom chambers, Cliff Robinson, Rashard Lewis... the type of smooth shooting forward who can defend 3's, create mismatches at the 4 and give you a 22-7 in their prime. If he is your 3rd best player you are a top 10 team. 4th best player top 3 team.

    Don't hold your breath........he may admit you are right.  He may admit someone else gave him bad intell, he may admit eveyone is a moron except him, but he will NEVER admit he was wrong.  You are dealing with a man who erroneously reported a deal between DEN and NJN was "consummated".  You're talking to a guy who doesn't want Green, Murphy, TMac, Posey or Battier.  He would rather the Celtics do nothing, limp into the playoffs and proceed just like last year.

    Next, he'll tell YOU you have a low BB IQ!!

    From what I heard on channel 5 news was that one of the reasons they didn't re-sign Perk was that he wanted too much money and they wanted to be able to re-sign Baby.  So Baby will re-sign so long as he doesn't want more than the Celtics are willing to pay.  They value Davis more than Perk, at least that's what the reporter said.

    Forgot to mention that Danny seems to value versatility and Perk and zero versatility.

    Glen Davis is a quality NBA player worth his price and a huge part of the Celtics this year.  Resign him.

    In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : Heddy, You also seem confused by the term consummate...here is the definition, so get your mind out of the gutter. con·sum·mate   (k n s -m t ) tr.v. con·sum·mat·ed , con·sum·mat·ing , con·sum·mates 1. a. To bring to completion or fruition; conclude: consummate a business transaction.

    Who am I talking to here?  Which one of your personalities?  I never quoted you as saying the Celtics limped against the Bulls etc.  I quoted you as saying they limped INTO the playoffs last year, then turned it on.

    Nice try, but I do know what consummate means - do YOU?
    "The Nuggets and Nets have "consummated" a deal for Carmelo Anthony.

    Say WHAT??  Last time I checked, he went to the KNICKS - how did the NETS consummate anything?

    Is this what you call going away?

    In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : Heddy, As I told you I dont work for the post. Just throwing out what they reported. I don't think the C's limped over the Bulls, Cavs or Magic and gave the Lakers everything they could handle for 7 games. Yes, I would take the exact same as last year.

    And I told you - I didn't invent any of the rumors, I just commented on them.........fail to see how that is ANY different than what you did!

    In Response to Re: What do we do with Baby this summer? : Evidence: 1. LA won't have the cap space. So only if they swap Bynum for Howard in a trade would that work. 2. The teammates the Celtics have to put around Howard will be FAR better than the Magic. He'd be in the LeBron situation. Magic are hopeless. A top 5 team in the East for 5 years with no shot at a title. Obviously the Magic could makes moves, but they'd prob be the type of lateral no major upside moves Cleve was making to try and keep LeBron. Arenas, Turk, Redick, Nelson, Duhon and Q Rich are all under contract for 2013 @ 51 million. Good luck with that trash heap. Compare that to Rondo, Green and Pierce w/ Ray and KG ready to come back on the cheap, Avery & a Clippers pick in the teens and possibly whatever we get for BBD sign & trade. Best evidence for Howard not being a possibility is if the CBA included an NFL like franchise tag

    lets not go over board here. Green is nice. He is the best player moved in the deal. But he does have a questionable shot and a low basketball IQ. He defered to his more accomplished team mates on OKC, but if he is running with the Celts 2nd unit, he needs to be more assertive on the offensive end. Green is good defensively, as a #3. As a #4 he has been over matched.

    Where'd you get this low basketball IQ idea.  The guy has tremendously high basketball IQ as noted by his coaches in both college and pro.  Green is a good overall player.  His only weakness is that he too often defers to others (not always aggressive enough).  But, he does the little things that others won't do.

    As for signing Baby, let's deal with that after the playoffs and after we see who's most valuable to the team.  Through 3/4 of the season, he is a top 3 candidate for 6th man of the year.  Stands in for PF and Center, makes critical plays (and did it last year and the year before).   The guy is not a pretty player, but very effective.

    If the Celts can't keep Baby this summer the fans would be saying, "I know what you did last summer." And if that's not enough and the Celts end up losing both Green and Baby then the fans would be saying, "I still know what you did last summer."

    HAHAHA!!!

    Re: What do we do with Baby this summer?

    celts are in great cap shape now with new cba coming up. if baby wants more than 5per or what perk was offered, i would rather pay green 8 per beyond next year and get someone else. so much easier to find a perk/baby type that a green! just go out there and bang for a rebound, play some defense.. offense is a luxury with our lineup now... what is shelden williams up to after this year? leon powe? remember how rhat debate used to be around here, baby or powe?
