    In response to Kirk6's comment:

    KG, Bass, Pierce, Green, and Rondo.



    I have been thinking about this lineup.  My concern is that we will become too stagnant on offense.  There are not enough ball handlers on the floor to create a smooth offense.

    Rameakap,

    Good to see you around, this place is quiet and troll infested.  Anderson Varajeo went for 35 and 18 the other night in a loss.  What would it take to get him?  You have touched on a real valid point about Pierce.  He is hurting the team often when he scores but shoots poorly and turns the ball over. I wonder if Doc would use him as sixth man, as you say he would be more effective not less that way.

    Varajeo would be great fit.  Don't  see us getting  him  tho.  Cleveland's rebuilding so they would probabley ask for young players and  picks.  AB & Green.  No  way.

    I'm still advocating that the starters be Rondo, Barbosa, PP, Green and KG

    Re: Who should start?

    Rondo - Lee - Pierce - Sully - KG

     

     

    Bench scoring has been a problem for two years

    Barbosa - Terry - Green - Bass - Wilcox will score over the course of the season.  Let Lee and Sully get established, then come in with the scorers...........set the tone on D first!!

    Re: Who should start?

    We still need to have a balanced team...both offensively and defensively..That was the problems early on..Thats why Doc turned to Terry...but I say let it play out a little longer and the right combinations will flourish..Green needs to establish more of a consistant track record before he can start. Pierce doe a lot more than just score. He is a decent ball handler (?) and passer, but I realized he has been turning the ball over more often than ever. I thin Doc just needs to get him his shots in certain situations. He cannot create like he used to and needs to adjust his game and look to pass more often than try to be the hero.

    Re: Who should start?

    The starters should be Rondo, Terry, Pierce, Bass and KG.

    We got abused on the boards by the 5th best rebounding team in the NBA.  Not only that, Utah may very well have the deepest and most talented group of front court players in the NBA and they showed why.

    We definitely need to significantly improve in the area of rebounding but last night's total board domination is not something that will happen with any sort of frequency.

    In terms of team rebounding rankings, Miami, NY Knicks, Clippers, SA and Atlanta are pulling up the rear with us.  Those may very well be the teams the Celtics will need to be geared to beat come playoff time.

    I'd love us to go out and get someone who can grab 10 rebounds in the same way Rondo wakes up with 10 assists but we'll have to wait to see if that can happen.

    I think as the season progresses, with more team continuity, you'll see our athletic players focus more on rebounding which will result in better team rebounding.

    Re: Who should start?

    I think Doc is mad with this traditional line-up. We should start with a Trees lineup:

    1. Rondo

    2. Sullinger

    3. Wilcox

    4. KG

    5. Darko

     

    And then move to a Threes lineup:

    1. Barbosa

    2. Terry

    3. Lee

    4. Pierce

    5. Green

     

    (of course the biggest joke is that Lee is included in the threes lineup as I believe our Centeres have hit more than he has so far this season)

    Re: Who should start?

    Or maybe something like this

    1. Either Rondo or Barbosa

    2. Either Lee or Terry

    3. Either Paul or Green

    4. Either Bass, Sullinger, or Wilcox

    5. Either KG, Darko, or like maybe a Collins

     

    I think something like this could really make an impact as our starting lineup.

    Re: Who should start?

    Why change the starting lineup?  We've won 3 in a row and 4 of our last 5.  We have to give these guys time to gel.

    Why start bench guys when they are effective in their roles off the bench?  I love it when Green, Sully and Barbosa come off the bench and go against other team's second units.

    Bass had a not-so-good night but he wasn't the only one.  With Bass playing PF last year, we were one quarter from getting to the NBA Finals.  And he has played well so far this season.

    Terry is going to have more efficient games than the "one-shot" dud he played last night.  In spite of two starters (Terry and Bass) not having great games and another being injured (Rondo), we won the game.  That would not have happened last year.  The only way we do that is by having the players on the bench that we have.

    Getting throttled on the boards should not cause a knee-jerk reaction to re-do the starting lineup again.  We won the basketball game.

    Re: Who should start?

    Against the Lakers: Rondo, Pierce, Green, Wilcox, KG (Wilcox covers Howard, and Kobe has to cover Pierce)

    Against the Heat: Rondo, Lee, Pierce, Green, KG (Lee gets Wade, and Green gets LeBron)

    Re: Who should start?

    I like Sully to start. I like Bass to finish

    As far as PP, as much as I love him and have defended him over the years I agree he have to think about moving over for Green and allowing him to flourish. Here me out.

    I have been PP's biggest supporter since day 1. Met him rookie year, we kicked it downtown. Cool Dude. My thing with him is, he isnt that consistent anymore. He is still a knockdown shooter with a killer instinct. I still want him taking the last shot(for now) but his athleticism is there some nights and others not so much. We have a young Gazelle in Green who is ahtletic, fast and explosive but doesnt get the minutes necessary every night to be consistent nor does he get many plays called for him as he sits outside the 3. I do like them to play together with PP at the 2 because he is savvy enough and as we saw last night w/Foye he can abuse those guys on the block. Green can abuse 3's but not 4s. So let Bass, Sully, Wilcox, KG, etc man the 4 and 5 spots and keep Jeff at 3 where he can dominate(also switching back from 3 n 4 defensively is very hard and why he struggles on defense IMO(his own words)

     

    I want  Leandro to end the game intead of Rondo too(gulp)  Ok, let me have it!

    I wanted him this offseason as I thought he was in the doghouse but if he keeps this up, his price will be high. I always thought he was a perfect fit the way he hussles and if you pair him with KG, thats a nightmare for anyone as Varajeo was one of the few that got under KGs skin so them together would be Huge IMO and most likely put us over the hump in the east with his ability to protect the basket vs the Heat. he knows L.J. well too..May have some dirt on em...lol

    Varajeo for a price we can afford and reasonably good health for the team would mean a title. I firmly believe it.
