    Why Celtics won't win 40 games!

    SmileNumber one reason Danny Ainge  worst GM in league. Refuses to draft international stars . Last years draft picks Moore and Johnson  waved by Rockets
    ,good evaluation Danny.
    2. Garnett ,Pierce,Terry old and on the downside of career. If Garnett goes down C's won't win 30 games.
    3.Wilcox and Green coming back after Aortic Valve Replacement, some doctors would never allow them to ever play basketball again. Danger of stroke 50% higher. Both players are taking blood thinners and should avoid physical contact as it could cause massive bleeding. Why would Ainge give Green 36 million over four years??
    4.Rookie  Melo at center ? give me a break Melo is a D league player at best.
    Will be out of league in 2 years tops.Scored 4 points a game in college against 6'-7" players.
    5. Backup center 36 year old bum Jason the brick layer Collins.
    6. Back up 3 man a second round pick.
    7. Bench could be the worst bench in the league, rookies and castoff's .
    Bass can't jump ,slow on defense,his backup Sullinger same MO slow can't jump and has a herniated disk in back.

    Boston got lucky last year as the season was shorter by 3 months and the young players around the league came back out of shape. Garnett and Pierce have zero chance of playing a 82 game schedule and play-offs without getting hurt.

    Ainge should have blown the team up and gotten something out of Allen,Pierce and Garnetts value. He chose to ride a dead horse .

    Happy SundaySmile

    Run, this is certainly your most ridiculous post.....the reason the Celtics won't win 40 games is because they will surpass that number by at least 10 wins....I know you are an "old timer" (so am I)....but you can't be serious regarding our bench...Terry was 6th Man of the Year during the Mav's championship year and is two years younger than Ray (with better all around skills)....Green and Lee bring athleticism and both have been starters....c'mon pal...DA is the worst....?

    I agree with this portion for sure. DA should have been bold and blown them up.

    If they stay healthy... and that's a HUGE caveat, they'll win 45 to 50 games. Otherwise... curtains.

    When the face of the franchise has yet to take a contested jumper in 6 seasons, it should give pause for concern about the future.

    But hey... his jersey sales are top 10.

    Well at least our misogynist, self-appointed Sheriff Spankygurl didn't pretend to take posters off of  IGNORE this time around in order to stalk and bully.

    Since you promised not to watch the C's this year I had high hopes that you would realize that you had nothing relevant to post here.      Today you have dashed my hopes in that regard ...   Happy Sunday?   It would be happier without your stupid comments polluting the scene.   please go away...   I have never put anyone on ignore....   not even the dopey Laker trolls...you just might push me over the edge.

    Re: Why Celtics won't win 40 games!

    While Ainge does seem to have an odd aversion to European players (sasha notwithstanding), Green's contract did seem like a it of a stretch given his health issues, and there is no doubt that the Celts are a little thin up front (probably one legit veteran big away), even these few reasonable criticisms (mixed in with the others) in no way add up to the celtics winning 40 games next year. As constituted they are a 50-plus win team and will be a top 3-4 seed in the east. 

    I'd contend that a full regular season would not have affected them any more than anyone else last year, and if did it was due directly to the loss of Jeff Gren and Chris Wilcox, players they were depending on to be part of their rotation. On average, the Heat (the 5th oldest) were almost the same age as the Celtics (the 3rd oldest) and they won a championship. The Celtics have also gotten significantly younger and went from the third oldest team to the tenth so that argument doesn't really hold up. Projecting the current 15 man roster, only Garnett, Pierce, Wilcox, Collins, and Terry are older veterans, a quantity that has proven absolutely essential in winning an NBA championship btw. 

    The statement 'if garnett gets hurt' simply cannot be used. The same can be said for any team in the league. take away blake griffin or chris paul from the clippers; take away lebron or wade form the heat; nowitzki from the mavs; durant or westbrook from okc and the same applies. Any basketball argument has to assume health of the players. You say they are depending on older players and they will break-down. Time will tell. Health is not something you can control - look at the Bulls and Derick Rose. Or take Brandon Roy. Or Greg Oden. Or Yao Ming. Age is certainly not the only factor in determining players health. 

    Celtics bench not even close to being worst in the league. Once Bradley is healthy, at worst middle of the pack, maybe much better than that. Not many teams can boast jeff green, chris wilcox, courtney Lee, and Jason terry as part of their second unit. 

    Jeff Green is the Celtics "back-up 3 man" not jospeh, who likely will not even be on the 12 man roster for the bulk of the season

    Jason Collins is a space filler, there to provide insurance, defend against bigger centers, and use up fouls. He is clearly capable of playing 5-10 minutes per night for a contending team. He started for a playoff team last year. 

    Wilcox is the back-up center. 

    if Melo is on the 12 man roster he will surely be at the very end of the bench.
