    Re: Why Celtics won't win 40 games!

    run is a racist and an ignorant idiot as well

    Ainge brought in Raef LaFrentz over Antoine, Juri Welsch over Delk, drafted Semih Erdan, traded Ricky Davis for Wally, Battie for Chris Mihm, signed Scal, signed Dan Dickau, drafted in Harnagody, traded Perk for Krstic, brought in Arroyo, Troy Murphy, just drafted TWO international players (who just happen to be the wrong color for our KKK member run)

    What do all those moves have in common? The players simply weren't that good, Danny is always trying to make the team better.

    The best players happen to be African American, its a fact of the sport, get over it, Danny has made a great roster, there haven't been opportunities to simply force players onto the roster b/c of their ethnicity or color.

    You can use hindsight is 20-20 glasses to do most anything you want, but believe me Danny's moves have NOTHING to do with race and the C's style of play was made to accomodate three HOFers and brought us a title...

    run the racist KKK sack of cr@p is out to lunch as always....

    [QUOTE]hahahahahahahhaha Run the ignorant hateful racist posts some of the worst garbage ever seen Celts will get at least 50 wins...outside shot at 60
    Posted by rameakap[/QUOTE]

    the number of wins is nearly meaningless.  it's can you deal with chicago and then miami?  i don't think we can deal with chicago because all we have at the 5 is KG and question marks.  and we already know bass will poope himself in the playoffs playing extensive 4 minutes.

    the problem is rebounding.  for this team to go deep into the playoffs (looking beyond the typical shallow rama drivel), we need rebounding from our bigs.  and we don't have bigs, we have rookies, sullinger and melo.  jason collins is a 6 minute a game guy.

    so that means we need green and bass to OVER achieve on the rebounds and we need our backcourt to gang rebound ferociously too, just for us to be mediocre at rebounding.  and when you clench your backcourt in to do all-in rebounding because the team stinks at rebounding, then it's harder to run, which is the other thing this team needs to do more of than we've seen the celts do in YEARS.

    and you can't run without being able to rebound at at least  middle of the road level.....

    i like what ainge did for the 1-2 positions for this year and then everything else is just a gamble.  including jeff green, wilcox, sullinger, melo.  collins stinks so he's not a gamble. 

    how this team could be thought of as better than last year's team is really beyond me.  green coming off of heart surgery is suddenly going to drastically increase his per minute rebounding?  BASS, whose per minute rebounding has been declining for Y E A R S now, is going to suddenly stop that trend and beyond that reverse it and actually rebound decently for us?  and that's beyond the issues he has with individual and team defense that need work....

    we might well win 50 games.  and they might well be meaningless games.  our lack of frontcourt talent is what's going to do us in.  and again i go back to the simple fact that if garnett has signed for 1-3 million, like SHAK DID, then we'd have had the extra money to pursue a BADLY NEEDED Ilyasova or Humphries type.  Or even an omer asik type- a body that you know can board and swat- doesn't even have to be fancy or 9 million bucks worth of player. 

    kg closing in on what 1300 or more games?  and he's all we have to wipe the glass in the playoffs.  not going to get by chicago with that.  add in humphries or similar 10 board a night threat and we could have had a decent chance.

    it's beyond you? Gone from the playoff team  are Allen, Hollins, Moore, JJ, Steamer, Pavlocic, Daniels.

    Now here is a healthy Bradley,  Terry, Green, Lee, Wilcox, And Sullinger, and Collins.

    I would say that Bradley, Terry and Lee trump Allen, Moore pavlovic and Daniels.  Right?

    and wouldn't you say that Green, Wilcox, Sullinger and Collins tops JJ, Hollins and Moore?  You would right?

    So why do you get so confused about if this team is better?  You a big fan of Hollins, JJ, Moore and Daniels?

    Actually you are making it up.  Of course in Rondo's career he has taken a contesed jumper.  

    Ever see this game?  in the first 1:30 of the vid he hits three contested.  Later on he hits on with Haslem in his face.  Why do you purposefully make yourself look so foolish by using such hyperbole?  "Rondo has never taken a contested jumper".  Wow.

    My dear friend, the Lakers did not sign him for 36 mil over 4 years. I believe it was a two year deal at 1 mil which was voided and never payed him more than 1 mil per year. I'm saying Celtics taking a lot more risk with this contract, but risk is what it is all about. He may turn out to be worth every penny. Enjoy!

    "Enjoy!" doesn't work.  It has no effect whatsoever.

    Maybe we could brainstorm this.  Lets see Bynum does "thanks for playing" so you can't use that.

    What about "Would you like some Pie"!  Or maybe "Have a good one!

    Maybe "Don't let your meatloaf"!

    Send me a message.  We can figure something out.  I hate to see you keep embarrassing yourself with "enjoy!"

    I think he was meaning to say that Rajon Rondo cannot hit a jumper over 5 feet on a consistent basis and there is no way on earth that he will ever be trusted to take a game winning shot outside of 5 feet. Heck, a couple of years ago, I saw Rondo with a basketball out on the beach and he couldn't make it into the ocean. Laughing

    snakes- you can plug in great stuff in the 1-2 position and still have no front line strength/depth, no "sure bets" for bigs- with two of the marquee guys being aortic valve replacements and be NO BETTER than last year.  it's easy.

    beyond that, bradley is NOT going to be healthy this year as you assume.  he's going to miss about half the year.  both shoulders went under the knife.  that's not insignificant.  this guy was just coming into his own after being a below average shooter.  it will likely take him some work and time to get the shooting touch back, the slashing should come naturally.  but what i'm saying is that you have a guy who is going to take TIME to reach the level of promising player you saw last year.  he may not even hit stride until the playoffs. 

    so the pickup of jason terry is great to make up for that.  why we have loaded up on good small talent and NO BIG TALENT (that is not a huge risk- aortic valve surgery, don't ya know) is illustrative of the type of dingbat that ainge is. 

    and it has nothing to do with race.  wilcox was a splintery guy who was only going to be something if he could run the daylights out of the other team.  can he do that any more?  we don't know.  green- he was showing promising moments of versatility, yet below average rebounding and defense, now off of heart surgery = ?.  WHY did we have to bring bass back?  he showed his true colors in the playoffs = stinko.  he did it to himself too, it's not like teams were focusing on him. 

    so as you can see, this team has nothing new in the front court that is a certainty other than the fact jason collins will show up an take a 3X shirt and be fat and slow.  maybe a good 6 fouls against bynum, howard, duncan types and that's it.

    You are right in theory, there are a lot of questions marks.  I was just taking issue with your comment relating to how the Celtics wouldn't be better.

    The Celtics bench at the end of last year was so horrific that I can't see how this team wont be improved.

    Hi Soups

    You must have a short memory, International stars won the World Games 2006 and Olympic games in 2004.

     This year little Argentina lost by only 4 points to the  US team. Argentina is as big as Florida.

    Watch out Spain, Argentina, Greece or Russia may beat the US team this year.

    Take care Run

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Why Celtics won't win 40 games! : snakes- you can plug in great stuff in the 1-2 position and still have no front line strength/depth, no "sure bets" for bigs- with two of the marquee guys being aortic valve replacements and be NO BETTER than last year.  it's easy. beyond that, bradley is NOT going to be healthy this year as you assume.  he's going to miss about half the year.  both shoulders went under the knife.  that's not insignificant.  this guy was just coming into his own after being a below average shooter.  it will likely take him some work and time to get the shooting touch back, the slashing should come naturally.  but what i'm saying is that you have a guy who is going to take TIME to reach the level of promising player you saw last year.  he may not even hit stride until the playoffs.  so the pickup of jason terry is great to make up for that.  why we have loaded up on good small talent and NO BIG TALENT (that is not a huge risk- aortic valve surgery, don't ya know) is illustrative of the type of dingbat that ainge is.  and it has nothing to do with race.  wilcox was a splintery guy who was only going to be something if he could run the daylights out of the other team.  can he do that any more?  we don't know.  green- he was showing promising moments of versatility, yet below average rebounding and defense, now off of heart surgery = ?.  WHY did we have to bring bass back?  he showed his true colors in the playoffs = stinko.  he did it to himself too, it's not like teams were focusing on him.  so as you can see, this team has nothing new in the front court that is a certainty other than the fact jason collins will show up an take a 3X shirt and be fat and slow.  maybe a good 6 fouls against bynum, howard, duncan types and that's it.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Why Celtics won't win 40 games! : Hi Soups You must have a short memory, International stars won the World Games 2006 and Olympic games in 2004.  This year little Argentina lost by only 4 points to the  US team. Argentina is as big as Florida. Watch out Spain, Argentina, Greece or Russia may beat the US team this year. Take care Run

    Argentina is 16 times the size of Florida.
