    This team, maybe most teams, can't play 3 gamesin 4 nights and maintain quality. REmember how Denver died at the Garden the other night? Glen Davis is playing helacious minutes, as is Ray Allen and ot more »

    POINT GUARDS ARE A SPECIAL BREED. Even a lifetime ago you could see the difference. Our team had a guy who rarely shot but could follow his teammates cus and moves without seeming to move his eyes at more »

    I think the imminent return of Perk will turn things around. He'll be screaming on D and that will energize everyone. KG will have his back covered to play like he likes to, Delonte will replace Robin more »

    Any time I waste my time looking at the +/_ column in the box score I wonder who invented it and why its there. Its an insult to fans and worse to players, who might be judge on the basis of that wier more »

    Posted 12/29/2010 12:30:56 EST

    Does anyone question whether PP is having an MVP year? This is a guy who lives on scoring. But when Doc mentions the need for more rebounding there is is rebounding. When Rondo comes down injured ther more »

    Maybe fan B4Orr should stick with hockey. Shaq can't keep up with a guy almost his clone who's 12 years younger. But he's still a monster vs most other centers and he did get Howard into foul trouble more »

    There's such big dif between being PG and SG. Sad part is, Rondo's passes make the Cs formidable and not everybody- infact very few players can be playmakers. As I watche d the game there were clearly more »

    In Response to We lost because Shaq fouled out:

    Shaq is the key to this team. Without him we don't win. Just like Perkins in the Finals last year.

    For all the quantity and quality on paper, the Cs are hurting up front. Shaq can't keep plaing 25-30 min. per game. Jermaine , as always , is injured much of the time. Ermih, who has a great future wi more »

  • Posted 11/14/2010 10:03:32 EST

    This is an improved team over last year. Center aside for the moment the first 6 look more fit, stronger , and the younger ones- Rondo and Davis- are definitely improved. I think Semih will be a keepe more »

  • Posted 11/13/2010 09:50:07 EST

    This team is so deep, they even field 3 guys 7' plus KG, Perk and Davis. We won't see much of Shaq, who will nurse himself along until the playoffs. Jermaine has been plagued with injuries throughout more »

    I think Rondo has added 10 pounds of muscle to last year's weight. He's a fraction slower as a result but has more of an NBA body and more power for his perimeter shots. I don't think there's a more e more »

    Best or not, he is one of the most exciting players in the NBA. When all is said and done, pro sports is entertainment and there are few better than him in any category of entertainment. more »

    Two years from now the rotation could look like Perk, Harangody,Rondo, Bradley, West, Davis, and one or two of the new longs Ainge has brought in. Most players take 2-3 years in the NBA to develop. So more »

    Some day I would like to read Perk's whole story. I have nothing but respect for him. Ainge may have been twitting him but it was a nasty jab. Perk has come back from foot problems, shoulder problems, more »

    Just had another thought. West and Shaq played together last season. I wonder if they will team up (maybe Shaq whispered in Doc's ear?) when they are on the floor tofether of the bench? It could have more »

    There is no question about Delonte's skills. He also had to get over losing his position to Rondo. I'm sure he's delighted to be back with the Cs, for however long it lasts. I was impressed with how h more »
