In response to sycophant123's comment: Basically they dumped Rondo because they didn't want to pay to keep him and got what they could for a guy that is a rental for a few months. It is what it is. more »

Terrible deal for Boston. Just awful. Not one of those players are better than what we have now. And that 1st round draft pick is little better than a 2nd rounder. Danny Ainge just got chewed in the S more »

Kelly Olynyk's success as a 5 this preseason will pretty much dictate Faverani's fate.

The Rondo haters and the Boston Globe need to get a grip and come to a proper understanding of the market. Like it or not, Rondo is an elite PG and therefore a max player in this league. The Celtics n more »

I have very low expectations for Young this season. Who is he going to take minutes from? Green? Smart? Wallace? Bradley? All of them will play ahead of Young at the 2 or 3. And he missed ALL of Summe more »

I think DA had a fine plan to get Kevin Love, but he didn't expect LeBron to go back to the Cavs nor the domino effect that followed. I feel he would have found a way to outbid the Bulls. Just no way more »
Forum Post: High picks next year
Posted 08/13/2014 01:06:56 EDT
Aside from Rondo there is not one player on the roster who can impose his will on an opponent. Green's got the talent, but not the a-hle disposition KG demanded from him. Olynyk may develop into that more »

It's difficult to feel good about how this offseason has gone, with the exception of Marcus Smart and gaining an additional first rounder from the Cavs. The roster hasn't been appreciably improved, an more »
Forum Post: Smart has not looked that good

I think Marcus Smart is a rookie and rookies need time to figure the game out. But overall, I like what I see. They'll make a player out of him.

Forum Post: Celtics talking to cavs about #1

Nothing short of including Rondo would entice the Cavs to part with the #1 overall pick. I don't see it happening.

Forum Post: KG's MRI
Posted 03/26/2013 12:34:11 EDT
The last time DA said an injury wasnt serious and he expected only a few games to be missed was two years ago when Shaq went out and never came back.
The skeptic in me says: "We'll see about KG"
Forum Post: Terry vs. Ray
Posted 03/26/2013 12:30:08 EDT
Ray was a good Celtic. He just cannot defend anymore, and the C's make their living on D. That being said, I still wish he had stayed in Boston and finished up with us.

I too would be surprised if KG is dealt, but I never thought they'd deal Perk the way they did either. Again, I'm not much for conspiracy theories, but it was one year ago this week when DA dealt Perk more »
