"I've never been scared of contact. Now I get to bring it, that's what I love to do, so I'm going to bring it."
GET OFF YOUR HEELS BILL !!!
I wonder if there's a way we can acquire Dalembert. He didn't even get on the floor last night but he's a premier rebounder and shotblocker, and isn't fighting father time yet (31) He makes just under 7 mil.
I really want to give K-Mart a chance because he seems very hungry to prove himself, but I just can't see someone who's always been an average rebounder become our savior.
I think K-Mart can be a Bass with more passion, so I'd still be down to bring him in. Cut Collins too.
Milwaukee has a lot of interesting trade pieces off their bench. Moute, Dally, Udoh, Dunleavy, etc. all guys I'd love to see on our team
Martin brings an attitude that Bass, Sully. et al have not displayed.
If they waived him/bought out his contract than that is a different story. If he was a free agent and we coudl get him this year for minimum I'd say do it.
Joakim Noah is the guy I would like to see in Boston. Yeah, I know, not very feasible. And I hate him when the Celtics play against him, but that's kinda the point. He willingly does the dirty work and loves getting in peoples heads while doing so.
I posted this is the "Rondo Suspended" thread but as I speculate a bit about personnel I thought I would post it here as well.
One of the positives to come of this might be Doc learning to trust other players more. Lee certainly got more minutes and showed improved play in facets of the game. It also forced Terry to rediscover his passing ability. I had hoped Barbosa would get more of an extended run than he did.
I hate that it sometimes takes the unavailability of a player for Doc to give guys a go.
Makes me wonder what impact Pierce missing a game of two might have on Green.
It also makes me realize that KG missing a game or two... well, they have pinned their hopes on Melo's development. In this context, it is easier to understand why they have not signed someone like Martin- they need to find a legitimate 6'11"+ guy. Collins has shown he ... well, he does what he does which likely is nowhere near enough. I'm not convinced a free agent or bought out guy will suffice. I'm expecting a trade.
my initial reaction about our green signing was not good, i was encouraged by his pre season and thought he could thrive as a 6th man since he doesnt really have a true position, but he is looking like he has always been. an ok player who gets overrated.
not trying to criticize DA but i wonder how it'd look had we signed humphries and crawford over green and terry.
