    Miss Steimsma..... smh..... sad state of affairs when, that.
    Agreed, but also Darko.... I said this almost month ago, the guy is outta shape, period. He has shown Doc Rivers no sign he should/ want/ needs playing time.

    I watched three hour Celtic practice. The guy was having trouble getting back on defense, missing easy reads, failed step up high screen, missed basic switch, and didn't block out atleast 3-5 times I can recall. Thats just to start.....Oh and not to mention he's 40lbs overweight!

    Yeah theres a reason Doc Rivers gave him 0mins last night vs Nets (11/15)

    ****ing guy. What a waste of space. I'd like to inject some KG, Russell, and McHale DNA into that thing he calls a brain.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Hopefully Bradley will be a shot in the arm until the playoffs

    Could really use a 6'10" energy guy

    I agree.

    I also think that we need to give Sully a bit more time and he could fill that role easily this season. Hes's a fighter under the boards (especially offensive) and when hes fighting underneath the boards like he can, we look like an entirely different team.

    The lack of rebounding really makes games hard to watch...

    The C's energy guy besides KG and AB is Bass... He needs to stop falling into the Big Baby trap of jump shots and use some of that athleticism and muscle he has like Reggie Evans and bang in the paint for rebounds...

    He said himself that his focus this season was getting better on the rebounding side... Time to show it Brandon... 5-3-5 rebounds in the last 3 games...

    Ok, I know it was the Raptors but yesterday provided a glimpse of what this team can aspire to.

    37 assists on 43 field goals.

    Every Celtic player that played scored at least 4 points

    KG played 17:10
    Pierce played 25:21
    Rondo played 32:12

    Just about perfect, imo. Like to see KG at about 24 minutes. Rondo at maybe 34, but that's nitpicking.

    Bench contribues 41 pts, 19 rebounds, 10 assists, 5 steals

    *** Not ready to say they have it all figured out, but damn! And yeah, it was against the Raptors, but if they continue to build on what they started to show in Chicago and have carried through on since... yeah, they have a chnace to be pretty good.

    Pierce 25:21
    Bass 24:16
    KG 17:10
    Terry 29:19
    Rondo 32:12

    Wilcox 24:45
    Sullinger 26:23
    Lee 18:41
    Barbosa 15:48
    Green 26:05

    I was thinking about this / Bass / Big Baby the other day. For one delusional moment I thought it would be nice to have Baby with this group instead of Bass because of the exuberance Baby plays with.

    Bass ... doesn't bring quite the same dynamic, but you are 100% correct about the rebounding aspect. I think Wilcox brings some energy and hopefully ever more so as he gets back in the flow of playing again.

    True plus regardless you still have to play... Perfect game if played right is a good way to continue the chemistry and minute building for certain guys...

    Perfect game for the bench to learn each others tendencies and to continue working on Doc's defensive schemes...

    When AB returns he'll add the defensive prowess this team needs to show how good DA envisioned them to be...

    Definitely a step backwards tonight against the lowly Pistons.

    Can sum up the game by pointing out the Celtics had 12 assists on 32 field goals.... with Rondo getting 10 of them.... and it was stupid having him in late during a blowout just to preserve the streak.

    Only other C's with an assist tonight? Jeff Green and Barbosa with one each.

    Pathetic.

    Celtics with 17 turnovers..... and 12 freaking assists....... :cry:

    We are to thin inside. We must look at other options, this team just can't get it done inside. I know you don't need a low post scorer NBA anymore to win, but you need someone to box out and rebound, period.

    Pre season I gave the depth at the 5 and lack of a standout at the 4 as the reasons we can't win a title, and you checked it off as a yes, or visa versa.

    A 6'10.5" guy that can play 20 MPG with 3.5/7.5 would be useful, but probably still not enough since either KG or Wilcox is bound to end up sitting at some point with injuries.

    We'll see. 1990-1991 Celts come to mind (not for the bigs problem - just the age of the stars angle), 56 wins, out in the semi's.

    This team wins without rebounding well. It was a weakness last season. It is a weakness this season.

    Sharing the ball has been a team strength. Last night ... it was a glaring weakness.

    Play to your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. It's what every team does, or tries to do.
