    Coachs move, trying to light a fire for J. Green. Nothing big here I see, J. Green has got to show passion/ desire, period.

    I would be shocked, shocked if J. Green gets traded this year. It would have to be a great deal for Celtics/ youth.

    Listen, Danny looked at how East/ NBA was shaping/ direction of league. He/ Danny made adjustments. You need tall/ long/ speed/ ability at #3/ #4 spot today NBA.

    J. Green has the ability, now does he have the desire to be really good/ great? I think the Celtics will find out.

    I don't see him being moved, also PP isn't looking good at all, nor has he for years now, but his replacement is J. Green, for the future.

    20 points a game, 6 boards a game and 3 assists. What do you want out of this guy at this point? His shooting percentage is very low. I get that. But at a certain point we have to acknowledge that this whole team is still searching for chemistry and it still looks a little discombobulated out there. He has taken a lot of bad shots and committed a lot of stupid fouls that have taken him out of games early and it has effected his rhythm. He's trying to take the team on his back right now and he can't do it anymore. He shouldn't be put in this position by the coaching staff.

    It pains me to say this, but Rondo still doesn't have the locker room. He tries to be a leader, but only on the court. Paul and Kevin still lead the locker room. When Rajon FINALLY imposes his will and takes control this team will finally gel. He needs to knock off all of his outside stuff and give up his "brand" during the season. It pains me to say this, and I puke in my mouth as I do, but Russel Westbrook for Rajon Rondo would be a trade that works for both teams. Rondo may not be the alpha dog I once thought he was. KD and Westbrook are both alpha dogs. RR may be happy just dishing to Durant his whole career like John Stockton and letting KD speak at the press conference every night and hang back with his headphones on.

    PG Westbrook / Terry
    SG Bradley / Lee / Barbosa
    SF Green / Pierce / Joseph
    PF Sullinger / Bass / Kenyon Martin?
    C Garnett / Wilcox / Collins

    Would that team be a winner? Who knows, but it might be fun to find out..

    Yeah. Westbrook has his issues, but for a team that's going to have major problems scoring in the near/mid future, he does fit here better. Rondo being a more natural PG by mindset would be a terrific fit for OKC.


    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.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    I get what you are saying about Rondo and largely agree. Is he capable or even willing to assert himself with the presence of KG and Pierce? It's a daunting task, but one DA, Doc, KG and Pierce seemingly feel Rondo is capable of. I don't know.

    Westbrook is probably the one pg I would be willing to trade Rondo for pretty much straight up.... just work out the financials. And it has to do as much about game as it does about leadership.

    SI: Statistics suggest Joel Embiid will fully recover from foot surgery. But it could be 9-12 months before he plays http://bit.ly/1qwZuIB

    If you click the link I posted, by including Fab Melo with Rondo, the money does work because Westbrook only makes a couple more million than Rajon.
