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.....
Bass has been inconsistent - poor first haves followed by better second halves has been his m.o. - but has been the teams second leading rebounder.
You cannot judge Lee on the air ball alone. He was off to a very good start until Doc buried him on the bench. He was +5 last night.
Barbosa hasn't played for week due to flu.
I do think a guard will be included in any trade made - been saying that since Barbosa was signed. Who else would be included will likely be based on matching financials as much as anything else.
If a trade is made, say for Hickson - then that second player could be be any of Collins, Sullinger, Joseph, Melo. If a trade is made for someone like Jefferson, then the second player would need to be Bass or Green or a combination of more players.
Why wuld you trade sullinger plus another player for hickson?
hopefully green builds on his performances the lat 4 games
pierce played 44 minutes last night , KG 35 ,that's going to be a factor tonight but i can't see us losing this one .
2013-2014 BOSTON CELTICS
RONDO / PRESSEY
BRADLEY / BAYLESS / JOHNSON
GREEN / WALLACE / BOGANS
BASS / HUMPHRIES / FAVERANI
SULLINGER / OLYNYK / ANTHONY
Rondo seems like he's limping a little bit to me.
Yeah, he hurt it last night. and with Rondo's ankle injury this team looks downright geriatric tonight
Good 1st quarter. Green looks good
jeff is looking good again .
great pass !
gonna predict that Green averages 15ppg (give or take a point or 2) for the final 63 games of the season...
different 2nd unit when barbosa is out there... good to have him back...
