The Boston Herald is reporting Moore is expected to sign with the Celtics tomorrow.

This is horrible! I don't know what he will provide to us - he's about a tenth of PJ Brown. So we're without a bruiser down below this year (Brown), a guy who makes big threes and does the dirty work (Posey) and a veteran backup point guard (Cassell). Great.

I don't expect him to do anything significant in the playoffs - here is towards signing Stephon Marbury.

Garbage player, Celtics look pretty desperate, hopefully they can still get either Marbs or Smith

It seemed like people liked this move before?

I have always thought of Mikki Moore as a nobody, and I really havent seen anything that would make me change my opinion.

Dude is hot garbage.
It's no coincidence that he was the biggest journeyman until he met Mr. Jason Kidd in New Jersey.
Dude was bouncing around from team to team in the NBA, overseas, D-League, etc.
Once he met Kidd he had a decent season, then he fooled the Kings and started sucking again.
Good for you C's

he's good... at yelling. Besides that he provides nothing. He's the softest big man in the whole league and he doesn't have jkidd to pad his stats no more. He got lucky to get that damn contract from us and i hope he fails miserably in boston. Boston fans shouldn't be surprised when he drops passes and runs away from a rebound.

He's pretty bad...He has rocks for hands and isn't as good of a rebounder as advertised. He does hustle....but he's so skinny that he can't guard any bulky Centers without getting abused.

He's not that bad. He is extremely active on defense and he actually led the NBA in FG% a couple years ago. He's one of those players that contributes in other ways that don't show up on a stat sheet. He played great with J. Kidd as his PG. Now lets see what Rondo can do for him especially now that Rondo has been tearing it up since KG went down.

Miki Moore is horrible. The last 2 games the Celtics looked good, I don't know why they are so desperate. Is it worth chasing the top seed in the playoffs? I this k they will be better off rested.

Once again the Herald jumped the gun. Moore sucks, we don't need him. but we have two roster spots so why not.

All he is good for is six fouls on Wallace In the Eastern conf finals. This will ensure 1 point for six trips down the floor for the Cavs. Good pick up.

i know right? People are acting like were signing him to be our savior or something. Were signing him to be an active big man off the bench 5-10 per game. And im pretty sure he can handle that.

Now, the other quesiton is..scalabrine..if he had a concussion again..i think hes done for the season. So we might try getting another big..not too mention another PG/SG..marbury hopefully.

Smith and Marbury are still options, however its Feb 24. we are running out of time on the buyout possibility.

as for Moore, we dont have much of a choice. we need someone out there to aleast take fouls instead of KG taking them all.

I have a funny feeling that says he's going to Denver or Phoenix. The way his agent is talking makes it sound basically like Moore's saying Boston would be great but it's not for me. Just my gut telling me this. We will see what happens though.

I think it is for sure Possible of Mikki going to Phoenix. They need a PF badly. We need more depth. Mikki may be trash(Like everyone says haha...), but maybe Nash can make him a good player! :) **** I will take whatever the hell we can get at this point!

If he wants more playing time, he'll stay in the West, as he's not going to get a ton of minutes in Boston, unless Scalabrine is out for the season, or Perkins goes down with an injury.

Oh no!!!!! The defending champion Celtics with the best record in the East picked up a ****** player who they are only going to give junk minutes. Boo hoo, we all feel very sorry for you

mikki moore had a miracle season with the Nets that will be impossible for him to replicate. but, knowing the recent luck of the Celtics he'll probably come over and be a monster.

and to all the celtics fans who are campaigning for Marbury, you must be crazy.

You guys don't think Nash could make him look good?

02-24-2009, 11:44 AM
Yeah I don't get what the problem is... I thought Mikki Moore was a decent player to have for a bit of energy at the end of the bench.
Obviously he's not a great player, maybe not even a good player, but a veteran who hustles and shoots a decent percentage, what's wrong with that?

Well if joe smith is released he will be a cav. So thx celtics.

Right... he's only a decent player when he has a player like Jason Kidd on his side... I don't think he'll do much, but he'll show an air of how good he could''ve been from time to time.

Exactly..Mikki Moore is a better player than Both Big baby and Scal

He would be an upgrade over those 2 guys IMO

ive followed him since he was on the pistons.. my highlight of Mikki is when he was on the pistons (cuz they were awesomely awesome) and the announcers were arguing how to pronounce his name (mikey or mickey) and how much he loved "Life" cereal.. i swear to ditka this is true

Looks like the deal is near completion. I don't like how people say Joe Smith is such a better player when

1) he's just as lightweight as Moore (both listed at 225)

2) he hasn't started nearly as many games as Moore (58 games over the past 4 years-Moore's started 156 in that same timeframe)

3) Smith hasn't played a full season in over 10 years (Moore played all games last year and nearly all this year)

I'll take the consistency and desire to play that Moore brings over Smith's underachieving career and limited playing time over the past several seasons.

Cavs, or anyone else, you can have Joe Smith. I've never been a fan since his Maryland days.

He's a softer, poor man's Joakim Noah without the offensive rebounding and potential.

Corey
02-24-2009, 07:30 PM
He won't be too exposed, and will play with minimal stress as a backup to Perk/Garnett. He's only going to be getting 10ish minutes per game. I think he'll be able to do at least decent in our system. I don't expect him to flop.

I think the Celtics should just let KG sit out rest of the year, because they just sign a top 15 PF IMO.

they are at the top. all they need is minutes/wear and tear reduced from the the Celts big men. The Celts bench has been exposed against teams with 4 usable guys 6' 9" or over. Not so much now.

I'd much rather have Rondo right now but he's still not as good of a playmaker as Kidd. Kidd's athleticism and speed have taken hits but his floor vision and leadership are still at an elite level.

Mikki Moore Brad Miller Joe Smith PJ Brown (over with) why talk about him

Mikki Moore will do everything those guys can do so dont trip all over the matter

Celtics fans you need some1 2help out + my kings just released him

Net/Sac he wasnt great but with KG Allen Pierce Perkins Rondo = never been around that much talent before
hell be a legit bench player that goes hyphy as hell
hell obey d.Rivers and spread offense w/ outside/ inside presence
this dude can dunk ridiculously when passed to=rondo

Celtics you need someone who can dunk/rebound/pass/block
At least until KG and comes back and they look like last year's Big 3
