He will be our 6th man. We need scoring off the bench.

Now hopefully BBD will sign his offer.

best case scenario off the bench, but not likely to have all of these:

Tinsley - Trade a couple young guys and expiring deals
House
Hill - Bi annual exception
Davis
Wallace

that is a solid bench. not likely to happen, but it is possible.

Good signing for the Celtics. Hill is unlikely to end up in Boston now, unless he is willing to take chump change, but this is one of the best pickups they could have made to strengthen their bench.

i think he should start

rondo
allen
peirce
kg
wallace

it would give them a versatile frontline they both have range which could bring bigs out the paint and allow peirce and rondo to penetrate

No. They need some scoring off the bench. Either put Ray Allen on the bench or Rasheed.

He fits the style and system for sure, just don't think he fits the team personality. For whatever reason, I just don't see him and KG co-existing well. Maybe they will. It could be great, or it could be meh. I just have been skeptical of Sheed's motiviation for like the past 3 or 4 years. He's just a strange player. So combustible, but in the right situation, that same combustibility can breed success. Just wonder if that combo will be right for Boston. They are already a very emotional team, and adding a guy who never hold back, I dunno.

i really dont like this guy, but man that puts the celts a lot closer to winning another ring. this is a really good signing. i think he should come off the bench tho, cause hes better than perk, so it makes their second string better, and also neither garnett or rasheed are true centers, and perk is. but man, davis is gonna continue to develop, house resigned, things are lookin good.

having ray allen come off the bench is soo stupid. whether he scores alot or not, teams have to game plan against him so much, hes started his whole career and put up great numbers last year. hes not coming off the bench, that could throw his game out of whack

07-05-2009, 09:05 PM

DUDE...Are you kiddin me? The Big Three along with the Celtics coach, GM and OWNER traveled to Sheeds living room to talk to him about signing with us. For 3 HOURS THEY CHATTED you dont think Sheed playing off the bench was discussed? You dont think they talked about playing time and his role with us? Hes knows what he coming here for. Sheed will be the 6xth man. Sheed will play 25-35 minutes. We'll be fine

San Antonio, Cleveland, Orlando, Los Angeles and Boston are all bulking up for next season. It's going to be hard battle for the number 1 spot.

Wonder who's next to make a "big" move?
You would have to think Denver is thinking of something. They're definitely a team that can compete with the best but I think they're one good piece away from being a legitimate contender.

shep33
07-05-2009, 09:19 PM
Kinda don't like this for the Celts... I mean, yeah they're getting a good player, but they're getting good old players. They basically have to win this year or i think thats it for them. Plus if I were Ray Ray, and Rondo I'd be pretty pissed off for trying to trade me to the Pistons. I wonder if Rondo will even be there next year.

Grim Reaper
07-05-2009, 09:19 PM
Yeah. If we can sign Grant Hill and resign Glen Davis we'd be a team to be reckoned with. That's called "Keeping up with the Joneses." Rasheed and Grant Hill are already great defenders coming into a great defensive team. I think that puts the Celtics back on top of the East.

Yeah, and I was critical of the signing and was a not a fan of it.

Sheed and KG are just like Ron and Kobe in the sense two of them wear their heart on their sleeve and sometimes cross a line and two of them live, breath, and eat basketball.

I think Boston should let Powe, Baby, and Stephon walk and use the BAE on Hill since he can be the point foward and trust House off the bench as well as Scal and Tony as situational players.

Great signing for us.

It's been said that we're the front runner for Grant Hill, and all indications are we're going to match on Big Baby, so we're looking at a line of:

Rondo/FA
Allen/House
Pierce/Hill
Garnett/Baby
Perk/Sheed

That's not too shabby, even if we have to slum it with Marbury or T. Lue at the backup point.

I like this team's potential better than '08 if all plays out.

Orlando is still pretty solid, Cleveland too... but yeah I got the Celts in the east IF they're healthy... remember people these guys are old.. Sheed's what 35, KG 33, Ray 34, Pierce 31 (gonna be 32 when the season starts), Grant Hill (possibly get him) 37 when the season starts. So injuries can take there toll on this team, hopefully not though b/c I wanna see a Celts vs. Lakers finals, with both teams healthy.

07-05-2009, 09:37 PM
This is a great signing for the Celtics. This significantly upgrades there bench and insurance in case of an injury to Kevin Garnett. He adds a veteran presence a tough defender, a shot blocker and a shooter. However even with this move they still need to make more moves to the bench to be at a championship level. A backup SF and PG our the major needs off the bench and they are currently looking at Grant Hill who can fill both voids however they can only offer him the bi annual exception so I believe he will go elsewhere. Oh yeah one more thing HE IS COMING OFF THE BENCH.

Hmm interesting...the East just continues to get better. Although I wonder if Rasheed would be in the starting rotation and Perkins comes off the bench? Personally if I were a Celtics fan, I'd just rather see Rasheed come off the bench as their 6th man, because in that role, I think it'd be ideal especially playing for Boston seeing that they're loaded with offensive weapons anyways.

When Pierce went down, he says that he felt a pop in his knee. Tests indicate he hasnít suffered any major injury and should be close to 100% for the rest of the series.

The Celtics main focus now is resigning Glen Davis and signing Grant Hill. We have Gabe Pruitt and Lester Hudson as backup PG's so if Marbury won't come for cheap we will find someone that will or see what Pruitt and Hudson can do during the Summer league and preseason but, the main concerns as of right now are resigning Davis and signing Grant Hill and I am pretty sure they will get the both under contract within the next week or so.

Signing Baby is key. Sheed is nice but hes our ONLY big off the bench. Well Scal but im not sure anyone expects much from him. I hope Baby is signed. U heard a rumble that if the Offer went over 3-4 million the C's would let em walk. Who know's. I wish Birdman could be had for cheap and slotted in as the backup 5 moving Sheed to the 4. Unlikely. Hope there isnt a team out there in love with Davis and over pays.

A bit off topic, but I'm not sure how much I like all these top tier teams getting better. I mean, I like it in one sense, because it should create for some dynamic and epic late round playoff battles.

But, I feel over the past several years, there was a good amount of parity in the league. Now, I feel like there is going to be some rather unintriguing and poor regular season basketball. Which for the league as a whole, probalby isn't good. I mean, after the top 6 or 8 teams in the league or so, theres just a big drop off in talent, and just creates a lot of mediocrity. I dunno.

Look at it this way, everyone outside of the top 3 teams in each conference
- LA, Boston, SA, Denver, Orlando, Cleveland

Can be seen as capable of beating one another which means that 12 teams will be competivitve with one another instead of their being a tier of elites, mediocrity, and bottom feeders

It is more intriguing IMO. All the teams are trying so hard to get better. A higher level of competition between the top teams. The NBA has never had true parity. Even if there was parity in the regular season, it was still just the regular season. Those OK teams, we all knew they would still be OK and wouldn't have a true chance. Now, the NBA has 4-5 teams with ridiculous talent and stacked teams. The NBA is WAY MORE exciting because everybody will be watching every game to see each team trying to one up each other and get Home-Court Advantage. Not to mention the epic battles between the teams in the regular season to prove themselves better before the playoffs when the classic battles will be sure to come.

This makes the Celtics, if they stay healthy, the favorite in my opinion. That being said, it is nice to see the top teams all getting aggressive and adding pieces. The Lakers will not be knocked off easy, that is for sure. Cleveland, SA, Boston, have all gotten better. And we are barely into the offseason. Should be interesting.

This makes the Celtics, if they stay healthy, the favorite in my opinion. That being said, it is nice to see the top teams all getting aggressive and adding pieces. The Lakers will not be knocked off easy, that is for sure. Cleveland, SA, Boston, have all gotten better. And we are barely into the offseason. Should be interesting.

Now it depends on where Mcdyess and Bass go.

this doesn't scare Lebron at all. I remember Lebron embarassing Sheed and the Pistons last year. lebron owns sheed.

Sheed's playoff numbers last year - 6 ppg shooting 36%. he really lit up. And he'll be 35 next year. a lot of mileage on him.

If I told you that its been said here in Boston on numerous occasions and by the GM that Sheed will be coming off the bench would you change your mind?

Sheed wont starts unless theres injuries

dude you don't know what your talking about..u gota be kidding me. if perkins is gona start over sheed who is gona be the starting over KG? You? ridiculous that you can even compare weak perkins to Sheed. The GM doesn't get to decide before the season even begins who starts. Sheed has to start next to KG. It only makes sense.

Here is why Wallace is comming off the bench.

You cant have Sheed and KG in there too much. thats way too much shooting and not enough banging and grabbing boards down low. They both like to play around the perimeter. Also, theres Ray Allen and Pierce that play the perimeter.

Wallace will be huge off the bench along with Eddie House.

When was the last time Lebron won in Boston?

its funny how people forget about other teams
when the celtics do anything
i understand they have a horrible bench ...and its full of bums
and they try to leave 1 "Star" out there with them....

but sorry this is not going to put them over the top...
kg is the most important piece of he is not as dominant as he usually is
the celtics dont stand a chance...
then again it is the East....and the cavs are seen as one of the better teams in the east and they suck too...
so who knows....

i got my money on the Magic or (cavs or boston aint making the finals)

Yeah...and I' d love to see lakers and celts in the finals one more time!

BTW I don't care about sheed going to boston, he won't make them improve that much...he's old and almost done...
plus is very uncertain that they will keep powe and glen davis...

It's amazing where the Celtics were two years ago, with a bleak future, and now, every star wants to play there.
Ainge really deserves kudos for what he's done with that team.

You didn't defend your argument at all. You need to explain why Boston sucks.
They'll now have Sheed or Perk off the bench. Powe will likely resign. If they get Hill too, then this is one of the deepest teams in the league.

The Cavs had great defense last year. The thing that beat them was no size in the middle. They have that now. There is also talk of Marion possibly going there.
The east is a 3 headed monster.

With Sheed, the Celtics are the best in the NBA. Grant Hill is on his way too. Banner #18!!!

that puts us over the edge... i dont care if the cavs got shaq cuz perk can cover him.. all we needed was a big guy to come off the bench and now we have a starter coming off the bench... no doubt we are gonna be back to running things!

As a Boston fan I am psyched, but i'm not going to sound stupid and immature and prematurely pick Boston to win it all. The league is to good.
