Don't do a Tebow... thats really disrespectful to yourself pierce.

KB-Pau-DH2012
05-01-2012, 10:08 PM
Pierce is -still- one of the more underrated players.

I think one of the reasons he's not regarded high among the premier perimeter guys of the league is that some seasons he comes into camp fat and out of shape and doesn't really start to shine until after the all-star break. I think he was like that earlier on his career as well. He was always a second half of the season/playoff player, not a first half of the regular season player.

But yeah, he'll be much more appreciated after he retires and enters the HOF.

Corey

Atlanta sucks. Even without Hortford, they still should have beat a Celtic team missing their starting backcourt. Tonight was a perfect opportunity and they blew it. Still it sucks what happened to Josh Smith. Hope he is ok or this series won't be long.

Before this game even started most Celtics fans were saying that the Hawks would take Game 2 due to the absence of Rondo. Is that not also an excuse? Come on man. Almost every team in this league has excuses due to that horrible 66 game season.

They're not a terrible team. They just don't understand how to close out games. Believe me, I've seen this for years. The classic move by the Hawks is that they give up once the other team starts to get a little fire in them and then they start thinking they can shoot like Reggie Miller and we all know that no team can win on jump shots alone. What the Hawks need is someone to take their ****** out of the game once they start with their horrible shot selections. Phil Jackson would help with that.....but that's a pipe dream for us Hawks fans. We've already seen during this series already how easily the momentum changes once the Hawks start attacking. That's what they need to keep doing. Also need to wake up and stop being so negligent. The Celtics aren't a very big team either so there's no reason why they can't set a few more screens and attack more. We'll see.....

Super.
