Keep in mind Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he wanted both Ray Allen & Jason Terry in this recent Yahoo! Sports story:

well, at least a player I despise is going to a team I don't like. Win/win for me, since I don't have to not like a team I was previously indifferent to for signing him.

If Boston gets both Allen/Terry I will be mad!

That being said, if Ray Ray wants PT he won't be heading back because Rondo is a lock for 40 minutes at one guard slot,

then Avery Bradley, Terry, and Allen for the 2 guard?

This is why I said Boston will be good again next year, good draft, return of Green and Bradley, and if they got Terry. Like you said, Boston vs. Heat ECF again. And if the big three can stay healthy, with an improving Rondo, they can take it. But "health" is their biggest challenge.

Terry will have no problem fitting in with the celtics, his style allows him to adjust quickly, they're veterans, he'll come off the bench and be clutch, because thats what he is. Like I said earlier, good draft, return of Bradley and Green, a healthy Ray Allen and an improving Rondo makes the Celts dangerous.

Avery Bradley, Jason Terry and Ray Allen? I don't think Allen will sign there, he won't get as many minutes and will have a better chance to win elsewhere.

I said ALMOST beat them, I didn't say SHOULD HAVE. I also said TRY to beat the Heat this year. Stop trying to bait Knicks fans left and right I'm so tired of it. You know what's also hilarious? A lot of Heat fans were so scared when Bosh came back because they thought it might ruin the chemistry Wade/LeBron had created in the short time he was gone and then he comes back and does well and all of the sudden it's all hail Bosh. Please, give me a break. Congratulations on your trophy, really, but it doesn't give you an excuse to run around these forums acting like 1. you're better than everyone else and 2. like a troll. Something I've seen you do time and time again.

seriously? You got some white stiff from europe and if they get Dwight they have 2 stars (Dwight and Deron) and 2 sold role players in Wallace and JJ. All teams will have to do is to play physical, which a team like Boston can exploit. A team with 4 players is going to wear down easily......

Miami is getting Ray Allen. Who wants to play behind Terry and Bradley? If he wants a ring, he goes to Miami, simple as that. He needs to hurry up and sign here already. I don't want to get Crawford or some other person as much. Forget Rondo, Ray. Rondo is just annoying and immature, albeit talented player. Not worth the character issues.

It would be at 50 million or so. Peaches definitely wants to be back. I wouldn't be surprised if he took the minimum. They've got Bird rights to all of the players you mentioned as well.

I don't really see how you could say that, given next year a healthy Ray Allen, a healthy Avery Bradley, Garnett, Rondo, and Pierce all back, and other additions like Fab Melo and now possibly Jason Terry. They did take the Heat to game 7 without Bradley, A version of Ray Allen who wasn't half himself and without Terry.

I dont know what kind of heat fans said they were worried that bosh coming back would hurt the team but it certainly wasnt me or anybody else I know.. That being said good for boston but me personally im not scared of boston at all.. Do they have a good team?? sure but so do we and terry isnt the difference.. same goes for wilcox and bradley **** even green.. When they beat us ill be scared but until they do screw em.. We are the better team.. If you feel different good for you but we have taken the east 2 years in a row (beating the celtics both years) and are coming of an nba championship...

I really can't understand why the heat fans would really insist that if bosh was there it would of been different. Wade is playing with an injured knee and god knows what else. What about the fact that an aging boston team with I believe an average age of 30 yrs old and we didn't have Allen at his best and Bradley was out. What if we had those pieces? The heat wouldn't of been in the championship. We had no decent c and we had a injured sg starting. Don't worry unless the heat make a move then i think they wont be back. And here we go with the nets im sorry to tell you it's not going to work they won't have a team by the time these trades are done.

For now...as in a week or 2. Mark Cuban is our owner, he's always going to do something to try to make us competitive. Whether that plan works or not is another story.

maybe against your team.. but not against the heat.. they might be legit but last i checked they havent got dwight.. and joe jhonson well i wont even get started.. good luck nets.. hopefully you can get past chicago , boston or new york.. i dont think they will even with dwight..

old teams have to deal with injurys from time to time just sayin.. and bradley is not feared around here..

Well he should be seeing as in games where he gets above 25 mins Wade averages, 17.5ppg on about a 39% from the field. Although its only two games its not unreasonable to think that Bradley could've been a factor in the series.


does battier scare you?? i mean a rookie right?? yea put em on a healthy wade.. i know im scared lmao.. sorry boston but you have to beat us to have a arguement on how your better.. or maybe thats just me..

Battier sucked for most of the year, until the finals but most sports fans have selective memory.


like i said one or 2 plays in the REGULAR SEASON doesnt scare me or any heat fan.. get prepared all you want it doesnt mean your gonna win.. show me paul pierce doing that to lebron.. i know he has but did that stop lebron from scoring 40+ on him?? nice play bradley it was by far the highlight of his career... id put up youtube clips of you getting knocked out the playoffs the past 2 years but im pretty sure you have seen it..

Well obviously you can't stop superstars in Lebron and Wade, what you can do however is try to put them in the most inefficient positions you can and force them to spots were they're weakest at. Did it work? No but that doesn't means that Paul Pierce didn't play his *** off on D. Although I'd agree showing a video of Bradley blocking Wade to say he would've been a factor is kind of stupid imo.


are people really talking about the nets?? really?? dont you have to win something before you talk?? is this jersey or brooklyn talking non sence?? good stuff i guess we will see.. i guess lopez and joe jhonson got you hyped

If we resign the rest of our guys:

Rondo, Terry, Dooling
Bradley, Ray, Moore
Pierce, Green, ,Pietrus
Bass, Sullinger, JJ
KG, Stiemsma, Melo

I can't imagine someone signing Dooling for more than the min. Pietrus could sign for the min as well.

That is a team I'd be optimistic about.

Celtics have bird rights on bass and Ray.....and Stiemsma is an RFA.

They can get them all.

That's fine, but deep down there's a chance he wish it didn't go down like that. Besides, from what I've heard, he wants a ring and a "significant" role on the team. I don't know how that happens now....unless Doc can mix and match somehow.

Why do you think he would come to Miami? It's certainly not of the minutes or money. It's for to win a championship, and regardless of the position, the Celtics have gotten stronger, and energy in the club house feels like they can win it all. There's no reason to come to Miami, especially if the Celtics can offer the same chances and more money.

he can play behind wade, miami plays lineups without a PG and allen could get 22-26min a game. Also allen would close games, but he would probably close games anywhere.

Miami gives him the best shot at a ring and a good amount of playing time imo.

He would be the celtics 7th man(terry would be their 6th man) and miami's 6th man

If you beat us the year before youd have an argument but give it up bro.. When boston beats us in the playoffs let me know...

Ok, im not complaining they beat us. What I'm saying is that bosh was not the reason. And yes I do understand both teams were at "loss" with ailments they faced, but the celtics with a healthy bradley and Allen would of took the game. Allen one if the best ft shooters was shooting 70 % from the ft line. Not because he is getting old because he did have an injury. But be it as it may I would bet that the heat don't repeat or even get to the championship when you can raise 16 like we have then you have an argument.

Most of you are missing the point. If celtics sign jason terry this should spell the end of a Ray Allen return. Jason Terry basically takes over ray ray role with them. Jason Terry has come off the bench most of his career, he has no problem with that. There was reports that Allen was upset with that role. He has never played sf, why start this late in his career? jET is a SG not PG. Celtics will probably sign a vet pg to back up rondo and be done with free agency.

were you alive for any of them besides 08??

to the rest of your post you are saying what ifs no?? we beat you the past 2 seasons.. i agree with you that those losses were huge but bosh was a bigger loss.. our team is built on 3 guys.. when one of those go down we cant be as good as we are.. like i said earlier this can go on and on but it wont get anywhere... we won the past 2 years and i dont see that changing.. if you do congrats bro but ill beleive it when it actually happens..

If i said the bulls would have knocked you out before the ecf would you agree (if rose was healthy) i mean thats the arguement were having.. also alls I heard last year was 3-1 celtics 3-1 bulls what happened? this year it was oh rose, ray, bradley ect.. then it was any team out of the west was gonna destroy us.. i heard okc was gonna kill us.. what happened.. oh yea the refs.. we won regardless so lets move on

First of all i'd like to say Boston looks dangerous next year. I have them as meeting the HEAT in the ECF again.

But holy ****, shut up already about the fact that Boston took the HEAT to 7 with injuries. We had injuries to! Not only the fact that Boston played us for four games without Bosh, but Wade's injury was a lot more significant than everyone thought. He clearly didn't look himself the ENTIRE playoffs other than those 6 disgusting halves against Indy. It was a good series and you guys lost, stop talking about hypotheticals because its over now.

We'll meet again next year and battle it out again.

This is what i think is the most likely scenario.

Allen still might resign, but if they do in fact sign terry i think that really decreases the chances that allen returns.

Well, trying to have a rational conversation with someone is hard to do at times on this site, but that's just me. And when I brought up Boston, I'd rather you know I dislike Boston much. Specially due to the fact I'm a Laker fan. Boston got better today, when you get better you have more of a chance to win, when you have more of a chance to win, sometimes you land in the finals, and that's pretty much all it means.

Well, trying to have a rational conversation with someone is hard to do at times on this site, but that's just me. And when I brought up Boston, I'd rather you know I dislike Boston much. Specially due to the fact I'm a Laker fan. Boston got better today, when you get better you have more of a chance to win, when you have more of a chance to win, sometimes you land in the finals, and that's pretty much all it means.

like i said there is not much to say.. we won AGAIN.. did they get better?/ yea but thats not what i was responding to.. I also beleive we are still the better team and just beacuse they signed terry doesnt mean I have to change my opinion.. what are you on?? try reading from first post to last.. if you skip a bunch you get confused at what i was really trying to say..

It's whatever floats your boat I understand though, many do it. I even tend to slip from time to time, and then I remember, I'm not in the gym, they have my time, money, and support, but my sweat isn't on their floor. It's the Lakers championship, and my championship memory.

hey good for you.. I know my sweat isnt on the floor lmao but just because i write we instead of them doesnt mean i think i wear a heat jersey...

That's a powerful lot of money to spend on a player that will play 12 minutes a game (just at PG only). Terry will be a tweener, and Ray will not be signed.

Rondo 34 min Terry 10 min
Bradley 32 min Terry 12 min
4th/5th guard: 8 min

Doc has maintained that he wants Terry and Allen for the past week.

With bosh out and injured? you would forget that

Dude I just want to say one thing, because this has been bugging me. Congrats on the title, I don't like LeBron but the title is well deserved.

However, I do want Heat fans to keep in mind:
The Heat were pushed to the brink (3-2 at one point!) by a Boston team
- playing without last year's trade prize Jeff Green coming off the bench
- playing without starting center Jermaine O'Neal and backup big man Chris Wilcox
- with top reserve No. 2 Brandon Bass (the other one being Jeff Green) and No.3 Avery Bradley in the starting lineup, thus reducing the bench to a hobbled Ray Allen (who required surgery), newcomer Mickael Pietrus (who required surgery) and hurt D-League big man Greg Stiemsma

While it is true that KG's shift to center and AB's insertion in the lineup revitalized the C's, I am 100% sure that

Rondo, Ray, Pierce, KG, JO, Green, Bass, Bradley, Wilcox, Dooling, Stiemsma
>>>> Rondo, Ray, Pierce, KG, Bass, Bradley, Pietrus, Stiemsma

I think it's great for LeBron, the Heat and Heat fans that Miami won the championship, and I'm not taking away from the amazing accomplishment of beating the Thunder in 5 games (something I don't think the Celtics could have done, I admit that), but if the Heat ran into the Celtics at full strength, there's no way that they would have even advanced to the Finals.

I am not stating this because I want sympathy for the Celtics or anything like that, but I do want everyone to know that it is highly impressive how far the Celtics got yet again.

Just wanted to get this out of my system.

Congrats, you pushed miami without bosh and wade with a knee that needs surgery. You had no answer for lebron at all.

I give all the respect in the world to the celtics. i said they were a bigger threat to miami last year than a healthy bulls team.

To say miami would have lost to a full strength celtics team is one of the dumbest things i have read on here. But if thats what you believe cool. Celtics would not have won more than one game if miami was 100% healthy, see, that sounds pretty dumb too.

Were boston's 2nd and 3rd best players injured/playing less than 100%? Nope, nothing was wrong with rondo or KG. If celtics were as good as you are saying they are they would have beat miami with bosh and wade injured

This is what i think is the most likely scenario.

Allen still might resign, but if they do in fact sign terry i think that really decreases the chances that allen returns.

It looks like it might come down to clippers and miami.

clippers can probably offer 3yr-15mil and miami can offer 3 yr 9mil

LAC could use him the most honestly. i think ya'll are gonna get shard and frankly that makes more sense imo. i just don't see allen taking this the right way, he left w a sour taste in his mouth after the season for reasons related to playing time.

Lol I don't need your apology nor will I give you mine. But I at least want Heat fans to know that they were damn lucky that the Celtics have had so many injuries. (I know that our team structure - age - factors into this, but you have to admit that we've had our fair share of bad luck). Other teams have had injuries too, and I'm not taking anything away from champions - if you win it, you win it, no matter what - but I'm sick and tired of how the Celtics are being dismissed by so many people. The Celtics team that you saw in the playoffs (Which got ridiculously close to the Finals) was a watered-down injury-decimated version of the team that we could have had.

I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but that's just what it is.

Health is something you can't control and I know that no team is ever 100% healthy, but you do understand that a "healthy" Celtics team would have had:
- the all-time 3-point king Ray Allen fully effective
- Jermaine O'Neal and Chris Wilcox playing minutes instead of Stiemsma and Hollins
- former 5th overall pick Jeff Green coming off the bench?

Ok. Miami still wins that in 6, maybe 5 if both teams were 100% healthy imo.

When was the last time boston has a fully healthy team in the playoffs? 2008? There is a trend here... And the fact that they are all a year older...

Allen definitely still had in impact in the series.

I am not score of JO/Wilcox at all....

Jeff Green would make an impact sure, but not nearly as big as having a healthy D-Wade (top 3-5 player), and the Heat's best big man and a top 15 league player. Jeff Green isn't even top 50, and Wilcox and JO like top 250.....

Jeff Green is 6-9 235, so he can guard Lebron. That's probably the most important part of his game is that he could help Pierce out on Lebron.

But you're right, we still need to see if he can come back in his old form.

BOS and MIA may have had similar stars 2 years ago, but both teams were very different even last year from what they were the year before. 2 years ago and this year aren't really related even in the slightest.

You don't care about what? I conceded that you won and that injuries are not a great excuse.

And obviously the Celtics got the better end of the trade. We basically traded Perkins and Kristic (Perkins is not that good, and Kristic isn't either) for Jeff Green (great 6th man), Fab Melo (from Clippers first rounder), and a Bobcats second rounder next year (should be near the first round). I'd do that trade again, and again. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

And the year before that MIA lost to BOS. Point being, what the **** does it have to do with anything? Last season's matchup is obviously somewhat relevant, but anything before that is a totally different story. The Heat themselves would tell you that they're totally different. Haslem and Miller weren't healthy two years ago - they are now. Battier wasn't on the team. Chalmers is much better today than he was 2 years ago. Joel Anthony seems to have regressed/been phased out. On BOS's side, pretty much the entire cast outside of Rondo, Pierce, and KG (maybe Ray) will be different from 2 years ago. There's very little connection from that series to the present. If BOS and MIA meet again, it's more part 2 to last year's series than a part 3. Both teams are in very different placed from that first matchup.

Really? I'm not trying to beat you at anything, I'm just trying to get my point across.

The "stuck in Year 5 of a 3-year project", old, injury-hobbled, makeshift Celtics took the almighty, super-athletic, spry "Year 2 of the Big 3 era" Miami Heat to 7 games and we NEED your respect? We should HAVE your respect. It's not about winning or losing, it's about how far Boston got with the condition (self-inflicted or not) the roster was in. This is not Your Big 3 vs My Big 3, there are too many years between them for that sort of discussion, this is about recognizing that those old Celtics you mock nearly knocked you divas out.

Again: the title is well-deserved, but don't say the Celtics were just a speed bump. They gave you everything you could handle. And they weren't even healthy.

And? He was suggesting that Green isn't a good player. Which isn't true. He's a pretty damn good player.

yea, but im saying that those numbers were as a #3 option. If he is going to get 12-15 attempts a a game then i can see him putting up similar numbers, im just not sure what exactly his role will be or how he will play.

Hey, to all my fellow HEAT fans, no need to argue about whats done with.

These "if" he was healthy, games are useless. The 2012 ECF are over with.

This thread is about Boston getting Jason Terry, so congrats to them, Terry certainly a great player and nice addition!

Boston fans as well,

No need to argue guys, the ECF is over.

Congrats on a great pick-up.

His looks will be better as a #4-5 option, can't see that as a bad thing.

Green won't be the 3rd best player on our team next year, but his role as a scorer will be higher than his overall position. I mean, I think he'll probably outscore Rondo next year, but he won't be a better player. That does rank him as a higher scoring option than Rondo though. See what I'm saying.

Remember, Green will be a part of the second unit, not the starting lineup as he was in OKC. That means he won'te be playing w/ our other top scorers as much, creating more opportunities for him. I'd be surprised if he averaged less than 12 points per game next year, and that's not a huge drop off from the 15 he averaged in OKC. I think BOS will have Pierce at about 17-18 and then a glut of guys in the 10-15 range. We have a very different scoring structure than MIA.

The injury excuse is BS. Every team in the NBA had to deal with injuries this past season except OKC IND and SA.

Yes the Celtics had injury problems but so did NY, MIA, CHI, both LAs, MEM, ORL both in the regular season and playoffs. Part of the game my friends

he can play behind wade, miami plays lineups without a PG and allen could get 22-26min a game. Also allen would close games, but he would probably close games anywhere.

Miami gives him the best shot at a ring and a good amount of playing time imo.

He would be the celtics 7th man(terry would be their 6th man) and miami's 6th man

Still doesn't scream "significant" to me. If he wanted to ride the bench he should stay in Boston.


they will give him what he wants.....they are gonna put wade at pg and allen at sg

Wade can't play pg defensively for a whole season.

It's one thing to ride the bench for a future hall of famer, but to come off the bench behind bradley and split minutes with terry?

I would stack the odds like this

50% he returns to boston
35% he goes to miami
15% he goes to clippers.

And i agree, wade can not play pg for a whole season.

The injury excuse is the worst people lie to them selfs and others.Injury's will always happen this post season the Clipps and NY fans use it the most.

Its really annoying I think only Portland fan's have the right to Bi c ht about injury's

It's not an excuse though. Some Heat fans were a little too quick to dismiss Boston, which I think is unfair.
