Blow it up!

;)

I wish the team played well every night, but we've seen this team struggle enough at times to know that almost always, they eventually right the ship.

Look guys we lost to the Heat last season. Does it really matter whether it was game 7 or game 4. Celtics should not be about Moral victories, no proud organization should live on moral victories.

Doc Rivers gets too too many passes on this board. At some point we have to look at production on the court. One championship is not enough to show for the big3 period. It is not about the two losses we have suffered so far, it is how we have lost the games. The defense is non-existent, and the offense was subpar last night. At some point the coaching has to be questioned.

It's not about this board. It's about the entire NBA if you mean the respect he's getting as a coach.

I think that we have only seen a small bit of what this team's potential is.  The pre season game with the nets.  That game seemed like closest to the goal.  Tough def and a variety of different looks on O that make it difficult for teams to match up and stop us from getting easy buckets.

We just need to see how things go.  This year ISN'T last year.  We can't count on the team just magically clicking after the all star break.  Plus that is too late to turn it on in a full 82 game season.  I expect Doc will figure out his rotations pretty soon.

I love revisionist history.

Should we have more than 1 banner to show for the KG/Paul/Ray era? Probably. Is it Doc's fault? Absolutely not.

07-08: Banner 17. Good times all around.
08-09: The quest for for Banner 18 gets off to a strong start. KG's knee has other ideas though, so quest ends prematurely.
09-10: We somehow get back to the Finals with a visibly less than 100% KG and an out of shape Rasheed Wallace, but Perk going down in game 6 takes the air out of our sails and Pau dominates the glass down the stretch.
10-11: A rejuvenated Shaq has us lookong like the team to beat, but he goes down and we lose our presence in the middle. And of course, "The Trade."
11-12: Jeff Green doesn't even get to start the season due to an aortic aneurysm. Chris Wilcox also goes down with a heart issue. Still, we push a talented Heat team to 7 games.

Looking at the FACTS, it would seem we've gotten dealt a few bad hands with injuries. Something I also notice, we still manage to fight and stay in the championship picture. 2 games into a new season, I'm certainly not throwing in the towel or calling for Doc's head. Honestly, we're lucky to have him. There's a reason why this team fights through adversity, why KG says he won't play for anyone else, a reason why he's consistently called one of the best coaches in the game by players and opposing coaches alike.

Seriously, if you don't think he's doing a good job, go do better.

I agree this is overreacting but I also think all the morale victory almost beating the heat stuff is just as comical....we got lucky last season playing the hawks and 76ers in the playoffs and chris bosh missing the first 5 games in the heat series didnt hurt either

By site standards, this thread is 2 games late in the season.

who would we have faced that would be harder than the hawks and 76ers? A rose-less bulls? Nah.. chris bosh only missed the first 4 games, and Bradley missed most of the heat series. Against the heat, when bradley plays significant minutes we almost never lost to them.

Three games in and it's over for you, at least your dedicated fan!  JK

We have not played well.  We have no where to go but up.  The talent is there just have to make it mesh.

KG's knee has other ideas though

Wasn't my greatest idea.  In fact, I lament nothing else, other than not having the bone spurs removed before the 08-09 season.
