5 games in...It's like groundhog day at the start of every season.We have plenty of new players but we also have some OLD men on our team.KG and Pierce are still not at 100% Jeff Green is still working his way around the court after major surgery and not being able to even walk 9 months ago.We have a very long season ahead of us and a very deep bench that needs to learn and master a difficult defensive system.Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. No one is to blame.We aren't the Lakers here. You give people more than 5 games, particularly if they won you a championship and got you darn close on multiple occasions.
Is it Doc's fault that Terry, Green and Lee have under achieved so far?Pierce and KG are actualy playing well, Bass is solid and Rondo has been good but just not at his best. Those are the guys that were in the rotation last year so hopefully it's just a matter of familiarity. Once the rest of the new guys understand their roles better hopefully things turn around.

I keep hearing it's a work in progress.we started last season 5 wins to 9 losses on a shortened schedule and we were 1 quarter away from ruining the Chosen One's NBA Finals destiny. chill out.

Message to Doc:Enough with the small ball. Joseph is better than Lee at this point and Bass and Wilcox are better than Green. People should be screaming for more minutes from Wilcox!Barbosa has looked really good and he has the quickness to stay with the younger teams. Jason Terry has looked old (and he is) and courtney lee and jeff green have not made their expected leaps in play. was this unrealistic, yes. will they get there, maybe.
I'm putting the blame on JEFF GREEN. He was supposed to be able to score 12-18 points a night and grab decent number of rebounds.

On green, I'd just like to see them play him extended minutes at the 3. He gets aggressive offensively and defensively going up against other 3's, his best stretchs, and he's had a few here and there, have come when against a SF.

He was supposed to be able to score 12-18 points a night and grab decent number of rebounds.Maybe he would, but not by standing around in the corner.He just looks lost out there to me. The Celtics are like a band all trying to play/learn their respective parts to may nice music . Practice is painfully making some of them better. I think JET and LEE and WILCOX and SULLY "GET IT" and will help the the big three., down the road anyway.Green on the otherhand is not on same sheet of music , he looks as lost on both sides of the ball. I cringe when I see him in there. Well, I cringe too, when I see Bass come in when KG sits. BASS and WILCOX/DARKO need to enter the game at the same time. This is not rocket science, we would do this good coaching playing CITY LEAGUE.Maybe its me, but anytime Green does something good, it is almost by accident.
