Tommy mentioned on TV in his ramblings and under his breath , the long minutes the second unit was pulling was on purpose to jell the second squad.

, when a team is abusing the Celtics inside drivng every time down court on KG by himself and the short second team .... I just can't help but think Darko looming in the paint might not SLOW DOWN some of those on slaughts . 

If he comes in and ENFORCES and makes people pay for playing in the paint and fouls out might be at least SOMETHING... other than getting destoryed inside by every young and tall team out there.

DArko played great in IMO in preseason appearances .  I though he made a NICE impact , made the other teams shoot outside jumpers and got us back in the games.

He must be hurt.

Don't need Darko, with Sully playing the way he is, and Wilcox chipping in too. We looked good today, and keep looking better each game we play. Lots of improvement on the inside D. We're not there yet, but at least you'll see new players pointing to where other players should be on D a bit more often, showing that they not only know their own spot, but theirs as well.

We're getting there, step by step, and I don't think adding Darko will make things easier.

The unsolved mystery of 2012/2013 season Doc putting Darko in the doghouse after tremendous pre-season.

I'm fine with it. He's not the difference maker in our blow out losses.

But I think he would've made the difference in some of those loses we've had.  He showed a lot of promise preseason...

Jeff Green played really well in the preseason as well.

I just think our problems run much deeper than Darko being the answer.

i agree. the way the celtics defenders let other players go to the basket was one key. darko would have fouled out in no time trying to prevent those baskets.

i wish darko was still here, but he would not have made a real difference.

I'm not buying that. Celtics best years in last 5 were when they legitimate size in their front court. Even last year it was evident any scrubs with size can make an impact. Darko is a lot better player than either Stiemsma or Hollins.

I think it's a stretch to think we are a Darko away from fixing our problems.

Darko wouldn't be "the difference maker" right now, but I agree that he'd fill a gaping hole on our team.

I don't know what happened behind the scenes, but from the outside looking in Darko should have been given a spot in the rotation.

D. West / R. Anderson / C. Copeland
L. Deng / K. Singler / D. Rudez

This. I can't say I'm a big fan of Jason Collins right now.  At this point I wouldn't mind Doc putting in Fab and telling him "When you foul out you're out. And if you go ten minutes without a block or 5 minutes without a rebound you're out. Whatever comes first. So just play"

Oh I'm with this 100%. I hate how Collins is our starting center, if we are going to run out a 7 foot stiff, why not a young 7 foot stiff with potential?
