We won 5/6 games and Avery Bradley began to emerge.

This time? I speculate maybe Courtney Lee can do something similar. He's a talented guy and plays good D. God forbid Jeff Green steps up but we all know it's nice to dream

I think that we're really going to appreciate Barbosa.

Well that's a given, we already do. But yeah he's definitely going to get some more playing time as well. I have a real feeling Doc is going to use Courtney Lee a lot though. Out of the new guys we picked up, he seems to have the most upside. JET looks good in flashes but I speculate what we see from him is likely what we're going to get, unless he turns it on during the second half of the year (like veterans like to do).

Also, it sucks that Rondo couldn't extend the streak past 2nd place, but at the same time I do think he was passing up scoring opportunities to look for the dish. It burned us a few times, and almost burned us a few others. I think the suspension is actually going to help the club

  • Boston Celtics= Championships, nothing less.
Pierce always steps up at point forward, thank God it's only two games on his old corpse.
Danny Ainge tried to get CP3 & David West to add to KG, Pierce and Ray Allen. Just Imagine if the stars had aligned...

I think we're going to appreciate his limitations more than his play.

I think we are more likely to lose the next two, than run off a streak. This team has a lot of issues right now, and not having Rondo only makes it worse.

Maybe Rondo knew we needed a spark and thought this is what could help us out? I dunno.

Either way, it should be a good time. Barbosa plays at full speed at all times, and if he's flawed (and he is), it makes you appreciate what Rondo brings to the team.

I never understand the criticisms of JET, he has been much more consistent than most of the guys on the team and is shooting the ball VERY well from all over. He has never been very good as a defender so that shouldn't come up (he is what he is). The only complaint I have (anyone should have), is that he is reluctant to shoot, he needs to put up a lot more shots a game! When Jet takes 2 shots in like a game and a half at times, that isn't going to cut it and I put most of that blame on Doc and the way he draws up an offense (he is used like Ray was but gets far less shots)... when you are shooting like Jet is, your teammates (*cough* PP at times this season) need to stop chucking shots and get it to you.

  FWIW we got stomped both games he was suspended last year as well.

We did? I don't remember. We won the game he got suspended during the playoffs! Also, I remember RR not missing many games last season and I think we won the great majority of them.

Savvy veterans know how to get in someone's face without losing multiple games in the process. Even if he wanted to get tossed to spark the team, there are ways to do this without begging for a suspension. Rondo still has a lot to learn.
