Cedric Maxwell was on weei yesterday and said Rondo told him that he is getting tired of having to be the enforcer for the C's. He said Rondo told him " I'm 6'1 , why am I the one who has to play the enforcer role for this team?"

Completely agree with Rondo , Danny needs to get a real enforcer in here quick .

Hard to argue with this one. Many threads I have replied to have answers that can fall under this category as well.

We havent had an enforcer and have been soft since Perk left.  Also Ive writen this many times, it looks like everyone is just going through the motions out there. No one except KG and sometimes Rondo, terry and wilcox some of the time are playing with any emotion, attitude, or intensity. Its painful to watch all our players run around like zombies out there. We need that attitude back, especially int he middle. Soft is almost an understatement.

Okay so Pierce, Bass, Terry and KG was also on the floor.  Who is the enforcer there if Rondo isn't?  Bass?  I just don't see how this specific incident ends any differently.  Rondo was closest to it and had the highest emotion, obviously.

On this, I blame Doc - before I realized that Wilcox was sick, I thought Doc was sending Collins to be a goon because of all the physical play.  I thought wrong I guess.  As Pop would say - We need to see a little of the nasty.  The coach needs to command hard fouls if necessary.

Indirect jab at Bass and Green! Two Celtics that have been with the team prior to this season that have been acting soft.


Danny needs to make that J.Smith deal happen.

Still wondering why we didnt play Darko. Was he really that bad?

He seemed to be "OK" in preseason.

Darko was that man,  he knew it and said stated  HE WOULD "DO whatever the Team asked of him " ... SO WHY wasn't he given a chance Doc????????????????????????????

RIVERS ??????????????? what is the deal.... WHY no DARKO ??

I think COmrade RIVERS is the SOFT person on the team. He doesn't point fingers and demand results. Lifes tuff, act tuff and act like the 80 million your employeer is sending matters.

Rivers could use a little CLint Eastwood in his life. He seems to have dropped off into some off never -never land of basketball.

All this Rondo mess is on DOC RIVERS ...for failing to play DARKO , failing to get tuff bigs on the team and playing some silly version of College small ball .

WYC and DAnny ...PLEASE GET Glen Rivers's MINDS RIGHT  ::)

I'm on Rondos side... Doc and Jeff Green should just go to camp and hold hands and sing peace songs.

You can't play a bruiser for 48 minutes per game in case an altercation goes down once or twice a season.

I want the most talented guys out there as much as possible. Enforcers generally are not that talented.

And we had the best enforcer we could buy at that price in Darko. It's really too bad he never got a chance.

My thoughts exactly. I was really hoping to see Darko in this role. Its unfortunate.

It's gotta be Bass as The Enforcer. 

Green is too passive.  Wilcox is too nice.  KG and Pierce are too old and too important to the team night-in, night-out.  Terry and Barbosa are too small.  Sully is too young and already gets fouls for breathing on guys.  He'd get suspended for the season if he shoved a guy.  Collins used to tussle a bit, but he's glued to the pine most nights.

Lee could certainly stand to be more aggressive, but I don't think he's the enforcer type. 

I would LOVE to see Pierce and KG gets in guys' faces to support their teammates and tussle a bit (tech worthy, not suspension worthy), but they've been playing soft all year.  They both look two steps slower than last year.

Ainge needs to have Bass watch the McHale take down of Rambis over and over and over and over...

That's how you protect the rim.
