Any notice how things are starting to click together. Sure its been slow but our defensive rotations are not the easiest to learn and we've started the season with many new players, injured sg and 2 key reserves coming off HEART surgery.
After reading through the many fire doc, fire danny, trade just about everyone on the roster ( burn green at the stake). I'd like everyone to breathe deeply and notice the difference between last game and the start of season. The defensive rotations still are not 100% but they are getting there.
Avery Bradley isn't the sole key to us winning but he is quite important, he is closer to returning. Bradley returns we are deep in the guards spots, JET can get back to his customary instant offense off bench job and Lee becomes 4th guard. Jeff Green is playing limited minutes which seems to have something to do with conditioning/rehab. Green's offensive game is one the best on team. Wilcox another heart patient is slowly showing to be a very capable backup to kg. Sully has gone from start of season rookie who has no clue on defense to a legit backup pf in the league. This is great as he only has a handful of games under his belt and the improvement is only going to get better. I'm not sure if its Sully's play but Bass seems to have raised his work level on rebounding and defense. When Brandon's shot falls it is deadly, he and rondo have the pick and pop down pat. Many times last year and early this year if his shot wasn't falling he wasn't helping us much. His rebounding and defensive efforts are much improved. Of course we expect greatness from rondo (trade him?) Pierce (trade him?) and Garnett. It seems like the rest of the group is coming around, hopefully enough that the three guys previous can take some games off here and there.
Raise our half filled glasses (filled with green kool aid). Let Doc do what he does and work the entire team. Its the playoffs that matter, our defense is getting noticeably better and that is the key, that and health.
