He was on the Dennis and Callahan show this morning and mentioned how the C's need someone to run the offense off the bench.  Said Rondo can't play all 48 mins and run the team effectively and that someone else needs to step up and have the ability to run the offense while Rondo gets some rest.

Obviously a big man is the most pressing need, but do we also need a backup PG? or should we stick with Terry and tell him to be more aggressive?

What backup pg's would you be interested in ?

Amazing how rondo has never had a true backup.  At this point, they can't just bring in another guy in an already crowded back court.  If they can swing a trade, and I doubt there would be much interest in lee, barbosa, or terry, then that would make the most sense.

I think they'll give Bradley a chance to fulfill that role, as well as get time at the 2.

Bradley is not a PG, he just has a PGs body.

Doc has been saying this all year.  It surprises me, because I think Terry is a pretty good backup PG, but Doc doesn't want to play him there.

He is still trying to squeeze Terry into Ray role. 



I agree, give Terry the ball when he comes off the bench.

Yeah, I am not a Doc basher, but this is one place where I have a real problem.  He needs to do a better job of working the system around the players he has, and stop trying to hold on to the past.  And that goes for some of the players too.

Doc is making a fool out of himself, and keeps giving me reasons to doubt if he's the man for the job.

Nothing he's done this season has made any sense.

It will be interesting to hear what Danny has to say about this team (in about 13 minutes).

No problem, based on your conclusions we should have about 5 roster spots to work with.

This backup point guard excuse has worn a little thin.  It seems like it's always an issue, but in just the last three years Boston has had Keyon Dooling, E'Twaun Moore, Carlos Arroyo, Nate Robinson and Eddie House to take the job.  None of those guys are great, but somebody out of that group should have been able to do the job.  I mean, frickin' Nate Robinson is now playing 21 minutes a game with Thibs in Chicago.

I think the back up PG issues have as much to do with what Doc wants out of that job as the available players.

This is our best option. Unless we trade Lee/Terry and Barbosa along with Bass and or Green for a big and a backup. Our back court is crowded enough as it is.

Yes clearly another bench player is what we need ::)
