Mid season pick ups of waived vetrans is not going to turn this team into a contender. Its pretty simple really, we need a big man who can be a post threat, rebound and protect the rim.
We need a star.

Doesn't fall off trees. Celtics need a semi-star. A Gortat/Nene/Robin Lopez type talent

I believe he is happy with his roster.



And I believe he is going to try and make moves to make himself even happier with his roster.


Running the Clippers with Redz.

Right.  He is happy, but not content.

Since when is Robin Lopez a semi-star? I'd honestly take Stiemsma over him.


Starters: D.Rose - W.Matthews - N.Batum - T.Gibson - J.Noah
Reserves: J.Nelson - A.Bradley - J.Butler - B.Diaw - M.Raduljica

Since he destroyed the sleeping C's the other night. 

Lopez is a decent player on a bad team, and a relatively intriguing prospect for the future.  But he is nowhere close to a star.  Although, I do think he is approaching the level of Gortat (who isn't a star either).

yeah , despert as the C's are for a KG backup , even Lopezs look amazing ....

I think Fab Melo can be good as the Lopezs  in 1-2 years.... but not sure what to do till then. ???

I don't see Lopez even developing that much.  he's just another low-talent player able to look like an all-star against our lackluster frontcourt

Agreed -- I don't see R.Lopez as a future Gortat type either.

Offensively, I think Robin Lopez can already replicate what Gortat does but I don't think R.Lopez will become the defender or rebounder that Gortat is.

I am pretty disappointed in R.Lopez' development so far so I am not optimistic about him growing his game all that much in the future. I think he'll continue to be a well below average but passable starter to high quality backup center.
