I love these. Sully vs. Bradley. Sully vs. Green. Bass vs. Lee.
How about this...
Do we like a future lineup of Rondo/Bradley/Green/Sully?
Do we like the idea of a future bench core that includes Lee and Bass?
Are we excited to see how these talents complement and support the KG/Pierce/Rondo core this year and next?
Heck, Danny should be GM of the year.
Are we surprised that all of these pieces that just came together this year didn't magically mesh together in an instant?
Something tells me we have a few more 5+ game win streaks in us coming up, and everyone will look good at some point.
If Green is on this team in the future and even worse in the starting lineup, you have the perfect recipe for mediocrity. The four core players you list feature one near superstar, one great defensive guard, a potential regular double double guy and a guy who has underachieved his entire career, never been consistent, and half the time plays like he is afraid of his shadow. That core four is not something I look forward to.
Hang on, Vin - Let me adjust my green goggles.
I see Rondo leading the league in assists (nearly),
Bradley being an all-NBA 1st team defender,
Sully leading the league in rebounds (nearly),
and Green, with his rounded game, as a super-talent complement to any star player we can nail.
I could see those guys combining for an average of at least 50pts, 20rbs, and 15 asst with 2-4 stl, plus the bench and Center.
With a star Center, we have a heck of a lineup, and quite nearly our current starting unit (subbing Green for Pierce, and KG for Star Center to be Named Later).
So if you like the current team and think Green could provide an aged-Pierce level of production (about 5 more points and 2 more assists/36 than he puts up now), then both Green and Sully join Bradley and Rondo as key future pieces.
