And, I think that is partly down to Doc Rivers for failing to open up the offense more this year and get more out of an offensively talented supporting cast.how though Terry looks cooked, Green looks scared, Lee hustles but cant make a shot, Rondo does not score and isn't aggressive unless were getting our butts handed to us
I disagree that Jason Terry is cooked. I think he is still capable of doing what he has done in recent years. I also believe that Courtney Lee and Jeff Green in addition to Jason Terry and Avery Bradley + star players in Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce give the Celtics multiple ball-handlers on the perimeter. Ball-handling, ball movers and some shot making. Guys who can make plays.
If the offense was less Rondo-centric, I think the team could get more out of those players individually and as a whole.
And if Doc could get Rondo to understand that the team would be better if Rondo could score a little more instead of passing (like J-Kidd did when he went to New Jersey), that would be great.
Similar to how Popovich opened up the Spurs offense when San Antonio went away from it's two bigs defensive orientated system to more skilled offensive players surrounding Duncan/Parker (Garnett/Rondo). Power forwards with jump-shooting ability. Drive and kick game based around quick penetrating PG. Multiple perimeter players who can make some plays at a moderate level.
