why blow it up? So after games we can all make comment about glimpes of potential that certain players showed or didnt show?
I'd rather apreciate our hall of famers and (current) all stars Pierce and Garnett in their final years whilst staying competitive.
We already have some good pieces to build around and i dont see any reason to 'blow it up' and cross our fingers that we get the #1 pick.
Why blow it up? Because being a mediocre team is the worst thing you can be in sports. No high draft picks and no legit championship contention. We are not going to get either, this team is what it is a .500 team.
.500 teams don't win championships and don't get young assets. Jared and Sully are nice complementary players, but they haven't shown me anything that would lead me to believe that they could be superstars.
High Draft Picks = Better chance at landing a franchise players
Franchise Players = Championships
PP and KG are old. Rondo is inconsistant. Something needs to be done. Period. We go ALL in or ALL out, you can't drive straight at a fork. You drive straight and you get this a .500 team with no shot at a championship.
For every team that blows it up and hits big in the lottery, there are two mediocre teams who didnt and thus reamin stuck in 500 % mediocrity.
The teams that do blow it up and go for the lottery dont always pan out. Wizards/Bobcats/Kings/Bucks to name a few.
Free Agency and Trade are the biggest tools for building a contender.
We have Assets to trade, and Danny is very good at drafting middle to late 1st round. Build around them or sell them high with expiring contracts (which he will have, and/or can aquire like he did with theo ratliff/wally szerb) for more talent.
Pierce & KG are old, no question. They were old in 2010 when they went to the finals, they were old last year when they went to game 7. It's not a valid argument because old has proven to win. and theese guys are still performing at a high level.
Sure... rondo's scoring is inconsistant, but when your talking about running an offense, his as good and consistant as it gets. his a tripple double threat every night. his a top 10 talent and definitly someone you can build around.
right now the team is strugling but the team has too much talent not to go on a run, and come play off time theres not a single team in the east that wants to play boston in a 7 game series, home court or not.
