Rondo>>>Bradley>>Lee>Barbosa>West>Terry(since we dont use him properly :-\)

So yea, I would rather have him than Terry for Doc but this is not necessary since he'll only get garbage time. I'd rather focus on getting a big via a small trade (like a package of Terry+Bass+pick for a top 15 big
Jameer an elite PG?Please, ask that to his garbage highlights.

You know he has been available all year right?  And not a single team wants him. 

I like the guy, but he just can't stay healthy.

I suggested it because we have 2 roster spots and he was decent in his last time here with us. He knows our system.

when delonte was on the cavs, doc rivers told him "you're on the wrong team."

When was Delonte a failure? The guy can flat out ball... I'd welcome him with open arms, again.

I had this discussion with someone the other day. For as much of a knucklehead as he was off the court, the guy was consistent as hell on the court. These so-called "role models" like fly around like jets when they make meaningless 12 footers play scared...

If salaries matched, I'd trade Green for Delonte. If healthy, as least you know you have a baller.

Bringing in another decent player to go along with all of our other decent players won't make any positive difference.  And it could lead to chemistry issues on he court and in the locker room.

Pass.

He was a failure because his presence disrupted the locker room and he got in trouble with the law while here. Add to that the fact that he can't stay healthy.

Did he get in trouble with the law while here? I don't recall... seemed to me that all his law problems occurred during his stay in other teams, but I may be mistaken.

Barbosa is 100X's > West

No. No. NO!

Delonte is and always will be one of my least favorite Celtics of all time.

Yeah they're trying to bring Walt Disney back to! So far no pulse. Stay tuned. Old favorites never die here, just the Teams.
