Barbosa is the fantasy go to.

Pierce is now an all star

What's the extent of the injury? Full ACL tear, or partial? Damage to any of the other ligaments?

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
Please, Rondo, please get better soon. Wish you luck.

I hope this team takes this as a wake up call and not the other way around...
I like Marcus Smart

Well it was a fun run, folks.  Here's to the rebuild!  Lets hope this one doesn't last 20 years like the last one.

Get well soon, Rajon.

This sucks on several levels.
Lost over 360 TP in game 7 of the 2010 finals. Still among the top 3 non-mods with the highest TP-to-post ratio. No shenanigans, all earned. Bow down to the king.

Man, this is tough. Most likely signaling the end of an era. It's been a fun 6 years, it got kinda depressing there towards the end but nonetheless the team has left me with countless memories.

Hopefully the rest of the season won't be a farewell tour for KG and PP, Danny should do the right thing and trade them to a contender for some young pieces. Maybe the Clippers Will take them for Jordan, Butler, Odom and a first.

I wish Rajon a speedy recovery but i'm hoping he's played his last game as a Celtic.

I'm just so glad we have Bradley and Sully going in to this rebuilding stage, two guys that play their hearts out, it's a start but i have a feeling banner 18 is a loooong ways away. Hopefully not 22 years.

So, you want to trade 2 hall of famers, maybe the 2 best players of the past era for scrubs and a pick?

This is more like:

a) the team regroups and plays a good season like the 2008-2009 and Garnett out for the season

b) tanking and getting a good pick. KG and Pierce play next year or retire in green.

Right now, nobody is giving back fair value for KG, PP.

I disagree. Play out the season.

I don't see Pierce or KG getting us any pieces that will bring us back into contention. We will need to be terrible for a couple of years. So, let them retire as Celtics and then hope the ping-pong balls treat us right when the time comes.

I'm sorry but i'm ok with Rondo being out for the year. If we were not going to trade him, then this is an alternative way to have him out. I don't hate rondo, but the team will play better and simple without him. Everyone else will get more touches

Tonight Lee and Bradley were great. Such suffocating defense i love to see. Don't think we really need another guard as i like Barbosa and Terry as the backups.

Great win tonight

No kidding.....

Jeff Green's defense on lebron the entire night has won us this game.  His defense on lebron all night was as good as I have ever seen.

Bradley/Lee combined defense on Wade was no small feat either.
