So, are we going to trade for a point guard
« on: January 27, 2013, 06:11:54 PM »
using one of Jet/Lee/Barbosa? or even Bass?

if we don't, then we'll have to rely on PP to organize offense, but he's a bit TO prone at this age, don't think overloading him is a good idea.

if we do, then who's available?

Not needed, but wouldn't be surprised if they did.

If they move anyone, I hope it's Terry.  I do not have any desire to see any of our young pieces moved in a pointless trade.

They'll add a guard but they probably won't play ahead of our current guards.

We're okay without a PG. Lee/Bradley/Barbosa/Terry/Pierce all can take turns.

No.

Did we lose tonight or something? even if we did, we don't need a pure pg.

What we need is for bradley and lee to play great defense consistently , nail open jump shots and take on duties 50/50 to carry the ball and make simple effective passes

i have all the confidence in the world they will do it

Dont think we need to. It definatley limits our trading possibilities because we will most likely need the guards now.

Giving Barbosa 15-20 mins a night now will be good. Give us that sprak energy. He attacks the basket and can draw a few fouls.

Then dive the other 15-20 mins among lee bradley terry. Maybe now Doc will start using jet like he should be used off the the dribble.

Dont see us trading for another PG but like i said. Will hinder our ability to get a Big

I'd rather go with the current four healthy guards and pick up a D-League guy on a ten-day contract.

go after Lowry from the Raptors.
Not sure what they'd want.

He's only 5 million on the books and is a borderline All Star.
Actually has a higher PER than Rondo.

They'd want something big in return- wonder if Danny can get it done.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

It would be a wast of a trade for what we really need. Still need either a Big to help KG out on the boards and help defense. And or a three point shooter to spread the floor.

If you see we almost got beat because we could grab a rebound and they trapped because they didn't have to worry about threes from the corners.

Remember Rondo will most likely be back by next season, and AB,Lee,Terry,Barbosa,PP, and Green can run the point by comity.

So I say go BIG or go home...

Who would you give up for Lowry though? He's pretty strong do you think him and Rondo could play at the same time next year?
