Beating A Team Like Miami Heat Does Not Mean We Are A Contender

But It Only Shows That Even Without Our Best PG In The East We Can Still Win This One

The Only Thing I'm Bothered Is Lebron James Attacks The Rim Twice Without Any Help

And Chris Bosh Also Without Any Help, I Think The Idea Of Putting A Big Man At The Middle In Our Teams Really Helps

And It Somehow Solves Our Problem At The Rim

Without Loosing Everyone, Should We Trade Lee Or Terry Since Rondo Is Gone?

For Me It's A No, Just Get A Center, No One In Our Team Has A Value

So The Possible Players That We Can Get And Trade For Is

Brandon Bass + Timofey Mozgov + Anthony Randolph = Salaries Are Matched

Add Jason Collins To Leave More Space In Our Roster

Since 2 Roster Spots Are Left (With Jarvis Varnando And Kris Joseph Departures)

Having 2 Big Man Gives Us A Rotation For Brooklyn Nets 5 Big Man

And Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah And Carlos Boozer

We Can Sign For A Veterans Minimum Players

Delonte West As Our Point Guard

Since Jeff Green Goes Power Forward Sometimes With Paul Pierce At The Same Time

Paul Pierce Needs A Back-Up SF

Either Tracy Mcgraddy Or Someone Like Allen Iverson

I Know As Rajan Rondo Is Gone

Players Can Create There Own Shots

Jason Terry

Courtney Lee

Avery Bradley

Leandro Barbosa


Avery Bradley

Courtney Lee

Paul Pierce

Kevin Garnett

Timofey Mozgov


Delonte West

Jason Terry / Leandro Barbosa

Jeff Green / Any Small Forwards Veterans Minimum

Jared Sullinger / Anthony Randolph

Chris Wilcox / Fab Melo

In This Case I Still Don't Need To Panic

There's Always A Solution

I'm Not Pushing My Panic Button Yet

We Can Win These

Offensive Tempo

With Rajan Rondo Out

My Only Problem Is Chris WIlcox And Avery Bradley

I Hope These 2 Players Can Create There Own Shots

I'm Still On Winning And Making It To The Playoffs

Lastly Rajan Rondo At His Best When Playoffs Comes

But Remember Last Year We Beat The Atlanta Hawks Without Rajan Rondo

Without Courtney Lee And Jason Terry

With Joe Johnson On The Atlanta Hawks

I Trust Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Leandro Barbosa, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green

Play Better Or Be Traded

No Need To Panic Just Watch And Enjoy The Game

Rebounds Kills Us But Offensive Will Definitely Kill You

I'm Routing On Leandro Barbosa And Courtney Lee

Just Hope Philadelphia 76ers Keep On Loosing

But I Know We Can Win This Trust Our Players

7'th Or 8'th Or 6'th Seed In The East

Relax. Don't panic. The pressure is completely off. Same thing if this happened to Miami, New York, the Lakers or OKC, any NBA team for that matter. If you lose your best player, the pressure comes off. It's only fair to the rest of the team.

We still hold the last spot in the East. The pressure is off. We're not dead yet, we're just wounded. And we'll be back.

The C's will be well-positioned for the 2030 draft and this little cutie:

Panic is useless.   Come up with a plan and commit to it.

What is it about Rondo's injury that brings out the people who post with very odd punctuation and diction? 

This post is like a terrible high school poem.

If folks are worried about this team after that huge win over miami then u are not paying close attention.

Lee and avery d was great
Barbosa was beast!
And about time paul got that fire lit under his behind..
Great passin from kg

Magic said we were not a playoffs team  without rondo and he is wrong
We have too much talent

I don't think we can win a championship.  However, 29 franchises won't win a title this year.  I say just enjoy watching a couple of first ballot Hall of Famers in their twilight years.

Yeah with Rondo's injury its time, the only question is will the C's get reasonable offers to entice them to part with the big pieces.

Did anyone catch the reaction of the heat players and coach? I know people around here think rondo sucks but they were shocked in a way we were when rose went out for the year....sorry folks the chances were slim with rondo, one of the leagues premiere postseason stars and now they're nonexistent...period! Panic? nope just a painful reality

Let other teams come the the Celtics with offers.  If they are decent, counter offer.  If not, move on.

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

Blow it up. It's over.

What's over?  Most people didn't think we had much of a shot at a title even before the Rondo injury.  I still think we have the best shot to knock of the Heat in the Eastern Conference playoffs, even now that our star point guard is gone. 

I posted some of those reasons in another thread, but I'll give a brief summary of them again:

Jeff Green defending Lebron James.

Paul Pierce as a point forward.

KG actually playing in the post against the Heat.

A disruptive, speed defense as opposed to a power defense. 

Good guard depth, with a couple of them being good, disruptive defenders. 

I understand that I'm being highly optimistic to think that we can beat Miami in the playoffs, but I'd still like to see this team give it a try.  I still think we match up well against them. 

What do we have to lose?  With the Rondo injury, next year is kind of a perfect opportunity for that tank year that everybody has been clamoring for.  Let Rondo sit out the full season to really recover.  Then we are reloaded for 2014-2015 and beyond with Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sully, Melo (hopefully, he pans out) our lottery pick, and  whatever other pieces Ainge manages to throw into the mix between now and then.  We'll even have some cap space to play with by then.

Don't blow this up, Danny.  There's absolutely no need to panic.
