The straw that broke the camels back...no pun intended
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:43:57 PM »
I was against "blowing it up" as that never usually works out. I believed this team could still be very competetive and make a decent playoff run.

However, I feel this Sully injury sadly is going to force Ainge into a move. Not sure what it will be but when you lose two starters on a .500 team it's tough to sit still. Not sure what it will be but I can't see Danny NOT making a move now.

Suddenly healthy players got their minutes, and Doc Rivers job became easier, we will keep the pace to .500 and got an early first tround exit.. again another boring season

Hope I am wrong.

I actually think Sully probably would have come back this season but management went ahead and told him to just get the surgery done so this back business can be done with.

We should sign a center.  It would be nice to have a center.  Most teams have centers. 

Poor Darko bailed on us too early.

Blow it up, the gig is up.  Sooner we accept it and start the sooner we will gain assets.

I honestly don't think a C would help.  KG is better than most C in the league.  Lots of teams are stuck with a PF playing C these days.   What is this C you speak of?  There are maybe one or two in draft and a hand full in the league.   I don't see any that could help us.   Maybe Oden is he was healthy but that is not a good chance.

Darko was a dud and always has been.  He could not break into the rotation.   He looks like a player and was drafted high but he is very mediocre.

I hate the thought of losing PP and KG but I also would like to see them have a chance to win another title and block Ray!

Looks like injuries are what's going to force Danny's hand.

We were the classic tough on paper team derailed by injuries.  It was a helluva run!

I don't think so at all.  Sullinger's performance this year was a bonus; he's a rookie.  The whole thing wasn't riding on Sullinger.  No biggie.

Rondo...I think we're going to get to watch better basketball without him on the floor due to the talent of everyone else.  We lost one weapon and sharpened 4 others.  I think it's a net positive...

But if we can flip Rondo for Gortat and Dragic, I think we have a bit more than a puncher's chance.  We have a lot of talent that hasn't been used so far this year, save for a spurt here and there.

If that is all we can get for Rondo I'll pass, thanks. I agree Rondo held the ball to much, but Doc could have stepped up and said something to him about it if he wanted too.

I'm betting by the trade dead line people are going to be saying "this sucks we have no PG, no one can bring the ball up!"

Once we start playing teams that are trying to win games, they will scout this and make life harder on us. And please don't give me the Miami game BS, even a fat chick gets laid once in a while.
