  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
During the game, I heard one of the commentators talking about how rare it is for teams to find a player that is both capable and willing to inflict full court pressure for the duration of a whole game. Then he was talking about how Boston was so lucky to have not just 1 of those, but 2 - Courtney Lee and Fab Melo.


I think that this added dimension to the Celtics is what could potentially put us over the top.
I like Marcus Smart

  • GOT IT!!!
This is a big reason Ainge has to be weary of trading one of them for a big. You are losing one hole to plug another.

At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

How long can they keep this up is the question.. We still have 33 games, and the playoffs will be a harder test..
I hope they stay healthy, at least..

  • You say when......
Full court pressure, called "The Press" is ALWAYS a pain, and if ALL sign in to it...you can get a lot of steals, cause infighting, and chaos on the other team.....doc is doing good at last..! We have the guys to do it...barbosa, Lee, Bradley, they are like killer bees....!!! KG in the back, for the full court high passes...pp....this type of adjustment can turn the tides of many a game..!!! The other team will adjust, try to pass it up....stay on them, it ruins their plans though....pros get tired too..!

GQ hairdo? Not following. We saw healthy rondo and Bradley together for only 6 games this season...they won them all....not to mention the other 6 years we had a great d with rondo starting

Annoying

If we traded Lee, could they pick up Delonte and have similar production?
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

No.  Delonte's too fragile to press an entire game and stay healthy.  Also, the Delonte in Boston era is over.  They could have brought him back at any time they wanted, and I doubt they ever picked up the phone.
