we need a big who can power his way down low and shoot those 7 foot shots off the glass. what ever happened to those typed of bigs? KG never gets that far down low. too weak in the legs probably.

also, something nobody here has yet to discuss is PP took a 3 that was NOT needed in OT and missed instead of just getting 2 and really put us behind the 8 ball and forced green to shoot his 3. we got lucky there. i think we were down by 3 at that point. plenty of time to get two and a stop. we really rolled the dice today. and escaped.

Totally unforgivable. Forget wanting to trade him, I'd waive him tomorrow morning for taking such an unnecessary shot.

no difference. they all do it. PP just cannot do it the way LBJ does or even as often as KObe IMO. he takes a ton of unecessary shots nowadays it seems. oh well. just glad we pulled this fiasco out.

everyone wants to trade him when they think he's washed up.  Nobody wants to trade him when they think he still has it.

It doesn't work that way.  The only way you get a little value out of trading PIerce is if he can continue to play like this.   Nobody is giving up assets for a washed up has-been.

Liar. He is not getting waived, ever, by the Celtics.

Not many bigs hit clutch shots close to the basket....mainly due to getting absolutely swamped by double and triple teams. All about spacing the floor for a jumpshot or a drive.

Did you just say PP cant do it the way LBJ does? Are you talking about hitting CLUTCH SHOTS?
I have reason to believe that PP has hit more Clutch shots than Lebron has....

It doesn't work that way.  The only way you get a little value out of trading PIerce is if he can continue to play like this.   Nobody is giving up assets for a washed up has-been.

From the names floated out there, we're not getting value either way.  Therefore, hold on to him.

I think the only way we trade him is if we get a GREAT value. And the only way people will trade for him is if they get it at a GREAT value.

Can't work both ways unless... no.
