Just say no to West.  There is a reason a guy of his caliber is not on a team.  He is completely whacko, that's why.

If Delonte hasn't played since last April wouldn't he be pretty far off from game shape?  Isn't that an issues since we need someone right away?  Or is the consensus that he could use march / april to get in shape before the playoffs?

Well, if you put it this way there may just be nothing to get in shape for. Things change when the Atlantic Division is no longer a slam dunk.

And that's one endearing trait that I like about delonte. He just loves the city of Boston and the city loves him back. Doc and the team have trusted him in the past.

I would love Delonte. He's familiar with our team/scheme. He plays hard. His combo style would be a good fit on the heavy ball movement/motion offense we are running now. He has familiarity playing with Terry, which he would be paired with coming off the bench. Plus, he doesn't have Wafer to beat up.

We are desperate if we sign West, plays hard but not stable and completely unreliable from a fragile standpoint.

Ditto

For continuity's sake and for the mental health of Garnett and the vets (as Garnett himself said, losing players is a beating in the head), we'd either have to pass on him or get another backup.

If we get another backup, we'd have to clear space for a big.

I would take Delonte out of the litter of choices. Better than other guys out there, Knows the system as well.

And there's a reason the Cs are looking at him: he's available and knows the system and players.
Way I see it, it's likely West or Arroyo. I'd be happy with either on a 10 day contract.

We wasted Arroyo the first time, because of Doc's prejudice...

We want him to play ball not to watch our kids.

The reverse Ray Allen trade would be almost complete. Green, West, and then we would need to bring Wally back. :P
