I agree on the Green-Steam-Machine.. we have to take it easy on expectations.

I would do the Atlanta Deal for Josh Smith. It would make this team instantly freakishly athletic for years to come with Rondo, Avery, Jeff Green, & Smith.

Leon Powe anyone! I bet he would be cheaper and at the very least as effective.

My Trade senario. Trade Rondo for Chris Paul & hopefully with a sign & trade. This makes sense in alot of levels. 1. Chris Paul could win now 2. with KG & Allens cash coming off the books in 2012, we can sign Howard. 3. Howard & Paul want to play together 4. Boston has the "best" Player coach around so thats more attractive. I would not trade Rondo unless its for Paul because he is a better point gaurd & if you trade him who else would play Point.

If for nothing else, Bird wins because of his atittude. He simply deeply hated the opponent especially Magic & the Lakers.

I care.. this will be fun to watch, especially they switch it up & its Different NBA players on the same time. Like Howard and KG playing on the same front line. That would excite me.

Every positive thing Von did he negated with that missed dunk in which he prematurely celebrated. I dont see why ppl really like him. He never really displayed he was a good shooter & sure he could jump, but he's not that great of a driver. Overrated!

Perk didn't inherit that attitude from KG, He's always been a in your face guy. As a matter of fact KG & perk almost got into it back when KG was with Sota.

I really dont see much in Avery Bradley. He almost seems like Tony Allen to me. He doesnt have the best dribble, Athletic, Good defender, & not the best scorer from what I've seen.

Call me crazy, but I dont really think it is that hard to look back. I didn't take the loss as bad as I thought. Maybe its because I knew we were to injured to win it all, but mostley because the Heat are a better team at this part of the season. All props to the Heat. I especially like the fact how humble they were, that was appreciated.

If i could give him a kick in the shin followed by a punch in the ear, it would make my year.
Lackey's a joke! He just really pisses me off. Thank god he pitched good.
This is what I said before, with Dice-K your kind of rolling the dice (pun intended). He can pitch a gem from time to time, its kind of 50/50 or close to that. With Lackey he some hows manages to stay in a game for 6 innings & give you 6 innings of crap time after time. All while saying he had a pretty good game. Lackey is a joke... Dice-K is just a fucking tease!
With all that said I am glad there is a team that started 2-9 and won 95 games! I just hope it can be done in the East
I still dont think anyone has to gell aside from the pitcher and Catcher. To counter your argument. I think "most" players know their rolls & I def. think everyone on this team knows their roll. I dont think a batter at the plate is thinking of what to do with a curve ball because so & so is on deck. For instance I dont think Ellsbury is going to change his approach dramaticlly whether he's hitting 1st, 3rd, or 7th. He is still going to use his speed to get on base, its what he's done his whole life. Big papi isn't going to stop trying to hit home runs because he's hitting 8th vs 4th or 5th nor is he going to try and lay down bunts if he's hitting 1st or 9th. Now I do agree there are fundamental adjustments depending the situation in the game. I.e youk might have to bunt in the 9th inning of a game with 0 outs and down 1 to get a runner to 3rd, but that has nothing to do with "gelling" or team chemistry thats all execution. The Gelling on Defense is not "alot" Scutoro and pedroia played together for a good amount of the year last year. Youk moving to third is just as good as beltre & Adrian at first is better or at the very least the same as youk. The only place you could say something on defense is left field with Crawford due to the Wall and Ellsburys inexperience with him, but thats not going to cause dropped balls nor is it the reason the sox are 2-9. My point is the Skid is do to the horrible offense with runners on & the terrible pitching. Simple as that. I do not expect the offense or pitching to be as bad as they are now.
This makes no sense, I'm not buying this at all. Baseball is not like basketball or football where you depend on the team to gel. The only two who need to gel are the catcher and pitcher, other than that you hit on your own with no teamates help & for the most part you field on your own. Theres no real "team work" that goes on in baseball, its not like basketball when you have to opperate as one UNIT on defense or fastbreaks or like in football when everyone has to be on the same page just for one guy to get open. NOT buying this. But i do think the sox will get out this funk, just not because "there Gelling".
I can say sweep with Those two pitching. Even tho you might get a gem from Dice-K. You just know lackey will give you 6 inning of crap, but 6 inning non the less.
He was probably on steroids
I'm really not that worried about shaq. I'm certain He'll play in the playoffs.

More like herpes. Nicknames can go away but will always flare up every once in a while.

You could make the case that this is a product of a low down presence like Shaq. Even though my eyes dont say that recently .

I will simply do nothing, because I never knew what to expect from him from game to game. I didnt know if i was going to boo him or cheer for him, so it's fitting that I just stand there and do nothing.
