People don't realize how much Ray Allen bogs down the offense. He offensive sets are super slow and clock-consuming. Also, his penetration is severely limited and he has a tendency to overdribble. Love and respect to Ray, but the Celtics' offense puts too much stock in Ray Allen. He has always been the most efficient Celtic, but at the age of 36, the Celtics' offense hasn't adjusted to Ray's new limitations. The offense was pretty smooth without him. Sorry, Ray. You must be reduced to a 3-and-D guy.

Avery can become one of the NBA's best back-up PGs. His defense is already there. All he needs to do is... 1. perfect a mid-range jump shot 2. attack empty space in the defense when it's there 3. always push the ball on offense 4. learn how to use screens to make a play He's already moving off the ball surprisingly well.

Celtics will take this one by 10 points easily. Stop the Frye and Dudley 3 point shot and you win. JO will limit Marcin Gortat. Steve Nash will have little to pass to. Our offense will struggle but Avery and E'twaun have played good PG defense so far this season.

Out of bounds--Miami ball.

Wilcox was great also. Deserves more than one mention. The versatility of our 5 bigs is ridiculous...I love it! E'twaun Moore is a FIGHTER.

Thanks for uploading this. Bass, Wilcox, and Marquis are gonna be huge off the bench. They look comfortable and ready to go. E'twaun has good potential for a 2nd rounder. Looks like he's not afraid to get dirty in the NBA. Keyon, Avery, and JJJ seemed so tentative it made me cringe lol.

Magic got ripped off. Another genius move by Danny. Bass has a good future with an easy-to-fit contract in 2012. If Baby fixed his conditioning and personality issues, he could contend for sixth-man of the year. We gave him a chance to fix those two things and he never did. Now he's overpaid for the next four years. JJJ and Bass are a great future at the PF position. Bradley has tons of untapped potential. Celtics have their picks still plus the Clippers pick. Add the ability to sign a max contract and more in 2012...wow...Danny has planned this perfectly. We got Marquis and Keyon Dooling for the bench all on one-year deals to retain that cap room. Man...I know Danny gets a lot of hate but seriously...he's a genius and I love what he seems to be planning.

Celtics can offer Delonte a maximum of 1 year at around the vet's minimum. They would be happy to resign Delonte for that immediately. The difference is contenders would happily offer Delonte an extra year and an extra million from MLE. That's the issue with Delonte resigning with Celtics: Boston needs to retain cap room. I'm sure Danny wants Delonte, but he can't give him quite the cash or years other teams can.

I posted why this is BS in another news story: So OKC trades Green for Perk. Why would they trade him back while sidegrading or arguably downgrading at the point? Broussard is trolling everyone. Plus, why is he reporting this now? Not to mention, I don't even think you can trade back for your own player within 6 months anyway. Me thinks Broussard is making something out of nothing.

Why oh whyyy would the Celtics sign anybody for more than one year? They will be the only big market team that can get Dwight and Dwight would love going to Boston. Why throw that away? I think DA is just guessing...

Jeff Green is a poor man's Pierce. The difference is Pierce came into the league pretty raw in attitude and Jeff Green is humble and mature. If Green can achieve consistency on the drive and jump shot, he could be the starting SF for a championship team in 2 years. His defense will undoubtedly improve with time. Just look at Von Wafer who plays relatively solid defense whenever he's in there.

Awesome post. I always liked Semih's attitude, and Mike Gormon always defended Semih for it. Sadly, the injuries piled up too far (thumb, shoulder, groin, and a non-disclosed fourth one). I'd love for Semih to come back here and I'm happy to hear he feels the same way.

Powe wouldn't be signed as big man insurance. He'd basically be a bench mascot ala Scalabrine. After getting rid of Nate and all rookies not named Avery, the Celtics were out of mascots on the bench to cheer. Powe is the perfect mascot cause he's a very intense player and teammate. He's not going to play. We have PP, Green, KG, Baby, Shaq, JO, and possibly Murphy for the frontcourt.

Lol so true. It's a little emotional for the first day but it's basketball. The guy makes millions and our team got better. Don't worry, people...
