Larry Brown should be the guy. Even for just one year. He's an NBA Champion and Hall of Famer. People need to understand: The Big 3 era is about to be over! Some people are acting like we will be Top 4 in the East when one of them leaves. Reality check: we will suck. Let's start talking about how to realistically rebuild this team because if not, we're looking at about at least 5 years (more or less the amount of years it took the Lakers to recover post-Shaq, and with Kobe!) of figuring it out. People are not getting it!

Who is trading a worthy young player for one of the Big 3? Who thinks we can actually win banner 18 with decent young players? Let's face it: gotta trade Rondo for CP3 or Deron, let Ray and KG retire in 2012, sign Dwight.

I agree with Jester00 that's what I mean to say..

I 100% agree with you. I mean, yes, Shaq won't give us a bunch of points or minutes, but his presence alone was felt. In those 8 minutes the Heat shot 35% or something like that. A very small sample, but his presence was definitely felt. Big Baby sucks. PLEASE DOC DO NOT PLAY HIM MORE THAN 15 MINUTES unless he is on fire or something. I'm done with Baby. I've been criticizing Rondo for a while and watching him come back is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen, but I just can't still get over the fact his jumper and free throw shooting never improves effectively. He actually played better after the injury! I love you Rondo and I really hope your arm gets better soon, but work on those free throws!!!! ugh...Who am I kidding? If that arm needs surgery, he won't improve his free throws during the summer :( Still, one thing you can't deny is that this guy has a lot of heart and is a warrior.

Why is Doc Rivers even playing Big Baby so much? Isn't he realizing Joel Anthony is owning him? Doc needs to play Jermaine more! Open your eyes Doc: Davis sucks!

seems like ages ago... nate robinson was still a knick, david lee was their main guy, we had Perkins, House, Daniels, Wallace, and even Scalabrine was on the floor!

is it just me, or have the Celtics always struggled against the Knicks? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhQuwm8obOc

Here are my thoughts: Homecourt against the Heat and Bulls? Who cares? We can beat these guys on the road. The key is Shaquille O'Neal. If he's healthy and able to contribute, we'll get to the Finals no matter what. If Shaq is healthy and we do get to the Finals, we probably won't have homecourt, which bothers me because the format sucks for the road team. However, if Shaq remains healthy once again: EVERYTHING'S POSSIBLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! P.S.: This will be a very stressful month.

I wouldn't sit them today. I would sit Jermaine, but not everybody else. One win, even against a bad team, can raise your confidence and help improve your chemistry. But here is the most important thing why I would not sit them today: the Lakers play the Spurs on Tuesday. The Spurs are still fighting to get homecourt advantage against the entire NBA, so they probably want to win. If the Lakers lose that game, and the Celtics win against both the Wizards and Knicks, Boston will get homecourt in the Finals against LA, and after everything we saw in March and April, that's an outcome I'd happily take.

funny that some people here think we should trade rondo because that's EXACTLY what I was thinking. He is regressing instead of progressing. How come in so many years in the league this guy hasn't improved his jumpshot and/or free throw percentage dramatically? Improving your jumpshot may be too tough, but free throws? You just got to put the work. Listen, he is one of the best PGs out there, but he isn't even doing it on defense anymore. All I'm saying is, if the names "Deron" and "Chris" pop up this summer, we should think about it, especially with the summer of Dwight looming, and the end of the Big 3 era.

Rasheed Wallace. haha just kidding I know some people hate it when someone comes up with it. I think Shaq will be back in the 2nd round of the playoffs... I don't think we'll need him in the 1st round anyway... we just need him to give us 5 good minutes like today and survive!!!! :S

Rasheed Wallace. just kidding...

WAIT A MINUTE!!!!! Jermaine O'Neal still plays in the NBA???????????????? just kidding... wow... people are very negative about this stuff... it's better to have low expectations I guess? :/

something tells me we'll see more of pavlovic than some people expect... if Doc loves his defense, he'll play. We'll see how it goes, but with that length he could be quiet effective on D and better than Marquis and TA on offense since he can at least shoot it and spread the floor. I actually see Von Wafer out of the rotation.

Can we still trade Bradley for Rudy Fernandez? :/ just kidding... or... am I?
1 reply
why not? he is the best PG available and he knows a thing or two about the heat... unless, of course, sam cassel wants to come out of retirement or something...

btw I'm not happy big baby is injured. I'm just trying to make a point. I obviously wouldn't want someone to get hurt

awesome work! the thing about this team is that each player they bring shines because they can play to their strengths. Jeff hasn't been able to play with the starting 5 much and avery obviously doesn't execute plays as rajon does but now that big baby is injured he'll get more playing time and hopefully develop this kind of chemistry too.

nice post... hopefully people will be able to move on soon enough... the celtics are going to keep playing so we need to embrace jeff green and any other new guy and start being positive... I hope the best for perkins and I loved him too (the same with erden). he is in an amazing team with a lot of future, great teammates... now it's also time to realize we've got great players and can win it against anybody for sure
1 reply
Rest is also very important. With Jeff Green, the Celtics are now going to be able to rest Paul Pierce and KG in the 2nd half. That is HUGE. We'll see if everything works out though. Shaq is still a great center.
