Delonte is better than Duhon. In fact, Delonte is almost as good as Kirk Hinrich if you go strictly by the numbers.

I'd honestly rather see Duhon than Gordon. Gordon and West are too similar - both "combo" guards. Duhon is more of a pure point.

Gordon would be a nice 6th man off the bench if we had west, green and pierce all starting in theory

Chris Duhon is far superior to Delonte West.

West has one good game (by good I mean passable) and the next two games are worthless performances.

He has no natural point guard instincts. PP needs a point guard.

Chris Duhon is the next closest thing to Brevin Knight (an ideal fit in Boston), but Duhon has started to develop 3 point range, and is respectable when left open. He defends very well, and is a very good passer. Perfect fit.

Pick 16 is not that much of a downgrade from Pick 7. And there will be some really good players at that spot. Hilton Armstrong or Saer Sene should be available then. Oleksiy Pecherov or Patrick O'Bryant may even slide there.

Marcus Williams is a pure point guard AND he is MUCH better than Chris Duhon. Delonte West was probably one of the most consistent players on the Celtics last season. He defends, blocks shots, hustles, steals, turns his man over, starts the break and pushes the tempo, has the speed and athleticism to finish in transition, he can penetrate, beat his man off the dribble and create his own shot. he makes great decisions, he leads, AND he shoots it at a great percentage from deep and from the floor. Add to that he's CLUTCH. Have you even WATCHED the last two seasons of Boston Celtics basketball? You CLEARLY haven't..I could sell you some copies of my tapes from these past two seasons!

Hilton Armstrong, Saer Sene, Patrick O' Bryant and Oleksiy Pecherov are NOT going to produce right away...three of them will spend time in the NBDL to develop..therefore picking any of them at #16 would be a WASTED PICK. I don't understand your thought process or logic on this one. One.

wouldn't get o'bryant or armstrong at 16 anyways, but yeh where did all the west hate come from when he had the second best season behind pierce last year of any celtic, in terms of the c's future, when people talk about green and al, west should be mentioned in the same breath too.

Co-signed. I wouldn't wanna see him go for anyone other than Williams, perhaps Foye, and if Telfair comes in...I don't see him taking the starting job from Delonte. Chris Duhon in KELLY GREEN? Makes me wanna throw up just thinking about it! One.

yeh i think doc is pretty sold on west being the point guard, i mean 12, 4 and 4 while shooting 85% from the line, 48% from the floor plus a steal per game, after missing most of his rookie season thru injury, telfair, foye or williams arent' goin to take his starting spot, unless he's moved to a 6th man leader of the second unit type situation which i have mixed feelings about.

This explains EVERYTHING. Now I realize that you ARE in fact mentally deficient...Guess what color I am? Guess if I'm offended by that comment or not? Guess if making that comment and the qualifier ALONE makes you racist. One.
