Re: 2017 NBA Playoffs 1st Round GT: Boston Celtics (1) vs. Chicago Bulls (8)
Awful awful way to end the postseason yet again. Just like 2015 against CLE. So maybe the same will happen and we'll clean house. Bye GarPax, bye Fred. Bye Wade.
I'd say keep Rondo one more season. He was the best player in the playoffs series and he hadn't played since game 2. But he showed if you get him to the playoffs and let him run the team then with Jimmy and a shooter and a legit big. I say make the run for Griffin because Jimmy with Griffin and Rondo running the point, in the East that catapults us back to top 4 status. Get rid of Niko, MCW, Grant. These guys can't be on an NBA roster. See if we can trade up in the draft. Package a pick plus maybe Payne, Portis, Zipser, Denzel and maybe next year's 1st to get a truly impactful player to build with.
And.....hire Mark Jackson! Or pull JVG out of retirement! Someone with NBA experience.
