I like the signing as injury insurance (knock on wood) but there are going to be a few guys upset with pt.

Terry= 6'1
Bradley 6'2
Barbosa= 6'3
Rondo= 6'1

Besides wasn't criticizing them. I was praising their depth and the addition and just noting how small the backcourt is becoming.

supposedly Odom is their back-up center though he hasn't really played that position outside the World Championships.

Billups is growing? He's always been listed at 6'3".

Terry 6'2. I believe Barboasa supposedly grew to 6'4 or so. You conveniently left out their likely starter Lee at 6'6.

Who said you was criticizing them? You called them the smallest backcourt in recent years when the best rotation and deepest team in basketball has an even smaller one.

Lee is 6'6"?
On the Nets he looked closer to 6'4" and thin.

Default Re: BREAKING: Leandro Barbosa signs with Celtics

Well I did forget Lee, so fair enough. He is listed as 6'4-6'6 which is still plenty for SG. If he's starting then yea def not bad on size. Although your heights are wrong. Terry was listed as 6'1 for over a decade... I'm not buying that he grew an inch in his mid-late 30's. Barbosa is definitely not anywhere near 6'4 as Billups is taller than him and in 90 percent of listings on the web Barbosa is 6'3.

Love this. Would have been useless if he signed to another random team.. I like it this way so the Celtics can give the Heat a better challenge, or else the East is going to be a catwalk again.

The Cs have the defenders to throw at Wade in Bradley, Lee, and Rondo. The real problem is James. Unfortunately I don't know which free agent out there changes that.

Realistically so few players can play him or Durant well enough that they become a premium and will likely never be free agents. I can deal with throwing Pierce, Green and Lee at him.

Barbosa isn't a great player, but he's decent enough. Nice depth signing though, and good for the East so the Heat just don't sweep their way to the finals this year. Maybe the Celtics can push them to 5 now.
