Celtics clearly gearing to play small-ball all season. Guess the lack of centers in the NBA makes that pretty easy.

Bradley is out until January I think. It's more like this:
Rondo/ Terry
Lee/Barbosa/Bradley

Damn! This season keeps on getting better and better. The Heat have real competition out east in the Celtics and pretty much any of the big teams out west (Lakers, Spurs, Mavericks, Thunder).

Terry and Barbosa on the same team?

Someone explain to me why that isn't a really bad idea.

I mean, they added a good player to their roster... but one of those two guys is going to get short shrift. You ever hang out with a group of people and one of them is wayyy too much like you, in looks and personality? It grates on you. You don't want them there. Or when you're driving on the highway and someone else is going the exact same speed as you?

Barbosa's going to hate being on this team because I don't think he's as good as Terry and the Celtics already have a breakneck-speed small guard Rondo who's going to be on the floor most of the time. Barbosa should have signed with someone that could use him.

This for instant offense of the second unit? And he could play the first, also. I don't think of Barbosa as a high intelligence guy but he's fast, and he has some skills to go with. Well, we'll see.

Basically this. A good comparison would be to have Ray Allen and Reggie Miller on the same team.

Celtics don't really get much better. He winds up being more of an insurance signing if they lose JT, Rondo, or Bradley. He'll be good for what, 10-14 minutes a game at best?

Hardly an impact player given the circumstances.

It could be that Ainge is stockpiling players in anticipation of a trade. Josh Smith perhaps.

Who's the impact player out there to sign? Right now he's an insurance signing but his preserve also gives the Celtics a roster that they can build a trade with more easily. He's not a huge addition but who would be?

Barbosa's just going to be riding the bench unless someone gets injured. So it's probably a really smart pick-up, but not someone I'm playing at all if my top guys are fine.
