I know that, I want him off the team and I believe Isiah will look to move him and another player maybe Nate Robinson. We need pass first guards who can shoot the ball and play decent defense.

I agree... and the thing about his lack of leadership is that he simply isn't vocal; he's laid back. I think he would be a great leader if he'd take more of an active, vocal role as the captain of this team. He has all of the skills... he just hasn't been dynamic enough. Perhaps with everything that's gone on this season, he'll take on that role to some extent.

Hmmmmmmm....

Miami: Check - Shaq is done

Raps: Check - Sorry Ford
Nets: Debatable - I'd say 3 of the top 5, Celts top 3 > R-G@y
Detroit: Check
Orlando: Check
Chicago: Check

yup sounds about right, Boston SHOULD make the playoffs next year

Only good for Crawford is for bench. And the only game that was decent was his career high game.

Atlantic division is tough now. We have to pray NYK ****s up their talent again. No one has the post defense to stop Curry and Randolph.

Default Re: Celtics won't make playoffs? Paul Pierce Sucks?

firstly... i think the Celtics will make the playoffs... teams in the East better than Boston : Chicage, Cleveland, Toronto.... Miami is getting older and sole-reliance of D-Wade won't get them far... i say they'll make the playoffs... with a worse record than Boston... Washington can make the playoffs too... same thing... Boston's better... Wiz are not gonna perform as well as they did this season... Gilbert's not gonna do "it" again... Detriot is falling apart... Rip and Tay-P are the only 2 pieces left in their rotation i feel... i don't like their chances... New York is talented but highly unpredictable... they may be the best... or even the worse...

secondly... PP doesn't suck... he's better than Ray Allen i feel... he can rebound pass and play D...

thirdly... yes... don't even try talking to them and lose 3 years in your life...

Yeah, everyone is talking about thier post offense, but Dyess, Sheed, Z, Dwight, Thomas, Big Al, Bosh...will all be destroying them on the other end and most of them will be putting in some defensive effort against them. Knicks will still have big problems.

Ben Wallace? if he can defend Shaq, he defend Curry..

Tyrus Thomas is a good defender.

I'm very eager to see how Al Jefferson plays next season... He had some great games, especially against some of the better teams out west. I have to say it again... I just can't see that trio missing the playoffs unless there are some major, major injuries... and even then, we play in the east.

to answer your question very simply... once players get hurt and miss extended time, the average Joe forgets about him and begins to believe that he was neveer really that good.

this forum is the best example. One year ago, according to this forum, DWade was the best player in the world, or darn close to it. Over the past 6 months, well, you know...

Fact is, PP is a perennial all-star and one of the best players in the game. Personally, I think getting Ray Allen was a very smart move on several levels:
1. fits with PP much better than, say, Marion. Neither player will have to play out of position.
2. mgmt had to make a decision to win now or, conversely, just trade PP; in which case probably could not get value for PP. Given a generally weak eastern conference (see Cavs), the time is RIPE to run for the championship.

Ray, PP, AlJeff is a very solid 3-some. KEEP Ratliff to play serious interior D. Team has decent depth.

I think they should contend for the Finals...YES, Finals...IF they stay healthy.
