yeh fair call, it will be interesting to see how he reacts this year, it could go a long way to also determining how the celtics fare, i do recall players like jason kidd and AI saying that he was a gret young point guard tho, and he shoulda been the no. 1 pg in the sophmore game, hes the best in that class

But, what about Pierce and Wally

Down the stretch of the season Tony was an incredible role player for us. During the last month of the season playing about 26 minutes a game he averaged 12.9ppg/2.5apg/1.9spg while shooting 75% from the floor. Combined with his great defense, he provided more than what was expected from him, especially being that it was after the injury and legal issues as you pointed out.

Green did great too when Wally was out of the lineup with his knee injury at the end of the season.

But I agree that Al definitely has the opportunity to become a good player this year. Not to sound like a complete "kool-aid drinker" as it's known on other Celtics boards, but I think that if Al can become a starter and get at least a good 30mpg we'll be fine. If you just stretch his numbers out to getting that much playing time we'd get a good amount of production from him anyway, and that's without adding in the fact that he's getting in shape and training with Clifford Ray this offseason plus he's fired up now and has said that he feels like he has to prove himself after the disappointment of last season. The two things I always have thought he lacked was getting himself in NBA shape and being motivated, and now it appears that he's got both of those things going for him. Add the 7th pick to the mix (please let it be a true PG) and we'll be out of the lottery in no time.

Is that what Celtic fans think this kid is going to do?

Sean May would be a great back-up.

You guys should trade up and take Morrison. It was meant to be.

Raef Lafrentz is on the team just so you know... So is Dwayne Jones. That would be way too little PT for AJ if Sean May was here.

True, Morrison belongs on the Celtics. But only if he keeps the mustache

Getting PT for Dwyane Jones probably won't be a priority unless he's really whupping ass in training camp, but Ryan Gomes has shown that he ought to get to play.

Right, even Ryan will be spending time at the 4, although it seems some want to move him to the 3 position.

It'll be experimented with, but Paul, Wally, and Gerald are all natural 3s. I don't expect to see Ryan play sf much.

Gerald is more of a 2 than a 3.

You could be right, but 6'8 is more of a forward's height, and he makes me think of George Gervin.

T-Mac was an SG for most of his career, so it could possibly work out.
