    Growing pains. Nothing more, nothing less. When the Celtics put it together, they'll be very good.

    Or the fact that they just don't care at this point of the season. They know that they can turn it on at playoff time, and will just coast during the regular season like they have for the last few years.

    I'm not sure if the Oldtics performance is even worth discussing against the formery 1-9 Pistons defeat. What an embarrassment.

    Courtney Lee and Jason Terry have been underwhelming signings to date.

    I don't think there's any way Rondo stays in Boston after this season if the Celtics keep playing the way they have been. He hasn't been able to develop a consistent jump shot and will be coming off a torn ACL which could hurt his career long term as a slasher. I think they'll deal him in the offseason and get something nice in return. I would say that we'd take him down in Miami, but I don't even want him. IMO, what Chalmers brings to the table works much better with the roster that the Heat have. Rondo would just be redundant down there.

    Down goes Barbosa....The celtics just can't buy a break right now....I think they win last night if Barbosa doesn't go down and the rumor is that it could be serious....Now we have 3 empty bench spots that need to be filled quickly if not just to give pierce and KG a rest or their bodies will give out and get injured....This team has been playing really good without rondo because every player has to step up as opposed to letting rondo do everything.....I do agree that they should trade him in the offseason.....Well let's see where DA goes now with this team if he is going to keep adding to it or blow it up now.....I would like to see him add Delonte West as he can play on both sides of the floor and has played for the C's before....

    Jeff Green is beginning to ball. That's encouraging given the Celtics investment.

    If Green lives up to even half of his physical talent the C's will become a legitimate threat

    I really like what the C's are doing right now...They have plenty of shooters and with Jeff Green playing at a high level they are going to be solid in the playoffs...I would really love to see them draft Aaron Craft (Ohio State) so they can have rondo/bradley and then come with ......./craft....The defensive pressure all game would make other teams guards want to quit.....Hopefully KG and the bigs or lack there of can hold up and make a run in the playoffs and maybe surprise some people....

    Anybody have any word on Jason Terry's condition? I'm pretty sure he got killed in the second quarter tonight. ;)

    I wouldn't count on it. That was the game of a lifetime for Green. Without it, the Celtics would have been blown off the court by 20+ points.

    Or if they would actually call Lebron for a travel or offensive foul everytime he lowers his shoulder and as they call it "over powers the opponent" but it's really the same thing that shaq would get called for an offensive foul....It is a joke how they let Lebron get away with anything he wants including hanging on the rim for at least 5 seconds after he dunks the ball with noone else around....Anyone else that is a technical....You have to give props to Green for how he is starting to be more aggressive and turn into the player he can be....Do I think that he will shoot that well from 3 for the rest of the season? no...but he does have the capabilities to take over on the floor and put up around 20 a game which will be huge off the bench...Just keep thinking the heat are invincible so when they don't win the title then I will be back to let you know about it...

    It's called driving. Lots of people do it. Pierce used to do it. So did Jordan. Durant does it. Kobe does it. But LeBron is he only one that should get a foul? Got it. And you said the same thing about the Heat not winning a title last year. How did that turn out? :D

    The season has come to an end and one which many saw coming. As always, the Celtics fought it out but age and a lack of talent ultimately shone through. We should remember the contributions of our elder C's as it's time for Ainge to be ruthless and rip apart the current team and begin by rebuilding around Rondo, Green and hopefully an Al Jefferson type.

    The 2013/2014 Celtics are, IMO, going to be a very different outfit to what we've seen in the past few seasons. There's no room for sentiment now. Lead us back to the promised land Danny.

    I think after 8 years Doc Rivers is now an average coach. But you could see in this series how he still isn't a great offensive, defensive, or rebounding coach. He benefitted from having the Big Three, 3 hall of famers with high IQ's and elite talents at their craft, plus a top5 coach in Thibideau as assistant for a few years.

    I wouldn't trade Spoelstra for him, but if Spoelstra were to ever go full retard and leave the Heat, I would love for Doc to coach my team.

    every coach that's ever coached benefits from great players. no coach can win a title without all star players. doc is one of the best coaches in the league period.

    Doc is not a terrible coach but he's around average. Spoelstra is a significantly better coach than Doc. Before the Big Three ever joined, look at the 2 years prior at the Heat. They were one of the worst teams ever, a lottery team. Spoelstra comes in, before the Big Three, and that season with the same roster they made the playoffs. Pretty impressive and all before LeBron + Bosh. Thibideau is also a much better coach than Doc. Thibs just won a playoff series without DRose, with Deng in the ER, Hinrich out, Robinson and Gibson sick, Noah with plantar fascitis, against an excellent Nets team with home court advantage.
    I honestly think that with a better coach, the Celtics would have won more than 1 title with the Big Three over 6 years.
