Not really. Ray was still playing at a high level when we re-signed him back in 2010. Danny Ainge would've caught hell in 2010 if he let Ray walk and chose TA over him and you know it.

Let's be honest, prior to the 2010-11 season when he went to Memphis, TA was considered a defensive role player. Now since going to Memphis, he's become recognized as a team leader that completely changed the culture of the Grizzlies franchise and arguably the best defensive player in the NBA.

TA signed with Memphis because not only did they offer more but TA was reportedly extremely pissed when Danny re-signed Nate Robinson before him. I could be upset but Bradley was a great replacement for TA so whatever.

I realize they were playing at a high level then, but I still think they should have blown it up then. I understand why they didn't, but I just thought it was the better idea at the time. Rondo was becoming better and a leader while still being young so they could have actually quickly rebuilt around him and tried contending into his prime. Now KG/Pierce will retire in his prime and they will try to rebuild in it which won't work as well imo.

although

RONDO
BRADLEY
GREEN
SULLINGER
MELO

could be hilarious to watch, especially Melo.

Fab will be fine. He probably would've been a lottery pick if he didn't get suspended in college and actually played in the March Madness tournament, in which Syracuse probably would've went far in the tourney if he did play. The Celtics are letting Fab develop for a year before they call him up for significant minutes, just like they did with Avery Bradley and Kendrick Perkins, and we see how great that turned out for them.

Bradley is one of the most underrated players in the NBA. People don't realize just how good this guy is. He was the #1 player of his HS class and if he played his natural position of SG in college, he would've been a top 10 pick.

Sullinger was a lottery pick before being red-flagged because of a bad back and is a top 10 rookie. He would be at least an 8/8 guy if he started this year.

The Celtics will be fine.

idk man, I prefer the Lakers' method of replacing superstars with superstars.

Although I'm not exactly pleased as DWIGHT as our superstar, but the coward will probably leave anyways.

The Celtics historically have always been successful and never really experienced a significant period of not being perennial contenders, except for the 90's and early 2000's. Which had other variables that played into it. The team having one of the worst front offices in NBA history at the time and then the team's two star players that were supposed to be the team's future both dying at young ages.

Still to this day, the Celtics have managed to win a title in every decade in NBA history except of course, the 90's. I see people saying stuff like "The Celtics will be irrelevant once KG/Pierce retire" or ya-da-ya. It's all bullshit. The Celtics will be just fine.


The Lakers will never win anything with Dwight as their main guy. And you guys aren't gonna get LeBron either. I highly doubt he'll leave Miami, especially if they win another ring. Your only hope is relying on Love, who to be quite honest, isn't a winner either. Love is just a stat-padder that plays no defense. I guess saying you're only hope is a wrong choice of words, but you get the point.

You really shouldn't say we can't get anyone. Really. You should know this by now, of all people. And this isn't me being delusional, it's just the way things go with the LA market/team.

Btw, if Lebron/Wade/Bosh all back out of their contracts in 2014 there is absolutely zero chance that Heat resign them all as the owner has already stated he's losing money and he probably wouldn't want to go deep in the luxary tax to resign them all. And if he can't get them all then they won't win shit.


And is Love no longer your top PF in the nba.

I never said you can't get anyone. You're just not getting LeBron. If the Heat can't re-sign all three, you really think they're gonna let LeBron walk? And more than likely all three will just take paycuts...you know, like they all did the first time?

No Love isn't the best PF in the NBA. That's between Z-Bo and David Lee.

Lebron would be stupid to resign with the Heat. that's all I'm going to say. In two years I'll be shocked if Wade is capable of anything that he does now and Bosh will be at the back end of his prime. There is absolutely no reason for Lebron to take a pay cut to stay with that team. I really have no idea what he will do, the Cavs talk is actually intriguing to be completely honest and I could see it happening too, but like I said, staying with the Heat would probably be his worst option.

Bosh will still be effective as he gets older, his game should age gracefully. Besides, he'll only be 30 in 2014.

The Heat will still be contenders two years from now more than likely, I fail to see how LeBron will be stupid to re-sign with them. Especially if he wins another championship before that time comes.
