WWF, come on son, you can do better than that.


Everyone knows that you can't really give Russell the ring argument due to not only the sheer number he has, but the watered down competition he faced back then. Like Notorious said, only three really good teams, and the Celtics had most of the good players, including Russell.

Russell made his teammates better. That's part of the reason why they were so good.

When Russell retired the Celtics were coming off winning back-to-back titles...Russell retires and then the Celtics fail to make the playoffs for the next two seasons.

Is it going to be on anything other than League Pass/Local channels?

I do agree that Avery Bradley is an amazing pressure defender, but I don't see how he is gonna fix the Celtics 2 main problems which is
rebounding and defense in the paint. Guys like Kobe, and JJ would be able to use their size and post him up.

Though I guess its a good thing many teams play small

Xile, what was it like being a Nets fan post-Kidd and pre-Brooklyn?

Re: NBA Thread: 12/13 Season - Are the Warriors for real?

Bradley did just fine against Joe Johnson last year so I don't see why he wouldn't do the same this year. As far as Kobe goes, idk, Bradley's never played against him but it should be interesting.

He won't directly fix them but his impact should help in those areas. With the pressure he applies on the opposing team's best perimeter player, there should be less perimeter players attacking the paint to score and to draw defenders away to free an open man cutting to the basket. Also it should give the big men a little more time to stay back and not have to come over and rotate as much away from the basket.

The Celtics really aren't as bad of a rebounding team as the total numbers suggest. They're an elite defensive rebounding team based on the numbers, but their problem is offensive boards. And that's kind of Doc Rivers fault as he advises the team to not attempt offensive rebounds and instead get back on defense. Sullinger is like the only player on the team that actually hustles and looks for offensive boards.

Not that I know of. I bought League Pass but I'm not sure I want to watch the inevitable thrashing the Mavs will receive.
