In Response to 58 million Celts will be Lucky to:
[QUOTE]With more than 58 million already tied up with the big four, the Celtics will be Lucky to resign some of the free agents we have. Green and D. West will be difficult to resign be cause there will be interest out there for them from other teams. Glen Davis will generate some interest because he is a very good player and might be hard to resign because of the riff between him and doc that doc let get out of hand.
There is not money to sign the guys that could put us over the top or make us good enough to win 18. As far as the bench goes, we did not have them long enough to see their value and in the playoffs doc did not explore and use much imagination concerning the bench. He went the K. C. Jones route and stayed with the vets. There were at least four or five bench players that seemed to fit very well with the Celts. If we don't and we don't have the $$$$ then we should do our best to resign most of our bench which with training camp and playing time might just suprise many. IN order: West, Davis, Green, Pav., Krstic and Wafer. Avery is way over valued and we will be lucky if he can contribute in any significant way to #18 this comming year.

thank you. a coach is supposed to bring things together. most all of what doc has done with regard to davis is sell him out one sound bite at a time to the press, all the while looking the other way with regard to other players, like sheed wallace, who were paid more money who didn't show up for a whole season. Somehow, glen davis' "incident" was worth going to the press over but sheed's flabby blubbery boobkies and obvious lack of effort were "kept inside the locker room".
classy, doc. what a jerk. if i was davis, that would be an unforgiveable offense for me. davis retaliated when he was struck. nobody struck sheed into showing up a flat blob and not trying. yet the flustered doc is cutting promo's into a microphone that he's "at the end of his rope" with davis and such.
screw you doc rivers. treat people the same. what is the major malfunction with glen davis? just tell us. all i see in interviews and games and hear from any other players is that davis is an affable kid who tries harder and hustles more than most two or three NBA veterans combined.
anybody on this? is davis a really bad apple? or just "fat" and therefore subject to unconditional disdain, doc style?
