In Response to A Fish Starts To Rot From It's Head
[QUOTE]The Big Three, are the reason why Celtics lost two straight game, as the Jewish man will tell you that, "A Fish Starts To Rot From It's Head" We should stop blaming the new guys or other individual plyers. If something goes wrong in a home, a school, a country, a job place, or in any organization, the leaders are to be blamed, so, such is the case with the Celtics. The Big Three are the reason for our two straight losses. As the leaders of the team, if they come out very aggessive and ready to play, the rest of the team will follow suit. And if they come out layed-back and not ready to play, the rest of the team will also follow suit. As the leaders go, so is the followers. So let's blame The Big Three for our two straight losses. If a big tree is falling down, it takes the lives of little trees.

Another perfect example of the Boston Globetrotters playing the Washington Generals.
The Boston Globetrotters should have enough talent on any given night to play against a team that has inferior talent and is playing off a script that directs them how to lose.
You can easily argue the Cs are missing their 4th, 6th, and 7th best players and have been for a while. They lost their 8th best player and traded away several of their players to acquire what to me are now their 6th and 7th best players and need to be integrated.
Rotting from the head? Nope... having injuries to key players and not getting expected contributions coupled with a trade that will hopefully help in the future.
There will be another trade like this next year if Danny has any hope of ever handing off a contender to his successor. I don't think he can but at least they have two trade bait players going forward.
