In Response to C's were winning games right after the trade but now are losing; so it must be the coaching, right?
[QUOTE]Kristic played well before he was coached (remeber, "no time to learn plays", now he is not; Green's minutes were higher after the trade, now he's getting Quis-like minutes. Rondo was moping right after the trade and continues to mope (getting worse), and the Big 3 are tired. Doc ran them into the ground (again) hoping to win the easy ones at home, knowing the upcoming games would be tough. Oooops! And if Doc is calling CPP selfish, pleaaazzee! Rondo throws up a dead duck floater with 15 seconds left instead of looking for his best offensive creator, who was hot (game before last night) and Paul's the problem; no Paul's the Captain, and KG and Ray have also played NBA ball since Rondo was in diapers (nearly). The problem is coddling a four year player like he's some kind of veteran (he's not) and future hall of famer (doesn't look that way these days). It's not about shooting with Rondo, he doesn't need to shoot well to help this team win games (it would help of course), but if he's going to act like a punk, and punk Paul at the end games; he needs to find his azz on the bench, or in street clothes for a night or two.

Do you have a quote where Doc singled out Pierce as the selfish one? Or, was it more the TEAM in general was playing selfishly?
Also don't think he's coddling Rondo. I think he doesn't trust Arroyo and West is still hurt, so he HAS to play Rondo. Rondo needs to sit out a game or two, for a multitude of reasons, but he won't because who do you play? He is the best we have, and he gives us the best chance to win.
I lay more of the blame on Davis (keeps shooting and fouling) and Ray, who can't seem to get on track. Understand, if ONE person is not scoring, that gives us two non-scorers automatically on the floor.
They will get it together, I know. I know because I am a TRUE fan, not some poser in a Rick Pitino outfit!
