[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Current bench players vs. '08/'10 : Agree again about Posey. I am just surprised that their haven't been many other comments from Celtics fans about our championship year and the play our bench during the playoffs.

We had two great clubs last 3 years, a title winner and another that was robbed of one.
Those years we had the following bench players score dub fig's and/or have massive efforts to help us win these close games:2008
Sam Cassell gm 1 vs. Cleve - 13p, 2-4 on 3's, big balls dance
P.J. brown gm 7 vs. Cleve - 10p, 6r, game clinching J
Eddie House gm 7 vs. Cleve - huge steal, bucket, timeout
James Posey gm 3 vs. Det - 12p, 4r, got homecourt back
Leon Powe gm 2 vs. LA - 21 points in a 6 point win
Posey/House gm 4 vs. LA - 50 mins, 29 points keyed huge comeback
Entire bench gm 6 vs LA - 39 points in humiliating 39 point title clincher2010
Rasheed gm 2 and 6 vs. Cleve - combined 30 points buried Cavs
Tony Allen gm 4 vs. Cleve - 15p, 5r, great D on LBJ
Rasheed gm 1 and 3 vs. Magic - combined 26 pts, great D on Howard
Baby gm 3 and 6 vs. Magic - combined 23 pts, 13 reb's
Baby/Sheed gm 2 vs. LA - combined 15p/14r
Nate gm 6 vs. Magic - picked up injured RR w/ 13 pts
Shrek and donkey - game 4 vs. LA, combined for 30
10-12 really great perfomances from the bench in each of those 2 runs.
Green has to have 7-8 'normal' Posey games in him w/ 2-3 of those 12-15 point games that carry a team through a rough stretch.
DWest has to have a couple Cassell/House games where he buries a couple 3's and gets 8-13 points.
Baby needs to be '09-'10 Baby, despite probable nagging injuries, gotta bring that energy and some 8 pt 6r games.
Shaq needs to return and give a couple 10 point games like Sheed/PJ did.
Then there is that Powe wildcard guy... will someone get in fould trouble and we see Wafer, Kristic or Murph off the deep bench and ON FIRE?
There has to be a wildcard out of nowhere guy
