    The look on danny ainge's face sitting in the stands when the heat was pounding on the celtics at the end of the game was priceless.

    The guy was almost crying his face off. I think i detected a couple tears coming down his chin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO HEAT.

    No, it's the failure of people like you who didn't see that Perk was overrated and still is. Were we just going to bust our salary cap for years to come on a 6 and 6 guy? The other 3 around him made Perk, not the other way around. How is it you can't see what he isn't doing nothing in OKC either? He still can't play the last 5 minutes of the game because of OFFENSE.  JO is putting up better numbers than Perk. Jeff Green has been playing very well. Who was going to back up Paul if Perk was still here.....Daniels?  He was hurt remembe? Harangody ? Check. Tony Allen took himself out of the equation and he still is a zero offensive threat. It's laughable how some continure to spout defense. Listen to Mark Jackson say I will take good offense over good defense anyday. He is correct. Our OFFENSE from the big 3 is killing us now. That has absolutely nothing to do with Perkins. I think it was the right and necessary trade. If the Big Three can't get off their backside now, it is on them and time to rebuild. Perkins was not, thankfully, part of that plan.

    [QUOTE]paul, He just doesn't get it.  Great coaches can adjust to the talents that they have.  Or to the situation on the court. I am puzzled how Doc can come up with fabulous in-bounds plays, but can't make adjustments to the trends in a given game.  I thought that we would be better prepared after the week off.  It was a good time to practice and figure out how to utilize the talent.

    Yup they just don't get it, their looking for cause but looking in the wrong direction.  There is talent on that bench, but Doc just decided not to use it. Change it up for game 3, start Krstic at center have O'Neal and Murphy coming off the bench together. Sit Davis! Have Wafer and Pavlovic back up Paul and Ray. Do something anything but completely rely on the big three.

    I can't still believe people are diminishing Perkins value, if you hated him or just personally didn't like him (like me) just admit it, but Perkins role went way beyond the numbers. He provided the Celtics with that nasty, bullyish attitude. He absorbed space down the middle like only a healthy Shaq could. Apparently and as ridiculous as it may sound he represented an important part in Rondo staying motivated and positive. He made the Celtics the most physical team in the NBA, fouling or not fouling. Players used to love him he was an essential part of the big 3 Celtics psyche. And that's how the Celtics are now almost being bullied by the Heat.

    But more outrageous is that Danny Ainge innocently thought that the oldest player in the league with known health and weight issues since he was at the prime of his game, could simply now step in and replace him into a significant role at the end of the Celtics championship runs.

    Yes, Danny Ainge gave this series to the Heat before it even started.  What a bone-headed move to trade Perkins!  You guys are toast, even though I hate to admit it!  Somebody has to STOP LeBron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Mitch Kupchak would never be "given" any star players would he? No. that would never happen!! I hope you know I am joking (Gasol from Memphis).

    Oh no tex, I know EXACTLY what I read on this forum. I know because every time I read one of those ludicrous posts, I would laugh my as$ off.

    Almost every trade or free agent pickup Danny made...many on this forum were heaping praise on DA and saying #18 was in the bag. The Shaq pickup, the JON signing, bringing in Delonte West...all of these as well as last year and the year before that...many of your fellow C's fans were certain that #18 was a foregone conclusion. And with each trade or signing, I was scratching my head (like many of the talking heads) wondering why this fan base looked at DA's every move as "genius".

    Maybe a few of your fellow C's fans will man-up and admit it, but I doubt it. Danny's only "brilliant" move was signing KG and Ray Allen. Everything beyond that really showed his "genius"...and now dark days are ahead.

    The perk trade was an absolute disaster,  BUT danny is a very very good gm.  Think of all the talent he drafted...  he needed that to trade for kg.  he is a good gm, he just made 1 seriously bad trade.

    PS the injury to kg cost them at least 1 championship

    give danny a break nobody is correct 100% of the time.

    the celtics are a little old now, they need dwight howard badly!


    tex, I rest my case.

    Other than Rondo, how many "great" draft picks are still with the C's?! And even many of you want to see HIM traded.

    if we lose this series early, danny might consider rebuilding the team this summer, not until KG and Ray contract end.  Big trade would be done this summer.

    danny has 19th first round pick and the other first round pick 2012 from Oklahoma City obtained from Perkins / Jeff trade.  So, he has some good value to obtain young star players from other teams.

    1) Letting him finish the season does not necessarily force the Celtics to sign him to big contract.
    2) Right now, the second best rebounder in this team is the point guard. You can add the rebounds of the two centers and they still do not equal Rondo's.
    3) Giving up Perk for added athleticism is bad strategy. You are not going to match the athleticism of Miami. And by trying to do so is just making you play exactly the kind of they want. Same with Lakers. You beat teams like that by playing ugly and tough in the paint.
    4) You say that the big three are the ones that made Perk look better. It looks like the big three do not think the same. Besides, we have yet to see how the three centers improved that position.
    5) Perhaps most important of all, the other teams gained confidence at attacking the Celtics inside, after Perk left.

    I believe you underrate his value to the team, because he does not play pretty. That just also happens to be one of the reasons why athletic teams did not like playing Boston.

     1. First and foremost, he was testing the market. If we didn't move we would have got nothing in return if he spurned us like Tony Allen. That is what the trade was all about.
     2. The other issue is freeing up money after next year for a big free agent.
     3.  Perkins ain't scaring anybody in OKC so far. Maybe you haven't been watching. If he is doing so wonderfully and such a game stopper, why  doesn't he even play the last five minutes of the game? He wasn't doing that here. Isn't the end of the game when most attack the basket to get the foul calls?
     4. These guys are supposed to be veterans and professionals. I get tired of hearing the excuses.
