In response to concord27's comment:
Let me say to you, you better be right. Or this is an under .500 team. No other big man equals the end of KG.
The end of KG was back in 2010 when the Celtics lost to the Lakers in the Finals. But we kept hoping the Celts had 1 more run left in them.
Only 3 players at the age of 35, or older, led their team to a championship. Those 3 are Jabbar, MJ, and Bill Russell.
Also, no team has won a championship averaging less then 40 rebounds per game.
So this current Celts team is not on track to win a championship. But if Ainge can make a deal to bring in a big man who can score inside and rebound, the Celts will be back in the hunt.
Fierce, all your points about getting rebounding big man - is right. BUT, we need something else that hasn't been mentioned. We need BALLERS. We need COMPETITORS. KG & Pierce compete every night, we need more of that.
That is why I want Milsap. Milsap BALLS HARD. He gets intense and can take over games. Bass is trying hard, but Milsap has that baller gene, the same as the greats. Green doesn't have it. Lets hope AB does.
