[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Wizards : Yes, but not against all star guards and not in the tough situations like Ray has this year. Playoffs on the line, important wins on the line.....I love AB in for stinks to play great D but a star game against the Wizards doesn't buy you the right to replace Ray Allen, yet. But, I am happy for AB. Remember when we all thought he was a waste and was never going to be a good player? That's why I say watch out for JJJ and Moore next year. One year with Doc and young players seem to really start to grow, ala Rondo, Perk, Big Al, Delonte, and now Bradley.

im not even looking at avery's scoring as the reason to start him. i think when he is on the court with the starting unit we are faster, play with more energy, quickness, intensity, much better defensively.
and its not even all a knock on ray. ray is a scorer, so if he comes off the bench where theres not alot of scoring, he can be the guy that just comes in and scores for us, we need that. lets be honest, ray has games where he lights it up, but he is either non existant or a beast in games..theres not really an in between. and we all know about his defense.
i think AB makes us younger in the starting lineup, better on D and faster on O.
s/n - Stiemsma has worked on his rebounding, its looking better and better.
