In Response to HERE'S HOW EASILY WE CAN GET BILLUPS TO CLOSE GAMES & BACKUP RONDO!
[QUOTE] I am certain danny is already talking in the backdoor to billups and his folks in same way he did with sam cassell. he would be ideal. i am assuming he wil be traded to nets then get his buyout, then celts will swoop in. y would he go to LA or anywhere else? miami is all set with arryo and guys who dominate the ball. orlando has 4 of them on its roster esp with arenas and nelson. in LA everything goes thru kobe at the end and derek fisher will be closing games.. period! plus steve blake is pretty good. i will take him if LA cuts ties in a billups move but i do not see it happening. billups wants a ring. celts can offer the minimum for rest of the year. at that point with delonte and nate on the roster (nate signed thru next year), i would cut von wafer or avery (leaning towards wafer for avery is the better defender with higher upside). now we would have a guy far superior to rondo at the end of games like tonight versus chicago. he can hit foul shots (with guys on the sides), is up there with ray and paul in burying late game jumpers and is as savvy as you can get as a veteran... plus there is some unfinished business for how he left boston the first time! rondont is still the superior 3 quarters player but you have billups on that bench with the game 7 scenario and celts have their second ring right now! it wasnt a big man issue, more about a PG who could not take offensive control or draw respect as kobe just rested on defense as lakers played 4-5! nate will become inactive in the playoffs, and delonte could be ray's backup while along with chauncey while playing some 3! imagine our small ball 3 guard (rondo-bill-delonte) line up with paul at the 4?

Somehow we can talk about how there should be some discussion about whether Perk should start ahead of Rondo but and now there is some talk about Billups backing up rondo..... is there even a remote possibility that a better point guard should start?.......... close games and back up Rondo..... why do you guys continue to make me change my depends?
Pierce, Ray, and KG and are saying Danny.... is there anyway you can get us a player that can run the team but not shoot from the floor, not shoot from the line, and not shoot from 3 and substitute just about any player in your position that can??????
Pierce, KG, Shaq, and Ray are sitting around a table and they are playing cards and somehow the conversation comes up and Ray says is there is anyway we can get a point guard that can shoot, they all shake their heads and say no, then Pierce says is there anyuway you guys can get this double team off me, and they say no... ditto for KG......................
Oddly and much to the chagrine of most posters, Rondo is the worst shooter, worst 3 point shooter,and worst freebie shoooter,,, but for some stupid coaches plan otherwise.....
well unless of course you incluce coach K who laughs at Rondo and Doc whose vitriol includes Rondos inability to shoot hurt the CS in the playoffs
