[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Is Rondo coming back? : Would you rather have Gasol OR Bynum? Can't say both because in 2008 that was not possible. I think you had a rather good showing with Gasol - you would have been swept if you just had Bynum. Bynum OR Gasol - that is the choice. I am done trying to educate you, it is a FACT , I looked it up and verified with two sources: 1. Ariza played - he was not hurt. 2. Bynum got hurt, THEN you traded for Gasol. End of story!

The only thing I learn from you is how badly you can misconstrue reality to fit into your biased views. I do not think objective thought is something you are even capable of. Educating? That is almost funny.
Bynum was supposed to be back in time for the playoffs in 2008, and he didn't heal up in time. All this talk about Bynum getting hurt, and then the Lakers acquired Gasol, is irrelevant. Bynum was on the roster whether you want to acknowledge it or not, and his knee failed to heal in time for the playoffs.
The Lakers weren't at full strength, end of story. In 2010, the Celtics faced Bynum and Gasol, not the imaginary tale of one or the other you are trying to tell. This whole either Gasol or Bynum paradigm is a childish fantasy. If Bynum was able to get healthy in time, you would have gotten both, that is a fact. The circumstances surrounding the trade is irrelevant, and you know it, because you lived it in a loss two years later. You got whooped with Gasol and Bynum on one leg for the whole series. There, I said it, both Bynum and Gasol. I said, I saw it, and you wrongly said I couldn't.
This is no different for the Celtics, and Perkins this year. If he doesn't get back in time for the playoffs this year, the Celtics will not be at full strength, regardless of whether or not they signed Shaq after the injury occurred. It is not Shaq or Perkins, it is both, if Perkins gets back in time. Did you play Bynum or Gasol, or did you play Bynum and Gasol this year? What was different in 2008? Could it be an injury? Oh no, not according to a homer with no integrity like you.
As far as Ariza, he was injured, and because of it, he was ineffective, and barely available to play. When a starter only plays 35 minutes in totality over the course of a six game series, it is because there was a problem. The guy didn't even play at all in game one, why do you think that is? So when you say Ariza wasn't injured, you are talking out of your narrow behind again. It is just a lie, you are a dishonest person.
