[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jeff Green is a total bust : The Celtics are a year older Acie and the moves Danny made haven't really worked out. That isn't Doc's fault. Time Waits for no One.

It is Doc's fault for not figuring out how to get Green into the swing of things. Perkins was a dundering blob of a man who had trouble moving before the knee injury. Krstic - J O'neal and S O'neal will be fine at the 5.
It IS Doc's fault for running the living shizzle out of ray for yet another year- WELL OVER 35 minutes, how da ya think that's going to work out starting about now and WHY weren't wafer and daniels used more?
Repeat nearly all of above for Pierce, who now likely has to grind it out with Lebron or Carmelo. Gee, sure wish we could have used Marquis more, Marquis should have been getting 30 mins a night. But what DID he get? Half of that if he's lucky and I didn't even check, but I know he's lucky if he got 15 mins. Wafer-Marquis at the 2-3 should have been a nice bench- scoring outside and in!! What could have been.
It IS Doc's fault for not managing the tempo of the team more, suddenly, we stopped moving. BELIEVE ME, Perkins had NOTHING TO DO WITH THE RUNOUTS and hurry ups that we used to get!!
So where did the tempo go? Who cares, but it's a COACH"S job to get a team back on course with tempo. Jeff Green is a great "piece" for upping the tempo, yet he runs the floor alone on the break.
ALL of these things are coaching, or lack-thereof issues. It's not just a matter of a "deal didn't work out" and "time goes on, they are older now". KG is playing out his butt and Pierce had a career year. Ray had a great year too until the used up issue rose its ugly head in the last three weeks.
