    [QUOTE]JON has surprised me... I must admit. I had him written off for the season. His stats arent all that impressive but when I watch him during a game his mobility and quickness is noticably better.  Hes getting in opponents way in the lane, changing shots and angles.  Even had a few buckets last night. Just as important, hes hustling...

    I had also written him off this year.  He will be a great help during the playoffs, if he continues to play like he has since being back.

    I went out on a limb and suggested in the poll earlier this season that JO would be the one who would make the most difference in the play offs. Now that we have a different cast I might have to hedge my bets but I still believe that if we don't over play him he could be a big difference maker. It's nice to see what his defensive presence makes to KG and the rest of the team!

    I admit it.  I thought JON was done for good, not just for this year.  But so far, so good.  Crossing my fingers that his knee stays healthy through the playoffs.

    um how do you know Baby is 6'9"??? Do you work for the Celtics? Did you actually measure him yourself? Are you friends with Big Baby? Just curious as to how you know!

    NO S-H-I-T! ainge and doc are in far better positions to judge these things than are all the board GMs with their chronic negativity and hysterics!ainge made it clear a long time ago that jo would be quite fine and as good as he was earlier last year when he was somewhat dominant in miami! he may get hurt but so could PERK! thats the risk you take. we have 5 center options! plus 2 other guys not even on the roster. what more could doc had done.. and yep 4 out of those guys are as good or even better than PERK ever was!

    I agree CC. I think with JON starting the C's will be tough on D again even if Shaq doesn't contribute alot.  Kristic is perfect for the 2nd unit, he can score and hits the offensive boards to give that unit more scoring punch to keep the C's in the lead when the starters rest. West is really starting to impress now too. Let the playoffs begin already this season is too long.

    JO knows this is it for him BBall wise and he is playing with a sense of purpose and urgency. Even if Shaq can't go with this line up and maybe 5-10 good minutes from Murphy we can win it. The second unit is starting to gel just in time and if JO can give us 25-30 for 20 games I think banner 18 will be ours. Don't get me wrong I want Shaq back but watching JO play the last couple of games I think he's looking stronger than he did earlier this year,which should be big boost in the 2nd season.

    Hoping he stays healthy is just that:  HOPE

    Don't count on Pussmaine O'Neal.

    minny fan:

    FLUID...exactly what I was thinking.  His knees are fine (for now anyway).  This is gonna sound crazy, but he reminds me of Pervis Ellison.  Regardless of Pervis' shortcomings he always moved like a cat on defense.  JON moves like a cat.

    Also, to reiterate, our 5 spot has Shaq, Baby, Jermaine and Kristic.  I can tell you that when you add KG to the bigs and use Troy Murphy to hack the crap out of opponents, that Gasol and Bynum and Artest and Odom will not dominate the paint.   Same with Noah and Boozer.  The Bulls will SORELY miss Brad Miller.  If we ever face Orlando, Howard will cause a problem.  That's the place we might miss Perk.

    If the Finals end up Celts vs Lakers, I predict Shaq breaks Bynum's nose on general principle.

    Pussmaine may be a bit harsh, but it is true that he hasn't been the healthiest guy throughout his career.  If he can stay healthy, he is a good fit for this team even in limited minutes.  Admitted big IF.

    Re: Jermaine looks like another player since surgery

    I went to the game last night, and got a chance to see O'Neil move around.  He looked a lot better than I expected him to.  Almost light on his feet.  If he can avoid snapping off any more pieces of himself, he's going to give us some quality minutes.  With his pass happy supporting cast, he's going to get easy opportunities to make himself look better than he actually is, and that makes me feel just fine.  More importantly, he had his hand right in the face of every shooter anywhere in his area code. 

    He's smarter than people think, I think.

    JO looks like Jo, he avg 13 7 1.4 just last year, thats the type of player he can be when hes healthy, and now hes playing motivated and focusing on the defensive end, with him and kg we probably have the best 4 and 5 defensively against the pick and roll in the league.

    JON is playing 15 to 20 good minutes and is producing.  The guy is healthy now and was a five time All-Star in his career.  Referring to him as if he is a weakling is not fair considering he has come back gangbusters since the first Celtic incarnation earlier this year.  He is a gutty good guy trying to contribute.

    Maybe. Put it this way, I gave up on him earlier in the year and if he miraculously can stay healthy all the way through, then I'll be thrilled.

    He has looked great and I'm thrilled. One worry, though for me is how springy the legs are.  

    Been a few times when he hasn't shown much in the leaping department. Like when he didn't even jump for that jump ball the other day, and in Atlanta a throw down he didn't finish from Rondo. Hope it's  just a timing thing.
