In response to Fierce34's comment:
Who keeps complaining about Doc when everyone here knows Doc will not be leaving any time soon!
If you had a high IQ then you would have known that no matter how big of a crybaby you are here, Doc will still be the coach of the Boston Celtics.
It's simple, acie, we already know you're bitter about losing BBD and that you don't like Doc. But it doesn't help if you keep complaining and whining every single day!
And you want to talk about class?
Let's start by changing that picture of yours because that's the perfect example of what is NOT class!
yes, low IQ and low class- cracking jokes about mass shooting sprees at this point in time.
i guess since i moved away from boston a few years ago the press is really behaving itself more than ever. group think. i always wondered why things never got "said" in the papers ever since pitino showed up and crapped up the place.
if you are an independent thinker, then evaluate and tell me what doc rivers is doing a good job at right now. that's all. jeff green, courtney lee, jason terry, brandon bass are all playing below their levels of skill in functionality for this team. we had a darko who looked functional in the pre-season and was just iced on the bench until he quit in the regular season- we had so much talent at the 5 on this roster that we could really see how that made sense over here in reality.
i don't care about glen davis and doc rivers the people. i care about functionality and winning. davis delivered us positive results in a winning system. we have not been the same since they got rid of him, no matter how much you want to pretend bass was a great player for us last year. the FAILURE at hand is the ongoing failure, 2nd year of it now, for danny to bring in someone to mop minutes at the 5 who is good at it. the solution was just so haphazard it was disgusting- like tricks cheapo used car salesman pull and try to make sound good- "let's make KG the 5!!!"
well it's not working out so good. sure he can do some spot 5. but not 30 minutes a night. dumb dumb dumb idea. i don't just dislike the functionality of doc rivers the man but danny ainge the GM is failing us hardcore. if you want to get rid of davis then that's fine. just bring in pieces that WORK in his stead. NOT DONE. by now we should have a backup point guard for rondo. but we let dooling go- veteran minimum is just too much and the keys are not being handed to terry very much now are they.
so these individuals matter not to me. it's what they mean to the team and our W-L. i am happy for davis that he is still improving. i am shocked and saddened to see bass going down the drain. i am disheartened to watch jeff green in green this year. i don't understand why courtney lee doesn't fit and work well. jason terry is way off, and he may start coming around but i never would have thought he would have gotten this far off.
a couple or a few isolated rotten things are one thing, but everything coming up rotten, fierce, and you don't need a lot of fish oil caplets to crack the safe combination on this..... most teams are able to conclude that their coach is a 3 dollar bill, and make an appropriate decision. if i was ownership, and i wasn't just a jock sniffing bozo, i would also be able to see that ainge's time has come and gone.
it's just that simple. it's not being bitter about people it's about being bitter about lack of ability to flat out replace functionality between bodies and talent and roles and then the talent that is brought in that should "work" is turning up in a funk everywhere you look. doc rivers did not develop anything that the celtics have right now. not one player. avery bradley would still be bench bait if ray allen didn't get hurt, same for glen davis, and so on and so forth. what kind of a coach takes an athletic, albeit unconventional and not graceful, yet could be effective #4 like bass and tell him he can't post up any more? these are things that doc rivers does.
he needs to be relieved of his duties so real celtics fans who know what they are looking at can be relieved of their misery. this is yet another season, not as much as last year, but always to be considered: one or two injuries can completely change the playoffs landscape and a team like us, if functioning well, could get it done.
instead we are mailing it in. and failing where failure should not be found- effort, heart, hustle, integration of new players.
