    Keep 8, the rest go

    keep the core four, green, west, JON,  and bradley. might keep kristic  but only if he does not want to much, and that is unlikely, so he is most likely gone, and the rest are all junk that need to go: Big Baby, Murphy, Pavlovich, Wafer, and Arroyo.
    Shaq has retired, so 7 roster spots need to be filled intelligently, two with draft picks, and the others with free agents.

    I thought you were on to something until you said "7 roster spots need to be filled intelligently", and then I realized that danny ainge is your GM. Laughing

    Good luck!

    you're making a huge assumption that jerlame o'neal is going to be functional / even not retired by the beginning of next season.  the guy is a 3 legged horse.  it took him all year long to get fiddled into shape where he could play 15 playoff games. 

    will it even happen like that again?  i doubt it.  jerlame is probably all done.  if he stays on for 6 million it would be a travesty for his sporadic functionality vs. what we need at the 5.  we need a healthy 5 who is a defensive presence for all 82 games, not just a few regular season and then most of the playoff games.

    Well we dont have the cap space, so we get rid of all these mid to low level pay grade bench guys and replace them with.... different mid to low level pay grade bench guys?  I hope we can deal davis to some chump team that likes his hustle, because thats about all he brings to the table. Arroyo isnt needed with Ray, Rondo, and west.  We do need to look at some bruising Centers and PF's.

    We need to get scalabrini back lol.  He will probably have to play with a helmet, but man he can shoot and defend!

    In my opinion we have use for Wafer,Pavlovich and Murphy.They really never had a chance.Sasha is 6.7 good defender and can shoot 3,sNedds to learn the system.

    I also agree that the Celtics aren't going to have the cap space to change this team drastically and improve the bench significantly.   That was one of the problems that they had last season.  Having Shaq on this team last season was a great addition since he wasn't getting paid a lot.

    Good post , keep everybody that we can and sign a good big and we are on  our way to another good season.   If we don't do that then trade Rondo and Davis plus a draft choice for a good point, Williams or Paul and redefine the team with the point being the focal point.  If we don't do that then forget about winning and trade our assets the big four plus Green, West and Glen for good young talent and go through hell a year earlier that we need to.

    All we need according to Danny Ainge is to make our shots in the 4th quarter.  We have plenty of big men according to DA.  We know how to set picks, defend, rebound and provide toughness according to DA.  With Grren to start and Pierce to come in off the bench we are all set at SF according to DA.  With West, Allen and Rondo we are all set at the guard position according to DA.  KG can handle the PF position according to DA

    What are you all worried about.  DA says we are all set!

    Re: Keep 8, the rest go

    Ainge is right, we have a very good team, a little imagination by Doc, and a good big with the mid level and we should be looking a another very good season, and for you guys that dislike Danny , check the 20 years before we got him, when we were not even in the race for much.  IF you look at the HEat and Dallas you see that there are many good teams and sometimes it is the team that get on a roll that wins it all.  Could happen, at least we were in position for it to happen the last four years and it did happen once.    Great job Danny Ainge.

    Re: Keep 8, the rest go

    I like Rodney Stuckey in Green next season , think he'd be the perfect fit at both the point and shooting guard , overnight I think we would see Rondo's free throw shooting and overall outside shooting improve simply because of the competition.....also, Rondo's biggest weakness , his lack of ability to finish in the paint (blown point blank layup cost the Celtics the Miami series - they would have tied the series at 2-2) would suddenly vanish if he knew he had to put some effort into finishing instead of just flinging the ball up toward the basket...knowing there was Rodney Stuckey ready to comeo ff the bench and replace him

    Al Thornton is another player I like

    Loved getting JeffGreen but after seeing him in the bright lights ? Not as impressive as his OKC boxscores made him seem

    Posted by maryngary[/QUOTE]You're right on this point. However, unlike the Heat, Mavericks and Lakers, the Celtics went through several ownership changes. It was only when Pagliuca, Grousbeck, etc. acquired the Celtics in 2003 that the Celtics had an ownership with deep pockets and the willingness to spend big bucks to acquire major talent. The credit should not go to Danny Ainge entirely. The KG acquisition would not have happened without the Kevin McHale connection. This is no longer 2007. Our players have grown old by NBA standards. We can no longer compete consistently with the younger and more athletic teams. I, personally, cannot endure another season of watching our team limp through the regular season and run out of gas during the playoffs. We've got to drop this sentimentality over the so-called Big Four and make the necessary roster changes even if it means trading away KG or Rondo. This is the opportunity for DA to prove his real value as a GM.
