[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Key Stat for the Celtics in 2010-11 : I'd agree R'ski but I don't see Danny wanting to spend $5M or more for him given the two year plan to rebuild. That $ would be better spendt for a SF backup or a young PF with length. Put BB in a 6'10" frame with hops and wingspan and he'd already have a 3 yr contract. They could resign him as a FA for 1 yr but if a trade comes along that involves him, I'm afraid Danny pulls the trigger ... that's how I see it, not necessarily how a feel about him... Understand?

I do understand, and I also must admit that I don't think like that, I'm more of a naive, emotional fan who gets really attached to players, and I've gotten really attached to Big Baby, though I was incredibly angry with him for his foolishness last pre-season. His hustle and play down the stretch, though, caused me to forgive and forget that faux pas, shall we say.
I was almost ready to write him off last season for his lack of hops and his inability to finish at the rim, getting his shot blocked all the time nearly drove me crazy.
But all of a sudden he got an up-fake, and he got hustle and good things started to happen when he was on the floor, not the least of which was a huge spike in energy when he came off the bench.
Maybe it's wishful thinking, maybe it's the fan-boy in me, but I think Baby will build on the good things he did last year and be a key player in the C's success this year.
But then I think Delonte West will also be a key factor in the C's success. What do I know.
Right now it's all good, right. All that's left to do is to play the games.
The easy part is officially over.
