Re: KG Should Retire; Pierce Must Be Waived

remember with Rondo, Bradley, Lee, Terry, Crawford and Williams.....we have a GUT of Guards on this roster next year. Even without Williams on that list 5 guards is a LOT!
Pierce, Green, Bass, Sullinger give us 4 forwards in the rotation
Garnett and Melo need HELP at center!!
hopefully Ainge can trade one of our guards for a decent Back up center (at least) and we get another PF in the draft who can be brought along.
You're absolutely right. We have a glut at the guard position, yet we still need more scoring. The thing is you just can't predict who is going to be hot and who is going to get cold. You can't blame Danny. Who would have known that Terry & Lee would be iced this year? Their career stats do not indicate that. Crawford is as advertised.
The thing is, we can trade away Terry & Lee to go get a hot scorer for next year, but we could be facing the same predicament.
CASE IN POINT: J. J. Reddick - we were all gushing over his scoring abilities. Milwakee bit and look at him now ... where was he in game 1? Nowhere.
Also look at JR Smith ... he is as hot as he has ever been right now. Last year's playoffs? He was the guy who would shoot every time he touched the ball whether they were going in or not. If he was a FA this summer, I bet some team would pay him Harden-esque money, and there is the same chance that he reverts back to the old J.R.
