    But we could be better given a few trades and still get that lottery pick anyway ... wouldn't that be a nice surprise ... PP & KG, the gift that keep giving.

    We could win the division if we sit Olynyk.

    Counting on Ainge to trade Gerald Wallace, it's not going to be easy but he has to give it a roll...Wallace is playing too hard and too well. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1862172-can-boston-celtics-find-a-take-for-gerald-wallaces-bogus-contract

    and Danny's far from ready to do a Rondo deal.

    http://celticshub.com/2013/11/25/rajon-rondo-has-been-participating-in-practice-drills/

     

    Brad Stevens said he’s been mixing in Rajon Rondo into 5-on-0 drills during practice. “So he’s ready when the time comes.”

    Said Stevens on Rondo: “We’re doing some things that fit him better than anybody else.”

    Now, it’s worth noting that 5-on-0 is FAR from 5-on-5 full court, which is usually the final hurdle, and the Celtics are (correctly) in no hurry to get Rondo back ahead of schedule. But this report is exciting for a couple of reasons.

     

    Stevens’ 5-10 record belies the job he has done coaching these players thus far. He seems to combine Xs and Os with advanced stats in a way that is advanced for his relative youth in NBA years (see: Avery Bradley playing shooting guard, Jared Sullinger receiving more minutes, etc), so when he says the Celtics are doing things that will fit Rondo better than anyone else, it’s an exciting prospect. Rondo is currently this team’s building block, and an offense built around his skillset very well might take on his unique, enigmatic approach to the game. That’s an intriguing proposition.

    Even more intriguing is the prospect of finally seeing Rondo and Stevens work together. All summer we heard rumors of how Stevens was interacting with Rondo and picking his brain for ideas on how the team should be run. We would like to believe that this will lead to chemistry, and with their combined IQs and reported respect for one another, it’s hard to imagine they will clash.

     

    This is why I think we may see a new team concept outside of the norm of 2-3 superstars carrying a team... it may be an entirely new concept around Rondo with player flexibility as far as positions and abilities. Fun to see what happens when RR returns and if they get better what direction Danny's plan takes based on the division/conference standings at that point. He could be forced to change gears ... time will tell.
