Perkins and the Celtics were better off together

After the game tonight, the TNT studio guys pointed out that the Celtics used to be about defense and intimidation. Now they have what's left of Jermaine O'Neal instead of Kendrick Perkins while waiting for what's left of Shaq to play 10 minutes tops per game and "save our season"
And you can see that Perkins is almost completely out of place on the young, athletic Thunder, only serving to allow Ibaka to play power forward.
Oh, and it's not like Jeff Green is playing spectacular defense on LeBron James like I was willing to believe he was here to do.
With Jeff Green, in two years the Celtics will be the Charlotte Bobcats: long, fast, and remarkably mediocre with no chance at contention.
