    Pierce is done

    PP got torched by Korver tonite it's like he is in quicksand . His shot is flat. It is really sad to see a super star fade

    he's OLD! he should be traded or coming off the bench. green should start. and there's no way that he should have been guarding korver. that's doc's fault. this team sucks.

    I think we held on to PP for a bit too long past his sell-by date.  Guess we're paying the price for misplaced sentiment.

    danny did exactly what he said he wouldn't do: hold onto his aging stars too long. he's repeated the mistake we made with the original big 3.

    Pierce isnt done... he just needs to play limited minutes and come off the bench..  If the C"s had a good coach, we might have seen it happen long ago

    Re: Pierce is done

    Doc has done a very poor job handling any of the Big 3 regarding their PT or changing roles as the years have passed them and the franchise by.

    RA bolted after being flogged to death by way too much playing time the last few seasons... and CPP and KG are obviously wearing out at this point too.

    They may not want to hear it but doc needs the courage to tell them that their PT will be managed tightly from here on out... win, lose or draw.

    Never too late to change coaching strategies but we are getting very close.

    Otherwise, doc is a dead duck short-timer.

    Re: Pierce is done

    PP did lose this game and Doc is also to blame. Pierce is not done he needs to come off the bench and play 20 or so for now Green needs to play 30+ and start. At this point we are like a family or business group that is at a crossroads dealing with a habit was once a great character point that has tipped to a dibilitating  habit that needs an intervention. Pierce is a hall of famer, Doc  is a very good coach,Pierce is the only player who has been with Doc since day one,players respect and like Doc this  bond and unity that was once the core asset of this team has become it's biggest inhibator. PP is the abuser,Doc the enabler and the unity and devotion of the unit has become the enabler that has been accepting blame for faults that our not theirs and apologizing far acts they have not committed deflecting blame for those who deserve it who, for at least for now are refutiating accounability and denying the results of their recent actions by both the abuser and enabler out of percieved obligation to the unit. This now at crisis point to either try to look in the mirror with candid reflection and choose to accept your recent digressions and go forward or to cling to the rationizations of said regressive habit and fall further into the abyss of decline and spiraling failure.

    Maybe PP's recent struggles have more to do with worrying about being traded than being old or wearing down. Maybe he has heard and knows a lot more than we do. it happened to ray. He struggled as the trade deadline approached.

     

    just a thought

    Re: Pierce is done

    I understand why Ainge held on to Pierce given our conference finals appearance last year, but we're in a tough spot now. Yeah Pierce can come off the bench but not for a real good team, unless Jeff Green plays great. I think right now Doc has to start Green and have Pierce come off the bench. Cries for Pierce to be traded are not sensible, we wouldn't get much for him at this point. I'd rather see Doc start Green immediately, have Pierce off the bench immediately, and either it will work, or one of them will boost their trade value (hopefully), facilitating a deadline trade. 

    At this point Doc needs to take a chance on the young guys, it's not about accumulating wins at this point. 

    Pud I agree with your post, except: 

    "Otherwise, doc is a dead duck short-timer."

    Right now Doc has Ainge's full confidence. it's too bad as it would be better if Doc was on the hot seat and willing to take some major risks. But I don't think he is. He's also got a big long term deal the Celts are not likely to swallow. 

    But yeah, Doc needs to change his coaching style, we need to see what we have prior to this deadline.

    Pierce is not done if he ends up in OKC.

     




    I missed this.  Why would OKC want Pierce?  Kevin Martin is playing great.  Pierce isn't defending or scoring and they are going to give us a lottery pick AND Kevin Martin for him?

    Re: Pierce is done

    Last night's game was maddening. The second unit played their best ever this year in the first half. Running up and down and finding the open man. Lee, Green, and Terry--all firing on all cylinders. Atlanta couldn't buy a  basket.


    THEN Doc puts in the first unit and the lead starts to fade to about 19 at the half. Celtics won't/can't/don't play the full 48 full-throttle. They used to be the best at closing out close games. NO LONGER. No killer instinct.

     

    The chemistry within the team seems pretty bad!
