Wow, P34. Seems you're posting the same words over and over on this topic. Almost as if you've moved from just "criticizing" KG to "contempt" for KG. Earlier this year, we all loved him for his fire and his ability to motivate the D (and many of us still do!!). He was voted the most important and valuable Celtic on this team due to his defensive leadership. Now if he isn't posting up and shooting a lot, you imply he's soft and not aggressive as if we got him for his offense!!. He gets praised for his passes to his teammates for their easy baskets when we win then chastised and challenged and criticized for not being aggressive when the TEAM loses a couple of games (even with all the injuries the team has).
I wonder why you spend all this time criticizing KG and no time talking about Pierce's fall off in production (which happened BEFORE the flu symptons). Could it be that you've moved to the hater phase on KG when times have gotten tough? You wouldn't be a fair weather KG fan now would you?
Spend some time criticizing Pierce equally (which I've NEVER seen you do). After all, they ALL played poorly in losses so why is it one player takes the brunt of your "challenges". Face it, the biggest falloff has been PP's play!
In Jan, Pierce shot 54%, had 4.8 reb/gm, and scored 20.4 ppg. In Feb so far, he shot 42%, 4.4 reb/gm, and scored 16.4 ppg. Wow, I wish he would be more aggressive. NO EXCUSES, why doesn't he just step up????? Aren't those YOUR words when a player is not playing as well?????
Now - I love PP. I am not mad at him and I think he'll be fine. I don't criticize him for a few bad games. It happens. You need to think the same way about KG. Have some faith in your team and stop blaming one player when we all know what's going on with the TEAM and their back to backs and their injuries!
And when we win and KG has the exact same stats, I want to you criticize him in the wins to show your objective balance, ok?
Celts Defense will prevail in about 40 minutes. Go Celtics!
