    Self Serving Post Of The Week

    Celts can get away with Bass and Sully against Love and Pekovic because those Minny big men are not defensive minded bigs.

    But against bigs like Dwight, Drummond, Marc Gasol, and Roy Hibbert, Sully and Bass will be overwhelmed.

     

    Yes Sully and Bass are undersized but to say Love and Pekovic are soft and poor defenders as an excuse for the C's win over Minny has to be one of the most outrageous self serving posts of the week if not much longer.

    And while Drummond scored 14 pts with 16 rbds against the C's who lost by 1 pt  ... his current season avgs rounded off are 13 & 13, not exactly overwhelming as Fungus says. Sully had 19 & 8 while Bass had 11 & 7. Hump played 18 mins with 10 & 3 so Sully and Bass did most of the work against Drummond and Monroe ... Sully played 33 mins to Drummonds 38 and Detroit needed every second to win.

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Kevin Love is 6-10 but he's only averaging 0.36 blocks per game.

    Pekovic is 6-11 and he's only averaging 0.38 blocks per game.

     

    Even a 6-7 Brandon Bass is averaging 1.19 blocks per game.

     

    See the difference?




    No ... Drummond is only 6'10" and you said he'd overwhelm Sully & Bass ... He didn't come close unless you think 3 more rbds over his avg is "overwhelming."  Hahaha!!!

    And if Drummond is only 6'10" then Pek and Love are no lesser the obstacle to a 6'7" Bass and a 6'9" Sully ....

    You argue how good Love is one moment but put the brakes on others wanting the C's to pursue him saying there is no way the C's can get him or that Minny will let him go. And then to justify trading Bass, you rip him (and Sully for God only knows what reason) and you then say Love and Pek are not very good defenders. One moment you'd love to have Love and the next he's not very good .... ?????

    Now that Asik is out of the picture can we expect you to praise the play of Bass and Sully the next time the C's upset the favorite???? Whatever works for you, right?

    I think our young bigs, who are in a learning stage, have done pretty well against the better centers and is is ovious that we are improving game to game.  Fav need to play the center spot subed by KO, and Sullinger needs to play the power forward subbed by Bass.  We are rebuilding, so give them time and give Danny time to move Bass is holding up the development of younger players. I would keep and play Fav, KO, Sullinger and Hump they are not that bad and present problems for big centers that like to sit in the middle and wait.  Crawford has come a long way and it is time to get Rondo back in the game.  Rondo will make our bigs look better by getting them good open shots.  Crawford could be our near allstar sixth man.  By trade or draft we may in the near future get a real shot blocking 5, but for now our guys are not that bad and we are playing these teams close, so WHEREISRONDO.

    So, how long have the Celtics been without an effective center?  That position has been the most glaring hole for quite a while. Garnett was out of position trying to play there, certainly. This has been a long standing need.

    DA understood this when the crafted the Perk/O'Neals committee.  Injuries (and a trade - that I still like) intervened but it was an acknowledgement of a center's importance.
