[QUOTE]Shaq is significantly benefitted by ebing on a veteran team with a "no-nonsense" coach. He does look in better shape and if can avoid injury and accept being a 2nd banana, the Celtics should be stronger. It's just too early in the season and there are too many intangibles to predict how it all plays out. There is no doubt that the Celtics, a least on paper, should be in the thick of things at the end. Now pray that Doc doesn't over-play his vets to the brink of exhaustion before the playoffs while he lets his bench rot on the pine.

Once again, confusing Doc and Phil, rsalas67 wrongfully assumes we are all idiots and don't know that phil jackson plays his starters more than anyone in the league. Can't see a change in that this year, unless Theo Rat-stiff gets a lot of mins. Sure, Fisher, who was insulted with his contract offer will see less time now that Blake is here. I'm sure he'll be very happy about that.
Sasha wants mins.............but Bryant will once again play as much as he wants to (the reason phil is such a great coach, he lets MJ and koME dictate how much they will play), and they have Shannon Brown. I'm sure Sasha will be very happy about that.
Matt Barnes, who has started every year he's been in the league, will help spell Ron Artest, until Bynum gets back, then Odom takes that role.....or Walton. Yes, I'm sure Mr. 8 teams in 8 years will be very happy with limited mins at the end of phils bench.
That's it! When Bynum comes back, phil will go back to another 7 man rotation with Bynum switching with Barnes.
7 deep - but Doc plays his vets more........nice job!! Love lakers fans!
