    The guy the Celtics really missed = Rasheed Wallace

    His ability to hit big shots and space the floor at the 5. The ability to give the Celtics a legitimate backup center for Jermiane.
     
     Garnett more rest and making it harder for the Heat to play small ball.

    I definitely agree with you about Rasheed.  I tried to start threads about him several times, but got very few responses.  It may have been possible to sign Rasheed when we had open roster spots available.  If he had a chance of playing a few games before the playoffs started, he could have helped during the playoffs, (if he was in reasonably good shape).  One poster said it was possible that Danny had contacted him and he really didn't have any interest in returning.  We will never know if this ever happened.  It is just interesting that several NBA analysts heard rumors about him returning.  I remember reading about this or seeing them discussing this at some point during the season.

    'Sheed /> Troy Murphy

    Absolutely agree.  Rasheed in a shortened season was a low risk proposition.

    i love sheed...I was dying for him to come back midway in the season.
    im sure the celtics would have signed him.
    but i guess rasheed just didnt want to give it another shot.

    I loved him too but he would not have helped...the only way this team improves is through young legs...bench legs!

    I like Sheed as well.  But he is old!  I would have taken him over Troy murphy any day though!

    He wouldn't have been the missing piece, but could have helped to give KG and Jermaine rest.  It never hurts to have another big man.  Especially since Shaq never returned.  He isn't Shaq, but still could have helped this team in the playoffs.  Also considering how ineffective Davis was in the playoffs this year, he probably would have been better than Glen.  We can only speculate how much/little he may have helped this team, since he never returned.

    If Sheed was in 2009-10 playoff shape, he could have helped... but the guy has been out almost a year.. even when he played for us, it took him 90% of the season to get in shape and only in the playoffs did he play like someone of value...

    In case you forgot, Sheeds typical game was jog back and forth between foul lines and chuck up a 3... when he wasnt daydreaming about who knows what..

    Bringing him back (if he even wanted to) out of shape and with his poor work ethic would not have helped us...imo

    Who they missed was a healthy shaq.  20-25 minutes of a healthy shaq=win over miami.  They had no answer to him.  C's risked him being healthy for streatch run, and with green to BU pierce and garnett they would have been stacked.

    I missed Sheed.  He drove me crazy in the regular season but in the playoffs, he stood up tall.  Agree 110% that he would have spelled KG well and would have given us low post scoring and rebounding (hmmmm, is that something we REALLY missed - YES!).  He wouldn't have been good for a full year (taking away younger guys' minutes) and wouldn't want him for the upcoming season (getting too old) but down the stretch after the all star break this year, he would have provided key spot minutes and been in some kind of shape for the playoffs.   This is especially true given Shaq's condition.

    I keep saying - Danny.....you REALLY need to rethink your medical staff's advice.   They COMPLETELY failed you.   A better bet than Murphy or Sasha would have been Wallace for just one year.
