[QUOTE]how many "haters" are there? is it hate to pine for consistency and competence from this young lad? i can think of one actual hater who frequents the board, and that's it. so is it worth threads like this when rondo plays well like he should? i dunno. but at the end of the day, i refuse to confuse critical thinking and constructive criticism with the simple label of "hate" that is most often used these days for any sort of dissent whatsoever. how about the "let's stop the hate on the celts bench" campaign? i see a LOT of people griping on this board about how worthless green is, how fat davis is, all are worthless. wah wah wah. however, the realist will realize that you CANNOT undo the perkins trade and you can't go out and get OTHER PIECES that you didn't already get, so let's shut 'em up with the dumb condemnations of the bench maybe and ROOT for the team?

Well said. I know this post is negative to start off with and I harp on about negative post, but my complaints are about the folks who do nothing but complain, whine, etc. We all hope the Celts win #18, but if they don't the trolls will be out blaming Rondo, or Ainge for the Perk trade or anything else they can pick on without any common sense oe reasoning behind their thoughts.
I'm tired of hearing about how bad the Perk trade was. Folks seem to forget that we had "no" back ups for Pierce or Allen without that trade. Sure hated to see Perk go, but we had no one else of value to trade. The trade is done, this team hopefully will get it together and do well in the playoffs. If they win it all, great year. If they don't it's still been a great season.
We seem to forget there are 29 other teams in the NBA, and only one team can win it all. Great night to be a Boston fan, the Red Sox are up 3-0 tonight coming back after the poor start and will be in the hunt for the pennant, the Bs have tied up the series with Habs, the Celts are up 3-0 and despite losing to the Jets, the Pats were still 14-2 and will only be better this year with a loaded draft thanks to BB.
