Worst Case Scenario

    Worst Case Scenario

    We've discussed our hopes for players on the roster to develop into potential stars, but a look at the WORST case scenario for this team is very bleak.  In fact, a more realistic outcome this year  is a blend of the best and worst case.  I would not be surprised if 3 or more of the following happen:

    Rondo:  Does not regain his full potential after his comeback from injury.  Not really a top tier PG and no longer of interest to other teams in trade. This makes him even more petulent.

    Sully:  Reinjures his back.  Future career in the NBA is in jeopardy.

    Fav:  Turns out to be as bad of a Center as we all fear.  We need to play Oly and other PFs at the center position. 

    Oly:  Summer league does not translate to real world NBA.  He isn't athletic enough to compete at PF and he gets bullied underneath at Center.  Yi Jainlain anyone?

    Bradley:  Never does regain his confidence and outside shot.  He is what we saw in the playoffs last year... dispensible.

    Green:  Continues his inconsistent play.  

    Brooks:  Can't play D and Stevens won't tolerate it.  

    Hump, Wallace and Bogans: Know their time with the Celtics is brief and unwanted.  They play with no desire, energy and a bad attitude. 

    I don't expect to much contribution or impact from others on the roster one way or the other.

    Re: Worst Case Scenario

    If you end up being right about Sully, then degenerate gambler Danny has rolled snake eyes for the 2012 draft ....

    Wroten, Plumlee, Moultrie, Jones, Teague, Ezeli or Taylor anyone?

    Re: Worst Case Scenario

    I think Sully was a good gamble at 21 regardless.  Unlike Melo, who had little experience and no proof of skills, Sully was a legit top 5 pick in the draft, sans injury.  His upside is still off the charts.  

    Maybe the surgery will make his back stronger than normal?  I just don't know the prognosis of full recovery after disc removal.  I do know that back surgery (without disc removal) has plaqued and persisted with a number of NBA players, including Bird and Dwight Howard.  So there are two questions: will he be as good as he was before surgery and is his back more fragile and prone to reinjury as a result of having the discs removed??

    As long as Sully does his exercises religiously and maintains his weight, he should be good to go... no restrictions... and with better flexibility than he's had in a long time.

    [/QUOTE]Sully is young and healthy and strong and will do fine with herniated disc surgery. He is also exceptionally motivated.... and had the finest of minimally invasive surgery techniques no doubt. 

    Us middle aged and older sedentary type over-weight lazy-azz desk jockies do less well with back surgery because we were never in shape to begin with.

    He'll do fine... fine... fine. No problemo.

    With R9R's ACL surgery... I haven't a clue.

    2nd gain issues cloud prognosis big time.

    Oh, ok, I understand your point.  But I believe that most professional athletes are very motivated to maintain their health and careers.  The issue is that the excessive repeated stress of intense physical competition makes them more injury prone as well.

    I hope that your prognosis is correct.  It will be great for the Celts if it is correct.  I am certainly hoping that it turns out to be correct.

    Re: Worst Case Scenario


    Worst case scenario is they win a couple of games against bad teams to start the season. Kelly has feet problems,and turns into Greg Oden injury wise. 

    Rondo helps this team win, but wants out,and they have to trade him for less then his worth.

    Wallace plays alot,but they can't sucker anyone into trading for his horrible contract.

    They play hard and win 29 to 35 games.

    There are 2 best case scenarios,and 1 more likely then the other,so I will root for Rondo to be held out longer,and them to play Olly alot,and hope his offense is great,and defense really bad to lose.

    Danny is a great drafter,but he can only do so much picking in the middle of the pack. He swings for the fences most times,which you have to do in today's NBA draft.

    He has hit homers with Rajon Rondo, Al Jefferson, but also has struck out with Gerald Green and Fab Melo.

    He also has struck out just trying to make contact, J.R Giddens, Gabe Pruit, Marcus Banks or hit singles or doubles with Tony Allen, Jared Sullinger,Big Baby.  

    He also has hits on homerun swings, Kendrick Perkins.

    So swing for the fences and try to hit homers,because playing it safe has failed 3 times,and only nets average players usually,when it works out.
