[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Wow! Tony Allen makes the news. : r, He was on terrible teams here.........and he started for those teams. Doc was developing him, then he got hurt going for that dunk. When he came back, he was never the same player offensively. Many others on this thread have said the same thing. Tony Allen had peaked as a player, he was never going to get any better............he is proving that now - check my post above. He took the money and the better offer, good for him. To answer your question, I believe Ray plays about 35 mins per game at the 2, is that accurate? So, you don't think some combo of West, Pavlovic, Wafer, Green or Arroyo could chase those guys for 13 mins? AND, give us more offense and fewer turnonvers? I'll take my chances with the new guys - but thanks for playing.

You never fail to disappoint! "Tony Allen has peaked as a player, he was never going to get any better....he is proving that now"
While I understand your player ratings are wildly popular, a more effective tool for those of us in this century is the "player efficiency rating". TA is currently the 10th rated SG at a per of 17.26. This "PER" ranks 76 SG in the league and TA is 10TH (Ray Allen is 9th) "So don't you think that some combo of West, Pavlovic, Wafer, Green or Arroyo could chase those guys for 13 minutes?"
I do not. West is too small and not strong enough. I question if Pavlovic is on the 12 man playoff roster. Ditto Wafer. Arroyo is much too small and slow and Green is much to big and not quick enough to cover any of the players mentioned.
Btw, Wafer's "PER" is #55 for all SG, Corey Brewer is #64 for all SG, Arroyo is #58 for all PG, Green is #54 for all PF. There's TA sitting at #9.
Seems to me that is exactly what the Celts could have used for the playoffs.
To get back on point, I feel Doc missed on TA, couldn't get the talent to translate on the court, where as the Grizz obviously (to all but you) did.
