ThrnPhl: Waxing_Chewbacca: Does Paul Pierce belong ahead of Kevin McHale on the celtics all time starting 5? Thoughts as he heads to the locker room? (crap)

He's certainly the most underappreciated player in the NBA. Pierce is gold.


Have to agree. He's been just a force for so many years but never gets the attention.

Thats sort of the issue. Bird would have to play the 4.

I still don't think Miami will win the title this year, they have better movement this year but they always fall too much into iso and their team breaks down because of it and it becomes a brick fest. To me, it is unacceptable for guys like Wade and Lebron to brick shots at the line, especially since they tend to drive and flop their way so much to get to the line. I think it's Spurs or Thunder, and I give the Lakers the same shot I give the Heat.
 
2012-05-06 08:43:25 PM  
Oh and here's the inevitable embarrassing blowout loss by Hawks. Most up and down team I can remember.
 
2012-05-06 08:43:49 PM  
understatement of the day 'a very tough game for atlanta'

i guess being down by 33 could qualify as tough but id probably 4 letter it up a bit

I hate the Celtics, but have to agree. Mostly because Pierce slaved away on teams that were going nowhere and had no help until Garnett and Allen arrived. McHale has more rings, but Pierce meant more to the Celtics over the course of his (yet to be concluded) career.

I think it will be interesting to see what happens with Rondo. Are they going to rebuild around him or use him to finance the rebuilding?
 
2012-05-06 08:49:38 PM  
Remember when Bulls fans said they'd be fine without Rose because they held their ground in the regular season when he was out? That was a fun time.

I think they keep him. They're not in bad shape at all for next year. Pierce is still under contract and playing well, they'll have two open max contracts, and if you can resign Garnett and Allen for smaller deals wouldn't you? Allen off the bench and KG setting the example for whoever they lure in with the max deals isn't a bad squad.

Yes, but Ainge is a moron, and he doesn't have McHale to help him out, so...ya never know ;-)

Ugh that's a whole lot of nothing. Some stiffs are about to get overpaid. Linn and Lucas will get some nice paychecks for showing some potential this year. I was suprised to see Earl Boykins is still in the league. I loved him when he was a Nugget but lost track of him over the years. Maybe we can get him back in free agency!

They are actually a pretty decent team, better than they were with Melo, very balanced but no stars.

lakers looking very slow and beatable on the road.

they definately arent going to be favored against the 'good' teams in the west, thunder, dallas, spurs, or lakers (in that order).

Ill believe the nuggets are a better team when they get to the conference finals, until then they seem to be a very similar team as far as talent. There is definitely an amount of bitterness in the denver area about melo because he rejected them, i dont think they are a better team without him, but they arent much worse

They've had a ton of injuries this season. McGee hasn't been boneheaded yet in Denver, so I'll be curious how they do when healthy next season.

Doogled: They've had a ton of injuries this season. McGee hasn't been boneheaded yet in Denver, so I'll be curious how they do when healthy next season.


but not to belabor the point, isnt the strength of denver their depth, im not sure it actually hurt them too much by getting their bench some more playing time. I could well be wrong, outside of chandler and gallonari missing time i cant really think of any injury that has set them back.

but we will definitely see,

2012-05-06 11:22:43 PM  
I just dont think denver has a finisher and without a lead going into the 4th (or even a leader on the floor) they will have a definite uphill battle.
 
2012-05-06 11:29:50 PM  
True, but I think you guys can pull this one off.
 
2012-05-06 11:29:51 PM

2012-05-06 11:43:48 PM  
either way kobe is in the game for the rest of the night which is not a good sign being down 2 already. where the nuggets are going to turn for leadership is still a question.

/now down 4 but shooting fts

Ooh, make-up call on Gallinari. For #5.
 
2012-05-06 11:46:45 PM
