Besides the fact that the guy is my favorite Celtic, hands down the guy is really essential to what this team is trying to do. If you watched games last year teams really played him hard to prevent the three threat that he presents. I'm tired of seeing people on HIS case hes a shooter, every team needs a shooter he goes out and does his job and anything extra is a plus, but not expected. Rasheed on the other hand, is a big guy who can shoot....he is expected as the 6th man to defend, go down on the post, get rebounds and play his arse off.... has HE done that? No
How about "uno uno" or the "eleventh hour" or whatever that crap is. The guy is undersized at his position, a ok inside shooter w/ traffic, an average outside shot, a minus rebounder and shot blocker. But everyone wants to keep him aroudnd because they all remember him making one shot in the playoffs last year.
Or how about Tony Allen, we can all agree his value now is at its highest its been all season. We all know this guys deal, he's a turnover machine on offense but can defend really well. But he's untradeable to you all because of what hes done the last 3 games. You wont trade a guy whos brought in just to defend but have no qualms about trading away a very good shooter and energy source off the bench. Why not trade TA if you all insist on making a trade we all know his value isnt going to go much higher than what its at, and reality will set in on what he really is sooner or later and we will be SOL and stuck with the guy.
Also what happened to Ty Lue...thought the hype on signing the guy as a front office guy was he was going to practice with the team and play when we needed him....think we might need him yet?
