Unlike our beloved C’s of last year, our rivals has flipped-it-on early with impressive wins against good Western teams.
This only mean one thing – it really will be LA coming-out iin the West, not the Spurs (especially now that Parker’s out for a month) nor Dallas.
What does this mean for Boston?
It means we really need to be extremely wise in filling-up our last 3 open spots.
In a way, it’s good that LA has “flipped-on” the switch early as it then makes us prepare for them all the more. (We really need to get better!!!)
What we need are:
1) One more reliable big man, maybe Troy Murphy now that he’s available. (He appears to be the best of all big man available).
2) A defensive-minded forward over a shooting/scoring wing since we now have guys who can really score or shoot outside (Green, Wafer, Kristic) to relieve our starters.
Leon Powe then comes to mind since Pierce is perhaps our only reliable defender on great SF like LBJ, Melo, & etc.
3) And most important of all, a 3rd PG because if anything happens to either West or Rondo (God forbid!), then we’re really screwed since Avebury is still very much inexperienced.
Of course, Delonte can indubitably play PG, but we really need a 3rd PG as a back-up just in case!
TJ Ford or Bibby are available, both wants to play for a true contender.
Who’s the better PG for our C’s brand of game?
LET’S GO CELTICS!!!
