First I would like to say I would not want to trade Rondo for CP3 unless it was straight up and thats not going to happen. What we need is more scoring and some body's to take some of the big 3's minutes down. And we can solve 2 out of 3 of those with what we already have.
Scoring: think about this, if Rondo goes into the summer with the main focus of developing his shot like Rose did, in reality he would be the same caliber player as Rose. If Rondo developes his shot we have an MVP canidate with the big 3. This would open the offense a lot more because opponents couldnt sag off of Rondo. Part 2: Green, I say we resign Green. I believe with a full training camp adn the green light from the team he can become a good scorer.
Bench and taking down big 3 minutes: For Ray Allen is simple, re sign Delonte West. The man can flat out play its just injuries did him in. If healthy he can play 18 minutes a game at SG for Ray and 10 minutes for Rondo. He has the scoring ability also. For Pierce is simple, Green. Green definatley take minutes for Paul to keep him fresh for the 4th quarter where Paul looked tired against Miami. Then Green can play PF along side the big 4 in crunch time. Now KG, Big Baby is not going to do it. He has hit his peak already. Yes he is a nice player and playes pretty good D, but offensively he is uncomsistant and his over all size kills us. I think we should go this route. KENYON MARTIN. Yes I think we could get him on the chaep possibly. The man wants a championship and his a hell raiser on defense and on the boards. Him and KG could split minutes and man you wouldnt see a drop off. This will allow KG to play KG like later in the season and in games. He would fit well.
Center and the rest of bench: We need to be realistic, Dwight Howard is not walking through that door and Gasol is not going anywhere. So here we could be stuck. I would be happy with J.O and Kristic. I believe a fully healthy J.O splitting minutes with Kristic would be great. Both have nice mid range jumpers so defenses would have to stay honest. Shaq is done but if he decides to come bak i would pull a wallace and come back after the trade deadline so he has a full tank. That is best case scenerio without having to pick up a free agent or trade. Now if both oneils go I would still sign Kristic and maybe get a Joel Pryz..(sorry forgot how to spell) Like i said before Gasol, Howard and even Chandler is not realistically walking through that door. As for the reat of the bench I would look at free angency and the draft. Some guys we could pick up for vet mins possibly would be Grant Hill, Michael Redd, and Josh Howard.
With these raelistic changes I know we could be a title team next year. Now of course we have to hope we all stay healthy. Biggest key! RONDO...develope that shot! JJ
