just a (frustrating) thought with the game against the pacers

Even if we did get David West in the off-season, I think we would still not be a team that will beat a team like Chicago and Miami in the playoffs. Let us remember that in acquiring West, we would also lose JO on the other hand. A move that would even aggravate the C's situation with their lack of interior presence (although JO himself did not answer the problem in the present). In short, the move is not an answer to the C's problem with lack of an intimidating presence in the post and in the interior. KG will anchor the defense but only as a barker, and let (whoever they acquire in the future) be the player to bang inside ala Perk. Another point, if we did get West maybe the C's were not able to give a chance for players like Bass and Stiemy Boy to hasten their talents, and eventually adjusting to the team's system and contributing for the team to win games in the present

Believe me, I may be one of the most optimistic fan of this team. But after this game, I am gradually losing hope that we will not get banner 18 this season. On the other hand I consider this year as a bridge year, what I am really excited about is 2012, what I call "the Celtics year". In short, winning now is just a bonus to a much better future which will start next season. Still, as time goes by I can't help but remove my pessimism and hang on and believe with this group. Just one or two young talented players is all we need. Maybe a big, athletic and defensive minded Center and one guard/forward scorer off the bench.

I became excited when I heard that Ainge inquired about Cousins, that would just be perfect! But then again, that's just impossible to happen. He may be a headcase, but there is no doubt about his talent. Just recently, the Kings fired Westphal, a clear indication that they would rather keep a talented-headcase and priority him at all costs, even to the point of firing the coach he had feud with. Another name I thought of is Josh Smith. He has interested in going to Boston! And that's a very important factor. But then again, just not a wise move. His salary for next season is about 13 million, it will put the C's salary cap in great jeopardy and most especially, with that amount of money the C's could acquire a much better player than him. Michael Beasley is another option, and it would answer the C's problem offensively. A trade of him for JO would be okay, but are the C's willing to part with another big man for a young but one sided player?

Just a thought, are you willing to trade Rondo for Deron Williams? Don't get me wrong, I don't want the trade. But just imagine the scenario. Boston will have an upgrade in the PG position as far as PG ranking is concern, it will answer the C's offensive woes, they will have another go-to-guy besides PP, and lastly, they will have a chip that would attract Dwight Howard to go to Beantown.

Do you still believe with this team? Have faith, hang on, Banner 18 let's get it on!
