"unrivaled work ethic"
As mentioned before.....Ainge did a terrible job of signing and re-signing their FA. Terry, Bass, Courtney and Green are all signed to long term contracts and IMHO an overpaid price ( $5 to 8 mil each Player / each season / 3 seasons )....a bad combination in today's NBA with the new CBA.
The Celtics have NO choice but to ride it out and hope for a Playoff spot.
[I]Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
Anthem loves to ridicule people all the time but when you call his bs out he doesn't own it.
Why bring those old threads back if is not to make fun of Croz24? and I get accused of been a troll....
Here's on option providing Danny get's back on the court. But, I'm not sure I would do it. I'd have to see Danny back playing and see how the team responds before making a decision I think. And this would help the Celts to continue a playoff push, which I don't like.
If picks or other scrubs are needed so be it.
Pacers get Rajon Rondo
Celts get Tyreke Evans (RFA) and Francisco Garcia (team option)
Kings get Danny Granger
Frank Vogel says "Killer instinct, start strong, build a lead and then step on their throats."
Not that I agree with Croz but aren't you the same "scout" that keeps saying that X player sucks and X player is good but must of the time you are wrong? "Greivis Vasquez is like Troy Murphy" lol
Green is not as bad as you make him out to be, the guy previous to the hearth surgery was a pretty good player and one of the NBA up and coming players, yes he is not in the same area code Danny is but he is not garbage as you are making it sound either.

We can agree to disagree with Green all I know is I don't want him on my team and that's my opinion he is Monta Ellis esq in terms of being super overrated. You think Granger is bad defensively vzn? Watch Jeff Green play off bad defense
and stats back up that he hurts his team when he was on the court BTW. It isn't like I just made it up. I observed it with my eyes and then checked the advanced stats to make sure I wasn't just seeing things.
Grevis was a different story I hadn't watched him this year until Eric came back (i didnt make the comment about inflated #s until a week before Eric came back)and though he was probably just putting up better #s because Jack was gone.
about not watching players I havent watched TOR almost at all this year. I think I am going to go back and watch some Ed Davis tape the way they were talking about him it seems like he made a bigger improvement than Grevis. The Raps GM today said "Ed played his way into a trade" meaning he improved so much that he had value unlike the past 2 years so I want to see what all the fuss is about.
I absolutely invite you to "call my BS." That's what a message board is FOR. The best thing about the internet is that it never forgets. So go back and grab threads where I've said ridiculously wrong things, and I'll admit I was wrong. For the most part, though, that's not what you do. You don't tend to bring back old threads so we can see the arguments in context. Instead, you just toss off dismissive one-liners like "Well you think Granger's a better player than Melo" and then get puzzled why I'm not "owning it."
You would be SO much more effective in making your case if you'd get into the habit of quoting or posting a link.
In all honesty, I'd forgotten until I went back and read the thread who it was that was advocating for Jeff Green. I'd have posted the thread no matter what. Heck, I bumped a thread by a guy named "WetBob" for general consumption. Do I have a man-crush on him too?Why bring those old threads back if is not to make fun of Croz24? and I get accused of been a troll....
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
- Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
- Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
- Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Enjoy your time at PD!
I know you have a problem with Anthem but since when did you have a problem with P4E? C'mon man he's a good guy who knows his stuff. He's not a homer not even close so that shouldn't be an issue for you either.
Seriously man you really want to rethink the way your headed. I'm saying that as a friend on here, don't be baited into fighting with everybody it's not worth it. He didn't say anything here that should have you this riled up.
I dont want a single player from Boston honestly. Maybe Sullinger to take Hansbrough's spot? Garnett and Pierce are too old and too expensive. Rondo is the one piece they will hold onto. Plus he will be out for a long time so trading for him now is a terrible idea.
As for Green, of course I wouldn't want him now that he's had his heart issues. when Green was in SEA/OKC he was a near identical player to Granger in terms of style of play. Here's Granger and Green's first three years numbers (which is around the time that post was made), keeping in mind Green was the #3 option while Granger was the #1 option by year 3:
7.5ppg 4.9rpg 1.2apg 0.7spg 0.8bpg 46.2% 32.3% 77.7%

With injuries mounting, teams have begun inquiring whether Boston is willing to trade Jason Terry to get under luxury tax, sources say.
5:26pm - 1 Feb 13
I would take Jason Terry over DJ any day. I say make it so.
Avery Bradley or Rondo
I could get behind Augustin/Pendergraph for Courtney Lee!
