What Do You Mean “Couple Of Weeks?”

KG's knee scares the hell out of me.  To see someone pull up lame with no contact is frightening.  And one side note is not sitting well with me.  Danny Ainge told the TNT crew at halftime:

"He's resting right now… It's been bothering him for a couple of weeks."

Hey Danny, you know what happened over the past couple of weeks?  The All Star break.  If this is true… if he's been bothered by it for a couple of weeks… then why didn't he just sit out the All Star game?  Why was he risking injury on a gimpy knee?  That didn't make me happy at all.

But I was happy that KG tried to give it a go in the second half.  Doc made the right move by not forcing it.  As much as they needed him to get some stops down the stretch, they're better off sitting him right now.

Which might move this into "blessing in disguise" territory.  Last year it was the ab strain.  This year, and extra week or two off to rest a knee that's not that badly hurt could provide a little more energy for him at the end of the season.  Of course, this is all contingent on this being nothing more than a strain.

    Maybe we should have hung on to Solomon. Has Pruitt lost his confidence or what? We know he has the talent. But his mojo is gone. Hopefully some of his shots start falling. Hoping to see Walker play some, bit a DNP

    The refs continue to disappoint on all ends. This isn’t a Celtic-bias thing…bad calls are happening all over! When is it going to stop?

    There’s too much special treatment going to stars. Donny Marshall pointed it out last night when Pruitt got a BS call for guarding Williams in the open court. Stars get the benefit of the doubt way too much. This needs to be fixed.
    And Dick Bavetta needs to retire. The dude is 95 years old – how can he effectively ref this game?
