Taking Stock: C’s-Heat

Taking stock

After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players… and maybe coach's… performance.  If we like what we see, we're buyin'.  If we don't, we're sellin'.  Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game

BuyPaul Pierce:  The man who hasn't played a minute yet has shown us all that he's horribly indispensable.  As I said in the recap last night, the man is not only capable of scoring points by creating his own shot, he's a calming influence on the offensive end of the court.  The C's need his steady hand in the line up.

Rajon Rondo: He had a couple of bad plays at the end of the game, but overall, another stellar peformance.  When you're trying to do everything, you're going to make mistakes. 

Ray Allen:  He has been flipping off Father Time for years now.  When he gets hot, forget it.

Keyon Dooling: This may go down as the most underrated move of the season if he keeps this up.

SellSasha Pavlovic:  And I mean this literally.  Sell him.  Hell, give him away.  Pay a team to take him.  Trade him for Brian Scalabrine.  Anything.  

Avery Bradley:  I know he's still young, but I wonder if he's ever going to get it.

HoldKevin Garnett:  I'm going to keep KG in the "hold" category until Pierce comes back.  He's not young enough to do certain things anymore, but I'm just wondering if having the spacing that Pierce provides will give him the room to do more than what he's been doing.  After a couple of games with "Core 4" fully intact, we'll have a better idea of how much KG will be able to give.

Jermaine O'Neal:  He's going to look bad against these super-athletic teams.  He's going to look worse when he's in foul trouble.  He's just going to have an up-and-down season.

  • Agree with everything… but when will Moore get his shot? i’m so anxious to see him…

  • Sasha Pavolvic: Proving once and for all that a white guy can be bad enough to be loathed in Boston.

  • I’d like to see Moore as well. We heard a lot about his confidence during preseason, I’d like to see him get his chance. As for Avery, it just ain’t happening. He’s stellar when he plays in the D-League, but he just doesn’t show anything when it comes to a real game.

  • People have to be realistic…this is a “lost” season.
    They`re trying to compete without a legitimate center, without a “defensive anchor” in the paint. No team can successfully pull that off.
    They are presently an old, soft, fragile, finesse team…the type of team that scares nobody.
    To his credit, Ainge tried hard to upgrade the roster {Paul, West}. It was not meant to be.
    What`s important to keep in mind is that Ainge will have a boatload of money to spend next summer. I`m confident he`ll spend it wisely.

  • I don’t find value in moral victories with a veteran team like ours, but I also feel it’s a bit premature to say the season is lost. You should check out Thomsen’s account at SI.com and Berger’s piece at CBS Sports.
    Its only two games against stiff competition and until Pierce is back and the team has had a chance to gel we shouldn’t draw any conclusions. If we’re looking bad at the 20 – 25 game mark, then there will be reason to panic.

  • like i said to John on twitter..gotta cut Sasha some slack..guy has had to go against the 2 best Small forwards in the word…they are both good/athletic enough to make ANYONE look bad..he was 2-4(and Wade got away with a hit on the arm when he shot that fade away..no call) in 13 mins against LBJ and used his fouls well..i mean did you really expect a triple double out of him?
