Do you know what I like?
I like when people try to make an excuse for a game that should of been won regardless who the other team was. Like, remembering that we dont have Dwight and a bunch of young players, or we have a new coach and new system, or whatever else you can throw out there to make it feel better.
The problem is these excuses dont cover up the awful play of our players during the game, it doesnt cover up the fact that these guys are getting paid millions to give it their all, to execute, to defend, to rebound, to contest, etc.For those who know me, I dont like holding hands of our team and telling them its going to be okay as they play out of control, making simple mistakes.
The rookies I will give a slight pass on, I wont be as harsh on them as I am with the Vet's. The one thing I would like to see from Moe and Nich is for them to be a little more aggressive on the offensive end. For Quinn, I just want him to see some real minutes in the paint.... you know the area where we give up 40+pts per game in.......
As for the Vets.....
Nelson - Good game, but needs to bring it like this every game... specially when the execution on offense is lacking
JJ - Good Game, just keep playing hard
Arron - Slow down killer..... let the game come to you and work it from there. Your like going 90 when everyone else is trying to get up to 35.
Glen - Set better screens, Stop forcing yourself into the paint when there are 3 ppl there (which is the same reason why the Dwight/Glen experiment didnt work). Lose some weight, and get some of your quickness back. Also understand that you are not "The Man" that is going to take a team on his back.... not that you dont have the right attitude... you just dont have the right skill set.
You above all people should know this coming from Boston and winning a Championship. Start acting like it. You know where your sweet spots are..... and its not the 3pt line. You would of never jacked one of those up on a Celtics team....why start now.
