Not that hes the best center in the league or even close, but he was the backline of that defense and they had no one to fill that gap once he was gone. Look at how MIA beat them, by driving the paint and having no intimidating presence there.

We lost to miami because once KG got to tired to keep rotating,helping and sealing off the paint Miami was getting right to the rack. We need a starting center who can dish out punishment and help KG protect the rim.

Garnett can do it for 30-35 minutes nowadays but he needs help back there. We get a defensive center, Jermaine plays the bench role move a couple other pieces on the bench and were right back in it

and a giant WTF at everyone saying Pierce needs to come off the bench because yall have to be kidding me

How do the Celtics expect to win games with their best player and scorer playing 25-30minutes? I know I've said this before, but you're an idiot.

This Celtics team struggle to score as it is, imagine how much points we'd score per game with Pierce coming off the bench getting reduced minutes.
Uhm, yeah..............sorry to break it to you, but its not 2003 anymore. Pierce is getting older...........bench or not, reduced minutes has to be the goal. Hell the Lakers paced Kobe this year (it didn't do any good, but it was the right idea).

If you want to imagine that PP is 25 and jacking 25 shots a game, ther's always youtube.

Did anybody say anything about Paul Pierce jacking 25 shots?

The Lakers were 6th in the league in scoring, we were a putrid 18th. This team has had trouble scoring the basketball all season, how do you expect them to score now when our best player/scorer is playing 25-30 minutes?
