Default Boston Celtics - Rebounding Center?

The Boston Celtics are/were/have been a rebounding center away from being champion's the last few years. They have gone DEEP into the playoffs numerous times since the formation of this big three, winning, loosing garnett, loosing to the lakers in the finals etc etc. Being one of the last in the league in rebounding numerous times also, so why havent they gotten a rebounding center by now?

They have the pieces, they've had the money, I just don't understand why?

KG back at PF? There's just so many reason's for them to even dig into the luxury tax and get a FA center for the chance at a title? Don't they owe it to paul and KG to go into the luxury tax for one year, sign a big for 5 years when PP and KG are expiring contracts?

what hurt the Celtics is their offense is built around the least effective shot, and when you have mileage on your legs it is quite easy to drift and fall in love with the long 2. The Celtics defended at an elite lever over the last 5 years but had way to many offensive lulls due to how their offense is constructed. They did not score in the paint or draw fouls at a high rate which the leagues top offenses are now built on. Nor were they as potent of a 3 point team as their championship team iirc. Even this season i think the Celtics could win a title if they could get 1 guy to draw fouls at an elite rate, score in the paint, or shoot the 3 at an elite rate, because they still can stop the opposing offense especilly with KG on the floor.

Boston Celtics - Break it up and rebuild.

They could have made a run with Rondo but it don't make sense anymore. Ainge a couple years ago went in on Auerbach for not trading aging stars, he's making the same mistake. Especially when PP has expressed being open to a move and KG has huge value.

I'm still mad at Ainge for placing his trust in a center rotation of Shaq and Jermaine O'Neal. Even though the Celtics were by far the best team in the league when Shaq was healthy early in the season.

You trying to be a 'troll' something? how can you look at the celtics this year and say blow it up? What they have become this year is just proof of how good they are and have been. Just a few rebounds, and a david stern less league away from 5 straight titles.

I actually like the Celtics...and I think they were unlucky not to get to the finals last year but without Rondo they ain't winning a championship. At 35 and 36 respectively.

Garnett is still worth something to some teams, even if he retires at the end of the season and Pierce is worth something as well. To get back pieces for them right now would be a huge + when it comes time to actually rebuild.

They are just a rebounding center away from a championship....if the league lets him on the court with the other 5 guys.

offensive woes are bigger weaknesses than rebounding. If they were built like a traditional 2000 offense than i think multiple championships would have been the result.

I disagree, they've had one of the best offenses statistically for the last 5 years. They're way up there in assists and fg%.

They've been one of the worst rebounding teams in the league for the past 5 years. It's not that hard to get a guy who wants to rebound. They could've thrown an offer at Reggie Evans or anyone that wants to get rebounds. You can't win without rebounding.

Default Re: Boston Celtics - Rebounding Center?

It's not that complicated. Sign a center who rebounds and defends from the post and have Rivers pay attention on offense and not make it about Rondo passing for a potential assist on long jumpshots.


If that's too hard to find and too hard for Rivers to do...then, as much as I don't like the idea...the fact is that the team is doing well without Rondo and I don't know if Ainge thinks anything of it. If he does, Lee and Rondo for Horford and Teague...you plug them right in and you an ideal team.
