That lead evaporated faster than a cool mist during a hot July in Scottsdale.

Nice recovery by JJ. At least he doesn't completely give up on the play after giving up an offensive rebound.

Johnson has some tools, but whenever he plays, the Celtic defense falls apart. The game is moving too fast for him right now.

It really does suck that the Celtics could be completely awful for the rest of the season and still pick up an 8 seed.

Are the Celtics the worst defensive rebounding team in the NBA? I mean how hard is it to put a body on a guy?

This is depressing. Eventhough i knew the downfall was coming, it doesn't make it any easier. This franchise is fucked for a while and it is going to be a very tough road back. Nature of the NBA.

This sucks.

They are statistically the worst rebounding team in the NBA. Defensive, offensive, any way you want to slice it.

There's only so much you can do when you start every offseason already over the cap.

Just took a look at the schedule. It's going to be hilarious a month from now:
3/11 @ LAL
3/12 @ LAC
3/14 @ GS
3/16 @ SAC
3/17 @ DEN
3/19 @ ATL
3/22 @ MIL
3/23 @ PHI

Can't see them taking more than 2 or 3, if that.

Garnett is thinner than he used to be, and he never spent much time blocking out even in his prime. He just jumped over everybody and got the ball. He can't do that anymore.

O'Neal doesn't have the springs to jump any more nor the heft to block out. They just move around and over him.

Johnson is a second behind. Wilcox just isn't very good. Bass is injured.

Rondo is probably the team's only above-average rebounder.

No. They re middle of the road defensive rebounders. They re dead last offensive rebounding.

Two points though: OTOH, offensive rebounding is how you appraise true rebounding ability. OTOH, I remember one of the commentators saying last year that the Celtics don't put as much effort on offensive rebounding in order to have quick returns on D.

The problem is much more that the Bulls are the best offensive rebounding team though.

I think Noah just set a record for number of times picking up your pivot foot without being called for a travel.

Like I said. 21s in Defensive rebounding and it's actually worse than last time I checked it, probably because there isn't much difference in the middle of the pack.

Didn't see this one but he brings a very awkward dynamic that wasn't there before. Could just be comfort - Ernie, Kenny, and Charles are extremely comfortable with each other and know they can say anything at any time. With Shaq it seems like they're still in the stage of worrying about him saying something he shouldn't on air and//or putting a contract on their heads.

That's one of the last skills to wane for an aging ballplayer.

Can we pick him up with a second-round adoption? Because the Celtics could use a long floppy guy whose bones don't creak when he moves.
