Celtics Morning Joe: Perk thinks the C's will be alright

Kendrick Perkins would be right to think he got out of town just in time, before Rome crumbled and turned to ruin.

But Oklahoma City’s center has too much compassion for his former team to talk that way. When Perkins thinks of the Celtics [team stats], he thinks of what can still be possible, not the sub-.500 record (15-17) they carry into the All-Star break for the first time since that infamous 24-win season in 2006-07.

“They’ll be all right,” said Perkins. “I don’t think they’re caring about where they place in the seeding. I think they’ll get in the playoffs and do what they’ve got to do. I know a few of them are waiting for the regular season to be over so they can get into the playoffs. They’ll make it.”


I don't think that's been the case this season. I think the Celtics tried to win all of those games.I think seeding doesn't matter for the Celtics. What's the big deal if the Celtics finish 8th, or 7th in the East.? They will have to go through Miami, and Chicago anyway. Everyone seems to think that the Celtics will be fine. Is that a trap for the Celtics to believe?

Ainge is ruthless at times, Celtics have the best record in the league last year and he trades Perkins for another dead-man walking. He alienates all his players by treating them like meat and calling them old. So if Danny thinks their fine, he's got to let the cards ride.

I'm sick of this flip crap,or waiting for playoffs stuff, but it doesn't mean I don't believe, but I say the Celtics jump to number 6 in the east when it's all said, and done.

Perkins made some nice common sense comments about the Celtics. He has got to be one of the most underrated players in the NBA. People are so spellbound by scoring. They underrate Russell, Cowens, Rodman, Perkins, Rondo, and now Bradley, because they cannot see what Russell said: 99% of the game is NOT SCORING!!!

I'm with you on that, Allen. This stuff about waiting for the playoffs is such nonsense. If Rondo hadn't broken out in the 2010 playoffs, we would have been eliminated early. It was an unusual situation. It wasn't a recipe.
