The bitter coffee kicked my mind,I shook and then I licked my lips and gave a sigh. I couldn't believe what I was reading. Creative I give him that, but my shattered eyes encouraged, I nearly had envisaged,waking up an eye.Another sip; a jolt –Not unlike a bolt. Of wattage from the mains.My sockets under strain after reviewing Bill Simmons story, something that wasn't mind blowing to me, it had it's creative moments, but it didn't do anything for me. I tried it once again. Aha! The light, the searing white. He's a bitter man, and upset like you, and me. He doesn't give the team hope, but as Bob Ryan pointed out, this team is on year five,of a three year plan. Rondo should be running this space ship, but he's still taking orders from the ships captain.
As a fan I try to find the courage I need. I need the courage to control my instincts on how I feel about the Celtics.The courage I need to face my fears on the end of this era, and I factor in the doubt that Ainge has on Rondo, and I fear that. I need the courage to see the future, and I want to look into a crystal ball, and see Rondo in a Celtics uniform.
I lean towards Bob Ryan more so than Simmons on most topics.But I think Ryan, doesn't count in the factor that Perk had chemistry with the Celtics. Of course he's right that Green has the better game, but for this team now, and for what they want to do, Perk is missing. Perk has awful stats, and his play in OKC has been turn your head away, and don't look over there kind of bad.But the team needs him, and even a player like him.
On not taking DeAndre Jordan in the draft: "There are a million of those stories."
So true, and sometimes it takes years to see what talent has worked out.I think for any person, in any job your held accountable. Does Danny do a bad job, no he doesn't, but he may have a problem?Some people are prone to addictions and addiction in some cases a crime. A crime for Celtic fans. Danny had a big boost in 2007 when he formed the big three. I always get the sense he wants to chase that high, and last year he made abother splash with the Perk deal. Let's move away from Ainge for a moment.
Simmons mad this statement in his screen play about Rondo.
"Now I play hard once a month, throw balls at referees and check out on Doc every time he tries to lean on me."
Really man? Rondo plays hard once a month? Over the top much? He didn't throw the ball, he tossed it.Very similar yes, but he didn't wind it up, or put a lot of effort in to it. Doc leans on Rondo? Hardly, Doc leans on the big three, and on Pierce. Rondo is used as the goat. I think if Simmons had any idea about the NBA anymore. He would have never of came up with his trade ideas. Those trades would set the Celtics back another decade. I'm sorry to the fans who Like Simmons. I just never got into what he does. He's got a vibe about him, and an ego that could blind me, and he claims he's a fan of the Celtics, but I don't see it in any writing he produces. I will give him one thing, he did come out, and put Ainge on notice, but I think the message was a miss for me. What do you think?
