    Wasn't he hurt last night? His back or something?
    Wasnt mentioned anywhere

    I think he was hit in the nose during the second qtr though causing him to leave before halftime. He played later on so shouldnt be an excuse.

    Because Rondo is out for the year and KG and PP are old and they need to win now. I think Boston would very much consider this or similar deals .. they are obviously getting less "value" .. but they are trading damaged goods .. so that comes with the territory

    If Lowry has been broken then he is a head case. The same head case that lost his starting job in Houston, the same headcase that had issues with Mchale. He unnecessarily gambles outside of the defensive system. When he plays his style offensively it is like a very small bull in a china shop. It is reckless and there is no wonder why he is injury prone if you end up on your back or face every drive to the bucket. Perhaps his change in style isnt so much trying to be like Jose, but the realization that his career has only a few years left if he keeps playing that style.

    I was not in favor of trading for him. I would have finally given Jose the keys to the car for the first time in years rather than continuously spending time and energy trying to replace him and worked on other positions that we were in far more dire need of. If all of these TJ Ford/Lowry trades had been for other positions we would have been in a better spot now instead of trying to replace a guy who is in the top 10 for his position in multiple categories pertaining to point guards. The real issue with how the fan base reacts to Jose is his contract. It has always been that fan red herring that people have to mention. Yet over the term of that contract has it ever prevented us from signing anyone? Nope.

    So you're saying Boston would rather trade (arguably) the best point guard in the league for two players on our team that nobody wants?

    Why doesn't Boston just wait it out for another season? Rondo's still young. KG and PP are past their prime and the sacrifice of losing them would hurt much less than trading away a star like Rondo. Come on man.. this is crazy talk.. you couldn't even trade Bargnani right now for a second rounder.

    I like lowry too, I thought it would be a great move for us. So far it hasnt panned out. Lowry has terrible body language though. Did you
