    Sad thing, but good for Raps.

    Wow.

    Remember all the pre-draft talk coming from Sullinger's camp saying that there are no back problems to worry about?

    They still have Pierce and KG. They'll be in the playoffs.

    I think this one hurts a lot though. KG can no longer command big minutes and for the most part is limited to 30mpg. Bass has struggled and really isn't very good. Sully was their one bright spot for relief for KG. Play KG more and risk his body giving out. Huge blow. I'm not sure if celts can do it anymore.

    And the irony about the last part of what you said is, that it's basically a given.

    Philly without Bynum will be a problem. They aren't a good team anyways despite having Holiday. We're about the same team without Gay, but with Rudy Gay, who knows...

    We can make a run for the playoffs. If we had those 4 games those fucking Zebra's cost us, we'd be in the playoffs no problem. Right now its going to be a hard fight for that last spot

    We're 7 games behind the Celtics right now, and that's going to be the number we should really care about right now. 35 games left, with Rudy Gay, and home games, we should try and take advantage.

    For a team built with vets and hopes of another shot at a ring, playoffs don't mean anything. Realistically they'd be lucky to win a quarter against a team like Miami in the playoffs without Rondo. They have no incentive to keep this team together other than nostalgia. Ainge is also one gigantic asshole as a GM. He will make a trade with no emotional consideration. An 8th seed isn't good enough for Boston, who were talking about beating NY for the division before the season started.

    Still though, I can't help but want to miss the playoffs even MORE now that we got Gay. Lose that draft pick right this season. With Gay here, we don't need an immediate talent upgrade and finding one would've been hard this draft. Now we can use Bargs, AA and whatever money (exceptions) we have in the summer to try and fill holes, and if we have a draft pick next year in a possibly strong draft, even outside the lottery, we might be able to get a solid PG or big drafting just for need.

    If Ainge blows it up. We have a good chance to make it this year, it would be a race between Philly, Toronto, and maybe Detroit
