How many times are you going to think? Find out and stop pondering. Research it. Rando played 78 games and started 25 games behind Delonte West, a pretty good PG.

He could be a bust this season or explode for a break out season. We're not sure yet. We are sure that Rando is a young fast athletic PG with an all around game, that is going to play with 3 guys who will just make the game much easier for him.
He had actually ran the Boston Celtics many of times. Don't come to this thread thinking Rando has no experience, he got experience under his belt last season. NBA sophomores always produce and progress unless your name is Channing Frye. Expect guys like Balkman, Rando, Aldridge and Rudy Gay to have break out seasons, they got the first year under their belt. From what I researched about rookies-sophmore transistion its normally a huge leap and progression between the first and second year. I can understand why Rando is underrated by some people. We'll have to see this season.
Again, you think. But what I want to know what you know bro. I can understand Celtics not being the best in the East, thats a valid statement.
You're 100% right about Detroit, I forgot about their two rookie guards. Lets see how they deliver this season.
I don't know about the refs scandal. What I know superstars in the NBA get favored, and it happens in all sports. Allen, Pierce and Garnett are elite top 10-15 players. Having them on the same team can only equal success.
As for the Celtics, I wish Knicks get Artest so we could give it to them this season. We match up with them well cause of our deep bench. We just to improve with Artest and get rid of Crawford. We'll be set for 07-08.
sorry some old replies
True!!! haha, zach on IR for the herp outbreak!!!

NJ??? maybe, they are old, they'll be scrapping it out, toronto, lots of young talent, orlando,the same, they'll be fighting. Boston, i think, they'll have tough start, but will bringit together after first month, finish with a playoff spot secured.

He's an all-star, jamaal should be a bench player. With only taking 267 shots more than jamaal last year, both hurt didn't play full season, he avged 26.4 points compared to 17.6 thats 9points a game more. Crawford isn't on the level.

Allen can run off screens, cuts/slashes and spots up, kg posts and is quick, not to mention his D, Peirce, the only guy on the team, who needs to dominate ball to be successfull and that is only one player needing to adjust and he's had to share before with antoine walker and boston used to make playoffs with that combo originally.

I will stand by what I said. Allen is a better shooter than Jamal at this point. That's it. He can't handle like Jamal, or explode like he used to on them ankles. he does not create for his teammates like Jamal either. So this half the player stuff is all in your head. I call it how I see them play. He is still a better player to have, but he it is no longer head and shoulders above Jamal. And Jamal was never the Knicks #1 option. That being said, Steph is the best guard on either team. So Boston still loses imo.
Allen > Jamal.
Steph >>> Both.
Boston looks intimidating with the GAP band, but I think the Knicks can still beat them. If Chris Webber got the idea to join the Celtics, then I'd be a bit more concerned. Thankfully, I haven't heard anything on that.
How would you feel if Chris Webber joined the Celtics?
Webber is done. He has a pretty decent jumper but that's it. Anyone can out hustle him, run, jump...see the picture I'm trying to paint lol. He needs to retire or work on those needs because he runs like has a wedgie and shoots the rock as if he has rubber bands attached to his waist and he can't get any lift. Boston can have webber...it'll slow them down that much more.
i think it wouldnt be a bad fit if he can accept being the 3rd or 4th option. he can still pass and facilitate the offense, which would help out rondo. the only problem is if they play him and kg they dont really have a banger starting, but they have them off the bench. that team would remind me way too much of the lakers with kobe shaq malone and payton.
great post peter... chris webber now at this point in his carrer is like karl malone when he was with the lakers... i agree with the1andonly, he's pretty much done...
What makes Curry a real center but not Okafor? Would you still have Curry over Emeka?
