did anyone notice what TJ was chewing tonight? at times it looked like gum, but at other times it was sticking out of his mouth and looked like a straw. really weird regardless.

so far, i would say yes. heck, their stats are even similar. 19 points and 3.5 rebounds per game for Mitch in his first year is WAS. 18 points and 4 rebounds per game for Allen.
Honestly, I think just keeping Delonte West as a shooter with healthy Allen would have been better and I agree Allen compares to Richmond.

The catch is without Allen, Ainge wouldn't have acquired Garnett. Garnett was worth that pick and everything else.

No Ray, no 30 win Celtics.

I enjoy debating sports, not fussing at others who might have a different opinion. RealGM is for FUN.

He has a habit of chewing on straws. I think the Bog show did a piece on Butler and his obsession of chewing on straws a while back.

Caron Butler chews on mcdonalds straws during the games.

I find it somewhat funny to see him promoting the mcdonalds brand behind the straws while being a shareholder of Burger King :p

But, could you imagine if they didn't trade for Allen, they'd have a better bench and a bigger window for a championship.

They could have West, Wally, and with the draft pick, Green, Yi, or a big man like Noah or Hawes or trade down and get a point guard like Law.

Not having a backup center or point guard may hurt them.

No Allen would have probably meant no Garnett so I don't think you can fault them for that. Maybe they could have held out on the Allen deal so they could keep Delonte West but I don't think he would have helped them a whole lot more than Eddie House has.

if they hadn't traded for Allen, i think they would've gone with Yi. let's see how that looks:


Yi/Perkins
Garnett/Scalabrene
Szcerbiak/Posey
Pierce/Allen
West/Rondo

you have an upgrade at C. A downgrade at the 2 or 3. an upgrade at PG with West and Rondo as the backup. and a whole lot more depth.

worse? better?

i personally think they'd be better off w/o allen. depth can go a long ways in this league. we certainly showed that tonight. the season isn't even half way done yet. they will eventually see the effects of lack of depth.

just back from the game and I see I have a few pages of reading
to do. I'm wondering how many visits we had from the green guys...

but first....

playoff game atmosphere, I have not heard the phone booth rockin
like that since Juan Dixon dropped 35 on CHI which was the last
playoff win I saw.

gutty, scrappy, win. Nobody will probably have a very pretty line
in the box score but what a win. All our vets played with real
determination. I was trying to get on the radio after the game
to say that in addition to the vets playing tough hard nosed ball,
I think I can see dividends already from the locker room re-arrangements.
The young guys were more focused and played a lot better which
really bodes well for this team not just for this season, but for years
to come.

What an explosion when AD hit the 3 to put us in front! Awesome.

now I gotta go back and read what people are talkin about...

seemed like the right call to me but I had a bad angle on it

no intent to hurt but it sure looked like the got their
feet tangled a bit. I'll watch the TV later. Can't blame the
ref too much if he did get fooled on the play.

the Cs were playing smothering D and really frustrating us, no
question.

Caron just got more determined.

WoW, you are SOOOOOOO much better without GILBERT.
That was a questionable call in the end of the game with the 24 second violation, but you won. Winning by 7 is better than losing by 20.
I'll see ya on Monday.

they got a few good cheers on their highlights but nothing like
the noise going down when AD hit his (3) shot or when DS stole
the ball and brokeaway at the end. It was bedlam.

I said earlier it was like the CHI series. There is one other
game I would compare it to as well. UT here last year on
MLK day when Gil dropped 50 on them incl the game winner.

Wizards 2008: 19-16
Wizards 2007: 20-15

And the talent on the bench and is SOOOOOOOO much better this season than last year. But all the haters have to come out and act like their hatred for Gil is justified.

my one and only complaint on the game

the only way Eddie House hurts us is if we leave him open.

So that's what we did.

still we held them under 80!

again, have not watch the replay yet but it seemed to me the ball
grazed the rim on the shot, a close call that they could easily miss.

but Rivers should have gotten T'd up for that.

Nope. It's all because Gil was just keeping him down.
