LA was lucky Perk got hurt. LA never would have dominated the boards like that in the seventh game if Perk was in there. Not an excuse. LA won fair & square. But you're the one who brought up luck.

I think they need to trade Rasheed Wallace, and Garnett for Demarcus Cousins, and try to get maybe Terrance Williams of the Nets.

I was very proud of the team to make it to the NBA finals. Next year I know there must be some moves. The biggest I think will be Ray, with his salary I belive with a couple free angents from some bench players the team could sign one of the top free angents.The 19th pick in the draft could bring a nice bench player to go along with players like Baby and tony.

Yes it is an excuse and if the Lakers had Bynum at full strength it would have , most likely, evened things out.

Perkins has to go. He can't elevate, run the court and average only 6 pts and 6 boards per game. Allen has lost his touch. He failed us when we needed him the most. Paul and Big Ticket will still be there. They need to find a center and a couple great perimeter shooters, at least one with a good jumper.

It's tough to lose, but even tougher when you lose to the fruits and nuts of L.A.

Totally disagree with you on Perk. When he's in there no center dominates him. He's not the best center in the NBA, but he can play with the best and at that position that's just as good. He and Rondo are the future.

Father time has caught up with the Big 3. They've got maybe one or two decent years left in them, but they're all clearly over the hill. Ainge has got to start to find younger talent to replace them. I don't know if Tony or Baby or Nate are keepers, but after that, the bench is clearly expendable.

Rivers is out as the celtics coach and sources are reporting that the mastermind Danny Ainge is highly considering retiring. If you thought the celtics were "old" now wait till next season. Pierce will stay becuase he has an option for 20+ million next season. Ray will most likely be back as the C's are the only team willing to spend $$$ on an aging vet. I've been saying for over a year that the operation KG had has cost him a complete step in his game and Gasol made that obvious. Rondo needs to consistantly nail the mid-range jumper, when kobe would guard him in the pick and roll he would slip under the screen and not let the switch happen, forcing rondo to shoot that J or keep the ball and look for option 2 which played right into LA's hands. Boston really needs a soild big behind perkins, baby is an undersized C and weak PF at best. Perkins himself is a great role player for boston and thats it. Perk is out there for his defense and rebounding and a hurt bynum made him look silly. If i'm boston i'd start shopping for a solid big and a solid back up pg, nate you just dont cut it, imange if eddie house was there this playoffs, i guarntee rondo wouldn't have been as gased as he was and house is more than capeable of making shots when it counts and he can put up 20-30 any given night off the bench. Alot of holes to fill.
