This is a series of posts which highlight each key player in the Celtics’ run towards banner 18. It will highlight the areas of their game they need to improve most for the Celtics to be able to compete with the talent-blitzed teams of 2012-13. The area will sometimes be a player’s biggest flaw, or sometimes his biggest strength, but each post will highlight what this Celtics team needs players to change this season for the Celtics to have success.Most of us remember painfully watching the last games of the Eastern Conference Finals, yelling at the television for the Celtics to take advantage of the Miami Heat’s small-ball lineup with Shane Battier covering Brandon Bass at power forward. On paper it should have been a match-up dominated by Bass dominates, who had a solid 25-pound advantage and considerably broader shoulders. In reality Battier shut down BB on the defensive end, limiting Bass’ patented pick and pop game with overactive feet and hands cutting down passing lanes....

It will be interesting to hear what the hold us was for this. I've never heard of a contract taking this long to get finalized. The most recent report we had on Green's contract was that it was a four-year deal for $36 million, which is most definitely overpaying...
I loved the pick up of Jason Terry. Ever since I started watching him play I've nicknamed him "Dagger Three" because all he does is hit those threes that just crush the hearts of opponents. I also love him because of his enthusiasm, confidence, and loyalty to any team he plays for. The guy has already gotten a leprechaun tattoo on his forearm. Respect.
