As long as the Celtics keep winning the question is always going to be raised: is the glass half full or half empty when it comes to them winning? There has been a slow undermining of Rajon Rondo's importance to this team and their success without him.
It started with Courtney Lee who has since retracted those rumors about his unhappiness. Jason Terry, who came to this team admitting he didn't like to practice and saying that this Rondo-less offense suits him better.
Brandon Bass all of a sudden is a happier camper because his touches have increased.
All this grousing, must make us take into account, that the new additions had never had to work as hard in practice or during a game as they have had too in Boston. The only other team that I have heard off whom may have more physical and intense practices are the Miami Heat. Eric Spoelstra's team wears knee pads and elbow pads when they practice, hence their physicality even though they are a smallish team.
All of this griping...
