Where did that yeah I didn't sense that we -- -- here clueless. Well for us what we -- and yet so I think we're more concerned. -- didn't say you know. At the start of the year so. -- I think now you -- our guys you know we understand and all the injuries or have just been tough but we just felt like we can get through this and get bodies that will be okay. And -- -- there. Well I don't worry about the trade deadline is coming and I'm gonna. Do about it you know so I don't worry about that I think our guys don't worry about it a lot you know. The only get asked about it you know 1523. Down today well so that's that. But I don't think about losing that much I don't know if you're human -- you a little bit. But. -- did a lot of the guys have been through it. And forced as a coach somewhere towards a Friday that it -- -- hit it yet. Yeah. As far as I'm just gonna play him and I'll keep an -- owner would have run a bug me. Other than Matt the I mean he's not doing great but -- will have no option right now. And I just the one thing I went in total as the difference disturbed wherever you just can't blame than you have to tell us. Other than that -- -- We don't have another body men. I don't think so you know we just work with the lineup when we had a good logo. The first time Boston is playing it -- is this -- and I challenges do they present. A pretty good knowledge that a lot of players. Chris Paul other letters in the nursery. That is also strangers. Nomar is first on the we seen him this year. That's unusual -- most of our trip is larger and little. So all those things are challenges are stressing. When your quarterback dependent. Yeah. There is not yeah -- you're you know he's gonna do it tests I think tomorrow the next day. I'll know he's. Going that I think I'm assuming the Cleveland clinic and that's where brother goes for everything. And you know us. Now we just don't know obviously. It's not a good situation. We know that but we're just hoping for the best. I was Doc Rivers you look at points allowed and points scored you come Bynum. This is the US since 20042005. Memphis in 06180. Point six the Celtics. Right -- care of 180 point eight happily struggling. Offensively -- you can't wait now joined in. Doc has been saying all along the same things that we've been here and in every city we go to from the coaches they're just trying to stay afloat -- -- healthy to get through that. The tough part of the -- we'll look at the great coach and we all know that he's doing exactly what he needs to do and that's keeping the Celtics alive you know less about the regular season. More about getting into the playoffs healthy they've got three hall of the guys and Garnett. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen but their older team they're an older team so they play very slow they take care of the ball they're very Smart don't take a lot of bad shots. This has become a very good team. By way of coaching style. -- you've been a general manager you've been a player in the league. It's how hard it is to maintain -- being -- -- the team the Celtics are trying to do it right now well it's a game of cycles really you have to understand rear you -- in the recycle you know lots of times you get your championship team. But our mutual look at the Dallas Mavericks they decided just consciously they'd look. We're gonna be to -- -- he's gonna be too old we're not gonna get to a championship level sort of the plan for the future still trying mean team being good. Now the Celtics are classic example when they had McHale parish and bird. Big waited too long and they were not great for a longtime. Very Dicey when you decide hey listen we're not championship caliber we got to make a change how have the San Antonio Spurs been able to do. I love the way San Antonio Spurs have done it. They've gotten younger right before our eyes to me. -- it all starts with Tim Duncan he flicked a great player you know he's always there always. -- he doesn't exactly what Popovich. You know wanted to do anything it rejuvenated himself second think they've done. They've gone out there on European players manager know -- tremendous example. Splitter you know Parker and then. They've got young players gave the Green right there. The cut where you know -- got all these guys now and they're a young team they've only got. -- players that are over thirty at this point workers. You know -- so they've done a tremendous covered rejuvenate themselves break for the all right and it seems to be that they always go after a certain type of guy high character guys that. Great locker room guys you know that's such a great point because. These guys or the the best in the league right now of knowing their system and knowing what type of players to surround their stores with the noticed them consider starting note you know when they know Parker. Let's get guys to surround him compliment of Popovich tremendous we had Mike Gorman play by play guy for the Boston Celtics and don't ask them what you think Boston's gonna -- at -- didn't do anything. What do you think Danny Ainge should you working and my recommendation don't trade Rondo I mean you've got a top five point guard if you don't rebuild your team. Trading away a top five point guard to me obviously they've got they mentioned before they've got three hall of fame guys they're getting older perhaps you -- moves one of those guys. But I don't think anything really happens I think they give it one more run if they can make a minor adjustment. Get somebody in there they listen they're still pretty good team I agree with you keep Rondo because I don't confront.
