What's the problem?

KG Rebound

Did you know the Celtics are 1st in the NBA in assists and 3rd in the NBA in points allowed. Did you know that KG is having his best PER year since 2008, the year the big three won the championship. Did you know NONE of the big three have been injured for more than 6 games….yet,

The Boston Celtics are 26-22 and are 2nd in their division to the 76ers (Who we lost to twice, by double digits this year). The Celtics, since the big three era have never been anywhere close to 26-22. They are usually one of the top three teams in the east. Granted it’s a shortened season, but I mean come on Celts. We are a team that consists of a top 5 pg, 3 hall of famers, and solid role players.

So now that I have bashed the Celtics, I feel like I should give you guys a reason why the Celtics are doing so bad this year…

Did you know the Celtics are 26th in scoring in the NBA and 30th in rebounding. 30th in REBOUNDING…that means we are behind the BOBCATS in that category. Another reason for the record, like i said earlier, is that it is a shortened season. The last reason why I think we have the record we have is injuries. The Celtics have been riddled with injuries all season: Jeff Green, JO, Wilcox, Pietrus, Rondo and The Truth in the beginning of the year…BUT I still have faith in my celtics.  If we find some consistency on the offensive end and rebound the ball after playing defense, then I definitely think if we win our division we have a legit shot at making the finals

    We are last in rebounding because we are a jump shooting team. It is harder to reel in missed jumpers than it is missed layups. Just a simple basketball fact.

    Shaq, one of the best rebounders of our generation is a great example. He got all his boards from hardaway, Kobe, Nash, wade, lebron going to the hoop and missing layups. He wasn’t outside the paint grabbing jumpers.

    did u see the stats of today’s game? 51 paint points….we aren’t really a jumpshooting team either…if you look at our stats we don’t take many threes. The point is they have to rebound better, we cannot be number 30 in the league in rebounding Kyle
