Shaq is all smiles because he will earn a few more million dollars for doing little odd jobs here and there. Doc looks grimly serious because Shaq has just executed a cannonball into Doc's swimming pool and now only half the water is left in the pool.

jordan u forgot one crucial point that i dont have to watch rasheed power-walk from 3 pt line to 3 pt line thus the regular season will be less depressing. i know what to expect from fat shaq and he is really fourth/fifth big man on the depth chart and at a min salary and somehow that's less depressing

for real though i think cs will be energized by the finals run and ready for vengeance. injuries were big last year too

clincher is that league pass also means i can watch okc all the time if all else fails

this i don't believe. i think o'neal is desperately concerned with going out on a super high note -- preferably by beating bryant in the finals. he could have signed for more money elsewhere. not that i think he's likely to put boston over-the-top at this stage of his career, but whatevs.

shaq to solidify celtics:

BOSTON — NBA analyst David Aldridge said Wednesday that with the addition of Shaquille O'Neal, the Celtics have vastly improved their chances of leading the league in three-second lane violations for the 2010–2011 season. "Not only does Shaq's presence in the paint give his team more opportunities to turn the ball over, but the Celtics have also added an experienced big man who makes an already old team significantly older," said Aldridge, adding that O'Neal should fill a key role in terms of drastically slowing down the Celtics' offense. "Danny Ainge was looking for someone with size who can't make it down to the other end of the court, and he went out and got the best in the business." Aldridge added that while O'Neal isn't the dominant force he once was, he believes Shaq still has a thing or two to teach teams who think it's a good idea to sign him.

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 14 August 2010 17:14 (ten years ago) link

He may not entirely solidify the C's, but he can add a lot of viscosity.

Aimless, Saturday, 14 August 2010 18:49 (ten years ago) link

hahahahaaha guys i just realized, shaq is really fat!

Ruffalo buffalo Ruffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Ruffalo buffalo (m bison), Saturday, 14 August 2010 22:22 (ten years ago) link

three weeks pass...

on paper and based on my faded memories of his great prime years, boston signing shaq sounds like a very good move. then, you read stuff like this:

SamAmicoNBA Shaq on Mo: "Guys who couldn't even play were worried about shots. Why was Mo (Williams) taking 15 shots, and I'm only taking four?"

if o'neal is complaining about his shots on a 66-win team featuring lebron james, i'm not convinced he'll all of a sudden be a good team player in boston. i imagine if he could work well anywhere, it would be there, given the quality character guys leading the team, but still . . .

minutes, game 7: tatum 44, kemba 44, smart 43, liberation brown (is there a better name in the history of bball?) 43. if hayward does nothing more than pull some of those numbers down, that could be huge.

obvs it would be good for the bench to be deeper but damn if they don't seem to weather those minutes well. so young!

drama

Celtics postseason notes -- General:

Have combined with their opponents to score just 106.1 points per 100 possessions, the second lowest combined mark in the playoffs.

Eight of their 11 games, most in the playoffs, have been within five points in the last five minutes.

6-2 after leading by double-digits. 2-1 after trailing by double-digits.

Have been the best second-quarter team (+20.0 points per 100 possessions) in the postseason.

lag∞n, Monday, 14 September 2020 19:50 (two weeks ago) link

i love brad stevens but can the celtics maybe sign a backup coach who would take over for 3rd quarters and give stevens a rest?

fact checking cuz, Friday, 18 September 2020 01:39 (one week ago) link

its a total flip from the IT era where they would be down at the half every game and then catch up in the 3rd

they tried really hard to lose there at the end, feel bad for em

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 21 September 2020 00:22 (one week ago) link

disagree w that. thought they played well when their backs were up against the wall in the last two minutes. fuckin love marcus smart even if he forgot to run the clock out :)

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 21 September 2020 07:38 (one week ago) link

With six minutes to go in the 4th, the Celtics are up 19 points. Over the next five minutes, the Heat go on a 21-5 run and the Celtics let the lead go to 5 in the last minute behind brown catching robinson in the face with an elbow for a flagrant. Marcus righted the ship at the end there but the Heat should never have gotten that close.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 21 September 2020 15:03 (one week ago) link

right, but it didn't feel to me like they were tanking or letting their foot off the gas - they were battling (imo)

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 21 September 2020 15:08 (one week ago) link

no, i's agree with that but i do remember some bad choices right at the end there... i'd have to look at the play-by-play again to clarify.
driving aggressively seemed to work; not sure if they caught miami off guard or if they've found the right tactic.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 21 September 2020 15:24 (one week ago) link

they were running clock which they maybe started a lil early but it was working, then the flagrant made it dicey (fwiw i feel like when a guy plays defense with his face it should maybe not be a flagrant), if they wanted to keep their foot on the gas it wouldve produced a ton more possessions down the stretch which obvs increases variance, you run clock to reduce that, either approach can go wrong tho theres no 100% win and its very easy to fault the strategy when it does, when really usually the problem is often the execution, or just the other team playing really well

lag∞n, Monday, 21 September 2020 15:40 (one week ago) link

i hated that flagrant call. you have to be able to rotate the ball from side to side over your head in a ready to pass position. it's literally one of the most basic basketball moves.

call all destroyer, Monday, 21 September 2020 16:00 (one week ago) link

yeah the ref even said it was unnecessary contact but like it was necessary, feel like the league couldve prepared a lot better for instituting replay, you get one challenge but also if you roll around on the floor and hold your face you get more challenges

lag∞n, Monday, 21 September 2020 16:11 (one week ago) link

they couldve just looked at how the nfl realized they had no idea what a catch actually was to see what a huge can of worms they were opening

lag∞n, Monday, 21 September 2020 16:12 (one week ago) link

hollinger has a piece today saying the celtics are getting worn down by playing big minutes in a compressed schedule and its hurting them at the end of games, which is reasonable, the article contains this graph

on the bright side they get a couple extra days off and gordon hayward is back

lag∞n, Monday, 21 September 2020 19:28 (one week ago) link

i mean, yeah, the celtics have definitely used their starters for a shit-ton of minutes, and it doesn't seem sustainable, but the "holy moly" line in that chart is a little disingenuous considering that the celts have played two more games than the heat and three more than the raptors.

fact checking cuz, Monday, 21 September 2020 19:40 (one week ago) link

that said, even with hayward in the lineup, three players logged more than 40 minutes in game 3 on saturday and they were all celtics. so, yeah, there's good reason to worry.

well the minutes are adding up regardless of how many games theyre spread across, occurs to me in some ways its prob worse that theyre over more games cause it means they havent had any rest

18 total minutes during the regular season!

lag∞n, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 17:14 (one week ago) link

which i mean a. its a very small lineup theres not even really a power forward in it much less a center b. they didnt have that many games with all their guys healthy c. in the regular season youre trying more to stagger minutes and not tire your guys out playing against bigger guys d. the lineup doesnt make sense against all teams

still weird they didnt run it more tho

lag∞n, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 17:17 (one week ago) link

i didn't catch this:

The Celtics have played 12 consecutive games in these playoffs without the home team winning any of them. The streak included the last two games of Boston’s first-round sweep of Philadelphia, every game of the Celtics’ seven-round epic with Toronto in the second round and the first three games of the Eastern Conference finals against Miami. Boston’s second-round matchup with Toronto was the first in more than 600 best-of-seven series in N.B.A. playoff history in which the home team failed to win a single game.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 22:29 (one week ago) link

sorry for the dim question but there is no 'home' team i thought?

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 22:33 (one week ago) link

Not in any conventional sense of 'home team', but the NBA designates a home team for each game in the bubble and does the 'virtual fan' section via webcams, and pipes in appropriate crowd noises, music, and scoreboard messages to simulate a home game. but it's bunk.
