At first I thought the Celtics were being sneaky by not playing Shaq, ready to unleash him at full strengh for the playoffs. Now I’m not so sure. Not seeing him for the final few games makes me think he’s not going to be ready for round 1 vs. the Knicks. This is excellent news since we have one of the smallest teams around. It looks like we’ll only have to deal with Krstic and Jermaine O’Neal’s corpse, and maybe some Big Baby at the center position. If Shaq comes back that throws a wrench into things a little bit. We’d be severely undersized.
If only we had some bigger bodies on the team….If only there were some 7 footers out there for real cheap. Someone that could give Amare a rest for ten minutes a game. Someone like Darko Milicic, Anthony Randolph, Earl Barron, Jordan Hill….how do these other teams keep finding cheap big men? Beats me.
