Re: Hold on to Blount...
This list spends more time bitching about lack of playing time for Hunter
than catching growth of other players, like Blount who I have been
mentioning for a long time now. Like Davis, who like Blount are worth
keeping. If Hunter were producing he'd be starting and *staying* in the
lineup. Seems he is the one who is the fluke unless we can find other 6'6"
PF's for him to play against. Carrolls's starting and pulling him almost
immediately isn't the way to build confidence in anyone. I have never seen
this happen in basketball.
The Celts are going to have a harder time getting Pierce straightened out
than weaning the newbies off the nipple. He obviously has an ego problem.
6-24. 4to's. Just 3 boards.
