Post-game Reactions

Here’s the latest on Bradley from the team via Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston.com, on the reported surgery.

Celtics guard Avery Bradley underwent surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday at New England Baptist Hospital, the second of two procedures aimed at getting him back to full health next season.

Bradley originally had left-shoulder surgery in May, ending his season during the Celtics’ playoff run. With that sufficiently healed, he underwent a stabilization procedure on his right side on Tuesday with team physician Dr. Brian McKeon.

The team did not announce a timetable for his return to action.

    Hope he has a speedy recovery. We need him ASAP.

    In other news, Heat sign Rashard Lewis. C's and Heat are both stacking up! Man… Heat vs Celtics in ECF.

    Get well soon, Honey Badger! (I hope that football dude doesn't mind a little nickname borrowing. He shouldn't. AB is the epitome of honey badgerness. At least on the basketball court.)

    S/O to Sully…

    Sullinger is struggling so far against legit center, going 1-for-7 shooting, but he does have nine rebounds ?#celtics"

    I'll take those nine boards outta you any day. But no chucking.

    Free agency officially starts now.

    I am excited to see what the Cs can pull out of a hat this summer. Next season will be exciting. A healthy Bradley, plus Green, and plus Terry helps but I'm not sure it puts the Cs at the top of the east.
    The Cs got to the ECF with Horford out most of the first round. Avoided Chicago in the second round due to no Rose, and Bosh was out most of the Heat series.
    Atlanta may not have gotten any better but they will be a team the Cs arent used to.
    The Heat can start 1-Wade 2-Allen 3-James 4- Lewis and 5- Bosh. Scary.
    Brooklyn with out Howard will make the playoffs. With Howard Im not sure how the Cs compete with them.
    Chicago I think will do something to improve this summer. If not then Cs shouldn't worry too much with Rose out til mid season.
    The Knicks are a team that could be good if they can put it together. Adding Kidd certainly helps especially if Lin plays as good as he did last year they could be tough for the Cs as will.
    Bucks, Pacers, and 76ers will be in the playoff hunt but are not teams Cs need to worry about unless one of them make a huge splash this summer.

    Cs have a lot of question marks for next season. Will the old guys(Pierce, KG, and Terry) hold up? Will Green come back and be a 12-15 point scorer? Will Bradley recover quickly and stay healthy? How will the rooks games translate to the NBA? Has Bass hit his ceiling last season at 12pts 6 rbs in his 7th season? Can Moore and JJJ become rotation players?

    I thought the Cs could win in all least year. I said it in the 1st few weeks of the season when the Cs were playing poorly. It was a short season and it was any ones title to take. I felt they should have beat the Heat and could have beat OKC. Next season will be a full season and Pierce and KG will need a lot of help. So what to do? Go get Lee which from what everyone is saying is in the works. I know everyone loves Bass but I say trade him to Utah for Millsap. Why? Well Millsap is a better rebounder and better scorer. Why does Utah do this trade? They get a guy locked up for 3 years for cheaper money. Bass 6.7 mil and Millsap 8 mil a year. Millsap and Big Al will both be free agents next summer. They wont sign both and Millsap wants 10+ a year. By having Millsap the Cs will have a decent player to put in a sign and trade for possibly Smith next summer.
    Starting 5 = 1-Rondo 2-Lee 3-Pierce 4- Millsap and 5- KG
    Bench 5 = 1-Terry 2- Bradley 3- Green 4- Sully and 5-Melo

    Another idea is Bass and Bradley to Philly for Iggy. Boston gets an athletic 2 to put next to Rondo. Philly gets a PF to replace Brand as well as a solid SG to come off the bench after losing Lou Williams. Philly wants to get more time for Tuner and getting rid of Iggy and his contract would help.
    1-Rondo 2-Iggy 3-Pierce 4-Sully 5-KG
    1-Terry 2-Lee 3- Green 4-JJJ 5-Melo

    Who knows what Ainge can or will do. I am just hoping he does something. If he gets Lee and just fills out the roster with min contract guys then thats fine with me. That scenario the Cs need to have everything go right for them with health, additions of Green and Terry, and the Rooks need to have an impact.

    Believe in 18!
