    I hope they do it. Eddie House from three worries me much more than a 5'6'' chucker that doesn't shoot all that well.

    Dumb move for Boston.

    Nate, like many small and speedy PG's, tends to light up the Cavs when he plays them. But this move doesn't worry me in the least. He just doesn't strike me as a winner.

    Nate always plays us tough....so maybe that is why Ainge is interested. :chuckles:

    Plus, he's one of my least favorite NBA players, so it'll just add to the pile of shit that is over there (sans Rondo and Ray).

    They'll have to take that commercial down, because the last thing Nate does is play defense...

    I think every year Boston just makes a move to make a move (i.e. signing Sam Cassel, signing Garb-bury, and now Nate Roninson).

    I would be much more worried about Nate going to the Lakers. His offensive style fits in better there where he and Kobe would share the ball handling duties a lot like Mo and Bron do. It would make either one of them a scoring threat at any time. He would pass out of double teams, which is what they would be used to. In Boston, they rely on a more traditional pg to set up the plays and execute. If anything Nate would probably disrupt their unselfish style of pass first play. Hope he goes to Boston.

    Well, if Nate has the habit to burn Cavs with his play, I definitely would be worried about him. If he has that Rafer Alston thing going against us, it might be just the edge Celtics need to fuck us over in the playoffs.

    If he has that Rafer Alston thing going against you guys, he'll shoot 37% over 6 games and average 4 assists, but since it's Nate he'll also play 0 defense. Shouldn't you hope for that?

    Thinks it's a nice little move for Boston. But doesn't affect us really.

    Solid move, doesn't really concern me. But damn, that locker room is filled with douche bags.. KG, Sheed, Perk, Big Baby etc. and now Nate.

    Nate will get abused by this line up. Mo / Moon/ Jawad / LeBron / Andy.
