Unfortunately, two things make him a bad fit: 1) His contract and its huge luxury tax implications for next season.Â Brian Robb already covered that; 2) Heâ€™s good at things the Celtics are already good at (three-pointers) and bad at one thing they are already struggling with (offensive rebounding). His skill set is somewhat duplicative in that way.
Z-Lo talks about Andres Nocioni and uses the word “average” 11 times in one article. That’s a lot of average.
At what point do the Celtics realize that the world does not end in 2011 (nor in 2012 despite what John Cusack may tell you)? I mean, you’re talking about setting up your newly-extended point guard with Eddie House and Andres Nocioni as his weapons post-Big-3.Â Noc’s fine, but didn’t deserve the contract he got from Chicago, and is only going to be, well, average.
Simmer down, C’s!
