The Bulls play uninspired basketball. Yawn.
What are your impressions of the Celtics after seeing them in person?

My tears are not b/c you are mean, but because you are correct.

It's sad because Nocioni is our best player, and he is the one that comes up in all the trade talks...

Well, I don't think that I saw them on a typical night. Rondo had a hot hand, and Garnett barely asserted himself on offense. Still, they looked pretty good. I think KG was in Deng's head or face all night, and so Deng had a bad shooting night. They forced Gordon into some bad shots as well, and as usual, Ben just kept on shooting regardless. Allen looked a step slower than I recall, but his jump shots are still one of the prettier things in the NBA. I think he hit 4 Threes on the night. Pierce's shot would not go down, but he passed the ball well and had some boards tool. KG had a quiet 16/9 night, but with 7 blocks. Big Baby threw his body around a lot and pulled down a lot of boards in a short period of time, and Posey played ok off the bench as well...

That's a long winded way of saying that I was not blown away, but, was slightly impressed. We were talking before the game, and we were most interested in seeing Rondo, because we feel that if the Celts want to get by the Pistons, Rondo is going to have to step his game up. If he plays like he did last night, well, not a lot more you can ask for.

What is the deal with the Bulls fans booing Posey? Did he get into anything with them when he was with Miami? They booed whenever he touched the ball.

Oh and I had one of those "remember him?" moments last night. As in, "Hey there's Joe Smith, remember him?"

Didn't Posey, when with the Heat, clock Hinrich in the playoffs? Something like that.....they did boo him a lot, we noticed that too.

You touched on what to me has been most impressive about the Celts to date, their defense. They are doing a remarkable defensive job, so on nights when the offense doesn't click they still have a legit shot to win, and when the offense clicks, they blow people out.

as for the celtics... here are the two issues (and only two issues) i have with them.

#1, despite the fact that their bench has been playing better than expected, come playoff time they don't really have any other scorers besides the above average sized three, so if one (or more) of those guys gets injured, they're in deep shit.

#2, paul pierce could very well shoot them out of a playoff series.

December 10, 2007 -- Malik Rose has asked Isiah Thomas to keep him on the inactive list while requesting the club look to deal him if playing him is not in its plans.

Thomas is using the Knicks' open active roster spot to showcase rookie Wilson Chandler, who played the fourth quarter Saturday. Chandler's contract is eligible to be traded on Dec. 15 - the date the contracts of all first-round picks and free-agent signees can be moved.

Rose was inactive for the first time Saturday, with Chandler dressing and playing just over two minutes in the 105-77 loss to the Sixers. Rose said Thomas thought it was a good idea that he sit because he'd like to have Chandler active as well.

Rose believes he can better stay in shape by being inactive rather than sitting on the bench, waiting to get a call if there's foul trouble. If Rose knows he's inactive, he can do his full complement of weightlifting and workouts as he tries to stay in shape in case he is traded or there's an injury.

“It's hard on game days to work out," Rose said. “I told (Thomas) if he's not going to play me, put me on the injured list and I could get more work done on game day. I just want to play. Be it here or anywhere."

Rose would not specifically say if he demanded a trade, but he's been visibly emotional after losses.

The Post's Peter Vecsey reported Rose was offered to the Cavaliers in a sign-and-trade proposal for recently-signed Anderson Varejao.

i like malik rose

I was at that game wondering the exact same thing, but also I remember last year during the regular season when the bulls were beating Miami and like 45 seconds left Posey went on the line and everyone kept on screaming posey sucks...

But...it was indeed Posey body checking Heinrich that caused all the boo's.

He has also been in two other controversial plays against the Bulls that have pissed we Bulls fans off. The first was Heinrich getting shoulder checked on a break.

The next was Tyrus Thomas getting elbowed in the nose, actually breaking it.

And then there was the hard foul Posey did on Deng mid air that caused him to land on his wrist...the same wrist he had surgery on the year before.

He has a history vs the Bulls.
