    Leon Powe is a beast and though he’s no replacement, brings enough to the table that we can get to the Finals without KG. I always thought Powe should be getting more minutes and here’s his chance to shine.

    Apparently KG has to have surgery after the season, so even though Doc said he’s “most likely” done for the postseason, you can pretty much guarantee the Celtics aren’t going to risk further injury by bringing him back. Either way, I don’t see them getting past the Magic in the second round, I’m just a realist.. neither Big Baby or Leon Powe can stop Dwight Howard… the guy’s a beast.

    The true impact of KG’s loss will be on the defensive end, particularly when the Cs run into bigger and better teams. A beast like Dwight Howard normally would have to face Perk and KG for 30+ mins a game, a combo that might wear him down over a long series. Now he gets to go against Perk and Big Baby for those 30+ mins. Not to mention energy stick figure Mikki Moore will now be forced into more playing time thus negating some of his effectiveness.

    If the Cs are going to win this thing they need Rondo, Ray, Tony, and Paul to bring better pressure D on the guards of other teams. Hopefully that will make it harder for teams to go inside and exploit the fact the #5 is not patrolling the paint.
