He chose the Celtics. As far as I'm concerned he doesn't deserve to wear the P&G.

They are chanting "We want Ray" to taunt the Celtics cause they have Ray Allen now.

It was Barbosa's choice to choose the Celtics over us...

That ain't on our front office ;) Barbosa chose the Celtics over us and even said he felt they(the Celtics) fit his style more.

In the end Barbosa chose the Celtics over us and said he even felt the Celtics fit his style more. Not on us if we were still talking to him and he chose the Celtics. That's on Barbosa tbh. If he felt the Celtics suited his style more(his own words) more power to him.

End of the day, both us and Boston pursued him, he chose Boston. So that was his choice.

No [expletive]. He's always been good. Career 40% 3PT shooter, career 46% shooter overall from the field, career 12 points per game off the bench and an array of ways to create his own shot.

That's not ignoring variables -_- Both us and Boston were in talks with Barbosa and at the end of the day he chose the Celtics. There is a reason Mitch was trying to trade away Duhon or Blake. That's a variable you're ignoring ;)

Thing is you're actually correct.

And it looks to me like barbosa is playing the 2 right now. :laughing:

Fact of the matter is, we had Meeks, so getting Barbosa was a long shot to begin with, but yet the Lakers kept contact with him and were trying to unload Duhon/Blake there's a reason for that.

But Barbosa signed with the Celtics rather than wait to see what happened there. We didn't give up our pursuit but he decided to join the celtics rather than wait on us. That's on him really, you can't blame him but at the end of the day no matter which way you slice it, he chose the Celtics while we were making moves that would have given him a viable spot on our team had they gone through.

Barbosa, 16 points in 14 minutes (6-6 FGs, 3-3 3PT). Looks like Doc Rivers really blew this one. Should've played him more.

No, actually its well documented Mitch was trying to trade Blake/Duhon or both during the pre-season. The talks of such things died down the moment Barbosa signed with the Celtics.

Gee.. I wonder why... :shifty:

I'll say what I said up there

Fact of the matter is, we had Meeks, so getting Barbosa was a long shot to begin with, but yet the Lakers kept contact with him and were trying to unload Duhon/Blake there's a reason for that.

But Barbosa signed with the Celtics rather than wait to see what happened there. We didn't give up our pursuit but he decided to join the celtics rather than wait on us.

fyi barbosa has been doing most of his damage from the 2, not the backup 1. Just food for thought.
