All of the sudden instead of the steady, heady, solid shooting greg steisma, why is doc rivers playing a bum like ryan hollins (athletic with suspect hands and no shot)?   does anyone know.  hollins, a cleveland reject, is KG's spot minute replacement.

but at least steimsa can hit a shot.  and steisma played in the big ten.  big guys from the big ten are hardly soft.  skinny pac ten ucla dudes who can jump really high and are cut from this year's  cleveland cavs are soft.  we agree on half of what you said.

You make a good point, but i can tell you that Doc isn't playing Steisma because he's an offensive threat ..he would clearly be a last option. It has to be a matter of the defensive end and feels Holland is more aggresive defensively....Steisma didn't even play last game. Holland played 15 min.

and boston needs another shooter when KG isn't on the floor!  maybe steisma's fascitis is bothering him.

my take on haslem is he's not the ole haslem.  he's 32 and played a lot of years at a rugged position.  so the answer is yes.  but i don't see miami getting past the pacers.

i agree. He works hard. at least he got a ring with mia. never know how much he got left in his tank.

i notice he's not hitting his reliable 15 foot jumpers in this series.  i did wonder, as well, however, why spoelstra was playing haslem less minutes.

i think hollins is getting more time in this series because philly is a very athletic team, and boston has a tendency to get stagnant.  hollin is a loose cannon, but anything but stagnant.  i heard doc say in an interview recently that they love his energy and no matter what when you put in hollins, SOMETHING is going to happen.  good or bad.  

that and i also don't know if greg is 100% healthy right now.
