I like Arenas, I just dont think that signing him for this much when no one else was offering him anything was a wise move because now they have all their money stuck with 2 players who havent gotten them, and may not get them past the first round. Jamison is a very good player but his defence is almost as bad as Boshs, same with Gilbert. The
guys around them, as solid as they are defensively, cant mask the pathetic defence of those 2 no matter what they do. I dont even think Tom thibodeau could save them.

They were better without Gilbert, yet they sign him forever even though they havent won anything with him. They probably could have gotten a decent package in a sign and trade and looked to go in a different direction I think too. Its bad management.
