We're too stacked on the wings for him, so it's not surprising that he latched on to a much better team since he'd obviously be stuck behind our brilliant wing play!

Barbosa will torch us this year.

That's a pretty small trio of off-guards.

all of them are 6'3'' or shorter iirc...maybe some of the larger SGs in the league will be able to knock 'em around *cough*DD*cough*.

Wishful thinking!

Bradley is a good defender so he can probably make up for his size, and JT makes up for his size by scoring. Lee is decent size and Barbosa I cant think of anything good for him.

Barbosa and Terry are going to help Boston avoid some of those ugly, ugly scoring droughts that they've been prone to, and let's face it, Allen was a shadow of his former self. Maybe Ray isn't done yet, and maybe he gets healthy in Miami, but what he was giving the last two years in Boston's playoff run wasn't anywhere close to what he had previously.

Weird signing tbh. I kind of wanted him on the Lakers because he can score, but he's not really a PG and I think that's what the Lakers need off the bench to give Nash a rest.

Rondo and Terry are obviously better than Barbosa, but so are Bradley and Lee IMO. That's why I don't understand this signing.

And yeah, these dudes are undersized but it won't matter. Boston is the second best team in the East and their biggest threat is obviously Miami. Wade is only 6' 4". Bradley can D him up even though he's smaller so that's not a problem. Terry being undersized wasn't a problem in 2011 Finals. Lee is 6' 5" and a solid defender. And like Stonezz said, I can't think of anything good for Barbosa lol.

Anyways, I don't think Boston can beat Miami so it doesn't really matter anyway.
