The baffling part of the celtics-nets deal is exactly what the Celts planned on doing at point guard. Even if Williams, Delk, or Bremer can handle it (or Cook), they aren't playoff level point guards. Right now, they look a lot like the `90s Bulls. Given that, it may be best if they give the triangle offense a chance. They seem to indicate that the offense will run through Walker, so this will be a natural fit. Walker it like Pippen, the great ball-handling forward. Pierce is the superstar creator at guard, like Jordan, and Delk or Williams is like BJ Armstrong, the "point" guard who's really a shooter. This may also present a way to get Baker touches even with ball hogs like Pierce and Walker next to him. Plus, if the Lakers ever meet Boston in the finals, the green guys will be able to dissect the triangle on the Laker's side ... hopefully

I dont think that the Celtics can stop the LAkers...they have no one that can guard Shaq straight up..and I dont think they would "disect" the triagnle offense.

In the recent years no one has been able to handle the Lakers. The Kings were pretty close, but couldn't handle the playoff pressure.
