"No matter if we're bored or not, shoot, you still gotta go out and play the game the right way and get wins," Wallace said.
Even before Saturday's loss to New Jersey, Kendrick Perkins said that the regular season simply wasn't exciting.
"It's different [the 2007-08 season], guys are really anxious to get to the playoffs," Perkins said. "You've got veteran guys -- Rasheed, [Kevin Garnett] -- you can tell the regular season, it really don't excite them. Even with Paul [Pierce] and Ray [Allen], but you still gotta go out there and compete, it's not an excuse for losing. Guys just really want to get to crunch time."
Um, I'm not really buying the whole "bored" excuse, nor am I feeling it.  Maybe we shouldn't have so many veterans if they're all going to just coast. Maybe Danny should of added some young players with a little bit of hunger. When I see the Cavs, I see a team with hunger. Same goes for the Mavs. Let's hope this "bored" group can flip the switch come playoff time. Personally I think its a little bit of a slap in the face to Celtics fans for the vets with their combined 65 million plus they get paid to care so little.

    This is not much short of an outrage. I mean they get paid half-a-million more times than others! Have you ever heard - let's say a doctor - have you ever heard that guy saying "I don't give a damn about your disease. Maybe I will, when your organs start to collapse and you will be dying there."? Have you? I have not.
    Plus they should not "get wins". They should win!
    At least that's how I see it.

    There is no crunch time if they don't play with consistent effort and energy during the regular season. Not only do they owe it to their fans, but I think it's a matter of self-respect for themselves. Granted, not everyone is bored, but something has to change right NOW...
