This word is one the Celtic fans need to understand. When DA says we would trade any of the Celtics if the right trade with value came across his desk. Let’s look into the word value and what I think it means to DA and the Celtics.
val•ue [val-yoo] Show IPA noun, verb, -ued, -u•ing. noun
1. relative worth, merit, or importance: the value of a college education; the value of a queen in chess.
2. monetary or material worth, as in commerce or trade: This piece of land has greatly increased in value.
3. the worth of something in terms of the amount of other things for which it can be exchanged or in terms of some medium of exchange.
4. equivalent worth or return in money, material, services, etc.: to give value for value received.
Value can be represented in many forms like a player, draft pick, trade exemption or a combination of any of those. Will DA find value in getting 50 cents on the dollar for KG or Ray? Will PP be shipped to his home town for the right value? Look at #3 up there. That sentence sums up what the Celtics are in for.
I am in the camp of “you have 3 hall of fame players, without getting 3 back how can you call that VALUE?” I have a sneaking suspicion that DA is in the same boat with me. Not willing to trade in his old Lamborghini for a brand new Kia. Sure Kia’s are nice and for those whom need them to make their lives work, great for them. This town is not let’s try the newest greatest thing. We have always been the lets take something that works and bring it here to make it better.
Sure I have heard about the Fakers trying to get PP from our team. I think Paul would retire rather than play for them. However the Clippers could use him and I would be more than happy to take back Caron Butler and a piece to make it work.
The thing I am trying to point out is that Danny will probably not trade any of the big 3. The value will not be there to justify it and for the sake of next season let’s hope DA sticks to the plan. I really hope our team shakes off this early season funk and rights the ship to win the Atlantic Division or at least make it in to the playoffs. You know where they’ll be no back to backs and there will be time to rest and practice. That’s the time these Celtics will be a force to reckon with as long as there healthy.
In short DA, don’t do anything that may jeopardize our future for something that won’t help now or later.
