What are Celtic fans thinking: Oh,boy

BSR.1985 trade kg and ray for josh smith who howard said that he wants to play with, and try to get them back after the season for the minium, have rondo pierce green smith and howard next year with kg and ray coming off the bench with bass johnson and bradley off the bench dream team


Oh, boy! Why would you expect KG,and Ray to come back the following season after being traded? Won't happen guy.


ddegen146 This game is a microcosm of the true condition of the Celtics. Ainge needs to make some BIG decisions - The Big 3 must be put up for sale - Ray Allen & Garnett for sure - Rondo should be the ONLY untouchable


Some fans just don't get it, and won't get it. Thanks for not attacking Rondo, but to trade the big three is way off the mark.


Can-I-Get-A-Hot-Tub To blowup, or not to blowup, that IS the question. 

 

Nobody has the matching salary to trade for KG unless BOS is willing to take back some contracts...my guess is they're not. 

 

So...Ray Allen, possibly Pierce, I would keep Rondo and rebuild, but if Ainge wants to sell high, by all means.


Trade talks ruled the night. Not surprised.


From Milan To Minsk Its over the Celts need to trade Garnett or Allen for some picks or a rebounder


What! Garnett is the only one on the glass for the Celtics. Look at the box score for the past six games.


paleguysrock can ppl please stop doing random hypothetical trades. no here can do math hah. and seriously besides rondo, ray, paul. they have nothing that other teams want. grind it out. toss JO(I feel bad that he could last the season) and pick up some random big dude w/ experience. thats all they can do. and hope for bulls or miami to be injure in the playoffs. banner 18 ftw


Some thoughts of mine to. Keep the core, and look to replace JO some how.


TheDynastyBball it's not juts back to backs..they played 5 games in about 10 days, and two of those were overtime....so on game 6 - a second back to back in the last 5 days, they had nothing.


I agree, but Doc needs to think about changing his rotation in a second game of a back-to-back.

Shawn, I actually would like to see a KG and Allen for Smith trade. I really want to see those guys retire as Celtics, but something HAS to happen soon to begin to transition this team to the Rondo era, if we are going to keep Rondo. What we saw last night has convinced me again that this situation is hopeless as it stands, and that either the Big Three has to go, or Rondo has to go. I would even trade Pierce at this point. It's painfully clear that they will NEVER EVER get it that they have to key off Rondo now. Ainge must choose, either the Rondo Road, or the Big Three Trail. I say go for the Rondo Road. If we could get Josh Smith, I would jump hard for that.

It just has reached a point where the stubbornness of the Big Three is too intransigent to work with anymore. Those three guys insist on getting their shots, and on shutting Rondo down, even though it's clearly counterproductive to do this. It's Rondo's penetration that breaks down the D and gives the Big Three motion offense a chance to work. It's simple, really. When Rondo plays aggressively, he attracts multiple defenders, and because he passes well, this creates opportunity for movement offense to work better, because it gets the D off balance.

Make a choice, Ainge. Trade the Big Three or Trade Rondo.

I don't think he'll move Rondo, as much as believed he would a month ago. I think Ray is moved first. Because Pierce is staying a Celtics, and KG is too important to the defense, and he has no barring usually on Rondo's offense. But I think the synergy you have been preaching Paul is still there, but old legs, and tired legs took care of the Celtics last night. Come playoff time this team will have no more back-to-backs.

I hear you, and I hope you are right. But what is eating at me right now is only three shots, if that many, for Rondo in the first quarter, and only six all night. to me, that's not the synergy we need

Blame on Doc once again. I wish Pop was our coach sometimes. He utilizes every tool he has to its potential. Smart and conservative.
