In response to Rajon-Hondo's comment:
Fire sale? Really ? TJ I don't think we can trade him back to the Nits until 3 months but we can trade him today to any team other than the nits. I'm a fan not an accountant so you may want a second opinion on that. Humpty has averaged,with the exception of last year, a double when playing 25 minutes+ per, if anyone can gussie up that pig it is DA. I hated this trade when it happened but, when you look at it objectively,it was a good move for everyone involved. PP and KG got gauranteed monies,we got 3 1sts from a win now or bust team,we got some decent young players and serious cap flexibility starting next year. What we have now is a young but experienced core, a recent All Star, Wallace , a young "potential up and comer" Brooks that has garnered interest around the league, an expiring contract that this year will be worth more than in years past a multitude of draft picks and a player that showed promise that didn't fit last years plans.
Even for us hardcore fans we will reap benefits right away,Last season this board had nothing but semantically based tiffs/fueds from a few posters,unrealistic trade scenarios and general dumb BS from June til camp. This year we have more cooking than the line in a busy restaurant. What will won't DA do next,what new identity are we going for, will Stevens be a good fit.,was it doc or DA that screwed the pooch? All this is up for grabs and relevent this time between end of season and the begining of NFLand NBA training camps. I'm not a baseball fan and usually the June,July,August months are barrren for me. This year if nothing else I will have a reason to read the sports page and post things that are actually going to/might/well maybe happenning.
I am an unabashed Celtic homer for 50 years + and am unapologatically jaundiced by my fanatical loyalty, eventhough I played D1 and have coached AAU, this off season is like Christmas in July literally for me. Between an unfortunate accident giving me more time and the happennings recently in our organization, I have almost doubled my post count and am enthused about posting enough to be accussed of being Fierce34,Employee8,ElDunker,Pud et al alter ego(s) As a hard core fan I love this s@it!!! Just sayin
You can build via the draft (slow boat to China unless you get lucky like Cavs) ... Join the Free Agent race (Not one of Boston's stronger suits) or my favorite, watch Danny horse trade and enjoy the speculation and look for opportunities he could indulge in ... Have Fun with it and don't let the Debbie Downers distract you !!!
