    Guess we'll know who the real Celtic fans are.

    The fastest team to reappear in the Finals, from one generation to another, is the Lakers. In 1991 Magic Johnson lost to MJ. The next time the Lakers were in the Finals was in 2000 with Shaq and Kobe. So that's 9 years. No other team went from one Finals to another faster than the Lakers.

    There are 2 ways to build a championship team. It's either building through the draft of through free-agency.

    The best way to go is building through the draft.

    Expecting big name free-agents to sign with Boston in the next few years is not being realistic.  Boston is not a city like LA or NY.

     

    So why 10 years?

    Lebron will still be playing at a high level in the next 5 years.

    Durant will still be playing 10 years from now.

    Those two players will be obstacles the Celts have to overcome. If the Celts were to win a championship in the next 10 years, they'd have to do it against Lebron or Durant. And that's without having KG and Pierce anymore.

     

     

     




    lol you have no idea what will happen to either of them in the next 10 years. they might tear an ACL, or even get traded to the Celtics. In place of KG and Paul they might get 2 better players or at least equal. They might get 3 players they might get 4 who knows.

    Maybe, but if you look at the history books, no team has been able to do it in less than 9 years.

     

    And because of the new CBA, gone are the days where you can have 3 superstars in one team.

     




     

    all the more reason to dump KG and Paul today. The Celtics still wouldnt have won the championship this year by picking up Cousins and/or jsmoov but they'd have started to rebuild faster then they could through the draft.

    Agree with you on that one. 

    But since Ainge didn't dump KG and Pierce, this is going to be like how Bird, Parish, and McHale ended their careers, a playoff exit!

    Ainge had a choice earlier today. But he chose to think short term instead of long term. Now it's looking like the Celts will make the playoffs and exit in the 1st round.

     




     

    Dumping them wouldn't have been the popular move  so Danny played it close to the vest. Thanks Danny!

    Actually the Chief lived on with the Bulls and won another championship! Chief!

    '69 Celtics

    '74/'76 Celtics

    '81 Celtics

    Since I could see what the ignored board bully wrote in 0033's responses, just wanted to point out that the 70's championship teams won with ONE regular from the 60's dynasty - Hondo, only 5 years later, fitting that rhymes with Rondo, b/c he'd be the one holdover from '08 the C's could win with in the next few years

    The '81 Celtics won with ZERO holdovers from the '76 team just 5 years earlier...

    C'mon this is BASIC Celtic history....

    Another example would be two teams most Celtic fans would be familiar with... the '81 and '86 Rockets our C's beat in two seperate finals

    They were two COMPLETELY different teams... only ONE player, Robert Reid, was in the rotation of both clubs

    Re: It will take another 10 years

    Funny thing is Ainge was so cocky he wouldn't let the same thing that happened to Red happen to him ("I would have traded Larry Bird"). Now he finds out it ain't so easy. 

    In retrospect giving KG a no trade clause wasn't so smart. 

    Fierce not sure about 10 years but the franchise is going to struggle for a number of years due to this. Ainge held on to the core too long. The trade deadline deals he had to consider weren't very good but they will look awful good this time next year. 

    Ainge has been pretty good at drafting value and turning them into veterans in search of a ring (Allen, KG) and I could see him pulling something like that off again but it may not happen anytime soon

    Re: It will take another 10 years

    fierce 34,

    your wrong heres why about the celtics. When rick p. was running the team he SCREWED THE CELTICS VIA THE CAP..THE CS WERE SO FAR OVER THE CAP..IT TOOK A DECADE + TO GET OVER IT...KG has signed for 2 years passed this..and paul has just this year on his deal..IF the CELTICS dont sign paul..kg may retire or want to be traded..SO in 1 YEAR THE CELTICS can have 28 million free under the cap...

    The celtics have cap space in that instance..boston can make a trade to get good players...Its not about the best players..Look at what detroit did at there last title..They had no star they had all good players..Look at dallas who BEAT THE HEAT..They had dirk..but no one else..who was a star..The celtics can build a deep team with players we dont know to contend..Boston has to get players and coaches WHO PLAYERS WANT TO PLAY FOR...PLAYERS WILL PLAY FOR DOC...Thats the difference of now verses the pitino ERA..AND THE CELTICS HAVE RONDO or THE NEXT YONG GOOD PLAYER OR PLAYERS WHO A FREE AGENT OR A PLAYER TO BE TRADED WOULD SAY..hey ill go to BOSTON..LIKE WITH KG..


    Sure Boston isnt the FA destination on a players first option...But an agent would say...Go to Boston if they have A rondo, or the next star player..imagine you on that team...a PLAYER WOULD SAY..HEY ILL GO TO BOSTON...THATS WHY WERE NOT IN A BAD PLACE AS CS FANS..

    THIS ISNT THE late 90s.

    Re: It will take another 10 years

    lets say the cs sign pierce..this summer..kg has 2 years left..so paul may sign 2 years at 20 million...

     

    So basically were looking at this..If paul doesnt sign with the cs boston may be 2 years ahead..if they sign pierce and have kg and Jason terrys deals all run out on the same year..that would be 30 million plus freed on the cap...

     

     Boston can over pay for a free agent..and get there friends in the tune of other players to play with boston..

     

    lets say..but who knows boston can look at these players...

    1. kevin love

    2. josh smith

    3. chris paul

    4. brandon jenings

    5. igudalla

    6. bynum if healthy

     

    then there other players who we dont know.

    But will Miami have LeBron, Wade & Bosh or even two of them? In 2014-15' they are comitted to $61M for those three players. With the impending Luxury Tax they will have to fill out their team with all aging vets at VM and newbies cause they don't have the revenue stream that the Lakers have to pay the exponential tax penalties for doing so ... they will implode. That's why OKC had to choose between Harden and Ibaka cause the days of three Superstars is almost over.

    This changes the landscape for all teams. Any team that can forge together two superstars or near superstars with a supporting cast of affordable ballers that have chemistry, coaching and heart will be able to get to the big dance much easier than historically possible as a result of this new CBA. Get it?

    Well, at least all the fair weather fans who wanted to see KG and PP retire in green - because they don't understand the reality of the NBA - won't be around polluting this board with nonsense.  Well Celtics fans, brace yourselves, we're heading back to the early-mid nineties, but, at least you'll be able to dab your eyes and sniffle when you watch KG and PP retire in green.

    Personally I thought we should have gotten a big at all costs. Our rebounding is atrocious....and it was most glaring need

    No the Lakers will not implode because of the Luxury tax.  Their payroll after the end of next season only has one player under contract.  That leaves plenty of room to sign Howard to max deal and another player to a similar, but not necessarily a max contract.

    Lame rame, stop being a fool!

    The NBA draft lottery only started in 1985.

    There was no salary cap before 1984-85.

     

    You really think the rules of the NBA in 1976 and 1981 are the same as today?

     



    +1 the current CBA is a completely different beast! 10-years to rebuild is a good estimate!

    If it is truly a fixed automatic 10 years then yeah, we have got to blow it up and rebuild ASAP.  It is more about timing and luck to get players like LeBron or Durant.  Durant could have been ours if the ping pong ball went a little differently.  Arm chair GM is interesting but it is hard to tell what is the definitive right thing to do with something like this over the course of 10 years.

    Re: It will take another 10 years

    Ainge tried to blow it up! 

    An interesting (and not all that surprising) twist in yesterday's events. Turns out that KG's loyalty (and no-trade clause) are why he's still in Boston.

    Celts catch Crawford | Boston Herald

    According to several accounts, though, talk between Ainge and the Clippers continued right up until the final hours yesterday. Garnett said during All-Star weekend that he would not waive his no-trade clause, and held true to his vow despite added pressure from Clippers guard Chris Paul. According to a league source, Paul called Garnett and said that if he was open to joining the Clippers, then Paul would make it happen. Garnett, though, declined, expressing a desire to remain a Celtic.

    If you were in the blow it up group, don't blame Ainge (well, at least not for his deadline efforts). This was all KG wanting to stay here and ride it out with this group.
