    You are right,  I just don't see the Celtics doing it this  year.  They should clean house but to see JON out there for one minute tells you all you need to know. Doc is committed to this now flawed older team.  PP will come back and if he can get them going we will all shut up for awhile.

    Danny's on the record saying he would've traded Bird towards the end of his career.
    If this season has the Celtic's moving towards the lottery instead of the playoffs, Danny, if he follows up on what he's said, will be looking to move KG or RA.

    Danny blew this team up with the Perk trade....now he's just making moves to cover his stupidity in making that trade. His legacy is bringing in the Big 3 and getting Rondo (and wants to trade)....other than that his moves as a GM have been pathetic.

    He will not break it up yet.  When/if PP comes back, and Peitrus comes back, if we are still struggling, he will break it up.  I think two years ago he had faith, and they made it to the Finals.  Once he loses that faith, he will break it up.

     Sorry Fierce but that's wack.  If i was going to a museum maybe, but without Rondo there is no future.  it would be like taking the car that won the Indy500 from '75 to race the indy500 of 2011.  If we dump Rondo in order to preserve the grandpa three for one year, we'll be watching the antique road show.  Even Journey's reunion tour needs the new young guy for their front man.  Steve Perry can't bring it anymore and neither can the big three.  Do you really want to dump Rondo in order to keep Steve Perry? 

     It's already painful enough watching the crash and burn of KG right before our eyes, along with the tricks Rays eyes are beginning to play on him regarding the cross court passes he's getting picked off.  Ray is still money from three point land but his open drives to the basket are starting to close on him faster than they have the last couple years as well.  I'm starting to worry that once Pierce takes of the suit he'll expose that he's packed on a few extra pounds to lug around all year.

F - Gasol F - KG SF - Pierce SG - Ray PG - Dooling or new acquisition 6th man - Bass Try double teaming anyone on a line-up like that. NBA basketball today is no longer exclusive man to man defense. If everybody can shoot and score also, you can't double team or roam like what Rondo's defender is doing.

     Lakers actually really want a good point guard badly, they willingly gave up Gasol and Odom for Paul (after that trade the chances of getting Howard were very slim in my opinion. If Bynum was enough to get Howard then they would do it now in a heartbeat. Center is allready a position of strength for the Lakers. The Lakers are one of the slowest teams in the league right now. Rondo would fix that in a heartbeat and Kobe's shooting % would sky rocket. Fast guards have always been a problem for the Lakers and rondo would fix that also. The Celtics would be going all out to win with an even older team than they have now. After Miami smokes them in the playoffs the Celtics would be in a bigger mess next year with no trade bait.

    Gasol makes $18.7M and Rondo $10M ... You'd have to give them Ray Allen or Bass & JON just to make the deal work. Then where would we be? The Lakers would shave another $10M off their cap to free up for DH ... Thank you very much Fierce!

    I'm telling you ... He's a closet Laker fan ... Jeesh!

    " Rondo for Pau Gasol saves the season."

    This trade will NEVER happen under any circumstances. Let it go. 

    Rondo for Westbrook is much more realistic to contemplate. Not sure it is the right move for either team though...

    Rondo and Jermaine for Pau Gasol works.

    Ray 10m
    Bass 4m
    Rondo 10m
    JO 6m

    That's 30m in exchange for 18.7m?

    Laker fans don't want Rondo, Celtic fans don't want Gasol. Enough said.

    Why would Danny trade KG or Ray?  They are both in their last year with the Celtics.  Why trade their expiring contracts and give up the cap space for next season?  Unless you were going to get back players that would help us for the next several years, Danny wouldn't do this.  I would imagine that Danny is going to start the rebuilding process next season.

    What would be helpful is if Doc and Danny could express something about how they see the future.  We have no idea what they are really  thinking.  It would seem they are mildly delusional putting JON out there night after night thinking that they will get a different result

    In the playoffs in 2010 I remember watching JON playing for Miami and thought to myself I  had never seen such player so totally without his former talents.  To have signed him with the MLE may have been worse than moving Perkins at mid season.  Danny has followed the path of the Big Three for four years and let it destroy his personnel decisions. JON was the dumbest move ever.

    i thought the same thing about o'neal at miami. but wasn't he fairly decent in the playoffs last year? not horrible at least? we heard so much about the short preseason denying players - particularly older players - the chance to get their legs under them and that it would take several weeks to get rolling. i'm going to assume there's some truth in that and that o'neal and kg will improve their alarmingly diminished performance as this early season progresses. after a month or so if their performance still bloze, well, danny and doc'll just do whatever they gotta do.
