In response to rameakap's comment:
What is REDICULOUS is Fierce's belief the team can get a top 7 pick in this years draft for Rondo, one of the DEEPEST DRAFTS EVER... based on a younger, cheaper no ACL injury PG in Holiday being traded last year for the #6 pick... a 19 year old with an ACL injury.
That means rebuilding teams will be lining up to swap the pick of a future all-star they will be paying 12-15m over the next 4 years for 1 year and 12m of a 28 year old Rondo before he asks for max money???
Clearly Fierce loses this one.
Until of course Rondo returns from injury 100%, better than ever and either takes a small discount to stay here for the long-term or is traded for a top 7 pick. I'll wait until that happens before I give Fierce ANY credit. Until then he is a clown and loses this argument.
How could I lose this one when Rondo is still a Celtic and George Hill is still a Pacer?
You can't even spell "ridiculous" right.
Ha... that's b/c I never use the word, only in response to you. People who lose arguments tend to resort to calling out peoples spelling, laughing a lot and misleading people about the facts of the argument, as you are doing.
Everything you bolded above simply proves my point as to why I win this one. You are so DENSE you cannot see what a clown you are.
A. You lost because the argument was NEVER 'will George Hill be traded for Rondo' what a tool you are to try and now say that is the issue. It was 'is the proposed trade fair enough value for Rondo' and I made factual intelligent posts showing it could be considered fair, even if I did not desire the trade to happen.
B. The trade is NOT Rondo for Hill 1 for 1 swap that is fair. It is:
Rondo has been replaced by Crawford in the starting lineup. it is more the slight upgrade from to Lee to Hill (that is more the real swap since their contracts are the same length) and Granger/Copeland swapped for Wallace.
Rondo is more being traded for:
1-2 first round draft picks, 26 MILLION DOLLARS in savings from the time of the trade through 2016, and the financially ability to keep BOTH Avery and Crawford if Ainge desires, while also landing a better 2014 draft pick.
