Umm Rondo is the most consistent player on the team this year, though you can put aging KG into that argument.
Rondo haters need to understand something: Rondo is not only on a very good contract but he is box office now. He's not being traded. Complain about him all you want as long as you stop fantasizing he is going to be traded. He's not going anywhere - UNLESS he gets himself suspended again later in the season or near the playoffs. So if you want, root for him to get suspended, otherwise he's not going anywhere.
I'm surprised by a lot of the belly aching in this forum after this win. The Celts are an aging team in transition with a much better record, for example, than the Lakers. Yes, there is work to do. But Green, if he does get better, will start to show it in the new year as he gets further past his surgery. Bradley will help this team a lot if he can come back strong, but again, it will take a little while.
"Dec 15th is Sunday.
We will see if there are some trades after that."
This is wishful thinking. I do think Ainge will make a move but right now he will want to play the different pieces and hopefully establish higher trade values. Also he will be waiting for a few teams to slip out of playoff contention where they may be willing to move someone good as they think about next season.
I would be shocked if any trades happen until later in January or Feb. That said I do think Ainge will make a move towards the deadline - hopefully for a big. He's going to wait and see what Bradley can do as well, that will help him to see which pieces are moveable.
For now, I would expect to see a team in transition, and the key is to keep a winning record, unlike another team that is talked about in here by trolls
