In response to rameakap's comment:
A recent Boston sports example would be the Red Sox refusal to trade Ellsbury and Buchhold for Johan Santana after the '07 world series. they instead tried to include a guy like Coco Crisp (a Brandon Bass type), Minnesota said 'no thanks' and that was that.
Santana would have almost assuredly landed the Sox a World Series in '08 when they went to 7 games in the ALCS and were undone by shoddy starting pitching. Ellsbury hit terribly and Buch was in AAA.
But since then Santana has been hurt and got old and Ells and Buch each had 2-3 very good seasons and are still with the Sox and under age 30. Yet the Sox haven't sniffed the WS since. Any Sox fan would trade these last 5 years of those 2 players for that ONE World Series and 4 years of a medicore/hurt Santana.
So if Ainge felt we could win a title with Varejao and moved Sully for him, I would be fine with that gamble. 6 years from now we may have a very nice 18/9 PF in his prime but just be a competitive team with no real finals aspiarions. If I looked back from then i'd much rather have had taken the shots in '13 and '14 with Varejao then had no titles and a good young starter for many years ...
So many words and paragraphs. But the substance is crappy.
Just go on record and tell us if the Celts are going to trade Sully or not. That's not so hard to do, right? You're Mr. Know it All, right?
A top 10 pick the slid all the way to #21 and you want to trade him. Again, not so bright.
What is not bright is your inability to get the comparisons, understand the dyanmics involved with both teams and the risk vs. reward. It is sad really. And I already said it is less likely for a Sully trade to happen then for it to go down.
If you can't see both sides and understand what the discussion is then it is def best you continue to not particpate and do your thing... which is drive-by attacks and foolish attempts to demean others while always coming off worse in the end.
When will you man up and tell us how many wins you think LA will have and how far they will go?
