    35+% on Globe Poll want Rondo Traded

    and suggests there is a "high" probability that Doc was referring to him when he made the trade threat.

    Contrary to Fierce's respected logic that Rondo will not be traded, primarily because of the financial impact of Rondo related sales revenue and mid-season chemistry problems, I believe he will be traded by the deadline supported by the following logic.

    If the team wins only when Rondo plays well...and Rondo doesn't play well consistently enough to be a .600+ team...then the Celtics have to trade Rondo...and if they have to trade Rondo... then this year is the time to do it...because we can't win this year without adding a quality center and a scoring threat (and presumeably giving up at least 3 of our existing contributing players)... to get the necessary players onboard to compete for a Championship.  We're not going to win this year anyway, with or without a big trade becaue of chemistry integration... so might as well get it done NOW, otherwise next year will be a transition year too.  

    My dream trades:

    Rondo and Melo for Cousins and a pick.

    Some combo of Terry, Barbosa, Lee, Bass, draft pick(s) for a serviceable PG (Evans, and/or a cheaper temporary acquisition in Bledsoe) and 3 point threat SG (Mayo or Reddick or worst case cheaper temporary acquisition in Jimmer!)

    Cousins and Evans at least preserves some chemistry those 2 playes had with the Kings.

    People just sick of this roller skating diva.  For all the thrills he brings, he delivers many more uninspired performances.... Imagine this guy on Broadway... standing ovation one night... boo's and thrown tomatoes the next 3...

    Someone has to really want Rondo to make a trade like this.  I don't see the Kings looking at him as the franchise player they have to move to Seattle with.

    The problem is the stars, KG and Pierce, are not getting it done.

    And Rondo is to blame?

     



    No, but Rondo without stars is leading us nowhere, he isn't that type of player. He needs to be a 4th option and that ain't happening when we're rebuilding. So yeah trade him. Our starting backcourt with Rondo and Bradley can't score enough points.

    No one wants Rondo... for the exact same reason that many of us at BDC have tired of him and want him gone. Very high maintenance. Probably the highest in the league including Cousins.

    Flipping him for high draft pics is our best option IMHO as the team rebuilds.

    So why not just surround Rondo with stars again?

    Eureka!!!

    Why didn't anyone think of that until now???

    Simple enough!

    Lets make it happen.

    3 more future HOFers plus Rondo .... here we come.

    Pierce 5-17 for 12 points. 

    That is the problem right there. Pierce has been playing terrible of late. Rondo had 17 points 13 rebounds and 7 assists. Rondo will not be traded.

    Yeah lets blame Rondo for Garnett and Pierce shooting 8- 28. Its the 2nd horrible night for both guys in the last 3 games.

     Lets blame Ronod,because Doc can't get Terry involved in the offense or that Terry is too old.

    Lets blame Rondo for Bass stinking this year.

    Lets blame Rondo for Pierce getting back doored all night.

    Pierce just 3-15 FGs for 12 points.

     




    Rondo obviously not doing his job getting Pierce the right shots. ONly 7 assists? Well below his average..thats why we lost

    and Rondo had the WORST +/_ differential on the entire team. Why? becuase he had 5 turnovers, two critical steals in the final minutes that cost us the game and his man scored 40!!

    My sources tell me the +/- is the most important stat that points out who to blame for loses.

    It's true! Waive Pierce in the summer and trade some of the role players and the Celtics can go after Josh or Big Al in the summer.



    Pierce, Ray and KG are Hall of Famers, they led us to the title in 08, you can't seriously believe Big Al or J-Smoove will make us contenders again? Rondo needs Hall of FamerS to bail him out.
