[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Ainge's old thoughts on Bird make Perkins trade less surprising : You mean 9 points and 8 boards.... holy c rap. I had no idea you could get that from a center. Oh wait give me Noah, either Lopez, either Gasol, Howard, Kaman, Deandre Jordan, Stoudamire, Okafor, Chandler, and a whole bunch of others and wow I won't miss Perk. Reality is a really bad place to live for some but you are welcome anytime. p.s. you will never find a post where I use the word complimentary because I one of the few that realize that people use complimentary when they mean complementary. Also, on his absolute best day Perk is a Dampier or Cartwright and of course whenever you use the "defensive this or that" qualifier you obviously show what you really mean. A one way player who is overrated in that skill and has absolutely nothing to offer in terms of being a complete player.

I'd take 5-6 of those 11 players you mentioned over Perk, thats it.
Clearly you are ignorant to the value of post defense and rim protection, of which Chandler, Howard and maybe Noah are the only ones on your list better. That is not opinion, STATS show his post D is elite, experts clamor to mention his value, etc. 8 boards in 27 mins on a team typically last in rebs b/c of the style they play is like a normal C grabbing 12 per in 26 mins.
Jordan and Pippen were to the Bulls the way the big 3 are for the C's. Grant was Rondo and Armstrong, Cartwright (other 2 starters) and Paxton (6th-man) were all major players on the team. Cartwright was a major part of the 1st 3-peat as a 8-5 guy. But by ages 33-35 he was nowhere close
to Perk as a defender. So worse stats AND bad on D. Terrible analogy. But like Perk he was the 5th-7th best player on a champion, maybe you and I view the word 'complimentary' differently.
But I don't know why I bother putting a known racist who has been so wrong on Perk for years in a sad and pathetic way in his place on an internet board. I pity you. You live for negative attention and to hurt/attack others. So while i provide stats and truth that prove you WRONG, you get the satisfaction of starting trouble and being an miserable person. Way to go.
If you can't see the tremendous value OKC gave up for him and his major impact on this team you are a fool. Which 99% of the board knows you to be.
I like this trade, where we get a Clips pick in the teens, a decent backup Center and a borderline star forward age 24. Yet the national media is creaming the Celts.
As always, WAKE UP DUD. So wrong.
