In Response to Re: Celts Dodged 2 Bad Backs
[QUOTE]rame Last season, when there was a lockout, you wanted Kaman to be a Celtic. This offseason you wanted Jason Thompson and Ilyasova. None of your wants came true. That's why I don't want to talk trades with you, it's pointless because it will not come true.

again, wishes are not predictions
I wanted Kaman but was well aware of the financial difficulties associated with getting him
I wanted Ilyasova OR
Thompson at the $ we gave Bass, if the team was in a position to have 6-7 million in cap space, which it quickly became apparent wasn't going to happen b/c KG/Green were asking for twice what I hoped they would command.
You can make comments like the above, but I never predict things like player movement or what the team 'will do' I simply present realistic scenario's that are always accurate, well thought out, fair to both sides, and interesting to discuss. Beats the posts you make and time you waste on trolls.
Remind me again why you felt the need to harp on Bass being a BYC player until Jan 15th, when the premise of any trade involving Bass would obv happen after Jan 15th? Did you even know about when the restriction was up? surely you must have realized this is a Jan 15th-Feb 28th type trade, not an Aug-Dec trade, right?
It is like most of these differences of opinions that we have Fierce. I make a reasonable suggestion/wish, NEVER give it a high % of happening, and you jump in with reasons to find fault when really you just want to act smart and hear yourself speak... there is nothing wrong with saying Varejao would be a good guy to get and mentioning trades that are fair to both sides. I am know my ideas on team building and the direction of the club are pretty good. If you don't wish to discuss trade movement with me then please
, don't, I am confident in what I say and am made more secure in standing by my thoughts and convictions when I tear your weaker responses to pieces with facts and stats.
There is a lot wrong with the shameful way you responded to a simple future trade idea with terrible
reasoning why not to make such a trade, then desperate attempts to hide behind the BYC thing w/ Bass (pointless, nobody said trade him before 1/15) and the 'Let's see how the season goes first' BS (pointless when you have 3-4 6'8"-6'9" PF's and a rebounding issue you relentlessly brought up for years).
So overall, a -1000 for you on this issue
Now go back to the schoolyard fights you drag out with the LA teenagers, it's what you are best at
